No written records from the Henry Charles Morgan remain to support either position. The length of this piece measures twenty inches, the entirety of it carved from base to tip. The scene is a rolling one, composed of several moments in time marked by the phases of the moon etched in miniature above each instance. The work is extremely delicate, yet rich in detail. In total, the events depicted cover a span of just over a month. The next scene shows the creature at full length, secured by a manacle about its ankle.
The pattern of scales is shaded more subtly, and the gills are less pronounced. The captain holds a lantern aloft to study the creature.

A faint pattern of crosshatching behind the captain, but separate from him, suggests a shadow watching from an unseen distance. The captain sits opposite the creature.

Thick chains bind the creature about the legs and waist, but its upper body and arms are left free. Next, three men—one bearing a bandage partially covering his face—study the creature from a safe distance. Shadows partially obscure the creature. Perhaps it is a trick of the lighting which eliminates the curve at hip and breast, returning the creature to a more neutral form?
Though the face itself is inhuman, the creature wears a very human expression—hatred as it glares from its chained position at the watchful crew. Following this, the same three men are shown wrestling with the creature, then restraining and leading it by a rope.

The creature is next seen secured to the deck, ropes binding each wrist and each ankle, holding it splayed. The wound upon its side is longer in evidence—either sealed of its own accord, or merely omitted by the artist. The three men stand with their heads bowed in conference. A fourth man joins the next scene. The bound figure of the creature appears smaller in this scene, more childlike in appearance, though the bonds remain tight. Even restrained against the deck, the creature is imbued with a sense of watchful waiting, hatred rolling from its being in a way that is nearly palpable.
Also palpable, even carved, is the fear-stench of sweat from the men. It is a remarkable achievement, and testament to the power of art that it can evoke these sensations for all that it is only lines etched upon dead matter, darkened by ink. The curve of what appears to be a rib bone lies bloody upon the deck. In the next scene, the men are surprised at their ghastly work by the captain. His face is livid, brimstone and fire.
Next, the four conspirators are clapped in chains. The final scene upon the tusk shows four men hanging from the main yard, bodies swollen with rot. Beneath this grisly frieze, the captain and the creature stand facing each other, their hands clasped. The creature is dressed, or clothing has been put upon it—a dress such as a modest woman might wear. The captain wears a look of rapture. On the part of the creature, no such expression is in evidence.

The final piece of scrimshaw resembles the curve of a rib bone. It was found, along with the other pieces, in a canvas sack likely made from sail cloth.

It is Charles who, in an unpublished memoir, gives us a glimpse of young Fletcher as he last saw him headed for the Pacific. Fletcher Christian—faced with a bankrupt family who could not shelter him, and personally in financial debt to Bligh—judged by the evidence of his time and the psychology of today, appeared to have suffered a mental breakdown. He had that day received a tongue-lashing from Bligh for failure to perform his duty.

For all these measures, it appears, he was heartily despised. He exerted his leadership by the unwavering authority of his impeccable professionalism. He knew his job. The water-stained log he diligently kept throughout the six-week ordeal—navigating, sailing and keeping discipline on starvation rations—is a testament to this professionalism. Through experiences scarcely to be believed, he does his duty. We are covered with Rain and Sea that we can scare see or make use of our Eyes….
T hose who remained on the Bounty, under command of Christian, sailed first to Tahiti, then to the island of Tubuai, where they came to blows with the islanders and with each other. They sailed back to Tahiti where the majority chose to remain, some with the hope of building new lives. Quaithe is present in Qarth after the arrival of Daenerys Targaryen and her khalasar.
After the young Khaleesi witnesses a feat of magic performed by the warlock Pyat Pree and is taken away by Xaro Xhoan Daxos , Quaithe approaches Ser Jorah Mormont and warns him of the men that might covet Daenerys's dragons.
Following the theft of the dragons Ser Jorah seeks out Quaithe. He finds her painting a sailor to protect him while passing across the shattered Valyrian Peninsula , where the Doom is said to still hold sway. She tells Jorah that Daenerys is with the person that stole her dragons while she is meeting with the Thirteen. During the meeting Pyat Pree reveals himself as the thief. He pronounces Xaro the King of Qarth and murders the other members of the council using his magic before repeating an invitation to visit the House of the Undying.
According to costume designer Michele Clapton , Quaithe's mask was designed to display a stylistic link to Melisandre , because both of them are from the region of Asshai. Melisandre wears an ornate neck piece featuring a repeated design motif of elongated hexagons.
Quaithe's mask was constructed using the same hexagonal shapes as links, though filled in with metal.

Further, the dresses of both Melisandre and Quaithe have the same hexagonal design motif elongated so they are taller than they are wide , though the pattern on Melisandre's dress is solid red on black and more difficult to see. In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Quaithe is an enigmatic shadowbinder , preferring to speak in riddles and prophecies. She hides her true features behind a dark red, lacquered mask of wood, as do many people from the Shadow Lands.
In the books, Quaithe first meets Daenerys in the Red Waste.
