He is a passenger on the same ship in which you start the game at the tutorial.
Has a short conversation with you. Appears to be drunk.
- "What a fabulous voyage we've shared, my friend! To Vvardenfell and new opportunities! Still reading that letter? A lover's note, hmm? No need to confirm or deny it. We all have our secrets. I wonder what Vvardenfell has in store for us! (Sailor: Jagged rocks ahead! Brace yourselves!) Well... that doesn't sound good..."
- Other than listening to what this NPC has to say for a short time, there is no other way to interact with him.
- He is not seen again after your first conversation, so it's not cleared what happened to him. Most likely, he drowned when the ship sank.
