"Light 'em up! Muster your courage! Drive 'em to shore!"
―Purser during the battle at Whitecap Bay[src]

Purser was a sailor who operated during the mid-18th century. During the quest for the Fountain of Youth, Purser joined the crew of the Queen Anne's Revenge, where he served under the infamous pirate Blackbeard. He took part in Jack Sparrow's mutiny and the battle at Whitecap Bay. Purser would be killed during the crew's mermaid hunt.


Early life

Not much is known about Purser's early life, but it is known that he took the life of piracy prior to the mid-18th century. Several years after the War Against Piracy, Purser went to the pub called the Captain's Daughter, located in Londontown. It was here that Purser, along with a number of sailors and pirates, signed on to sail under Jack Sparrow.[1]

Quest for the Fountain of Youth

"The topic, mutiny. Mutiny most foul."
"Aye. I signed up to sail under Jack Sparrow, not some pretender."
"And a lady at that."
"And mention was failed to made of this uncanny crew."
"Make my toes curl, they do.
Jack Sparrow, Salaman, Ezekiel, Cook, and Purser[src]

Climbing aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, Purser worked as one of the ship's deckhands for the next five days, where he would work with a shanghaied Jack Sparrow. He later met with Jack and some of the other crewmen, who were not satisfied with sailing under Angelica and her zombie crew, and took part in Jack's mutiny aboard the Revenge. Jack's crew were soon victorious until Blackbeard himself came out of his cabin. Blackbeard, in response to being told that this was a mutiny, hung all of the crewmen, including Purser, with the rigging of the Queen Anne's Revenge. Purser and the rest of the crewmen were let down to witness the Cook's punishment.[1]

Purser at Whitecap Bay.

During Blackbeard's mermaid hunt on Whitecap Bay, Purser was forced to sit in the boat, which was filled with powder barrels. When the mermaids started their attack he threw barrels into the water in order to pursue the mermaids to the shore. Then the boat capsized and he was stuck in the boat as the barrel exploded.[1]
