Biography

Early life

Ziggy Cardon was born in Belgium on Valentines day 1712.

VOC sign,(Verenigde Oost Indisch Compagnie) Dutch East India Trading Companie, the biggest companie of his time, even bigger then the EITC.

Before he became a pirate he worked as a bartender but his dream was to sail the seas and explore the world. He often travelled to Holland, where he became a fisherman in a fishersvillage called Volendam but he wanted to see more from the seas then just the Zuiderzee. So one day in 1727 he went to Zealand and he signed up to join the VOC. From then on he worked for the VOC and he served on the VOC ship the Batavia. For 2 years he sailed under the VOC until the ship where was part of the crew of was attacked and sunk by a Spanish

fleet and sunk off the coast of Jamaica. He and 3 other crewmembers survived, but were put in prison on Rambleshack by the Spanish. It's in that prison he met Jack Sparrow who helped him to escape the prison together with the 3 other surviving crewmembers, Stormhound Henri, James Darkbones and Jason Brawlroberts. After escaping prison and the Jolly Roger they all decided to become pirates, Ziggy became the leader of the surviving crew and Stormhound Henri became his first mate. Ziggy also got his first ship, a light sloop called the Blue Phoenix, and when he got away from Port Royal and arrived in Tortuga, he became a member of Matt's Militia Co., around that time he also bought a new ship, a light galleon called the Black Banshee and he got the Sword Of Triton.

Mutiny

After 2 weeks of being the leader of the the crews survivers, jealousy began to fire within the first mate Stormhound. This was because Ziggy was their leader and was much stronger than Stormhound, so he was planning mutiny together with the two other crewmembers. It was very early in the Caribbean, and the Caribbean sea was almost empty, so quiet it was. Ziggy was onboard his ship the Banshee together with his three crewmembers. His ship, the phoenix, already sunk a few minutes before, and the first mate Stormhound asked Ziggy if he could steer the ship, Ziggy said ok and let him steer, but Stormhound went with the light Galleon to an Navy Vanguard, but no one but Ziggy was fighting back, so his ship sunk. Then when they were back in Tortuga,

Ziggy Cardon marooned on Rumrunners Island.

James said that we go sailing with his ship, and without repairing his two ships, Ziggy went onboard. But James didn't want to sink ships like he had said. Now they sailed to Rumrunners island and made port, but then they went all away and left Ziggy on that island, alone, without a Ship or Teleport Totem, on a quiet sea. Ziggy had to wait a long time before a public ship passed by. But when one passed by, he went onboard and asked is they would take him to land, they did and made port at Padres Del Fuego. Ziggy let his two ships repair by the shipwright and the three mutineers, they were never seen again, they were probaly attacked by Jolly Roger and died a horrible death...

Privateering

While Ziggy Cardon is making progress in his pirate career, he discovered something. He already saw sometimes Spanish ship sailing by, but now he had discovered that there's a war between

the French and the Spanish in Caribbean. After this discovery he sailed immediately to Ile d'Etable de Porc. He signed up as a privateer in service of the French because he will have his revenge against the Spanish who sunk the VOC ship he was on.

But during Ziggy's 10 year absence something changed, his city was sacked and occupied by the french in 1740 he vowed to never sail under french colors again and joined the Spanish who rekindled their relations with the Netherlands.

officer and gunner David Scurvygull. David liked to go on adventures together with Ziggy, he helped him everytime and had been on almost every adventure of Ziggy's, but now his most trusted crewmember is missing. disappeared without a trace. probably was kidnapped by the EITC who are now holding him imprisoned on some secret location. Ziggy would like to have his good friend back on his side but he has no idea where to start searching and he became desperate and his compass can't help because lately he doesnt know what he wants, he want to free the Pearl but not without his most loyal crewmember, he wants to find the cursed and legendary blades of El Patron but to do that he would need a right hand to help him and he wants to save his best friend but he don't have any clue how to. He's in a hard love situation with a girl from his past which he still loves. He just can't chose between quests, so because his compass doesn't show what he wants most, and he doesn't want to do anything without his friend, he's now only training his skills and making potions or working in the faithfull bride and telling his story to people who want to listen. hoping for the return of his friend. But there might be more friends for Ziggy out there which became pirate who are soon going to cross his path...

Adventures and Travels

Ziggy's main purpose was to free the Black Pearl from the Navy,

The Black Pearl waiting to be rescued

because besides his own ship the Cobra, his favourite was the Pearl because she stands for nothing less than freedom, because that's what the Black Pearl is: Freedom and now she was captured that freedom for all pirates was gone but Ziggy freed her. Ziggy Cardon also likes travelling, to just visit random islands and to sometimes just swim in the nice warm Caribbean waters. He also likes to go on treasure hunts to find beautiful valuables.

Ghost hunt

He likes to hunt the red ghost on Raven's Cove, he still remember the first time on Raven's Cove... he saw a red light, it came closer and it said "are you a ghost?" Ziggy was trying to say "No, are you?", and when he said it, the ghost came and in an eye blink he was knocked out.

Ziggy Cardon has also been trapped into Davy Jones Locker, when his ship sunk during privateering, his ship was lying there on a desert of sand. But he had an idea by doing an up is down, so the ship would turn and he could escape from the locker.

Queen Anne's revenge Fight

It was very early in the Caribbean sea, it was very quiet, there wasn't even a single soul in Tortuga when Captain Ziggy Cardon went sailing with his

beloved Cobra. While there he saw the Queen Anne's Revenge, not a single pirate ship on the horizon, so the temptation became too strong, so he went after the Revenge, with not a single man on his ship. he had to dock 7 times to repair and it took 42 minutes to sink her, but off coast of Ile d'Etable De Porc she sunk. The Cobra didn't even have to board her, she just sunk, without another pirate or pirateship to help him.

