Stormalong -- a.k.a. the Ghost of the South -- was a mysterious crime-fighter operating in 19th century Louisiana and in the Gulf of Mexico. He wore a series of lifelike masks. Among his aliases were Hugh Walker, a talented tavern singer and guitar-player, and the dreaded pirate Alving Faulkner. Stormalong claimed to have become a hero in order to make up for the evil deeds of his pirate ancesors. In reality, he was an avatar of Stormshadow.
