Cap'n Hand is a Pirate who was involved in the "Lost Pirate" Random event. He would mistake the player for one of his shipmates. If the player ignored him, he would attack the player with a crossbow. He would usually keep shooting the player to the death. He was very accurate and hit almost every time even if the player was wearing high level armour. If a player tried to talk to him while he was in the process of attacking that player, he would stop attacking them and they would receive a small reward from him.

After an update on 11 September 2014, the random event was removed. Cap'n Hand was relocated to the Port Sarim Jail, where he has been imprisoned for harassment. He can be found in a cell with a level 23 pirate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cap'n Hand's name is a parody of the villain of Peter Pan known as "Captain Hook", referring to the hook he used in place of his hand after losing it to a crocodile. It could also possibly be a reference to Israel Hands, a real life pirate and character in Treasure Island, or The Captain's Hand an episode of Battlestar Galactica. More likely it is just a pun on the phrase "cap in hand", referring to beggars.
  • Despite the fact he seems to wield a regular crossbow, he uses the Karil's crossbow attack animation.
