"Yarr!" - Steve the Pirate


I'm Carl. Ma was a whore, Da was cook on a fancy navy ship - all clean and shiny. When I was old enough to hold a bucket and mop, he said I was to be cabin boy for that fancy ship with that Capn' wore a wig and smelled like flowers. I hated him - the Capn', not my Da.
Not even grown my whiskers yet when the ship fell to pirates. Most of the men died in the fight, some were tossed overboard after - Da was one of them because he said no way he gonna cook for pirates. Good for me, I helped Da cook, so I said yes! I'll cook for pirates!
So I was cook for crew of the Crimson Kraken. But not very good. Replaced me with a good cook when we captured one. But Capn' liked me - said I was loyal, tough and dim. Put me to work on the deck instead, and later put a sword in my hand. I was a real pirate. It was great. I loved it. It was a good, honest mans life.

Then our ship sank in a bad storm.
I woke up on the shore all alone.

Met some highwaymen, they said they were pirates too - pirates of the land. So I joined their crew. We robbed rich people who didn't share - with us. Which was all of 'em. We were due our share too, so we took it. I love the sea, but I came to love the wood as well. The woods is kinda like the sea. Just not as wet. And...with trees. Bears instead of sharks. Anyway! It was a good, honest mans life.
Then a new sheriff and his men came and killed all my new brothers. I ran, but it was stormy and raining, slipped and fell off a cliff.

I woke up in a ditch all alone.
