Jandor alias the Airship Captain is the legendary hero of the Necromancer War who defeated the Necromancer army with the Staff of Oblivion. At the end of the war, he found Hecubah, a necromancer infant, and decided to give it to the ogres. He hoped she will never learn about her origin.
After that, he assumed the identity of an eccentric old airship captain, who plays mentor role to Jack throughout the game. His real identity is revealed the half-way through the game, when he instructs Jack to reassemble the Staff.
He was once of possession of Jandor's Magic Battle Armor, Jandor's Crossbow and Quiver and Jandor's Magic Cloak and Boots which he gave Aldwyn the Conjurer.
