    Name: Vivienne NIghtengale, Goes by V
    Age: 35
    Race: Mermaid
    Appearance: In her human form V stands at 5'10 with a muscular and lean build. Her body has multiple scars along her tanned skin from the many fights she has seen. Her hair is a honey blonde that is cut short to her chin and falls in multiple layers. Her eyes are the color of the stormy sea. She wears one gold hoop earring in her left ear. If you look close enough you can see the gills upon her neck.
    Spoiler: Mermaid form 

    Powers: Enchantment through song (if the person is susceptible), Call upon the winds to help with her sails (Very rare and takes a lot of energy from her)
    Character Flaw(s): Short-Temper and Alcoholic
    Weapons: Cutlass,Axe & Harpoon
    Job on Ship: Captain
    Background: Vivienne was born to the sea by her mother who had a human lover. He was a pirate of course. Her mother had lured the pirates of the ship into the sea, to their watery grave. However one of the pirates caught her eye. The rest of that story is easy to tell from there. Vivienne's childhood was spent in the seas learning to survive among the merpeople. She is excellent scavenger and able to map the seas from above or below.

    When her father use to visit she would climb aboard his ship and take her human form. He was the one who taught her the way of a pirate. She was trained in the sword and how to sail the ship. Her stormy-blue eyes observed how he ran a tight but fair crew. He was harsh when he needed to be, but his crew was loyal because they knew he would take care of them. V's dream was to be just like her father.

    V had to learn the hardway though that most crews were full of men and they looked down on women. Women were supposedly bad luck on a ship. V swore she would prove them wrong. After many years sailing with her father she honed her skills of swordsmanship, trickery, and how to enchant others with her voice. Her voice even allowed her to call upon the wind and gain favor for faster sailing as the ship raced across the sea. Over the years her figure hardened with muscles and her skin became a tallymark of her close calls with death.

    One day her father was killed during a sea battle with another ship. Their ship was ruined and about to sink. For revenege V called upon the crew and they overtook the other ship. They killed any of the remaining crew and threw them overboard. V decapitated the head of the rival captain and mounted it on a spike, to show her and her crew were not meant to be messed with.

    V renamed the ship the Siren's Song and now sails the seas for glory, adventure, and of course treasure. It was hard dealing with her father's death though, so she took up a drinking habit. She is also one to mask her emotions with humor or bury them deep down. This causes her to explode every now an again with a raging temper. Depsite all of that she has been a successful Captain managing her own crew. Over the years many have come and gone. She is not picky with her crew. She will take on any species and any gender. Stereotypes and superstitions do not bother her.

    Name: Dragon
    Age: Unknown
    Race: Dragon
    Spoiler: Appearance 

    Powers: Flight and flame
    Character Flaw(s): A child. Speaks only a few words. Dislikes small space, but loves sleeping on top of open chests of gold.
    Weapons: Knife in her human form.
    Job on Ship: Mascot? Cabin Girl?
    Background: The others grew so much swifter than she did. Her mother smoked for the longest time, then in the middle of the night, picked her up in her mightly claws and flew into the sky. She cried out, but all she could hear was the mighty beat of her mother's wings.

    She was fast asleep when her mother dropped her.

    She woke up floundering in a pond, no sign of her mother. She was cold and wet when she crawled to shore - and caught sight of a distant flicker of flame. Mother!

    Except, it was not her mother's flame - it was a campfire, with a strange creature sleeping beside it. She curled up next to the fire and studied it intently before falling asleep herself. When the monk woke in the morning, he found a naked red-skinned girl with white hair lying next to the embers of the fire.

    The first village he reached refused to accept her, calling her a demon child, but he did manage to get a few pieces of clothes for her. After a week of travel, he found a childless couple who were willing to take her in. She seemed happy, but when she noticed the monk was leaving, screamed and tried to follow. They tried to hold her back, but she fought them, wigging out of her clothes and chasing after him.

    In the next village, they had a wooden cell that they popped her into. The monk made his escape, but on the road he heard bells ringing behind him - and that's when he saw the tiny dragon flying towards him. He fell to his knees and covered his face, praying as it landed next to him - but instead of flaming death, he felt tiny arms grabbing hold of him. Looking down, he found the girl, weeping and clinging on to him as tight as she could.

    And he knew now what the girl was.

    He showed her off, they received many fine invites. A prince, seeing her, wanted her for his collection and sent hunters after her, capturing her while she slept in a small cage of iron. He came too close to the bars, however, and her hand, reaching through the bars transformed just enough to slice his cheeks.

    How long he kept her in her cage in the dark place, she didn't know. Aside from food, vistors were rare. When next she saw the young prince, she almost didn't recognize him. He was taller, his hair graying at the temples. He directed men who picked up her cage, and took her down to the sea where a ship waited, and she found herself inside a cargo hold in a damp, smelly world that shifted with the waves.

