Notey by the Designer:
Since it's TALK like a pirate, I looked for most quoted pirates and Francois L'Olonnais is at the top of the heap with his infamous "I shall never henceforward give quarter" as he vowed revenge on the Spanish soldiers who murdered his crew and turned this mild mannered country peasant into the most fearsome and bloodthirsty pirate to pillage the sea. He was cunning, daring, determined and demented in his single-minded pursuit of sating his revenge. Like most pirates, his career was short-lived. Despite numerous escapes from irons, he was finally captured, cooked and eaten by a cannibal Kuna tribe near Darien.

On the face is his dashing remains with his signature soul patch and rapier mustache and the musketeer garb he styled himself with frequently as he fought for the French crown. On the reverse is the heart (scary part of the stories) surrounded by the manacles of his slavery days as a child, his clam shell-guard cutlasses, the stolen cannon of Maracaibo, his lead ship of eight and finally the torch and musket he employed in his daring raids.
