Hmm... it's on the tip of my tongue. Oh yes! That helpful cat that seems to be everywhere. Even here on the message boards. *turns around, sees blind mew and screams*

I did not see a Jim Hawkins in the Admiral Benbow Tavern, there is a Jim Hawkins in Jonah Town. The NPC we first talk to in the Admiral Benbow is actually Ned Land, a character taken from Jules Vern's novel 20 000 Leagues under the Sea.

Incidentally, Ned Land is a French Canadian Whaler from Quebec. Purportedly the best Harpooner in the entire world. (Je suis desole, Louis de Bisque,)
