* CompleteMonster: In this classic pirate novel, [[FatBastard Leo Friend]] stands out as the most depraved pirate around, surpassing even UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}} in brutality and evil. [[EnfantTerrible As a child]], Friend poisoned a magic user to learn his secrets before killing himó[[ILied despite promising to provide the antidote]]--then used his new powers to [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals torture animals]] and poison candy that he left near school grounds. In the culmination of heinous childhood acts, Friend tried to [[OedipusComplex rape his own mother in a sick attempt to show his gratitude for her recognizing his greatness]], ending with said mother's death. Becoming a pirate later in life, Friend perpetrated numerous atrocities, from luring a crew of innocents into a raid where he personally killed many of their number, to [[BadBoss sending one of his own crews to die]] as a distraction before gunning down a man who tries to save them. Friend later betrays his partners, kidnaps one's daughter, Beth, then tries to rape her while casting an illusion to make her resemble his mother, and he fully plans on [[MindRape tormenting]] Beth into becoming his broken slave. Having garnered immense power by his final duel, Friend raises a crew of undead pirates to assist him in his planned conquest of all he sees after massacring an entire ship of pirates. Showing his truly despicable colors more and more as the story went on, what Friend lacked in manners, charm, and sympathy, he replaced with [[AGodAmI a sickening god complex]] with which he proclaimed all of his crimes to be simply his divine right to commit.

** Benjamin Hurwood's desire to [[spoiler:restore his dead wife through their daughter's body]] is rather revolting too. Heck, even ''Blackbeard'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards was disgusted by that revelation]].

* RomanticPlotTumor: It's not exactly extreme, but it's there. Every time the priest and the mermaid have their scenes alone, it just grinds the plot to a complete stop.
* TheScrappy: The clergyman. The most he does is prevent the mermaid from suffocating in her glass coffin and whine about salvation around Blackbeard. He may already have fallen into CreatorsPet territory.
