The Captain,
Clinton War AS XXXVII


Lord Captain Gwydion "The Redfist" MacBairn, late of Limerick, Lisbon, Venice, Paris and London. 



Born on or about November 12th, 1564 in Limerick, Ireland. Gwydion is the son of Hugh MacBairn, a relative of both the FitzGeralds and O'Brians, and was also an armsman for the Earl of Desmond, Gerald Fitzgerald.
Gwydion spent his early years at Limerick Castle, until his father's lord, the Earl of Desmond was arrested by Sir Henry Sidney and locked in the same Limerick Castle.
Hugh MacBairn left with James FitzGerald to oppose the English occupation, leaving his infant son with his mother and the O'Brians, whose protection was never to be forgotten by the lad.
The day before Gwydion's ninth birthday, the Earl of Desmond, Gerald Fitzgerald

You are The Cap'n!

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.
