It is not known who or where the pirate known as Gold Sword came from. What is known is that in TK 1041, he began preying on ships from all the Realms of Alquennas. His flag ship, the Sable Hind, is a modified Elven Fast Sloop. The seven other ships in his squadron are also Elven Fast Sloops. His hit and run tactics are legendary against both smaller and larger fleets.
