The Aia Chronicles
The overworked deckhand on the Lightning Trident
John ran away from home at age 9 and ran into Kryx at the Noran docks. After hearing the boy’s story, Kryx said he could talk to Lianna about working aboard her ship. Lianna was delighted, seeing a bit of herself in the young lad, and invited him aboard as a deck hand.
It’s been a year since John joined, and although he misses his mother sometimes, he feels welcome and at home on the ocean with Lianna and the crew.
