Sharky, the Bad Guy

I've introduced you to all four of The Deliverers; Eric, Stig, Kate, and Hallo. Now, I'd like to tell you a little about the villian of the book, Captain Burt Sharky.

Sharky leads a band of bloodthirsty pirates. He's been doing that for over three hundred years. How does he live so long? Is he immortal? Have to read the book to find out.

One thing's for sure, he's not a nice guy. The ancestors of the villagers of Calendria were once part of Sharky's crew. They decided to settle down, so they asked Sharky for permission. Sharky decided to let them, provided they did something for him in return. It was agreed, and they had a deal, but Sharky cheated. That's just the way he is.

Ever since then, he's terrorized the village, and the residents have been unable to do anything about it. He's got a strange ring that legend says gives him the ability to see into peoples' minds. And, oh yes, he's got a terrible temper. All his crew are scared of him, except, perhaps, his first mate, Mr. Marrow.

Anyway, he's quite rotten. Perfect for a bad guy. You'll love him, or hate him...

On another note, I've joined the Twitterverse. If you'd like to twit or tweet, or whatever, you can follow me at @GregDeliverers. Thanks.
