Role Description

Captain Richard Mason: (Lead) a grizzled ex-navy man who spent his time after service working the loading docks and then taking tourists out on fishing cruises in his later years. He had a family once but has since lived alone on his boat, which is a mess just like him. He gives the impression of a man who once lived according to strict discipline but has since lost that will for organization. He is an alcoholic and there is something a bit off about him, some deep melancholy lurking beneath his hardened and quiet surface.
