Kingdoms of Breath and Cloud
Liam Redmaine is a younger cousin to Cor Redmaine, the Lord Captain of the Dire Fleet. He was given captaincy because of his familiar relations, and has only a minimal amount of experience with anything nautical. He is a slender, entitled, and jealous man, and often overlooks the many things he does not know, as if he did. However, between the power held by his cousin and the gold he carries, he maintains control through bribery and aspiration, rather than competence – and sometimes, that’s good enough.
