At some point, aboard his ship Killmonger along with the Orca, he attacked the Sea King of the Blackwater Raiders who were enjoying their victory. Caught unaware and semi-drunk, the Sea King's crew was easily defeated and tied. The Orca left with its loot and Ironpatch came to deal with the crew. He immediately executed Adashe Flintwill, captain of the Sea King. Seeing this, his two tied brothers charged at the orc. Although they knocked him, the rest of the Killmonger's crew bested them. Ironpatch then killed them as well. As he observed the rest of the prisoners, he prepared to execute Makasa Flintwill, but was parried by Captain Greydon Thorne whose crew from the Wavestrider had silently approached the Killmonger and the Sea King. Battling against the Bloodsails and freeing the Blackwater Raiders, Makasa rushed to attack the orc captain, taking Adashe's harpoon and aiming it at Ironpatch's chest. His body fell over the rail into the sea, and it never resurfaced.[1]

According to Traveler, there was no possibility of "saving Makasa's brothers from the Horde."[2] It could be speculated that Makasa blames the Horde because Ironpatch was an orc. Alternatively, it could be an oversight and mistake.
