Name: Anne Bonny
Nickname: Annie, Red
Age: 23
Sexuality: Pansexual
Blood Status: Fairyblooded, Leanan Sidhe
Ethnicity: Irish
Occupation/Rank: Pirate Lord

Height: 5'5"
Weight: 122 lbs
Hair Color: Crimson Red
Eye Color: Blue
Distinguishing Features: Compass with skull and crossbones inside over left breast, along with sword scars around her body
Face Claim: Scarlett Johansson

Personality: Anne is flirtatious to everyone, but will quickly let someone know whether or not she doesn't like them. A fiery attitude like her hair, she is deathly loyal to those she trusts and respects. A strong and able seafarer, Anne is as at-home on the deck of a ship as she is inside a tavern or on the beach.

History: While Anne isn't quite sure where she was born, she knows that it was somewhere in Ireland. Raised in a Catholic orphanage, Anne was quick to run away at the tender age of nine. Because of her smaller stature she was able to stow away on a ship headed for the New World.

While aboard, she was found out, and ended up working as a deckhand and assistant to the captain. It turned out to be a great learning opportunity for her. Unfortunately, it was while sailing to the West Indies that the ship was put upon by pirates before being able to make it to Jamaica to pick up a shipment of sugar cane. While most of the crew was killed, Anne was one of the few whom was spared. Fair features and the ability to work on a ship was something that could not be passed up. And so Anne learned the life of a pirate crew. She learned quickly that being fair and shy would not do, and so she quickly became a rather outgoing girl, learning from those on the crew to have a quick lip and a strong constitution.


As she grew, Anne became quite the beauty. Becoming aware not only of how she looked but also how men responded to her looks, she was quick to figure out ways to use her wiles to get what she wanted. However, looks weren't enough to get her knowledge. It was with this in mind that Anne studied charts and spent as much time as possible on the quarterdeck of her ship, the Williams Pride, to learn how to maneuver the ship. Nimble as she was, Anne was also able to work from the tops of the mizzent down to the inside of the keel, learning every part of the ship from the bow to the stern.

When finally elected Captain, Anne knew that she had to work hard in order to keep her position. After all, who wanted a captain who was meek and wouldn't make them any money? For over a year she worked, caring not for the origins of any ships that her crew attacked and boarded. She soon had a reputation, and those who saw her flag knew that death was likely not far away.

While having a reputation as being ruthless helped with civilians, there was an added bonus for those that knew her. During her time on Nassau, Anne works to perfect her recipe for Rum. It is used in stores of grog as well as in bottles for those who wish to purchase. Of course, it's not for civilian use, and the actual location of Anne's still is known by only a handful of people.

All in all, Anne knows that she has pushed herself into what is seen as mostly a mans world. She can drink, fight, and curse with the best of them, and her prowess on the sea is well-known...especially in this part of the world. Anne looks after herself first and foremost, but through that desire she is able to keep her crew well-off. After all, sailors look for someone who can not only put gold in their pockets, but can get them back to shore to spend it.

Weapons: Three flintlock pistols and two cutlasses. The pistols will often cross over her chest, while the blades always rest upon her hips. She also carries a small dagger, sheathed at the small of her back.

Skills/Abilities: Quick-draw, self-taught on the sword, able to read charts, brew Rum, ability to read a coastline for dangers to a ship, reading weather patterns.

O&Os: Ons = Dub-con, Seduction, D/s, Flirtation, Exh/Voy (Anything else not in offs can be discussed). Offs = Violent R, Vore, Gore, Bathroom Play, Body Mod.


Ok, everything looks good.  Approved.  You can add it into the character sheet thread.

I have an idea for a second character.

Who wants a chinese female warrior who has healing powers on their ship?

Submit and get the character approved first. Hehe.

I was hoping to have her established on a ship when I write up the character sheet.

That makes sense, but it's hard for us Captains to make a call if we can't see what use she'd be. Haha.

AnnieSatin

I get that :)  she is a fae with skilled swordsmanship and healing abilities. No worried if treach isn't interested I'm just putting out feelers.

If it helps, we have a few captains who don't have a quartermaster as PC. I'm sure the players, who plays Captains, would be more than happy to work something out with you and ensure your character is part of their crew. Master of Sails.. Cabin boys. Cooks.. Navigator.. Gunner. Just to name a couple of positions.

There are two brothel madames (One is a NPC) who always need employees under them..

There's also a mercenary guild running under a character of mine.. There's also a merchant, a character of Kakihara, running his own trading company.

>3> The possibilities are endless!

I am going to use this to blatantly advertise for a need of crewmembers for Anne Bonny's ship! Quartermaster, Navigator, woodworkers, and able seamen are all welcome!

We look forward to seeing what you'll come up with! If you need any help, ask either Kakihara or myself. We can toss some ideas over.

I’m thinking about a quartermaster, but I will admit that my knowledge of the setting is somewhat limited.

When it comes to the setting, it was mostly inspired by a show - but honestly, all the information you really need is from reading here. I'm not too familiar with the setting myself, but doing some research definitely helps.

There are two Captains who definitely need a quartermaster. I know @WhatLiesAbove is open to it - her character, Anne Bonny, still needs a quartermaster and more crewmembers.

I would rather appreciate that.

Awesome. I'll DM you a basic understanding of what a Quartermasters job is, and you can let me know what your thinking in regards to a character!

Name: Daniel Barrett
Nickname: Danny(privately), Mister Barrett(publicly)
Age: 38
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Blood Status: Human
Ethnicity: Caucasian(British)
Occupation/Rank: Quartermaster under Anne Bonny

Height: 6’0”
Weight: 210 lbs
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Blue
Distinguishing Features: Sword scars on his hands, chest, and legs
Face Claim: Toby Stephens

Personality: Straight-laced to a point, disciplined, and conditioned, he is ruthless when necessary and obedient on his own whim.

History: Born in Liverpool to a British Naval officer for a father and a mother who dreaded her husband being lost to the sea, the water was a second home for Daniel Barrett. Upon the completion of his studies, he enlisted in the Royal Navy, spending his first few years without so much as the thought of leaving British waters.

However, that would change when he began studying under the quartermaster of one of His Majesty’s ships based out of what would become Nassau during Britain’s declining rule of the island, spending several years learning how to navigate, how to maintain a ship’s weapons, every duty required.

During what was supposed to be a journey back to England for the bereavement of his mother, the ship he was on was beset upon by the same pirate ship that had captured the future Anne Bonny. His training in the Navy had been what saved him from meeting a grisly fate. As he assimilated into the crew, he grew close to Bonny, becoming one of her staunchest supporters, casting one of the first votes for her to assume the rank of Captain. In the meantime, he grew to enjoy the freedom pirate life brought, even if it didn’t break the habits instilled by the Navy.

Weapons: A flintlock pistol and a cutlass

Skills/Abilities: Caring for a ship, maintaining morale, maintaining weapons, following the command of his captain
