The Survivors of Lemuria
Young, yet Ratty looking merchant ship captain
Kumar is the captain of the merchant vessel Common Ore. His ship travels between Kajalla and several ports on the island of Nabor regularly, with occasional stops in Tolepur. His typical cargoes are copper and iron ore (and sometimes steel) outbound, with fruits and cheap wine inbound. As he says, it’s not going to make him wealthy fast, but it’s a living. His ship is generally avoided by the pirates, apparently because they wouldn’t make much money looting his low-value cargoes. Nevertheless, Kumar is related to Karthik, the chairman of the Council of Kajalla, which gives him some political influence and information. Kumar keeps his ears open and usually has a fairly good idea of what’s going on in the western part of the Lemurian Sea.
