Carina Smyth and Jack Sparrow on Scrum's mother.[src]

This woman was the mother of the pirate Scrum. She was apparently a prostitute, being described as "horizontally reclined".


Not much is known about this woman's life, except that at some point in the 1710s[1] in London, England[2] she and an unknown man had a son named Scrum. At some point, her son learned to play the mandola, and his playing of said instrument apparently brought a tear to his mother's eye.[3] At some point, this woman would also become a prostitute, but apparently did not like to talk about it.[4]

In 1751, when Carina Smyth was mistaken for a prostitute by the Motley crew, Scrum briefly brought up his mother.[4]
