Not much is known about Hume's past, except that he joined the Royal Navy and rose to the rank of Captain. Eventually, he became the commanding officer of the Scarborough, the frigate that was primarily operating in the Caribbean.
After taking the merchant vessel holding the scheduled route for the Urca de Lima, the Walrus retreated at the sight of the Scarborough, who was away from her normal port of Boston. When the Walrus fled, she was followed back to Nassau by the Scarborough.
After discovering that the page containing the schedule was missing, and that he needed the page to keep the crew loyal, James Flint decided to go to Richard Guthrie for help. While the negotiations between Flint and Guthrie were falling through, Billy Bones looked out the window to see more guests arriving, including Captain Hume. When Hume interrupted the meeting between Flint and Guthrie, Guthrie told Hume to leave, and that he was interrupting an important meeting with sugar merchants, and that Hume could return in the morning. Hume instead stated that he believed a strong society is built on rumors, and that the current rumors in London were that Richard was smuggling goods stolen by pirates. On top of that, he suspected Flint and Bones were pirates, and that he was arresting all three of them. Before he or his men could do this, Flint and Bones overpowered him, with Guthrie getting shot in the process. They took the injured Guthrie to the Walrus, and left Hume unconscious on the ground with his men.
Hume and his ship had set up 40 miles from Nassau with an interesting prisoner that they retrieved from the water: Billy Bones. Hume offered Bones and nine other men pardons if they would apprehend and bring to him Captain Flint. However, instead of Flint, Hume is brought Eleanor Guthrie, whom he agrees to take prisoner in exchange for granting the ten pardons.
- It is possible that Hume is the historical Captain Francis Hume of the HMS Scarborough.
