Admiral Duckworth of Baltimus
One of only two Captain of a Man of War
The Company (British East India Company) commissions a few trusted captains as privateers. The most shrewd is the comically named Admiral Nelson Duckworth. The Admiral was a captain under Horatio Nelson in the Napoleonic period when he was transported to Caribdus.
Duckworth commands a Man of War called the HMS Justice, crewed by well-trained and highly disciplined red coats (marines). Duckworth is extremely moral. He obeys the whims of the Company as long as he deems them
honest, but won’t hesitate to turn on them if he suspects foul play.
