Kismet Spinsail is the young and somewhat reluctant halfling Captain of the Crux and member of the Spinsail Seven.

The West Wind had always murmured to Kismet throughout his life. Not so much a voice as it was a hand on his shoulder, guiding him to new experiences and knowledge on his family's trade ship Marigold as well as his life as a Wandering Sailor. At 15, with a great deal more insistence the West Wind pushed him in a confusing and radically different direction. Kismet gave up his life as a crewman on the trade ship Fidato and returned to the Marigold. Explaining his new destiny to his family was impossible but, it was necessary to try. He left his profits with his brother Calypso and bid his mother and siblings goodbye.

With reverence to the Old Faith, he began his training in the druidic arts in the mangrove forest on a remote island. In deep meditation and on vision quests, the knowledge was revealed to him. Five years after he began, he found himself with other acolyte druids at the Haunted Thicket his initial training was complete. After days of meditation, the West Wind began the more familiar push back to his life at sea.

Kismet returned to the Fidato, where Captain Ort allowed him to complete the final of his three traditional tasks to become a Capetian. At the ceremony in Portlander, on the deck of the Resound under Captain Snickersnit Kismet was granted the title Captain. It was there that he met other initiates Kipp, Dorian and even Edlana. To his great surprise, he was reunited with his Aunt Bloop who would eventually join the same group of adventurers as he on the island of Mandelle at the The Singing Sunbird.
