Bio:

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball.” Herman Melville. Moby Dick

Not long ago, Harold slew a member of the Villanova family in a duel. The family has not forgiven him. He decided that the sea was possibly the best place for him.

Harold became captain of Hanged Meg during a short battle with a Castillian ship. The first mate and captain were both taken by cannon-shot. Harold roused the crew into action and led them to victory.
