The Aia Chronicles
The oafish cook of the Lightning Trident
Jax was cook at a dive bar in Midlin just south of Noran and on the border between Minora and Brisban. After running afoul with his employer, he joined the crew of the Lightning Trident as a sea cook and sailor (though he had never sailed a day in his life). Although Lianna was annoyed that he couldn’t tell a slipknot from a square knot, he knew how to cook better than anyone else on the ship, and no one had died from food poisoning, so she kept him around.
