The Aia Chronicles
Kryx Thunderscale (Deceased)
The silent first mate of the Lightning Trident
Kryx joined Lianna’s crew shortly after she took control of The Swift Goblin. Exiled from his tribe, he had been a freelance sailor for many years and saw potential in Lianna that her crew did not. When her crew members hired an assassin to kill her while she slept, Kryx stopped the halfling from slicing her throat. Lianna and Kryx questioned then killed the assassin and returned to the ship. None of the crew would betray the perpetrators, so Lianna took them one by one to the captain’s quarters for questioning – where she instead murderd them and threw them out the cabin window. After the crew was dealt with, Kryx and Lianna went about recruiting new hands for the ships. After a couple weeks of searching and filtering, they had their new crew, and Kryx suggested changing the name of the ship, “New captain, new crew, new ship,” he growled. Thus, the Lightning Trident was born.
