"I destroyed dozens of ships. The last ones joined together to try defeat me but they soon realized it was hopeless. Nothing could stop the Silent Mary. The sea was finally... pure. Their wretched flags would no longer stain the sea."
Armando Salazar[src]

The Battle off the Devil's Triangle was the last battle in Capitán Armando Salazar's anti-piracy campaign before his first death in the Devil's Triangle.

PreludeEdit

"Pirates had infected the seas for generations, taking the life of my father and his father before him. So I vowed to end this plague once and for all. And that's what I did."
―Armando Salazar[src]

Some time after his teenage adventures, Jack Sparrow was a crew member aboard a mighty vessel, the Wicked Wench. More than a dozen ships were attacking the known Spaniard and pirate hunter, Capitán Armando Salazar. Lieutenant Lesaro manned the helm of the Silent Mary as Salazar shouted orders, sinking many ships in the process.

BattleEdit

"Lovely day for a sail, Captain! Wouldn't you agree? The way I see it, there's just the two of us left. Surrender to me now, Captain, and I will let you live."
Jack Sparrow to Armando Salazar[src]

After destroying dozens of ships, Lesaro noticed survivors in the water begging for mercy. Salazar smirked and stated "there is no mercy", while taking a bite of his apple. Lesaro then commanded the soldiers to take aim and fire at them, brutally killing any survivors.

Just as the Capitán thought he had won the battle, he noticed a young man's voice coming from the crow's nest of a ship on the opposite side of his. Salazar claimed that the boy looked like a "little bird" giving him the name Jack the Sparrow. Jack demanded that Salazar surrender and if he did, he would let him live. Of course, Salazar being overconfident in the Silent Mary and its crew, decided to pursue the pirate mocking his honor.

Sparrow manned the helm of the Wicked Wench and sailed straight toward the mouth of the Devil's Triangle, with the Silent Mary right on its tail. The crew of the Silent Mary seemed concerned on pursuing Sparrow, but Salazar was determined and commanded that they follow him into the Devil's Triangle. Just as the Wench was about to enter, Jack shouted "Throw it now!" and ropes came flying out of the port side of the ship and caught on the rocks beside them, turning the Wench in the opposite direction. Salazar noticed Jack had been making a bootleg turn and pushed Lesaro aside from the helm and tried to make the turn himself, but it was too late. The Silent Mary had already been swallowed whole by the Devil's Triangle. As they sailed through the dark caverns of the Triangle, the Silent Mary was being scraped by rocks below, causing it to slowly sink and crash on the cave's walls. The ship began to go up in flames, striking and burning dozens of crew members. Salazar tried to escape the flames, but was whacked in the back of the head by a mast flinging toward him, killing him and knocking him overboard. The Silent Mary had been sunk, taking her captain and crew along with her.

Jack and the Wench's crew watched at the pirate hunter met his demise. The crew then offered Jack tribute.

AftermathEdit

"He took everything from me. And filled me with rage... and pain."
Armando Salazar[src]

Salazar's body slowly began to sink to the depths of the Triangle, but his eyes then opened from an unrelenting power within the Devil's Triangle, causing him and his crew, as well as the Mary, to resurrect into something far more evil and fearsome than they ever were in life.

ReferencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 In an interview for Empire Magazine Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that Jack Sparrow was 18 when he trapped Salazar in the Devil's Triangle. That sets this battle after Jack's teenage adventures in Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow but before the flashbacks in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom where he's a 20-year-old pirate living in Shipwreck Cove.
  2. The timeline established in On Stranger Tides (which takes place in 1750) and Dead Men Tell No Tales (which takes place in 1751) sets this battle around 1708.
