maxwell montigue
maxwell was born to a wealthy London banker but hated his life. He listened to stories of pirates and adventures on the high seas, told to him by the family's gardener. This lead the young man to run away to sea at the age of 16. He worked as a deck hand, before signing on to a whaler. He had a talent with the harpoon and soon became a harpooner.

He lost his lower right leg when he was 25 after getting tangled up in another sailers harpoon line and being dragged underwater. The only way for him to survive was to cut off her one leg.

As a way to never forget to look where he put his feet, he had a peg leg carved out of a rib bone of the whale that nearly killed him
