<h3>35 . Charles Vane . OC - Pirate. Zach McGowan . Enchanted Forest </h3>
<p>Charles is a fearless, violent and intensely passionate man with a terrible temper. He is a skilled and cunning fighter, whether with swords, fists or pistols. Charles has a tendency to think first with his fists, despite his hit first and ask questions later mentality he is quite intelligent, cunning, observant an he understands the way power works, especially amongst pirates.
<p>Charles was in love once, years ago, but in the end Charles put being a pirate first and ended up on the opposites sides of a battle from the woman he loved. Something he sometimes thinks about, but he tries his best to live a life with no regrets, so he refuses to admit that he made the wrong choice, choosing the pirate life over the woman.
<p>Vane was put into "indentured" slavery as a young child who had been orphaned during the ogre wars, he still bares a distinct mark on his chest from the man he'd been indentured to. Because of his he despises slavers, whether they claim indentured servitude or outright slavers. It was his strong desire for freedom from being under anyone's rule that eventually led him to double crossing his mentor Blackbeard and setting out to captain a ship on his own and build a name for himself. He lives by his own set of rules that he refuses to break ever, even for the woman he loved.
He is a skilled swordsman and fighter, that's about it for abilities of notable mention.
<p><b><u>Birth/Early Childhood </u></b>
<p>Charles was born to an average family in a small village in the Enchanted Forest. His parents weren't rich, but neither were they terribly poor either. His father was a blacksmith by trade, and with the ogre wars always raging somewhere in the Enchanted Forest, there was never a shortage for need of a Blacksmith's talents. He had a decently happy life, strict parents, but parents that loved him, he wanted for nothing.
<p><b><u>Parents Death/Ogre War</u></b>
<p>As the ogre wars raged on, his village became one of many causalities to the wars. Things were chaotic when the ogres broke through and started destroying the village, at some point in the chaos as many villagers fled in terror, poor Charles was separated from his parents, never actually seeing their fates. For all intents and purposes, Charles was now an orphan. Eventually he managed to get to a port town, where he did what he had to do in order to survive, whether it was pick pockets or beg on the streets.
<p>After a few months of picking pockets and barely surviving, Charles managed to get his hands on a very special ticket, a ticket that got him to a magical place called Pleasure Island. It wasn't a very good island, even though at first it seemed like the most magical place in the world. Eventually poor little Charles fell in with a bad crowd, and tried his little hand at gambling. A very cruel man convinced Charles to make a bet, a bet that ultimately cost Charles his freedom. He had been tricked of course, the man who he'd been gambling with had cheated, but Charles was a child, and there wasn't much he could do. The man took him away from Pleasure Island, along with a few other boys, and put them to work on his ship.
<p>Charles spent years under the man's cruel whip, and was even branded with a mark on his chest. Life was hard and cruel, and Charles knew nothing but unkindness and brutality. Eventually as he aged, he also grew stronger and taller, he dreamt of a time when he would be strong enough to break free and murder his captor. He finally got an opportunity as a teenager, when an opportunity presented himself, he and a few other of the slaves led a mutiny, that ended in Charles killing the man, it marked his first of what would eventually become many murders.
<p><b><u>Freedom and Life under Blackbeard</u></b>
<p>After achieving his freedom, Charles made his way to Longbourn, it was here that he met the notorious Blackbeard. He was able to impress the captain enough to be brought on as a member of the crew, all be it low in ranks, but at least he was a member of the crew of his own free will and no one's slave. Charles flourished as a part of Blackbeard's crew and managed to move up the ranks. Charles learned to love the life of a pirate, slave to no one, answering to no one (besides the Captain), no rules besides his own.
<p>Regardless of how much Charles owed Blackbeard for all he taught the young man, Charles had bigger dreams, of eventually answering to no man, not even a captain. Charles wanted to his own Captain, but starting your own pirate ship wasn't exactly the easiest of things to accomplish. In order for Charles to start his, it ultimately meant betraying Blackbeard with the help of certain woman, Eleanor, who had gained a reputation in the pirate community for being a black-marketeer.
<p><b><u>Love Labour's Lost</u></b>
<p>After the betrayal, Charles worked hard with his new found ally, Eleanor, he worked hard to get his own ship and his own crew. Betraying Blackbeard had only been a start, he had a ship secured with her help, but he still needed a crew, and pirates weren't quick to follow just anyone. During this time things between Charles and Eleanor became much more than just business partners or allies. Passions were inflamed, and they began an intense yet turbulent relationship. Despite their feelings for each other, they simply wanted very different things, and in the end Charles was forced to choose between Eleanor or his dream. The last time Charles saw Eleanor he was sailing away on his their ship, with his new pirate crew, and Eleanor had been arrested by authorities for her black market activities.
<p><b><u>Pirating his Own Ship</u></b>
<p>To say that Charles became a notorious pirate captain, might be a bit of a stretch if compared to the likes of Blackbeard and Hook. Even still Charles managed to hold his own, he was stern and he took no prisoners, he was blood thirsty, but he also lived by a code, his code, the rules he had made for himself that he would never break even if facing death.
<p>One day recently while he and his men were taking a much needed break in some obscure port town in some obscure part of the Enchanted Forest, after a heavy night of drinking and revelry, Charles managed to walk smack into a stray portal that tossed him out onto the Storybrooke beach, where he has found himself without his crew, without his ship, and quite pissed off about it all.
