In my book the antagonist is a group of people against Hunter, the protagonist. These are Sanson and the new secretary to the governor at Port Royal, Hackett. Hackett is an arrogant guy that only isn't killed by now because of the position he holds in the government. Hackett is Hunter's antagonist because he thinks Hunter is a pirate. Hunter somewhat is but the Governor has always thought highly of Hunter. This brings special opportunities for Hunter to go on excursions that the government helps pay for. Sanson, the other antagonist of Hunter wants the treasure for himself. Because of this he does everything possible to either leave Hunter behind or get him arrested. He is a greedy liar that always tries to get his way even if he's wrong.
