John Avery was the captain of the Bantamina.


A marked man in Kesh, John betrayed the Durbin captains to a Quegan raiding fleet eleven years before the Riftwar began. Render is one of his crew at that time.

His story was used as a ruse by Jocko Radburn, to get to Arutha and Amos Trask during Guy du Bas-Tyra's Viceroyalty in Krondor.
