The Pirate is the naval form of the Dagger. It is created when a Dagger moves onto or is spawned on a Port, and it retains the stats and abilities of the Dagger and will be revert to a Dagger if it chooses to land. A Dagger will only spawn as a Pirate if there are no empty land tiles remaining within the borders of an infiltrated city.

Unlike a Raft, the Pirate cannot be upgraded into other naval units.

The pirate is better than daggers, as they can move 2 tiles instead of the usual 1.
