Maria Quinn (Also known as Daft Maria, but no one calls her that to her face... and lives)
Maria was the daughter of a famous pirate, and was said to have been born at sea. She became the captain of the ship when her father died, and lasted less than a moth before she was mutinied on a small island. She then made the island her home, and has been using bits of shipwrecks that was up on shore (there are quite a lot of them, as the island is in a dangerous part of the sea) to make a small ship. Her goal is to get to Tortuga, where she can become part of a pirate crew.
She is known for being "off". She does everything on a whim, and 90% of the time her irrational plans actually work. She has a sharp wit and is excellent with a cutlass. She also is very fond of animals.
"Yes, Patrick! I am very aware of our situation!" Maria yelled to the bright yellow parrot in a nearby tree. The parrot squawked at her. "No, Patrick. You can come with me if you want but I am going." to this the parrot squawked again, looking a little dejected. She continued to drag a piece of wood to where the nearly-complete skeleton of a ship lay. This recent ship wreck brought in plenty of materials to finish building it.
A small lizard scuttled up her leg and croaked at her excitedly.
"Really?" Maria said, surprised. She climbed up the side of her almost finished boat and looked to the other side of the island. There was a small rowboat, and it looked like there were people, but she couldn't be sure. She began her trek to the other side of the island, taking along her cutlass and a few medical supplies, just in case. When Maria got there she saw two figures, and she watched from behind a tree. She would be outnumbered if she tried to pick a fight, but if worst came to worst she could lure them into a more densely jungled area of the island, where she had set several traps.
