A veteran sailor and adventurer.
He doesn’t appear to be much of a fighter, and probably relies on his skillful commandeering to get out of tight situations. He is not one to back down from a challenge.
Vernon himself isn’t a pathfinder, but he is often employed by the society due to his skill and experience at the helm. He’s been sailing out of Absalom his whole life, and is well known in all the coastal cities of the Inner Sea.
