never again shall we take such orders. serving the king. fighting his wars. that is the way of dishonor. we’ll sail under the crimson flag and we’ll give our enemies no quarter. we’ll take what we please. and we live by our own rules. for that is the best form of all.
our kingdom is corrupt and immoral. they took my brother from me. and now I’m going to take everything they’ve got.
starting with this ship. we no longer sail as the jewel of the realm. we now sail as the jolly roger. and when they come for us, I want them to know exactly what we are. pirates.
for at least among thieves, there is honor.
