|Behind the scenes|
Hendry Cutts was an adventurer in the Caribbean during the first half of the 18th century.
Hendry Cutts came from long line of woodcutters in the English countryside. Bored to the blooming gills, Hendry made his way to the sea in search of adventure. Cutts found work as boatswain and soon found his skills were better suited, and rewarded, on pirate ships. Captain Jack Sparrow took him aboard after a night of ruinous rum consumption in Shanghai. When the crew of the Black Pearl scattered to the four winds Hendry Cutts embarked on a drunken binge in Tortuga and woke up with a hangover...and a wife! While Cutts couldn't remember saying "I do," it was official, and much to his good luck his new wife, Millie, was both beautiful and well connected.
Millie's the younger sister of Scarlett - a woman of questionable repute who was beloved by pirates everywhere. Despite his first impulse to "make good on the arrangement," Millie's incessant chattering drove Cutts to the verge of madness. Even worse, Cutts later learned that Millie only agreed to the marriage after he - in a drunken haze - promised her a priceless necklace that legend says was worn by Mary, Queen of Scots on her wedding day. Scarlet was very protective of Millie and used all of her considerable influence to ensure that Cutts lives up to his end of the bargain. He finally agreed to join the crew again once a nameless pirate collected pearls for a necklace that could pass as the Queen's.
