Ambrose “Fishguts” Kroop
Crew of the Vindicator
Ambrose Kroop is the ship’s cook, nicknamed “Fishguts” by the crew, though whether this refers to the contents of his soups or the stains on his apron is unclear. His job is to bring the ship’s biscuit on deck at dawn for the crew, and prepare and serve the evening meal. Kroop is a drunkard, but not constantly inebriated. His unpredictability makes him a frustrating but ultimately useful friend. Like his friend Cut-Throat Grok, Kroop is from the school of hard knocks, but where Grok has become tough, Kroop has capitulated in the face of endless discipline and violence. Despite this he is still one to have survived into old age in a life of piracy and thus has a suprising amount of information when he isn’t drunk.
Now part of the man’s promise his drinking has been brought back to only after the evening to get drunk a very noble act as he sees it.
