"Your bravery is wasted. I shall pry the chest away from your cold...dead...hands."
―Hadras to James Norrington[src]

Hadras served as a crew member aboard the Flying Dutchman under the command of Davy Jones. As with other members of the crew, Hadras had, over time, taken on aspects of the sea flora and fauna the crew resided amongst. He spoke Cantonese, possibly indicating his place of birth.

Biography

"Aunido! Aunido! Follow my voice! Follow my voice! To the left—no, turn around! Go to the right, go to—no...that's a tree."

Hadras

Hadras's body was covered with coral and barnacles, though most notably was the fact that his head was ensconsed within a conch shell. More, his head had in fact transformed and merged into a hermit crab that could move independently of his body, propelled by a number of small, crab-like legs.
Hadras maquette

Concept maquette of Hadras.

During the fight for the Dead Man's Chest on Isla Cruces, Hadras's head became detached from its body thanks to a well-aimed coconut thrown by Jack Sparrow. The head was forced to shout directions as Hadras's body blundered about blindly trying to relocate it. He managed to pick up his head, and carried it under one arm.

Hadras later confronted James Norrington, in possession of the chest, who, in an act of apparent cowardice, threw the chest into Hadras's arms and fled. However, this meant the pirate was forced to drop his head to catch the chest, and his body forgot to retrieve it when the rest of the crew arrived. Hadras's body raced with its fellow crewmen back to the Flying Dutchman, with his disembodied head scuttling after, desperately trying to catch up.

During the battle around Calypso's maelstrom, the Dead Man's Chest landed on Hadras' head, pushing it into his torso and sending him toppling overboard. His fate is unknown but it is possible that he survived.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Hadras was portrayed by two actors. Reggie Lee, who also played Tai Huang, portrayed Hadras (credited as "Headless") in Dead Man's Chest, while Ho-Kwan Tse portrayed Hadras in At World's End.
  • In the production screenplay drafts of Dead Man's Chest, Hadras was depicted as speaking a mixture of Japanese and English rather than Cantonese and English.
  • Screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and the ending credits for Dead Man's Chest, confirmed that Reggie Lee played "Headless". But in the ending credits for At World's End, the character's name was "Hadras", a name which first appeared in production drafts for Dead Man's Chest.
