AbstractBefore Peter Pan, before the crocodile. and before the Jolly Roger, Captain James Hook was simply 'James,' a typical teenage boy from London who attended school, flirted with girls, and played cricket. Soon after he graduates from the prestigious Eton College, Britain is swept up into The Great War (WWI) and James finds himself falling for a girl his father doesn't approve of. How does he choose between duty and love, honor and happiness? We all know James' ultimate destiny, but his path to piracy has never been explained. What is it that causes him to commit his first crime of many--growing up?