Raven's Cove Quest

Jack Sparrow tells Ziggy about Raven's Cove


After almost completing his quest for saving the Black Pearl, Ziggy got another quest, Jack told him about a rumblockade near Raven's Cove and about a Lost Legendary Sword of one called El Patron. Will Ziggy reveal the secrets of the scary place called Raven's Cove. A place that's according to him carries a story, a Big Story?!?!

ed to Raven's Cove and the trip there didn't go that well. This was because Ziggy was attacked and chased by a ship. Not a Navy ship or an EITC, not even a ship from the Jolly Roger, no. The Queen Anne's Revenge chased Ziggy's beloved Cobra himself. But Ziggy was faster and sailed with the Revenge behind her to Raven's Cove. The wind was on his side so Ziggy robbed the advantage of the Revenge, and escaped from this legendary and deadly ship. And arrived at the Cove free and save, with only a bit damage on the hull of his beloved Cobra.

Then he came aboard the Pearl, and he was like "wow, finally on the Black Pearl. A dream come to live." he went straight to the wheel while his men where killing the officers that where guarding

Then four Navy Panthers came and Ziggy took also a cannon and sunk together with his crew the 4 Panthers, he took the helm again and sailed her towards the forts, his crew destroyed the first forts. And after they sailed through the river which was guarded by many forts, they reached open sea. But the Goliath was waiting for the Pearl. But Ziggy had a good tactic, because the Pearl was heavily damaged he sail to the Goliath's bow and Ziggy made sure she would only point her bow to the Pearl the entire time so she could not hit the Pearl with cannonfire. Ziggy's tactic worked well and they sunk the Goliath and freed the Pearl.

American Adventures - Ziggy Cardon and The Golden City

Captain Ziggy Cardon Is Back

You might haven't seen him for 15 days in the Caribbean, well that's because he was on an adventure in North America, here's the story.

Chapter One: Arrivel At The West Coast

Ziggy Arrives in a small Spanish Colony called Los Angeles.

The town is actually very small but the Spanish says it has a lot of potential to become a huge colony.

It’s unlikely to find an adventure in this small Spanish town thinks Ziggy, but in a small dock he met a fisherman

called Pablo Rodriquez, and he asked Ziggy to a trip on sea to show him the area and the lots of animals the West Coast have to offer, on their trip the see huge Blue whales and a lot of Grey Whales, Pablo says ‘this is one of the few spots to see whales because everywhere else whale hunters hunt them down, but because this area is still unknown aren’t here any Whale Hunters.” They also see some wild Sea Lions and lots of Dolphins and Sea Birds. And during the fishing they catch some Mola Mola’s . When they where sailing back to the coast Pablo told Ziggy about a legend of a gold city of Montalvo. And Ziggy became interested, and he asked more about the city. So Pablo started to tell the story…

“There is a story, of a city of gold from the Uto-Aztecs; the builder of the city was called Montalvo. Montalvo saw himself as the most powerfull emperor in the world, so he build 3 Cities, not build out of stone, but gold. He wanted his cities to be as great and wonderful as himself. But after some point he saw himself even bigger as the Gods, so they destroyed the 2nd and 3th city, Montalvo himself was cursed and his spirit was put in a golden skull, hidden underneath the Sun Temple of his biggest and only remaining golden city. But the city went lost wh-

ourney. Hernan Cortes had send a few conquistadores to find the cities, the troop was lead by Humberto Diaz, also a famous conquistador who disappeared in the Caribbean along with his lost weapons, the legend says his ghost hunt some island in the Caribbean, But he returned from the golden city, he saw it, but he told it was guarded, by undead Indians, zombies, Cursed Indians and a few fearsome monsters, only Humberto and one of his crewmen called Foulberto Smasho returned. Humberto Diaz is one of the only who saw the city and returned, you might have heard of him”

Ziggy interrupts “yeah I know him, I’ve seen the island a few times, it’s called Raven’s Cove. But do you know where that city is?”

Pablo “Ha, nobody knows where it is, that’s why they call it an LOST city, hahaha”

Ziggy “and you have no idea where it could be?”

Pablo “Do I look like I have been to the city, I’m a fisherman, if I know where it was, I would probably be king, But there’s an man more North East wards that lives next to the Colorado River that says he know where it is, If he is telling the truth? I don’t know”

Ziggy “But we can ask it can we? You know the way to that man?”

Pablo “I would like to guide you to him, Ever been to the Gran Canyon?”

So they grab 2 horses and ride to the North East to the man in the Gran Canyon.

Chapter Two: The Journey To The Canyon.

Ziggy & Pablo traveled through the desert to the Gran Canyon. This land was n

The Place where they made their camp.

ew to Ziggy, he only knew the Forest and Grasslands from Belgium, and the Tropical Rainforests from the Caribbean, he never been to a Desert before. They traveled a whole day now and in 1 day they reach the Colorado River that lies in The Canyon, where the mysterious man lives. When it became dark, they settled camp in the desert. Ziggy decided to take a walk, But then Ziggy hears a strange sound, he walks through it, But then all of a sudden someth

Drawing The Rattlesnake

ing jumps out of the bushes and tries to bite him, he take his pistol and shoot it, it was a rattle snake that tried to attack him. Pablo runs towards him and asked what that shot was, then he sees the rattle snake and takes a breath of relieve, and says “oh lucky it’s only a rattle snake, I though you where attack by an Indian”. Then sees Pablo something, something that’s written on a rock, they both step towards a rock and they see some drawings on it, has this something to do with the Golden City? Ziggy says “These things look like they are human but they also look like they not from this world, what are they?”

The Rock Carving of The Gods that Ziggy & Pablo found in the desert

Pablo “This are the Gods of the Uto-Aztecs, they believed they came from above, in these great floating ships, and the Uto-Aztecs and many other tribes worshipped them. These Gods as they called them gave them knowledge about lots of stuff such as in astrology, math and technology. They told the people how to build the pyramids, but then they left and the people made more monuments for them. But for so far we know they never returned… But who believes all that, it’s just a stupid story.”

