Jarijch van Den Helder
Some Sea Beggars at GWW XXI.
(He's the one in black and white, poised to spring into action and grinning.)
Previously known as "Jerrik of Gyldenholt," "Jerrik van Den Helder," and “Lord Yarddicc.”
THL Jarijch van Den Helder was admitted to the Order of the Argent Blade on 09/11/2021.
He is the Captain and unit-commander of the Sea Beggars.
The van Den Helders are a Dutch merchant family who traded goods, mainly otter pelts, ale, and whiskey, along the coasts of Europe. When the 80 Years War began their ship, The Golden Fox, was turned over to Jarijch van Den Helder who refitted it for combat in the Dutch rebellion against the Spanish.
The Sea Beggars often made port in Emden (Germany) where Jarijch's brother, Anders van Den Helder, inherited the Inn of the Golden Fountain, now known as The Beggars Inn, through his marriage to Clara. As a member of the Sea Beggars you can either sail along side the rapier fighting unit or assist in running the Inn.
