Life leading up to The Sims 3Edit
In The Sims 3: Island Paradise, Edward Dregg is a ghost that died by drowning who appears in Isla Paradiso with his wife, Cara Dregg. Unlike The Sims 2: Bon Voyage, he is a playable ghost, not an NPC. It is implied in his biography that he dreams of visiting Twikkii Island, possibly setting Isla Paradiso's timeline before the events of The Sims 2.
Life leading up to The Sims 2 and The Sims Castaway StoriesEdit
Pirate Captain Edward Dregg is a male ghost that appears on Twikkii Island in The Sims 2: Bon Voyage and in Buccaneer Cove on Wanmami Island in The Sims Castaway Stories. He comes out of the captain's cabin on the pirate ship after Sims have plundered it several times, and he'll hang around on the ship for a while afterward. If Sims raise their relationship with him, they can ask him to teach them how to sing a sea chantey. This will add the vacation memento "Learned a Sea Chantey" after they have sung it twice. However, the only interactions for him is to tell jokes and admire him, though he probably won't accept the admire interaction right away. Sims can sing and teach the sea chanty to other Sims; a Sim that learns the sea chantey in this way can still sing it with the pirate captain, although he will decline the interaction if they do not have a high enough relationship with him.
When summoned to a lot by the mailbox with testingcheatsenabled, he is referred to as the Ghost Captain. It has been reported that summoning him may not work. Edward uses the 27th face template. Even though he has black hair, his natural hair color is brown. This can also be distinguished by the color of his eyebrows.
In The Sims 2: Bon Voyage and Castaway Stories, Edward is generated once his NPC purpose is needed, unlike most other NPCs that exist before the start of the game. So technically speaking, there are no pre-made Pirate Captains, only computer generated ones. This is also the case of the Wise Old Man and Unsavory Charlatan.
