The Dread Captain HardCore sent his finest Hashashins to investigate the mysterious death of Dupre and the implications that the Mayor of Trinsic, Alastor Gordon was up to no good.
It was reported back that Alastor is actually the first mate to the murdered dreaded pirate Hawkins! Alastor, also going under the name Lord Whitsaber had done his best to keep this a secret and live an honest life as the mayor of Trinsic. Drunken ramblings at the Gritty Pitcher Tavern located in Red Skull Bay say that Dupre knew of Alastor's buccaneer past and was going to blackmail him to gain access to Hawkins' treasure map.
Captain HardCore gathered all info on Alastor and all known acquaintances.
The Ten Pirates of Hawkins were former members of the crew of Captain Hawkins.
The Pirates are:
Alastor Gordon (a.k.a. Lord Whitsaber)
These people were very important for the Avatar to locate the Treasure Map of Hawkins, which nine of these people each had a part of. The map was needed to find the Silver Tablet in order to translate the Book of Prophecies.
