Skull & Shackles
Free Captain of the Wormwood
The Wormwood’s captain is a ruthless Mwangi brute with a shaved head and a long goatee bound in rings of gold. Barnabas Harrigan wears sparse leather armor, mostly on his left side and carries a wicked heavy short blade, curved and serrated. Scars and tattoos faintly decorate his exposed skin and an eye patch covers his left eye.
He is most often seen in the company of Peppery Longfarthing, his friend and sailing master, and “Caulky” Tarroon, his cabin girl.
Harrigan is known as the Scourge of the Chelish Navy for his predilection and skill in sinking and plundering ships of that fleet. He publicly derides their attempts to police the free waters of the Shackles.
He is a tyrannical captain who keeps to himself and holds council only with the other officers. Despite that, Kamilah earned some measure of respect from him and Harrigan personally asked Kyoju to build him and his crew a full compliment of firearms.
The Free Captain took a man’s life as wage in a game of dice, left a man who beat him at the same game to starve and decay in a gibbet from the mainmast, and apparently cut out the heart of the captain of the Man’s Promise. He has killed every first mate who has ever served under him when their service was done.
He sent you, under the command of one Mr. Plugg and Master Scourge, as part of a skeleton crew tasked with selling the Man’s Promise.
