"Feast your eyes, Captain. All of them, faithful hands before the mast. Every man worth his salt. And crazy to boot."
―Joshamee Gibbs on the Motley Crew, including Kursar.[src]
Kursar was a pirate recruited into Captain Jack Sparrow's crew at Tortuga prior to the pursuit of Hector Barbossa and the Black Pearl. Kursar had red hair, a beard and blue eyes, and wore a tricorn hat.

BiographyEdit

At some point, Kursar joined the crew of the commandeered British Royal Navy vessel HMS Interceptor under Jack Sparrow. He had been hired by Joshamee Gibbs in Tortuga. They sailed through a storm, during which Kursar and the other crewmen were soaked in the rain. He looked over the rail of the Interceptor into the sea as the ship passed through a dangerous passageway the next day. They later arrived at their destination, Isla de Muerta, where Jack Sparrow and William Turner went into the island alone. Will later came out without Jack, but the crew kept to the Pirate's Code and went on without him. When the Black Pearl attacked the Interceptor, Kursar and Duncan were stationed atop the mast, climbing up the rigging as the Pearl chased their ship. The Interceptor later turned around to fight the Pearl and its crew, but Kursar stayed on the crow's nest with Duncan. They fell off when the rigging was knocked down by a cannonball. Both survived and were taken prisoner with the other crewmen. They were imprisoned, left in the command of two cursed pirates. However they were later freed from their cell by Elizabeth Swann and took over the Black Pearl. Though refused to help her rescue Will and Jack from Isla De Muerta, they later rescued Jack from the gallows and he became captain once more. [1]

He continued to serve in Sparrow's crew for the next year, however he, Leech and many other crewmen planned to lead a mutiny on Jack. They were unhappy with Jack's leadership, and felt they needed to do more 'Pirate' things. When Jack suddenly woke them up in the middle of night, they rushed to their stations, shocked at their Captain's strange behaviour, especially when he ordered them not to retrieve his hat when it fell overboard. Later, when they were captured by the Pelegostos Tribe, Kursar was likely killed as he did not accompany the crew on their escape. On an inquiry on where the rest of the crew had gone, one pirate replied that the bone cages the prisoners resided in weren't built until after the pirates had arrived on the island.[2]
