Description

Image

Age:
20

Backstory:
A bastard to the noble family of Bylandt, Jesper grew up just as any bastard would grow up without his mother. Being the inferior middle brother compared to all the other legitimate heirs to the family, he was treated with disdain and neglect, but mostly neglect.

He was ignored and considered himself quite lucky by that fact. Most of the other bastards were either abandoned on the streets or sent off to war for a quick merciful death. Siblings ignored him, his own father considered him a mistake and his wife-oh his wife was never happy when she laid eyes upon him.

As an agent of his own fate, he had decided that just borderline living was not the life for him, sooner or later one of his older brothers would succeed and turn him into a beggar on the streets just like the many other living bastards. He with his trusty sack and fine sliced cheese set off to search for his own name.

His first stop on his quest at the tender age of sixteen was the black market. Without much thought and the naivety of a child he practically sold his soul into a gang of thieving thugs. They were nice to him in the beginning, commending him for his strange behavior and slightly fancier speech. However, feeling that the life of thievery was not the life for him, he left and boy was his owner mad. For the next three years of his life he spent running from his captors while learning the art of quick shot and fighting.

Sadly his only escape was through a merchant ship through sea that was caught by the navy for smuggling. On that ship he met his first and most likely only real friend at the time, Scratch the monkey that was being passed around through ships to be delivered as a gift to some noble family.
On his way to the innocent prison, the navy ship met a pirate ship. He ended up jumping ships and becoming a crew member, learning the ways of the ship and maneuvering with his new friends and mates. But that story would be best left alone as it is in the past and the present is what is relevant.


Motives:
Jesper seeks the glory, the fortune and the women- the many reasons why pirates are pirates to begin with.

Appearances:
He is an unruly kept young man. His chestnut brown hair is unkempt growing in all directions with lots of tangles and uneven strands, it is fuzzy reminding a person of a furry large dog. Jesper has a boyish face with the fullness of adolescence and a stress-free attitude and the redness in his cheeks from the constant blare of the sun. He has a medium build with enough muscle from the work he did robbing people of goods and treasure.

Role on the ship:
Gunner

Skills:
Sharp Shooting
Strength
Perfect Vision

Equipment:
Scratch, the monkey
One Banana
One flint locked pistol

Tale of the Sea:
Prince Scratch
Who ever said good things happen to good people? Although it was an experience in itself as well; the brunette lay folded over like a crawling worm. His gut hurt a lot from the last kick by the navy swine. He was never one for revenge but happy thoughts were at the back of his mind at the moment.

“Oookey ookie!” his light brown eyes swiveled over to the little rascal in the cage.

“Aye. I know the feeling don’t you worry. I don’t want to know what happens to us after this. I doubt they will serve us some nice cheese,” the male sighed with exaggerated melancholy as the door swung open once more. “I’m gonna to miss eating cheese. What about you monkey?” The animal jumped in it’s cage with softer “ookies” Jesper assumed the furry creature understood him.

A burly man walked in. Anyone could tell that he had relationship problems. He struggled on one stub foot and he was not the prettiest man that Jesper had seen with his floppy belly and an astonishing large greasy beard. One giant scary scar ran down the side of his face he also had many visible sun burns. The monkey in the cage barred it’s fangs like a rabid beast jumping up and down and screeching like a banshee.

“Grab the animal,” the ugly man ordered as a scrawny sailor walked in. Picking up the cage the monkey shrieked grabbing the sailor by his ear and with it’s other body parts, scratched him wildly without mercy. Jesper couldn’t help but wave at the boy through his bound hands the poor boy’s mother wouldn’t recognize him now.

So begins...

Yessiree! A perfect day for a bit of boat rising. With the wind slashing across the face and the tiny drops of salty sea water splashing across the leathery pants. The skies were dark-most likely going to cast upon them light-but not from the heavens more like the hell spawns trapped in heaven came raining down. Hah!

