Character Design: Research

Concerning our 10week Character project, we were asked to develop three characters (Hero, Villain and Sidekick) based on 2 subjects and a theme. 
My 2 subjects are Fantasy and Pirate and Mystery as a theme.

This combination sounds really exciting to me, however I am trying to find an interesting way of combining them and visualising them. I went to do a quick research about the definitions of each word which then will broaden my vision about it.

Fantasy: Something that contains imagination unrestricted by reality, fiction with a lot of imagination, Supernatural elements or unrealistic events that people believe to be false.
It can be characterized by its style, which is representational and naturalistic rather than abstract.
It is also called visionary art, grotesque art or mannerist art. Moreover it is deeply interactive with fantasy literature.

Mystery: Something that is not fully understood, which contains a work of fiction or dealing with obscure and secret.

Pirate: Someone who robs at sea without commission from a sovereign nation, or makes use of or reproduces the work of someone else without legal right or authorisation.
The term can be applied to acts committed in the air, land or on a shore.

Mystery-fiction: The terms focuses on supernatural or thriller mystery in which the solution does not have to be logical or even no crime is involved.


Film Influence: These films show a good example of my three subjects, however I wanna move away from Pirate in the sea to something less generic.
