“Nan Sop” translates roughly to “The Wisp” or “The Flame” in Scottish. Ailean “Nan Sop” Maclean lived up to those words.
A pirate, a rogue, and a canny statesman, Ailean “Nan Sop” MacLean went from a single stolen ship to becoming one of the greatest and most feared pirates in England, Scotland, and Ireland. Eventually commanding a fleet of thirty warships, he conquered vast tracts of land, castles, and terrorized merchant shipping and coastline towns.

His once quiet life is now filled with interviews, public appearances and questions whether the alien’s medical technology is actually the first step in a more subtle plan to conquer Earth.