Jesper stood right dead center in the middle of the ship, with his hands on his hips and a silly grin upon his face. He would not allow this storm to get the best of him-not today at the least. His boots slid across the deck right through puddles and everything but he would not mind. With his posture still intact it was almost comedic.

From within his soggy blouse came a small squeak. A furry head popped out with a shiver. Jesper laughed as if it was funny how they were getting tossed around by the terrible weather. “Aye! Prince Scratch! We might just end up dying out at sea!” he pronounced through the storm. The animal was not pleased with this as it agitatedly started bouncing in his clothes.

Remember the time when we first met?” he reminisced; the monkey growled. “It was like love at first sight,” the monkey held his own ears, but this did not stop the young man as he continued to babble. It was about the fifth ‘Remember’ when the mammal had enough of his brother’s nonsense.

Remember-OWWW!” The male slipped with a monkey hanging off of his jugglar with its hands stretching it with its monstrous strength. “OKAY!” he choked through the grip.

I’ll go help! Just calm yourself Scratch,” the monkey gave him a good smack across the head as he stood back up, rubbing his sore back . The rain did a number on his hair, his natural frizzy style had turned for the worst in the cold wet drippings of the rain, flat, completely clean and shiny. He sighed a bit as he headed up towards the captain.

" Oh Captain my captain!" he sang through a bit of rumbling from the storm, "need a hand?"

Ryland nodded slowly and turned his gaze towards Jesper…

“Can you steer a ship m’ boy? Why don’t you go take the wheel for a bit? Lad up there must be getting a little nervous…”

His gaze turned once again to the horizon. He stared off in silence, until he heard Sincaid approach.

"This storm... How long do you reckon its gonna hold out? The ships fast, but she wasn't built to withstand much worse than this..."

This was true. 'The reaper' had been bought out of availability rather than quality. She was small and fast, great for getting as far from Darranport as possible after just a few days travel. But she was small, and not really built to withstand everything the open seas could throw at you. He doubted he'd be keeping her for long. Just until they happened upon an alternative...

Placing his arms behind the back of his head, the boy stretched with a yawn walking with a bounce with each step over towards the deckhand just as the walking map crossed lucky charms man walked up behind him.The guy at the wheel was clearly nervous forehead splashed with rain, his eyes glazy but desperately shone out to assume sharpness.Taking one side of the wheel he exaggerated his hip motions and bumped the guy away causing him to stumble at the sudden motion of getting kicked off the wheel.

"Thanks mate I'll take it from here." The sailor went as one could say 'sailing'off. Although Jesper had said that he would take it from here, with both hands on the steering wheel he thought to himself 'it can't be that hard to steer a ship'. He steadied the wheel to keep it from spinning in all sorts of monstrous directions.

It was not hard to see why the mate had been so nervous about sailing. The waves grew larger and larger and one would think it was a whale trying to swallow the ship, especially a ship of this size. The wind was no better forcing the hands to burn as it attempted to push the steering wheel into oblivion.

"Catch a hussy and call her a man! I'm a natural at this Scratch. I knew those long days chatting up the ship handlers came in handy. Aaah-I remember-" the monkey raised it's tiny fuzzy arm out proceeding to slap the boy forced Jesper to shut his mouth with a childish grin. "Ye're highness I'll pay more attention now," he chuckled looking straight. There were many times where the young lad thought that he was a goner and this was probably one of those times,he was so used to it by now that it was like feeding Scratch bananas. Sure his heart beat like a horse hooves clattering against the cobblestone but his mind was at ease swallowing what would be a memory once they got past the storm.

"I should steer the ship instead of manning the guns! Haha,"he laughed to himself just as a mighty wave landed on the ship. "Blimey!" The boy lost his grip for a second. No man overboard yet at least.

