Head Chef Jean Marquess DeFouineur (a.k.a. Stabby, Jeanny, Stabitha)

A brawler of unknown origin and the head cook aboard the Rolling Storm.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

Towering, lean, and exceptionally flexible with a hearty fortitude. He often wears a severe expression that may be perceived as a permanent scowl.

Body Features

Two curved, ram-like horns portrude from either side of her head, and her ears are pointed at the tip. She has a heavy brow and deep-set, sunken eyes.   He has several piercings along their ears and face, and tattoos across their body.

Identifying Characteristics

They have a long, vertical scar that runs through their right eye. The coloring in this eye is lighter than the other as a result of physical trauma.

Physical quirks

Double jointed and partially blind.

Apparel & Accessories

Stabby tends to prefer traditional and punk gothic styled attire on average, with a heavy preference for the color black. They like chains, metal piercings, heavy boots, and ripped clothes.   On some occassions, stabby enjoys dressing up in extravagant and decadent or skimpy and revealing outfits, especially during rare instances of social outings.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Not much is known about their past by the general crew. Stabby keeps their private life a secret and likes it that way. He dodges questions about it when he doesn't just ignore it outright, but what is known hints at a compelling narrative.   Stabby is wanted and on the run, and though he has never disclosed the nature of his crimes, it can be assumed that violence plays some part. He has been to jail for a significant amount of time, and on more than one occassion. Stabby has also revealed that he has worked on other ships as a cook in the past, and has some formal culinary training.


Androsexual (interested in men)


Stabby is capable of reading and writing, though he did not receive a formal education growing up. He has been trained in the culinary arts and worked as an apprentice in a kitchen.


Stabby has employment experience as a prison barber, prison cook, line cook, sous-chef, head chef, and doing mercanery work.

Accomplishments & Achievements

An accomplished and extraordinarily talented chef, Stabby is renowned among many pirate circles for her culinary expertise. In addition, she is respected among the crew not just for her high standards of culinary excellence, but feared for her low tolerance for tomfoolery and willingness to resort to violence when deemed necessary - which is usually.   As a brawler, Stabby is self trained, and highly effective. They're dextrous and lethal with their fists and can easily engage in effective combat with improvised weaponry.   Though he has been imprisoned on numerous occassions, Stabby's escaped captivity nearly as many times, and proves difficult to keep tabs on.

Failures & Embarrassments

Being on the run, Stabby tends to avoid civilization at large, and isolates himself aboard the ship. He doesn't always work well with others and has a short, volatile temper that results in violent actions.

Mental Trauma

Stabby displays traits of avoidant personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and some traits of schizoid personality disorder. He is paranoid and reactive.

Personality Characteristics


Stabby is motivated by a desire to live authentically, in a way that is most comfortable for them. Love and companionship can be welcome, but is of far less concern than respect and acceptance- as well as healthy doses of fear. It is important not to fall under anyone's thumb, and always have a viable escape route on hand if necessary. Self-reliance is a necessity, and a vital point in the concept of freedom.

Savvies & Ineptitudes

Stabby is a professional cook with an extremely versatile repertoire. They have experience in various types of cuisine, and they are ace at working under pressure or preparing a dish with limited materials. Outside of the kitchen, they have a sharp perception and a keen ability to discern the moods and motives of others. Their domineering physical presence only adds to their natural intimidation factor, and Stabby is perfectly aware of how to use it to their advantage.     On the down side, they're undiplomatic and prefer to work alone, and their violent and antisocial behavior does not always endear others to them- but Jean likes that just fine. He has poor social skills.

Likes & Dislikes

Stabby loves his privacy and prefers personal space. He is interested in knives and blades of all sorts, and, aside from culinary pursuits, enjoys making jewelry. He likes whiskey, swordfish, and collecting model ships.   Dislikes include being crowded, being touched, and regular social gatherings.

Virtues & Personality perks

While he may keep himself at a distance from others emotionally, Stabby is usually honest with others about his thoughts and feelings. He is observant, decisive, capable, hardworking, and disciplined.

Vices & Personality flaws

He is blunt, critical, intimidating, reclusive, paranoid, and violent, and often resistant to change. He does not like being told what to do, especially when it comes to his own areas of expertise. He is a heavy drinker and suffers frequent heartburn and abdominal pain, insomnia, and high blood pressure.
