All my life, I was told that to encounter Davy Jones was to be plunged into a nightmare. Today, his Dark Brethren has saved me from that same fate! Better yet, they have promised me passage out of the Sea of the Damned, where I have been unwittingly trapped for countless lifetimes. My old crew are at my side, looking just as I remember them. Perhaps they're nothing more than my own hazy memories, but they can fight well enough. Jones has promised us an end to our eternal imprisonment, no longer shall those of us who broke the Code be forced to suffer for our sins! I shall take up arms against the pirates who abandoned me. I shall fight for my freedom. And I shall serve the Dark Brethren – Lords of the Sea!
