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

Beginning as a cabin boy aboard The Tokyo Adrift, Grollis Zephyr was quickly promoted to sailing master when hyr preternatural skills at navigation were discovered. The journal describes Zephyr as “young and fresh-faced, with star speckled eyes that seem to contain galaxies within them”. The captain first took notice when Zephyr, after a full day’s shift, spent most of hyr evening above deck, watching the sky above and charting stars. Further questioning revealed that Zephyr had been “turning hyr eyes skyward ever since ze was a wee un” and that ze had kept extensive star maps for years. The journal also contains some of Zephyr’s work that the writer obtained permission to recreate.

Zephyr is described as being close to hyr fellow navigator, Yusef Fenestrate. Though their methods differ greatly, they “spend long evenings together trading stories and techniques, each an expert in their field anxious to learn more”. Between Zephyr’s knowledge of star charts and wind patterns and Fenestrate’s mastery of reading currents, they were a formidable force in setting a course for the Adrift, rain or shine, night or day.