Ziggy “no no, may by there’s some truth in this story, cause the 2 golden cities where destroyed, and Montalvo’s spirit is in a skull, so why won’t it be true?”

Pablo “You don’t believe this, do you? You’re not telling me that you believe in the supernatural do you?”

Ziggy “Well I’ve seen a thing or two, and by the way, if we didn’t believe it we wouldn’t be looking for it, aye? People should believe more in the supernatural. Because people don’t believe any more a lot of the magic of the world start to disappear.”

Pablo “Maybe you’re right, come let’s get back to camp, tomorrow we arrive in the Canyon.”

Chapter Three: The Mysterious Man In The Canyon

The sun goes down in 3 hours and they finally reach the Gran Canyon. On

Chief Crazy Donkey

that same moment they are surrounded by Pueblo Indians. And a big man that appears to be their chief steps forwards and ask what they come doing there. Ziggy takes the word because Pablo can’t talk from fright and says that they are looking for a man that lives in the Canyon,

Chief “What is that man his name?”

Ziggy “Pablo what was that guy his name again?”

Pablo “Euh it was Hector, i mean Henry Gonzales.”

Chief “Henry…”

Ziggy “You know him?”

Chief “Yeah he was a very good friend from mine”

Ziggy “Was?”

Chief “yeah, he died a few months ago, he fell from the rocks.”

Ziggy “Ow we didn’t know that, that’s horrible.”

Chief “Indeed, but maybe I can help you, he was my best friend, I ha

ve great respect for him, it would be a honor to help you two. Come my tribe will give you a great welcome.”

When they arrived to the tribe’s camp, there’s a great buffet with lots and lots of meat, even Bison meat that the hunters caught today. Ziggy and Pablo get lots of food and lots of presents from the tribe. Ziggy got a necklace with skulls made from bones of bisons and a deer, a small warrior axe and a spear point.

Chief “So how you two are called?”

Ziggy “well I’m Captain Ziggy Cardon, and my friend here is Pablo Rodriquez”

Chief “well my name is Chief Wild Donkey, and where are you from?”

Ziggy “I’m from Belgium but I live in the Caribbean now, and my friend here’s from Los Angeles, a small colony a bit more to the coast”

Chief “ow, and why did you need Henry for?”

Ziggy “Well, we’re looking for Montalvo’s Golden City, and we’ve heard he knew the location.”

Chief “The Golden City, The City which the Gods tried to destroy, but failed while doing i

t. It’s a dangerous place to go to, Legends say that it’s guarded by undead creatures and cursed warriors and a few monsters like the Quetzalcoatl. Be warned”

Ziggy “But you can help us?”

Chief “I’m sorry, I’m afraid I can’t help you, But I know someone who can, Henry had a map, but he hide it, but he told his daughter so many stories, so she might knows where the map is hidden.”

Ziggy “Where can we find her?”

Chief “I will show you where Selena lives.”

Chapter Four: meeting Selena

After a 25 min walk they arrive at a small shack. It reminds Ziggy on his cottage in Tortuga, Ziggy smiles because it looks a lot it. Then the chief disturbs Ziggy’s dreamy moment and shout “Selena, you have visitors” Then Selena comes out, and Ziggy is stunned when he sees her, she’s so beautiful, with her long dark hair, that beautiful face shape, and those eyes where you would fall In love with immediately, and that mouth that ask for a kiss, Ziggy is for the first time speechless. Pablo asked “Is everything all right, I’ve never seen you so quiet?” Ziggy wakes up of his daydream again and says “eh what? Ow yeah, hey I’m Ziggy Cardon, You are?” on which Selena answers “I’m Selena Gonzales, you would know no? You came to visit me, come we go inside, is he always that weird?” on witch Pablo answers “first time I see him like this” Then they enter the shack and Ziggy is still a bit stunned. “So why did you come to visit me?” then Pablo says “Well we actually came to visit your father but we heard that he died, so the chief told us you could help us maybe?” “Go on” says Selena. “We’ve heard that your father believed that he saw the legendary Golden City of Montalvo, and that he knew the way to it, So we want to start an expedition to search the city, and maybe you can guide us?” on which Selena answers quiet aggressive, “and why would I guide you to that city, I haven’t lost anything there, so why would I like to go there, it drove my father crazy!” Selena starts to cry a little, on which Ziggy takes the word from Pablo and says “Because of that, because it drove your father crazy, because nobody believed him, you could prove everybody wrong that didn’t believe him, and you can prove that he wasn’t mad, but genius. Do it for him, he would have wanted you to see it.” On which Se

vieuw over the Gran Canyon

lena quietly asks “You think” on which Ziggy says “I know it for sure, so do you think you can help us to The Golden City?” on which Selena answers “Yeah I think I can help you, my father told me he hide a map, to the first clue and I know where it lies, it’s somewhere I used to play where I was little, come” Selena and Ziggy run out the shack full of joy, you can feel the happiness in the 2 persons, Pablo and the chief look to each other and follow Selena and Ziggy who are far ahead of them. Selena and Ziggy are still running, know with a great view over the Gran Canyon which lies next to them, the chief and Pablo gave up the running and are stepping now. Selena and Ziggy are now on the place that Selena meant; a flat piece of rock on the edge of the canyon, with a great view. Selena says with lot of energy in her voice “It’s in that crack there” Selena take out the map and she and Ziggy open the map, “the map leads to an area called Nova Albion, the area is from the British but there is a Indian Tribe called the Ohlone tribe, my father knew them well and he hide the next clue there” Pablo and the chief are now also on the rock formation and looking to the map too. And Pablo says,” ow you found the map, so how far is it?” on which Selena answers “It’s a tree day journey to an Area that belongs to the British.” The chief and Pablo are in shock, they both hate the British, the chief heard many stories from British who attacked and whipped out many Indian tribes and Pablo hate the British too, cause they are enemies of the Spanish. So their next destination is a very dangerous one, with a lot of dangers on their way.

