Meet our lesbian pirates! 🖤
And other characters from Pirates of Aletharia. 🖤
The main characters of Pirates of Aletharia are Emilia Drakon and her murderous pirate captain/love interest, Captain Maria Welles. 🏴☠️🌈
Emilia Drakon is a dragon sorceress with a reputation for being highly empathic, exceptionally kind, and a little too meek. But when her kindness is taken advantage of and used to hurt people, she decides it’s time for a villainous descent. ⚔️
As the most feared pirate captain in all of Aletharia, Captain Maria Welles is practically an expert in villainous descents. She sees potential in Emilia and is clearly drawn to her, but she also tricks her and uses her.
Em struggles with PTSD, survivor’s guilt, and anxiety, but she finds understanding in Maria, who’s struggled with similar issues. 🖤
Em is also autistic and communicates differently than most, which has made it hard for her to befriend people in the past, but she finds a found family who understands her aboard Maria’s pirate ship. 🖤
And on a less serious note, here is Britney Jackson’s Totally Professional and Not At All Dorky™️ character list. 😅
🏳️🌈 Emilia Drakon, Surgeon/Witch – Nicest lesbian you’ve ever met, except she’s finally given herself permission to be petty. (But with murder.)
🏴☠️ Maria Welles, Pirate Captain – Meanest lesbian you’ve ever met, except she’s a tiny bit sweet and gooey on the inside. (Also, with murder. So much murder.)
🍻 Judith Brewster, Cook/Spy – Drunkest lesbian you’ve ever met. (With less murder.)
💥 Helen Maynard, Master Gunner – Most muscular and gunpowdery bisexual you’ve ever met. (With accidental murder.)
⚓️ Zain Amari, Quartermaster – Probably the only rational guy on the whole ship, got blackmailed for dating the wrong dude once.
⛵️ Pelt, Boatswain – Token Straight Dude.
🪝 Fulke, Master at Arms – Giant dude. Doesn’t like splinters.
🗡 Adda, Fencer – Maria’s Crime Mom. Sort of.
⚔️ Catherine Rochester, Admiral of the Royal Navy – We don’t like her.
👑 King Eldric, King of Illopia – We don’t like him either.
🌊 Aletha, Goddess of the Sea – Adopts sad witch babies. Occasionally creates accidental hurricanes with her girlfriend.
🌪 Aria, Goddess of the Wind – The girlfriend.
🐈 Ship Cats – The true heroes, according to themselves.
🐉 Dragons – Beastly demigods who love Emilia so much that they once tried to feed her live animals that were three times her size. (Aww!)
⚓️ Wicked Fate – This is a ship, not a person, but don’t tell Maria that.
