Arndak is a Skandian trader in a small fleet made up of his ships the Spraydancer, the Rainbow, the Golden Sun and the Sealion.

He and his ships are ambushed by Zavac and his pirate crew aboard the Raven in the Outcasts. Arndak and his crew of warriors put up a good fight but are overwhelmed then forced to drop their weapons as Arndak's nephew, Ernak is held hostage.

Arndak tells Zavac of the Andomal, a precious Skandian artifact. He and his nephew are then locked in the hold of the Spraydancer and the ship is sunk, drowning Arndak and his nephew.
