    The sea-cook on board the Hispaniola, Long John Silver soon turns out to be a notorious pirate, who has lost his leg in some kind of unspoken battle when he was part of Captain Flint ’s group of buccaneers. We’re first introduced to the man only in rumor, through Billy Bones ’s fear of a one-legged man. Jim, for his part, immediately likes Silver, who treats him kindly and invites him.
