El Bogavante (Spanish for "The Lobster") was a 18th century privateer named Cayetano de Povedilla Otero Antormarchi.


Antormarchi was the commander of the Black-Fish and was renown for his pronounced brutality. This was especially true in instances where his victims offered no resistance. The reason for his nickname "El Bogavante" is not well documented though many believed it is due to a claw-shaped birthmark or tattoo on the back of his right hand that gave him his nickname.

In 1810, Antormarchi's pirating days ended when his ship was overtaken off the coast of Monterrey by the U.S.S. Narwhal. By all accounts, Antormarchi fought ferociously and deftly for hours. He was not captured, and his death was never confirmed. Allegedly on the same night of the battle, Antormarchi was seen in St. Croix where he spent the night at the brothel of one of his many paramours, Olivia Dascher, until the next morning his body was beheaded. Whatever occurred on that night, Dascher gave birth to twin boys, one of them was named Obahdas.