Whilst the winds were strong, and the waves were heavy, the true threat had yet to reveal itself. The storm had pushed the ship off course, and into more unforgiving waters. Beneath the surface of the volatile waters, shapes began to dance and twirl and whirl in the chaos. The wind continued to howl, but brought with it hints of the demonic laughter coming from the deep. A single, pale, elegant hand reached slowly out of the water, and slammed its fierce, red claws into the side of the ship, pulling itself out from the waves. Behind it trailed a smooth and humanlike figure, followed by a mess of thick black scales that crafted themselves into some resulting tail shape. Its face was young and innocent, but its eyes glowed a wicked green in the inky darkness of the night, and its teeth filled grin excreted some horrific and terrifying implication of laughter. A second, a third and too many to count plunged out of the blue, and clung desperately to the side of the vessel. One by one they pulled themselves out of the water, and climbed upwards towards the deck at the promise of bloodshed and flesh....

Well spank his arse and call him a monkey! Things were crawling out of the sea. Sadly, they weren't mermaids of a beauty but they were certainly something that would make a man gasp in strain. With what was going on, it was hard to see who was the boss that commanded this chaos, the smart one would probably be under the sea somewhere,underneath the ship perhaps.

"Bloody Hell! Grab my gun your highness!"the boy commanded,the furry creature wasted no time in slinging the gun from the boy's belt up to his hand. Then with the flick of his wrist, the metal snapped out of it's safety as he continued to steer the ship with one hand. Wherever they were going the sea mother's were certainly not pleased with them. He pointed his weapon.

Bang!

One of the creatures melted to the ground in front of him. He snatched at the first sailor he saw after that, with no weapon but a small knife, "oy mate. Don't go jumping the boat yet. Take the wheel and the gun. I'm gonna go fetch some toys for us all!" the man looked extremely frightened, his eyes were popping out and sweat dribbled down like rain intermingling into a storm on his own body and soul. Jesper sighed pushing his own gun on to the male, to be expected, they were all taken by surprise.

"Defend yourself well. May the albatross bless you a little~"Jesper said in a sing song voice before racing across the ship. He reached for his second gun that would have been strapped to the back strap of his belt.

He pointed the yellow fruit at the fish face pressing it against the upper skin of it's green lips. "Ahaha! Just kidding ugly," he laughed realizing his own predicament as a second ugly fish joined his mate that had a fruit pointed to his face, it rubbed it's sharpening claws together and the enthusiastic man's hostage showed off it's brilliantly dazzling teeth with the hel0p from the strike of lightning through the sky.

" I was seriously kidding about kidding!" he pressed against the peel of the banana and shot the white flesh into it's mouth, granting him a choking surprise. Jesper flung the yellow skin at the other one which was getting ready to dive him from the flank-while listening to Scratch's protest(it was supposed to be the last of his banana supplies). With a few seconds to spare he flung himself through the cabin halls racing downwards into the armory, but not before hearing a very casual voice-in spite of the situation.

The young brunette peered into the prisoners haul seeing the captain and the prisoner, an ex-mate. In a running motion he pointed towards the armory, gesturing to the mammal and the monkey squeaked in response. Scurrying down his body into the chambers in a second.

"Sir Magicman if you have time to be chatting up a storm with our pretty prisoner I suggest maybe you want to continue your discussion with her while you battle off the guests that seem to want to have dinner with us," his wet foot wear went squished against the wooden floorboards as he entered with a smile for the man with side burns. Jesper gave a brief nod of acknowledgement to Gia.

Gianna was listening, her head down. She listened, the ship jerking her to the side.

"Aye. What's my duty, sir?"

"Sir Magicman-" She heard a crew member, Jesper begin. The squishing was enough for her to want to punch him in the face.

"Er-Jesper, is it? Shut up. If ye' were down 'ere ye'd want to have a discussion about this. We're on our way up. Get outta here. And next time, please say hello instead of actin' like I'm a dog."

Gia looked over at her captain and nodded slightly.

Ryland didn't need to be told twice... In fact, he was insulted that this riffraff had the guts to tell him once, but he hadn't time to worry about that now. He reached into his pocket, and pulled out an old rusted set of keys, and skid them across the floor so they stopped just within Gia's reach...

