Skulls & Shackles
A fiery red-head who is a passionate preistess of Besmara
Crowned with a mane of fiery red locks, Sandara looks like someone not to be crossed. Yet the smile lines at the corners of her eyes and the easy way she holds herself hint at a lighter side.
She dresses to accentuate her figure, and her whole appearance speaks of the sea, from the seagull feather in her tricorne hat to the sailor tattoos on her arms and the clay pipe thrust into the corner of her mouth.
Life is never easy, and Sandara Quinn’s life has been typical of that truism.
Sandara’s calling came one night when a fleet of fishermen, which included her father, was lost in a powerful storm. Sandara prayed to Besmara the Pirate Queen, the goddess of piracy, strife, and sea monsters, and when her father returned the following day, weather beaten and half-drowned but still alive, Sandara knew the goddess had answered her prayers. Soon after, Sandara began devoting her time to the worship of Besmara, eventually setting up a small chapel on the Hell Harbor docks dedicated to her.
On Sarenith 11th Sandara’s beloved father died, and that made her decide it was time for a change of pace. She left Hell Harbor and took to the sea, determined to live her life to the hilt, not rot away in some forgotten port. She only made it as far as Port Peril, however, before she fell afoul of Captain Harrigan’s press gang and ended up aboard the Wormwood. There are worse places to be than a pirate ship, however, and Sandara has taken to her new surroundings like a fish returned to the sea from which it was born.
She still bears the raw scars of grief from burying her father, but knows enough to mask that grief on a vessel such as the Wormwood. Sandara plans to make the most of her present situation, intending to spread the word of her goddess while expanding her horizons at the same time.
