Hey bilge rats! Shut up and listen up!

I'm Cap'n Solente. Mates I like get to call me Tess. But I don't like any of you grab-ass sons-a-bitches, so it's Cap'n to the likes of you.

Some of you might have sailed with me before. Some of you may have fought me before. A few of you I might have slept with. If I liked you, I'd remember, so don't ask.

Few years back, my crew took a big damn prize from Count Calliani. She's been sitting in my dock ever since. Yeah, I hear you crap-for-brains in the back there, snickering. It's true enough. Been trying to make her fly. Balloons. Wings. Fireworks. Catapults. Ducks on strings. Buttered toast and cats. Even tried to steal some of them old wings from the east. Only got a month in the clink for the trouble, ‘fore my mates busted me out.

Well I got something better now. So hear this, bitches.

The Osprey flies.

You think on that now. Think about going wherever the wind takes ya. Flying over the wall of some prince's manor, hauling up his treasure, and leaving him to shake his fist up at you.

Any of you scum want to get rich, sign articles with me. I'm gonna piss on them snooty queens and kick over the virtuosos' sand castles. I'll skin the tribal elders for a coat, and serve Shorewinds on the half-shell. And the merchant princes... you know, I'll just let you use your imagination there.

I'm gonna douse the world in oil and drop a torch on it. While it burns I'll be sitting overhead on a pile of gold, drunk off my ass and laughing.

And I will NOT have the decency to spit on you.
