Twilight of an Age
Knifebeard is the current Pirate King. He’s not too sure how he became Pirate King but he’s willing to roll with it
even though he’s pretty sure that the previous Pirate King, Ned the Black, is still around. Okay, he’s pretty sure that Ned’s dead, baby.
Knifebeard, whose beard contains relatively few actual knives, isn’t exactly stupid though he is both coarse and blunt as well as poorly educated. He employs what some would consider “lateral tactics” or “asymmetric warfare” but which he refers to as “HA-HA! SURPRISE!”
