Brothers Two

Twins Arbelo and Karnelo Shirz were the sons of a prosperous merchant from Parsool. The merchant loved his family dearly and often took the boys and his wife on the sea voyages he made in the pursuit of business. He did this despite the danger of shipwreck and pirates. The odds finally caught up with the merchant when two pirate ships successfully attacked his vessel. The pirates captured the ship and murdered the merchant before the horrified eyes of his family. When splitting up the loot, one pirate captain took the boys as slaves and the other took their young and attractive mother. They never saw her again. Life was rough for the boys but they soon adapted and began to thrive. Over the years the boys learned all the pirates could teach them about seamanship and ship handling. They became excellent seaborne fighters, both with ships and hand weapons. The experience, however, affected each of them differently. Arbelo developed a deep, unquenchable hatred for pirates. Karnelo came to identify with them and grew to love the life. So much so that seven years later, when the opportunity to escape presented itself, Karnelo chose to stay with the pirates. He continued to distinguish himself and within 10 years he had his own ship and crew and earned the nickname “The Scourge of the Sea.” Arbelo made his way back to Parsool and joined the navy. He also quickly rose in rank and by age 22 became the youngest captain in the fleet and was soon known as “The Pirate’s Bane.” The brothers eventually became entangled in a cat-and-mouse game as Arbelo attempted to capture his brother. The stage is set. What will happen? Will filial love save the day or will tragedy consume them?
