What about Ramses?
Afterall the enemies you fight in arena and hunter are his pirates.
Other than him, it makes sense to play as anyone really.
@sand Eddy's also a pirate. It could be argued that Eddy pretty much killed his own pirates in Fort - Prelude, because Ramses doesn't even know the place.
Well it is pretty obvious that nothing in the Adventure mode is canon...for one Laz, Flynn and Eddy are alive.
We know how Eddy's pirates look from UC1 and we know how Ramses' pirates look as well, and these are obviously his pirates. Eddy even exclaims to them in the chapter "you are sh**y pirates" most likely because they are nothing like his own.
Well, because they are exactly the same as the enemies you fight in single player while in the ship sections. Who are all enemies under the command of Ramses.
