Early Life

Nate Crestbreaker was born in September of 1712 to his father, Jarod Pillagebane, and his mother, who died when he was born. He spent his first 16 years or so in England, sailing consistantly with his father's small fleet of ships. He spent a few summers away from school learning the arts of sailing, repairing, and running his very own crew. It was then he met his adopted brother, David Yellowfish, for the first time. He was abandoned as a young boy, so Jarod took him in. Nate showed him the ropes of sailing, and to this day, the two have been great friends.
