The other character is a Cymrilian Magician who is finacing the voyage and expedition to the Southern Rim. Chan-Ra is a friend of the Gao Sea Rogue captain, and the first mate of his ship.

Character Description[edit]

Physical Description: Chan-Ra stands 6'2" tall and weighs 200 pounds. His skin is covered with fine silvery scales, and he has deep blue eyes.

Background: Chan-Ra's ship was damaged in a fierce storm near the Pana-Ku islands. The Sun-Ra-Sun sailors found a spot to dock and repair, but were discovered by the Na-Ku and attacked. Chan-Ra was knocked unconscious during the attack and taken captive by the Na-Ku cannibals. Chan-Ra thought that he would end up in a Na-Ku stew pot, but fate had other plans for him. The Na-Ku camp was attacked by Mangar Corsairs, and Chan-Ra became a reluctant sailor upon a Mangar carrack. Chan-Ra stayed long enough to earn the respect of the Mangar crew and captain, and his freedom.
