Addi Balmyar (aka Adris Balmyar) is a character played by Havana Mahoney on Pirates of Salt Bay. She made her first appearance in Ghosts of Salt Marsh Ep. 1 of 3.
Addi is most often garbed in pirate finery, as befits her position as captain, and dresses to intimidate and impress. In a lot of situations when dealing with people she doesn't know, she goes by Adris, dresses as a man and uses he/him pronouns.
When presenting as Addi, curly red hair flows from under her tricorn hat framing her flashing green eyes. In any situation Addi carries herself with authority.
She has recently had a child, and so can sometimes be seen with wild eyes glaring out from underneath a bush of red hair as she is going to or coming from a feeding/diaper change.
Addi's personality has softened since the birth of her daughter, in the way that sandstone is softer than granite. Stubborn, loud-mouthed, and opinionated are the politer words used to describe her by the (mostly male) pirates who cross her path. More accurately, Addi is driven, fiercely loyal to her crew, and won't back down when she believes she's in the right (or if there's profit in being in the wrong). Those close to her see a surprising maternal side, though they would do well not to comment on it, a lesson Eoj has yet to learn. Since Addi has become more open about her love of Eoj of late, perhaps Eoj had the right of it all along.
Background is broken into the seasons we learned this information about the character, to minimise spoilers.
Season 0 (Ghosts of Saltmarsh)
Addi was raised as a boy for a lot of her life and uses that to her advantage in a lot of situations, presenting as a man when dealing with people she doesn't know.
Addi is a very accomplished pirate with a long career of piracy, and very good with her blunderbusses. She has had two children whom she abandoned at birth.
When she met Eoj, he picked a fight with her, trying to impress someone he saw as a wealthy man. She won the fight.
Addi has been married twice before.
