Whalers of the Blue Claw
Well it seems the Blue Claw and her masters are quite alive and well, this is the dreaded whaling ship of the olden days of when whaling was a noble profession…….ya right! This was one profession that legalised piracy and breed a entire generation of blood thirsty and crazy mariners that were driven by profit and riches. The Blue Claw well on the outside it seemed to be just another whaling ship of the day and one captained by the legendary Montgomery Palpatine with a crew that would as well become legends all on there own.
Now we have already told the story of the exploding whale that three of these men dove head first into and killed from the inside to save their beloved ship and crew…..now seriously these men are crazy but their antics didn’t stop there; nope not by a long shot, they sailed the seven seas and plundered ship and port alike. These mariners where Pirates disguised as Whalers and well those in charge in England and eventually the New World simply ignored the reports and testimony of survivors that the beloved Blue Claw was anything other than a whaling ship……why would a simply whaling vessel need more cannons than a war ship! Seriously the Blue Claw is still docked within Nantucket and tourists can visit her daily and yup many, and I mean many cannons are on display. This vessel sailed the seven seas for centuries yet it’s official record is well a bit doctored thus making dating the ship impossible, she went by many names through her tenure on the sea and never once was scuttled and the men who served on her decks are numerous and like the waves wash away the shore time would eventually bring an end to her adventures.
Not to mention the laws of the land, eventually whaling would be outlawed throughout much of the free world as the ruthless whalers nearly rendered the gentle giants extinct. We tend to forget that this occupation was simply one of profit and greed and the Blue Claw was one of the worst, they would sink other whaling vessels to steal their claim, they would board and butcher other merchant ships to steal the supplies and well they would assault naval vessels to steal the loot and sail away into the mists of the sea to be forgotten. As I stated this ship sailed under many names throughout its run only to end its adventures known as the Blue Claw. The many changes in her name and her leadership would leave many frustrated and confused by the reports of this ship being one of piracy and not of whaling.
Though through all the years the only thing that didn’t change would be the royal blue figurehead of a crab with it’s blue claws piercing the sky as she sailed. This ship would also be known for it’s fishing, though in reality the legal profession of working the sea was not something the legends of the Blue Claw would desire as the money was better if they took to piracy and hunting fellow whalers. Now one can say that the crew of the Blue Claw was simply killing the other greedy whalers to spare the gentle giants….if that was the case why did this ship retire from whaling only a few years prior to its decreed end and continue to hunt and profit on the meat, oil, bones and well the whales it hunted to near extinction.
The leadership of this ship would change throughout it’s run and by the 1800’s the original whalers of the Blue Claw would have rotated off the ship and become warriors on land many of witch would end up within the FIP program and thrust into multiple wars. As I said the reports of the Blue Claw are doctored so I am not able to report exact dates but seems that what I originally thought was off, this ship was not one of the commercial whaling vessels that really plundered the sea in the early 1900’s as this ship was already docked within Nantucket and her legendary crew was all basically retired…..sort of.
Her dark history of piracy is well documented as well, though basically only here within the United States and many of her crew would be hanged for their crimes though the worst of the lot would all escape the gallows and be allowed to walk free. Captain Montgomery Palpatine and his brother Charles Palpatine would come to land many times to ride the open roads with there brothers Wilhuff and Dover as the infamous Highwaymen…..lets not forget about there nephew Reverdy Jamestown. During the time when the brothers rode the open rode and terrorised locals and law enforcement alike, the Blue Claw would be captained by either Carol Webster or Avery Webster and on more than few voyages Rusty Rutherford would take the helm; this ship is full of mystery and its deck has bathed in gallons of blood both human and whale.
Now why the Blue Claw would simply go from being the scourge of the seven seas to a simple relic of a bygone era is unknown, but one can assume that this is do to the FIP Program, the rise of the US Cavalry and the need for talented men to fight on land. Also this FIP Program would simply give these men the ultimate excuse to explain their immortality, we tend to believe that the FIP Serum was simply a hoax and it was nothing more than part of the Technocracy’s plan to explain how and why it’s agents where still alive long after they should have turned to dust.
Now I as well have reports that the Blue Claw simply was a whaling vessel at one point and than it simply changed its mind and they would become the protector of the gentle giants by hunting the hunters. This is something that I want to believe as it makes far more sense than they simply hunted their fellow man for sport, though they would still profit of the whales that had been hunted and than their is the white whale story that has been told by mariners for ages about the the exploding whale and well three men who dove into the mouth, swallowed hole and well “BOOM” this seems very Horsemen like and their whole mantra being “You wont be able to miss it!” and that was something nobody could miss and it has been well documented. Again if this ship would become the hunter of the whalers than again why is still praised as the “King of the Whaling Vessels” and why is her crew still alive and well….well some of her crew.
Take a damned good look at those listed below, we have well the Pale Rider, Invincible One, the GOAT, General Kingsbury, and the Greatest Thief to Ever Live……don’t forget about Senator Georgetown; yup this proves it that family is far older than we ever imagined, yup seeing this ship was in action since 1541 and originally chartered to England and eventually would become a warship that would help blockade the British during the American Revolution, fight within the War of 1812 and again as a blockade runner and scourge of the Confederacy during the Civil War (1861 – 1865) again who was onboard during these wars is not known but one can assume the Montgomery, Charles, Archibald, and Avery weren’t onboard seeing we have records of them within the Cavalry fighting on behalf of the Union……though we have no records of Rusty, Carol and Wendell not to mention Ichabod, Jamie and James so seeing these men’s whereabouts are unknown we can assume they were onboard the Blue Claw……Rusty first recorded whereabouts aren’t known till 1941 when Pearl Harbour was attacked and he was within the US Navy, James Groves is a bit of an enigma as he simply vanished, Jamie Georgetown would show up again in the trenches of the eastern front of First World War (1915) than again when he entered the US Senate just after Bail Canterbury, and Ichabod well he shows up again during the Normandy Invasion in 1944 than again as the curator of the Nantucket Maritime Museum and Owner of the Blue Claw Crab House within Nantucket.
This does kind of fall within the last known timeline of the Blue Claw and when she returned home from her final voyage and would become moored within the Nantucket Marina forevermore come 1910 well that’s the date on record though I don’t by it seeing this ship was reported to have been scene sailing through the mists of the sea as late as 1980…..though again this could be old tales told by salty sea dogs trying to spook the younger generation of a pirate ship with an immortal and blood thirsty crew that will gladly send you to the a watery grave within the Locker…….okay I smell technocracy all over this information…………………………………………….
<<<<I know of this ship, this is the scourge of my fleet and sunk many of my vessels during my days on the seas….they were the scourge of honest men trying to make an honest living. I knew of this ship as the Nor’easter and tangled with her crew personally, I will never forget seeing that damned deep blue crab figurehead breaching the mists…..I knew then that I was about to have a very bad day, they were merciless and unforgiving sending many of my men to straight to the locker forevermore. They pillaged my cargo, plundered our personal equipment and than gave my ships to my property to be free, they plundered my fleet so many times that I was forced to forgo the trade of whaling and slave trading…..I nearly went bankrupt and am lucky that they simply marooned me on deserted island with a single bullet in my gun, they showed no mercy or quarter to my crew and keelhauled my officers.
