“阿,我的头发都被强风吹乱了!海的感觉和味道让人心广神怡,即使是海上船来的恶臭都会让我感觉还活着,就有...就有未来!”
——施蒂德·邦尼特对爱德华·肯威,在他们航行到哈瓦那的旅途上,1715 年[来源]

施蒂德·邦尼特 (c. 1688 – 1718) 是一位18世纪初期的巴巴多斯英籍海盗,他与他的船员航行过东部沿海地区的十三个殖民地。尽管他声名狼籍,但经常被称为「绅士海盗」,其中部分原因是他的前身——他在巴巴多斯是一名拥有获利甘蔗种植园的中等富俗地主,后来转型成了海盗。

尽管与他的成长经历形成对比,施蒂德成为了加勒比海地区几位知名的可爱海盗同事,认识他的人包括爱德华·肯威爱德华·萨奇本杰明·霍尼戈尔德以及玛丽·里德

在哈瓦那这段时间编辑

“两年前西班牙跟英格兰还在打仗呢,真是不可思议!而我现在居然在这里跟西班牙人进行交易,就像他们真的是我的亲戚一样。”
——施蒂德抵达哈瓦那[来源]
1715年, Stede's schooner, the Revenge, was waylaid by a Royal Navy warship off the coast of Cape Bonavista, Cuba. The British suspected Stede of being involved in a nearby battle between a pirate warship and a passing vessel.

Despite denying this profusely, the British refused to accept his turn of events, intending to commandeer his vessel and marooning him. He was saved by the timely intervention of Edward Kenway, a pirate who had been involved in the engagement, and shortly beforehand assumed the identity of Duncan Walpole, an Assassin whom Edward had been forced to kill. Having saved Stede's life, the pirate offered to pilot Revenge to Havana, where both of them had business. On arriving in Havana, Stede and Edward headed into the city, eventually ending up in a tavern.

There, Edward was recognized by a privateer, who knew of Kenway being a pirate, and of his ties to those in Nassau. The two engaged in a fight after Edward's attempt to silence him, drawing the attention of some nearby Spanish guards. Stede was mistaken for Kenway's accomplice and severely beaten by the guards, having his sugar confiscated in the process.

Once Kenway had returned from avoiding the soldiers, he found a battered Bonnet by the docks, who told the former that the soldiers had confiscated Edward's possessions, as well as the sugar. Edward then agreed to retrieve Bonnet's cargo at the same time as his own effects, but could not fulfill on his promise. Fortunately however, Stede was still able to make a profit with his remaining inventory, and Kenway then confessed his real first name to Bonnet.

Later on, Bonnet spotted Kenway with the Templars and excitedly called him by his real name, nearly blowing his cover, to which Kenway was quickly able to talk his way out of trouble. Kenway later met with Bonnet and complained about the small pay he received from the governor Laureano de Torres y Ayala for the items he brought. Bonnet, on the other hand, was really trying to inform Kenway of his great sales from the day.

成为海盗编辑

Around his twenty-ninth birthday, Bonnet grew restless with "the tedium of domesticity", which may have been exacerbated by the death of his son. This prompted him to take up a life of piracy, hiring a crew of seventy men. To maintain a part of his life of comfort, he installed a full library in the captain's quarters of his ship, and dressed in fine pajamas, smoking jackets, and frocks. Near the end of 1717, Stede bid his wife and children farewell, sailing north from Barbados, never to see them again.

Sailing under the moniker "Captain Edwards", Stede was eager to take his first prize. His crew foolishly chose a Spanish Man O' War as their first target, and nearly half of his crew was killed or injured during the battle. Bonnet survived, and set sail for Nassau, meeting and befriending fellow pirate, Edward Thatch. Thatch convinced Bonnet to hand over the Revenge, leaving Bonnet happily confined to his cabin.

Two months later, Thatch captured a massive French slave ship called La Concorde, renaming it the Queen Anne's Revenge. Thatch continued to mentor Stede for a time on board the Queen Anne's Revenge, where Bonnet reunited with his old friend Edward Kenway, while searching for medicines for Nassau in the old ship wrecks. There, he became an unfortunate victim of Thatch's fear tactics, which frightened him speechless.

Later on, Thatch and his crew engaged a British Man O' War, and were eventually assisted by Kenway. After the battle, Thatch allowed Bonnet to leave his service, returning him the Revenge. Meeting Kenway for the final time, Bonnet joyfully bade his friend farewell, thanking him for their friendship, which he claimed was "more precious than any treasure".

Feeling that he had received adequate tutelage under Thatch, Bonnet had hoped to return to the Caribbean and receive a letter of marque from the Danish governor of St. Thomas to go privateering against Spanish ships. However, hurricane season left the Revenge trapped in the Northern Colonies, and as his crew grew restless, he was compelled to return to piracy despite decreased tolerance for pirates in the region.

During the Battle of Cape Fear River, Bonnet's crew engaged Royal Marines led by Colonel William Rhett, and was captured. Though he attempted escape, he was recaptured by Colonel Rhett and was hanged for piracy. Eyewitnesses reported being moved to tears by his remorse in the last moments before the execution. However, Bonnet left clues for Edward Kenway, who followed in Bonnet's footsteps on the island of Saint Lucia, and uncovered the secrets of the pirate's adventures.

Stede Bonnet was a jolly and gracious man, shown especially by his great respect for Edward Kenway, who saved his life, and his ability to see a silver lining to any situation. However, this came paired with naivety, as Bonnet clearly did not understand the potential dangers he could have faced while traveling with Edward, nor for the consequences of piracy, passing it off for grand adventure.

While sailing under Thatch, Bonnet showed more courage than earlier, being toughened up by living with the pirates. Of course, when Thatch was demonstrating to Edward what it meant to instill fear in men, Bonnet still cowered weakly when Thatch used him as an example. Despite this, Stede left Thatch's crew in good spirits, even commenting to Kenway the great impact that the man had on his self-esteem and confidence, as his last words to Kenway involved Bonnet thanking him for his help.
