This article is about the banker turned pirate. You maybe looking for the former Pirate King, Captain Jim Logan.
James Logan was a banker turned pirate, hailing from London. He was the Captain of the Red Phoenix.
Logan was born to an upper-middle class family, mostly made up of bankers. Early in his life, James decided he would too take part in the family business, unlike his brother Victor, who believed that the profession was not a good way to make money, as he thought it was too slow, and the income was too small, and thus decided to become a pirate in the West Indies. Although Logan was distraught by this, he eventually accepted that his brother would die, as the East India Trading Company had started cracking down on Piracy.
Years later, there was an economic collapse following the downfall of the Company, causing the family bank to be shut down. Logan took this opportunity to go to the Caribbean to start a new bank to try and take advantage of the situation. Not even two days after arriving, Logan witnessed his brother die from a firing squad, and read his will, discovering that Victor had left all his belongings to James.
While trying to decide what to do with Victor's ship, Logan was approached by a woman named Trish who sought to purchase the vessel. Logan, who had been smitten by the beautiful woman, invited her into the cabin to discuss another course of action.

Logan was not a very good sailor, knowing this, he placed Trish in charge of the helm of the Red Phoenix.
Logan had brown hair that went down to his eyes, and halfway down his neck, which he kept tied in a bandanna most of the time. He had blue eyes, and a large phoenix tattoo covering his entire back. When questioned about this by Trish, Logan told her it was symbolic of his family, and how they would often rise from the ashes of hardship.
