Ramsey Singh, better known as the Pirate Lord, is the ghostly founder of the Athena's Fortune company in Sea of Thieves. Ramsey is known for captaining the first voyage through The Devil's Shroud and discovering The Sea of Thieves. For his legendary deeds on the Sea of Thieves, he was named the Pirate Lord.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Ramsey Singh is one of the first pirates to plunder the Sea of Thieves. Realizing that incoming pirates would be subject to the curses in the lands' treasures, he created chests and keys from the unbreaking chains used to chain the first Kraken called the Old Mother. For a time, he solely possessed the required skeleton keys to open these chests, however, he was betrayed by his crewmate, Rathbone, who took the keys for his own and eventually formed the Gold Hoarders Trading Company, who use the keys to open any of the magically locked Treasure Chests for a share of their contents.
Ramsey earned the title Pirate Lord for his fearsome nature and glorious deeds on the seas. As the Pirate Lord, he became the leader of an Alliance of Pirates, working together to unravel the mysteries of The Sea of Thieves. After his death, Ramsey earned eternal life as a greenish-tinted ghost, most likely thanks to the cursed necklace of the Reaper's Mark, inherited to him by his long time crew-member Mercia.
He remains in the Sea of Thieves, in a hidden cavern that houses the Athena's Fortune Hideout, the tavern of which is built from the Athena's Fortune shipwreck, once the flagship of his alliance, and named after Ramsey's wife, Athena. There he runs the Athena's Fortune company, selling Legendary Voyages and tales with pirates of Legendary Repute.
As the renowned Pirate Lord, Singh wields a sword with great skill and studies the Ancients with utmost curiosity. He is also very knowledgeable on how the Sea of Thieves works to the point where he has limited control of the Devil's Shroud itself, peeling it away enough for new pirates to ingress safely.
Singh is very aware of the dangers imposed by his enemies, the Skeleton Lords, and tasks new adventurers to deal with them, fearing that the enemies’s greed would take over the Sea of Thieves and diminish the free-roaming spirit that he held so dearly to.
