|“||Gah, Jimmi. Just pull harder yourself and do something worthwhile for once in your life.||”|
|“||We'll never survive.||”|
— Jake Able, The Wreck and Rise of Whitson Mariner
As Desolation sails into view, Jake and several others swim for the shore of an island, where survivors of Vanguard's wreck are standing. Before long, the crews of Steadfast and Desolation are locked in a furious battle. When Captain Grimble's sailors discovered a group of blastpowder barrels aboard the supposedly abandoned Steadfast, many of them abandoned ship and swam to shore.
The barrels, however, were revealed to be a hoax, and Commander Usher resolved to lead his crew back into the fight upon Steadfast. When Queen Lillie ordered them to surrender, Usher merely laughed. Luckily, more of Lillie's allies, including Jake Able, arrived, forcing Grimble's supporters to remain on shore.
