|Occupation||Commodore of the Bloodsail Buccaneers|
Lester Zank is a young high-ranking member of the Bloodsail Buccaneers, one of the four commodores.
In Kul Tiras, young Lester served as a minor mage in Duke Falrevere's estate. The noble indulged the lad's interest in the dark arts out of respect for his father, who died in Falrevere's service when Lester was a baby. Others were not so kind, and shunned the pale, bald, fatherless boy. When the Scourge invaded Lordaeron, Lester traveled to the mainland, thinking to join the defense against the undead. The sight of the creatures horriﬁed him, however, and he lost his nerve. He found a secret basement and hid, surviving on preserved fruit while the Third War raged above. Finally, he emerged and slunk past the undead forces, hoping to ﬁnd the only man who had ever shown him kindness. Three years ago, he reunited with Falrevere and became a Bloodsail Buccaneer.
Lester is ﬁercely loyal to Duke Falrevere, and he and Jessi Falrevere are the only people the duke allows into his conﬁdence. Lester's sailing skills leave much to be desired, but the past 3 years and his emulation of the duke and Jessi have taught him much. His sailors are afraid of him, and he is ruthless when it comes to destroying his enemies; he often takes dangerous measures to accomplish his goals, such as pursuing an enemy vessel into a probable trap or taking a shortcut over a coral reef. Lester's arcane powers — particularly those that involve ﬁre — are valuable in naval engagements, and the young warlock has ﬁnally found people who respect his abilities.
