The Boy Who Cried Pirates

The Boy Who Cried Pirates

Developed by Balthazar Black
Background: A folktale started by one cruel parent trying to keep their child in line and passed through generations. It was meant to instill the idea that the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few. However as the arcs have passed, the story has seemingly become more about punishing liars than the needs of the many.
Details: There once was a Cabin Boy named Jimmy who was sent up to the crow's nest to watch out for pirate ships at night. He hated the job, but as any good sailor knows, it is an important job to have. One night Jimmy was so bored atop the crow's nest, that he decided it would be good fun to see everyone running to their stations. That way he wouldn't be alone in a crow's nest in the middle of the night. He rang the warning bell and screamed "Pirates! Pirates!" The crew filed onto the deck, they manned the cannons, readied the sails, and there were no pirates. "They turned as soon as I called!" Jimmy would report to the captain and everyone would groggily return to their cabins for the rest of the night, but Jimmy was satisfied. He thought it great fun. So the next night he did the same thing. He rang the warning bell and and he screamed "Pirates! Pirates!" and everyone came to see what was going on. Once again there was nothing and he assured the captain that the pirates had turned and fled from them. But on the third night, Jimmy did see a pirate ship. He rang the bell, screamed as loud as he could, and no one came to his aid... and their ship was sunk forever.
Regional Specifics: This story originated in Almund but has spread outwards since then.

Visible Mutations/ Marks

Mutations
Defiance: Skin always glows faintly and he is warm to the touch. His is also the center of a field of static electricity so people get shocked touching him on occasion.
Rupturing: Orange etheric cracks spider-web up his arms to his elbows. His eyes and the glowing cracks going down his cheeks glow dark blue.
Transmutation: He has a series of emerald, glowing cracks on his right pectoral.
Marks
Bellinos: His fingernails are always black. The color fades into his fingers.
Celarion: A dim glowing ring surrounds his left forearm.
Palenon: A silver lightning shaped mark about the size of a hand stretching up towards his torso.

Scars

  • Oops, Oops, Ouch: Balthazar Black has twenty scars across his back from a lashing as well as scars on his hands and arms from jagged rocks on Faldrass. There are two scars on the sides of his abdomen from being stabbed and a slash across his back which blends in with the whip scars.