Chapter five: It's not the destination, so much as the journey.

Ziggy, Pablo and Selena are saying goodbye to the pueblo tribe and grab 3

a Corrupt Stump

horses and start their long journey to the dangerous Nova Albion. It’s a journey through desert, mountains, rivers and forests.
After a journey through the desert they have reached a forest. After a while in that forest they hear a strange sound, apparently they are haunted by a corrupt stump, Ziggy jumps from his horse and attack the stump, Selena freaks out, she never a saw a creature like that, either did Pablo, they can't believe their eyes, Ziggy killed this monster, Pablo asked “What was that creature? And how did you killed it?” on which Ziggy answers “It was a Corrupt Stump, I fight a lot against these creatures in the Caribbean.” On which Pablo laugh and says “man, what kind of place do you live man” Selena asks concerned “are you ok Ziggy?” on which Ziggy says “yeah I’m good, weird I didn’t know these creatures lived here, I thought we only had those in the Caribbean under the serve of Jolly Roger, maybe it has to do so

The Lost Sword Of El Patron, maybe it has something to do with the Golden City?

mething with the Golden City?” on which Pablo asks “Who’s Jolly Roger?” and Selena asks “yeah maybe it had to do something, cause I live here my whole live and never saw one of those things.” On which Ziggy say to them; “Jolly Roger is an evil and cursed man who terrorizes the Caribbean, he has an army of undead pirates and conquistadores. He is after the Lost weapons of El Patron, you might know him as Humberto Diaz, so he can rule the Caribbean and defeat Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl. He’s now planning invasi

on on the 3 main islands in the Caribbean, and his army is growing stronger. And Selena it could be that it has something to do with the city.” On which Pablo says “Montalvo’s City, Humberto Diaz, Lost weapons, Jolly Roger, that stump? Maybe they have something to do with it all? Maybe this is much bigger that we realize.” Ziggy thinks with what Pablo says and he says “yeah maybe you’re right, maybe they all have to do something with it, cause the legend says that the city is guarded by undead Indians, and Jolly Roger’s army are undead, and the legend also says that there are Legendary weapons which went lost together with the city and El patron’s weapons are Lost and Legendary too. Maybe this is far beyond our imagination.” On which Pablo says “yeah who know?” and Selena “So this means we’re also in much more danger then we imagined?” on which Ziggy says “I don’t know, but you have me to protect you, I’ve survived the invasions of Jolly Roger, I’ve survived Raven’s Cove many times, and I just defeated a living tree. So maybe isn’t the golden city such a big deal.” So they jump back on their horses and drive further trough the forest. After a while hill’s are forming, and the forest starts to become desert again, they are now in the mountains. The mountains are very steep, but Selena knows a path through the mountains to a river. So they take the path, on their way to the river, Selena notice something and she stop the horses and says to the guys “you see that over there? That is a mountain lion over there, magnificent animals, one of my favorite animals” on which Ziggy says “yeah indeed, I love cats too, they have something that speaks to me.” On which Selena replies “Then we have

The river and mountains they need to cross

more in common they I first tough” Selena smiles and drive further. Ziggy smiles but is confused. On that moment Pablo comes towards him and says “I think she has a crush on you, and you one on here, good luck Amigo” Pablo smiles to his amigo and they both drive further. After a while the finally reach the river, now they have to find a way to cross this 80 meters wide river. Ziggy says “Are you sure this is the way?” on which Selena answers “of course this is the way or we can go around to the South but then we lose a day and the travel is already long enough, don’t you think?” on which Ziggy replies “euh yes miss, if you says so” on which Selena says “good” Pablo whispers to Ziggy “don’t you love that
Spanish temperament eh, hahahaha” Ziggy smiles and they cross the river. But all of a sudden Selena’s horse frights from something and thrown Selena of its back into the river with a strong current. Ziggy jumps from his horse called Patsy and jumps into the water to save Selena. Ziggy reach Selena and he grab a rock and hold it tight so they won’t draw. Ziggy shouts to Pablo to throw a robe to them. Pablo throws the robe and Ziggy manage to catch it. Pablo fastens the robe to his horse Aruba and he lifts them out of the water. they lie both in the sand and Selena lies in Ziggy’s arms when they are lifted on the water, and Selena whispers to Ziggy “Thank you, you saved my live, that was very brave” she gives him a kiss on his cheek and hold him a bit tighter. Then Selena gets up smiling and says “we have to move on, come on Ziggy get up or are you going to lie there the whole day?” Ziggy jumps back on his horse and they move further in to the mountains.

an Pablo, and Ziggy lies on the ground looking to the stars. And he’s thinking, since he saw Selena he’s very confused. She makes his head spinning. Is he in love or not? He’s not sure, she gives him a special feeling. A feeling a once known with a girl. A girl he still loves too, but he haven’t seen in a while. A girl that broke his hart and used him. Ziggy’s story is similar to the story of Davy Jones. Davy Jones fell in love with Calypso and Calypso pretended to love him, but she used him and afterwards she broke his hart. That’s what happened to Ziggy too. He hates the girl but deep in his hart

