Name: Nicola Sheppey
Nickname: (if any) Nikki
Relation to Jack Sparrow: Briefly spent some time on The Black Pearl as a member of the crew; she left the ship due to being offered the post of first mate on another ship.
Race: Half and half. She doesn't know about her mother's demonic heritage as it was always kept secret from her and her father.
Appearance: Tall for a woman, with pale skin and long black hair that has reddish highlights in it. Her eyes are green. Nikki refuses to wear dresses and instead dresses in boy's clothes. She wears a full face silver plated face mask due to having been scarred in a fight between the ship she was first mate on and another pirate ship.
Short Bio: Nikki ran away from home to join a pirate ship as her father was trying to force her into an arranged marriage. Nikki soon managed to prove herself and was accepted as a crew member on the first ship she joined, after besting one of the men who disapproved of women on board. She has a very hot temper, and can be recklessly impulsive, even dangerously. Nikki also refuses to ever remove her mask, save to eat which she does alone, and to sleep. Anyone who tries to take it off without her permission will end up regretting it.
Reason for being a pirate: Nikki loves the sea, and the wildness of a pirate's life appealed to her, as the stuffiness of life as a provincial lady on land did not.
Nikki sat in a nearby pub, a glass of ale in her hand. She gave off an aura that fairly screamed, "Leave me alone, or else", meaning that others in the pub gave her a wide berth. She wore black clothes from head to foot; boy's clothes, rather than the dresses which she hated and found stifling to both her body and her soul. Nikki's hand briefly touched her silver plated face mask, which hid the hideous scars that to her had ruined her beauty and made her a monster. The mask had a gap where the mouth was, so she could drink her ale without ever having to remove it.
