Talak was one of the members of Garin's crew before the Black Pawkeet was captured by Captain Scarblade. But Talak remained loyal to Garin, helping him in small ways whenever he could. In the end, he, Jacques and Garin were able to sail the seas in the Black Pawkeet once again!
The crew is scattered. Some escaped like I did...and some joined with Captain Scarblade.