The dreaded Blue Crab and her crew where soulless beings with mastery of the sea, I hate to even admit this and state they outsmarted me numerous times and controlled the mysteries of the sea; they might have been whalers at some point but by the time they engaged my fleet……nope they had given up on that career, they sunk my ship the Rainbow with a bloody Orca, yup a bloody killer whale and not just one but an entire bloody pod.
The captain simply sounded a horn and the water around us started to boil as the beasts surfaced with such rage that it tore my ships asunder and drowned my men one by one, then they struck with their cannons and sang the Rainbow and her support ships a very lethal cannonade as they tore flesh from bone and left nothing for the carrion of the sea to feast upon. I survived by the skin of my teeth and would end up a wounded man, that was hellbent for revenge, though regardless of the size of my fleet, how many men I had at my disposal, and nor how much I prepared…..they would seek me out like a carrier pigeon and send my fleet straight to hell!
So I can confirm and so can my mates that this is very real and they where NOT WHALERS or SLAVERS they where simply pirates that would plunder my fleet time and time again…..They are the reason the East Indian Trading Company nearly went bankrupt and still nobody would speak ill of this ship, nobody believed that the noble Blue Claw was anything more than a Whaling Vessel. They are dangerous to anyone that treads the sea and calls the oceans home, they are scourges of the sea that made Blackbeard, Captain Kidd and the other great pirates seem tame and they simply cared nothing for quarter…….I have four words for the immortals of the Blue Crab; “Revenge Will Be Mine!” also Montgomery, Charles and Rusty burn in hell you might have stopped me this time, your next hunt will be your last as I have restored some old friends of mine that want to say hello….Sir Arthur McGowan Out>>>>
<<<< This was the Jolly Rodger of the Blue Crab or the Nor’Easter as I knew her…..McGowan Out>>>>
<<<<McGowan you are quite lucky to be alive having tangled with the Blue Claw, I heard they didn’t leave anyone alive and sent them all to my locker. I have heard the tales of the Blue Crab and I know personally many of those listed below and believe me you are truly lucky to be among the living and not simply forgotten by time; Hell I despise the Harbingers for what happened to my flag ship and there is two reasons I haven’t blasted them back to the stone age………Reason One: Montgomery Hilliard, Charles Belmont, Carol Webster, Rusty Rutherford, James Groves, Barney Pilgrim and Archibald Kingsbury!! Reason Two: One of my Pirates is within their ranks, and directly connected to the Horsemen and Rogue One……I don’t blast my own men and I DON’T FUCK WITH HORSEMEN!! This should be a life lesson for you McGowan, I don’t give a shit how strong or powerful you think you are, the Horsemen will end you before you can blink, I suggest you swallow back that rage before you open a can of worms even your ancient ass cant handle and yes I have heard of you McGowan and I can say this I am not bloody impressed…….cry all you want about Pirates, rule one on the open seas: Board Slave Ships and kill everyone onboard minus the slaves, hand the ship over to them and take some gold for your trouble……end of rules!
As for the Blue Claw I can say this they are legends among those that make a living on the high seas, we have all heard the legends and whats worse we now know they are all fucking Horsemen or at least connected to the Horsemen in some fashion. Also their is a rule in our world “Don’t ever anger Colonial, people go missing and are never found!” Same rule applies to the Horsemen, I am not afraid of the old wooden ship that is the Blue Claw….that ship is moored in Nantucket, nope I am more worried about whatever ship they are sailing on now. For me to state this is a fucking miracle as I am they Fucking Sea Wolf!, I bow down to no man or beast, I rule the seven seas and am the true scourge of the open water……though even I have to think twice about engaging any vessel that owned, manned or captained by anyone that is on that list below.
Oh there is Rule Number Three for not blasting the Harbingers into the stone age……you want to here it; yup I will fucking tell you, the little bastard of the Harbingers is married to my First Mates God Daughter and I may be cruel and ruthless but I don’t have a death wish not from my First Mate…..no thats a respect thing, nope her father is the bloody Gargoyle enough said! Those reading this might think I have softened in my old age, to that I say come at me and find out how soft I have become…….spoiler I will be the one still standing and looting your fucking corpse!…..Ratchet Out>>>>
<<<<Arr even I would avoid the Blue Crab, we heard the stories and witnessed the exploding whale……didn’t know that the captain and his mates dove into the belly of the beast; seriously even I am not that insane. The Tempest the fastest ship to sail the seven seas would never think of engaging or trying to outrun that damned Crab and the magic that enshrouded it. I can confirm McGowan’s account about them being able to summon the beasts of the sea and sicking them onto enemy ships….where the hell do you think the term “Unleash the Kraken” comes from or that can simply be an old sea dogs tale; whatever it is, you tangle with the Blue Crab it will be your bones laying within Davy Jones Locker being scuttled and scavenged by the crabs of the deep.
All seafarers know the legend of the Blue Claw and the magic it wields, though I feel the magic was less from the figurehead and more from the men onboard that dreaded ship…….it’s officers and mates could do know wrong and they would simply be ignored while others suffer the consequences, remember one thing most of that crew are Kingsmen and that’s enough to silence any naysayers and if your regular sailor well…..they knew the risks and the rewards outweighed the final price of swinging from a gallows pole branded a pirate…..Gibbs Out>>>>
<<<<All I am seeing here are a bunch of lies and conspiracies being spewed forth by the Demure and well some people that I thought had common sense……excluding McGowan he is just a bloody fool. The Blue Crab is nothing more than fishing vessel of yesteryear, the men listed below didn’t sail on that ship. Its’s captain and crew can be found listed within the Maritime Museum here in Nantucket and as well within Mystic Seaport where some of the ships artifacts can be found.
The salty tale of three men diving into the mouth of a white whale and causing it explode and come out unharmed…..well thats simply hogwash and nothing more than a tale told to scare greenhorns. As I said this was a whaling ship and fishing vessel that sailed the seas from 1743 – 1910, it has been repaired numerous times throughout its very long voyage and it now sits moored within the Old North Wharf right here in Nantucket Massachusetts; come on down and visit the old sea town and enjoy a nice cup of chowder.
The old salty dogs listed below….nope not connected to the Blue Crab, not pirates, just simple retired FIP veterans and they shouldn’t have to deal with these insane conspiracies and seriously Ratchet and Gibbs I thought better of you two, I guess you have gotten to deep into the rum; remember the unwritten rule of the matrix “Don’t Drink and Deck” and in your case Gibbs Don’t drink before accessing a terminal.
Again I can’t emphasize enough that these men are not connected to the Blue Claw, they are men that have done far greater things and have helped reshape this wonderful country of ours and for that I thank them all and salute them. To call them scurvy dogs, old salty dogs, buccaneers, and pirates is simply false……to call them Patriots, Americans, Veterans and Noble Men is another all together, these men are true blue American hero’s and they sacrifice everyday to keep us all safe from the dangers lurking within the shadows.
