Captain Barndog's Skull & Shackles
ZZ First Mate Master Scourge
Cruel First Mate of the Man's Promise
Master Scourge is the Wormwood’s boatswain and master-at-arms, and Mr. Plugg’s right-hand man. As boatswain, he is in charge of all activities and sailors on deck, and as master-at-arms, he is responsible for discipline. Master Scourge is a sneering man with a braided beard and a mouth full of gold teeth. His body is tall and thin, and even his long coat and heavy boots fail to give any impression of strength or bulk. A sadistic coward, Scourge uses his association with Plugg as protection and in return has no morals when it comes to the tasks
his master sets. He is bold and violent when the odds are stacked in his favor, happily kicking a dying dog in the street if asked to do so. But should that dog get up and bite, he quickly flees.
Unnecessarily cruel even by pirate standards Scourge is the yes man of Mr. Plugg. It was discovered that Scourge was part of the plot to drive a wedge between Cutthroat Grok and her boy toy Urdnot.
Aboard the “Man’s Promise” Scourge served as first mate before Urdnot pinned him to the deck with a great axe.
