Captain Greyylene found herself in the custody of Horatio Washburn, on her own flamboyant terms. She pays her “debt to society” in the hole of a dungeon surrounded by other pirates, some of whom were infected with the Cradle Rock Illness. It was a good thing she turned herself in or the empire would have suffered horrible gruesome losses to the Illness.
