|Billets:||Captain to Laetificat|
Portland is a "senior cap" or senior captain of the Aerial Corps. He is apparently well-regarded in the Corps as he was trusted with a very precious Regal Copper egg and was the captain sent to William Laurence when it was discovered he had harnessed a Chinese dragon. Laurence seems to like him, as Portland is far more tactful than the younger aviators like Dayes and Croft who are also present.
Laurence describes Portland as "a tall, thin man with sever features and a hawkbill nose, who looked rather dragon-like himself" (HMD 70).
