Ben Gunn is a sailor who was captured by the ex-slave community on the Maroon Island shortly before they captured Flint’s crew.

Biography Edit

Ben was one of fourteen crewmen on a slave trading ship. The crew had careened the ship on the windward side of the Maroon Island for cleaning and maintenance, when the marooners captured them. A few were killed in the first purge by the Maroon Queen, and the rest through forced hard labour. Ben is now the only survivor.

Season Three Edit

When James Flint and his crew are captured by the community on the Maroon Island, they are put into the same cell as Ben Gunn. He is eventually released with all the pirates, and joins Flint’s crew.

Trivia Edit

  • Ben Gunn is a fictional creation of Robert Louis Stevenson. He was a former pirate on Flint’s crew who was marooned on Treasure Island for three years, because he could not find the treasure buried by Flint. He would eventually turn against Long John Silver.
