All powerful eyes have turned to the Western Colonies in the America's from Europe. Trade in the Caribbean has flourished and many pirates have found homes along with riches and a name for themselves. It's the Golden Age of piracy, lots of men making a name for themselves, giving way to famous pirates such as Blackbeard, Henry Avery, and "Calico Jack". Luckily for these sailors, it is easy to catch up to a Royal trade ship, whether it be of France, Great Britain, or any other nation, board their vessel and slaughter every last one of them until surrender has been announced. Not only did they gain another ship, but they also could take the supplies and trade them on the market at certain of not all pirate ports scattered around the waters to obtain even more money. Not to mention, if there is an officer of importance, they could always have fun with a bit of ransom. It's a golden age for those who break the law and fight for profit instead of for King and Country. Ruthless pirates roam the seas the most concentrated area is the West Indies, formally known today as the West Indies. For Theo Edwards, his fun has just begun. At the ripe young age of 17, he finds himself under a close eye from Captain Henry Khelp. He has long ago broken his ties to the civil world, it never being a place of his talent to become a pirate. Captain Henry Khelp, or Silver Beard, has taught Theo how to handle a sword properly along with firing a pistol or two plus other tricks of the trade. A unique trust has formed between the two and Theo is certain that he will become Captain of the Killer's Gold, Henry's ship, until the Dark Harlots came into the picture six years ago. A rivalry has sparked between the two factions, splitting ties as well as lobbing off heads. What truly caused this feud is not completely accurate. The Red Blade's (Theo's group of men) pinned the untimely death of Captain Henry Khelp on those Harlots. A new Captain rising even more ruthless than Silver Beard by the name of Tiras. Now neither faction can go so much as to glance at one another without a fight brewing. The Red Blade's retaliated to their Captain's death with the burning and sabotage of the Dark Harlots's ships as well as the stealing of supplies. Even today, they are still at war with one another but the wind is about to change. Standing bound within the tight ropes of the foremast shroud, Theo closes his eyes and lets the crisp air flow into his lungs. Remembering, long ago, Silver Beard had showed him how to climb the intricate ropes and hold on tight so the wind doesn't shove him off. Now he has matured so much, currently at the age of 24. Always finding the open sea relaxing, he can taste the salt on his tongue as the mighty beak cuts through the waves as if they're nothing but wet paper. Unbeknownst to him, the Killer's Gold is heading right for a cove littered with Dark Harlot members. Tiras' actions are clear in his mind for he has a meeting requested by the opposite faction's Captain.
