Captain Quinilious Maximillian's background and information
Quinilious Maximillian was born in Rome on July 17, 1788. The Maximillian family was a very wealthy family in Rome having major influence in Political and Trade aspects of Rome. This was untill 1796 when the Napoleonic Wars started. Fearing death and prosecution, the Maximillian family fled Rome and headed to London. Having spent the remaining family fortune to secure safe travels to London, Quinilious's father had to work as a fishermen to support his family. Quinilious went down to the docks every day to wait for his father. This is where he fell in love with the sea. At the age of 14, Quinilious joined his father as a fishermen, but this was not at all how he expected the life as a fisherman to be. Instead, he now wanted to be a Captain of a ship. His father ridiculed Quinilious decision and told him that because he came from Rome, he would never be able to sail for the Royal Navy. But this did not stop Quinilious. He continued to work hard and eventually received a promotion. This then caught the eye of Captain J.W. Arrowsmith. Quinilious got an opportunity on May 16, 1808 working as a cannon loader on the H.M.S Bristol which was the flagship of Sir Peter Parker. Quinilious stayed on the H.M.S Bristol until 1810 when she was broken up. Quinilious then transfered to the H.M.S Caledonia under Admiral Edward Pellew. Admiral Pellew took a quick likening to Quinilious and trained him as an officer. On May 5th 1816, Quinilious went on to the St Georges Squadron and was given command of H.M.S Enterprise. Quinilious continues to sail for St Georges Squadron in the Caribbean fighting Pirates and any nation that thinks the game mess with the Royal Navy.
