Skull & Shackles
Owlbear Hartshorn is a towering hulk of a man with meaty fists. He has taken to clowning, laughing, and crying out random phrases at the top of his voice. His shaved skin still shows signs of the tarring and feathering the crew gave him as a cruel joke not so long ago.
When he was Mr. Plugg’s “pet,” Owlbear, a simpleminded, hulking brute was usually kept belowdecks on the Wormwood in the middle hold. But Plugg brings him out on special occasions, such as when he wanted someone killed or taught a lesson.
He’s a bit simple, and the rest of the crew enjoyed having a laugh at the poor fellow’s expense. To try to make friends, Hartshorn has taken to clowning, laughing, and crying out random phrases at the top of his voice, as this seems to make people laugh. Owlbear likes to eat live crabs, breaking the shells with his teeth and fingers, and when you met him, his shaved skin still showed signs of the tarring and feathering the crew had given him as a cruel joke not so long before.
