Like the character he inspired, he is cocky, thinks he is the best on the sea, and is fierce rivals with Percival. Unlike his TV show counterpart, he is extremely loyal to his brother, The Skin-Taker.
He commands a fleet of three ships, despite his young age.
Unlike Milo in the TV show, in the book, he is killed in a duel with Percival after trying to capture him and his crew along with his brother.
