Early days

The Killer Whale was in its heyday when the galleon was captained by Merrick and his crew, but after accidentally summoning the Hungering One, the crew was devoured and the galleon badly damaged. It was eventually shipwrecked in a group of then uncharted islands now known as The Reaper's Hideout, leaving the remains abandoned to its fate. Over time, some parts of the wreck of The Killer Whale would be used by The Reaper's Bones to build their base of operations on the same island where it was located, which they named The Reaper's Hideout.

The Shrouded Deep

Intent on finding The Shrouded Ghost, Belle turned to Merrick for his help while providing him with a near-identical reproduction of The Killer Whale for the task.

Belle and Merrick soon wrecked his ship on a cluster of rocks at M-12. Pirates found them aboard during The Shrouded Deep and used Belle's Ritual Table to summon the Shrouded Ghost.