The Legends of Nantucket
Montgomery “Hellsing” Palpatine (Doppler): Well it seems that nobody has touched this page in a while, so it looks safe to input the data we have received from our newest contact about the Wellermen and why don’t we start with the Captain of that dreaded vessel. According to our contacts this man has been in command of the Blue Claw from it’s humble beginnings till….well that part is unclear as according to our research the Blue Claw is still owned by Montgomery Palpatine. This ship would pose as a whaling ship yet it was more of a pirate vessel, yes it flew the black sail and would sail directly alongside the other dreaded ship the Neverland. Now we will get back to the Neverland and it’s dreaded crew and captain, yet first things first……Montgomery Palpatine wasn’t just the owner/operator of the Blue Claw, nope he was the damn owner of the Neverland as well and he commanded both ships as an admiral would. Robert Churchill would be the appointed captain of the Neverland yet he would take orders from the flagship of the fleet…….yup the Blue Claw.
Montgomery himself well he is downright crazy, he would proudly snub his nose at the authority and hoist his black sails and engage well any ship that dared to confront the Blue Claw. He would hunt both beast and man, and send many down to the locker for their eternal sleep, this ship was a warship disguised as a fishing vessel and according to records provided by our contacts…..well it fought in many conflicts and was never once sunk, damaged or even beached till well it’s final resting place in Nantucket. One can say that the Pale Rider is immortal and that is simply an understatement. Our contact was tormented by Montgomery for ages and never once bested the mind and skill of this Wellermen, the Pale Rider has no soul, no heart and simply kills for the sake of killing….he has some power over the creatures of the sea and would use these beasts against his targets as well send many to swim with the sharks.
He hunted whales, slavers, and the enemies of England; according to my contacts he was the Grand Admiral of the Royal Navy and oversaw the entirety of the English fleet and is the reason the English Navy would become the super power of the age. Though this Kingsman would eventually find the New World long before Christopher Columbus and well before the Pilgrims and well lets just say that’s when the Pale Rider and the Highwaymen would be born as he proved he was just as deadly on land as he was on the sea. This does beg to question if the rest of the Horsemen were sailors within Montgomery’s Navy and if so…..well that does explain allot. In conclusion don’t tangle with this Technocrat, Pirate King, Whaler, Commander, Hunter, Highwayman and Horsemen as he is far more dangerous than anyone can ever imagine. Montgomery is well the bringer of death and with him rides the rest of the legends of the storm.
Carol Webster (Shelby): The First Mate of the Blue Claw and one man that is a true terror to behold, Shelby is more than meets the eye and someone that until our contacts disclosed his resume it was assumed he was nothing more than a rigger. Well we where very wrong as it turns out Carol here is a true monster in battle and personally trained by Montgomery to command not just the Blue Claw in his absence, but the Neverland, as well a few other vessels of note…..the Nevermore, the Rancor, the Kraken, and the Beskar to name a few of the vessels these actual Admirals commanded; don’t forget about the rest of the English Navy and yes they commanded the Siren long before Avery Cortland took the helm and renamed it the Siren’s Call…..also these men commanded the Tempest and guess what that ship now serves the Crimson Bloods. In the world of the Pirates no one speaks of these ancient admirals and what they created…..nope it’s like an unspoken tradition to forgo these Wellermen and simply accept Ratchet and the Governor as the kings of the sea. Well in reality it is these men that are the Gods of the Sea and nobody can hold a candle to them, they have sunk countless ships, sailed every sea known and forgotten to man; they have tamed the beasts of the sea and conquered nations. Yup good old Carol Shelby is nothing more than a rigger, yup he cant hurt you, yup he is a kind hearted old timer…….Oh Hell’s No!
Shelby like the rest of them is downright nuts, has zero care for self preservation, is a one man boarding party……..just ask the Neon Church about that one, he is a rigger yes….just simply the master of rigging anything and building anything, he has fought on land, air and sea and has truly earned his place among the Horsemen. Well Carol we are no longer fooled, you are outed and the world will know that you are a true monster, you have killed more than cancer, you have brutalised privateers, and simple maritime merchants for too long without being caught. You might want to simply forget about this man, though history hasn’t forgotten and some of the choices you have made will come back to bite you.
Avery Webster (Mariner): Now its onto the GOAT, or simply known as the Mariner; the brother of the First Mate and Second Mate of the Blue Claw and would become the acting First Mate when his brother would take the helm as Captain. Mind you the leadership of this ship was all sorts of skewed seeing Monty was a Fleet Admiral and Carol his right hand man and also an Admiral…so in reality it would be the GOAT and Cricket that would command the Blue Claw directly. Mind you the Palpatine Brothers would disembark the Blue Claw often and take to the land, leaving the Blue Claw to be commanded by the Webster Brothers and lets just say I am not sure who was worse……Palpatine or Webster, but like his brother the GOAT was down right crazy, he jumped into the mouth of a blue Whale not just once, but well numerous times. He simply stated “I got this!” and swan dove into the mouth and than “Boom!”…..reports from our contact state that the GOAT said bigger beasts have tried to swallow him before and failed, a whale is nothing compared to a Krayt Dragon (Whatever that is).
Basically the Mariner or the GOAT is known for running the ship like a well oiled machine and keeping law and order aboard the vessel, he was a key player in the murder of most of the crew of the Neverland when Captain Churchill needed to protect and erase the location of the Fountain of Youth, it would be the Webster’s that would spin doctor the butchering with the English Courts and keep all the surviving members of the Neverland and the Captain and crew of the Blue Claw off the gallows. The GOAT is now the mayor of Mystic Seaport and keeps a close eye on the Blue Claw within Nantucket from his political post, controlling the known history and making damned sure that the Blue Claw, her crew and officers are scene in a good light as nothing more than whalers and fishermen…..not soldiers, pirates and the butchers of man that they really are.
You can bet your bottom dollar that everyone on this list is a Technocrat, FIP Veteran and Horsemen so you have been warned; the Blue Claw and her Officers are quite dangerous and deeply connected to the UCAS Intelligence Division and are now hunting those that oppose the Old Man instead of the beasts of the sea. We can thank many of them for the Army Rangers, the Paratroopers and many US Military advancements, though at what cost as it seems the Wellermen have been mind controlling and spin doctoring the truth in there favor for ages; these men are truly immortal and have been sailing, hunting and fighting for centuries if not longer and they have our newest contact terrified, now onto the Snapper and he’s a handful.
Wendell Flanigan (Snapper): On every Whaling Ship the most dangerous and deadliest job to hold would be a Harpooner and Boatman, that’s simply cause these men would leave the main ship get in a rowboat and engage the very angry whale directly. The life span of a sailor that worked the boats was very short and many would retire after the first voyage, if they weren’t critically injured, sent down to the locker by the whale or killed through infection or blood loss. That’s what makes the Snapper here and the other Harpooners and Boatman very dangerous, he not only survived unscathed he survived numerous hunts and would become one of the Blue Claws premiere harpooners.
