Skull and Shackles
Boatswain and master-at-arms
Master Scourge is the Wormwood’s boatswain and master-at-arms. As boatswain, he is in charge of all activities and sailors on deck, and as master-at-arms, he is responsible for discipline. Master Scourge is a sneering man with a braided beard and a mouth full of gold teeth. His body is tall and thin, and even his long coat and heavy boots fail to give any impression of strength or bulk.
Master Scourge is a cruel man who doesn’t hesitate to make life difficult for you. In particular, he took an immediate dislike of Sugriva, and clearly goes out of his way to make life difficult for the monkey-person. More than once, Sugriva has gotten whipped for not fulfilling his duties after being absolutely certain that he had done so. Clearly someone has been sabotaging him, but it’s never been apparent who.
