Soowipsoot, or Sue, is an avian-type alien, a member of the Birds Of Prey. The clan banner is a scimitar with accents that shape it like a feather, and a star near the handle.
BOPs are known for their hooked weaponry, Sue's is a combination of fighting knife, grappling hook, and superheated hull-cutter. All the boarding, commandeering and raiding essentials.
Sue's lucky hat is a modified bicorn with a piece of first ship succesfully raided, and ends in ringed strips. Authority in the front, grog party in the back.
I enjoy creating new stuff, it's been quite a while since I exercised my brain.
It looks and feels like a very traditional pirate because if I have to spend time explaining why it's pirate-y, then I failed as a designer. yet i hope i've taken it far enough that it looks interesting.
could be fancier but i sat on this for too long. When i decided to, got only a few days to throw something together.

Before reading the description - I didn't even get as far as trying to figure out if it was a pirate, I was mesmerized by the dynamic pose and also found the bird-like species (alien you say?) very interesting! Love the original take on it like the details on the beak/eyes Very cool.
