Heart of Oak
Billy 'Old Billy' Quid
Stoop shouldered and frail looking
Stoop shouldered and frail looking he hobbles and shuffles. His walk is most peculiar, giving him the appearance of a bird walking on broken feet.
20 years ago Billy was the First Officer aboard a privateer, The Falcon, that prowled the Main. The ship was torn to pieces and sunk in a fierce hurricane and Billy was the lone survivor. He was picked up by a Spanish warship and sold into slavery. Sold to Don Diego Ferdinand Guzman, he tried to escape numerous times. On the third time after being caught he was tortured by a Jesuit from the Inquisitor General’s Office, his legs broken so that he could not attempt to escape again.
