Captain Damon is the captain of the skyship Deera. As an NPC, he is played by Matthew Mercer.



Captain Damon is described simply as "more adorned" than his crew, wearing a "captain's uniform."[1]




"Skyward" (1x15)

Vox Machina first met Captain Damon on their journey to Vasselheim to escort the Horn of Orcus to the Platinum Sanctuary. He helmed the skyship they used to fly over the Ozmit Sea. During the voyage, the ship was attacked by a group of bandits riding wyverns and a griffon. Captain Damon was nearly thrown overboard but Vox Machina saved him just in time.[2]

"The Chase to Glintshore" (1x67)

The next time Vox Machina met Captain Damon was in Ank'Harel, when Scanlan and Grog were attempting to steal an airship. Instead, they earned themselves free passage on Captain Damon's, thanks to the badge given to them by J'mon Sa Ord. Damon seemed pleased to see them again, and agreed to help them reach the Isle of Glintshore to hunt down Anna Ripley. He revealed that since the Chroma Conclave attack, he and his men had gained significantly more autonomy and no longer had to pay taxes and fees.[3][4]

"Passed Through Fire" (1x69)

After the encounter with Ripley on the island, and Percy's untimely death, Vex'ahlia notified Damon that their group was using another method to leave the island, so the skyship and its crew could head back to Ank'Harel. As the ship turned to leave, Vex stopped Captain Damon and asked if he would like to join the fight against the Chroma Conclave. After some initial hesitation, he agreed, and Vex directed him and the skyship towards Whitestone where their other allies were gathering.[5]


Despite not meeting directly with Vox Machina, the skyship Deera - and it can be assumed Captain Damon - was visible in the sky lending air support in the siege of Emon alongside the Air Ashari.
