"My wife ran off with my dog, and I'm drunk for a month, and I don't give an ass rat's if I live or die."
―Skinny man and Joshamee Gibbs[src]

This man was hired by Joshamee Gibbs to serve under Captain Jack Sparrow aboard the Black Pearl. Although the man was not informed, Jack intended to give his new recruits over to Davy Jones in order to appease his debt.


The man had apparently fallen on hard times after his wife ran off with his dog, after which he became a drunkard. He drank for a month and didn't care if he lived or died before being recruited in Jack Sparrow's crew in the Twelve Daggers tavern in Tortuga. The skinny man relayed his tale to Gibbs, who was happy to recruit the man for their particular deed. Shortly afterwards, he showed loyalty to his new captain when James Norrington threatened to shoot Jack. The man was one of two recruits to restrain the former commodore, leading to a bar brawl.

The Skinny Man

The skinny man aboard the Black Pearl.

After climbing aboard the Black Pearl in its search for the Dead Man's Chest, the man participated in the battle against the Kraken off Isla Cruces. While preparing for the Kraken's attack, the skinny pirate informed Gibbs that the crew was low on gun powder. Gibbs then ordered him to load the rum, with which the man was very unhappy. Before the net with gun powder was used, the man was ultimately killed by the Kraken.
