Biography Edit

Not much is known of the early years of Captain Bonnet. It is known that he became a well-known pirate, and even young sailors such as Henry Turner knew his name.

During 1751, the pirate stole a Dutch barque called the Ruddy Rose. The theft was eventually discovered by the British Royal Navy, and the warship Monarch was sent to chase the pirates. In an attempt to escape, the Rose sailed into the mysterious uncharted waters of the Devil's Triangle, a place surrounded with gigantic reefs and covered in eternal darkness. During the chase the Rose was flying the black pirate flag, which turned out to be a fatal mistake. When they entered the Triangle, the Rose was attacked by the ghosts of the Spanish sailors whose ship, the Silent Mary, was destroyed decades earlier in the same waters. The undead pirate hunters quickly slaughtered the entire pirate crew, presumably Bonnet as well.

Behind the scenes Edit

  • The name "Bonnet" appears to be a reference to the historical pirate Stede Bonnet. Stede Bonnet was an infamous pirate during the early eighteenth century who was also an associate of Blackbeard. Bonnet would later be captured at Sullivan's Island in South Carolina and eventually executed for his crimes.
