Kaskus has a deep and noisy love of mountains and caverns of his homeland, and longs to return there some day after he’s repaid a debt of loyalty to Lavinia, whose father rescued Kaskus from slavery to the Scarlet Brotherhood over a year ago.

Kaskus Kiel’s loyalty to Lavinia is only matched by his loyalty to the Jade Ravens and the natural world. He has unfortunately spent much of the voyage on the Blue Nixie seasick.

He’s fallen in love with the Isle of Dread and its exotic environs. One of the first things he did upon arriving was to forge a bond with an animal companion from a nearby lagoon – a cantankerous giant crocodile Kaskus has named Kruthkur. After several unfortunate misunderstandings, Kaskus no longer allows Kruthkur inside of Farshore; the crocodile has instead taken to living in the river just west of the colony.

Kaskus has been trying to convince the Jade Ravens to make an expedition into the Isle of Dread’s interior, but so far, he’s only been able to convince Liamae to join him. His obsession with the natural world has all but blinded him to the fact that the Jade Ravens are close to dissolving as a group.
