Alternate apperance.

Vacation's over, Mai. I have work for you in the Mists.


Captain Mai Trin is the (ostensible) leader of the Aetherblades. She was first seen offering her help as a healer during the attack on Dragon Bash, but was later discovered to have planned the attack, hoping to use the death of Captain Theo Ashford to win a seat on the Ship's Council of Lion's Arch. Trin was acting at the behest of Scarlet Briar, who wanted an ally on the Captain's Council for reasons still unknown. Kasmeer Meade speculates that it was so she could weaken the city's defenses from within.

Trin was apprehended by Inspector Ellen Kiel in the Aetherblade Retreat and her first mate, Horrik, was killed. She spent time incarcerated in Fort Marriner, but was recently freed by her Aetherblades and taken to the Edge of the Mists, pursued by Braham and Taimi.

  • "Mai Trin" is a homophone of "matron", referring to her initial claim of being a healer. "Mai" is also a feminine Japanese name (pronounced "My") which points toward a Canthan origin for the captain.
