- "Just up the road, quick left, and you're at the bayou shack of the beautifully odd Tia Dalma."
"I'm no fool, Jack Sparrow. I know the mystic is not so easy to find."
- ―Jack Sparrow and Royce
- "Let us bargain. You get this 15-pound sack of gold, and in return I'm shown the way."
"I enter into this agreement with a note of caution: there is no guarantee we will find Tia Dalma."
- ―Royce and Jack Sparrow
Nothing is known about Royce's early life, or how he even became an admiral. In the 1740s, he acquired a map that will lead him to the shack of Tia Dalma, the most famous voodoo priestess in the Caribbean.
He also assured the assistance of the notorious pirate Jack Sparrow, the man who knew the lands around the Pantano River very well. When Royce's ship docked at the mouth of the river, Royce, Jack, and some of Royce's crewmen came ashore to find Tia Dalma.
Their journey wasn't long. Shortly after going into the Cypress Forest, the expedition was ambushed by a group of angry natives. During the fight, Royce's map of the forest was stolen by the attackers.
Equipment and skills
Royce was a skilled swordsman, which he proved when his crew was ambushed in the Cypress Forest. He easily fought against numerous attackers, despite being heavily outnumbered.
