Hardluck’s love of cigars can be detected by his yellowed fingers and the thick odor of tobacco smoke that erpetually drifts from his clothes. He doesn’t walk so much as swagger, and the pirate lord’s unpredictable temper is legendary throughout the Shackles. Many believe that what Hardluck needs is the calming influence of a good partner, but few realize he already has his eyes set on one. Kiyano Remsteel (CN male human rogue 3) is the object of his affections, and the young ex-deckhand can count himself among the few who benefit from the good side of Hardluck’s turbulent nature. Kiyano encourages Hardluck’s advances to a certain extent, but many believe (quite rightly) that the lad is only humoring the old salt until he admits where he has squirreled away his wealth. Afterward, the young pirate plans to leave the island altogether in his search for the fabled treasure.
