―EITC Agent and Tia Dalma[src] (deleted scene)

This man was an agent in the army of the East India Trading Company during Cutler Beckett's War Against Piracy.


Not much is known about this man's early life. At some unspecified point of his life, this man decided to join the East India Trading Company. By the time of Lord Cutler Beckett's governorship, this man was an agent in the Company's private army.[1]

When Lord Beckett declared an open War Against Piracy, many EITC soldiers, including the agent, were sent to Singapore, to search for the hideout of Sao Feng, the infamous Pirate Lord of the South China Sea. One night, commanding a small squad of soldiers, the agent was patrolling the streets of Singapore when they intercepted a woman with a monkey pushing a cart loaded with birdcages full of canaries. When the agent told her that she's wasn't allowed to be there, the woman revealed to him that his mother always knew about the misdeed he did as a child but always forgave him for it. The agent asked her how she knew that and she simply replied "The canaries". The agent and his men then left her alone.[1][2] His further fate is unknown.
