The player characters and NPCs of We Are All Pirates' Revenge. Please write the entry for your own characters!
The captain of the crew, and GM character of the thread. Melvin is a big and chubby rat with a domino mask. Melvin was a former pirate, working as a ship carpenter for the captain Flamebeard, but was kicked off the ship after a bad incident with the captain. Melvin survived and went to live with his cousin Duane (played by Taco Badger), and the two eventually met some other individuals and formed their own crew...
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: An anthropomorphic rat who wears nothing but a domino mask.
- Alliterative Name: Melvin Marcel.
- Big Fun: Melvin is very chubby, and also one of the most mellow members of the crew.
- The Ditherer: He's not so used to being a captain, and often relies on others, mostly Duane, to help him make decisions.
- Expy: Combined with Composite Character, he is based on three different Redwall villains: Cluny the Scourge (both huge rats who lead groups), Cap'n Tramun Clogg (fat, jolly, and mostly friendly pirate captains) and Slagar the Cruel (both wear decorative masks to cover scars left from an attack by another villain.)
- Gentle Giant: You'd think a bipedal pirate rat over 6 feet tall, and very bulky as well, would be a threat, but Melvin is one of the least threatening members of the crew. In fact, he's very welcoming, especially to those who want to join the crew.
- Malevolent Masked Man: Subverted. He wears a domino mask and used to be a pirate, but has never been very malicious at all.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Duane's Blue Oni. Melvin is more immature and emotional than his cousin, and he ran off to become a pirate while Duane stayed in school.
- Rodents of Unusual Size: Played with. While Melvin is a rat bigger than most humans Word of God is that that's actually the normal size for his family, and Duane (who is much smaller, though not as small as a real rat) is the abnormally sized one.
- Sickly Green Glow: Underneath his mask, Melvin's eyes and scar glow green because of the effects of the gemstone that Flamebeard attacked him with.
An old, proud privateer who stows aboard the ship; initially suspsicious of the crew, but he begins to take a shining to them as he spends time with them.
- Dark and Troubled Past: At a young age, Ezekiel ran away from his mother, something he clearly regrets as he traded his easy life with her for a horrific life on the sea. After twenty years away from her, he comes back only to find out she was killed by a plague that swept through the village.
- The Drag-Along: He only got on the ship to capture Melvin, but he ended up getting captured himself. He gets roped into the adventure when Melvin and Duane threaten to reveal his status as a privateer to the rest of the crew.
- Privateer: It hasn't been disclosed which nation he's contracted to, though.
- Rascally Raccoon: Played with. Despite being a privateer and all that, he's not above doing things like stealing pillows or drinks from his rich friends and lovers.
- Really Gets Around: Mentions a multitude of lovers when introducing himself. Not that he plans to get with anyone on the ship.
- Social Climber: He sees his stint as privateer as this, getting in good with the bourgeoisie with his exploits.
- Super Speed: Implied. He replaces the first piece of the Egg with a pair of underpants with a motion "as fast as a swooping peregrine". Out-of-thread roleplaying shows this extends to his combat abilities as well, able to attempt multiple hits with his blade in the time it would take someone else to try for one.
- They Call Me Mister Tibbs/Insistent Terminology: He insists the crew refer to him as "Ezekiel" despite some (mostly Duane) calling him "Zeke".
- True Neutral: He's aligned with the country he's contracted with, not with the crew. Despite essentially being a sea-cop, he has a rather cavalier relationship with the law when it applies to him.
- Verbal Tic: Tends to accentuate his words as he speaks.
Species: Human (enhanced)
An amnesiac witch who joins the crew with hope that the Egg can help her figure out her past, as well as some adventure.
- Action Girl
- Amnesiac Hero and Laser-Guided Amnesia: Due to losing her memory 2 years prior to the beginning of the thread, she knows absolutely nothing about herself and her past other than her first name. Gabrielle hopes finding the Egg will help her regain her memory.
- She is also prone to Fake Memories, such as falsely remembering Captain Max.
- Body Horror: Her powers can make parts of her (her hands in particular)... do things.
- Cast from Calories
- Cute Witch
- Deadpan Snarker: She certainly has her moments.
- The Determinator: If she's got something she needs to do, she'll do it, even if she's used up most of her energy.
- The two things keeping her going? The Legendary Egg, and adventure.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Doesn't particularly like it when her fellow crew members try to keep her from overexerting herself, insisting that she's fine.
- Expy: Of Eleven from Stranger Things, but only partially.
- Older Than They Look: Although Parada initially mistakes her for a young teenager, she's actually in her mid twenties.
- Only One Name: Her last name is never given. Justified in that she is an amnesiac.
- Psychic Nosebleed: As a result of overexertion from using her powers. She also tends to bleed from her ears if she uses them for even longer.
