SUSPECT LIST

CAP’N JACK BLACKSPARROW

English Pirate & Captain of ‘The Black Onyx’
The gentleman Captain Jack Blacksparrow is one of the fiercest fighters on the open sea! Ironically, to evade dangerous situations, this pirate leader avoids physical fights with mere wit and skills of negotiation. This is one loyal and brave cliché-talking captain that would valiantly go down with his ship.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, dark colored vest, brown sash type belt, dark pants, boots and a captain’s hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. A fake parrot sewn to the left shoulder as an optional prop.

LADY ‘OCEAN DRAGON’ SMYTHE
Irish Pirate & First Mate of ‘The Raging Cannon’
Lady Smythe, better known as the Ocean Dragon, is the greedy treasure-seeking lady pirate.  This pretty buccaneer isn’t known to be loyal or trustworthy as she’s infamous for using her skills of manipulation to guide her captain towards trouble… especially if there’s pirate booty involved!  In addition, this lady pirate is infamous for singing eerie pirate songs in times of unrest.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Cream-colored puffy sleeved pirate shirt, dark colored vest, sash type belt, dark pants, boots and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props.

CAP’N BARNACLE BURNTBEARD
Spanish Pirate & Captain of ‘El Lobo Del Mar’
Cap’n Barnacle Burntbeard will stop at nothing to get his hands on his next meal. This Captain’s appetite dictates his mood every second of the day. Just make sure this pirate has something to eat and all will go well on his ship. Rumor has it that this Captain yearns to dance the paso doble and when nobody’s watching, he shakes a tail feather with swabbin’ mops.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Brocade vest with a cream colored puffy sleeved pirate shirt underneath. Long coat, matching captain’s hat with a feather and boots. An eye patch, fake earring, and a fake pirate pistol are optional props

CAP’N PONCY HAWTHORNE
Irish Privateer & Captain of ‘The Raging Cannon’
The charismatic Cap’n Poncy Hawthorne possesses one of the most brilliant minds on the open sea. This buccaneer can repair anything from a parrot’s beak to the ship’s engine! Just stay on her good side, though, because sometimes, too much information can be a dangerous thing!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Lace-up pirate style dress, sash type belt and a matching sash type head band under a captain’s hat. A fake sword as an optional prop. Rhinestone eye patch and a fake parrot sewn to the left shoulder are optional accessories.

JOLLY TURNER
Spanish Pirate & First Mate on ‘El Lobo del Mar’
Jolly Turner is a mild-manned first mate and exceptional swordsman. Most see him as loyal yet naïve. Jolly has a funny quirk - he rhymes his sentences when he speaks. He thinks it gets him into a zone and makes him focus...especially during times of stress. Those around him find it quite hysterical at times.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: White puffy sleeved pirate shirt, black vest, red sash type belt, black pirate pants, boots and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props.

BONNY ANNE BLACKBEARD
Irish Pirate & Helmsman of ‘The Raging Cannon’
A major menace to maritime commerce in the Caribbean, Bonny Anne Blackbeard is the Irish-born Helmsman of ‘The Raging Cannon!’ Nothing goes awry if this buccaneer is navigating through the open waters. However, this is one feisty shipmate that’s no stranger to rebellion. Rumor has it that her father is actually part of the East Indian Trading Company!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Lace-up pirate style dress, sash type belt and a matching sash type head band. A fake sword as an optional prop. Rhinestone eye patch and a fake parrot sewn to the left shoulder of the costume are optional accessories.

Sir Henry Barburosa is the ex-Leader of the Privateers on the open sea. He made his name in the Caribbean as one of the most dangerous and successful privateers and was even knighted by King Charles due to his successful commissioned attack on Jamaican soil! This blood-hungry tyrant, now the owner of the land-lubbin’ Pillagin’ Pirate Tavern, is known to be quite the prankster!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Black puffy sleeved pirate shirt. Red sash with black and white striped pirate puffy knee pants. A black or red bandana tied around the head and a fake pirate earring as a prop. A fake sword or pirate pistol as another optional prop.

