Silent Tom – Cabin Boy
Name: Sir William Thomas Hackney III, or “Silent Tom”
Role in the Brigade: Cabin boy, but really he tirelessly keeps the entire Brigade on track.
Before the Brigade: Silent Tom comes from a line of accomplished gentlemen adventurers and claims to have six PhDs and a knighthood. Naturally, no one in the Brigade believes this since he is only the Cabin Boy.
Favoured weapons: The Spanish rapier and his singular intelligence.
Vices: Tom is chock full of virtue, but when he is feeling down trodden by the crew’s jeering, a stiff brandy does him some good.
Interesting fact: Tom’s unfortunate nickname comes from Lucky’s frequent assertions to “Be silent, Tom!” Despite this, Lucky frequently calls on Silent Tom to do the thinking.
