“Can you feel it? The ill wind, blowin’ from beyond the horizon... These wild waters, them call to me. They’ve seen much to chill the blood... A deep hunger, a heart of fire... But them always promise the freedom of the sea.”
— The Castaway, A Pirate's Life

The Castaway is an NPC found stationed outside the Castaway's Camp at every Outpost, offering Tall Tales from A Pirate's Life.

She is later revealed to be Calypso from Pirates of the Caribbean, during the prologue of Dark Brethren.

When spoken to[]

Dialogue icon.png

So many ships, so many lives. I watch them come and go, and they pay me no mind. No one notices a Castaway.

 

You... are different. You see the camp, you see the pretty flames... Soon you will see much more.
I seek only them who want to know the truth. Them brave enough to stand against the storm when it come and defend the Pirate Life.
My books shine light upon that truth. When you are ready, gather your crew and return to them...

A Pirates Life Prologue[]

The Castaway

Can you feel it? The ill wind, blowin' from beyond the horizon…
These wild waters, them call to me.
They've seen much to chill the blood… A deep hunger, a heart of fire…
But them always promise the freedom of the sea.
Now though, a new danger is comin' on the tides.
An' if what it wants can't be found, it will take… everythin'…
Want to know its name…?
Mmm… The one who brought this ruin lie in iron below the feet of the Ferryman, trapped for all forever in the Sea of the Damned.
Nobody but its captain may tread below the dek of that ship.
That means to learn the truth with your own eyes, you'll have to stow away.
But if the Ferryman, him catch you, your destiny might end there…
Still listenin', hmm? Then listen close!
All you think you know about your life and death is only the beginning.
With your heart still beatin', you will see those cursed chores with new eyes… when you raise up the Flame of the Souls!
All I can do is show you the way…

(The Castaway casts a spell, opening a Tunnel of the Damned)

I travelled to another world, an' now you will do the same…
Take these words for the journey.
If you read them right, them whisper what has been – and what is yet to be.
Whispers to help you save a pirate's life…
Now make sail!
The door is open. The prisoner is waiting. And our time is tricklin' away…

The Sunken Pearl Prologue[]

The Castaway

Again we meet – and now you understand the truth better, yes?
Because of the Treasure he stole, Jack Sparrow lost him freedom, and now that same fate come for us all.
The Ferryman, him knew all about the threat we face – not from his prisoner, no
but from the darkness that followed that prisoner from beyond the horizon
The Flying Dutchman and its forsaken captain – Davy Jones.
Ah… You've heard him name before, I think. Maybe in a bedtime story…
But the danger him bring to the Sea of Thieves is more than just a tale, now that Jack's Treasure is in Jones' possession.
If Davy Jones is not stopped, this world will sink into shadow.
Jack is the only one who held the key to reach Davy Jones and take back that Treasure –
but now poor Jack is beyond our sight, set adrift in the Sea of the Damned.
Still, we may not be so lost as that.
For Jack's destiny is a tangled web, tied with the fate of him one true love…
…The Black Pearl.
In her, there's hope. Maybe even a way to reach those who are lost.
This journey is a treacherous one. The seas have many secrets, long since forgotten.
What you think you know of its past is only a glimpse through the door that Davy Jones opened.
But now I fear we have no choice.
Take these papers and study them.
Then dive into the deep and find the heart of the sunken Pearl before the dark water swallows her… forever!

Captains of the Damned Prologue[]

The Castaway

To do what you do...
To plunge into the icy depths and face the hatred that dwells below the waves...
That is not easy.
But in the dark, you found the heart of the Black Pearl...
...her loyal crew.
Mister Gibbs, you are no longer my only guest.

Gibbs

Ah, we meet again!
This fine woman's been tellin' me about this Sea of Thieves we've found ourselves upon.
Seems we won't be wantin' for adventures here.
Unless of course the goings on in the Sea of the Damned...

The Castaway

Aye, I have been telling Mister Gibbs that the Sea of the Damned is a place shaped by the lives of those who live there.
The Cursed Captain, him not know it...
...but the town where him spent eternity is drawn from his own lost past...

Gibbs

And that's what's got us thinking...
If we can follow the footprints to find the boots that made em...
...we can use a man's life to find the man.
Now I've sailed with Jack Sparrow more longer'n most!
So I've more than a few tales of his past misdeeds tucked away in the old mazard.

The Castaway

Our lives are like threads in a tapestry, they loop and they tangle.
The stories Mister Gibbs tell helped me tease out the golden thread of Jack's path...
...as it wind through the Sea of the Damned.
Now it fall to you to follow it.

Gibbs

But, er, as to Jack's precise location...
...we're still at a bit of a loss.
You'll need this back for the best chance of findin' him.

(After taking Jack's Compass from Gibbs)

The Castaway

If what you want most truly be to save the Sea of Thieves from Davy Jones, then the compass will point the way.
All I can do is drawn back the veil...

(The Castaway casts a spell, opening a Tunnel of the Damned)

Gibbs

Uh, before you go...
There's plenty about Jack's life that's strange, or peculiar, or downright inconceivable!
So I've scrawled down all that I can in these here notes.
You'd best take them for the journey.
I'd tag along but if I tried to leave without making reparations to the lass, Larinna, who gave us food and lodging...
...not even the Sea of thie Damned will hide me.
Best of luck to ye... we're all counting on you to bring Jack home.

