    Shanghai Killigrew

    Gender: Female
    Race: Half Elf
    Age: 25
    Alignment: Neutral Evil
    Class (or approximation): Pirate Captain
    Power Rating: 4

    Equipment and Abilities: Shanghai is a keen shot with a pistol and a fierce duelist with her unusual cutlass. She recently aquired an airship, which has been named Magnificent Firebird.

    The airship is not in fact a zeppelin or similar, but a rather strange, obviously magical construct. It appears to have a rather conventional hull, like on you might find on a small ship, but there's no sail. Rather, attached to the sides of the hull, towards the back, are a pair of hoops. The hoops are buffered portals to the Elemental Plane of Air, allowing the pilot to control exactly how much air is flowing through at any point. The hoops are built onto flexible joints, allowing the pilot to direct the airflow and steer the ship. There are four similar, but much smaller, buffered portals to the Elemental Plane of Fire, serving as weapons: two on the bow, and one each on the port and starboard sides. The hull itself is completely smooth, as if it were carved out of one enormous tree.

    The does not need landing gear, magically keeping itself upright on whatever surface it lands on. A small sigil on the hull can be touched, making a portion of the hull slide outwards, allowing entrance.

    The interior of the ship is rather spartan: towards the bow are three cabins, one twice the size of the other two, and a meeting room. Aft is a modest kitchen, a head, and then an enormous cargo area. Above decks is equally spartan: no ropes, no beams, nothing you might find on a conventional ship.

    It's not completely flat, however: like on a normal ship, there are raised areas fore and aft. Unusually, however, these seem to be made of super-hard glass. The aft room is ten feet square, and contains a comfortable-looking seat. Sitting in the chair, one sudenly feels as if they've grown six extra limbs: the portals that serve as the ship's propulsion and weapons.

    Backstory: None as of yet.
    Theme Song: None as of yet.
