Player Characters

    Melvin "the Grungy" Marcel 
Played by: DrNoPuma
Species: Rat

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.

    Ezekiel Riles 
Played by: Black Mage Anolis
Species: Raccoon

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.


Played by: CustardAndPie
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.

Played by: Kablammin 45
Species: Shape-shifting dragon
A jolly and stout dragon hailing from a village of reptiles called Scale Cove, which he was formerly chief over until an incident caused him to be ousted from the position. He's a very strong dragon with the ability to shapeshift.

Played by: Bluethorn
Debut: Page 40
Species: Lizard
A lizardman who joins the crew after they obtain the first shard of the Legendary Egg. He is on the run from someone at the time.

Played by: shrubBird
Species: Human
A young boy just trying to find his sister.

  • 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

Played by: The Gamechanger
Species: Chest?

A sentient treasure chest.


    Samuel and Samantha 

Played by: AutisticAlivia
Species: Humans

Half-identical twins who have a desire to be pirates.

Non-Player Characters

Played by: Kablammin 45
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.

    Captain Pollock 
Played by: DrNoPuma
Species: Human, presumably
A famed adventurer who lived long ago. He originally found the Legendary Egg on one of his travels and used it for good. But when he got older, he grew afraid that it would fall into the wrong hands, so he went on one last voyage to scatter the pieces around the sea.

    Captain Flamebeard 
Played by: DrNoPuma
Species: Human
A powerful pirate captain whose crew Melvin joined as a kid. Initially coming off as friendly, Flamebeard turned out to be horrible and abusive. Melvin provides most, if not all of the first information about him on page 53.
  • 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.

    Felix Ferguson 
Played by: Kablammin 45
Species: Goblin
Met as an elderly man in Aetate, Felix was the cabin boy on Pollack's ship and was entrusted with one of the Egg Shard pieces until he left it in the Seafaring Bank for safekeeping. He has retired to the isolated and run-down town of Aetate and now serves as the light-house keeper.
