The father of Victoria Cornell, and a former Privateer. He is a Visitor from Earth, and sailed as a Privateer for the Keirans, before a particularly large haul from a Spanish pay ship led the crew he was part of to turn Pirate. Their ship was later wrecked, with Jeremiah being the only survivor, and thus the only one to know the exact location of the treasure. A loose tongue while intoxicated let others know of the treasure, and of a daughter that might be used to extort its location from him.
He was captured by Lord Algernon Pettigrew who hoped to extort the location of the treasure from him by threatening his daughter, but was rescued by the crew of the Belinda with whom he shared his treasure, taking enough to retire on and currently resides in the town of Lanos.
