"Will, this is Charles Vane, Benjamin Hornigold, and Edward Thatch" Elizabeth said happily as she gestured to each of the pirates. "About a year after I went on the account, I met them all. This was about a year before I met you. Anyway, Rackham, and Kidd are like brothers to me. Vane is like an uncle. Hornigold, we're involved. And dear old Edward Thatch, Blackbeard, is like a father to me." Since Elizabeth never really had a family, the pirates had become her family.
