―Berringer to Rogers

Captain Berringer was an officer in the Royal Navy, and Governor Rogers second-in-command in Nassau. He believed that to fight the pirates, one must be willing to sink to their level to do it. While he was a bitter and vengeful man, he clearly cared for the family he had home in England.

Biography Edit

Season Four Edit

XXX-max-berringer

Captain Berringer cares greatly for each and every one of his men, and takes the slaughter and mutilation of his redcoats on Maroon Island very hard. He encourages Woodes Rogers to reacts to pirate savagery with savagery of his own. While the Governor is away in Port Royal, one of his men follows Max to her secret parley with John Silver. The next day, he has her arrested. Berringer threatens her with charges of treason if she doesn’t give up her informants, but Max refuses and meets his gaze with equal resolve.

XXXI-berringer

Berringer lays on the hangings of the captured pirates with full public spectacle to draw Silver into a trap, despite Eleanor’s warning that it will encourage defiance in Nassau. John Silver rides into town Nassau flanked by Flint and Israel Hands. However, Berringer stands ready with his men as the pirates enter the square. An intense and bloody skirmish ensues. Inspired by their Pirate King, the townspeople and slaves join the revolt. Nevertheless, it looks like the redcoats have Silver and the pirates down, when in the nick of time Billy Bones and his men show up. In the end, Israel Hands has Berringer under his knife. He looks to Silver for the go ahead, before slitting Berringer’s throat.

Trivia Edit
