The current master of the Vae Victus is Squadron-Admiral Mendall and he has been aboard the ship for nearly 30 years, the past 20 of which he has been in command. In his 82 years as an officer in the Guardian Order, Mendall has fought in engagements across nearly every known sector of space.
Mandall is a huge man by any standards and is known to stand, unmoving, on the bridge of the Vae Victus for several days during difficult patrols. His officers respect and fear him but he is first to acknowledge that a successful boat is the work of the Crew, not the captain.
Mendall is always in strict Naval uniform and carries a Energized Combat Blade at his side. During an attack on the Vae Victus the bridge was severely damaged and Mendall lost his right eye which has since been replaced a green cybernetic occulus. Both of his hands have been destroyed in combat several times and he maintains a dangerous looking collection of cybernetic replacements issued to him by the Naval Doctors.
