He laid a trap for the Predator, and nearly destroyed it after the Predator had attacked another Auroran airship. Captain Francis Grimm out maneuvered him and escaped. His ship was too heavy and the chase too undignified. He and his ship appear right after the Predator had captured the Mistshark—then gives chase. Predator is leading him toward the Albion Fleet, hopefully to take it down. It's important that Albion takes down such a "storied" ship as the Itasca in the opening of the war and after Albion took such a major hits and the loss of the Habble Landing Shipyards. AFS Glorious, led by Commodore Hamilton Rook, takes on Itasca, then abandons the fight and leaves Grimm to die. Then appear: AMS Valliant, AFS Victorious and AFS Thunderous—they engage the Itasca. Thunderous falls first. Then Victorous. Valiant, captained by Alexander Bayard, teams with Predator. While engaging Valiant, Predator managed a direct into a gaping hole into the ship sending explosions inside it. It ends in Castillo surrendering to Francis Grimm by holding up his sword.
Grimm pleads for him and his crew to the Spirearch to not be sent to the base of the Spire—it's a place of horror no slow death. Castillo surrendered to Grimm and he feels that he owes him that. They did help in the rescue of the crews of Victorious and Thunderous. Grimm recommended special commendation to Captain Castillo and his men for their effort.
- "Her captain was sent out to bring Predator down last month, to make a statement. He missed us. A captain put in command of a ship like Itasca will be professional, brilliant, ambitious, hungry, miss. He won't want to go home without feathering his cap with Predator's wreckage." — Grimm to Gwen"Professional, brilliant, ambitious, hungry"
