Admiral Eldridge Vocaine was Cinnabar citizen and an officer of the Republic of Cinnabar Navy.

Family Edit

Vocaine was a first cousin of the wife of Admiral James of Kithran. His family nickname was Bucko; and his mother's name was probably Madge.6:28

Naval Career Edit

When long-time Chief of the Navy Board Josh Anston retired in 5149 CE after a heart attack shortly before Commander Leary returned to Cinnabar in a captured prize, he was succeeded by Admiral Vocaine. Vocaine was not fond of Leary, whom he considered a protege of his predecessor.5:1

Partly because of that, Leary was sent on several remote and difficult, vaguely defined missions, including one to Dunbar's World5:1 and an advisory mission to Ganpat's Reach.6:1

One of Vocaine's decisions upon becoming Chief of the Navy Board in 5149 CE was to stop all leave for naval ratings and keep them in virtual prisons while on Cinnabar. This was to avoid losing them to merchant marine during the huge shortage of trained spacers occuring in the Fourth Alliance War. By 5151 CE he had to reverse this decision due to the protests of many successful and senior RCN commanders.7:1

By 5152 CE, Vocaine had been replaced by Admiral Hartsfeld during a change of leadership in the Cinnabar Senate.8:25
