Characters who would make great Ship’s captains

It’s Sunday again and time for SixforSunday which is the brainchild of Steph a little but a lot (@eenalol). You can find out all about it here on her blog . Every week there is a new prompt and this week the idea is to think of fictional characters who would make great ship’s captains. Help!!!! I have actually laid awake this week trying to think of characters who would fit that criteria.

In the end I decided to look back at the books I have read so far this year and think of characters who were good at leading others. These are the books and characters I came up with.

My two main reading genres are fantasy and detective fiction. I decided that police inspectors would probably make very good ship’s captains so this list is split between characters in detective fiction and fantasy.

Nelson in Elly Griffiths Ruth Galloway series would make a great captain.
As would Vera Stanhope although she might spend a lot of time in her cabin with a whisky bottle
Lady Hardcastle would be great at ordering people about and has travelled loads already.
Back to fantasy and Jael Furyck would make an amazing Ship’s captain.
Mal would be a terrific ship’s captain as he would never get lost and always get his ship home again.
My daughter recommended this to me and Eileen would definitely be a good ship’s captain even at the age of 79.

So that’s my 6 choices for this week. I thought it was a difficult challenge and am really looking forward to seeing what characters other people come up with.

Let me know if you agree with any of mine.
