"The doll."
Quartermaster to Angelica[src]

This voodoo doll was a magical object created as a model of Jack Sparrow. Hand-made by Blackbeard himself, the doll was initially created to force Jack to lead Blackbeard to the Fountain of Youth. Actions performed on the doll could be felt by Jack, whether it was torture through cruel actions or toying with his emotions. The doll eventually found its way into the hands of Angelica.

History

Quest for the Fountain of Youth

"If I do not make it to the Fountain in time...neither will you."
Blackbeard to Jack Sparrow[src]
OSTJackDollcarved

The doll being carved by Blackbeard.

When it came to the dark arts, there were many ways to enslave unwilling victims, but one of Blackbeard's most trusted methods was the voodoo doll.[2] And so, after the mutiny aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, Jack Sparrow was brought into Blackbeard's cabin for a talk, during which Blackbeard made a voodoo doll of Jack. The doll proved to work perfectly when Blackbeard performed cruel actions upon the doll, which Jack felt. As Blackbeard carved on the doll with a knife, Jack felt an instant heavy pain on his chest, and discovered a bloody scar resembling a devil's pitchfork in its place. As for an influence, Blackbeard then put the head of the doll over a lit candle, which gave Jack terrible head pains and forced him to help lead Blackbeard to the Fountain of Youth.[3]

The Jack Sparrow voodoo doll also had an effect on Blackbeard's daughter, Angelica, as Blackbeard's effigy of Jack Sparrow could allow Angelica to toy with Jack's emotions. As Jack and Angelica conversed about whether saving Blackbeard at the Fountain would be worth it, the two attempted to steal the Jack voodoo doll from the other, until the Queen Anne's Revenge arrived to Whitecap Bay. As she saw it as an effective tool to toy with Jack Sparrow, Angelica kept the doll in her possession. She had it as Blackbeard's crew journeyed through the island where the Fountain of Youth was located. Later, when Jack Sparrow asked the Quartermaster if he would survive a jump over a chasm, the Quartermaster asked Angelica for the doll, which he threw down the cliff. Jack screamed as the doll fell down until it splashed down, though it proved that Jack would survive the jump.[3]

OSTJackvoodoodollonSolaFide

The doll washes on Sola Fide Beach.

Because of the Quartermaster's action, the doll was seemingly lost forever. However, for unknown reasons, as if by fate, the Jack Sparrow voodoo doll ended up being washed ashore of Sola Fide Beach, a small island that Angelica was marooned on by Jack Sparrow himself. Angelica picked up the doll and smiled.[3]

Design and power

"I wonder...does it work because it works, or because you believe that it works?"
"Or because I
want you to believe that it works?"
"Or because you want me to believe you are only pretending for it to work? When in fact, it does.

The Jack Sparrow voodoo doll.

There were many ways to enslave unwilling victims through the dark arts, and one of Blackbeard's most trusted methods was the voodoo doll. Cruel actions performed upon the doll can be felt by the person it represents; in this case, the doll that was a fair effigy of Jack Sparrow. Real human hair was used on doll, possibly taken from subject[2][4], and real leather was used for the doll's swordbelt. The doll's belt buckle was made from cloth, as metal can disrupt dark magic.[2]

The voodoo doll had a strong effect on Jack Sparrow when it was in use. Blackbeard carved through the doll with a knife, which ended up giving a cut-like wound on Jack's chest. The doll also allowed Angelica to toy with Jack's emotions.[2]
