Considerably older than he looked, Stitcher Jim had lied and cheated his way through life since before the Sea of Thieves even had a name of its own. He often allowed history to swallow up his misdeeds before returning to commit some new treachery in another master’s name. This was the case when he betrayed the Forsaken Shores Alliance, letting them perish in the ash-filled air of The Devil’s Roar, then took a brief role among the Bilge Rats to mislead others into doing Flameheart’s bidding.
Eventually his luck had to come to an end. After being transformed into the raging Herald of the Flame only to be overthrown by allies of the Pirate Lord, his skull was stolen away by The Reaper’s Bones for use in a ritual intended to resurrect the villainous Flameheart.
