Bessie was a character from the original Pirates line in 1989. Though there were a couple of other female characters such as Camilla, she was the only woman to appear in a set from the Pirates theme until a female Islander was released in 1994.
Bessie was a widow who ran a tavern named The Bottomless Barrel. It was frequented by Captain Redbeard, his crew, and other pirates. Her husband was also a pirate, but he met his end when he attacked the Governor's ship with just a rowboat.
