Hearts of Iron: The Serpent's Skull
Cleric of Nathys and Former prisoner in the ship's brig.
Jask claims was once employed by the Sargavan government, but when he uncovered evidence of corruption involving illicit deals with the Free Captains of the Shackles, Jask confronted his superior, only to be betrayed and framed for the same crimes. Faced
with imprisonment, Jask fled all the way to Corentyn, where he lived for a decade before a Sargavan agent caught up with him and put him in irons.
Jask is a middle-aged, plain-looking Garundi man with hair starting to gray and watery eyes. When the PCs first met him on the beach, all he had were ragged clothes and manacles that bound his wrists behind his back. Now that his belongings have been returned he seems every bit the cleric he claimed to be.
Jask is curious and eager, especially when presented with new knowledge. He is relieved to have been granted a reprieve from returning to Sargava—this, combined with the fact that he survived the wreck, has made him practically giddy with delight.
One of the incriminating papers he found so long ago indicated that one of his superior’s contacts in the Shackles was a man named Avret Kinkarian. Kinkarian’s ship, the Brine Demon, reputedly wrecked here on [[Smuggler’s Shiv]]. He knows it’s a long shot, but Jask would love to track the ship down and explore the wreck on the off chance there could be more evidence somewhere aboard to prove his innocence.
