The Wicked Wench is a class of vessel known as a Brig (not to be confused with a Brigantine), which refers to a two-masted, square-rigged vessel. Though not as large as many of her sister ships, a Brig is faster, and more maneuverable then those heavier craft, allowing her control of engagement, and the ability to intercept slow, heavily-laden trading vessels at will, making her ideal for a pirate crew.
The Wicked Wench was purchased and is captained by Captain Jack Sparrow, utilizing considerable loans from a pair of his crew members, one Finn Strat, and Elpeth Inzvekt, a gorgeous young woman with a sharp mind and a cutting wit, a simple delight to be around. Interest continues to accrue, thanks in no small part to Tlapcrap’s continued existence. Seriously, it’s not doing him any favours.
