Area of Operation Oyster Cay (mainland)
Vessel Beckoning Nereid
Wide Olga is so named not only for her girth but also for her enormous, toothy grin. Her full build and tight-cropped hair give her the appearance of a stocky cabin boy, but even in silhouette her athleticism and physical confidence mark her as captain. Her fury at her former lover Havalas Grudd has had no chance to cool, as her first mate Sinserra (CE female human rogue 2) continues to fan the flames of their fallout. Like her counterpart on Grudd’s vessel, the Scylla, Sinserra seeks to fill Wide Olga’s boots, and the two first mates have formed a tentative truce in order to ensure one another’s promotions. Without Sinserra’s goading, Olga’s mood toward her paramour would likely soften, and after a good few ales she has even been known to call for a message of truce to be sent to the Scylla. Unfortunately for Oyster Cay, such orders are always intercepted by Sinserra and forgotten by Olga in the morning.
