Character Bio: Harry Hook
Name: Harry Hook
Occupation: Pirate/Second in Command for Uma’s gang
Alliance: Uma’s Gang/The Jolly Roger
Bio: Harry is the son of Captain Hook. He lives on the Isle of the Lost with all the other villains and their kids. Harry’s childhood was worse than unsatisfying. Captain Hook went mad after being defeated by Pan and trapped by the crocodile afterwards. He has these random psychotic outbursts in Harry’s childhood where he would think he was back in Neverland fighting Peter Pan. Because Harry was so young, he used to think Harry was Peter in these moments and attack him. He would lock him in the cells below the ship for hours or days while going through these psychotic periods. This type of trauma drove Harry to the edge of madness making the boy slightly psychotic in nature.
Now, he is a reluctant lap dog to his father who still abuses him constantly. He hangs out with Uma and Gil to get away from home for the day and some of the night.
- The Isle doesn’t diagnose mental illness so Harry’s trauma is untreated and people write it off as saying Harry’s eccentric.
- The little pocket watch he carries around is like a mental anchor for him. The ticking gives him something to focus on so his mind doesn’t wander to bad places.
- His father viewed Peter as a greater focus albeit an enemy but he still had all of hooks attention even far apart from him. This caused Harry to have this strong hate for Peter even before meeting him.
- Harry gravitates towards anyone who can tame his craziness because it means they care enough about him to learn how.
