It is undetermined in which specific faith the Reverend Captain is ordained. The depth of his knowledge in the esoteric, occult, and strange sciences suggests he has directly studied under the tutelage of their masters. He is well versed in many non-denominational deities, spirits, universes and ghosts as well.
The Reverend Captain is skilled and knowledgeable in the arts of necromancy, prescience, and divination. In addition to his aetheric spirtual studies and practices, the Reverend is a tinkerer, demonstrating extraordinary prowess with all things mechanical and electric. He does not let many objects exist in their natural state. He is often found with an large array of tools, drivers and blades spread upon his operating tables, the workings of many machines scattered about in various stages of dissection and creation.
The Reverend Captain is occasionally difficult to converse, as his mind is sometimes not present in the earthly realm, meditating or having succumbed to his weird inner thoughts and language. He spends his spare time sailing the inland seas in preparation for the launching of his airship, the USAS C. E. Rosendahl.
Historical and daguerreotype records indicate that the Reverend Captain has lived and traveled many years. Whether this anachronistic curiosity is due to long life or some strange chronal abeyance has yet to be determined.
Hailing from Chicago, he was born in Michigan, and is well versed in many trades mechanical, electrical and phantasmagorical. Rumor has it his familiar is one Lady No Lucky, well versed in the spirtual and musical, and known to keep good spirits amongs the RLGEMS and crew of the Rosendahl.
Thank you for your prompt acceptance of my acquaintance request. As I stated in my request, you have piqued my interest and that which interests me must be explored. I look forward to our discourse via this Aether-web.
Your daguerreotypes are quite remarkable, sir. I must ask, forgive my forward nature if you will. Do you use a traditional nomenclature for your custom weaponry? Would they work with the addition of some gas-propelled/gas-fired mechanism?
