"Barbossa. My name is Barbossa."
―Carina Barbossa[src]

Carina Smyth, also known as Carina Barbossa, was an astronomer and horologist around the middle of the 18th century.

A briliant thinker, Carina was a woman ahead of her time. She was often accused of being a witch for her interests in astronomy, time, and mathematics. Though women had no right to study at university in her time, Carina Smyth fought against that rule. She eventually came in possession of a diary with clues that would lead to the mystical Trident of Poseidon. Along the way, she encountered Henry Turner and the infamous pirate Jack Sparrow.

Carina sought the Trident to not only prove herself as a scientist but to unravel the mystery of where she came from, discover who her unknown father is, and who she is truly meant to be.[1]

Carina Barbossa

After the discovery of the Trident of Poseidon, caused by the sea splitting in half, Carina was able to remind Henry on how to break all the curses at sea. After Henry was able to break the Trident, Salazar and his entire crew turned back into their human forms, but soon realized that the split sea was slowly coming to a close, and they were right in the middle. When all had seemed lost, Carina noticed Barbossa swinging in from the Pearl's anchor, urging them all to climb. After climbing aboard, she was able to slowly make her way up, but would soon loose her grasp of the anchor and began falling back down toward the sea. Fortunately Barbossa was able to catch her just before she fell any further. Looking into the eyes of her savior, she asked who she is to him. Barbossa replied that she was "Treasure". finally realizing who she was and who was holding her by her arm, she couldn't help but know that she had finally found what had been lost to her for so many years, her father. As Barbossa held on to her, he noticd that Salazar was making his way toward Carina with his sword drawn. After ordering his daughter to grab hold of the anchor, Jack tossed Hector a sword and he let go of the anchor, allowing himself to fall and pierce Salazar through the back with his blade, causing the Spaniard to fall down to the depths of the sea, but not before landing face first on the anchor and dragging his remaining crew down with him. As Carina store into the eyes of her father she watched helplessly as he fell toward the colliding waters below. After looking at each the one last time, Barbossa was consumed by the sea, out of Carina's sight. Still comprehending what was happening, she was given little time to think, for the sea then closed in on her, Henry and Jack. The crew of the Black Pearl raised the anchor and out came the three heroes from the water. As Carina made her way aboard the Pearl, all began to sink in. Her eyes filled with tears as she was finally able to piece everything together and comprehend what had just happened. As the entire crew mourned the sacrifice of Hector Barbossa, Carina knew that for a moment she had everything, only for it to be gone again. Henry then came in, holding the Diary given to her by Barbossa. As Henry called her "Miss Smyth" she corrected him, and told him that her name was "Barbossa". The sea had finally been tamed. All was calm as they sailed back to Henry's home, where he met his father after years of not seeing him. Carina stood beside Henry as they both grasped hands as Elizabeth Swann emerged from the hills and ran toward Will. Carina and Henry smiled at the two finally being able to reunite after so long.
