Captain Luka Silvaro is a Pirate captain of a company called the Reivers. [1a]

Appearance

A tall, massively built man with a forked black goatee and a thick mane of curly, greying hair tied back in a pigtail and grey eyes.[1a]

History

Whenever his second in command, his half-brother Guido Silvaro played him wrong, he took a finger from him. [1a][1c]

The Scalabra under captain Hernan nearly captured him in the Straits of the Gorgon but Silvaro managed to defeat him leaving his ship on fire with sixty dead. He would meet the same captain at Aguilas five years later and fight a duel, which he won although Hernan pledged to try again in a years time and once the Butcher Ship was destroyed. [1h]

He was captured after a battle with two warships from Luccini and the company thought he had been executed or at best imprisoned. [1b]However the Prince of the city offered him and his crew amnesty, a thousand Crowns each and a Letter of Marque if he could find and destroy the Butcher Ship attacking all vessels at sea. [1e] He returned to Sartosa with Sesto Sciortini and reclaimed his ships, taking a hand from Guido. [1b]

Silvaro encountered Muhannad Ru'af whilst searching for the Butcher Ship and although he sought to parley, the Corsair vessels suddenly attacked under the plain red flags signifying no mercy. [1d] However most of the Corsars were weak, undernourished and full of scurvy and so were outmatched by the pirate crews who sank the Tariq and left the Badarra burning and adrift. Ru'ef himself was captured and questioned, revealing that the Butcher Ship had emptied the seas. [1e]

He then discovered the wrecked ship of Reyno Bloodlock, the Sacramento and were confronted by what seemed to be a Daemon on shore. Silvaero convinced his Ebonian Helmsman to use the magics he had sworn off to bind it. [1f] They discovered it was in fact the remnant of Captain Bloodlock, cursed by the Butcher Ship and who told them that it was commanded by what had been Red Henri, another notorious pirate. [1g]

Having captured the Demiurge and repaired their vessels at Aguilas‎‎, he discovered Guido had stowed away but he survived to become master of the renewed Demiurge. However he then sabotaged the Rumour, kidnapped Sciortini and sailed away much to the fury of his brother. [1i]

Silvo enlisted the help of the legendary pirate Jeremiah Tusk[1j] and recaptured the Demiurge,[1k] making Guido walk the plank again this time to his death. [1l] After an encounter with a great sea monster, Tusk gave him the Bite of Daagon, the rune inscribed tooth of a Megalodon. [1m]

With the aid of the powerful artefact he was able to successfuly fight his prey, [1n] although many of his crew and allies died. Finally he found the source of the curse - a a sarcophagus from Khemri and was able to finally break it by flinging the entombed boy-kings amulet into the ocean.[1o]

He then decided that he would not take the pardon and Privateers licence but remain a pirate. [1o]

Ships

  • The Rumour: A two masted twenty-gun, two hundred tonne brigantine, one hundred paces long at the keel. [1c]
  • The Safire: A twelve gun sloop, sixty paces long, often commanded by Guido. [1c]

Quotes

I wonder, my friend, when all’s said and done, if I’ll not have trouble being respectable.....Jeremiah willed me his cross. I think I might sail to it. I could then reward the Reivers better than any Prince of Luccini. What say you?

~ Luka to Sesto.[1p]
