With his blue tattoos and sailor’s bandana, VanWyn looks like he was plucked from the deck of a boat. He’s a sea hardened sailor who’s worked the coastal trade routes since boyhood. On shore leave at a Nomad fair, he took a glidewing ride on a lark and hasn’t looked back since. From his time at sea, he’s an expert at using the wind to his advantage, and confuses other pilots when he employs sailing jargon to talk about flying. VanWyn secretly pines over a long lost love that once took a ship out into open waters and never returned. Though during his years at sea he made many attempts to her find her, he feels guilty for abandoning his search and taking up glidewing racing.
