Originally, this ship was The Man’s Promise and was captained by Melissa Khan, a popular Alarisian Naval Officer but the ship was attacked by the notorious pirate lord, Captain Harrigan and his band of cut-throats aboard the Wormwood and Captain Khan died defending her ship.
Eventually the ship was sailed by a skeleton crew led by the Wormwood ‘s first mate, Mr. Plugg to Port Blacksand. Along the way, the skeleton crew mutinied and took over the ship themselves. Led by joint Captains Mameha and Edward, the crew of the Man’s Promise began their own careers as pirates in their own right.
A minimum crew of 20 is required to sail the Magnificent Bastard.
