Skull & Shackles
Conchobhar Turlach Shortstone
Conchobhar is a handsome, honey-tongued gnome who wears a foppish purple hat, an eye patch, and a white silk shirt, and carries a dandyish cane. His appearance is that of someone pretending to be a pirate, rather than a true buccaneer. Very interested in self-preservation. Speaks with an affected accent and hits on anything that moves. Rather cowardly in battle.
Conchobhar is also a recently pressganged sailor, and is resigned to his fate, since he always yearned for the sea anyway. Unfortunately, he’s rather ill prepared for it, and often gets seasick, resulting in whippings on the Wormwood. He also fell overboard during a terrible storm, and is forever in the debt of those who saved his life. He seems to have a particular eye for Rosie. After overhearing the group’s plans for mutiny, he cautioned them to wait until they were closer to shore in case the worst should happen. When they finally acted upon he, he joined with them and became a member of the crew of the Verdant Viper.
