Romantically involved with and sailing on the crew of Calico Jack Rackham. Anne Bonny is a female pirate fighting in men’s clothing, an expert with pistol and sword, considered as dangerous as any male pirate. She is fearless in battle and often is a member of a boarding party.

The daughter of an attorney and his Maid. The lawyer left Ireland in disgrace but found fortune in the Carolinas. There, he amassed a fortune and bought a large plantation.

A ne’er-do-well pirate/sailor named James Bonny married Anne in an attempt to steal the plantation but Anne’s father instead disowned her. Bonny then took Anne to the Bahamas where he turned informer to Governor Woodes Rogers, turning in any sailor he didn’t like as a pirate for a handsome reward.

Anne quickly grew to dislike her spineless husband and quickly caught the eye of one Calico Jack Rackham, a pirate of some renown. Governor Rogers had recently passed an amnesty for pirates which left Bonny out of work. The admiration between Anne and Calico was mutual. Calico Jack a handsome man who knew how to spend money as well as steal it. Anne was a well endowed lass with a fiery spirit and a temper that matched that of any man.

Calico offered to buy Anne from Bonny but Bonny instead took the matter up with Governor Rogers, who had Anne flogged and returned to her true husband.

That night Calico and Anne slipped out in the harbor, stole a sloop and began a life of piracy together.

But retribution is close at hand. The governor hearing of Calico’s treachery has sent an armed sloop captained by James Bonny to hunt the Captain and crew.
