"Wounded"

Lots of symbolism in this one. I injured my back really bad last year and have problems to get well. Now the back went bad again. I was drawing 30 minutes and then the pain came so I had to move around for a while and later I could sit down and continue.

Boatswain Henry the Stench

Boatswain Henry the Stench was one of the clumsier people who was sighted on the seven seas. He was six feet tall and strong as a walrus. The only problem was that as soon as the sail was hoisted or lowered he fell into the sea. Often, his beard was full of fish when the crew manage to pull him up out of the sea again. Confused as Henry was, he forgot to remove the fish from his beard, resulting in an unpleasant stench. And hence the name Henry the Stench.

Captain Shark´s Fin

Captain Shark´s Fin was a real party animal. There was not a single bar in the south sea he had not visited. Not a single bartender that he had not hit on the jaw. He became very violence of rum, and therefore became a very lonely old pirate. It got so bad in the end that his entire crew abandoned him with his ship and all. Only the little ship rat Plagues stayed stubbornly by his side.

Captain Sawtooth

Captain Sawtooth, or Errol who was his real name, was lost in a huge sea battle just west of Gibraltar 1716. His body was never found and he was believed to be killed in the fight. Six years later he was found again, wandering on a remote volcanic beach in the Canary Islands with an octopus on his head. 

According to the tales, Captain Sawtooth talked incoherently that he had been imprisoned under the water in a city called Atlantis. It was in prison he became acquainted with the octopus, or Squiddo as Sawtooth insisted it was named. In a duel against the King of Atlantis, he came across the odd sword, said to be forged by the mighty Poseidon himself. A powerful sword that had magical powers. Sawtooth says himself have wiped out the whole Atlantis with the particular sword in hand.

12 villagers were slain when they made ​​fun of Squiddo in a bar later that night. -Never mock with my friend! he allegedly said.

Sorry about my bad english! :/
