Cinnabar, also known as Bloodbones, was a pirate-lord who plies his Evil trade in the seas around Ruddlestone and the northern Old World. His galleon was called the Virago. He was a worshipper of Quezkari and a master of Voodoo magic who sealed his heart in a jar to become immortal.
In Bloodbones, the hero sets out to avenge his family, murdered by Cinnabar, only to find himself targetted by Cinnabar's pirates and other worshippers of Quezkari.
Cinnabar is a very powerful fighter whose undead parrot keeps pestering the player, which weakens the player by 1 point of skill and costs the player 1 stamina point 1 to 6 times each attack round. After defeating the Pirate Lord, the player can only kill him for good if they pierce his heart. It they do so, Quezkari then appears to avenge his death.