GUNPOWDER GRACE DARKWATERS
Irish Pirate & Second Mate on ‘The Raging Cannon’
As a child, Grace Darkwaters took an axe to her long locks because her father claimed she couldn’t sail without her hair being caught in the ship’s ropes! Formally educated and with vast sailing experience from her years on her father’s merchant ship, this second mate deals with her severe anger management issues by making up and performing ‘angry poetry’ when incensed.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Lace-up pirate style dress, sash type belt and a matching sash type head band. A fake sword as an optional prop. Rhinestone eye as an optional accessory.

CALICO JON RACKAM
English Pirate & Third Mate on ‘The Black Onyx’
Calico Jon Rackam is the overly-romantic creator of the notorious Jolly Roger flag. Known for reciting the Pirate Code or romantic poetry whenever needed, this Third Mate’s a tad clumsy especially when at sea - so mind your step on the ship and don’t let this amorous klutz get near you. The way things have been going for Calico Jon lately, he’ll most likely make the sky fall down next!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Brocade vest with a button up pirate-style shirt underneath. A bandana should be tied around the
head and fake pirate earrings as optional props.

MARY ‘THE DAGGER’ REDD
Irish Pirate & Third Mate on ‘The Raging Cannon’
Typically disguised as a male, this lady pirate is the outspoken Third Mate on The Raging Cannon. A force to be reckoned with, Mary ‘The Dagger’ Redd will diffuse any scuffles on her deck by landing the perpetrators flat on their backs with their ears ringing for days. This is one nononsense buccaneer that knows her job and takes complete control of her scene.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Cream-colored puffy sleeved pirate shirt, dark colored vest, sash type belt, dark pants, boots and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props.

MONTBLOG ‘AXE’ HENRY
English Pirate & First Mate on ‘The Yeti O’ T’ Sea’
As an English privateer, Montblog was definitely the least aggressive in the Caribbean Sea!  Rumor has it that Montblog once captured a ship for the sole purpose of seizing the crew's hats...and then apologized to everyone on the way back to his ship! He gave up his captain’s hat after his ship wrecked and now he’s the first mate on the sea’s first co-ed pirate ship. The Yeti O’ T’ Sea pirates are a tight knit crew known for their eccentricities and strong personalities!

DORIS DANGER
Irish Pirate & Second Mate on ‘The Yeti O’ T’ Sea’
This obnoxiously rude and narcissistic lady pirate is the second mate of the first and only co-ed pirate ship, The Yeti O’ T’ Sea.   Rumor has it that she is planning a mutiny against her captain.  The main problem with her plans is that hardly any of the crew can stand to be around her for more than a second…much less would they ever allow her to be captain!  This behind the scenes power struggle might be the reason for her notoriously foul moods!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Cream-colored puffy sleeved pirate shirt, dark colored vest, sash type belt, dark pants, boots and a pirate hat. A fake sword as an optional prop.

DORIS DANGER'S ALLIES

LANCILOT CABONDISH
English Pirate & Helmsman on ‘The Yeti O’ T’ Sea’
First a merchant, then a privateer and now a ruthless pirate of the Caribbean Sea.  Disliked by many due to his cruel ways and blatant disregard of The Pirate Code, Lancilot has got to realize his days are numbered.  If he wasn’t the greatest Helmsman at sea, the captain of The Yeti would have already made this ill-mannered pirate walk the plank, for sure!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Brocade vest with a button up pirate-style shirt underneath. A bandana should be tied around the
head and fake pirate earrings as optional props.

RUNA VIGGO

She was eventually discovered by the lady pirates of The Raging Cannon!  She suffers from an extreme obsessive compulsive disorder but is an excellent look out for The Raging Cannon ship.  Too bad she wasn’t looking out for this ship about 5 years ago when they were attacked by the men of the  El Lobo Del Mar.

DUGAN VARNEY
English Pirate & Look Out on ‘The Yeti O’ T’ Sea’
