Captain Apocalypso's Skull & Shackles
“Still abed with the sun over the yardarm?
On your feet, ye filthy swabs! Get up on deck and report for duty before Cap’n Harrigan flays your flesh into sausage skins and has Fishguts fry ye up for breakfast!”
Master Scourge is the Wormwood’s boatswain and masterat-
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.
