Description: The male genasi captain of Coin and Claw commands a handpicked crew of humanoids loyal to Iron Mercy—a loyalty that is enforced by the shipboard presence of an adult iron dragon named Graytalon; Graytalon is of Iron Mercy’s brood, and he sees to it that his mother’s interests are always represented.

Captain Ferrick takes Coin and Claw out when word returns that the storm portal endpoint has opened near a large city. Only the treasuries of rich nobles, merchants, and kings interest Iron Mercy, and by extension, her raiders. More than a few contents of petty (and not so petty) king’s vaults have been pilfered from the world and now reside in a place of honor in Iron Mercy’s hoard.
