Savage Tide Pathfinder Style
Harliss Javell was the captain of the Slippery Eel, which was destroyed when Vanthus activated the Shadow Pearl.
Harliss is a bold beauty with raven-black hair that flows like the deepest shade of midnight against her deeply tanned skin. She wears tight leather armor studded with fire opals and pearls and wields a curved rapier and dagger (her signature weapons) in a blinding display of swordplay.
Harliss was a captain for the Dragon Armada, smuggling goods here and there, until one fateful trip to Kraken’s Cove to ship some exotic animals. There, she met Vanthus, who appeared to be a customer, but who ended up as nothing but a thief. He attempted to steal a valuable pearl that was destined for Talshuta but Harliss caught him in the act. When Vanthus tried to escape, he accidentally dropped the pearl, activating some kind of foul magics. Most of the crew of Harliss’ ship and the other pirates in the Cove were turned into ravenous monsters.
Harliss managed to fight her way into the caves, trying to find the proprietor of the cove, a man named Kigante, but alas, he was found dead, killed by his own men when they had changed and turned against him. She sent her first mate, Drevoraz , to strike vengeance against Vanthus, who she thought would return to the Vanderboren Manor. She was wrong, and when the heroes caught met her, battling savage men in the caves at Kraken’s Cove, she told them of what she did, and, when told of the truth (that Vanthus was an outcast from the Vanderboren family and that he would not return to the Manor), she felt sorry and told the heroes to hurry to Talshuta if they wanted to save their employer.
She offered the party a fine pirate vessel, the Sea Wyrven. They parted ways, and the heroes haven’t seen her since.
