|Behind the scenes|
- "Fifteen for the fla...Uh, for the not-redheaded."
"I have been egregiously underbid upon!"
- ―Atencio and Giselle
Not much is known of Atencio's life, but it is known that he would still live in Shipwreck Cove by the mid-1740s. One night, he would join a group of pirates as the Auctioneer led an auction on two wenches, Scarlett and Giselle. Throughout the bidding, the pirates would bid for Scarlett, who he would refer to as the "redhead". Atencio would be one of the few pirates who would bid for Giselle, known as the "one with the flaxen hair" or the "non-redheaded". Though Atencio formed a corporation with a group of pirates, he lost the bid to the Marquis D'avis.
There was soon an argument on whether the wenches were for sale or not, in which the Auctioneer quoted what was in the Pirate Code. It was then that Mungard would interfere and, after Giselle slapped him, caused another stir. The madness would end with Mungard firing his pistol, causing the bullet to hit the Code. The Auctioneer, still holding the Code, fell backwards to the ground. Everyone, including Atencio, stared in shock of what just happened.
Atencio and the other pirates whisper among themselves about Mungard shooting the Code. It was then that Mungard ordered the Code to be locked up and warned the crowd of pirates that if any of them spoke a word of what occurred, that he would have their tongues.
Atencio's further fate is unknown.
Behind the scenes

- The name "Atencio" is likely a tribute to Xavier Atencio, a Disney Imagineer who worked on the original POTC ride.
