Rodrigo de Montoya is living in the time period of 1595 (explicitly at a time when the codpiece was out of style). He is the second son of the Spanish Noble family, de Montoya, from the mountainous area of Navarre. The families estates are northwest of the city of Pampeluna. Being a second son of Spanish nobility, he was given the commission of lieutenant commander and held the position of navigator on the Spanish Galleon , the Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion. The Concepcion was attacked and sunk by the English Privateer ship, the Star Dogg'd Moon. In the fierce battle, the English navigator was killed and Rodrigo was offered the choice of a walk on the plank or to sign on with the Star Dogg'd Moon. Despite the shame of joining the English crew, Rodrigo chose life over being a shark's dinner, but is dead in name and title to his family in Spain and would be executed immediately for treason if he were ever to put foot on his homeland again.
