"I said I would let them go. The rest is up to them." - Jean-Michel Warlock
Captain Jean-Michel Warlock is a space pirate and captain of the pirate battleship Saving Grace. He only appears in the episode Space Booty, where he is also the main focus. He is voiced by Neil Dickson.
Captain Warlock is a human male of slightly tall build with long brown hair that falls over one of his striking blue eyes, usually his left. He wears a dark indigo or purple cloak with a tall collar and yellow piping over a black naval uniform emblazoned with a horned skull-and-crossbones. His sleeves are rolled up, revealing his forearms. He has brown gloves with yellow cuffs, black knee-high boots with grey cuffs, and white trousers. The captain wears two belts: a yellow one with a skull-shaped buckle that is part of his uniform, and a brown one that his scabbard is attached to. A broad-bladed duelling sabre is stored in the scabbard. He speaks with a distinct English accent.
Warlock has an obsessive fetish for red hair and it is implied that he is bisexual. He has a gallery of portraits of red-haired lovers which seems to include one androgynous-appearing male, though it's also possible this is merely a close friend. He also carries an air of suaveness and a cool demeanor, but it only serves to hide his true intentions.
Warlock fell in love with Kiva the moment she, Coop and Jamie came aboard his ship after they captured Megas. He tricked her by promising that he would give her a time drive controller and attempted to trap her by and threatening her with ending the lives of Coop and Jamie... unless she became his queen. Despite this, he was defeated when Coop threw the car horn into the Saving Grace, which attracted the Florgnots (bat-like alien monsters sensitive to noise) into it and consequently making them attack the battleship from within. He is last seen vowing to return to obtain Kiva as his queen, his ship collapsing and falling into the orbit of the Florgnot planet.
What became of Warlock after this fate is unknown, but in the episode's ending credits scene, he can be seen weeping silently alongside Goat, who was just there for some reason, as he adds a newly made portrait of Kiva to his gallery.
- His name and appearance suggest he is a parody of Space Pirate Captain Harlock, a character and series revolving around said character created by Leiji Matsumoto.
- The name "Warlock" means oath-breaker. As well as a man who practices witchcraft, similar to a sorcerer and wizard.
- Captain Warlock is one of many villains in cartoons, live-action TV and movies to use the common trope of choosing female protagonists as (usually unwilling) queens in their world domination schemes.
- This is the only episode where Kiva speaks the customary pre-combat rant, as she was aggravated by Captain Harlock's unwelcome advances.
