' Bout the Captain


The story of how Captain Thomas Easley, the most famous pirate you've never heard of, and his wife, Grace O''Patrick, met is a romantic tale. While transversing around the Emerald Isle on a trip for acquisitions, the Captain's navigator misjudged how rough the waters were. In advertently Captain Easley was thrown overboard into the rough seas, hitting his head on a rock upon impact. Watching the ship out of curiosity, a mermaid named Sheila Patrick, grabbed the Captain and took him to shore staying with him to attend to his injuries. When the Captain woke and their eyes met, it was love at first sight. When the ship returned, Sheila decided to leave her mermaid life behind, keep her "land" legs and join the captain becoming a pirate herself. Captain Easley married Sheila and gave her a proper pirate name - "Grace" because of her and the grace of God saving his life & "O''Patrick" in honor of her former mermaid name. Their love is the kind that will endure forever.

Captain Thomas Easley and Grace O''Patrick, hail from McKinney, TX, and are members of The Bloody Brigade pirate krewe. With the rest of the Brigade hailing from the eastern seaboard, the Captain and Grace head east to join the rest of their krewe at as many pirate gatherings as possible. While Captain Easley loves the adventure of acquisitions, his heart really lies with putting smiles on the faces of children, engaging those with special needs, and jumping in to help out animals in need. That is why 10% of our profits go to Autism Speaks, St. Jude Children's Hospital, and the Collin County Animal Shelter.
