"We don't have many words to call people who do that specifically, but a lot of words for the action itself. "Playing hooky", a "no-show" "absent without leave" (these also apply to skipping work days).

Q: Captain Smollett was sure they would have won so he gave everyone a task in that hour. When it was time,one of them shot and the fight started. The captain was hurt but they won,and the nine remaining pirates ran away. The captain had to rest. The doctor went to see Gunn,with the map in the pocket. Jim decided to leave without telling anyone. He found the white rock where Gunn said he had hidden his boat when the sun was already gone down and entered in. Then he decided he would have cut the ropes of the Hispaniola from her anchor so the pirates couldn't leave the island no more. He used the boat to do that but that headed towards the open sea as the Hispaniola did. soa natural?
A: Generally okay but I suggest the following changes:

- delete the commas after “won” and “Gunn”
- change “the pocket” to “his pocket”
- change “sun was already gone down” to “sun had already gone down”
- change “entered in” to “went in”
- change “would have” to “would”
- change “no more” to “any more”

I don’t understand the last sentence. He used the boat to do what? What headed towards the open sea?
Q: Captain America said: "Your suit... it's vibranium?" Why he used "it's" instead of "is it"? Is it right? Is it just an informal kind of conversation or is it just grammatically incorrect?
A: I don’t know about it’s grammatical correctness, but it’s accepted in English.

When you say
“You don’t like it?” instead of “Don’t you like it?”
or “It’s new?” instead of “Is it new?”
it makes it less of a question. It kind of shows that you already know it, but you want to confirm it.
“You’re sure about this?” (You know he’s pretty sure, but you want to confirm it again)

It can also be a surprised reaction.
So if you think your employee comes to you saying he’s done with his task, you may say: “You’re finished? Already?”
