Real Name: Unknown
Powers: Skilled swordsman, basic command of magic, seemingly invulnerable, above average speed and strength.
Origins: Rumour has it that around 1640 a pirate going by the nickname of Captain Blood, stole cursed aztec gold and hid it somewhere off the coast of Spain. He intended to return for it later, however the curse killed his crew one by one, leaving him the only survivor, with no ship or crew. despondent he threw himself into the sea, miraculously he survived and realised he was now indestructible, another aspect of the curse.
Rather than waste his new found immortality, he set out to make himself the most feared pirate ever, but each time he took a crew they would be lost in mysterious accidents, until eventually he decided to simply remain on land and build an empire of crime.
Eventually he found his way to Opal City, there he believed that the gathering of strange forces, both magical and scientific, may lead to a cure to his curse. To this end he used his now vast wealth to gather mystical artefacts, high tech weapons and alien technology. What he couldn't use to attempt a cure he used to further his criminal empire. All the time denied the chance to return to the sea or everyone around him would die.
Weapons: Normally he wields an ancient cutlass, the only surviving relic from his pirate days. He is also gifted at using magical talismans and alien weapons where they are available.
Weakness: his desire to return to the sea to join his first crew is so all consuming that he will risk loosing his vast fortune and the lives of his henchmen just for the chance to lift his curse. This means that few trust him. His invulnerability seems to be limited to avoiding injury but not pain, meaning that he can be hurt just not killed.
