Blastbeard is pirate who is hunting different kind of treasure: first-place in the Tour! He won the Trophy once before -- but then he somehow forgot where he put the gilded thing! His memory, morals, and hearing might be shakey, but he is not a bad guy, really. Just slightly.
Blastbeard is a corpulent, gluttonous, off-his-rocker swashbuckler who makes his home in CRATER’S EDGE, a region known for its breathtaking, bottomless waterfalls; its pristine beaches, which are littered with buried treasure; and its shiploads of goofball Buccaneers, aka, The Grand Crew.
First among equals in this motley bunch is Blastbeard, a Pirate who’s turned over a new leaf. After spending most of his life as a notorious brigand, and hoarding considerable wealth in the process, he signed up for the Rocket Championship Tour a few years ago on a lark – and won! The experience was a revelation. Suddenly, Blastbeard knew the joy of winning something fair-and-square, instead of simply taking it by force.
But the joy was short-lived, because Blastbeard is a rather forgetful chap, and cannot for the life of him remember where he put that blasted Trophy! That’s why he’s put aside pirating for good and once again joined the Tour, so he can win another one and bolt it somewhere safe this time! Blastbeard is also hard of hearing after spending so many years standing too close to booming cannons, which makes teaming with him frustrating for other competitors. “Arr, I didn’t know yer asked, ‘Which one’ll explode?’ I thought yer said, ‘Which way’s the commode?’”