Dark Brethren Prologue[]

The Castaway

So, you travelled to the Sea of the Damned, walked its shores and found one who was lost in him own past…
Not many can walk beyond the veil that way.
The things they see steal away their minds forever…
'Til they even forget that them dead…
But Davy Jones will not forget how you stood in him way.
Nor will him forgive the Siren Queen for failing him. He—
Wait-- we are not alone…
You know you cannot hide from me, Jack Sparrow!

Jack Sparrow

Uh, I wasn't hiding! I was… eavesdropping. Vastly difference pastimes.

The Castaway

There him stand… Another pirate who's twice come back from the land of the dead.
Who escaped the raid on Isla Tesoro and even found the Fountain of Youth…

Jack Sparrow

Oi! Have you been gossiping about me with this… this strange, book-obsessed individual?
Whatever they've told you, it's not true.
Unless it's flattering, in which case it's all true but they left out the best bits.

The Castaway

The man who stole the only trinket that can reach Davy Jones… A pendant, twin to the one Jones himself possesses.

Jack Sparrow

How can you know all this? That pendant—

The Castaway

Belongs to me.

Jack Sparrow

You can't be…

Calypso

Aye, this time it was the sea what brought you back to me, Jack.

(Calypso magically removes her "Castaway" disguise)

Jack Sparrow

Tia Dalma! Uh, Calypso! Shouldn't you… be floating on a cloud, or bubbles, or whatever it is sea goddesses do?
And while I'm asking the questions, am I alive or am I not?

Calypso

The Sea of Thieves is haunting place. It bestows many gifts, even upon the dead.
That is why I followed the Black Pearl here. To protect these sacred waters from Davy Jones and that which follow him.
That is all the answers I have. Now you must listen…
Davy Jones know that the pirates of this world threaten him plans.
So, him summonin' his own dark version of a Brethren Court, made of those cruel and corrupted souls who long to rule the Sea of Thieves.
If him succeed, him power will be greater than ever before.

Jack Sparrow

This is why I love running into old friends. They always have such cheery news.
But if Jones is inviting his friends for tea, that means we know where to find him, and, by the by, my Treasure.

Calypso

You speak the truth. And since you still hold the key to his fortress, with my sketches you can find your way inside.
Think of what you want most, Jack Sparrow. It will show you the way.

Jack Sparrow

Right. Well, given that these are unfamiliar waters, and I lack a ship with which to sail upon them, critical decision must be made.
You will always remember this as the day your crew was joined… by Captain Jack Sparrow!
Now I know that's a great honour to bestow upon a humble vessel such as yours, but don't you worry – I promise you won't be an imposition.
Tia Dalma, about that Treasure. If it was entrusted to Davy Jones, that can only mean--

Calypso

Hush! There are some truths not ready to be told.
Their time will come when the deed is done. Now make sail, witty Jack, and be swift!

Jack Sparrow

Oh. Well then… See you aboard!

Lords of the Sea Prologue[]

Gibbs

Jack! You're a slightly ethereal sight for sore eyes.
Still, I can't help noticin' a particular trinket is somewhat conspicuous by its absence…

Jack Sparrow

Aye, that's because Jones and his new "friends" still have it.
Seems he used it in some sort of ritual before escaping back to the Dutchman.
Extremely ungentlemanly behaviour of which I heartily disapprove.

Calypso

With the Treasure's power in him clutches, Davy Jones and his Dark Brethren can move freely between worlds.
They plan to sail to the Sea of the Damned just as you did. To take it over and destroy the Ferryman.

Jack Sparrow

And if that happens, only pirates who swear an oath to Jones will be allowed back from the land of the dead.

Scrum

But… That means he'd control everythin'.
It'd be the end of this place, for sure.

Anamaria

And what are we supposed to do about all this?
Jones has a whole fleet now, and we don't even have a ship!

Jack Sparrow

Well, I for one intend to get my Treasure back.
Even if I have to swim for it. Fortuitously, there's a speedier alternative available.
You! I'm commandeering your vessel and all who sail aboard her for Essential Pirate Business.
Besides, you've got as much of a score to settle with Jones as I.

Gibbs

Aye, it may be a lost cause, but if anyone can win a fight for pirates, it'll be Sea of Thieves pirates!
Ah, still… there's a mite bit of ocean to cover and we've only one ship. Where would we start?

Calypso

The doorway to the Sea of the Damned was opened from this world, an' now it must be closed the same way.
But to find it, we need somethin' special… Somethin' touched by the hand of Davy Jones.

Scrum

But we ain't got nothin' what belongs to Jones! Save for the holes in our pockets, that is.

Jack Sparrow

Wrong! I have something! Thought I might use it to open a coconut.

(Jack hands Calypso a dagger, and Calypso performs a magic spell with it)

Calypso

I will always find you, Davy Jones!

Jack Sparrow

Well, now that we have our heading, it's time we set sail.
Meet me in your ship's cabin, wherein I shall be hard at work strategising a… strategy.
And then forth we shall sally. Savvy?

Gibbs

Aye, and we'll see if we can't muster up some help at the Outpost. Good fortune, and fair wind to us all!

Calypso

Go… This is the last chance to stop Davy Jones.
If we do not put an end to the Dark Brethren, the light of freedom will vanish from this world… forever!
