[edit] Biography

Not much is known about Prakoso, but it can be assumed that as a member of Eddy Raja's pirates, he hailed from Indonesia, and Eddy regarded him highly enough to have invited him to join the team of pirates. He was recognisable from his yellow vest, the tattoo on his face and the white necklace he wore around his neck. Prakoso also had a scar over his right eye, a possible indication of his violent life before being hired by Eddy. Prakoso favoured a handgun as his weapon of choice, and had a gun holster on his right leg.[1]

[edit] Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

In July 2006,[2] Prakoso and the rest of Eddy's pirates are hired by Gabriel Roman and Atoq Navarro to help reinforce the island that the treasure of El Dorado is said to be hidden on. Prakoso repeatedly encounters Nathan "Nate" Drake during his time on the island, as Nate and his companions Elena Fisher and Victor "Sully" Sullivan also search for the treasure of El Dorado.[1]

As the majority of Eddy's pirates are killed by the Descendants, Prakoso and Eddy find themselves the last remaining members of the group, however, Prakoso soon meets his when, after he and Eddy meet up with Nate, he is attacked and killed by one of the Descendants, before being dragged down into the depths of the island. Minutes later, Prakoso's boss Eddy finds himself on the end of a similar fate.[1]
