Hanna Von Bastion
Hanna is a life long “friend” of Loria Silvertree. She is Captain of the Maelstrom, a frigate that makes berth in Waterdeep and runs up and down the Sword Coast. Hanna and her crew are commissioned as privateers that do occasional transports of people and goods for the lower court of Waterdeep. Hanna is a beautiful woman by any standards but is also a cruel taskmaster over her all male crew. She has a reputation for disliking men. She is a skilled fighter and sailor but lacks in diplomatic traits. Her reputation is tainted by questionable choices concerning life and death on the high seas. She has never been offically accused of any wrong doing.
