The oldest of the Spewake and future lord of the Blue Shell, Menchel is almost always seen at his father's side. Even at the young age of eleven Menchel is already an avid sailer, having earned his own ship to captain in his father's fleet, a gift he received on his last birthday. Brand makes sure that his son sails on every trip with him, watches his father council with every subject, and meets every lord and heir in Ruinous. His father, who felt ill prepared when he came in his inheritance, wants his son to be ready for the day he take his seat. Every lord should know his face and every subject should trust his word.
