Mr Ames is a navigator for Tunbridge Wheels, he was the Tunbridge Wheels school teacher before Chrysler Peavy took it over. It is said that Mr Ames enjoys his role as a navigator, and that "Peaveys pirates are better behaved than most of his old school pupils". Mr Ames doesn't personally kill Peavey, who is killed by Mungo and Janny Mags, but when Mungo and Jenny Maggs are about to kill Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw, Mr Ames follows suit and produces a small pistol to help, but before he can shoot Tom or Hester, Shrike appears and puts his glaives through Mr Ames chest when Mr Ames tries to run.