"Watch that cheek of yours, Jespy boy... Its not so small a crew that we couldn't afford a few losses..."

He stared for a few moments, anger indented deep into his face, before it fell into a wide grin, and he begin to laugh. He grabbed his cutlass out of his sheath and made for the deck...

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The demon-like creatures continued to haul themselves out of the black ocean, snarling and screeching with hideous laughter as they went. One of the monstrosities was already tearing into the corpse of its fallen ally, and about half a dozen more dragged themselves around the deck, looking for their next victim...

Aye Aye Missy. No need to get all pox faced. Just trying to lighten the mood’ere,” he held up his hands in front of him in a sarcastic taunt. The reasons why he chose the ladies on the land rather than the sea, some of them can get so heated over the smallest of words, although the ladies in general seemed pretty fiery when it came to words-making him revise his thoughts- why did they always pick on every single little thing? “Although you’re the one who called yourself a dog,-not me,”he chuckled lightly.

Watch that cheek of yours, Jespy boy…It’s not so small a crew that we couldn’t afford a few losses.” The captain said seriously before beginning to laugh.

Of course,” he gave an exaggerated bow. His water filled hat fell right down with a splosh. “But I do hate assisting in sending those ‘I’m so sorry for your loss boohoo' letters,” he swiped his hat off of the ground and proceeded outside the door way allowing Ryland to pass the door first.

The younger male eyed the cutlass the man unsheathed and tweaked his voice slightly higher humorously, “ Aaaw! Sir but what shall I do with all these other weapons that I’ve brought before your feet,” he said it as a joking statement rather than a question. His hands swept to the side at the empty space; although the space wasn’t empty for long as the squeak of a certain ball of fur had returned.

From its tail it dragged three light weighted swords and from its arms it dragged a bag of flint locked pistols. The brunette took up the two pistols allowing the monkey to climb aboard his arm once more while breathing quite heavily. “Aaah! What a good monkey!” he briefly stroked the animal’s nose as it sighed planting it's body on top of his shoulder.

Gia snorted at the keys tossed at her.

"Aye Capt'n? I realize yer' dense but don't ye' realize my hands are a bit useless above my head?"

She chuckled as he unlocked her hands, and she brought them down around her face, stretching them and popping her knuckles. Looking at her battered, calloused hands sent her into a memory. Her hands had looked like this after her sister died. She had spent hour after hour punching sacs of flour. Her hands had turned out bruised and bleeding, not even coming close to the pain she felt inside.

Gia smiled slyly at the men around her and procured a dagger from her corset.

"A lady always has her dagger, correct?"

She followed her captain toward the deck, and what she saw above was the reason for a slight gasp that escaped her lips. She looked down at the water that was pooling around her ankles--she convinced herself it was water and not..--and turned towards the nearest edge of the boat. The corners of her lips turned upwards.

"Seem to be in a bit o' trouble, are we?"

Ignored like always! What could the young man do about it? With a hearty chuckle he squished his feet back out on to the deck. Finding a young man shivering for his life in the corner, he tapped him by the shoulder shoving the extra weapons into his hand. “Come.Come. Now don’t be so scared we’ve been through worst!” he smiled at the sailor twirling his two guns in his hands.

They came like the endless waves that stroked their ship. With a crack from the gun one of the sea lubbers fell over not knowing what had hit him. After that another one fell, then another. Sure the crew was caught by surprise but they were the ones in control now. He whistled as the savage first mate cut through the monsters as if they were paper. He looked very enthusiastic about his job.

At least you know we won’t be starving for days,” he chuckled kicking over a sea monster. They did look a little bit like a fish. “Do you think they’re edible?” Jesper asked his partner who made a disgusted face. The monkey probably was not the right person to ask.

Captain are these thing edible?” he called as he placed a bullet through one of their heads while walking over to the captain who was speaking with their cute blonde mechanic.
