Biography Edit

The Hunt for the Ruddy Rose Edit

In 1751, the Monarch, captained by Toms, hunted down the Ruddy Rose, a pirate barque stolen from the Dutch by the fearsome Captain Bonnet, in the Atlantic Ocean. Cole remained below deck and commanded a group of sailors who were pumping the water out of the bilge. However, the young Henry Turner, upon realizing that they were heading to the Devil's Triangle, ran to warn Captain Toms, ignoring Cole yelling at him to stop. Henry threw Cole aside and ran on the main deck. Cole eventually caught up with Turner, finding him telling the captain that they should avoid entering the Triangle since several ships that entered there would not come out. Toms dismissed Turner's warnings as mere superstition and Cole said to the captain that the sailor was clearly disturbed. When Turner tried to change the direction by force, he was caught dragged by Cole and two Royal Marines into the brig. Before he left, Cole said to Turner that if it were up to him he would hang from the yardarm. The ship then started sailing into the Triangle.[2]

However, once the Monarch entered the Devil's Triangle, Toms' crew discovered the remains of Bonnet's Dutch barque, concluding that Turner was right. But it was too late, because the terrible and ghostly Capitán Armando Salazar and his crew appeared on the scene, annihilating the crew of the Monarch and setting fire to the ship. Cole was killed by Salazar's crew.[2]

 Behind the scenes Edit

  • Cole was played by Rohan Nichol in Dead Men Tell No Tales. The character was credited as Officer Cole.
  • In the first teaser for Dead Men Tell No Tales showing a shortened version of the scene in which the Monarch's crew are killed, Cole is the first to die as he is grabbed by a crewmember of the Silent Mary. In the final version of the film, however, he is not seen during the fight and is presumably killed amongst the rest of the crew.
