"Victory is a far-flung shore. Mark the skies, abide the tides, trust to your crew—and she will be yours."

The only daughter of Bloefhis Bloefhisyn, former captain of the League of Lost Bastards, Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn served as a member of flagship's crew until the day she learned that her father had consorted with the Sahagin. Betrayed and angered, she challenged Bloefhis to single combat on a deserted isle in accordance with pirate custom. She returned alone, and assumed leadership of the Lost Bastards.Thereafter, she sailed the high seas in the tradition of her people, the Sea Wolves, and discovered a safe route across the Indigo Deep to the recently discovered western continent. She is also known to have sunk an "invincible" fleet dispatched by the northern nations beyond the Bloodbrine Sea. With such accomplishments to her name, she entered the Trident, and emerged the victor. She has stood at the helm of Limsa Lominsa as Admiral since.Though Merlwyb has spent most of her forty-two years joyfully upon the seas, she can scarcely afford to sail the waves as Admiral. Instead, she indulges her second passion—fine wines. It is said her particular favorite is a deep chalice of Lohmani red. Annihilator & Death Penalty: Once the property of the infamous pirate king, Mistbeard, these muskets are rarely parted from Merlwyb's side. She is rumored to have pulled the shorter of the two out of her pocket, and with it put paid to her father—hence its name, Death Penalty.

Additional Information

Admiral Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn is a Sea Wolf Roegadyn who serves as the Admiral of Limsa Lominsa. She is both leader and founder of its Grand Company, The Maelstrom.

Once a member of the League of Lost Bastards and only daughter of its captain, Bloefhis Bloefhisyn, she served as a member of its flagship crew until she learned that her father had consorted with the Sahagin. In response, she challenged Bloefhis to a traditional pirate duel on a deserted island, killing him and assuming leadership of the crew.[1]

Merlwyb led the League of Lost Bastards to chart safe passage across Indigo Deep to the newly-discovered western continent, the New World and once sunk an "invincible" fleet in the Northern Empty. She returned to Limsa Lominsa in 1563 and emerged victorious in the Trident, winning the position of Admiral of Limsa Lominsa.[1] Not long after assuming admiralty, she saw to the signing of the Galadion Accord, outllawing piracy in Limsa Lominsa.

It's said that, as the forty-two year old Admiral can no longer freely sail the seas, she indulges in her second passion—fine wines—and favors Lohmani red.[1]
