Kroot Mercenary Leader
It’s pronounced “Squawk-click whistle-coo-click” in his native tongue. Difficult for humans to reproduce. A simple (and inaccurate) translation is “Arkt’phook”

Current Mindset and Goals
Ark’Tphook (Ar*’chirp’* T*’whistle’*) is the Kroot Mercenary who was abandoned on Port Wander by a vengeful previous employer. He and his ‘men’ have made a contract with the command crew of the Forsaken Queen; In exchange for passage, food, and equipment, the Kroot shall serve as a military force.
Nobody has yet counted the full complement of Kroot currently on board. Over the week they were docked at Port Wander, many Kroot came in small groups of four to ten. Particularly when the Port Wander navy armsmen were distracted or busy. They have taken roost in one of the large cargoholds, and it is now avoided by the Voidsman of the ship.
Recently, Ark’Tphook participated in his end of the Contract, and assisted in the Purge of the Forsaken Queen’s Pleasure Cult. His massive quantity of Kroot (estimated around 4 thousand beaks) were crucial in the massacre.
