The Legend

One Unique Thing:
I am the latest incarnation of the legendary pirate Captain Jarxbo.

Icon Relationships:
Prince of Shadows: Positive 1
We’re tight.

Scarlett Empress: Conflicted 1
“Sure I tried to steal from her and she captured my ship and my crew, she’s a fiery lass that’s for sure.” A quintessential love/hate relationship, Jarx considers the assassins she sends after him as flirtations, and she’d surely be in grief if any of them actually succeeded. It’s very complicated.

Titania, Queen of the Fey: Negative 1
This one’s more cut and dry. Legends have it that long ago Jarx stole an elven princess’ heart. Despite the Queen’s expressed disapproval, Jarx was able to steal the princess away from the elven world, and may have played an unwitting part in affecting the Fey Spires. Although the fate of the Elven princess is unknown, anyone calling themselves Captain Jarx inherits the Elf Queen’s wrath for this ancient slight.

Bio:

Pirate Captain Lionel Jarxbo – Who once sailed and smuggled across the seas with the legendary Bullywug Assassin, Kalboo Tatteredsail and his Dragonborn Druid accomplice Therion Khal. He plundered the coast of the Empire for centuries before venturing across the seas to make a new name for himself and eventually graduating to airships!

It’s told Captain Jarx has stolen the loot of empires and the hearts of princesses (and maybe a few princes) as both a daring swashbuckler and darling casanova. However it’s unclear how a seemingly mortal human could be the source of legends for centuries, and there are rumors the moniker of Captain Jarxbo may have passed down among multiple people, or that perhaps he is truly not a human at all!

Unfortunately the good captain is now down on his luck – with his prized ship, The Kraken’s Bastard, seized and his crew captured – he seeks new allies fights to regain his glory and his loot!
