“My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
Ara Jakata is a stout, hirsuite Mercenary man who is the captain of the Jade Serpent. A former gambler and soldier of fortune, Ara won the Jade Serpent from a Sarenulian trader in a game of cards. Since then, he has used the vessel to smuggle illegal goods, as well as help those in need of transport.
The Pathseekers employed the services of Ara Jakata and his crew to take them from Port Siraston to Samsandi.
Ara Jakata later reappeared as the captain who would transport the Pathseekers out of Bratana and on to the Sarenulian port city of Yuhari.
