Everglade Jade aka "Jade In The Shade"
Born – 1647 – Somewhere in the Caribbean
Weapon Of Choice – Bottle Opener
Everglade Jade is the last known surviving member of Captain Henry Morgan’s crew. It is unknown how she made her way to be part of the Pirate Crew, but she proved herself a very valuable asset. She was able to smuggle the recipe of Spiced Rum back to the Pirate Ship, before the British could take it for themselves. Legend says, she fought off 15 men with just a bottle of Spiced Rum, a corkscrew, and a bottle opener. So when you’re aboard the Pirate Ship Pieces of Eight, you’ll find Everglade Jade in the Shade in the Galley mixing a Pirate’s Punch or Rum Runner. Just beware when she has a bottle or two in her hand.

So Ty became a pirate. Much to his surprise, he realized that this was his glorious purpose. The pirate ship is home for him, and he truly loves what he does.
Six Bottle Bonnie
Six Bottle Bonnie comes to us from the Great Lakes. Bonnie led a rather ordinary life outside of Detroit, until the tragic death of her Viking husband, Erik. Soon after, she was introduced to the pirate life. She joined the crew of the Crystal and began smuggling rum. Rumor has it that one time during shore leave she drank six bottles of rum before passing out, earning her the name Six Bottle Bonnie.
A few years after becoming a widow, Bonnie met a young lad who lived in Florida. He wooed her away from Michigan, and they married a year later. Bonnie couldn’t leave the pirate life behind, so she joined the crew of the Pieces of Eight. She can often be found behind the bar serving rum, and is now known as the fastest bottle in SW Florida.
