Sea Raven

Sea Raven

Genre: Fantasy
Rating: R – Violence and Naughties!
Mood: Think; Pirates of the Caribbean.

Plot Breakdown:
The Sea Raven, a hauntingly beautiful ocean vessel, has been the most romanticized ship to sail the seas. This might be due to the very un-pirate like behavior by it’s Captain and crew for at least three generations. Thwarting scourges of the ocean, stealing treasure from unworthy hands, annoying the Royal Navy, and most notoriously rescuing of pretty damsels in distress. Despite heroic tales of their exploits, their operations are still “less than legal”, always leaving the crew of the Sea Raven needing to keep one step ahead of their enemies.

…until girls get involved, then all hell breaks loose.

Be you crew or foe, when the Sea Raven is involved, it’s going to be an adventure!

SUBPLOTTIES

Captain is a pirate, sailing the seas ambushing ships, stealing cargo, smuggling and other most illegal things! His only weakness is the lovely Lady, the Lord’s daughter… They both had the most brilliant plan of staging her kidnapping and them both running away before Lady was wed to the Duke… but they didn’t plan on the Captain’s crew botching the whole thing and kidnapping the wrong women, Duke’s sister the Duchess! Now Captain are on the run from a band of Duke’s men that want the Duchess returned, as well as trying to get back to Lady who is soon to be wed to the Duke!

On the ship of the Sea Raven, Duchess pretty much annoys the living daylights out of everyone. Unfortunately, they can’t take her back because the Lord has ordered an entire navel fleet after the Sea Raven. To go back means suicide! To top it all off, the Sea Raven’s most notorious rival The EVILPIRATES is also chasing the crew for vengeful purposes.

Meanwhile, after a botched kidnapping, Delilah Red and BLARGH(one of the male members of the crew) are stuck as a captives of Duke. (Those stupid lackeys took off with the wrong woman and left them behind!) Duke has decided to captain a ship and save his sister Duchess from blood thirsty pirates, while Lady stows away disguised as a cabin boy to keep tabs and protect her love!

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History:
Born as the only daughter and heir to Earl Albus Kingston IV, a well-standing man who was very fond of his rules and traditions. His wife was a tad more flexible, but after her death while Delilah was still young, he made sure to enforce everything to a smothering degree. Delilah was always naturally a free spirit, so when she discovered her father had her betrothed to some stranger she never met – she took off. Uncle Marcus told her enough stories, she was able to track the man down. She showed up demanding that Marcus let her be crew. She’s worked hard from being a cabin girl up to being First Mate simply be determination and wit. Delilah has no desire to be Captain, she’s content being on crew and sailing the seas.

Present Life: It’s been just over five years with the Sea Raven. Delilah has taken to this life well.

Special Historic Notes:
– Ditched an Engagement.
– Joined up with her Uncle Marcus on the Sea Raven.

Character Name: Collete Craven
Gender: Female
Job/Role: Navigator & Captain
Age: Young 30s?

General Appearance: Collete sports a toned body after years of sea-faring labor. She is lean and well sculpted with sun bronzed skin, pitch black hair and dark brown eyes. She doesn’t bother to wear clothing to make her stand out, and is happy as long as she can move and work without it being an inconvenience.
Current Goal/Purpose: Lacking any long term goals, Collete lives life one day at a time. Making money is always good, so is staying alive.
General Personality: Collete is strong, stoic, confident. Had she been a man she would have been a great success in the world, widely respected for her gusto and commanding nature. But since she’s a woman, she’s considered a bitch. The ice queen. A conniving seductive scorpion who pulls you in and gives a fatal sting. Collete does not make friends or allies easily. Her honor and integrity are greatly important to her, and despite her less than legal habits, Collete still holds herself to a strict code of virtue. Never betray a friend. Do not harm the innocent. Too bad for the world, there are few she finds innocent or a friend. As a rule she keeps people at arm’s length – not because she is afraid of being hurt, but because she finds most people beneath her. To Collete, the human race in general is filled with stupid weak people. If you can’t run with the big dogs, you need to stay home. And Collete considers herself a big dog. On the rare occasions that Collete connects with someone on a real level, she is fiercely loyal. To earn Collete’s respect is a very powerful thing.
General History:
Just another poor homeless child in the cold cruel world. Collete’s family weren’t any better than other street scum. Her mother was a opium addicted whore, and her father was – well, Collete has no idea who that could be. At a painfully young age Collete discovered that her mother’s profession was sad existence. Once she realized she was getting old enough to be “recruited”, Collete ran away to see if she could make a life on her own.

Life isn’t easy for a homeless girl on the streets. A lot of people try to take advantage, and Collete learned that you can’t survive unless you get real nasty. Anyone that tried to harm or cheat her was rewarded with a surprise blade in the gullet. Knowing how to spare herself from unsavory types helped greatly as Collete tried many jobs here and there to support herself.

All of these odd jobs eventually led to a life on the sea. Collete found that she took very well to the ocean, and her first experience with sailing was a good one. During her years of sailing with various vessels Collete found herself on the The Harbinger, Navigator for Captain Kessing. She and Kessing had a frivolous affair. Nothing too serious, and she didn’t expect anything more. Kessing was a known flirt.

But when Collete realized she was pregnant… this changed everything. It complicated her feelings about Kessing, about her life, about everything. Collete left the ship without explanation. She knew that Pirates had no business raising kids, and there had to be a better left for the kid. Going back to land, she spent her pregnancy with a family out in the country, claiming to be “the victim of an abusive marriage”. Once her child was born – a son – Collete knew that she could never raise a child the way he needed to be raised. She left a note for the family asking them to care for her son, and not to ever mention his true mother. She left in the night and has since never returned.

It had been two years since she left Kessing’s ship and when she found it again, she discovered that one of the crew members, Godric Scarblade, had mutinied and Kessing was dead along with a vast majority of the former crew. Collete, though itching for a little vengeance, found it futile and joined up with another crew.

Becoming navigator on the Deathrunner under the Captainship of Maria, by coincidence Collete found that Kessing was very much alive… only without any memory of his former life! Deciding he was better of not knowing, Collete never brought their past up, but remained crew on the ship to keep an eye on him.

Meanwhile they discover that Maria was once a slave to Godric Scarblade, and by a little bit of luck and good timing had stolen his ship along with his mutinous crew. When he came seeking Maria for revenge he discovered Collete was on her crew… Collete of whom he very much wanted as his pet ever since he admired her on Kessing’s crew! He also discovered Kessing was still alive… The man he had grown to hate with severe jealousy!

During the escape (and coincidentally stealing some treasure) Maria was shot and killed. Collete became the new captain of the Deathrunner. Now Collete is mixed between keeping Kessing away from Godric, or finally helping him regain his memories and getting some good old fashioned vengeance.