The Snapper would rise to hold the position of Second Harpooner and never fail at his job any whale, beast, or man that got in his way died a very painful death and it would be Wendell here that would modify the harpoons of the Blue Claw to be sharper, lighter, and easier to deploy. He was able to launch multiple harpoons into his target at a rate unheard of by any other fisherman of the time and his harpoons where half the size and half the weight. Our contact stated that this man would even use his harpoons as a melee weapon while boarding, yes the Boatman where also the boarding party and when the Blue Claw would engage our contact for the first time, it would be the Snapper and his Harpoon mastery that would pierce the flesh of McGowan and use the ropes top hoist him up the mast to hang upside down with a Snapper approved harpoon through his gut.
He stated that if he hadn’t been hoisted into the mast by the Snapper he surly would have perished when the ship was scuttled and sent to the sea floor, he was spared the brutal death of being eaten by sharks or drowning and would be saved by the English Navy……though when he reported the crime of piracy and murder, he was laughed out of the Mariners Hall and would simply become a favorite target by every ship within the fleet of Admiral Montgomery Palpatine.
Needless to say the Snapper enjoyed his post and could care less about being promoted to a higher status, seeing he wasn’t as brutal nor as crazy as the First Harpooner and Boatman…..not to mention the Chief Harpooner and Boatman. Many of the whaling ships would have numerous boats launched, and hundreds of sailors taking on there prey….nope not the Blue Claw, they had Four Boats and a few dozen men that would be deployed and lets just say it would be the officers that would always return successful and it would be these boatman that would command the Marines that stormed the other ships during piracy boarding. Our contact stated numerous time that he would simply try to outrun the Blue Claw and other vessels instead of engaging them, seeing it would never end well for McGowan and his people.
Now with that said, if the king of the sea Arthur McGowan was terrified of these men, his men simply refused to fight them and would jump overboard and allow for the Wellermen to seize the cargo, stating its more merciful to face the sharks than the Harpooners…..ya these men were devils in disguise, true monsters, and yet never faced charges or consequences for there actions; nope just treated as hero’s and legends of the sea……even to the point where they were able to rebel against the Crown, commit treason, and even Regicide; yet never face the courts, never fear the block, and never be concerned about meeting the hangman. Now we have another mean, crude, rude, and simply nasty son of a bitch up next; onto the Jersey Devil and well this one is going to be a good one.
Rusty Rutherford (Jersey Devil): The First Harpooner and First Boatman, this man is the brother of one of the Highwayman and founder of the Jamestown Family…..yup they are part of this as well, good old Jersey Native Rusty Rutherford served on the Blue Claw with the rest of his family and he would board the Blue Claw, leaving his home in Jersey England to become one of the most feared members of this dreaded ship. He personally bested McGowan’s best men numerous times, he feared nothing and would be known as the man not to fuck with in Port Royal….yup within the Pirate Mecca this man was considered hands off if you wanted to live to see tomorrow. Rusty here is a true legend with a firearm and could rapid fire flintlocks and match locks faster than any human being alive, his skills are legendary and his ability to reload….well I have scene the records provided by McGowan and his associate who was the Governor of Jamaica at the time……yup they tried to arrest Rusty for piracy and needless to say he blasted his way out and left over fifty redcoats dead before he decided to draw his sword and actually engage the lawmen……guess what happened next nothing Rusty simply walked onto the Blue Claw laughing and flipping off the redcoats and yelling “Come At Me, Mother Fuckers!” Back in England no charges where ever filed against him and he would go onto to be one of the most beloved of the Blue Claw.
Now on the ship this man was all business at all times, his boat was the first to hit the water and he would be the last to leave the sea after making damned sure what he was hunting was deader than a doornail. He would be the first to use ballistic harpoons long before the technology existed, loading them into his musket……we can blame the Snapper for reducing the size and weight to allow this and as many would learn Rusty is a crack shot and his reload speed was inhuman, he would fire his musket as fast as a trained riflemen would fire a bolt action Winchester or Springfield. Now he simply didn’t rely on ballistic fire or hip fired harpoons…nope he was also a nightmare with the harpoon in his hands, like the Snapper he would use it as a melee weapon and learned quickly that the barbed hook could disembowel the target rendering them…..well dead quickly, his sword play was also legendary as he moved at speeds unheard of before with a skill never before scene. According to our contacts he created his own swordsmen school that blended his love of the pistol with his love of the blade and well….his name might be Rusty be his skills aren’t rusty and he has only gotten worse or better depending on how you want to look at it.
He survived being dragged to the locker by a Kraken only to rise to the surface, a little worse for ware though the beast was subdued by Rusty and lets just say the Kraken has served the Blue Claw ever since and I am not talking about the Pirate known as the Kraken……its rumored that the kraken that the Sea Wolves control is actually the same kraken that Rusty bested in battle and lent to Ratchet once the Wellermen retired and became legends on land, now that’s just a rumor but seeing how Ratchet reacted to this page I can believe that rumor basically confirmed and also we always thought Ratchet and the Governor to be the Sea Kings and yet it looks like they are simply posers trying to live up to the likes of the Blue Claw and her Wellermen; now onto Charles Belmont.
Charles “Belmont” Palpatine (Captain): The brother of Montgomery and well Third Mate????? Nope try the true Captain of the Blue Claw and owner of many of the ships within the fleet, yes they had a fleet and it numbered a few hundred ships of varying sizes….don’t forget what they didn’t own they commanded as the most senior and top ranking members of the Royal Navy. Charles here was the public facing member of the family as he cleaned up well, was civil and knew how to interact with the nobles and royals, where Monty simply didn’t care about the etiquette and simply stated fact and didn’t pull punches nor mince words…..seems his friend Baily Georgetown took more after Monty than Charles, but in the political game it would be Charles that would become the legend of that world and one that could and still can put anyone in there place politically.
Though don’t forget this man is a legendary Wellermen, Horsemen, Crystal Dragon, Kingsman and Presidents Men…..not to mention one of the founding fathers of the erasing profession, so don’t under estimate this political mastermind, he can gut you like a fish faster than a cyber juicer can blink. When he was onboard the ship ran smooth like a well oiled machine and as he would take the helm and instill a level of moral and confidence that was unsurpassed, he was the man that convinced the crew of the Blue Claw to take on over a dozen French warships and McGowan’s flag ship the “Rainbow” alone…….lets just say a crew of just about 200 men took on odds that were not in there favor and they came out smelling like roses, they bested the French added many ships to there fleet, and sunk the Rainbow and leaving McGowan marooned on a deserted island with nothing but a single bullet for his gun.
It would be the charm of Charles that would convince the French sailors to join the fleet, or face the wrath of the Snapper, and Jersey Devil……needless to say they trusted the words of Charles and served the fleet over suffering a brutal death at the hands of the Snapper. Now don’t count Montgomery out of the equation either Charles didn’t budge without his brothers approval and it would be Monty that would give the French the thumbs up to continue to breath air……well until Montgomery tired of the French and was able to replace the snail eaters with true blue Irish, English and Native American Sailors and well the French learned a quick and valuable lesson……sharks do enjoy French food and the English really hate the French.
