Captain of the Pegasus
A human with sun-bronzed skin and a steely gaze, Tess is an experienced and talented airship captain with a steady hand and a sixth sense for maneuvering her ship. While technically a mercenary, Tess has worked for House Kestrel for long enough that she seems like a bona fide employee. Tess is hard but fair, and has a voice accustomed to barking orders from the helm. A second impression usually reveals her dry sense of humor, opinionated politics, and fierce dedication to her crew.
