Julio used it to save the Order of the Stick at Elan's request from Tarquin. Feeling uncomfortable with having his apprentice around—since it was the perfect set-up for him to be killed by a villain leading to Elan avenging him—Julio chose to retire and left the ship to his first-mate, Bandana, telling her that her only orders were to take Elan wherever he asked.
The Mechane seems to have the oddity of increased speed when something is at stake, according to Julio Scoundrél.
- Julio Scoundrél, The Dashing Swordsman and the captain of the Mechane, he aided Elan and Thog to reach Azure City. He has since departed for a vacation to the Outer Planes, giving his Chaos Sabre to Elan and made Bandana temporary captain.
- Fidel Secundus, Bandana's father and former helmsman. (No longer with the crew.)
- Lakaita Secundus, Bandana's mother. (No longer with the crew.)
- Beatrix "Bandana" Secundus, Fidel's daughter and acting captain. Former helmsman.
- Felix, the ship's electrical engineer and senior helmsman, and Julio's personal sartorial advisor.
- Andromeda, alias "Andi", the ship's head engineer. Does not have a good relationship with Bandana.
- Carol, uncertain role aboard the ship. She never engages in the operation of the ship, only relaying orders or delivering a warning to the captain.
- Mateo, the ship's junior helmsman.
- Kwesi, the ship's aeronautical engineer, often seen operating the engine controls.
- Ozzie, a bald crewman with a brown mustache and goatee, wearing an apron and fighting with a cutlass (seen in #1062, 1066, 1072, 1074, 1075, 1076).
