In Sheryl’s family, the occupation of sailor, and more particularly petty officer, has been passed down through the generations from mother to daughter. But being taken on as a crew member doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand with being accepted. Despite her remarkable skill with the cat o' nine tails, young Sheryl was still finding it hard to gain acceptance among the proud Piranas. It was only after a dual with Katan, who left her with an ugly scar across her face as a souvenir, that she finally earned the respect of Bloodh. Having since been promoted to matron-in-chief, she lambasts the Piranas' oarsmen by singing "You are a Pirate" along with the rest of the crew, in time to the strokes of her whip.