Ziggy's previous love story looks a lot like that from Davy Jones

he still loves her. But now there’s Selena too, and Ziggy is very attracted to her, she gives him the same feeling as the other girl, only this time the feeling in much stronger. And he keeps thinking on the moment she kissed his cheek when he rescued her from the water. Is she the one? Ziggy don’t know yet and he fells a sleep. But Selena didn’t sleep either, she was also thinking. Thinking about Ziggy and what she feels for him, he make her laughs and he give her a save and good feeling, she feels some sort of connection, she feels comforted and good around him. He makes her feel special. She keeps thinking on the moment he saved her out of the water and she was lying in his arms, that moment was magical to her. Or the moment they found the map in the canyon and they looked each other in the eyes, Selena saw something in his eyes that made her feel special. Selena fell in love that moment. When Pablo arrives back to camp without armadillo are Selena and Ziggy already asleep. Next morning Selena is early awake. Ziggy wakes up from the noise she makes with making the horses ready. Ziggy goes to her and says “Already awake” Selena frights because she didn’t know he was awake and says “ow God, you scared me. Didn’t hear you coming, and yes I’m making the horses ready so we can continue our journey early.” On which Ziggy replies “That’s very smart” on which Selena replies “thank you, now wake up our great armadillo fighter.” She laughs and continuous with preparing the horses for departure. Ziggy goes to Pablo and kicks him so he wakes up. Pablo who was still dreaming wakes up scared and scream “No armadillo, don’t eat me, no!” on which Ziggy says with a laugh “slept well?” on which Pablo answers relieved “ow, Ziggy. It is you.” on which Ziggy replies “Yeah who else, a giant flesh eating armadillo.” Pablo gets up and says to Ziggy “you are definitely the funniest one at home, aren’t you?” and which Ziggy scornful says “finally, some acknowledgement.” Selena scouts to the guys and says “Hey, are we going to ride or are you guys going to chat there all day? Come on it’s still a long journey.” They jump on their horses and continuous their journey to Nova Albion.

Chapter Seven: A Pirate Story Under The Moonlight

Its evening and they’ve travelled whole day, and are arrived at a lake now. They are tired but also very happy to see

The lake with moon view they have.

water. Pablo decides to catch some fish for dinner, he might have more luck with fish then he had with the armadillo. Selena and Ziggy decides to take a bath in the water. It was beautiful that night, the stars very bright and the moon very big. Now Pablo is fishing they have some time alone for themselves. They go closer to each other in the water. And Selena says to Ziggy “don’t you love water, it has something magical and it’s so beautiful, so refreshing. And especially romantic under the stars and moon don’t you think?” On which Ziggy replies “Ow yes, I love the sea, that’s why I became a sailor. And yes it’s very romantic here, with you, in this lake, under the stars.” On which Selena says “Well, I’ve been thinking lately, about this adventure, about us…” On which Ziggy says “Me too.” And he goes a little closer to her. Selena goes also a bit closer to him and says “I like you a lot, we have a lot in common. And you make me feel comforted around you. You just make me feel special.” On which Ziggy says “Really? That’s very sweet. I’ve been thinking also a lot about you, about us…” Selena hugs him and says “I think I love you, do you love me?” Ziggy holds her a bit tighter and says “I love you too, from the moment we first met, you had something that enchanted me.” Selena hug him again and lie her head on his shoulder, but when she open her eyes she noticed something and she pops her head ba

ck up and says “Ziggy is that a scar?” Ziggy push her away a bit and says “where?” Selena says “Their on your arm, that thing there, wait it’s a P, it’s not a scar, it’s a mark? You are a Pirate!” Selena goes back and says “why didn’t you tell me?” Ziggy answers her “Yes I’m a pirate and I didn’t tell you because I didn’t want to scare you.” On which Selena replies “I can’t believe you lied to me” Ziggy grab her arm and says “I didn’t lie to you, because I didn’t told you anything about me. And why I didn’t tell you earlier was because I did not wanted to scare you because I love you.” Selena comes back and says “Do you really love me?” on which Ziggy says “of course I do.” On which Selena says “ow ok, but be hon

est to me then and tell me how you got that scar.” Ziggy starts to tell “Well I worked for the VOC first, a Dutch Trading Company. But there is a war between Holland and Spain. So when we were in the Caribbean of coast of Jamaica. A Spanish fleet attacked our ship. I can still remember. It was already dark and it was quiet foggy on the sea that night. But then appeared 12 Spanish ships out of the fog, and they opened fire at us. Wood, cannons flew everywhere, the noise of the cannons and scream of the crewmembers was one of the worst sounds I’d ever heard in my live. The ship exploded and sunk to the bottom of the sea. I and only 3 other crew

mate survived. The Spanish pulled us out of the water. They gave us a chance and asked me if I wanted to join the Spanish or I would become pirate. I chose for pirate, and because the Spanish saw me as the leader of the survivals they only marked me. Later they put us in jail on a small island called Rambleshack. And to be honest, I don’t regret my choice. Pirate is not only plundering and killing, Pirates are not all bad. It’s about freedom and the adventure. Besides there is a pirate code, we pirates help each other and we only fight against enemies, in my case the British Royal Navy, the EITC, The Spanish and Jolly Roger and his undead army. Ow yeah, I’m not only Pirate. I’m a privateer for the French. And I’m a bartender too.” On which Selena says “So you’re a good guy actually?” She laughs and hugs him again. Ziggy says “yeah actually” Selena says to him “You’re now my Jolly Sailor Bold.” She gives him a short kiss on his mouth. Then they start to kiss and make love. Next morning Pablo wakes them up, they’re both together, Selena in Ziggy’s arms. And Pablo says “Had a good night lovebirds? Seems you did, and Ziggy enjoyed that Spanish Temperament?” on which Ziggy laughs and says “you bet I did.” They both get up and prepare the horses. They jump on the horses and Ziggy says to Pablo “I’ve to tell you something from my past during the journey…”

