May I introduce you to Gilbert Ratface?
Gilbert was working hard for his family in the past.
Many harbors. Many Ships.
Sailing for years.
Living under ropes and masts- but also -sometimes- he entered foreign lands.
One day, a dark shadow was over cast his life. A covey of Brandelflys.
Plenty of them.
Gilbert survived, but the price was higher than expected.
His once brown, wheather tanned skin turns pale, he lost his hair, getting scraggier every day. His eye was nothing more then a useless stinking, rotten hole.
Going home now was inconceivable.
Unthinkable to live among people.
So it came, that Leychenflegg became Gilberts only friend.