Charles himself, well he has mastered politics and battle…..he has served in many political posts from mayor to president, he butchered the governor of Jamaica once he learned that he was aligned with McGowan and convinced the King of England that it would be in his best interests to appoint him to be the Governor of that pirate infested region…..yes Charles could even manipulate a King into doing his bidding. We need to carefully watch Charles Palpatine as he takes his nephew under his wing and as he grooms his son to walk in his footsteps, these Palpatine’s are very dangerous both in battle, and in politics and it seems many work within the deep state but a few are willing to play politics and it’s those I am afraid of as they all serve the Old Man and the Technocracy…..now onto Locker.
Ichabod Ivory (Locker): Okay now onto the Third Harpooner and Boatman of the Blue Claw, they call him Locker and that’s simply do the amount of men he sent down to his captains locker…..or should I say “Davey Jones Locker”. Now we have already discussed what the job of these Harpooners was and what they were responsible for, what I neglected to mention above is that this ship has four Harpooners and Chief Master Harpooner….I made a mistake above and they had five boats not four as the Chief would have his own boat and crew; still five is not much better than four. The big piece of the puzzle is that the Harpooners and boat masters of the Blue Claw never changed, they never died, they never received career ending injuries and they simply would never yield; this ship had hundreds if not thousands of voyages under it’s belt and not one of the officers ever faltered, it’s crew would change as men would die, retire or simply be feed to the sharks…..but it’s officers well they stayed loyal and spent more time at sea than on land; well till current. Boat Master Ichabod Ivory here was one of the worst as he tossed his humanity overboard and never looked back. He was one of the chief marines that would command the boarding parties under orders to butcher all aboard, and rescue the cargo….the slaves, if the Orders where to take the ship he would not be the man to deal with vetting those that surrendered, nope Locker’s job was to paint the decks red with blood and send the bodies down to the locker to feed the sharks.
He was the ships chief executioner and punisher, he followed all orders and sliced many throats as condemned would be tied helplessly to the mast; he whipped the men into shape and would gladly keelhaul anyone that well deserved it. This man’s soul was sold long before he stepped onto the Blue Claw as he worked as a state sanctioned headsmen and eventually grew tired of beheading and hanging criminals and those the royals simply wanted gone, when he had the chance to change careers and become a sailor…..well he jumped on it and to serve under the Pale Rider well that was a true honour. Onboard it was Ivory’s Way or the Highway well that’s what the men thought, in reality he simply was following orders, but nobody wanted to be sent to see the Locker, nor would they want to be dragged out onto the deck to face the Locker and the mercy of Montgomery.
On a ship the Captain or in Montgomery’s case the Admiral was Judge, Jury and Executioner and they at times handed the job of executions off to their punisher and well Locker is highly skilled and thoroughly enjoys his trade. As a Harpooner well he was one of the best and like the others would deploy the harpoon as a melee weapon, a style crafted by Wesley Burns and mastered by all the officers onboard. The one and only rule was that the harpoon was reserved for the beasts of the sea, and their direct enemies and never to be used to execute a sailor….unless it was Arthur McGowan as he didn’t count and it was always used to butcher slavers…..the Blue Claw officers would tie the slavers to the deck wall and slice open their stomachs with the harpoon allowing the barb to pull there viscera out and for them to die slowly, and painfully as they bleed out and watched as the carrion feasted on their guts.
The lucky ones would be tossed overboard to drown and feed the sharks, the unlucky ones mostly the officers would be run through with the harpoon and hoisted up the mast by there feet and left for the gulls…..and those deemed guilty but not an officer or simply someone not on their first voyage would be gutted on the deck and left to die in a pile of guts and blood. It would be Lockers job to determine what class of sailor the victims were and what fate would bestow them……and all would be sent to the locker in some fashion. If the ship was to be scuttled after the cargo secured, well Locker would simply lock the crew in the brig than begin the sinking process……if it was a slave ship, well the slavers were locked in the very chains they used for the slaves, have their legs broken and than well drowned.
Once the Native American crew where brought aboard the Blue Claw to work and yes they did serve on the Blue Claw and were held in high regard, they taught the Locker and others about scalping and well it’s rumored that within the Mystic Seaport Maritime Museum houses the hundreds of slaver scalps they collected during there voyages. Locker himself would simply relish in the punishment and suffering he caused, he would gladly lead any boarding team and butcher anyone that stood in his way. This man would laugh in the face of the law and was very outspoken about his hatred for the French, and anyone that stood in his path or in direct conflict to his masters.
This man never once suffered the consequences for a lifetime of piracy and murder, he has been mostly forgotten by time though he did send thousands to the locker and created many a widow during his time on the Blue Claw. It is rumored that he is still working alongside the GOAT in Mystic Seaport as the Chief of Police though I can’t seem to find any records of this, so I believe this to be nothing but a rumor…..if he is a Horsemen it’s unknown but do consider the Locker to be a Technocrat and servant of the Old Man as he is still deeply loyal to the Pale Rider and Invincible One. Also if you do encounter the Locker…..DO NOT ENGAGE, as he is a master of melee combat, master of the Harpoon and Legendary Killer with no remorse; he is the fucking Locker that all sailors fear, loath and respect……no onto Barnacle.
Jamie Georgetown (Barnacle): His name is Barnacle and he is the lowest ranked officer of the Blue Claw to still be alive, yes he was the lowest rank but he was the Forth Harpooner and Boat Master or Boatman and that’s no simple feat to laugh at. He survived countless voyages, countless hunts and well countless boarding parties and still he lives, this man is a Georgetown and the brother of Montgomery’s best friend and Patriarch of the Georgetown family Baily Georgetown, thus connecting yet another one of the deeply connected crime families to the Wellermen and directly to the Blue Claw……this really is a family business and they are all about legacies; this seems to be a going trend within the rebellion and it’s still going on today within the other agencies and orders as they are all about family dynasties….we are unsure if Jamie here is actually Baily’s brother or his eldest son, as the legacies of the Rebellion don’t make it easy to track linages; even our contacts are unsure and the documentation is all falsified, and what did exist doesn’t anymore so for simplicity we will call Jamie the brother of Baily till we can find actual verification.
So onto Jamie here well not much more can be said than I stated above, this man butchered his way across the seven seas and painted more than one deck with the blood of her crew, he has known for impaling the ships captain or one of her officers and well leaving them mounted naked on the figure head…..yes he would shove the figurehead of the ship or part of it up the victims ass and well leave them there for a brutal death to mimic a barnacle……hence his name and why they called him that, he would also help the Locker in keelhauling victims and he would make damned sure they got to know each and every barnacle on a very personal level. Now the other aspect about Jamie was that he well created the “Walk the Plank” yes this was real as much as historians say it never happened and was simply a Hollywood troupe…..nope Barnacle here would perform this brutal form of execution.
Now unlike the Hollywood trope with the victim being tossed overboard and left to suffer in the sea and drown over time, nope this was to nice for Jamie, he would put a noose around the victims neck or multiple victims, then he would break their ankles, thumbs and elbows and push them off the plank into the sea; this is were death would come slowly as the would not suffer a broken neck from the noose just a simple slow strangulation as they are slammed against the hull of the ship, pulled under and sliced against the barnacles and then brought back to the surface as they acted like a buoy. Death would be slow and very painful and the lucky ones drowned or were shark food quickly and the unlucky ones begged to simply be keelhauled. This execution method would normally leave parts of the victim on the ships hull and would allow further barnacles and other sea life to attach to and feast on.
