Captain Abel Brine is the owner/captain of The Little Bastard. Both ship and master have a dubious reputaiton in the waters around the coast, a reputation that follows them to Avoree when they put in for repairs or resupply. Brine does very little trade in Avoree, but when he does he pays in good gold.
There are rumors that Brine is, or was, a pirate. The halfling doesn’t encourage such speculation. He and his crew can become quite unpleasant at the mere mention of the rumors.
Folk on Avoree aren’t particularly impressed with Captain Brine or his crew. People still talk about the time Hellhammer beat three of Brine’s half-orc crew on his own. After that incident, Brine and his crew were banned from The Laughing Dolphin. Now, when they come ashore they can usually be found at Avoree’s only other bar, The Gull’s Rest.
During the invasion, Brine was absent from the island. When he and his ship did reappear, the rumor was that he was off raiding vessels down the coast.
