|Behind the scenes|
- "Ready the guns!"
"Aye! Ready the guns!"
- ―John Scarfield and an Officer to the crew
The crew of the Essex consisted of many Marines, sailors, and officers of the British Royal Navy. They were under the command of Lieutenant John Scarfield, a British naval officer driven mad by his lust for revenge on Carina Smyth and Jack Sparrow, and determination for the British Empire to hold the command of the sea. Despite their skillful officers and powerful ship, the entire crew died due to Armando Salazar using the Silent Mary to crush the Essex in two, igniting the powder magazine and sending the ship ablaze, killing everyone including Scarfield on board.
