First Mate of the Frigid Bitch
"I'm Barnabas fucking Bones! How fucking hard is that to remember?" - Barnabas Bones
An alchemical Skeleton and Solomon White's first mate in the Crew of the Frigid Bitch. Barnabas's personality is as abrasive as his perpetually burning body.
First Mate, Second Fiddle. Barnabas has no love for Solomon White. Although he glows brightly with unholy flames, Barnabas's reputation and wicked misdeeds seem to forever linger in the shadow of his captain. During the Frigid Bitch's raids on port towns, Barnabas goes out of his way to torture, mutilate, and dismember anyone unfortunate enough to cross his path in a desperate attempt to rise above Captain White's levels of notoriety. However, where White's hatred is indiscriminate, Barnabas gets caught up in the inconsequential minutiae of mass murder. Little details, such as his victims not already knowing his name, or their screams not hitting the correct pitch send him into a rage, causing Barnabas to become sloppy and less effective with his wanton killings.
Perhaps one day Barnabas will overcome his own ego and evolve from a regular villain into the supervillain he so desperately wishes to be. Until then, he can always tyrannically exert his authority over the rest of the crew for imagined slights and jealous spite.
12/15/5003 Update - Barnabas was struck down by Shai Hulud when the Crew of the Frigid Bitch attacked Port Liberty (see "Cold Hard Bitch").
