It's 1719 in the West Indies. The Caribbean Sea is boiling in the war and there is no quiet place ashore or at sea. Besides the political turmoil which leads the colonies at each other's throats, pirates and privateers are on the prowl. Come spend some time with us BEFORE THE MAST, on any ship you like!

The highly professional pirate doctor, with us since May 2011, has been the most active character of 1719, with about 350 posts. She is a complex and well researched character, written by an active, faithful and enthusiastic writer, full of initiative and imagination.

Taking into account that the writer’s mother tongue is not English, even more deserved congratulations!

General appearance: A tall and a bit bearlike man with graying black hair and warm, dark brown eyes. He has many scars and limps a bit, hinting he had seen a lo of battles in his life. Wears a beard.

Personality: A nice man, acts as a team dad for the sailors. He's wise and good-mannered, even officers value him for his experience.

History: Volunteered in the Navy when he was 14, mainly for wish of adventure. He read too many books as a boy. He still likes his profession and refused to be made petty officer many times - he's fine with what he is, doesn't want to be a hater authoritative figure.

Unlike most sailors he can read and he does. Knows the Bible very well and can find a quote to almost any situation.
