Feeding his parrot
Known originally as “that guy who wears T-shirts sometimes,” grad student Jeremiah Thompson discovered an ancient map during a meeting of the Purdue Improv Club. In following this map, he discovered the Spirit of Old, who bestowed upon Jeremiah the name Cap’n Redbeard. Not knowing what, exactly, he was the captain of, Jeremiah returned to the Improv Club. One meeting, after all but eight members of the club had left, glowing radioactive pirates jumped out from behind the divider walls. The club members fought bravely and dispatched the pirates, but not before being bitten and mutated into half-student, half-pirate superheroes. Suddenly, Jeremiah understood his destiny and took command of the Ship of Fools.
