- "You can make your fortune whatever you desire, Nathaniel."
- ―Malcolm Hatcher to Nathaniel Hawk before his retirement
Malcolm Hatcher was a Boatswain and the First Mate aboard the Victory, a small trading vessel, when it arrived in Oxbay in 1630. Malcolm retired to Oxbay in order to live a quiet life on land, but shortly after his arrival a French squadron assaulted and occupied Oxbay.
Malcolm remained on Oxbay until its liberation. During that time, he was always around to give his former captain advice, and even helped him fight off the French troops.
