Sage's Skulls and Shackles
Ambrose "Fishguts" Kroop
Ambrose Kroop is the often drunk cook of the ship Wormwood, kept on as, at least when sober, he is a very good cook. When he’s not sober… well, there’s several reasons why they call him Fishguts.
Kroop is a large, some would say fat, man, weighing well over 200 pounds and standing only 5 feet tall. He exudes an air of neglect, perhaps even despair, from the bushy tufts of black hair behind his ears, to his rotting teeth, to the stains on his filthy apron. He walks with a wallowing waddle, particularly when drunk, but is capable of surprising acts of strength. Kroop talks with
a thick Shackles accent, which some people find hard to follow. He’s had so many lashes that his back is like tanned leather, and he claims to not even feel the bite of the lash anymore.
