Prince Hakon


A pirate prince’s son with a secret he still hasn’t figured out…

Prince Hakon is a young man in his early 20s.  His height is average, at 58.  He weighs in at a 145 lbs.  He looks like any other non-descript sailor in any port town. Prince Hakon is quite unaware of his pirate prince status.  He has a rather odd tattoo on his back, in the shape of a little known island chain.  The center island of the chain is of a different color than the other islands in the tattoo.  It is a map to a secret stronghold used by his father.

Prince Hakons father was a pirate prince and his mother was a tavern wench.  Hakons father promised to take care of her if she produced an heir.  When Prince Hakon was born, his father tattooed the location of his hidden stronghold on the childs back.  Hakon was a young boy of six onboard his fathers ship when it was hit by a storm.  Hakons father tried to guide the ship to a safe harbor but the storm smashed the ship among the rocks.  Most of the crew drowned, including Hakons father.  The young boy survived, washing up on a beach not far from a port town.  He was hundreds of miles from home and had no idea how to get back

Years later, his mother, not knowing the boy survived, mentioned the tattooed map to one of the patrons that frequented the tavern she still worked.  She is aware of the general area where the island chain is located but not its exact location.  The sailor, unknown to her, was one of the survivors of her husbands ship wrecked crew. 

Hakon is now a sailor and although he knows about the tattoo, he has no idea what it means.  He has shown it to a couple sages but they have not figured out what it means.  Hakon knows where he was born but the ship he works on has never gone there.

Special Equipment
Hakon has no special equipment.  He is an ordinary seaman working on a legitimate merchant ship.  His map is his only treasure.

Roleplaying Notes
The possibilities are up to the GM as there are so many

Another good submission. People could be looking for him to find the map.

Again, which 30 is this submission from?

This character is from the 30 Princes.

This certainly expands upon the Prince Hakon entry of the 30 Princes. The link between the sailor his mother confides in and Prince Hakon seems a little thin, and that he does not make a greater effort to get home.

Also, while there are a lot of possibilities for roleplaying, a few examples would be good since you included the section.

So, basically this is Enola from Waterworld, with her map tattoo showing the way to Dryland...

That is the basic plot of the 1995 Kevin Costner movie, Waterworld.

This sub twists the story a little, but I find little or no invention here.

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
