I’ve been doing a bit of casual reading about real-life pirates and privateers in order to be able to write about the Ravagers more effectively! Here are two things I have learned:
- French privateer Jean Bart once tied his own son to the mast during a sea battle to “cure him of fear”
- Pirates who stole from members of their own crew were usually either marooned or shot
Peter got off really lightly growing up as a space pirate, apparently.
