Old Bill was a pirate who operated during the Golden Age of Piracy. Bill was one of the many pirates who attacked Puerto Dorado, and he was later seen drinking in the Captain's Daughter in London. Wherever he went, Old Bill was always seen trying to persuade stray cats into joining him in drinking a few rounds of rum.
Nothing is known about Old Bill's early life. Like many other pirates, Old Bill ends up greatly drunk after drinking rum. He was mostly seen trying to persuade a group of cats to join him in drinking a few rounds of rum, but with little success.
Life as a PirateEdit
One day, he would join the pirate crew of the of the Wicked Wench. He participated in the Pirate Captain's raid on the Spanish island of Isla Tesoro. Old Bill and his mates successfully invaded the island and captured the main settlement, Puerto Dorado. During the attack, he could be seen opposite of an exhausted pirate sitting on the other side of the waterway, offering stray cats a bottle of rum.
