Jakelad first appeared in The Jewel of Dingo Isles as a pirate under the command of Captain Merci. Jakelad loves to sing traditional pirate shanties and was secretly a member of the Cult of Bones who abandoned his crew at the sight of the Behemoth, a massive underwater monster whose true form is still a mystery. Jakelad was brutally murdered by Kinney Boots, who hated his songs that were often very racist towards Kobolds.
