Captain Jack is an avid fisherman and pirate at heart. During a fishing expedition, Jack tragically lost a leg and turned to the bottle. A few years later, Capt. Jim came upon old Jack at the Wille T's, surrounded by empty Pain Killers and contemplating his next move in life. Jim, being the man he is, befriended Jack and after noticing Jack was just one leg short, took an old coconut shell and carved out a new peg leg for Jack. If you're luckly, you might just catch Jack laying back on Blue Highways or maybe filling in for the Michael Bean Pirate Show.
Rumors have it that Jack is a decedent of BlackBird, the nortious pecking chicken known to have roamed the Caribbean in the early 60's.
