The Captain

Swab the decks and hoist the main sail, this build is for any pirate enthusiasts with an affinity for Cannons, Hoarding Treasure or sending filthy landlubbers to Davey Jones’ Locker.

Your fearsome pirate nature lets you control others and beckon them to your swashbuckling ways, what’s a Captain without her crew? You’ll be using the Intimidation Perk with your Broadsider to threaten and recruit all manner of commonwealth buccaneer. As well as being a fearsome melee combatant, you can further enhance your abilities with alcohol!


The Captain was a simple girl from boston, she grew up with her father as her mother passed away during childbirth. Her father was an avid fisherman and often took his daughter on fishing trips. He taught her not only how to fish but how to manoeuvre a boat and sail in rough waters. The Captain was just 16 years old when her father fell terminally ill and she had to take up law to get a job that paid enough to look after her dying father. She became obsessed with money in a frenzy to gather enough to pay her father’s medical bills. Eventually after finishing her law degree, she met a handsome man called Nate in one of the student bars. The two got together and happily married before her father inevitably passed away. It was at that point the Captain finally felt she could move on with her life and decided to have a child. Her family was somewhat whole again before that dreaded October day when the Captain was rushed into Vault 111.