Chapter Eight: Enemy Territory

So Ziggy tells his story to Pablo, about how he became pirate. After th

e story Pablo reacts "you've been to all that trouble, thanks to Spain actually?" On which Ziggy answers "Yes, but don't worry i like you, you're not like those aboard that fleet." and Pablo asks "So you're a good pirate right?" On which Ziggy answers and laughs "Yed i am, and the most pirates are, we have a code, we help each other, and i only fight against the Royal Navy, Spain, The EITC, Jolly Roger and his undead army and Blackbeard..."on which Pablo says "So you are also a privateer for the French, and you sink Spanish for them?" on which Ziggy says "Yep." and Pablo says "ow ok." and they move on to their next destination. It's almost evening and Ziggy, Pablo and Selena are abou to arrive on

Noba Albion

Nova Albion. They are very tired from their 3 day trip. And they are riding their horses through a forest with lots of fog. They're all cautious, there British in this area and a tribe. The 3 are actually a little scared, until they hear a noise. The horses go in gallop. Then they notice they are followed by 4 Navy Soldiers on horses. But Ziggy had a plan and says "Pablo! I get rid of them, you go that way. I see you soon." and Ziggy goes to the left and one of the soldiers follows him, then Ziggy jump off Patsy into a tree, then when the soldier comes by, he drops himself on the soldier and smash him with the back of his sword on the head so he falls of the horse. With the horse of the soldier he catches up Patsy again and and jumps back on her. Pablo and Selena are still running from the 3 who are closing in. Selena says to Pablo "We're at a disadventage.", they're closing in!"' then Ziggy sh

ows up again and he shouts to Pablo "Oi, do you still have that robe?" on which Pablo answers "Yes, why?" on which Ziggy replies with a smile "I've a plan." Ziggy grabs one side of the robe while Pablo has the other side. Pablo goes to the right and Ziggy to the left and they slow down in speed. British are closing in and when they almost have the 2 friends. Pablo and Ziggy stops and pull the robe high so the 2 soldiers fall of their horses. Selena who's ahead followed by the last soldier think "I can do that too." She slows down so the soldier rides next to her, when the soldier tries to get his pistol, Selena says "ow no no no." she stands up on her horse, and does a move with which she puts her hands on her sadle and kicks the soldier of his horse with her boots. Pablo and Ziggy are impressed. But then all of a sudden they're surrounded by Navy Soldiers with bayonets. The 3 are full of perplexity and are pulled of their horses and arrested.

Chapter Nine: British Camp

Ziggy, Pablo and Selena where put in a small jail. Pablo says “Great there goes our golden city, we’re captured by British” on which Selena says “Now I can never clear the name of my father, and they are going to keep us in jail for the rest of our lives because we are Spanish and you Ziggy they are probably going to hang you.” Ziggy replies on that “ha-ha, don’t worries mate, I’ve been in jail a lot and I’ve always escaped. Besides this jail is easy it are halfpin hinges, with some strength and a proper leverage we are out of this easily.” Selena gets up and says “Are you kidding? You can get us out of here?” on which Ziggy says “of course I can, I’m a pirate, remember?” Ziggy kicks the door 5 times ti

Ziggy attacking the guards

ll the door fell out, they are free. Now they only have to escape the British Camp and find Ohlone Tribe. Pablo says “do you have a plan of escaping route?” on which Ziggy says “Not yet, maybe soon, but mostly I just improvise. Or wait, you see that way to the horse shelter, it’s guarded but not that hard, we can go through there and steel our horses back and steel theirs too.” On which Pablo says “hmmm good plan.” They go quiet to a sequoia tree and hide after it, then Ziggy takes his sword and wait till the first guard comes by, then he jumps from behind the tree and knocks out the guard. Then 5 guards comes to them, Ziggy attacks them too and says to Pablo “grab the sword of that guard that I knocked out” Pablo takes the sword and helps Ziggy with fighting the guards. They defeat them all, then they go to the horses and take their 3 horses and let the other horses escape. The guards find out but they don’t have any horses so they take their bayonets and shoot on the 3. But they and the horses are faster so they escape. They drive further into the foggy forest surrounded by Giant Sequoia. After riding for 40 minutes they hear some branches crack. Then all of a sudden they and their horses are surrounded by Ohlone warriors. Then Ziggy says to the tribe “Hello, I am captain Ziggy Cardon, I come in peace.” Then the chief comes and says “What are you doing here, we do not want people like you here, you only bring bad.” On which Ziggy says “We come in peace and we brought these horses as present, so you would help us. On which the chief says “Ok come to my camp and we will have a talk, warriors take the horses.”

NOTE!

The next chapters, so the entire story will be placed on the page "American Adventures - Ziggy Cardon And The Golden City".

Fleeing the Caribbean

After his unfortunate drunk wedding to Samantha Wavesilves which was planned by Captain Ezekiel Rott to weaken Jack Sparrow crew in the Caribbean Ziggy fled the Caribbean to escape his demanding bride in order to regain his freedom. With the help of his first mate Jonas he was able to get stowed away to the city of Antwerp. Ziggy was considered dead or missing in the Caribbean for over 10 years, but in reality he returned to his former life in the Netherlands. By leaving the Caribbean Ziggy had to leave behind his weapons, clothing and ships which eventually all got destroyed are looted by the EITC forces during the great Caribbean purge. Ziggy lived a good life in Europe with admittedly some up and downs. He didn't return to VOC or to his fishing life but he did start a small forge in the dutch city of Maastricht. Some years later he met Elizabeth Whalewaters which who he started a romantic relationship that lasts to this day. Though eventually Ziggy had to flee his life due to the War of the Austrian Succession when French armies threatened to occupy the city of Maastricht.