    There was a battle, then the tarp was uncovered and more men carried her and her cage to the open deck. The cage was opened and she darted out, a half-naked child, snatching a fallen knife and running to the farthest end of the ship, but all there was was water. She leapt off, transforming as she fell and swooped up, but all she could see was water, and the two ships below.

    The crew of the pirate ship found her later, in her human form, curled up in a crow's nest, fast asleep - but still holding onto the knife.

    Name: Aldon "Blackfin" Everrett

    Age: 27

    Race: Sharkfolk

    Spoiler: Appearance 


    Powers: Breathing underwater and bloodrage, which allows him to attack far quicker and more savagely in melee combat after he has tasted blood

    Character Flaws: Savage, even for a pirate. He was kicked off the last two ships he's been on for maiming a crewmate while in his bloodrage. Also known to gamble away his coin and land in hot water, so to speak.

    Weapons: Two cutlasses he duel-wields

    Job on Ship: First Mate

    Background: Born in an underwater cave far from the surface, Blackfin spent his childhood under the waves, playing in the kelp forests of his home. His parents always told him not to go near the docks. "There are men there," they said. "They will kill you and eat you up!" Blackfin, being the rebellious youngster, ventured near the docks and saw the great ships. He saw the bustling market and the brawny sailors carrying cargo to and fro. And he dreamed of being on those docks.

    One moonless night, he saw a ship leaving port. Being quicker than the small galleon, he swam alongside the ship, watching the crew go about their duties by lanternlight. Quietly, he snuck onboard and hid in a dark corner behind some barrels.

    He spent seven nights on that ship, watching the sailors. All the while, he was learning. He subsisted off of rats and stolen dried meats. On the evening of the eighth night, the crew seemed to be in a frenzy. On the horizon, silhouetted by the setting sun, another ship was approaching. This ship was quicker and larger and was nearly upon them when it raised its flag. The skull and crossbones.

    The pirates boarded the ship quickly and attacked savagely. The smell of blood and seawater filled the air. In the violent attack, he was revealed. Both parties looked on him with a mixture of horror and confusion. The pirates made the first attack on him. A particularly brave (or stupid) man made to cut him, but before he could do serious damage, Blackfin dug his jaws into the pirate's belly and came out holding the pirate's intestine in his teeth. The smell of blood might have sharpened his senses, but the taste overrode his brain.

    He attacked quickly and savagely, not discriminating between merchant and pirate. While on the merchant ship he had starved, that night he had feasted. When his body was riddled with exhaustion, his bloodrage finally cooled, causing him to slump down and sleep on the spot, surrounded by blood and body parts.

    When he awoke, he was in the belly of the pirate's ship, his hand and jaws bound by heavy iron bars. After a moment, a towering man came to meet him. He was the captain and wanted to hire Blackfin. The alternative was death, so Blackfin agreed. He was put to work, paid only a margin of what the other men got from any bounty, and was only allowed abovedecks when he was to be thrown onto the other ship to eat.

    After years of this, he finally snapped. The next time his bloodrage was activated, he ignored the merchants and turned straight back to the pirate ship. One flying leap and a whole lot of bites later, he had rid the ship of its captain and half the crew. He was tossed overboard by the remaining pirates, too tired to kill anymore.

    He floated for days before being picked up by another ship, more pirates who had heard of his savagery and also wanted to hire him. They treated him far nicer, but that did not stop their fate either when they turned him on a ship with too little crew for him to eat. Once again, tossed overboard. He abandoned the sailing life for a while, before joining up with the crew of The Siren's Song and Captain V. He's been working with them for years now, gaining more control over his bloodrage.

    Name: Lola Fox
    Age: 25
    Race: Elf
    Appearance: https://cache.desktopnexus.com/thumb...gthumbnail.jpg (Not entirely sure if the link will work)
    She has mid-length black hair and blue eyes. Standing a 5'5, she has an athletic build and slightly tanned skin. Her ears are pierced with a chain holding a diamond, a gift from her father. She also has a metal foot extending from her ankle down.
    Powers: Can manipulate light
    Character Flaw(s): Overconfident
    Weapons: A bow and arrow for long ranged attacking and a rapier for short ranged
    Job on Ship: Crew
    Background: She grew up in a merchant town, born to a wealthy merchant and his wife. Her mother died in childbirth, leaving her father to raise her alone. She basically grew up on boats, traveling with her father and his crew.

    By the time she was thirteen, had become one of the members of the crew on her fathers ship. She had become skilled at adjusting the sails and scrubbing the deck as needed. Although she had enough navigational skill to captain her own ship, she didn't like the idea of taking charge. She was perfectly fine with her place on the crew.

    Everything was going completely fine until pirates attacked her fathers ship, killing him and over half the crew and leaving the others half dead. She doesn't recall how many days she laid on the ships deck, her foot bleeding and growing infectious. By the time someone found them, they could do nothing to save it. They amputated the foot and replaced it with a metal one.

    By the time she had healed, she promised herself that she would find the pirates who killed her father and do the same to them. She went aroud from ship to ship for a while before deciding to join the crew of The Siren's Song in hopes of finding the other ship more quickly.
