Brigand Kings are special brigands found occasionally when players attack red- or orange-ringed ships. No indication is given to their special status while on the ocean. Instead the brigand king makes an announcement at the start of sea battle. Once defeated the brigand king's ship disappears immediately.

Defeating a brigand king provides a special trinket particular to that king.

Old salts in the inn will provide information on the kings for their standard ten PoE fee. This information appears to be a random combination of the king's name, a stock statement, and a fruit.

List of Kings

  • Admiral Finius
