ye be hearin' me right.

that rascal, the narwal, has stolen me treasure!

we be searchin the seven seas high and low fer me loot.

lemme introduce meself so's we can be proper like.

they call me the pirate vix.

in some parts known as vicious vix

other parts as violent vix

and these parts as vindictive vix

(me mum calls me victoria, bless her soul)

me dagger and green parrot, goliath, are me trusty mates.

me former crew disbanded after our last stop on the tropical island of jamaica.

the pleasures o'fine rum took ahold. and they were lost to me.

arrrrrg, but who could resist jamaican rum and warm nights.

i need a crew to serve aboard The Rusty Dagger.

Jo sent me this narwal, but he's not the one Captain Vix seeks. Gotta keep lookin...


* treasure, loot, booty = books

* note from goliath:


as ye know, dead men tell no tales.

best think thrice before joining me mistress on this journey.

me bein a parrot and in accompaniment of me mistress since birth, i sees aplenty.

her dagger play has gotten her out of many scrapes, but luck seems to also be on her side.

i bid thee warning.

me mistress is after the narwal for more than just the treasure.

somethin' even more precious was stolen.

who knows at what lengths me mistress will travel and do...
