"The King and his men stole the queen from her bed. And bound her in her bones. The seas be ours, and by the powers. Where we will...we'll roam."
―Cabin Boy[src]

This child worked as a cabin boy around the time when Lord Cutler Beckett attempted to eradicate piracy on the Seven Seas. The Cabin Boy was one of many persons associated with pirates that were executed at Fort Charles. Before he was hanged, the Cabin Boy sung Hoist the Colours, which ultimately resulted in the fourth meeting of the Brethren Court, and the defeat of Lord Beckett.


Not much is known of this boy's life, only that he became a cabin boy at a young age. At some point, the cabin boy was imprisoned and sentenced for execution by the East India Trading Company under strict statutes introduced by Lord Cutler Beckett. He was brought to Fort Charles in Port Royal, and lined up to be hung at the gallows in the central courtyard.[2] Prior to this, the boy had obtained a piece of eight, which resonated with the call put forth by Hector Barbossa to rally the Brethren Court at Shipwreck Cove.[3]

Cabin Boy AWE

The cabin boy at the gallows.

While awaiting his time to hang, the boy began mournfully singing Hoist the Colours as the executioner found a crate for him to stand on, in order to reach the noose. The song was picked up by the entire assembly of prisoners, and ultimately resulted in the fourth meeting of the Brethren, and the defeat of Lord Beckett. But the boy, however, was duly executed along with the many prisoners, dropping his coin to the ground.[2]
