Me & My PersonalityBorn and raised in the city of Blackpool, from the Lancaster region of England Rash, don’t like taking order from inept captains, sometime belligerent, but extremely good at my job. I often get into arguments with my superiors over poor planning. This explains why I didn’t get promoted because of my attitude and why I moved from shipping region to region. The crew loves me because I fight for them and treat them fairly, which was a rarity on many of the ships I’ve served on. I really detest people using their position to hurt others. Loving and caring attitude towards my ship. I often treat her as a daughter I never had. Being that I was slow and weak, I was often picked on as a kid and young adult. That was how I came to earn the nickname “Blackeye”. Getting into fights with people but almost always losing. I was never good at fighting but firearms came naturally to me.
Why I joined the Navy
Got in a pistol duel, over a girl(Abigail MacLeod), and killed the son of a prominent politician, Nicolaes Witsen. I went into the navy to escape the blowback even though it was legal. After I left, Nicolaes Witsen decided to take out his anger on my dad and caused many hardships on him. My dad died 7 years later, which I believe was the result of the additional hardships placed on him. Abigail committed suicide after she lost both lovers.
I would like revenge on Nicolaes Witsen for what he put my father, Abigail and myself through, but in the end, I used the Navy to escape. I now have nothing left there anymore so the Navy is my Family and Life. No desire anymore to get married and have a family of my own. I have no desire to rise above the ranks of captain and am not driven by money. I want to live and die on my vessel.
