HistoryEditAt some unknown point in his life, Crash became a member of the Crew of the Flying Dutchman under Captain Davy Jones. Crash was identified by several unique distinguishing features that were the result of serving onboard the Dutchman. He had tendrils sprouting from one eye socket, and mandibles in place of a mouth. His right leg had been fused with a tentacle. He wielded the snout of a sawfish as a sword and was known to wield a pulley in combat. Crash also had tube worms hanging like a Rastafarian hairdo. When William Turner Jr. appeared aboard the Scuttled ship, the crew fought the young man, and was punched in the face. Crash was the one who knocked him out. Davy Jones boarded the ship, and Turner revealed that Jack Sparrow was nearby aboard the Black Pearl. Crash and the other crewmen boarded the Pearl, and held back the Motley crew as Jones and Sparrow negotiated.
Later, Crash and the other crewmen were working around the ship, and watched as Davy Jones had William "Bootstrap Bill" Turner Sr punish his son, and was one of the crewmen who threw William Turner Jr below deck. He watched as Maccus, Koleniko, and Clanker played Liar's Dice, and then looked on as William Turner challenged and played against Davy Jones. Crash was, later, one of the crewmen who turned the Kraken Hammer, and was whipped by Jimmy Legs. He executed a crewman of the Edinburgh Trader after the ship was ripped apart by the Kraken.Under Maccus, Crash and the other crewmen traveled to Isla Cruces in Jones' stead as the captain could not step on dry land. The crew discovered the Dead Man's Chest empty, and, hearing the bell tower, put two and two together and headed to the tower. On the way, they found and ambushed Pintel, Ragetti and Elizabeth Swann, dueling them in sword combat. Crash was cut down on numerous occasions by the trio. The Motley crew escaped with their lives, much to the dismay of Davy Jones. Later when the Dutchman ambushed the Pearl off Isla Cruces, Crash manned the cannons and fired on Jack Sparrow's ship. The ship got away, but was soon tracked down and teared apart by the Kraken. Crash witnessed Jones' rage when he opened the chest and discovered his heart was not there. He was present as the East India Trading Company crew of the HMS Endeavour under Lord Cutler Beckett boarded the Flying Dutchman. Jones pushed past him to talk to Beckett. The East India Company soon took over the ship. By order of Beckett and Jones, he and the crew attacked Sao Feng's flagship, the Empress, and executed most of the crew. Crash was shocked to later find Admiral James Norrington dead at the hands of Bootstrap Bill Turner and Davy Jones. He fled to the captain's cabin at Maccus' command.
Crash fought in the battle of Calypso's maelstrom, and remained aboard the Dutchman fighting a Chinese pirate. Crash managed to kill the pirate, and was later reverted back to his human form when Will Turner was inaugurated as captain of the Dutchman.
