The Berkeleyan Skull & Shackles
Ambrose “Fishguts” Kroop
Ship's Cook. Always drunk, sometimes sensible.
Shared old salt stories with Davey. Thinks this ship is poison!
“It’s poison, this ship, but don’t let anyone hear you say it aloud. The hull listens, see, and the cap’n hears it all. Poison the Wormwood is, though, rotten to the core. You’ll not meet a more nasty, sour piece of work than Cap’n Harrigan in all your days at sea, and his crew’s the same, ’specially the first mate, Mr. Plugg. Vicious little sod, he is. He’d take his own mother’s liver to the butcher to make pies with, he would. But they leave me alone, mostly. They know I can’t ’arm ’em.”
Used to work at the Lobsters Armor, and was a prize winner at eating competitions.
