Lifetime Mending Era

Rafwyn "Raff" Capashen is a distant relative of Captain Gerrard Capashen. He became the ship's mage of Jhoira's crew on the rebuilt Skyship Weatherlight.


Rafwyn is a young illusionist with unruly brown hair who has studied at the Tolarian Academy. He is the son of Aron Capashen, who is the head of the highest house of Benalia. Despite his noble heritage, he prefers to go by the name of "Raff".[1] Fully aware of the weight of his ancestor Gerrard's Legacy, Raff has chosen to prove himself worthy of the Capashen name by mastering the study of magic at the Tolarian Academy. Though he is still only 13 and a junior, second-level student at the academy at Tolaria West, he is also a skilled navigator and has caught Jhoira's attention. He loves flying on the Skyship Weatherlight more than devoting time to his studies, and he secretly dreams of honoring Gerrard's legacy by crewing the skyship with as much daring and panache as his ancestor did.[2] Raff offered to join the Weatherlight after his older sister Danitha refused.[3]
