There has been no credential flashing, no mocking, basically, none of what you just posted

They arrived at the boat (after a short shopping trip), boarded the boat, went to get something to eat, and then asked, politely, to speak with the captain privately

You show up flashing your credentials and declaring, “My authority is greater then yours losers, f!!k you hahaha now do whatever I say while I mock you, hahaha,” then you’re going to get a lot of feet dragging and sullen resentment. That can be a problem.

To put it another way, think of “Archer.” Think of how often Archer behaves like this, when he’s on a mission. “Give me those instructions – let me rip them up and toss them, a REAL secret agent doesn’t need a briefing!” Now think of how many missions Archer has been on in the series, that failed miserably because of… this kind of behavior.

Hell, even the “barbarians” that Typh comes from behaved better than this.

Typh would have little reason to treat the left hand as “sinister.”

As for the rest of the trip, the Captain merely needs to give out that Typha-knee has given his parole to not attempt escape and this in combination with the King’s request that he be treated well in exchange for past considerations. The crew will accept his behavior as long as no attempt is made to leave the ship prior to delivery. Captain’s orders will be accepted.
