"Da latazo! Da litozo! Hay la paka say-say."
―Bridge native to Pelegostos tibes people[src]

This boy was a member of the Pelegostos tribe during the time of Lord Cutler Beckett's occupation of Port Royal.

BiographyEdit

Not much is known of this boy's early life. At some point, he became a member of the Pelegostos Tribe and like his fellows started to search and capture people to devour them either by cutting them into pieces or roasting them alive and then leaving their bones lying around of Isla de Pelegostos.[1]

Around 1729, the Pelegostos imprisoned the crew of the Black Pearl in large, circular cages suspended over a steep canyon made by the bones of another crewmembers while planning to devour Captain Jack Sparrow, the crew's and the Pearl's captain, named Chief by the Pelegostos. Captive Will Turner, once there, pitched the idea to climb the cliff with the help of the crew members of his cage, while it became a race when the pirate Leech and his comrades of the other cage started to climb in order to mutiny and acquire the Black PEarl for themselves. This boy was crossing the chasm's bridge when he observed the cage containing Leech and other crew members fall into the canyon to their deaths when the cable keeping the cage aloft snapped. He also noticed that Will Turner and Joshamee Gibbs were dragging their cage up the cliff face in an attempt to escape, so he decided to alert his fellows and rushed to the Pelegostos village.[1]

Following the Black Pearl's crew escape from the tribe, he presumably went after Jack Sparrow, who managed to escape the island by running to the Pearl, leaving the Prison Dog as the new Chief of the Pelegostos,[1] although the dog eventually escaped from the island.[2] His further fate is unknown.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Bridge native was played by Alex Cong in Dead Man's Chest. The character was named "Cannibal Bridge Guard" in the film's credits.
  • In the revision screenplay draft of Dead Man's Chest, the Bridge native was named as "Cannibal Sentry", but he was to give the alarm about the escape of the Black Pearl's crew just by seeing them, not because Leech and his fellows fell to their deaths and screamed all the way like in the finished version of the film.
