About Robert "Steel" Cofrez
Robert was born on seas, grew up on the seas, and if unavoidable, most likely will die on the seas as well.
He is the son of a former naval officer who turned to piracy after his nation arrested his family and took his lands. He managed to rescue his wife but not his parents. As Robert was born on the ship of his father he always felt the waters more to be his home than the land, well other than taverns and harbors where he was at ease at.
After his father passed away by the hands of his first mate he fled and joined an other pirate crew, after five years he avenged his father by murdering his killer, and took over the old ship as captain, but it didn't last long. A rival pirate captured the ship but allowed the still young boy to stay as long he cleans up after their mess.
Recently that old ship sunk near a shore because the navigator and most crew was drunk, he didn't die because when Robert got to the barrel the rum was already gone so he had nothing to get drunk off.
Damned rum! Why was all the rum gone? The whole plan to gloriously retake the ship after much planning sunk together with the ship itself. The captain should have watched the barrel better.
Robert got his nickname "Steel" as kid when a shark got his right leg and his dad made an unique stainless steel peg leg for him. Since then he is entirely used to it, it doesn't hinder him at all, and he can even use it in battle to the surprise of his enemies.
Robert wears an unique "Light Pirate Armor" that is pieced together from various clothes be it linen or silk, with typical sailor clothes and leather vest, and hidden underneath is studded leather and fire-treated wood to improve his defense. To most others the armor looks like proper worn down pirate clothes.
At the time when his father got murdered a parrot suddenly appeared to aid him, this parrot is strangely attached to him and is more clever than many people. As it turned out the parrot is the reborn ancestor of Robert (not his father) by the name Capt'n Jack Sailorbird. Or so it calls himself atleast. It is a "classical" scarlet macaw parrot, but has a tiny black eyepatch and a tricorne hat. He has a dirty mouth and good taste in women. If the parrot is killed it returns as another parrot in 24 hours, cursing everything that he had to die once again, with the same foul spirit/personality.
