Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: Chardner stands at 5 foot 8 inches, and is of medium build. Young and fit, he can generally hold his own in a fight (and sometimes has to if he's had a little too much to drink!)
Personality: Chardner has a bad tendency to lose control of himself under the influence of alcohol. He doesn't have the cut-off point some people seem to where he registers the difference between "I'm being funny" and "I'm being an ass." On-board, where he has limited access to alcohol, it's not such a problem. On shore it can be more of an issue.
History: If it weren't for his unpredictability, Chardner might be one of the men set to guard cargo. He was trained as such as an apprentice, and has more experience than most with the crossbow and dagger. However, his behaviour is thought to make him too much of a risk to place in any post where he was constantly handling weapons, so he was instead placed as a regular SeaCrafter. He still doesn't understand quite why this is - sure, he's behaved badly, but he said *sorry*!
