Bio:

“His dad beat him, but his mother hit harder”
that about summarizes Mister Irish’s childhood.

His uncle Shamus was a famous brawler and great fighter and he taught Mister Irish everything he knows.

The man known only as “Mister Irish”, to those hiring him, “Irish” to those drinking with him and plain “Mister” to anyone owing him respect, is a man who’s good at two things, fighting and proving that in his hands ANYTHING is a weapon.

Faced with poverty in Ireland and being treated like a common thug in England, both he and Shamus decided to make their way to the Spanish Main, being chased down by local sheriffs for questioning in the murder of a young lord who had been bit too familiar with his young cousin had ALMOST nothing to do with it.

Shamus and Irish made their way to the Spanish Main where they quickly made a name for themselves as mercenaries for hire. Between the two of them there wasn’t a weapon they couldn’t handle. It seemed that Shamus and Irish were going to have one heck of a very profitable relationship, that is until they found the wreckage of a ship. Being the profitable rats that they were, both Irish and Shamus looked through everything and found a little girl hidden away amongst the rats in the pantry. Shamus told Irish to leave her behind, Irish disagreed and after a fight in which both men were left with a few less teeth and more than a few bruised ribs, and definitely pissing blood for a week afterwards, Shamus went his way and Irish with his newly found “Mouse” went his own.

The two haven’t spoken since. Mister Irish raised Mouse to be his little stitcher and knitter, she’s good with a needle and even better at sewing Irish up after a fight. Mister Irish found himself working for some Spaniards when their ship was attacked by The Raven. Being the working man of his word, Irish fought them off and defended the Spaniards until there was a bit of a standoff between himself and the pirates.

The Captain of the other ship tied up and shot the Captain of the San Miguel and then turned to the crew and offered them a chance to sail with her, she spoke with the Irish and asked how much he was being paid, and when he told her she offered to double it, Irish gave her one condition though, that she house Mouse in her quarters, away from the crew, and he’d come work for her. She agreed and Mister Irish didn’t think twice, he packed up his weapons and joined the pirates, leaving his former Spaniard “compatriots” (all of them right cunts) to be done off by his new employers.

Mister Irish has been enjoying pirating ever since. Frankly he only ever really likes fighting, a good plan is one in which he gets to crack some skulls, and get some drink afterward.
