Bosun, also known as Bo the Breaker, is a half-orc member of The Fletching and Moondrop Traveling Carnival of Curiosities. As an NPC, Bo is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Bosun is a tall, masculine half-orc male with a well-groomed handlebar mustache that curves out to the sides. For his performance in Trostenwald, Bosun wore a billowing white silk shirt and black trousers.[2]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Orna described Bosun as "a stand up guy, if a bit of a self-absorbed dick at times".[3]

Biography[edit | edit source]

During the performance in Trostenwald, Bosun was seen playing drums[4] and pulling Kylre into the performance tent.[5] He also told the party that they would find out why people called him "The Breaker" during the show.[6]

After the commotion in the circus' main tent, Bosun was arrested as a suspect[7] and brought before Lawmaster Norda alongside the rest of the carnival and the Mighty Nein.[8] He protested when Gustav Fletching attempted to take sole responsibility for the attack, but was shut down.[9] He and Gustav were then moved into cells within the Stockade.[10]

After the circus was disbanded, Bosun, Orna and Toya decided to leave together and create their own show.[11] Gustav bequeathed to them whatever equipment they needed to do so.[12]
