Origin

 Nice Leg

Long John Silver is the former quartermaster (officer responsible for the food, clothing, and equipment of sailors) of the infamous pirate Captain Flint.  He claims to have lost his leg serving honorably under “the immortal Hawke” It should be noted that Silver lies a lot, or at least exaggerates, and much of the history he give about himself would be impossible.  One thing is for sure is that later in life he finds that  he can only find a ship by being a ships cook.

He is a hardworking and likable seaman.   He readily serves as substitute father to young Jim Hawkins when taken on in the position of ship’s cook during an expedition in search of a buried treasure.  During the voyage Silver reveals his true nature as that of a vicious buccaneer.  His parrot’s name is Captain Flint.
