Bio:

Reginald “Darkie” von Vliet joined the ranks of the River Raiders along the Sellen at a young age. He pirated along the rivers as a crewman aboard the Seaweed Scourge, and he made a living for themselves upon the adage, “You Have What You Hold.”

Whilst in port, the captain of Seaweed Scourge came across a witch. Normally, a woman onboard would be seen as bad luck, but the captain took a fondness to the witch and to her magical prowess, using her as a medium between himself and Besmara, the Pirate Queen. Years passed without much interaction between Reginald and the witch, despite a casual working relationship, since the witch was always with the captain and he was always working the deck and looting ships.

Reginald was nicknamed “Dark Water,” by the crew due to his talent for taking ships by night, and for ordering the darkest bock of any tavern. He learned how to fight with the veteran corsairs of the Seaweed Scourge, and earned respect for his finesse over brute strength. He’d been challenged on more than a few occasions over a matter of honor or ‘allegedly’ shirking his other duties as a sailor, and would best the brutes by show of swordsmanship. The crew would put to port, and pay up the money they owed Reginald by ordering, “A round o’ ya darkest, for Darkie and his poor bastards!”

The duo eventually found themelves in Restov, laying low from Irovetti’s agents. Upon hearing of this expedition into the Stolen Lands, Reginald figured that he can lose whatever agents are still on his tail as well as become a legitimate agent of Restov. If nothing else, perhaps that might give him a bit more political protection if Irovetti’s agents should find Reginald again.

After spending a short time in the Stolen Lands and finding there was no money to be made, Darkie and Iolana decided to move on in search of a more profitable place to lurk in.

A little over a year after they disappeared, Ioalana and Darkie resurfaced in Dhunmoor and made the PCs an offer to help them rule their kingdom. After some hesitation and discussion, the PCs relented and allowed the two to join the ruling council.
