"Victory is a far-flung shore. Mark the skies, abide the tides, trust to your crew—and she will be yours."
The only daughter of Bloefhis, former captain of the League of Lost Bastards, Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn served as a member of flagship’s crew until the day she learned that her father had consorted with the Sahagin. Betrayed and angered, she challenged Bloefhis to single combat on a deserted isle in accordance with pirate custom. She returned alone, and assumed leadership of the Lost Bastards.
Thereafter, she sailed the high seas in the tradition of her people, the Sea Wolves, and discovered a safe route across the Indigo Deep to the recently discovered western continent. She is also known to have sunk an "invincible" fleet dispatched by the northern nations beyond the Bloodbrine Sea. With such accomplishments to her name, she entered the Trident, and emerged the victor. She has stood at the helm of Limsa Lominsa as Admiral since.
Though Merlwyb has spent most of her forty-two years joyfully upon the seas, she can scarcely afford to sail the waves as Admiral. Instead, she indulges her second passion—fine wines. It is said her particular favorite is a deep chalice of Lohmani red.
Annihilator & Death Penalty: Once the property of the infamous pirate king, Mistbeard, these muskets are rarely parted from Merlwyb’s side. She is rumored to have pulled the shorter of the two out of her pocket, and with it put paid to her father—hence its name, Death Penalty.
