Killian “Hook” Jones – Once Upon a Time
The quintessential child-hating, crocodile-phobic pirate of fantasy, Captain Hook, received a thorough reimagining for ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Killian “Hook” Jones became a pirate when a mission to Neverland for his king turned deadly for his brother, who poisoned himself in an attempt to demonstrate that the plant they had been tasked to retrieve was as harmless as their king had led them to believe.
Flying the crimson flag as the captain of the newly dubbed Jolly Roger, Hook convinced his crew to be honorable pirates, but ones who would show their enemies no quarter. Later, Hook’s life of piracy took another grim turn when Rumpelstiltskin, the crocodile, took his hand and his love. Much of Hook’s life since then has been dedicated to vengeance.
