Nill Offrill is a competent seaman but that is not why he crews on the Black Pearl. Being the superstitious sort, Jack Sparrow thinks Nill brings him good luck, so he sails wherever Jack goes. They forged a friendship in a British debtor's prison where, due to Nill's luck ( or so Sparrow thinks ) they broke out with ease. Nill however has a bit of a problem; gambling. It's always getting him into trouble because he is neither good nor lucky at his chosen hobby. Now, Offrill has got outstanding debts all over Tortuga. He owes everyone from Doctor Grogan to Karbay Benedek.
