Found stranded, stark naked and painted like a skeleton on a lonely beach at the bottom of a cliff off the coast of Africa by the crew of The Pride of Bedlam, "Bones" is a Shantyman by trade. However, the position of Surgeon was the only one available so he accepted and took on his new duties with incredible enthusiasm. Although the ship occasionally runs low on crew members, there never seems to be a shortage of meat.
From his travels in Africa, of which he speaks elusively, "Bones" claims to have been trained in the arts of Voodoo, Shamanism and Witchdoctoring and has developed several recipes for meat that will leave one drooling and begging for more.
Although a crew member of the Pride O' Bedlam, Master "Bones" has many private ventures and spends but a portion of his time with that crew, and after many run-ins with the authorities while on his own in several countries "Bones" sought respite on a solitary and unapproachable island with submerged rocks and reef surrounding it making it near impossible to reach.