Yup he was and is not a nice man, this pirate/whaler has no remorse and would only be rewarded for his brutality, in battle he was no joke and would storm the deck with the rest of the Wellermen and leave nothing but a sea of bodies in his wake. He would be one of the masters of the harpoon and would become a true terror with both sword and gun, Barnacle was given free reign to do as he pleased to slavers and eventually the British Navy during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. No king, nor no lawmen could control the Barnacle and now we have to simply forget the horrors he committed….ya I don’t think so, this man has retired and is now a member of the Freedom Patriots and Senator.
He serves as the senator for Washington State and is the current Assistant Majority Leader for the Freedom Party, yup he is a true snake in the grass and has traded his piracy and whaling for a business suit and tie and has become a pirate of another breed a politician in service to the Patriots, Presidents Men, Bounty Hunters and Sons of Odin…..consider him to be a Technocrat and servant of the Old Man as well; okay things are getting juicer we have the infamous Crab next.
James Groves (Crab): Mr. Groves is a Wellermen, well I didn’t see that coming as the only thing I figured that can get the cranky crustacean to move was red wine or a fellow Harbingers wallet. This man needs no introduction as he is the infamous thief, spy, assassin and eraser known simply as Crab, he serves multiple orders and has been a bottom dweller for as long as he has been alive. Crab as a Wellermen makes sense as he was exiled from England for theft of the crown jewels, he was yet allowed back in the same country that said you return your head adorns the London Bridge…well it would take some really connected individuals to get the royals and the law to overlook his exile and waiting beheading if he was to return. Well enter Montgomery and Charles with there award winning smile, charm and well direct command over those under them and that included the king seeing nobody wanted to anger the man who commanded your entire naval division and trained most of your foot soldiers.
Between the Palpatine brothers and the Webster Brothers….I guess one can be forgiven for treason and theft of the crown jewels and eventually the Star of Avalon; yup Bilbo might have been blamed but it was Crab who pulled that heist off. On the Blue Claw Groves served as the Chief Treasurer and Quartermaster….well who better than a world class thief to keep tabs on the money, he would know what to look for when it comes to someone trying to skim off the top or swipe anything….unless it was Mr. Groves that was doing the skimming. His job on the ship was pretty basic and mundane but that’s not what he is known for onboard the Blue Claw, nope it would be his brutality and his work once onboard an opposing ship.
Crab is a tried and true assassin, he is a one of the legendary Royal Assassins that served the king and would remove any political or personal enemy of the crown with zero fear of being punished. He could kill with zero reason, or simply someone looked at him funny and it would “Good Night Gracey” as his blade pierced there back and it would be game over…..and that’s before you take into consideration his work as a Kingsman; yup there is actually a legendary group of Royal Assassins or at least there was as reports indicate the order was absorbed into the Kingsman and would become known as the Shadow Guild, thank you to my contacts for that juicy bit of information. One must ask if the Shadow Guild are older and better than the Kingsman, who is part of that order and how damned terrifying are they……if Mr. Groves is one of the known members and we know he is a true monster than I would prefer to remain ignorant to the rest.
As a member of the boarding party this Royal Assassin would go to work clearing the path for the rest of the Wellermen and making sure they had an easy trip to the captains quarters, though normally he would just ambush them and hold them at sword point. Accepting there surrender and knowing the final call would come down from above and he wouldn’t want to deprive Locker or Barnacle the enjoyment of the execution. Basically this man would put to bed any enemies quickly and without fail proving that the Royal Assassins were NO JOKE and the real deal. Now to think that was his only job, nope this Quartermaster would proudly jump in the boats and go engage the whales with the other harpooners and sailors simply engage in the hunt to keep his skills sharp.
Crab like the rest was trained in the Burns Harpoon style and as well had a few of his own personal styles, though the most deadly would be the Rusty pistol and sword style that again that the officers all knew and personalized. So this legendary thief, wine guzzler and true blue Royal Assassin or now a member of the Shadow Guild is a truly terrifying monster and someone that truly earned his place among the legends of the sea….now we have one that I never saw coming and that is the war god himself Archibald Kingsbury.
Archibald Kingsbury (Colonial): Okay now if you were to tell me that the War God himself was a Wellermen and served underneath Montgomery and Charles Palpatine, I would tell you that you were bloody insane and go get your head checked……though it turns out that he was a Wellermen and served on the Blue Claw at least for a period of time before finding his true calling within the New World and commander and instigator of the American Revolution. He served as the Forth Mate on the ship for some time and would bounce around the leadership as its commanders would go to shore and fight on land or simply take a holiday from the sea. Now as an officer Archibald was both loved and feared for he was ruthless and his temper was something no one and I mean no one ever wanted to invoke the ire of, this still remains true today as it has been reported that “If Colonial gets mad….people disappear.”, and seeing he collects cleaners and erasers like one collects baseball cards…..I am in the camp of believing that reported rumor.
This man on ship and as one of the boatman would be something that would invoke nightmares, legends state that one whale hunt that was taking days like normal; Archibald’s boat was taking a beating and he simply stood up, with blood rolling down his face from a head wound; hoisted his harpoon into the air and bellowed at the whale to accept death for he has been been bested……and according to legend the whale simply surfaced, rolled onto its belly and allowed the Wellermen to finish it off……this is legend mind you but with the Blue Claw there is always a little bit of truth hidden in the myths. He was also the direct commander of the boarding parties and would lead the officers and marines onto the slavers, privateers, merchants and naval ships for well total death and destruction……it is rumored that Archibald was so ruthless as a boarding commander that even our contact stated he simply hide below deck and tried would even crawl into the bilge to avoid the ire of Archibald though he was also avoiding the highly skilled Royal Assassin and well the Chief Harpoon Master as well……as he put it there was basically no one on that ship I wanted to tangle with but Archibald was ruthless and without mercy and quarter.
How long was he onboard for is unknown as the Wellermen sailed till the mid 1800’s but legends state they started around the 1400’s maybe the 1500’s so again its unknown, but he was an active member for a few centuries at least and that’s truly horrifying. It would be when he would find his bride within the village of Boston and decide that he was done with the brutality of the sea and he could do better for the people on land, and the rest is history as Archibald would go onto start a family, create the Sons of Liberty (the original ones) strike a deadly blow to the English and harbor the Blue Claw and the rest of Montgomery and Charles’s fleet and train Elmer Cadbury to be his Fleet Admiral for the Sons of Liberty and eventually the first American Naval Commander and founding father of the US Navy.
Who replaced Archibald as the Forth Mate is still unknown but our contacts are sure that they will have that puzzle solved sooner than later, well we all know that Archibald is a true monster with a legendary temper, but now we know the known unknown that he started off as a ruthless forth mate and boarding commander of the infamous Blue Claw. He has been killing for ages and fighting for what he calls freedom for just as long, so it seems we can blame the Wellermen for the rebellion and all the damned blood thirsty rebels with zero remorse, well up next is a good one the current Governor of the Caribbean and master necromancer Pilgrim.
