Freeport: City of Adventure
Captain Morgan Baumann
A fierce and vicious pirate captain
Found in: the Docks
Status: female human master
Morgan Baumann is one of the many pirates that breathe a sigh of relief now Freeport has returned to a more comfortable mix of corruption and villainy. Sure, there’s a veneer of respectability, but more and more, the pirate city of old has begun to reassert itself, which is just fine for Captain Baumann.
The reason is simple: Morgan has a history of bucking tradition. She never abided by the rules, and did her best to circumvent them whenever possible. She was the only daughter of the captain of the Headsman’s Axe, a mean ship with a meaner crew. Her father detested what he saw as a weak girl, useful only for breeding, so he dismissed her out of hand. Refusing to be passed over, she infiltrated the crew of her father’s ship, ingratiated herself with them. When she returned to Freeport, she murdered her father and claimed the ship, renaming it Kraken’s Claw.
For the next few years, she was a constant and annoying problem for a city trying to improve its image. Morgan had no use for the laws and rules of the city, following the pirate’s code of old. Any ship that sailed out of the Serpent’s Teeth was fair game, and she gained a ruthless reputation for killing everyone on board the ships she attacked.
Captain Baumann doesn’t live in the city; she has far too many enemies, but they are frequent visitors. When not at sea, Morgan, her first mate and lover Shanta Froese (male elf journeyman), and her crew can be found swilling ale in this dive.
