In the cutthroat world of piracy, few pirate captains become powerful enough to command an entire fleet. Those who do often dub themselves king or queen of their fleet. Pirates led by such leaders become dangerous forces feared by merchants and navies that share the seas.

The pirate king Voralis and the dwarven “Princess” Anabett Deadeye control two of the most feared pirate fleets in recent history, Voralis in the Shiaran sea and Deadeye in the eastern Argentus ocean.
