Mystery on Bluebeard's Pirate Ship

One misty night, the big pirate ship called The Black Cloud accidentally bumped into a large rock because the person steering it, the helmsman, made a mistake. Jolly Flintlocker, one of the pirates, said it would take about eight months to fix their ship.

Not long after their ship got damaged, Cap’n Swashbuckler found out that another pirate, Captain Bluebeard from the ship S.S. Treasure Hunter, was getting bored of sailing and wanted to live on land. Captain Bluebeard decided to set up a big challenge for all the pirate crews who love to search for treasures. He created seven special pirate riddles and said that the first group to solve all of them on his ship could have it – and the famous treasure hidden inside!

Pirate Crew of The Black Cloud:

 

CAPTAIN ‘ONE-EYED WILLY’ SWASHBUCKLER

Captain of the Black Cloud

The gentleman Captain ‘One-Eyed Willy’ is one of the fiercest fighters on the open sea. He has earned the complete trust of his men as a courageous leader of his crew. This is one loyal and brave captain who would valiantly go down with his ship.

Suggested attire: a cream-colored puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, dark-colored vest, brown sash-type belt, dark pants, boots, and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. A fake parrot sewn to the left shoulder of the costume is another optional prop. 

 

JACK BLUEFELLOW

Quartermaster of the Black Cloud

Jack Bluefellow is the greedy treasure-seeking man in charge of the Black Cloud unless there is a battle approaching.  The crew of the Black Cloud doesn’t find this buccaneer as trusting as the Captain, however, as Jack is known to steer the crew towards trouble…especially if there’s booty involved.

Suggested attire: a white puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, black vest, red sash-type belt, black pirate pants, boots, and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. 

 

ROWDY STOUTBEARD

First Mate of the Black Cloud

This shabby first mate will stop at nothing to get his hands on his next meal. Rowdy Stoutbeard’s appetite dictates his mood every second of the day.  Just make sure this pirate has something to eat, and all will go well on his watch.

Suggested attire: black puffy-sleeved pirate shirt. Red sash with black and white striped pirate puffy knee pants.  Black socks and black shoes.  A black or red bandana tied around the head and a fake pirate earring as a prop.  A fake sword or pirate pistol is another optional prop. 

 

JOLLY FLINTLOCKER

The Carpenter of the Black Cloud

The charismatic Jolly Flintlocker has one of the most brilliant minds in the open sea. This buccaneer can repair anything from a parrot’s beak to the ship’s engine! Just stay on Jolly’s good side, though, because sometimes, too much information can be dangerous!

Suggested attire: a cream-colored puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, dark brown vest, orange sash-type belt, dark brown pants, boots, and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. 

 

DRAKE ‘TOP COOK’ BREADBEARD

Buccaneer & Cook on the Black Cloud

Drake Breadbeard belongs in a king’s palace and has exceptional kitchen skills. The crew of the Black Cloud doesn’t realize how lucky they are!  Drake has a funny quirk…he loves to rhyme his words while he speaks. He thinks it gets him into a rhythm and makes him cook better.  Those around him find it quite hysterical at times.

Suggested attire: a long pirate-style jacket with a button-up pirate-style shirt underneath. A bandana should be tied around the head, and fake pirate earrings should be worn as props. 

 

JOHN ‘HYPER BELLY’ REDBEARD

Helmsman of the Black Cloud

John Redbeard is the trusty helmsman of The Black Cloud. Nothing can go awry if this buccaneer navigates through the open waters. However, never distract John Redbeard, or his attention deficit disorder might get him off track and off course!

Suggested attire: a brocade vest with a cream-colored puffy-sleeved pirate shirt underneath, a long coat, a pirate hat with a feather, and boots. An eye patch, fake earrings, and a fake pirate pistol are optional props. 

 

CROWE OLE’ ONE-LEG RAVENHOOK

Buccaneer & Lookout of the Black Cloud

This blood-hungry tyrant is the lookout on The Black Cloud. Known as a prankster, this buccaneer has made his way to the plank a few times in his pirating career but always mysteriously manages to find his way back to the ship—unharmed!

Suggested attire: a cream-colored puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, black vest, green sash-type belt, long black pants, boots, and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. 

 

WALKER D. PLANK

Second Mate of the Black Cloud

Walker D. Plank is not your typical pirate! This Second Mate would rather be cuttin’ a rug than plundering. If music can be heard, this pirate will show off some highly skilled dance moves. Rumor has it that this pirate’s even taken a deck mop out for a tango dance or two. So watch out if this buccaneer ever makes it to the dance floor!

Suggested attire: a white puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, a cream-colored vest, a white and cream striped sash-type belt, brown pants, boots, and a pirate hat. A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. 

 

BLADE ‘THE STUMBLER’ BONES

Third Mate of the Black Cloud

Blade Bones is the clumsy Third Mate of The Black Cloud.  Don’t let this klutzy pirate get too close to you for too long!  The way things have been going for Dagger lately - this pirate will most likely make the sky fall next!

Suggested attire: cream-colored puffy-sleeved pirate shirt, dark-colored vest, sash-type belt, dark pants, boots, and a pirate hat.  A fake sword and an eye patch are optional props. 

 

ASHE ‘THE DAGGER’ EASTON

Deckhand of the Black Cloud

The outspoken deckhand, Ashe ‘The Dagger’ Easton, is a force to be reckoned with. Any unnecessary messes or scuffles on the deck will land you flat on your back, with your ears ringing for days. This is one deckhand who knows the job and takes control of the scene.

Suggested attire: Girl: lace-up pirate-style dress, sash-type belt, and matching sash-type headband. A fake sword is an optional prop. Rhinestone eye patch. Boy: traditional pirate attire.
