Captain Merci is a Gravehoof Porc Buccaneer who is captain of the Bocoe, portrayed by Coestar during The Jewel of the Dingo Isles campaign.

Characteristics

Appearance

Merci is a male Porc with a muscular figure, blue beady eyes, yellow tusks and brown mutton chops and goatee. He wears a sleeveless button up white shirt, blue pants, a loose fitting brown belt with a golden buckle, and a black pirate hat with a large blue feather from an unknown creature on it. Most notably, Merci wears the skin of his former Captain as a cape as a show of power. Merci carries around with him a large black anchor (presumably made out of cast iron) with a golden chain and a small lantern with a fire sprite living inside, created from his own blood.

Personality

Merci is a natural born leader who demands respect and admiration from his crew, especially using his fantastic mutton chops and Porc Skin Armor. He is very straightforward and always trying to think ahead, and tries to get his crew through thick and thin without a hitch. He always stays calm and collected and never lets the situation get to his head in the heat of battle. However, he does show some favoritism towards the Porcs of his group over the Kobolds.


Relationships

By wearing the skin of a dead Porc, Merci strikes fear and awe into his crewmates. He is seen as a figure of respect by both the Porcs and kobolds alike.

History

Background

Like all Porcs, Merci was once a simple pig that enter a pit of mysterious purple liquid and emerged as a Porc. He later became a pirate unlike many Porcs who live in packs in caves.

At some point during his career as a pirate, Merci murdered the original captain of the Bocoe. Merci fashioned the former captain's skin into a set of armor that he uses to further intimidate his crew. After getting to know McCoy, they eventually got over the hurdle of his armor creating a bond. This leads to Merci promoting McCoy to First Mate.

The Jewel of the Dingo Isles

After receiving a map from Nisovin, he leads off on an adventure to the Dingo Isles to retrieve a gem. He shoves off right away and sleeps for the first 13 days of the journey. His ship suffers some heavy damage during a fight with the Behemoth. He is almost dragged to a watery death by one of its tentacles, while a crew member, Jakelad, betrays the crew and is killed. He starts to feel the heat when on the Isles in a temple, trying to rescue puppies from the flames of a room-sized grill. The stress and flames prove to be a little too much, as he struggles to get his crew to follow his orders and get anything coordinated done. At this moment, he loses some of his authority to the possibility of the puppies dying, or of the crew being trapped in a grill.

After escaping the grill of death, Merci sends McCoy to retrieve the gem while he hangs back with the rest of the crew. Afterwards, he leaves with his crew, and one can assume that they give the gem to Nisovin and determine its worth.

The New Crew

Merci returns to Nisovin, and then begins to find new crew members.

Fate

Merci is captured by the Sunswords on Laeyuleaugh after failing to jump on Cain's back as he charged out of the Sunsword Manor. He, along with most of his crew, are arrested and sent to the Silvermine Mountains.

Trivia

  • Continuing on with Coe's theme of words in foreign languages, merci means thank you in french.
  • Kinney Boots and Captain Merci are implied to have a sexual affair. Kinney's coat was in Merci's room while he was "sleeping" for 13 days. This is further suggested by Kinney's enthusiasm over being Buckle Buddies with Merci.
