Pirates of the Spanish Main: Here thar be Monsters
Josiah "Old Smokey" Roberts
Old, Stubborn, mean, and surrounded by pipe smoke
old…like…old, but surprisingly capable, not feeble, long white curly hair and great big bushy beard and eyebrows. A halo of pipe smoke encircles him as often as he can lay his hands on tobacco
*No one knows just how old he is, was imprisoned from the last smugglers crew that Sir Whitby thought cheated him, likes his rum and tobacco.
