Background / Story

Unofficial story, written by Shillianth. Not to be replicated or used without permission.

Captain Briggsy’s real name is currently unknown within the lore, her story before arriving in the Sea of Thieves is also shrouded in mystery. However, she has created a reputation for herself as being an adventuring, cutthroat, wild card.

While human, Captain Briggsy appeared to be caring and formed relationships with a few people, although kept most at arm’s length. The person she seemed to trust the most was Sudds, an elderly astronomer, whom she thought of highly. Sudds being the only person to share the whereabouts of her treasures.

She was one of three pirate captains called to a coalition meeting, by Ramsey Singh AKA the Pirate Lord, the other two being Captain Eli Slate from the ship Morningstar and Captain Graymarrow from The Twisted Horn. This was probably due to her reputation for being able to break out of any jail that she found herself in. Being able to pick locks, alluding to a less than stellar childhood, she jumped at the chance to try and open one of Ramsey’s cursed chests however, was unable to and resulted in all of her tools breaking. She stayed and helped battle the kraken that attacked the Golden Sands Outpost, during the same coalition meeting, earning her the a reputation as being a Kraken killer.

Her most recent ship, Homeward Dove was a small and nimble, two person sloop that she was able to sail around proficiently. She was known to change her crew frequently and often left her own ship to drift off into the distance and hop on to someone else’s.

It’s unknown why she formed an attachment to a child, Tasha from Ancient Isles, however it is clear that Captain Briggsy enjoyed their time together as she is referenced a few times within Briggsy’s journals, going so far as showing shame that she was now cursed and glad that the girl wouldn’t see her like this.

Now a cursed Skeleton Lord, Captain Briggsy is in search for a cure and is said to be “too dangerous” for normal bounty hunters to approach as she’s been consumed by evil and is fearsome opponent to all who come across her. As a Pirate Lord in game, she has the ability to teleport, spawn waves of skeletons and command them, as well as the ability to punt people away doing high amounts of damage. However, she is killed during Tall Tales The Cursed Rogue, at which point her skull is collected and delivered to Madame Olivia who uses magic to pull out the memories and then nonchalantly discards it.
