The Skinny Pirate
|Behind the scenes|
Not much is known of Nigel's life, but it is known that he would still live in Shipwreck Cove by the mid-1740s. One night, he would join a group of pirates as the Auctioneer led an auction on two wenches, Scarlett and Giselle. Throughout the bid, many of the pirates bidded on Scarlett, referring to her as the "redhead". As soon as Scarlett and Giselle started showing off for bids, Nigel bidded ten pieces of silver for Giselle, referring to her as the "one with the flaxen hair". Nigel later brought his goat into the bid, though Slurry Gibson reminded him that he loved that goat. The bidding ultimately ended with the Marquis D'avis winning the bid with seven hundred and two goats.
There was soon an argument, which ended with a pirate named Mungard firing his pistol accidentally hitting the Pirate Code. The Auctioneer, still holding the Code, fell backwards to the ground. Everyone, including Nigel, stared in shock of what just happened. Nigel and the other pirates whisper among themselves about Mungard shooting the Code. It was then that Mungard ordered the Code to be locked up and warned the crowd of pirates that if any of them spoke a word of what occurred, that he would have their tongues.
Nigel's further fate is unknown.
Behind the scenes
- Nigel was portrayed by Ric Sarabia in Wedlocked.
- In the short film Wedlocked, it was shown that Nigel owned a goat. However, later in the short film, Nigel would claim to have only "borrowed" the goat; though that may have been because Mungard was aiming his pistol at him. Whether Nigel owned that goat or not is shrouded in mystery.
