Deadliest Fiction Wiki

He runs the largest slave, drug, and weapons trafficking rings in the South Pacific, and commands his own private army of bloodthirsty mercenaries.
— Willis Huntley on Hoyt Volker

The Privateers is a faction of mercenaries based on South Island of the Rook Islands, with the violent, sadistic Hoyt Volker acting as their leader. Compared to the pirates on the North Island they are much better equipped and organized, donning tactical gear and armed with state of the art weaponry. They were hired by Hoyt to protect him and his business but likely left Rook Islands after his death at the hands of Jason Brody.

Hoyt himself was the son of an abusive father, a South African mining boss. This violent upbringing resulted in Hoyt becoming even more violent, sadistic, and mentally unstable than his father. At an unknown point his life, Hoyt became involved involved in organized crime, and climbed his way to become the head of a gang of pirates and criminals in the Rook Islands, amassing large amounts of wealth from illegal trading in arms, drugs, and even slave labor. Hoyt is shown to torture and murder anyone who crosses him, often in horrific manners, for instance, burning them alive in a small metal cage.
