Stabbed in the back and thrown overboard
Matelot, a thin, bald man, served aboard the commandeered HMS Interceptor, and fought against the crew of the Black Pearl during their raid on the Interceptor. During the battle, Matelot was stabbed in the back and pitched into the sea.
Behind the scenes
"Matelot" is a French word meaning "seamen". In pirate slang, "Matelot" referred to a pirate who was in a union known as "matelotage" with another pirate; they shared all their possessions (even the wives) and if one of them died, the other succeeded him.
