((Here's my character. I'm going to try my best to speak as in the time period, but I can't garuntee that I'm going to be absolutely perfect. I'm going to add a bit more information, that is if you don't mind.))
Name: John Smith
Age: nearest late twenties, he doesn't remember the exact age
Nationality: (not quite sure what you mean by this) Welsh (they had Welsh back then, correct?)
Occupation: Smuggler (do you count this as pirate?)
Occupation Description: A Smuggler is exactly what it sounds like; one who smuggles illegal goods past the British armies. They also sell the items to buyers who are willing to pay a handsome price for them.
Appearance: very tall, easily six feet, if not more. Has shaggy, jet black hair that ends at his ears, but is shaved entirely in the back. His skin is just a shade darker than pale, and his eyes are a mixture of a chocolate brown and a light hazel. He has a squarely cut jaw and a narrow face, along with one gold-encased tooth and the pinky on his right hand missing. He has two golden rings on his thumb and forefinger of his left hand, and had a tatoo of a rope circling his neck, indicating handing, for once he survived it long enough to be cut down by a fellow Smuggler. He's very slender, but some muscles buldge in his arms and calves.
Usual Attire: a gray 1740's greatcoat, a thin white shirt, black trousers, and a dark brown, pirate style hat.
Usual Weaponry: rapier and scabbard, tucked away by his side. He also carries a revolver, and a small blade tucked beneath his arm for needed protection.
Bit 'o History: John was originally brought up to heir a large estate just beyond Port Royale. Nearest the age of fifteen, his family was found by a group of Smugglers. They offered the family goods in return for "nothing". When his parents were foolish enough to believe this, they snatched John away in the night and brought him up with tooth and claw. Because of this, he is violent and doesn't trust people easily.
Personality: charming, violent, un-trusting, dark, mysterious, sarcastic (as all my characters are).2/20/2011 #3 Report
That's pretty impressive. Don't worry if you aren't perfect when it comes to speaking in the time period, i'm not perfect at it either and i'm bound to make mistakes. But your character sounds great.2/20/2011 #4 Report

A bit o history- Everett was born in London, and at the age of seven, he was kidnapped by a pirate crew and brought to Tortuga, where he was raised from then on. He was a natural at most things they taught him, and at 19 set out to become a pirate. When he managed to secure his first job, he caused an accident that caused the ship to sink, the only survivors being he and the captain, who henceforth swore to avenge his ship and crew. From then on, Everett took jobs, and left them, and took more jobs, and he recently acquired a ship of his own, in a drunken gamble.4/21/2012 #21 Report
Can I have Barbossa and Angelica?
Name: Coraliss "Chess" Smythe
Ethnicity/Species/Origin: She's a half Russian, half Hispanic.
Physical Description: deep, emerald green eyes that seem to have something mysterious in them, wildfire red hair that falls down to her hips in insane curls (think like Natasha Romanoff in Ironman) and wears pants, a billowy white shirt, boots, and her hair down. She looks a little like a pirate, and has the smirk of one.She can be all fussy with her hair and clothes and look all fancy when she wants to, but usually chooses not to. Usually has red lipstick and black eyeliner on. Multiple brands up her arms, a few tattoos, one of a dragon across her back, another of ivy wrapping around her arm, a P brand.
Personality: In a word, she is outspoken. She doesn't cry a lot and has this idea that unless she trusts the person and they trust her, tears are a sign of weakness. She squeals when she's excited, and is a force to fear when she's angry. She's really good at getting revenge. She insults and pulls down people who she knows can take it, and takes others under her protection if they can't. And when she protects someone, they are protected. She's usually funny, protective, happy, and teases people a lot. She is really stubborn, hardworking, and has her own outlook on life, which is basically "Life sucks. Live it." She's a bit of a tomboy, but she's okay with her girly side. Most of the time. She's very sarcastic, but also is empathetic, though she doesn't show that side of her to most people. Confident, independent, and very loyal/loving. To some, she's the obnoxious outspoken girl. To others, she's an annoying pirate who needs to be taken down. To the rest, she's a friend. She can be very, very insensitive at times. Doesn't rely on others to do things for her. However, beneath all of her obnoxiousness and attitude and protectiveness, she's very wounded inside. She's been through a lot, and isn't sure who to trust. One more thing-she is a bit of an insomniac. She's very bad at getting to sleep, and if she's not in bed, she's up on the rooftops. She's extremely cold when she needs to, has no qualms about killing.
Backstory: She really doesn't like to talk about it. Basically, she used to work as a maid for this one place. Then, she was kidnapped when pirates ransacked her home. She was taken captive and you name it, it probably happened to her on that ship. Eventually, she engaged in voodoo magic and killed them all. She took over the ship, crashed it, and went to live with Calypso/Tia. She taught her, and Chess learned.
Weapons: Voodoo magic, knives, swords.
Strengths/Weaknesses: She's a very good fighter, a very good liar, very good at voodoo magic and getting people to listen. She's a little overconfident, very stubborn, and has a grand total of one opinion about a person
