Name: Papa Legbones
Occupation: Spirit Talker
Home: Skull Island, Scurvy Dogs Isle
Weapon of Choice: Mojo Staff

The budding witch doctor learned quickly but refused to take Sister Snake as his magical patron – he heard another voice calling to him from far beyond. When Papa Legbones learned his student had pledged himself to none other than the Dark Crawler he cast out his student, just as he himself had been cast out. The young witch doctor met an untimely death and rose again as Old Scratch. Papa Legbones stayed in his cave, keeping to himself until a rival witchdoctor came to steal the Eye of the Serpent. Overcome by his foe, Legbones would cry out for help from beyond the grave...
