Appearance: Tall, broad, likes to take care of his clothing and appearance.
Personality: Charismatic, flirtatious, personable, serious when needed
Basic History: Ike has been a friend of Captain Kaylock for a long time, and has been on many voyages with him. He has always loved travelling to new locations, it's just a shame there's so much ocean between the land. He had promised himself not to continue these trips, but the money is good, and the sights are better.
Relationship to the Captain: He's Captain Kaylock's most trusted companion, and Ike trusts him in return. He doesn't want to admit that there is an evident decline in his friend's sanity.

Chief Steward ⋆ Mid-Late 20s ⋆ Magical

Duties: Directs, instructs, and assigns personnel with multiple tasks, assignments, and duties
Appearance: Hair often in a bun, a brooch at the neck, and likes to wear tailed coats
Personality: Methodical, logical, practical, conceited

Passenger ⋆ Late 20s/Early 30s ⋆ Non-Magical

Duties: To relax, perhaps take on medial duties, and pay up at the end of the trip
Appearance: Long hair, flowing dresses, and a floaty shawl
Personality: Enigmatic, persuasive, passionate, flighty
Basic History: Celeste comes from a rich family, and despite being able to afford luxury accommodation, she has opted for a more authentic experience. She dabbles in tarot readings, and has soon found herself rather attracted to Mr Redfern.

He can be found up until the small hours of the morning working on little inventions and contraptions.
Relationship to the Captain: The captain pays well, and seems to be confident with his actions - that makes him nervous. But he is a little too shy to express this to anyone.

Additional Information
All characters are adaptable and adjustable. They can be any ethnicity/nationality/religion/orientation/etc, and their headcanons can be altered. I'd like to keep the primary personality traits and main backstory, but additions can be made to these. You can find Captain Kaylock here.
