This Albatross, known formerly as The Scourge, is the flagship of Rabid Jack, the infamous pirate captain that attacked Mos Le'Harmless recently in the Fifth Age.

This Albatross was first known as "The Scourge". Jack used the ship as his main offensive centre when he attacked Mos Le'Harmless in an effort to gain complete control over the Eastern Sea. When this failed, Jack renamed his ship "This Albatross", which he said would be a curse upon pirates forever.

Eventually, the pirates of Mos Le'Harmless rallied under Gentleman Mallard and attacked Jack in his hideout in the Cursed Archipelago. Eventually the battle became centred around This Albatross, where Jack finally jumped overboard, seemingly to his death.

Although the ship was likely destroyed after the battle, recent activity suggests the ship may have been revived along with its captain.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name of the ship is a reference to the albatross in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. In the poem, a curse falls on a ship's crew when the mariner kills an albatross that had led them through ice fields. Becalmed and suffering from thirst, the crew hangs the dead albatross around the mariner's neck to mark him as the man who brought the curse down on them.
