Edgar Swail
Life in England wasn't exciting, not nearly as exciting as the serials Edgar had spent his youth reading. He'd heard tales of men going to join whaling ships in the colonies or down to darkest Africa, but that wasn't the thrill he wanted. No the tales that interested him most were those of the men of the West Indies.

Edgar angled to get admission to one of the most prestigious academies, studied all that he could get his hands on to become the best sailor possible. He's spent what little he could get his hands on to get to the Caribbean, but now that he's here he's ready to make his name and seek his fortune.
