Candle Cove Wiki

Captain Grausam is the naval captain who terrorized Izod and Percival in the book The Nickerbocker's Tale . It is believed his Candle Cove counterpart is the Earl of Wax.


He only appears in two chapters, once when he punishes Izod, and when Percival tells why he became a pirate. He is old, and incredibly cruel, and enjoys meeting out punishments for the slightest offence.

He keelhauled Izod for taking a moldy apple no one even wanted.


  • His name is German for "cruel" and is also similar to the word "gruesome"
