Dashing captain of the Sellen Starling. Fit, muscular, middle-aged halfling. Dark, tawny skin with large watery blue eyes and pale auburn hair. Wears a fine mithral shirt and carries a gleaming rapier. A world-traveler.
She runs the Sellen Passage every few years: hauling spices north and carrying back magical hardwood from the Shudderwood that she obtains from a “crazy guy.” The trip is long and dangerous under the best of circumstances, but this year she was warned by her sometimes-prophetic acquaintance Jaydove to bring “friends” on her journey. All seemed to be going fine, but when they arrived in Thrushmoor the town was locked-up and paranoid and there was no sign of her contact.
During the solstice ceremonies in Chapter 49, she revealed that she had once been a pirate against the Chelaxian navy, and while she was at sea during that time her family was murdered and their farm was burnt to the ground.
During the Skum attack on the Sellen Starling in Chapter 50 (Part 2), Skywin was revealed to be a highly experienced Swashbuckler.
