Early life

As a boy in Boralus, young Flynn was taken advantage of by the local gangs, who had him picking pockets and distracting guards for them.[3]

Flynn eventually came to be the captain of his own pirate crew, with Harlan Sweete as his first mate. He witnessed Harlan commit acts that he didn't like, leading Flynn to consider him a maniac.[4] The apparent last straw was when the two had a falling out after a messy job and this, plus his disgust over Harlan's behavior, caused Flynn to lose all taste for freebooting, so he just disappeared from Freehold one day. Venrik even came to believe that he had died.[5] Meanwhile, Harlan took the nastiest of the crew and formed the Irontide Raiders.[6]

Battle for Azeroth

Flynn was encountered by an Alliance adventurer as a prisoner in Tol Dagor, the island prison owned by House Ashvane. He had intentionally gotten arrested because Cyrus Crestfall hired him to break the adventurer out of Tol Dagor.[7] Flynn staged a prison break and met with his companion Taelia who was waiting with an escape boat to take him back to Boralus.[8]

Flynn later worked with Mathias Shaw to retrieve the Abyssal Scepter, a stolen tidesage artifact, from the Zandalari treasury. The serious spymaster didn't get along with Flynn at first, not appreciating his quips, but seemed to warm up to him by the end of the scenario. Once the real scepter was taken and swapped out with a fake one, they made an escape from Opulence.[9]

He can also appear drunk in Boralus during the Faction Assaults.[10]

At Eastpoint Station
Cagney fished this girl out of the water with his ferry - said she was trying to escape the foundry.
Doesn't surprise me one bit that the Ashvane Company is putting kids to work. I was barely older than her when the gangs in Boralus had me picking pockets and distracting guards for them.
In this world, the weaker you are, the more people take advantage of you.
In Boralus
Yes? We've got our orders, the Azerite's waiting, just take a look at the table and you let me know when you're ready to ship out.
I'm know, I'm hard not to look at, I get that a lot, but we've got to focus here.