Return to the Caribbean

While being settled down in Maastricht Ziggy had heard rumors that a couple of years after the great Caribbean purge by the EITC, pirates begane settling down in the Caribbean again. And at the start of a new war Ziggy decided to leave and he boarded a ship in Antwerp sailing for the Caribbean. Unfortunatly for Ziggy the ship he boarded was a smuggling vessle that got caught by a French frigate. Unfortunatly for Ziggy this ship was captained by Pierre le Porc who recognised Ziggy from when the time when he was a French privateer. Because the British empire is siding with the Netherlands in the war my privateering past for the french didn't matter much and I was considered a known pirate and an accomplice of the smugglers. So I found myself in the same prison on Rambleshack island once again where my journey started almost 10 year ago. Jack Sparrow found himself in that prison as well and helped Ziggy escape once more. It's there where Ziggy met Captain Bo Beck, his ticket off the island until Jolly Roger returned and boarded the ship. Jolly killed Bo Beck but let Ziggy live to tell the tale of his return.

After setting foot on Tortugan soil again he allied himself once more with Jack Sparrow and was tasked to retake the Black Pearl once again after Jack Sparrow lost his ship again...

Ziggy is still the same pirate he was 10 years ago

But Ziggy was broke, having nothing but the clothes he was wearing, without his ships or crew. Ziggy knew the key to succes in the Caribbean was being part of a strong crew so he soon joined the guild Origins of Osiris, one of of the guilds with the largest presence in the region. Ziggy went on to retrain her skills, cannoneered on ships to earn quick coin and reputation until he could buy a new ship.

While Ziggy couldn't get his old ships back because the EITC torched them during the purge he bought a brand new War-brig and named her after his former flag ship "The Black Cobra", his former War Frigate.

Ziggy's new flag ship, a war brig with the name the Black Cobra.

Ziggy didn't change that much in appearance from the last time he was in the Caribbean, he is 10 years older and now sports a beard. But he still wears his same Captains coat and tricorn, as well as the same sash and boots. Ziggy is pretty much the same still, eager to help other pirates out and to rid the Caribbean of the navy, EITC and Jolly Roger's skeleton army. 3 weeks after Ziggy's arrival in the Caribbean he was joined by his girlfriend Elizabeth Whalewaters who traded her life for the pirates life as she became Ziggy's new first mate. Ziggy gained fame, reputation and riches at fast rate and soon managed to climb the ladder of his guild to become a veteran.

East India Trading Company Offer

When Ziggy was doing a tour to his beloved but cursed Black Cobra 3 EITC men showed up. they where called Johnny Coaleaston and Dustin Smith. they where impressed by the adventures and stories that where now from Ziggy and decided to look hem up. In Port Royal they saw a folder of a tour to the Cursed Black Cobra lead by Ziggy. So they decided to look him up. They found him on Isla Tormenta and joined the trip to the Cobra and they where impressed. Then they asked Ziggy to join them to help them do thing. ZIggy joined. he was the only pirate between 5 or 6 EITC men. But they where nice to him, then Freebooter joined Ziggy, a regular member of Ziggy's guild. Then when they all where in Kingshead attacking a EITC betrayer called Remington The Vicious. After they defeated him they went to Will's quarters, also an EITC member. There they told a lot of things to Ziggy and Freebooter what pirates are not suppose to know. Then Dustin did Ziggy an offer, they wanted Ziggy to join the EITC. They said they where looking for people who where wise and had enough skill. Ziggy liked these guys a lot but the pirate life means a lot to Ziggy and he's very loyal to Captain Jack Sparrow and his dad is still a pirate who's good friends with captain Teague. but Ziggy could maybe arrange something so he's something between parties. Cause Ziggy might not give up piracy because it's became a big part of his live that he really loves. So it's not sure if Ziggy going to chose for the EITC and give up his Pirates life or refusing the request to join the EITC or maybe he can arrange something so he still remains pirate but he will help the EITC with wars that also may be bad for pirates and ofcourse agains Jolly Roger. Ziggy one said "In Times Like These. Enemies Have To Stand Together To Defeat Even Bigger And Far More Dangerous Enemies."

Capt'n Jimmy Cardon

He's Ziggy's dad and a retired pirate captain who could be found in Tortuga, his hobby's are playing poker and fishing. He used to be an Officer in Ziggy's guild and he was good friends with Captain Teague Sparrow.

Elizabeth "Elise" Walewaters

Elizabeth is Ziggy's current girlfriend who he met during the time he returned to the Netherlands. After french troop treathened to invade the city of Maastricht during the Austrian wars of succesion the two fled to the Caribbean to become a pirate duo.

Captain Jack Sparrow

Jack Sparrow is an infamous pirate captain and the Pirate Lord of the Caribbean sea. Ziggy is a known crewmember and allie of Captain Jack Sparrow. Captain Jack saved Ziggy from Jail twice and Ziggy helped recover the Black Pearl for Jack Sparrow.

Jane-Sparrow

Jane-Sparrow was a former female Dutch pirate captain and close friend of Ziggy during his time in the Caribbean. the two went on many pirate adventures together and often got each other out of trouble. Jane's fate after the Caribbean purge is unknown, it's presumed she fled the Caribbean and retired from the pirate life.

Samantha Wavesilver

She is Ziggy's ex-wife which he got married to after a drunken night, they Married in December on the beach of Driftwood Island. While Samatha described the wedding as a magical fairy tale, the truth is quite different. You see, while Ziggy was probably one of the few pirates in the Caribbean that didn't drink alcohol he was tricked this one time by doing so during a bet. Ziggy didn't know that this was a plan of the cunning Captain Ezekiel Rott to seperate Ziggy's ties with Jack Sparrow's crew by getting him married to Samantha. The skeleton rum that was given to Ziggy was so strong it took almost a week for him to sober up, it was only after that week that Ziggy realised what happened. While Samantha was a good person, she was also very klingy and demanding and Captain Ezikiel's plan worked. By getting married Ziggy's freedom was robbed and the only way to get is back was by escaping his demanding bride. With the help of his first mate Jonas he was able to get stowed away on a ship sailing to Antwerp. Ziggy wasn't seen in the Caribbean for almost 10 years. Samantha did search for her lost husband for a long time and presumed Ziggy death, her faith is unknown. She is believed to have fled or perished during the EITC purge of the Caribbean.

