Jack Sparrow and Tai Huang[src]

Tai Huang was the captain of Sao Feng's guards, stationed in Singapore at the time of the rescue attempt for Jack Sparrow. Huang was known to regret the idea of using the Singapore sewer system as an underground hide-out.[1]


Tai Huang met Elizabeth Swann and Hector Barbossa in Singapore prior to their meeting with Sao Feng. He had little respect for Elizabeth, and asked her to remove her weapons and articles of clothing before entering Sao Feng's bath house. He later participated with Sao Feng in the battle with the East India Trading Company. He later joined the journey to save Jack Sparrow.[2]

Huang and his men later accompanied Hector Barbossa's crew to World's End in the Hai Peng, as per a deal arranged by William Turner. He pledged his alliegance to Jack Sparrow in Davy Jones' Locker, on the basis that, as the captain of his own ship, Jack was the "highest bidder". Huang and his men sailed with Sparrow out of the Locker.[2]

Huang and his men served dutifully under Captain Sparrow's command and followed all orders given. However, when the Black Pearl stopped on a small island to take water, Huang and his men turned on Sparrow's crew when the Empress was spotted off-shore—as part of one further deal made by Feng and Turner. Feng ultimately helped Barbossa's crew fight off the HMS Endeavour, and Huang boarded the Empress as it sailed to Shipwreck Cove.[2]

Huang was on the Empress serving as first mate when the Flying Dutchman attacked, killing Sao Feng. Feng declared Elizabeth the captain before he died in the battle, and Elizabeth then informed a injured and shocked Huang of the change. Huang did not see Elizabeth as fit to be the captain, yet he identified her as such when Davy Jones boarded the damaged vessel. He was locked in the Dutchman's brig along with Elizabeth and the crew.[2]

Huang escaped the Flying Dutchman with the crew when James Norrington broke them free. During the battle aboard the Empress, he had his left arm in a sling; during the skirmish, he sustained some injury. Huang joined Elizabeth during the meeting at Shipwreck Cove, where she took Feng's seat. During the conclave, Barbossa maintained that they must free Calypso from her human form; upon hearing the protesting Pirate Lords, Huang maintained that Sao Feng, were he alive, would have agreed with Barbossa. At this point in time Huang seemed to have a newfound respect for Elizabeth and treated her properly as captain, this may have been because Elizabeth chose to remain with the crew in the brig than have James's quarters.[2]

Huang led the Empress in the battle against Lord Cutler Beckett's armada and survived the battle against the East India Trading Company's forces. Shortly after this, some of his men went on to be part of the Black Pearl's crew under Captain Barbossa's command.[2] His fate is unknown.

Appearance and equipment

Tai Huang was an Asian man who, during his tenure with Sao Feng, had a scarred, burned face with one faded eye, a long scraggly moustache and beard and wore his waist-length black hair in a ponytail. He commonly sported a woven straw workman's hat and a studded leather cloak. Huang owned a French single-shot flintlock pistol with a small bayonet attached, carried on his belt along with a Dao. Huang wore sandals with short-legged trousers.[1]
