I can't help it. I am a sucker for tragic love stories. In Green Ronin's "The Pirate's Guide to Freeport" there is a pirate legend that is both horrifying and tragic, the tale of Porcelina. I plan on using her in my AGE of Freeport game, so I decided to stat her up.
Selina Armand was a beautiful privateer that sailed the waters around Freeport. Many men wanted her, but Selina's heart belonged to a quiet toy maker named Robert. During one of her travels she contracted a horrible wasting disease. No cure could be found, so her dearest Robert made a bargain with a demon. He would make a doll for Selina's essence to be transferred in to, then demon would turn it to flesh and blood. The demon had other plans. Waking, and possessing inhuman strength, Selina went mad, killed her beloved Robert, and fled into the night.
She sails the seas to this day. In her madness she's convinced herself that her Robert is still alive. She constantly is "reunited" with her lost love, but once she realizes it isn't Robert, she kills the man, and turns him into one of her marionette men. She still sails the seas around Freeport aboard her ship, Robert's Regret, as the dreaded Porcelina.