Barney Pilgrim (Plymouth): Now we get to General Barney Pilgrim of the Caribbean Death Squad and Royal Governor of the British Common Wealth of the Province of the Caribbean League….yes that’s a mouth full, but you know those stuffy Brits and their titles. So we get to discuss another of the Wellermen and this one is one of the ships doctors, or should we just say butchers; seeing the medical treatment during the days of the Blue Claw was very barbaric and many men would loose their lives to rapid fire amputations, infections, and simply basically anything back than. Though for Pilgrim this was a added benefit as he is and always has been a highly skilled master necromancer and voodoo sorcerer under the war Loa, so death is not the end but the start of a eternity of service to the Blue Claw and her sister ships. This doctor simply didn’t care if the basic crew lived or died…nope he had a use for them in death just as in life so it would be cheaper for the Blue Claw to pay out the death benefits to the family and keep the crew member on as a undead servant, than hire a replacement.
Now my contact swears that the Blue Claw used undead crew members and with Barney Pilgrim as one of the chief doctors I can believe it, though my contact has a serious chip on his shoulder when it comes to the Blue Claw and her crew……especially the officer brigade, so his recall and judgement could be swayed by his emotions; though this is the same officer that has zero issues with raising the dead and tossing them in hordes at his foes, so use your own judgement here. There are zero records and accounts of undead pirates being aboard the Blue Claw or any of her sister ships. Now as a doctor he did what he could at the time and from historical records the Blue Claw took care of her men and would make sure they and their family were compensated properly for their injuries or death, being a whaler is already a dangerous job toss in piracy and the danger level increased ten fold.
Rumors and legends indicate that Pilgrims mastery of magic was so strong that even during a time of clarity, religion and logic when the vale between the two worlds was the weakest he was able to summon forth the raw power from within and without to send horrific spells at the enemy, he would cause the sea to part below a enemy ship so it could be swallowed whole and sent straight to the locker, he would manipulate the mists of the sea to cloak the Blue Claw and command the wind to power the sails even on a dead calm day making the Blue claw the fastest ship to sail the seas. Rumors indicate that he would raise the fallen of the slavers ship to attack their own and even command them to walk the depths bellow and crawl aboard a enemy ship in the dead of night to create a floating graveyard that would become an easy target for the Wellermen to pillage and plunder.
We have reports that even the doctors where crazy enough to grab a harpoon and jump into the boats to engage the hunt of the gentle giants, and this doctor feared nothing so hunting a whale was no different than hunting a slaver in his eyes and it would keep his skills honed. Historical records state that only one of the doctors was allowed on a hunt at once and there always had to be one of them onboard at all times, so his bloodthirst would not be felt in every engagement, but for this necromancer he didn’t need to even leave the Blue Claw to be a threat as his magic knew no boundaries. Pilgrim would eventually retire from the Blue Claw and rejoin his friend and comrade Archibald Kingsbury in his defense of freedom and liberty, this once pirate would become a true terror to behold with the return of the Sixth World and he would bring the skills and talents learned on the Blue Claw to the Caribbean Death Squad as well he would simply alert the Governor that he was joining the Crimson Bloods and to remember his place in the hierarchy of Pirate Kings and were he and Ratchet sit……..well below the Blue Claw and her officers, Avery Cortland would gladly accept the legendary Pilgrim and the rest is history, the Blue Claw’s officers might have retired from piracy and sailing the seven seas, though they haven’t allowed their skills to wain and are still revered as the Gods of the Sea……now onto the Ships Navigator.
Wesley Burns (Burn Notice): Now here is a man that is more than meets the eye and is far more than Chief Navigator, this man has all our contacts quaking in there boots, Burns here is Montgomery’s closest and oldest friend alongside Baily Georgetown. Burns is always alongside his best friend and blood brother, he is Monty’s right hand and someone that scares the hell out of me. He is the chief weapons designer for the Blue Claw, he created an entire martial style around the harpoon and turned an already lethal but clunky weapon into one that can be deployed as quickly as one swings a sword and with far more lethality and I wasn’t sure that could be done. My contacts state that Burns here has won some sort of martial tournament three times defeating some of the worlds best and gaining unique talents in the process…..if he wasn’t already a monster, for Christs sake he has a mini rocket launcher on his wrist not to mention a micro harpoon launcher as well that is on his arm. Burns dove headfirst into the mouth of a blue whale to save the Blue Claw…..not once but twice, he always jumped into a boat to engage the gentle giants and would not come back onboard until the whale was dead even if that was days in a dingy.
He would also partake in the boarding process against the slavers and as the Grand Master of the Royal Assassins……lets just say this man would make damned sure that all of the enemies was rendered extinct, if Crab wasn’t bad enough to have his boss on the Blue Claw is down right horrifying…….on a side note, we just learned that Montgomery is the Prince of Wales so having the Grand Master of the Royal Assassins and founder of that order as his right hand makes Monty even that more terror inducing. Burns has become a true monster within the world and proves one thing, the Wellermen are the real deal and care nothing for humanity as they are simply hardened killers with zero remorse.
Arthur Swanson (Edison): Now we have a good one here, the humpty dumpty decker from Swanson England……or that’s what he would have you believe. Lord Swanson here is someone that has been around for some time, he is the Father of Robotics and basically the man we can both thank and hate for he is as well the father of cybertechnology, simply don’t forget that this robotics scientist and nuclear scholar is also a damned Marine of both the US and UK he served within the 82nd Airborne and fought in the Battle for London. Now what is this man also responsible for well he is one of the first paratroopers, he has brought allot of changes to the world through his creations but before he was the UK’s highest decorated veteran and the US’s highest decorated veteran…..he was a damned Pirate and Wellermen.
Edison here served on the Blue Claw from the start and was one of it’s first crew and quickly became an officer, he would be the ships Chief Harpooner and Boat Master. This means he was the man that commanded the other rowboats as they took to the sea to slay the whale and kept a keen eye out for those that where not pulling there weight. Swanson’s whip was just as dangerous as that of Locker’s and far more feared as he would not tolerate slackers and any sailor not pulling their weight on a hunt would be severely lashed. Our contact states that Lord Swanson here would as well take command of the Marines during boarding and lets just say they killed everything on board…..now from what our contact has shown me, I can both understand and respect Edison here or Eddie as he also called. Eddie would risk life and limb to hunt the Undead and Wolves of the Sea as they were called, he would sake slave ships and set the slavers on fire after tying them to the mast.
To call this Wellermen a master swordfighter would be an understatement and I can fully believe that Eddie is a Crystal Dragon, Kingsman, Presidents Men, part of the Royal Assassins and simply an all around bad ass…..he bested our contact numerous times, he sent many of his best men to their final death as the Vampires call it and basically Eddie has been trained in numerous fighting styles not to mention has been part of Dawn Guard. I will have more to report on Eddie here when I get back to update his actual profile on the shadow wiki seeing old Dumpty here left allot out of his resume.
Though according to the creepy SOB Frost Bite Swanson has another deep secret and one that makes him far scarier than ever imaged. and one that puts him on the same level as Montgomery, Charles, Wesley, Bailey, Dover, Reverdy, Rusty, and Wilhuff though more on the level of Wesley and Bailey……I am still waiting on an update from that cold hearted bastard; who is bloody terrified of Eddie here, if a Dragon is scared than I will give Eddie a wide birth and my complete respect.
