Captain Woodes Huss was a long-time inhabitant of Alton Island. He had given up his days on the seven seas, abandoning his crew and taking their treasure map in the process. He arrived on the island in 1981, settling down in the town of Springton. In 1984 Woodes found a lost child wandering the streets who had no knowledge of his family, home, or name - he adopted the boy, naming him Jet. He felt that he was making up for all the deeds he had done as a pirate.
In June 1997, Woodes was out drinking at a tavern in another town when he overheard some of the locals talking about the monstrous goings-on in the Forbidden Valley, and how they wouldn't stand for it any longer. They planned to fight the evil that was corrupting the land. Woodes, completely rat-arsed, offered to help them. The next day, they all headed out to the Forbidden Valley. They headed deep into the valley, and realised how in over their heads they were. Mile after mile of barren wasteland; no green in sight, red storm clouds brewed overhead, and the decaying remains of old communities. They were eventually attacked by a huge purple monster: a Nemesite.
Woodes was the only survivor of the bloody battle, but he hadn't made it out unscathed. His right arm and both legs had been mauled beyond repair. The Nemesite dragged him to its master, Nemesis. Nemesis was impressed by his bravery and fighting skill. After violently removing Woodes' crippled limbs, he fitted him with cybernetic replacements. Woodes was initially grateful, until they began to corrupt him. Mere minutes after he was able to walk again, the man known as Woodes Huss was gone, replaced by an emotionless slave. Nemesis had gained yet another follower.
Woodes became known as Blade, the leader of Nemesis' army - His cybernetic arm containing the sword owned by the captain. His memories of Jet were gone - he was now vicious, bloodthirsty and completely unaware that his old crew would track him down in the next ten years...
Finally. After putting it off for over a year, Blade joins the roster.
Really, I have to give a lot of thanks to ~Cobra-Roll
for this one. he helped come up with many aspects of his design, such as hairstyle, hat, number of cybernetic limbs, and his name (based on Bristolian sea captain Woodes Rogers). Other influences on the design were Angstrom Darkwater from Ratchet and Clank (another suggestion by Cobra-Roll) and Edward Elric's automail. Seriously, a robotic arm that can turn into a sword. So cool, even I had to use it.
Wow. All of the rides in Forbidden Valley are now characters. Lava Lump doesn't count as a ride.
