Blazes! The Name!
Well, friends, I would be a fool not to tell you that I deciphered this riddle. Without getting into the whole delineation of the path to pluck this from the depths of filed imagination in a historical context, I shall now present to you the real identity of Captain Jas. Hook of the Jolly Roger. He is none other than the personage mentioned in Peter and Wendy in this line: Wendy thought Napoleon could have got it, but I can picture him trying, and then going off in a passion, slamming a door. And it also explains why said personage is often depicted with his right hand hiding in his vestments.
So glad that's solved on this, the first day of April.
