The Islandwrecker Fleet are the most notorious group of sky pirates in the entire Sky Ocean, known for being able to fight entire nations and being bold enough to try to "sink" islands. The fleet is led by a pirate crew known as the Islandwrecker Pirates (formerly the Islandsinker Pirates, and before that, the Bloody Dawn Pirates).
Organization of the FleetCurrently, the Islandwrecker Fleet consists multiple pirate crews, each with its own pirate captain. These captains report directly to the captain of the Islandwrecker Pirates, who is the leader of the whole fleet.
Organization of each Pirate CrewThe strict hierarchy of the Islandwrecker Pirates serves as a model for the leadership of their subservient crews.
First MateThe first mate is the captain's second in command. Their word is considered to be the same as the captain.
QuartermasterThe quartermaster is in charge of day-to-day affairs and enforcing the captain's orders. They are also in charge of dividing up anything the crew plunders. Because of the large scope and importance of their jurisdiction, they can give orders that are only superseded by the captain (and first mate).
BoatswainThe boatswain is in charge of the airship itself. They can give any orders they deem necessary to keep the airship afloat unless it would directly contradict the captain.
DoctorThe doctor is in charge of the crew's health and well-being. Similar to the boatswain, they can give orders necessary to help perform their medical duties unless it would directly contradict the captain.
"Take everything we can and destroy everything else." The Islandwrecker Pirates want to collect everything valuable or useful to their life of piracy. In the event they cannot obtain something, they will destroy it or otherwise prevent anyone else from taking it, preventing any potential enemies from using it against them.
Bloody Dawn PiratesThe original crew comprised of Captain Chillhook (the widow of the head of a small crime family), two of the captain's underlings, Pinkbeard (an engineer who helped design a prototype airship that used the juices of world tree fruit as fuel), one of the engineer's assistants, and two ex-adventurers that were kicked from their adventuring guild. They became one of the first sky pirate crews after stealing the prototype airship that Pinkbeard helped design and plundering nearby floating islands, calling themselves the Bloody Dawn Pirates.
Islandsinker PiratesA few years into their career, the Bloody Dawn Pirates' ship was damaged and forced to crash on a small floating island. There, they took the materials needed to rebuild their ship, and eventually, took the island's sole air-affinity world tree fruit to refuel their ship. This caused the island to fall into the Wilderness, killing nearly all of its inhabitants. The incident was the first time an island had fallen into the Wilderness, causing the Bloody Dawn Pirates to gain notoriety across nearly the whole Sky Ocean. Their outcriers dubbed them the "islandsinkers" for this massive crime, and the crew embraced this new name. For a time, the Islandsinker Pirates didn't commit any major crimes, instead relying on their fierce reputation to coerce islands into handing over what they needed or occasionally plundering coastal towns for supplies.
Islandwrecker FleetAt some point, the Captain Chillhook went missing, and there was internal conflict over who would succeed her as the new captain. Eventually, a dragonborn, who took on the name Captain Stormbreath around this time, managed to reunite the Islandsinker Pirates under a new mantle: the Islandwrecker Pirates, planning to once again begin causing islands to sink to the Wilderness after pillaging them of all their wealth and resources. After rallying other pirate crews under him, Captain Stormbreath established the Islandwrecker Fleet and was able to defeat a whole nation and then sunk their island. Over the course of a decade, the fleet managed to pillage and sink three more islands.
