"And Marty the dwarf. He's got a fighten' spirit, I tell 'ee, several sizes larger than his size."
Joshamee Gibbs[src]

Marty was a dwarf pirate that operated in the Caribbean. People say that the best things come in small packages; Marty was no exception. Diminutive but tough, Marty packed a powerful punch, whether it was on board a ship or battling against adversaries three times his size. He served under Captain Jack Sparrow aboard the Interceptor, the Black Pearl, and the Dying Gull.

Following the adventure at Isla de Muerta, Marty was captured along the Crew of the Black Pearl at Isla de Pelegostos, but with the help of Will Turner, he and his companions managed to escape and subsequently accompanied Jack in the search for the Dead Man's Chest. After the search for the Dead Man's Chest, Marty was one of the few to survive the attack of the Kraken. Marty was also one of the many pirates who fought against Lord Cutler Beckett's Armada for their freedom. Many years later he would be involved in the quest for the Trident of Poseidon.


Motley crewEdit

Jack's crewEdit

Not much is known of Marty's life. Marty was recruited by Sparrow and Joshamee Gibbs in Tortuga following the kidnapping of Elizabeth Swann by Hector Barbossa. Marty joined the crew of the commandeered HMS Interceptor and sailed to Isla de Muerta to rescue Swann. During a battle with the Black Pearl he served as a cannoneer, loading various objects, including Gibbs' canteen, into the Interceptor's cannons. Marty was ultimately captured along with the rest of the crew, but later rescued by Elizabeth at the island. The crew absconded with the Black Pearl on their second trip to the island, with Marty reminding the crew that Jack had promised them a ship back on Tortuga. However, the crew returned to save Jack at Port Royal. Marty continued to serve onboard over the next year.[4]

Search for the Dead Man's ChestEdit

"Did we kill it?"
"No. We just made it angry.
―Marty and Joshamee Gibbs referring to the Kraken[src]

Marty commented that Jack was acting stranger than usual during his hunt for the key to the Dead Man's Chest. The crew was captured by the Pelegostos after Jack realized the Kraken was pursuing them, and Marty was one of the few to escape Pelegosto Island. He informed the crew the Flying Dutchman was falling behind during the chase off Isla Cruces, and supervised the crew in hoisting a net of gunpowder during the attack of the Kraken. He survived the battle and joined the diminished crew in lamenting the loss of both Jack and the Black Pearl at Tia Dalma's shack. Marty agreed to travel to World's End to bring Jack back from Davy Jones' Locker.[5]

At World's EndEdit


Marty participated in the battle in Singapore, firing a large gun whose recoil knocked him backwards. He was part of the shore party that happened upon the corpse of the Kraken, and alerted his captain to the presence of the Empress.[6]

Afterwards when Jack questioned if anyone came to his rescue just because they missed him, Marty was the first to raise his hand and was joined by a few others which pleased Sparrow.[6]

He later used a Blunderbuss to take potshots at Davy Jones' crewmen during the battle around Calypso's maelstrom. Marty remained onboard the Black Pearl when Barbossa staged his second mutiny, continuing to serve aboard the ship.[6]

Quest for the Trident of PoseidonEdit

"You want us to pay you?"
―Marty to Jack Sparrow[src]

Leaving JackEdit

Marty helped steal the entire bank of St. Martin along with Joshamee Gibbs, Scrum, and the rest of Dying Gull crew. When the robbery failed, Marty was outraged when Jack suggested the crew pay a captain's tribute since the robbery was a failure. The crew abandoned Jack, only to be paid by Henry Turner to help free Jack and Carina Smyth on the day of their planned executions. With the help of Henry and Carina, Jack Sparrow led the crew on a quest to find the Trident of Poseidon, in a race against Armando Salazar and the Silent Mary.[7]


After the escape, the crew went in search of the Trident of Poseidon, not knowing why their re-appointed captain was interested in doing so. The Trident could be found with Diary of Galileo Galilei, which was in possession of Carina Smyth and despite initially being denied help, they managed to help. However in less than a day of travel the crew when the crew discovered that they were being pursued by death, they immediately aim their guns at Jack in frustration, which Jack then decides to call upon mutiny, having Henry Turner and Carina Smyth join him on a rowboat. The mutiny ended up putting Joshamee Gibbs as the captain.[7]


Shortly afterwards, Gibbs discovered that the Essex were following with the intent to arrest them. Gibbs quickly surrendered his post as Captain to Scrum and when they were captured, Scrum was badly beaten by the navy soldiers as a result.

After that, the crew were placed in a cell as Gibbs planned their escape by stating they need something sharp. Marty interjected by saying he wouldn't find anything sharp in the cells before they noticed Scrum's sharp toenail and held him down to remove it.[7]

On the Black Pearl againEdit

The escape was successful as the crew broke out of the cell and made their way on a rowboat. After putting good distance between them, Gibbs discovered that the Black Pearl had been returned to its natural state and sailing again. Seeing the opportunity, the excited crew quickly made their way to the vessel and Marty joined the crew in fighting off Salazar and his men who soon retreated after the Pearl reached Black rock island.

Marty stayed aboard the ship while Barbossa, Jack and Carina transverse the island to locate the trident. After the destruction the Trident of Poseidon, which caused all the curses of the sea to be undone; the walls of the sea started closing in on the tomb threatening to drown all left inside. Barbossa had the crew lower the anchor to save everyone and made the decision to sacrifice himself to save his daughter. Upon learning of his former captain's demise, Marty held his hand on his chest in respect.

Afterwards Marty joined the crew of the Black Pearl in accepting Jack as their captain, his faith in Jack was restored as he was shown following his orders with no problem as the ship sailed off. Marty's further fate is unknown. [7]

Personality and traitsEdit

People say that the best things come in small packages; Marty was no exception. Marty packed a powerful punch, and it didn't matter whether he's on board the Black Pearl or battling with East India Trading Company soldiers.[8] Diminutive but tough, Marty was a pirate of short stature but tall spirit, unafraid to go up and battle against adversaries three times his size.

Among other crew members, Marty was a diminutive pirate. He was bald and had a long thin beard that was woven into a single strand. Marty had one earring and wore a multi-coloured waistcoat with a white shirt, a belt, a pair of black shoes and baggy breeches. On his neck Marty wore many keys, symbolising that he himself was something of a womanizer, possessing the keys to the hearts of so many women.

Behind the scenesEdit

"My character was originally named Dirk, but somebody—I think it was Gore Verbinski—preferred to use my real name instead."
Martin Klebba[src]
