Captain Briggsy

An adventurous rogue and thrill-seeker whose greatest adventure came to a tragic end.

Briggsy was a young maverick in the first days of the Sea of Thieves; a wild and impulsive pirate who cared more about adventuring and exploring than hoarding treasure. She became known for the exhilarating tales she would tell of her exploits, to rapt audiences including a young and impressionable Tasha. Eventually, like Grace Morrow before her, Briggsy was able to locate a Shroudbreaker, using it to reach the fabled Shores of Gold.

Once there, however, she succumbed to the cursed treasure found below the island and was transformed into a Skeleton Lord. She then encountered the Gold Hoarder, who promised her a cure if she agreed to do his bidding. Fearful that she was now an outcast, Briggsy reluctantly agreed to serve him, though she defied his orders and merely hid the Shroudbreaker’s pieces rather than destroying it.
