Vander is a member of the Restless League, and can be found in their hideout. He is the right-hand man of Basil and was responsible for the attack on Brennan's ship just before Cyrus arrived on Stros M'Kai. During the attack, he stands with three other League pirates on his ship off in the distance.

You will have to fight him during your conversation with Basil, at the end of the topic "Part of You". He cannot be talked to until you defeat him in combat.
