Robot pirates were robotic sea rovers, initially deployed by The Harrybo Company. In 1998, The Harrybo Company began planning the placement of a new outpost on Jamaica. In 2005, these plans unfolded, and along with the outpost, a robot factory was made. The robot pirates mainly settle there, or inside one of their ships (also supplied by The Harrybo Company), which have the ability of firing robotic plums.
There were several different titles within the robot pirate ranks, and each ship that was made by the Harrybo Company received its own crew, including a captain, the strongest of each group. Besides having been built for use on the Seven Seas, robot pirates were also deployed by the company to take down villages for new outposts or other settlements.
