William Bartholomew Wick, a.k.a Wick, was born to be a pirate. Never one to back away from a fight and always had a love for the sea. As a boy, Wick led a group of kids to take over an entire island. It was from that event that Wick was asked to join the crew as the powder monkey. It is his job to clean and load weapons and blow things up. Legend is, he created an explosion so big, he took out an entire armada of ships, depending on who you ask. Because of that explosion, Wick now is perpetually followed by squirrels, which were inhabiting an adjacent island. Wick can usually be found scurrying around in the rigging.
