|Behind the scenes|
This man was a sailor who served aboard the Edinburgh Trader as the ship's quartermaster during the time of the East India Trading Company's appearance in Port Royal. The Quartermaster showed a superstitious nature, as noted by Captain Bellamy.
When the dress of the stowaway Elizabeth Swann was found aboard the Edinburgh Trader, the Quartermaster assumed it to mean the ship was haunted by a female presence. The Quartermaster spoke up to Captain Bellamy when questioned, saying that all the men had felt the presence of the spirit. The Quartermaster and the bursar argued over what to do with what they perceived to be the dress of the female spirit.
The bursar's suggested solution to the perceived ghostly threat was to throw the dress overboard, however the Quartermaster contended with this saying that such actions would only anger the spirit. He was killed during the Kraken's attack on the Edinburgh Trader.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The Quartermaster was portrayed by Steven Spiers in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. The character was credited as "Quartermaster/Edinburgh" in the film's credits.
- In the rought script draft of Dead Man's Chest in January 2006, the Quartermaster's fate was left ambigous. He was last seen before Captain Bellamy was killed by the Kraken. As the draft doesn't mentioned that he was one of the many survivors who were killed aboard the Flying Dutchman, this means that he was indeed killed by the Kraken offscreen during the attack, presumably when the Kraken destroyed the Edinburgh Trader.
- In a deleted scene from Dead Man's Chest, titled "Every Man for Himself", which depicts the Quartermaster and some survivors of the Kraken's attack escaping to a safe location in a rowboat. But after taunting Will Turner, the Quartermaster and the other survivors were killed by one of the Kraken's tentacles. The scene plays out similarly in the film's screenplay drafts. However, as it was not revealed if this happened or not, it is unknown if it is canon or not.
