Personality and interests

Eli lives for the climb. His life is spent between the Seraphim and the Crazy Cog, where he rents a small room above the bar.

He loves to fly and he loves to drink and he talks about the Maelstrom like she is his lover and worst enemy.

He is calm, crafty and tactful.


He was born and grew up in the Rose District with his mother, he never met his father. He lived in relative peace there until he was 15 years old, but at that point things took a turn for the worst.

He lost his mother to disease and was thrown out of the house in which she had worked. Through guile and a great deal of luck he manage to survive a life on the streets. His vigour and perseverance turned him into the man he is today.

He managed to get himself apprenticed to the Kraken a grand old airship and never looked back. He is now the oldest and most experienced of the Skyrider captains and has made the climb more times than anyone elese.
