Frederick De Witt was a member of Captain One Eye Jack's crew aboard the Flying Dutchman and the crew's official pharmacist and spy.
Frederick De Witt was born by a chambermaid and was the son of a baron. He received a strict education until the death of his father, from where he was free to study alchemy. Discovery his talent in gambling, he began a career as a Piquet player and even managed to bring Edmond Barry to the brink of bankruptcy.
In 1715, after spending a relationship with the countess of O, he was condemned to serve in the navy before he later managed to desert his ship and escape to Barbados. From here, he earned a reputation as an unbeatable gambler before he was approached by One Eyed Jack with a challenge. Their game soon resulted in an alliance as the pair would proceed to massacre the residence of Terra Nova.
As a crewmember of the Jolly Roger, he became the crew's official chemist and informant. During a time, he had a relationship with princess Isabella Negroni, who considers him to be "The brightest star of my nights".
Carnby encounters him in the Pool Room, playing a game of pool by himself. Upon seeing Carnby, he places a Derringer on the other side of the pool table as an invitation to a duel. Upon picking up the pistol, Carnby accepts this duel and De Witt walks around the table to start duelling. However, he will cheat by shooting first without saying draw. The Derringer only has a few rounds. Upon his death, he will drop his sword stick for Carnby to loot.
De Witt is reincarnated along with the rest of his crew, and Carnby fights him Powder Room of the Flying Dutchman. Unlike his previous battle, De Witt is now armed with a pirate sword.

On the Flying Dutchman, he wields a pirate sword and is one of the only enemies that are able to block some of Carnby's attacks. It is also important that Carnby must not fire any guns in the powder room, or else the ship will explode, killing Carnby instantly.
