50 Ships Mufassah

50 Ships Mufassah is a pirate, distinguishable by walking around on crutches, currently living on Mos Le'Harmless. He can be found upstairs in Harpoon Joe's House of 'Rum' and plays a minor role in the Rocking Out quest.

Mufassah earns his name because, over the course of the years, he has had a total of 50 ships. Each of these has been scuttled or taken, and nearly any loot he has ever obtained has been restolen, buried in an obvious location or destroyed. His ineptitude[1] reinforces the low opinion Bill Teach has on him, describing him as failing when it comes to piracy and going so far as to draw comparisons on his skill (or the lack thereof) as a pirate with the player.[2]

During Rocking Out, players must take Mufassah's only remaining treasure. To accomplish this, they must first gain his trust by joining his crew. Once the player agrees to join, he'll inadvertently point them towards the Dragontooth Shipwreck off the northeast coast of Dragontooth Island, where the idol sank along with one of his past ships, forcing the player to dive underwater to retrieve it.

After completing the quest, the player can visit him to claim a parrot cage from Bill, and then an ex-parrot from Mufassah which belongs to Achmed the Brutally Violent. Because the player refuses to take any other jobs on Mufassah's ship, they are given the task of keeping a dead parrot as a joke. The player can use the caged parrot on a black slab on Mos Le'Harmless to revive it as an ex-ex-parrot, a pet, which scares Mufassah when he sees it.
