Dwynwen loves the sea almost more than anything else. Prefers sailing more than almost anything else and is an extremely skilled sailor. Has spend several decades at sea all total. Her other major interest in elemental magic, specifically the element of water. While she has known a number of elemental masters of air, never has been much of an interest.
While she does not prefer to be the captain of a vessel, she is a skilled officer and has served as the captain of ships on multiple occasion. As a captain or not, she is quite loyal to the crew around her. Unlike many captains, she does not like whipping her crews although will if absolutely required. Otherwise, she is firm with her crews. Part of the reason why she prefers to not serve as captain is because she does not like punishing her crews.
Her family is also quite important to her. Keeps contact with both her siblings and her nieces and nephews. A number of captains and sailors which she has sailed with are also close friends. Many of those who are human are now elderly and retired from sailing.
Has never found the right person to settle down. Even so, she has had a number of companions over the year. Might be another reason why she does not like serving as a captain because a good captain does not have relationship with anybody in the crew. As an elemental master attached to the ship, this is not a major problem however.
While aboard ship, she tends to dress in practical cloths, she does like dressing nice otherwise. Often, she will wear revealing silk warlock robes. While aboard ship, she usually dresses in tunic and pantaloons. Sometimes however, she will wear halter tops which reveal her abdomen. Also enjoys wearing nice jewelry at well.

Dwynwen is reasonable tall for a female elf at four inches over six feet, far taller than most human women. Her build is slender and athletic although obviously feminine. Even for an elf, she is quite attractive and is absolutely incredible in human terms. Relatively dark skinned for an elf, her skin is tanned from being under the sun. Has high cheek bones and a slender nose between dark blue eyes. While she may dress it elaborately while on shore, she keeps her dark blond hair in a tight ponytail down her back. As far as cosmetics, she wears relatively light cosmetics preferring almost natural tones.
While aboard ships, she usually wears either loose tunic tops or halter tops. With them, she usually wears loose pantaloon type pants. Usually wears high soft leather boots. On her side, she usually carries her sword with a harness of throwing daggers over her chest. Looks more like a sailor than a Elementalist although she does prefer blues indicating her ties to the element of water. On the trail, she will usually dress similarly. When dressing more formally, her robes are usually quite elaborate silk in various shades of blue. They are both well tailors and some are pretty revealing as well. Does also like to wear jewelry including necklaces and bracelets.

Kelroth, Dwynwen’s father, was born in the Western Empire and aspired ever since childhood to become a ships captain and owner. Extremely competent, he quickly became full owner of his ship and became quite wealthy. While he sailed all along the Western Empire coasts, he preferred the waters around the islands of Lopan and Phi. After decades of commanding his own ship, he was able to grow his fleet into two, three, and more ships. While still not a large shipping line, was able to grow it into a quite successful shipping company based on the island of Phi.
Aletai, Dwynwen’s mother, on the other hand was the younger daughter of a wealthy merchant family of the Island of Phi although not directly involved in shipboard trade. They met and even though she never really liked the sea as he did, they sound fell in love and started a family. About a decade younger than her husband, is extremely sharp as far as managing a business and was able to further strengthened her husband’s shipping company.
In general, Dwynwen had a wonderful childhood. Together her parents raised over a half dozen kids which Dwynwen was the youngest child. They were given tutors and were taught to know both the languages of Eastern and Western. With the extensive trade by the shipping company both with the Eastern Territory and Western Empire, this was seen as required learning.
Her father preferred to keep a hand in the trade and often sailed aboard ships on voyages often taking one or more of the children along. While Dwynwen’s father went of these voyages, her mother continued managed the shipping company itself. One of the reasons why it is likely she never liked sailing is that Aletai got violently sea sick. Interestingly, none of the children seemed to have a problem with sea sickness and most loved sailing much like their father. Most learned the ropes of being a sailor on these voyages with their father.
Starting to get older, it is likely that Dwynwen’s likely will retire in a few decades. It is most likely that their eldest daughter will take over management of the shipping company when their parents retire. Several of the other children have become ship captains. A couple of family members went into other trades and one of Dwynwen’s brother became a mercenary soldier.
While Dwynwen liked sailing as much as most of her siblings, she had a much stronger interest as well. Many shipping companies hired elemental masters, especially of the elements of air and water, to serve aboard ships. Ships were far more likely to survive when hit by dangerous weather or attacked by pirates or sea monsters. Dwynwen often spoke to them as she grew up and became extremely interested in elemental magic, especially in the elemental forces of water. Never as much interested in the forces of air even though she had close contact with the elemental forces of air.
Throughout her childhood, Dwynwen persuaded the elemental masters aboard ships she sailed on to teach her whatever she could learn about elemental mastery. Her parents were always supportive of her interests in these arts. When she was of an age to be apprenticed, her parents negotiated with an elemental master of water to take Dwynwen as an apprentice. Also an elf, the elemental master was a friend of the family and often sailed aboard her family’s ships.
Even during her apprenticeship, she served aboard ships. When she completed her apprenticeship, she continued sailing aboard ships, often her family’s vessels. Over the years, she gained in skill both as a master of the elemental forces of water and as a sailor. As one might expect, she has managed saved several ships she has sailed on against the sea itself and attacks both by sea creatures and pirates. During a shipwreck, she was able to save almost the entire ship’s crew.
Often serving nominally in the role of an officer, she was eventually asked by her parents to act as a captain. Even though she quickly became a skilled captain, it is something she has never liked doing. In large part, this was because she does not like heavily disciplining the crew of ships. While she has served for decades aboard ships, has had a number of other adventures including being involved in the hunt for lost treasures and going after a large base for pirate who had been attacking merchant ships all around the seas around Phi and Lopan.
Managed to acquire a number of magic items during her travels including an “Eye of the Eagle” so she can see into the distance. A number of more magic items include a number of amulets created by wizards and a number of pouches enchanted by wizard and ward master magic. Her most specular enchanted weapon is a heavy cutlass type sword. On a visit to Western Empire on one of the ship’s voyages, she had the extremely high quality enchanted sword crafted in the capital of Caer Itom.
