Captain of the "Maiden's Kiss"
A native of Peace and life-long sailor with tanned, leathery skin and a rapidly graying head of hair.
Veteran sailor hired by Eugenios to lead the diplomatic/trading expedition to the Great East. The ship belongs to Eugenios and the crew nominally works for him, but out at sea Philandros is definitely the head honcho and everybody defers to him. He’s a rough, no-nonsense, gruff leader, and the men respect and fear him. He’s spent his life at sea and as little time on land as possible. He thinks Eugenios is an effeminate speck barely worth thinking about. He’s loyal to his home city of Peace, and feels a patriotic duty to warn the city of the impending invasion.
