The Sisters of the Sea
Even the most experienced Captains run when they see the Sisters' flag on the horizon.
Captain Etta Maxime is the head of the organisation. People on the outside refer to her as The Pirate Queen but that term is not used within the Sisters. Only five unique ships have been seen flying the flag of The Sisters and Captain Maxime herself has only been spotted in the last couple of years when seeking a particularly lucrative target. This means she has at least five other women promoted to the rank of Captain since there have been sightings of all five ships but without Maxime at any helm.
Originally, the mandate was to prove to men that having female crew on their ships was not a curse. Now, those same men fear women in a completely different way. The Sisters were successful in their original objective as now women are welcomed upon any crew, in part due to the superstition that if the Sisters catch you and you have women on your crew, they are more likely to let you live.
- 5 ships
- 120-200 women based on eyewitness accounts, accounting for naturally inflated numbers from people trying to save face with their employers.
- The value of their plundering successes is estimated to be northwards of 50,000 gold's worth of money and gemstones at this point. How much of this still in gold or gem form is unknown. They have also acquired several high value pieces of art, statues and other treasured artefacts. The market value of these items would roughly double the total worth of the organisation if sold. It is also highly likely that there are many unrecorded items that the Sisters have liberated from their owners, to which a monetary estimate can not be applied.
