Master and Commander
Captain Morris was once captain of the Fair Lady, destroyed by Reginald on the return to Taraheil. He now captains a new ship, the Absolute Dominion. He met the party while they were in Eingazal, and cut a deal with them to repair his ship in exchange for transporting them to Taraheil. After Reginald downed his ship and killed his crew, Morris returned to Marion's estate to continue working with the party. The reason for this is that he values personal freedom and the exhilaration adventure brings, and he believes the party can fund him if necessary and will find no shortage of danger in their search for the Manual.
