|Behind the scenes|
Sir Thomas Faye was a member of the East India Trading Company. Sometime after the death of Lord Cutler Beckett, he was given the task of gathering information on the world's most dangerous pirates. The result of his work was The Secret Files of the East India Trading Company.
Not much is known of Thomas Faye's early life. At some unspecified point of his life, he became a Sir and decided to join the East India Trading Company during King George II of Great Britain's reign. While serving the Company, Faye had an enormous amount of respect for Lord Cutler Beckett and Admiral James Norrington. As later recalled in his files, he called them the world's bravest and strongest men.
Faye would have been a part of Beckett's Armada, where he would have witnessed that climatic battle between the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman. Around this time, after Beckett's untimely death, Faye would at some point made an effort to gather information on the world's most dangerous pirates. The result of his work was The Secret Files of the East India Trading Company. His further fate is unknown.
In 1751, following the destruction of the Trident of Poseidon, Davy Jones came back from the dead and appeared in Elizabeth Swann' lighthouse shortly after Will Turner's curse was broken, demonstrating that Faye's assumption of his death at the battle of Calypso's maelstrom was wrong.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- Faye's book was found in the skeletal hands of a long-dead sailor in a secluded cove on Isla Cruces. It's possible that the skeleton is in fact the deceased Sir Thomas Faye, but there is no official confirmation as yet.
- It's possible that his character was inspired by author Daniel Defoe, a famous 18th century author famous for writing a similar book called A General His-Story of Pyrates.
