Conchobhar Turlach Shortstone
Conchobhar Shortstone is a handsome, honey-tongued gnome who wears a foppish purple hat, an eye patch, and a white silk shirt, and carries a dandyish cane. His appearance is that of someone pretending to be a pirate, rather than a true buccaneer. Conchobhar is a professional gambler who made the mistake of drinking with the Wormwood’s crew one night and failed to notice the cosh in a crew member’s hand until it was too late.
Conchobhar is resigned to his fate but is determined to make the most of it, as he’s always yearned for the sea anyway. One thing dominates Conchobhar’s thinking—himself.
