Quest for the Golden Bananas[edit | edit source]

Being a member of the Scribes, a band of cartographers that know all the hidden corners of the Sea of Thieves. It was because of this knowledge that she found herself a captive of Captain Bronzebeard who demanded that she decipher riddles, left by another prisoner, Blind Bob, that lead to a hidden stash of Golden Bananas. Rather than doing Bronzebeard's bidding, Umbra slipped from her chains, and made an escape on a skiff. She found herself caught in a great storm that battered and destroyed, leaving her marooned on an island. Though as luck would have it this was the very island Blind Bob hid the Golden Bananas.

Umbra would spend days racking her brain, remembering every riddle and symbol Blind Bob had shared with her during their time together in Captain Bronzebeard's brig. Several days passed until a crew of savvy pirates found her island and assisted her in uncovering the Golden Bananas. They then they struck a deal: her rescue in return for the Golden Bananas.

Mid-Season 2 (Patch 2.1.1):

Dialogue icon.png

Greetings. My name is Umbra, I'm new to these shores. I seek the greatest of legends... perhaps you could help me?

What do you mean about the 'greatest of legends'?

Of all the places I've seen, the Sea of Thieves holds the most magical and wonderful stories! A place where piracy can live forever...
I have devoted my life to recording tales of greatness... the most important being inked on my body. You see? Even my own tale is among my tattoos.
The adventures of the bold and unpredictable pirates who live here are perfect inspiration for more tattoos. Maybe I'll even ink your legend...
I have begun compiling a list of all the rumours and tales of pirates great and small. However, I cannot follow all these threads by myself.
I need you to track down and verify the rumours I hear. Even the list I have now is still growing. If you can find them, I shall reward you!

Have you tried searching for Duke?

Oh what would be the point? He clearly doesn't want to be found, least of all by me.
I spent so long alone as a prisoner, I suppose I was desperate to think I'd make a friend - any friend. Duke was just in the right place at the right time.
Now I realise I'd forgotten just how much it stings when a friendship gets ripped away from your heart...

I have something to show you!

I like your style… but I’m looking for something very specific.

(needs filling in)

Ugh... I don't want to talk about it. Honestly, for a pirate whose head is stuffed with ideas, he can be so thoughtless!
So no, since you ask, he hasn't sent me so much as a message in a bottle, even though I've heard he's alive and well.
I try to find the best in people, especially the ones I care about, but honestly? I'm a little irritated. Yes, let's say that.
At least I have a treasure trove of new journals to catalogue, left behind by the mysterious Glitterbeard...
He seemed determined to see everything the Sea of Thieves had to offer. You should keep an eye out for them as you travel!

Heard from Duke recently?

Oh, that big lummox has me worried sick! Upping and leaving in the dead of night without saying so much as a goodbye.
I care about Duke a great deal, but it's pig-headed decisions like these that make me want to wallop him sometimes.
I'm sure he'll be back sooner or later. For his sake, he'd better have a good excuse!

Do you get any visitors?

Oh, more than you'd think! It's been especially busy recently, with pirates stopping by to ask Duke questions and share his special grog.
I had hoped that it might cheer him up, and it seemed to work for a while... Then one morning I woke up to find him just... staring.
Since then, it's he's been in a trance! For the first time since he arrived he's been muttering about heading back to sea.
Honestly, I'm not sure if that means he's getting back to some of his old adventurous spirit, or if I should be worried. At least I'm here if he needs me...

What do you need me to do?

I have begun compiling a list of all the rumours and tales of pirates great and small. However, I cannot follow all these threads by myself.
As soon as I unravel the legend of a famous pirate, I hear whispers of a new one who’s performed some wonderful feat!
I need you to track down and verify the rumours I hear. Even the list I have now is still growing. Do you feel the lure of curiosity?

With special cosmetic items[edit | edit source]

Accessed by selecting the "I have something to show you!" dialogue option with particular cosmetic items (listed below).

Dialogue icon.png

Sure, what do you want to show me?

Show Legacy Beard

That beard reminds me of the legend of Beardageddon! It’s most certainly modelled after his mighty chin.
The stories say that he fought the Hungering One alone, in only his underwear! Sounds like madness.
Better yet, some accounts suggest that he had a chicken on board which survived to tell the tale…

Show Amethyst Angel Hair

That radiant purple! That’s the same colour used by Nerdy Netty, one of the loveliest pirates ever known.
It’s really quite something. No wonder she became famous - she’s very kind… and very hard to miss…

Show Stream Sailor Makeup

What a stunning, sea-inspired tone you wear. Just like Daggers McTimbers!
She’s quite the generous pirate. She once sailed for 24 hours straight, gaining gold donations from all she passed, to give to pirates in need!
You certainly can’t miss her colourful style when she comes ailing along…

Show Sea Dog Pegleg

That leg reminds me of the legendary Peg Leg Perez! Now that pirate gets into some scrapes.
His tale is well known - a pirate who came to these seas long ago, when the Outposts still had fresh paint!
He has a fantatical love for rare things - a collector and explorer with a heart for adventure. Watch out for that one...

Umbra, do you recognise me in this? (Wearing Golden Banana Set)

Wait... there's only two pirates who could be wearing that! You completed the quest for the golden bananas, didn't you?!
You succeeded where I could not, deciphering Blind Bob's riddles. A job well done!
If not for your efforts, I'd still be marooned on that isle... thank you!
So, to answer your question... of course I recognise you, banana-bearer!
