Erik Winters, Captain
Erik Winters is the rumored madman that helms the pirate ship Riptide. Tenacious and sometimes ruthless, Winters is known as much for his disposition as he is for his penchant for rum and connection to Evangeline Dahl, the proprietress of The Goodnight Mermaid.
Upon Evangeline's disappearance, Winters leads the Riptide's crew through a series of bloody battles as he tries to recover his love. But, after two years of failures that have only added to his brooding and ill-tempered personality, Winters believes that the sea itself has stolen Evangeline. We meet Winters as he prepares to sail to the mythical island of Bracile to steal her back.
Though formidable, there is warmth in Winters' heart--if you dare get close enough to find it. Merrin finds an unlikely alliance with this sullen pirate, as they both seek a missing piece of their heart on the journey to Bracile.
