Claudette Abobi, Prostitute
Claudette Abobi is Merrin's best friend and her sister in arms at The House of Sparrows, the brothel where Claudette works and Merrin lives on Isla Perla. She is island-born and beautiful, and equal parts cunning and loyal.
When Merrin readies to join the Riptide, Claudette helps her assemble the necessary pieces of her disguise, although she makes it known that she doesn't want Merrin to go, and fears for her fate at sea. The relationship between Merrin and Claudette is left unexplored, but it is hinted that there is more than friendship between the two women.
When Merrin prepares to set sail, she sees Brandon Dunn speaking to someone hidden beneath an awning on the quay, and it is Claudette that steps out of the shadows. Claudette's association with the Riptide's quartermaster is unknown, and Claudette's story remains unknown...for now.
