Cutpurse Charlie Condent was one of the pirates based out of Avalon, Atlantis in the 1660s. He joined Red Rodney Radcliffe's defense of Avalon against the Anglo-Dutch-Atlantean fleet.

After the Battle of the Hesperian Gulf, Condent joined the parley aboard the Aigle d'Argent. He angered Red Rodney Radcliffe by insisting that the pirates had definitively defeated the allied fleet, while at the same time questioning Radcliffe's decision to fight on the open sea.

When Avalon fell, Condent was killed.[1]

Condent was memorialized by a street in Avalon, Cutpurse Charlie Lane, well into the 19th century.[2]

Condent's Flag

Literary Comment[]

Cutpurse Condent shares the same last name and flag with the historical Christopher Condent, who used a variety of other aliases. However, the OTL pirate was born nearly 30 years after the death of the fictional character.