Sherman Finesilver (Striker): Oh it seems I take a few days off and the damned Demure have chosen to run their mouths….well looks like I need to update the security on this page; well without further interruptions lets talk about the founder of the 67th Storm Riders and the founding father of the Gunner Adepts….well here is Dr. Finesilver aka Striker one man that proves terrifying things come in small packages neatly wrapped up with a bow. This man was the other doctor on the vessel and this made him very important and very well paid as his skills would save countless lives, though that’s not all that this good doctor did on the Blue Claw. He was also the Chief Gunnery Officer and would command the ships many and I mean many cannons and would gladly give any slaver ship or well port city a true cannonade, Striker’s skill as an gunnery officer was unmatched and this man would hold both stations till he retired.
McGowan stats that Strikers precise knowledge of physics and geometry would make him a true terror as he knew how many cannons to fire and how far the Blue Claw could lean before capsizing….McGowan stated that many battles would end simply from hearing Finesilver’s voice give the order to “Fire”, once the cannonade started it simply didn’t stop till the vessel was sunk, city was pounded to dust or the white flag was flown….and even than the enemy would learn that he is as well fully trained and fully mastered the Harpoon style, can fire a musket or pistol with extreme speed and deadly accuracy, would further modify the weapons to be well…….ahead of there time and work alongside Rusty in the development of the sword and gun style that these men where known for.
Did this Storm Rider join boarding parties…….yes he did and he was quite successful as a boarding officer, he was also very successful as a boatman and Boat Master. Whatever you do don’t under estimate Striker as he is a one man army unto himself and someone that I am glad is out there hunting the Undead. He is as well Dawn Guard and has butchered more evil doers than cancer, not to mention bringing an end to McGowan’s slave business either through his cannonades or his swordsmanship, on ship all knew that Finesilver was to be obeyed and respected and offs ship they all knew to stay clear of their doctors wrath. Long before the Hippocratic Oath existed Dr. Finesilver would use his knowledge of anatomy to aid him in battle and wouldn’t think twice about slicing a tendon or ligament with his hidden razor, now McGowan really hates the Wellermen and for damned good reason but it seems that Solomon and Devil as well hate the Wellermen for some reason.
Now Legion and Mary Sue also really hate the Wellermen, I am starting to get tons of reports from all of them about this group and there interactions with them throughout the years. It seems that immortality is simply not something left to the undead, FIP and rebels as even Mary Sue and Legion are recalling accounts with the Wellermen and even one time that the Wellermen or “Dawn Guard” would come to a small village just off the coast and slay everyone and torch the bodies of the slain. Legion states that he was lucky to escape and he would find solace in someone called Dray, he warned of the ones with the sun and the ones that come from the sea. According to Legion while he stayed with Dray he would be lucky enough to avoid the Wellermen and stay among the living, though when at sea he would always keep a vigilant eye out for the Blue Claw……knowing that those Pirates could emerge from the mists at anytime and no ship would ever stand a chance against the combined might of the Cannonades, the Boat Masters, and the Royal Assassins……lets not forget about the Marines and the Masters of the Harpoon, turning their weapon from a polearm to a close quarters weapon in mere seconds; he stated the standard marines were nothing to shack a stick at, but it’s the officers that you ran from…..even the cabin boy.
Oh good, that nosy “reporter” from McGowen seems to have left his desk. What a shameless shill – simply taking his word from one source and never fact checking. Let me fix that…
Here sits Striker, king of the gunner adept. Looks like his beginnings as a gunner started with a barbed hook and a large, defenseless animal in front of him. They may complain about how dangerous this profession was, but like all wild animals they were only attacked because they shot first! If you leave whales alone they don’t attack! This hocus pocus about sword and gun or harpoon style is stupid, they simply shot and killed many. Attacked your ships? Sour grapes buddy – better spent on creating wine than whining. This man is the founder of the 67th storm riders and it is no surprise that his not so humble beginnings were hunting gentle giants and not so gentle slavers. We in the demure abhor slavery, so no sympathy here. I hate these assholes, but even I have to side with that part of their business. As far as the paranormal crap – get a life. I read that other page with the “proof” of vampires… Don’t let salty sea dog tales fool you. The only thing undead is what is alive, except for whatever is in the Caribbean. Not going anywhere near that shit. Just remember, these guys are land lovers now. Still dangerous, but this part of their past is gone. Get over it.
Bailey Georgetown (Pillsbury): The master general, the one man to rise to the rank of general not once but twice is a Wellermen….well I shouldn’t be surprised really as he is Monty’s closest friend next to Wesley, so when Archibald retired a new forth mate was needed and who better than your right hand man. Instead of promoting a fellow sailor he simply brought Bailey onboard and well this would be when McGowan’s nightmare would be complete, Bailey here has zero fear and zero remorse as he is a true military commander and understands that in order to win battles and wars men musty die.
Now if Bailey was simply a Wellermen and Monty’s little bitch boy than I would end the write up here, nope Bailey is far more than that he commands something called T.E.D has all of our contacts terrified and is something called a Wasteland Outlaw…..whatever that is, though he is a Colonial Marine and well from what I have scene they have some very nasty toys and a combat style that is unmatched. It seems that many on the Blue Claw are either Colonial Marines or trained in there fighting styles and highly skilled in there equipment. Once Bailey came aboard the boarding parties and defense teams became top notch and something to fear, this man was very hands on with the men and was a hell of a disciplinarian as he would push his men to the brink of collapse and than push harder with the ultimate threat of becoming shark food if they slacked off or finding themselves on the business end of his chain whip.
McGowan stated that once Bailey joined the crew he simply tried to avoid the Wellermen instead of attempting to defend the attack, he tried to run away and would even abandon ship if retreat was impossible. Mary Sue states that Bailey like Wesley are a force to be feared and destroyed as if allowed to live they will be the end of the human race, stating that these hunters are not fighting for the sake of humanity and to free slaves, but to further the agenda of the Wilhuff Palpatine and fully enslave us all. Now I am not sure if I believe that part seeing from what I learned about Mary Sue, Legion, Solomon, Devil, McGowan, Salazar and someone called the Economist is not nice and maybe I shouldn’t be concerned about them and simply concerned about the clash of the ancients that is more likely to destroy us all.
So basically Bailey is a master officer, master weapons master and someone that can see the battle differently, he has multiple tactile computers and is a fully trained hunter that seems to give to shits about his own personal health and will thrust himself into very dangerous situations without a second thought. He wields micro rocket launchers on his wrist, as a hooked chain that launches from his wrist like Edison, and Wesley and is basically bulletproof so don’t try shooting him. He is fully trained with the Harpoon style and has mastered both land and sea…..and from reports from Nantucket he is willing to engage aircraft alone….this man scares me, his eyes are soulless, he just doesn’t seem human and someone that would rather slice my throat than deal with me…not to mention he is Dawn Guard and a Royal Assassin so one word when dealing with Bailey “AVOID!!!”.
