    Hmmm...
    I do believe he is someone who does many things for the community
    behind the scenes so to speak.
    Kinda like a few others I could name but who might choke me if I did!

    I think elves spell his name Thomas though, and try to slip their language in when ever they get a chance.
    Ishtar must have her back turned for a moment!
    They can be crafty little dickens!

    *Grace staggers forward and leans on the desk, the smell of Rum on her breath.*

    "So does this mean we gotta sign up again?"

    *Grace takes a quill pen and scratches rough lettering on an entry form.*

    Lady Sterling, Nissa, and "Lady" Grace O'Malley, Captain.

    Now... how bout you let me take a look at the prize gold? You can trust me lass... er, I means Lady Ishtar. Um, just wants to make sure it's all there before I win the race... ya see. *winks*

    Oh, and SeaDog will be comin along too but since he's a ghost dog he dont count as crew. *grins*

    Another perfectly good reason to dislike Elven kind.

    *The elves shake their fists in anger at the one they call Thomas.*

    Their leader, speaking in excited peeps and squeaks voices their dislike of human kind! Nearby a rabbit grazes... oh wait.. those aren't elves, they are Teletubbies.... nevermind...