Species: Shape-shifting dragon
- Big Fun: Overall a rather carefree and relaxed fellow for a fugitive from his village.
- Expy: Was heavily based on Maui from Moana in terms of design and abilities.
- Stout Strength: Is a rather rotund dragon, but still very strong.
- Super Strength: Has this in his base form.
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Gender-inverted; Ira has visible eyelashes although he's a male dragon.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Has this ability, though he typically only uses it when he has to disguise himself.
- Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: His dialogue is written in green text.
- Expy: Inspired by Yooka from Yooka-Laylee, although Victor is not a chameleon.
- Lizard Folk: He's a lizardman in a setting that has many anthropomorphic races.
- Lovable Lizard: Unlike the stereotype normally associated with reptiles, he is a sympathetic character.
- Nervous Wreck: He has a tendency to panic very easily, and occasionally stutters when talking as a result.
- The Baby of the Bunch: He's the youngest member of the crew at eleven years old. While he's not much younger than Parada, he's far less capable in a number of ways.
- Companion Cube: Made a friend out of one of the ship's cannons, which he has affectionately named "Mr. Splooshy," complete with engraving of said name on the barrel.
- Parental Abandonment: Both of his parents died when he was a baby, leaving him only with his big sister.
- Shrinking Violet: Has had trouble in the past opening up to people aside from his sister, though he's trying his best to fix that.
- Shy Finger-Twiddling
A sentient treasure chest.
- Chest Monster: A living treasure chest.
- Deadpan Snarker: Very much loves to do this.
- Epic Flail: How he attacks with his left arm, given that it's a chain with a cannonball at the end.
- It Amused Me: Why he likes messign with people.
- Jerk Ass With A Heart Of Gold: He may be a jerk, but he does have a compassionate side.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Fitting for a living pirate chest with sharp teeth.
- Slasher Smile: More or less his default smile with teeth like those.
- Token Evil Teammate: He's not evil, but he is certainly the most unpleasant of the group due to his jerkish tenancies.
- Troll: He loves messing with people.
Half-identical twins who have a desire to be pirates.
- Half-Identical Twins - Obviously.
Species: Psychic dragon
The current chief over Scale Cove following Ira's exit. In contrast to Ira, she's far more serious and no nonsense. She also has psychic abilities and a daughter named Melody. She and a host of others are in pursuit of Ira in order to prevent him from using the Legendary Egg.
- Anti-Villain: Despite being an antagonist, Cleo doesn't seem to be outright evil; her motivations in trying to stop Ira seeming to be the safety and well-being of Scale Cove rather than a petty rivalry. She also cares deeply for her daughter Melody.
- Big Bad: Is this for Ira's story as she is fit and determined to prevent him from succeeding in his journey.
- Our Dragons Are Different: Cleo's species of dragon has very soft and rubbery skin rather than scales. They defend themselves with their incredible psychic abilities.
Species: Human, presumably
- The Ace: He is described as a very accomplished sailor, and he is also good at setting up puzzles and deathtraps.
- Named After Somebody Famous: Named after Mike Pollock, the voice of Eggman because he's associated with a different egg.
- Posthumous Character: He passed away long ago, but set up the puzzles to protect the Legendary Egg, starting the story.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Flamebeard acted kind to Melvin when he first met him in the tavern, but once Melvin joined the crew, Flamebeard showed his true, cruel colors.
- Captain Colorbeard: Although he's much less friendly than the trope name would imply.
- Evil Sounds Deep: He had a very deep voice, according to Melvin.
- Expy: Word of God is that he's based on Sonic Sat AM's interpretation of the villainous Dr. Robotnik. Like that show's Robotnik, Flamebeard is an imposing man with a metal arm, he's described as having a deep, growly voice (like so), and he's a callous monster.
- The Ghost: He has not appeared in person yet, we only hear about him from Melvin's exposition. Melvin isn't even sure if he's currently still alive.
- Greater-Scope Villain: For Melvin. While there's no real Big Bad threatening him now, Flamebeard's abuse of Melvin was mostly the cause of his more negative aspects, and even now, Melvin is still scared of him.
- Red Right Hand: He's pure evil, and he has a prosthetic metal arm.
- The Sociopath: He fits this pretty well. He acts just charming enough to convince Melvin to join his crew, then loses interest in him, then outright turns on him when he thinks Melvin is trying to steal from him, and attacks him.
- Cool Sword: "Old Silver", a sword that he passes on to Kauri.
- Lighthouse Point: Where he lives now.
- Refusal of the Call: He's invited to go with the party to the bank, but turns the call down, wanting to spend as much time with his friends in Aetate as possible as it's somewhat implied that he is dying.
- Unfazed Everyman: He's only momentarily taken aback by the bizarre crew that comes to visit but nevertheless lets them in anyway.
