Captain Tyger's father was a French nobleman and his mother was one of the Cat People. During the mid-17th century, Tyger rose to become the deadliest of the notorious French freebooters known as Frères de la côte (Brothers of the Coast) who preyed on Spanish galleons from their base on Tortuga Island. Captain Tyger hated slavery and freed his slaves, including the twin native brothers, Laurent and Alexandre. Perhaps because of this, and other unrevealed reasons, Tyger developed a fierce hatred for the freebooter Boute-Feu, who trafficked in slaves, raiding his ships and freeing his human cargo. To gain revenge Boute-Feu ambushed and killed Alexandre. He then dragged the body to the voodoo priest Schango who, with the help of the voodoo god Sagbata, turned Alexandre into the first of the zombies.
Boute-Feu used the zombies raised by Schango to attack Port-Margot, and fought against Tyger. Meanwhile, the voodoo gods, appalled by Sagbata's actions sent one of their own, Legba, to help mankind. Legba took Laurent and entrusted him with power over the Loa, the voodoo spirits. Laurent then confronted Schango and, using a spell given to him by Legba, summoned Alexandre's spirit to merge with him. He then killed Schango. In Port-Margot, Boute-Feu's zombies crumbled into dust and the evil freebooter was killed by Tyger.
