I am the doctor aboard the ship "The Absolution". I was recruited into the privateer vessel by my long time acquaintance Harland Abney O'Connell, who I am proud to call my captain. I lost my father to the plague before the war, and my deteriorating health, and strange condition are to be attributed to the patients I had cared for before my time on the ship. Currently, I am training an apprentice, and raising a kraken in addition to keeping our pilot medicated, and everyone else alive. We are time, and dimensional travelers - we never are in one place for too long.
AH, so that was teh source of the problem. Unfortunately I found the poor dear wandering around, but I'm no doctor, nor an engineer, so there was'nt much I could do when he stopped normal function.
I believe I must owe you a favour.
