"No.....She's sailing straight toward us....OPEN FIRE!"
―Toms correcting one of his Officers[src]

Toms was a captain of the British Royal Navy. He captained the Monarch and in 1751, he chased the Dutch barque Ruddy Rose into the Devil's Triangle, despite the warnings of his shipboy Henry Turner, whom Toms considered crazy. However, ignoring the young Turner made him pay with his own life, as upon entering the Devil's Triangle, the terrific Capitán Armando Salazar and his crew attacked Toms' crew and subsequently, Salazar strangled Toms and threw his body to the flames.

Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Not much is known of Toms' early life. At some unspecified point, Toms became an officer of the British Royal Navy and later became captain of the Monarch. Toms' main task was to hunt pirates, so he enlisted a crew for his ship, which included First Officer Wade, Officer Cole and the young sailor Henry Turner, and sailed several times in search of pirates to hunt.[2]

The hunt for the Ruddy Rose Edit

In 1751, Toms captained the Monarch to hunt down the Ruddy Rose, a Dutch barque captained by the fearsome Captain Bonnet, in the Atlantic Ocean. However, the young Henry Turner, upon realizing that they were heading to the Devil's Triangle, ran to warn Toms, telling him that they will avoid entering the Triangle since several ships that entered there would not come out. While several of the sailors onboard reminded Toms that these stories were true, Toms denied changing the direction of the ship and ordered his men to lock Turner in a cell for "attempting mutiny".[2]


Salazar kills British captain

However, once the Monarch entered the Devil's Triangle, Toms' crew discovered the remains of Bonnet's Dutch barque, concluding that Turner was right. But it was too late, because the terrible and ghostly Capitán Armando Salazar and his ghost crew appeared on the scene, annihilating the Crew of the Monarch and setting fire to the ship. Toms managed to get captured by the Crew of the Silent Mary, who kept him alive so that their Capitan may deal with him. As Salazar made his way toward Toms, he asked "What are you?" Salazar then grabbed Toms by the throat and responded "Death" before snapping the Officer's neck and throwing him into the fires below.[2]
