A red headed man with a kept beard. He has a scar from his upper lip that curves at his cheek bone and goes through his ear. He received this scar from his first run in with a Dalpoki. This gave him his initial hate for those particular natives. His ears are gaged, performed by a Raktami, and in the holes are metal tunnel plugs. His wardrobe has become less about protection and more about function and comfort. His shirt has a few patches and symbols sewn into it. On his chest he keeps his prized pistols on a bandoleer. One of his pistols has TMWSD
, the initials of the man who gifted it to him, carved into the bottom of the handle. Across his body he has many pistols tucked in various places. A belt around his waist holds two swords, one with IRA
, the initials of a long gone army, carved into the hilt, slots holding his ammunition, a machete, a cutlass, a dagger, a knife, a short metal shovel, a leather pouch holding his pair of dice, gems, and gold coins. Around his neck is a silver skull cross on a string of black pearls. Across his back is a well loved rifle from an old friend.
"He's a fearsome dog that feeds off trouble and turmoil... I've seen him clear the deck of a Spanish galleon like it were nothing. Fighting like a devil, dressed as a man." - Edward Thatch
Appointed General (Captain) of the Imperial Raktam Amy by Blue Hummingbird herself.
Founder of the Crew of the Red Flag.
Mottos Edward Lives By:
The more they try to control you, the less they deserve your pity.
Caution's nothing without charisma! For if a man plays the fool, then it's only fools he'll persuade. But appear to be the devil, and all men will submit.
In a world without gold, we might have been heroes!
If you want a happy ending it all depends on where you stop telling your story.
"If I am anything, it is violence." - Alejandra Pizarnik, from "[...] of the Silence"
Kills since last paid: 4 - Will continue until Gibraltar pays 500GC
History of Edward:
Edward was born to a pair of farmers. As a kid he hated shoveling the muck and it often caused him to go looking for trouble. He'd pick fights and get drunk before he was even 16 years old. Once he turned 16 he left home and joined a ship crew and never went back home. He learned more on his first ship than he ever did on the farm. He learned how to fight, climb, rig, shoot, navigate, and swim while on the ship. Then one day the ship was attacked by pirates.
The pirates were giving no quarter and so the crew was forced to fight like dogs once fleeing wasn't an option. Edward fought the hardest and killed many pirates until he was completely surrounded when his crew mates was killed. Instead of killing him, the pirates offered him a place on their ship. He accepted to avoid death and spent many years developing his pirating skills further.
He eventually earned his own ship and commanded a fierce crew. He sailed the seven seas and made a lot of coin from his plunder. Though paradise never lasts and he was soon left for dead on the shores of an uncharted island. He soon realized he was not alone on the island and that death wasn't a permanent fixture. He became an established mercenary with plenty of connections among the Pirate community. He formed the Crew to unite like minded, merciless, killer pirates.
One day the Imperial Raktam Army wanted to conquer York and he saw a golden opportunity. It was an easy conquest and soon Edward renamed the town to New Nassau. Though when the Queen of Raktam took her army away to attend her wedding. Once that happened, the worst of the Yorkers returned and so Edward went on a hallucinogenic journey from which he doesn't remember. Having returned he bolstered the Crew's ranks to make it the second strongest clan on Shartak.
