BEFORE YOU READ IF YOU CONSIDER HISTORY TO BE SPOILERS TO THE GAME AC4 DONT READ AND I HOPE THAT YOU LIKE IT :}







BENJAMIN HORNIGOLD

Captain Benjamin Hornigold (died 1719) was an 18th-century English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England) pirate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirate). His career lasted from 1715 to 1718, after which he turned into a pirate hunter and pursued his former allies on behalf of the Governor of the Bahamas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahamas). He was killed when his ship was wrecked on a reef during the 1719 hurricane season.

EDWARD TEACH AKA BLACKBEARD
Edward Teach (c. 1680 22 November 1718), better known as Blackbeard, was a notorious English pirate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piracy) who operated around the West Indies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Indies) and the eastern coast of the American colonies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_colonization_of_the_Americas). Although little is known about his early life, he was likely born in Bristol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol), England. He may have been a sailor on privateer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privateer) ships during Queen Anne's War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Anne%27s_War) before settling on the Bahamian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bahamas) island of New Providence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Providence), a base for Captain Benjamin Hornigold (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Hornigold), whose crew Teach joined sometime around 1716. Hornigold placed him in command of a sloop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sloop) he had captured, and the two engaged in numerous acts of piracy. Their numbers were boosted by the addition to their fleet of two more ships, one of which was commanded by Stede Bonnet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stede_Bonnet), but toward the end of 1717 Hornigold retired from piracy, taking two vessels with him.

CHARLES VANE
Charles Vane (c.1680 March 29, 1721) was an English pirate who preyed upon English and French shipping. His pirate career lasted from 17161719. His flagship was a brigantine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigantine) named the Ranger.

Vane was among the pirate captains who operated out of the notorious base at New Providence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Providence) in the Bahamas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahamas) after the British abandoned the colony during the War of Spanish Succession (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_Spanish_Succession). In 1721, after a relatively long and violent career in piracy, he was captured and was executed by hanging at Gallows Point, Port Royal, Jamaica (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Royal,_Jamaica).[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Vane#cite_note-FOOTNOTEWoodard2007234.E2.80.93240-3)

ANNE BONNY i think she was called the pirates Queen not sure tho
Anne Bonny (8 March 1702 22 April 1782) was an Irish woman who became a famous pirate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_piracy), operating in the Caribbean.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Bonny#cite_note-Carlova-1) What little is known of her life comes largely from A General History of the Pyrates (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_General_History_of_the_Pyrates)

Hornigold's definitely going to be a target. Former pirate who betrays his brethren? Sounds shady. And Charles Vane just looks shady.

Yeah, I think Bonny and Blackbeard are the only two out of those four who will remain on Edward's side. Calico Jack is also supposed to appear though, and he could go either way; he's Bonny's lover, which means he might side with Edward because she does, but if she and Edward have some sort of romantic connection (and we all know they will) that would probably cause some bad blood between the two.

My passion for this game is only history and I honestly love this game because it unrevealed pivotal moments of that particular era. I know that the life of pirates are not like that of which we know. There is no captain carrying a parrot on his shoulder. Yeaph this game would definitely be different to other pirates game. And I m sure that Hornigold's is the main antagonist in this game.
