This corsair was a privateer in the waters off Florida’s coast and has plied the shorelines of the Chesapeake and North Atlantic in search of the perfect cove to bury his booty.
He is the Captain of the Defiant, a 28-foot sloop that is as fast, agile and reliable. From his den of Pirates in a private cove called Flag Harbor, he controls the shipping lanes that feed Washington and Baltimore. Because of this awesome power, the Emperor of America and the Governor of Maryland have given him Letters of Mark. So beware mariners, if you see a small sloop closing fast and flying the black, it might just be the Dread Pirate Stephen
