“Well, this merchant is full of surprises, check his cabin for more of these, and ammunition to go with it.”
— Jack Claiborne, referring to a revolver he "acquired" from a defeated merchant captain.

Jack Claiborne was a notorious pirate and scoundrel from the early 1700s, and thorn in the side of just about every navy he encountered, most notably the IKN.

Early Life

Claiborne knew he was destined for the sea at an early age, and became a cabin boy on British merchant at the age of eleven. He served in that role for about three months before pirates attacked his ship, capturing it and offering a place in the crew for any willing to join. The young Claiborne, wanting adventure and money, accepted the offer and joined. From there he rose up in the ranks of the ship by both fair means and foul, becoming first mate on a ship at age 17.
