Mates serve on ships as the second in command, answering directly to the Captain of the vessel. They are responsible for ensuring that the Captain’s orders are carried out, which can be a trying task with even the most professional of crews. Mates have to be stern but fair, earning the respect of their crew or they will swiftly find themselves the butt of many practical jokes and far worse if a mutiny should occur. Mates are always experienced sailors, often with several voyages under their belt and there are few ports they haven’t drank, fought, or caroused in.[1a]
