* EvilCripple: Pew is entirely blind, but still enough of an AxCrazy bastard that the remainder of Flint's crew still lives in fear of him, with only Silver and (possibly) Billy Bones being able to stand up to him. Silver is famously one-legged, but doesn't let that prevent him from organizing mutinies and committing murders.

* EnemyMine Long John spells this out to Jim when Jim's captured by the pirates. Silver knows that Jim is the one who knows where the ship is, and torturing it out of him will satisfy his mutinous crew. However he also knows that the Captain's party ceding the stockade and stores and staying out of their way surely means that they know something he does not and have a plan, while at this point the other pirates are one disappointment from killing Silver too. If they find the treasure then he can ransom Jim, but if things do go bad Jim owes him for his protection and can vouch for him with his friends.
