James Coker, also known as Porkbelly, was the captain of the pirate ship The Black Diana before it was attacked by Anne Bonny and the Kraken in the South Pacific. Anne and the Hussar brought him into the Kraken, and, when he condemned their attack as brutality rather than piracy, they fed him to it. He originated from Bristol, once owned a faithful dog, and slept with his cabin-boy. (PROSE: Weapons Grade Snake Oil)