Well if you're walking through the streets of Port Royal, getting wasted in Tortuga, slaying soldiers on Kingshead, or fighting for you're life undead on Cutthrout, and you see Ziggy, just whisper to him of ask it out loud to join his guild, he would like to add you to the guild, or if you see a member, just ask if they can add you, if not, ask them if they wanna ask on the guildchat if Ziigy, officers or veterans are on, so they can come and add you to the guild.

Hire

Sometimes, on a few occasions, Ziggy is hireing people to his guild, then he goes to a certain spot together with his high officers to hire people, mostly on Docks or taverns.

Asking

Didn't have any luck with one of the previous ones? Well, just ask then in a comment on this page, we'll make an arrangement, and meet at a certain place an a certain time. and then you can join the guild.

Company

On 5 November Ziggy started his own Rum Company, Specialised in Rare & Exotic Rum. The Company got the name"Ziggy's Caribbean Rum Company".

House

The Cardon's Cottage from the inside

Ziggy has a house in Tortuga called

Ziggy in front of his house.

"The Cardon's Cottage. he, his dad and Ziggy's best friends can be found there often. Tough it's his house he mostly spent his life on one of his ships or during his adventures. Ziggy's guild might give meetings and party's in his house when the guild is bigger. His house is located on the small beach of Tortuga next to "Bonita's Tattoo Parlor" ONLY in Antik, Battama, Exuma, Fragilles, Guines and Hassigos.

Ships

Before Ziggy fled the Caribbean he owned 3 ships in his fleet, after his return he purchased a new war brig "The Black Cobra".

The Black Cobra (War Brig)

The new Black Cobra

The Black Cobra is Ziggy's current ship in TLOPO, she is a War Brig that Ziggy managed to purchase with some saved-up money from being a cannoneer on the ships of other pirates.

The ship was named after his famed former War Frigate that he used as a Flagship of his fleet to honor her legacy after she was sunk by the EITC. The ship is mainly build for plundering with an agile speed, dark black sails, heavily armed and lots of cargo space. While she doesn't have as much history as the former cursed Black Cobra or as the Wicket Mermaid, she is fully Ziggy's ship and there is no doubt that this ship is on it's way to become infamous in the Caribbean waters along with her Captain.

The Blue Phoenix

Ziggy Cardon's Blue Phoenix

This was Ziggy's very first ship that he still owns, it's a small sloop that he mostly uses to sail to small wild islands very fast. Ziggy has now sold this ship

The Storm Banshee

Ziggy's ship, The Black Banshee during invasion sky

This was Ziggy's former War Galleon, he upgraded it 2 times, first it was a Light Galleon, then a Galleon and now a War Galleon. He often used this ship often for his Rum operations and and before he had his flagship this was his main ship.

The Storm Banshee was torched and sunk by the EITC during the great Caribbean purge

The Black Cobra (War Frigate)

This was Ziggy's favorite ship

The Black Cobra sailing under night sky

Frigate that he use the most, he bought it as a frigate but eventually upgraded it to a War Frigate. It was Ziggy's strongest ship.

The Cobra has been on a lot of adventures together with it's captain. But after it attacked the Queen Anne's Revenge, it was cursed by Blackbeard himself. Now the ship is doomed to burn on the spot where she was cursed forever. No one can board the ship not even Ziggy, it can't be repaired, it can't be sold, it can't be moved, it can't even be sunk anymore. She just lies there maybe forever. you can visit this ship in Hassigos North-West just off coast of Isla Tormenta. After 3 weeks of being cursed she was free, the cursed was lifted. But eventually the ship was destroyed by the EITC during the great Caribbean Purge

The Wicked Mermaid

Rumors says that Ziggy made a deal with Captain Jack Sparrow. Ziggy had to pay Jack Sparrow 80000 dubloons in exchange for something Ziggy lost long time ago.

The Wicked Mermaid sets sail

The true story is: Jack Sparrow had "The Batavia", the VOC ship that sunk before Ziggy became pirate, Shrunken in bottle. It was among the ships mr. Gibbs stole from Blackbeards ship closet. On December 16 Ziggy finally bought his ship back from Jack Sparrow for 80 000 coins, unfortunatly for him he wasn't able to sail it for long cause soon after Ziggy had to flee the Caribbean. The Wicked Mermaid was sunk a year after by the EITC during the great Caribbean purge.

Ship rules

Ziggy has a few rules for the sailors who are aboard his ship.

Rule 1

No one can steer the ship without the premission of Captain Ziggy Cardon himself accept his guild officers .

Rule 2

Only Repairing when Capt

Code according to Jack Sparrow.jpg

ain Ziggy Cardon says so, or when the ship's hull is burning and it's heavily damaged. If not, then you bring Ziggy in a disadventage. cause he alweys repairs his ships at a shipwright, and when the damage is repaired but the hull is still broken, he can't repair his ship. (Does not count during privateering)

Rule 3

Don't shoot with your cannons like a fool at randon ships. only on ship that we're attacking, heading to, or in the adventage to attack us. Cause if we're headin' to a ship and you shoot like a fool on randon ships, they will all attack us with as result sink to Davy Jones Locker. (does not count during privateering)

Rule 4

No fool language on my ships, we don't fight with each other or insult other pirates on the ship. That's against the Pirate Code and the ship rules. If you do, you'll have to walk the plank and leave the ship, if you're in the could, then we ban you immediately. Every one aboard my ship is equal.

Rule 5

Don't play boss aboard my ship

The Storm Banshee

s. Only Captain Ziggy Cardon or his officers can play boss. veterans, crew/guildmembers or sailors aboard his ship don't have the right to play boss. If you do this will be seen as mutiny or being rude agains your captain. No matter which level you are.

Rule 6

If the Captain gives an order, TAKE THE ORDER!
