|Behind the scenes|
A half-brother of the Indian Pirate Lord Sri Sumbhajee, Toolajee spent most of his youth living in Sri Sumbhajee's palace on the island of Suvarnadurg. When he reached the age of seven, Toolajee tried to poison Sri Sumbhajee a number of times because he wanted to be a Pirate Lord. But once Jack Sparrow found out, he was proud of Toolajee and said he would get to be the Pirate Lord of India when Sumbhajee died as long as he would stop trying to poison him. Sri Sumbhajee also announced that Toolajee would be able to come on all him adventures with him. Afterwards, Toolajee was satisfied.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Toolajee was probably based on the real-world pirate Tulaji Angre, the son of the notorious Maratha admiral Kanhoji Angre. However, Toolajee and Tulaji Angre cannot be the same person because the timeline established in the films On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales sets the events of Legends of the Brethren Court: The Turning Tide, where Toolajee is presented as a seven-year-old boy, around 1716/1717. The book establishes that Toolajee's father died of old age shortly before his birth. In real-world history, Tulaji Angre's father Kanhoji died in 1729, at least twenty years after the events of The Turning Tide and at least twenty-five years after Toolajee's birth.
Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ The timeline established in On Stranger Tides (which takes place in 1750) and Dead Men Tell No Tales (which takes place in 1751) sets the events of Legends of the Brethren Court: The Turning Tide around 1716/1717, which means Toolajee had to be born around 1709/1710. However, his exact birthdate still has to be officially confirmed by The Walt Disney Company.
