The Captain was serious.

O.O Well then...

He means business.

To be fair to him, at least he's not one of those captains who punish people for doing things they weren't warned about...

Captain Colton: ...and therefore, I punish you by cutting your daily rum ration in half."
Pirate: "AAARRRGGHHH!!!"

Colton, you monster!

Jammy
Noooo not the rum! That'd be even worse!
14th March, 2019
Uhm... well... Colton sure is consequent. And probably sparks even more problems for Sebastian and, by extension, Nate (and potentially himself) in the process.
Love Sebastian's face in fourth panel though, he looks like "...meep?"

If someone got hurt for this reason, it's certainly not going to endear him to them, that's for sure...

Hehe, thank you!

Sounds like you stepped on their toes, captain. Is that the sort of punishment your men usually get?
15th March, 2019
Jammy
Yeah! He stepped on that guy's toes so hard, blood spurted out. The monster!

Do they have their own Pirate Creed? To quote from the one I am familiar with:

Rule 1: On his own ship, a captain's word is law.
And while:
Rule 3: Never shy away from a good fight.
This was not a friendly brawl and the crew made a deal with the captain and his laws:
Rule 5: A deal is a deal.
Therefore:
Rule 8: Whoever breaks the Creed must suffer death or dishonor.

While I do not find this unusual for pirates (whether he killed him or just chopped his leg off to be replaced with a peg) I suppose this made the point clear, Sebastian included. Fear.

They do, yep. I guess the only part that's really been revealed is 'If you're standing on the same deck as the crew, you're either a pirate, or dead.'

I'm enjoying your logic with those rules there!

Yes, the captain unfortunately prefers the Blackbeard method of captaining... Stay away a lot, but make sure everyone's flipping terrified of you.

Blackbeard, yup. That fits quite well on their ship.
Plus he is an ex-soldier. I do not know about the rest but at least the Captain burned down stuff and killed people so he can easily terrify without doing much.
