Santiago Dunbar

(James Bragado)


Santiago DunbarCaptain of the airship S.S. Beatrix. Born in the Vilalba Sky Mines and raised on the skyland of Manitowak, Captain Dunbar has been around airships all his life. As a Sky Inspector in the International Constabulary, he served aboard various airships, including the Basilisk during the Evacuation of Kilimanjaro. Although decorated for his heroic deeds in this pirate battle, he lost his left arm during the crash-landing of the galleon. This led to his early retirement at the age of 29.

Shortly after, he purchased the Beatrix and began a cargo hauling venture with Josie Devereaux. Eventually, his profits allowed him to purchase the prosthetic gun-arm he now wears. Having commanded the Beatrix with a skeleton crew for far too long, he finds himself looking for a new engineer in the city of Dali to help repair an engine that prematurely malfunctioned, forcing them to land.

Since then, the two have shared a tumultuous but mutually respectful relationship.
