Mr. Plugg’s “pet,” a simpleminded, hulking brute called Owlbear Hartshorn, is usually kept belowdecks in the middle hold, but Plugg brings him out on special occasions, such as when he wants someone killed or taught a lesson.

Owlbear Hartshorn is a large man with meaty fists. He’s a bit simple, and the rest of the crew enjoys having a laugh at the poor fellow’s expense. To try to make friends, Hartshorn has taken to clowning, laughing, and crying out random phrases at the top of his voice, as this seems to make people laugh. Owlbear likes to eat live crabs, breaking the shells with his teeth and fingers, and his shaved skin still shows signs of the tarring and feathering the crew gave him as a cruel joke not so long ago.

Plugg brought Owlbear up for a bit of entertainment, and he wound up fighting Fipps Chumlett and Roger D. Bell. Roger tried to convince Owlbear to throw the fight, but Plugg scared the man even more, even encouraging him to kill Roger. With a quick shot to the shoulder, Roger incapacitated the brute and showed him mercy and kindness, something his “master” never gave him.

During the Mutiny, Roger called out to owlbear to help them out, and he did so, knocking Patch Patchsalt out.
