Bastiaen ’s Relationship Statements:
Phillipe (Paul): “I think he should have been born Vesten. The sea wolves would have welcomed him gladly."
“I remember a particularly rainy day, about a year after meeting Phillipe, when I was confined to bed with a fever. I knew how to help myself but lacked the strength to move. Phillipe stepped out into the storm without a word. I passed out an hour later. In the morning, I woke feeling much better. I was told that in the early morning, hours later, Phillipe returned with the medicine I needed. He was soaking wet; even the heavy rain wasn’t enough to wash the blood off his hands. After that I started calling him saccageur.”
Dylon (Chris): “I grew up despising pirates; the bane of merchants. Dylon showed me, however, that it doesn’t matter what you call yourself but how you live your life."
“I knew who and what Dylon was almost immediately. When you live on the sea, you can always spot a pirate. The vela carmesi, the crimson sail. I spent the first few months keeping to myself and trying to heal up. In the evenings, I would sit on the beach and look out on the water. I knew a ship wasn’t coming for me but I still wanted one to. Dylon randomly showed up after a few weeks of me doing this and would sit a distance away and practice knots. It took a few more weeks before we started speaking. Since then he has been a good friend and trusted companion. You never know where you’ll find a good person."
Valere (Flint): “My father once told me that the final test of a gentleman is his respect for those who can be of no possible service to him."
“When I met Valere I was immediately impressed by his sense of honor and respect. In a way, he reminded me of my father. I remember one day when a young woman was dropped off on the island. Everyone knew she was from some wealthy family, there was no other reason she would be sent to the island. Adelina, as we learned her name, was already in bad shape when she got dropped in Shanty Town. Valere was one of the first to get to her; some of her clothes were ripped off and she had a large gash on her side. There were so many prisoners fighting. By the end of it, Valere carried her out. He was limping, had a dislocated shoulder, and three broken ribs. In the brief time Adelina was with us, we learned she was the daughter of a wealthy Vodacce family. She had been kidnapped when her father refused one of the merchant princes. Fate, in the guise of the red fever, finally let her go to her peace a few months later. All of us felt for her but I could see the sorrow Valere had in his heart for that poor broken girl.
A Merchant’s Opinions
Allende: “I know everyone else laughed at him when he said he was a prince but there is just something about him. He speaks and carries himself almost royally. I think he can be trusted and, if he is the prince, Castille could desperately use this guy on the throne.”
Sean McCorley: “Well, Sean is something else. He drinks, fights, and curses far too much for my liking but at least he doesn’t victimize the weak. Also, when he feels like talking, he has amazing stories about life on the seas.”
Bjorn Brand: “It’s nice to know someone from home. Bjorn is an educated gentleman and a great conversation companion. It’s refreshing to have a a kindred friend on this island of hell.”
