- "We wants the redhead!"
- ―Drunk pirates on the "Redhead"
The Redhead was a wench from Isla Tesoro. She may have been the most popular girl in town, but looks can be deceiving. After being captured by the pirate Auctioneer, the Redhead participated in an auction for "brides", in which pirates disregarded Tiny for the fiery femme fatale.
After pirates invaded Puerto Dorado, the Auctioneer was selling women exclusively taken from the town in an auction. During the auction, the Auctioneer presented a "winsome wench" until a group of drunken pirates chanted that they wanted the sultry "redhead" of questionable repute, who was next in line to be auctioned. Other pirates who knew they had no chance with her tried to downgrade her by noting her infamous reputation.
When the Redhead began to show her leg seductively to the on-looking crowd of excited pirates, the Auctioneer demanded she cover herself up saying; "Strike your colors you brazen wench! No need to expose your superstructure!"
Behind the scenesEdit
- "I'm not that kind of girl!"
"All evidence to the contrary."
- ―Redhead and Jack Sparrow
- The Redhead would be adapted into the Pirates of the Caribbean films, where the character was named "Scarlett" because of her red hair.
- A portrait adorning the "Crew's Quarters" in Disneyland version of Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean is an original work by Marc Davis, a concept offering a "portrait of things to come" for the infamous Redhead. However it is unknown if this was intended as an instance of clever foreshadowing, as some have suggested the painting represented the Redhead guests meet later in the attraction's auction scene.
- In the 2012 attraction The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, the Redhead appears in a close intimate encounter with Jack Sparrow, after which she slaps him twice before leaving him.
- In July 2017 the Redhead in Disneyland Paris was changed from a captive wench into a fearsome pirate who assist the Auctioneer with the auction. The wenches were removed from the scene and the pirates have to buy the loot from the Auctioneer. In November 2017 it was announced that the scene would be also changed in Walt Disney World Resort.
