Crabpaw Ironvice was the captain of the ship, Ole Sea Dog which was filled with various different types of creatures. He was the captain of mercenaries, offering his large crew to fight for a price. Half of the creatures on the ship were vermin. The vermin had been captured by Crabpaw when he was younger, and he offered them a better life then the greedy warlords would offer, with one exception. Killing of woodlanders was punishable by death, since half of Crabpaw's crew were woodlanders. They sailed the ocean blue, looking for ships in need and offering their services in exchange for gold and food. The crew members of Ole Sea Dog were close-knit, meaning even a vermin of his crew would gladly die to save a woodlander. Crabs liked the way this worked, he was giving the vermin the life they already followed, yet gave them much more plunder and food then the warlords would. He treated everyone equally, and actually ate less then the rest of the crew when supplies were shortened. He didn't care about gold or plunder, that was all for his vermin and some of the woodlanders who enjoyed trinkets. No this mission was not for gold, it was to find the shark HundredTeeth and dispatch of him, like he had almost done to him many years ago
"Belay the gab mateys, put yet backs in it or i'll show ye how me whip feels! Harhar seems like i've got a bunch of dibbun moles rowing! Twenty minutes and food'll be served me matey, Skilly'n'duff'n'hotroot soup for all" Crabpaw's roared out. His crew smiled, they knew that the large sea otter was all talk. He didnt even own a whip!
