Killed by the Kraken
- "It's not like that, sir. This ship is haunted."
- ―Bursar to Captain Bellamy
This man was a sailor who served aboard the Edinburgh Trader as the ship's bursar during the time of the East India Trading Company's appearance in Port Royal. The bursar showed a superstitious nature, as noted by Captain Bellamy.
When the dress of the stow-away Elizabeth Swann was found aboard the ship the bursar assumed it to mean the ship was haunted by a female presence. The bursar's suggested solution to the perceived ghostly threat was to throw the dress overboard and hope that the spirit would follow it.
During the Kraken's attack on the Edinburgh Trader the bursar offered it the dress of Elizabeth Swann, believing the dress to be the cause of the Kraken's appearance. He was then, however, seized by a tentacle and dragged beneath the sea.
Behind the scenes Edit
- Bursar was played by Max Baker in Dead Man's Chest.
- In revision screenplay draft of Dead Man's Chest, during the Kraken's attack to the Edinburgh Trader, the Bursar (named "Burser" for some reason), while offering Elizabeth Swann's dress to the Kraken, was to slip and fall over the Edinburgh's rail to his death.
