Template:Character Sheet




Captains full name: John Percival Hackworth IV

Age of joining the Navy: 17 years

Current age: 35 years

Rank held in the Squadron: Esquire

Career: Naval Officer

Reason for joining the RN: To place his love of the sea, his abilities in seamanship, and his fondness for artillery into constructive use for the betterment of King and Country and to the confusion of her foes.

Personality and traits: Intensely introspective and studious, Captain Hackworth is often taken as standoffish and uninterested in the more mundane aspects of proper society. A reformed perfectionist, he has come to realize that excessive zeal in the elimination of error is in and of itself a flaw. Often found muttering to himself over some new tactic or maneuver which might be employed to great effect against his foes, he might be mistaken as a doddering academic by those who do not know of his penchant for decisive action. Captain Hackworth is a shrewd judge of character and ability in others and makes it a point to ensure those he sails with are equally motivated to excellence. Always eager to learn, he is never parsimonious with his own knowledge or time and has only the utmost scorn for cowards who shy away from helping those in need.

Captain's quote: He that will not sail till all dangers are over must never put to sea. - Thomas Fuller, 1608-1661

Your captains aims and goals: To serve King and Country with honor, alacrity, and skill. To distinguish himself, his friends, his squadron, and his country in all things nautical and martial. To be a trusted resource at sea and on shore.
