From Ardrana

Bashimel is a Human sailor and cook from the town of Felecham. He learned to sail as a boy on Lake Colaud, working aboard the trading vessels that ran between the towns along the shore. Yearning for something more, he set out for the ocean, eventually winding up aboard a ship that was attacked by Redbeard's fleet. He washed ashore in the town of Queral, where he now works as a cook at Freedom until he can join a new crew.
