Box of Goodwin Morin Files
- Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-1667 and start reading...
The following accounts can be traced to a single leather-bound journal originally found in a locked wooden chest alongside a sextant-like device of indeterminate origin and a shell that matches no known species of mollusc. The chest was located in a storage room in the Legscraper’s lower levels that was described as “smelling faintly of the sea”. Subsequent attempts to locate and navigate to said room have been unsuccessful thus far. The journal details the exploits of the crew of a large sailing vessel, The Tokyo Adrift, descriptions of which are largely consistent with mid-17th century galleons.
With The Tokyo Adrift
Goodwin Morin was enlisted to the crew of The Tokyo Adrift from another crew known as the Sea Ragers. Later quotes reveal that she was an experienced hand on the seas, having previously served in "the notoriously stoic and silent crew of the Sapphire Arrow". The overstaffed ship was known to work "in terrible silence, their synergy allowing for coordination without the need for shanties or work songs". Morin escaped the Sapphire Arrow and, after several days adrift at sea, came upon the Sea Ragers, drawn to their ship by "distant echoes of music".
Roughly around the time Captain Strongbody decided to focus the ship’s efforts on mussel cultivation, he recognised the need to employ someone with relevant skills and abilities to assist in this new venture. Morin was an obvious pick, her build and stature dwarfing even the captain himself. Her reputation preceded her and she lived up to the tales told of “her remarkable speed and grace in the water”. As described in the journal, “watching her work was like poetry in motion, first diving through the sea as if it were barely there only to expertly redirect her momentum to sweep up her quarry and return to the surface in one smooth uninterrupted motion”.
Morin’s hair is described as having the appearance of “cascading currents, fading from cerulean to seafoam”. Like the Immateria the ship sails on, her hair does not seem to cause objects to get wet. If the need to defend herself arose, Morin was described as arming herself with an imposing trident that “sailed through the water smoothly as she did”. By the accounts of the journal, Morin got along well with the crew of the Adrift, especially its water-dwelling members who often expressed admiration for her aptitude at diving. During her shore leave, Morin was known to frequent hot springs which she would invite the crew to, however the journal describes the conditions as "temperatures barely below boiling, liable to rend skin from bone."
Morin’s fate is ultimately unknown as the final page of the journal is water damaged, causing the ink to run and rendering it unreadable. The last available entry, dated to 1667, describes her wrestling the [REDACTED] with her bare arms however she [REDACTED] resulting in [REDACTED]
