Jean Thomas Dulaien was a cunning pirate, he would disguise his ship with tree branches and lay in wait for ships to pass by. When a good target was spotted branches would be removed and the anchor hauled in. In less than a year, Dulaien and his men had amassed a small fortune using this technique.
Moody (1694–1722) was once a crew member of Bartholomew Roberts until getting his own ship and holding a policy of giving no quarter (no sparing of lives). His distinctive red flag shows an hourglass with wings to signify to his victims that their time to live was flying away!
Quelch (1666-1704) was an English born pirate who had a lucrative but very brief career of about one year. He was the first mate of the "Charles", a fully armed, well-provisioned ship which was on licence to attack French and Spanish ships, but within minutes of leaving port, the crew mutinied. They elected Quelch as their new leader, threw the old captain overboard and set sail for South America.
