In his youth, Meathook was an aspiring artist who was on the way to great things, even being appointed by the governor to do a painting for his granddaughter’s wedding. However, between this and the events of The Secret of Monkey Island he lost both of his hands and had them replaced by hooks. Losing his ability to paint, Meathook began piracy and resided on Hook Island, on the north-east coast of Mêlée Island.
