The Gold Hoarder

The Gold Hoarder

Founder of the Gold Hoarders, his avarice led to a transformation into a gilded Skeleton Lord.

One of the most powerful of the dreaded Skeleton Lords – undead pirates whose cursed misfortune or sheer force of will has allowed their spirit to linger within their body after death – the Gold Hoarder continues an endless obsession with treasure that began when he was alive.

Going far beyond the gold lust exhibited by those of the Trading Company that bears his name, the Gold Hoarder’s crazed desire led him to replace parts of his own body with the metals and jewels he so desperately craved. In the end, this made him one of the deadliest treasures waiting to be discovered by foolhardy pirates. But no matter how often the Gold Hoarder is defeated, it seems greed is a hard stain to scrub away.
