Commodore Wallace Boltscrew is a high-ranking member of Duke Falrevere’s personal staff back in Kul Tiras, Wallace and his collection of fellow tinkers — whom he calls Wallace’s Warriors — are valuable additions to Falrevere’s crew. Wallace and the other tinkers improve the Bloodsail Buccaneers by adding technology to their equipment. Armored plating and more powerful cannons were only the first step; Wallace has tried numerous other experiments as well, and has slain only a dozen or so sailors testing them. A couple years ago, Wallace ran into another human engineer, Annetta Crank, in Bilgewater Port, and the two are now inseparable lovers and inventors. The two of them have crafted several submarines that could prove extremely dangerous; Duke Falrevere is holding these vessels secretly beneath Bloodsail Hold for now, for fear of tipping his hand to the Blackwater Raiders before he is ready.
Wallace was a valuable member of Falrevere’s household before the Third War; he created devices to assist in all manner of situations and was the head of the other servants. He was head butler (he still wears his butler suit), head chef and stablemaster. Once he started constructing devices of war, though, he found his calling. Some surmise that Wallace isn’t really an evil individual; he’d just found his passion, and unfortunately he happened to be a Bloodsail Buccaneer at the time. One could conceivably convince him to work for someone else, where his genius could be better used against those who really deserve a torpedo up the kilt.
