C. MacApp, the adventurers visit The Lake of the Specters … They see a technology based warship … they become separated, one man sees his companions drift away and go over the falls at the outflow of the lake. Later, he sees one of his companions — alive, but very much older. Some of that may be alternate timelines.
I scanned some of those pages for you to see … https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4r3a4xwku4zqwer/AABV0FCBw8uivsTqZvPx8kE-a?dl=0

Clearly she is a strong driven woman and know what she wants. If you can make a friend in high places at the same time more the better for her.

That means she has a handsome swain waiting in every port. She has no need to engage in inappropriate behavior with a guest aboard her ship. She can wait until shore leave, setting a good example for her crew.

(Emphasis: very handsome, and EVERY port. <3 )

What’s not to like?
(well, as long as one is not on the receiving end of her ire; I suspect she could be quite scathing; she may even use irony)
No wonder readers get mom/big sister vibes from the captain. She is an authority figure, after all, and she is in her role in establishing a relationship with her passengers. A responsibility which comes with the territory.
And she is quite good at it. Iron fist with the untamed barbarian, more friendly but motherly firm approach with the royal brat, and research of a compromise once boundaries have been established.
