Slater was the First Mate aboard the slave ship

Lord Ligonier.


Slater had a very obnoxious attitude toward slaves and no qualms about harming them. Slater was very ignorant, religious-wise, and very likely raped female slaves aboard the ship. This is brought to light in a scene where he offers Davies a "belly-warmer" slave for the night. He is an asshole


Slater was killed when the slaves uprised. The uprising killed many of the crew, Slater being one of the last to die. When Slater saw the Mandinka wrestler approach him, he pulled out a pistol, aiming it at the slave's head. Just before he could pull the trigger, Kunta threw a dagger into Slater's lower torso, killing him. Hi Flo
