I don't think I've seen much discussion about The First Mate here, so I thought I'd start the topic. He's Gremlin-faction only, but has the Swampfiend typing, which allows Neverborn Zoraida to bring him in with her upgrade. Outside of the interesting synergies with NB Zoraida, he has a pretty solid defensive statline for a Henchman, and he brings the "typical" Sluirid abilities of Perfect Camouflage and Leap, which are always great. Moving on to specific synergies, he has Pounce, which plays well with Zoraida having the option to Obey and use the Voodoo doll to shove something around. We've seen the combo before with Lelu and Lelitu, but this gives us another piece to use it with, even outside of bringing the twins package. He also has some interesting abilities that interact with the Slow condition. He can hand it out on a non-built-in trigger, Paralyze a Slow model with another non-built-in trigger, or simply devour whole a Paralyzed model with a high Tome. This set of abilities gets especially interesting with the models that come in Titania's box, as the henchman and minions have an aura which force tests against gaining Slow. They're also compelling choices in any crew since they're great for dropping and playing around with scheme markers. Any of you play with First Mate in Zoraida yet? How was he?
