All crewmen killed
The crew of the Silent Mary was a Spanish Royal Navy crew that served on the Silent Mary under the command of Capitán Armando Salazar and Lieutenant Lesaro. Fiercely loyal to their Capitán, they followed his orders by sailing after Sparrow into the mysterious waters of the Devil's Triangle, where their ship was mangled by rocks within the Devil's Triangle, causing the powder stored within the ship to ignite and consume the ship with an unrelenting fire. They all fell victims to supernatural forces. However, even death was not the end of the crew, as they all returned to the Seven Seas as ghosts, determined to exact revenge on the man they blamed for their fate - the infamous pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. Although they are able to pursue anyone at sea, they are unable to set foot on land, for if they do, they will die a quick death, proven when one of the crew members attempted to attack Sparrow, but was incinerated into black dust once his foot touched land.
The entire crew, including the notable Officers, Magda, Santos, Moss, and Lieutenant Lesaro, were devoured by the sea and drowned due to the powers of the trident of Poseidon. Many of the crew attempted to make their way toward an anchor which was meant to save Captain Jack, Carina, and Henry, but only two members of the crew along with Captain Salazar, were able to make it aboard. This was short lived, for when Barbossa sacrificed himself to save his daughter, Carina, He pierced Salazar through the back with his sword and the Spaniard fell downward and knocked the two other crew members off the anchor, sealing the fate of every Silent Mary crew member.
Behind the scenes Edit
- The idea of include a ghost crew in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie goes back to the mid-2000s, when screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio originally conceived Davy Jones and his crew as ghostlike creatures in Dead Man's Chest At World's End. However, determined to come up with never-before-seen fantastical characters, director Gore Verbinski wanted them to be more specifically of the sea, with gravity and weight, as if the souls of shipwrecked sailors had fused with the detritus of the ocean floor.
- During the early development of On Stranger Tides, a ghost crew was originally supposed to appear, but the idea was cut. However, it seems that the idea was recycled later for Dead Men Tell No Tales.
