The west Union Trading Company is a company started by Archibald Bane, distant cousin of Lord Caddius Bane. It was originally based out of the Rosignol tavern, where meetings and dealings would often take place. Shortly after it's creation, John Breasly joined the WUTC as the Sea Lord. Breasly then hired a man named Valkith Bane (no relation to the Bane family), who had good ties to several freetraders and shipwrights. He was appointed head shipwright, and production slowly began.
While Breasly left the Caribbean for a while to travel back to Europe and meet some distant family, Bane moved the company to Turtling Bay, a small island off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula. There, they made bonds with another company, who was sponsored greatly by Britain: the Official British Trading Company. While the OBTC was focused primarily on trade, the WUTC had taken a liking to warfare, and were often being payed to complete caravan jobs, mercenary jobs, or otherwise destroying Spanish fleets. Any trade from the WUTC was between them and the OBTC.
When Breasly returned, he found himself overwhelmed by the enormous operation they had going on.
