Wheelback was a crewman aboard the Flying Dutchman, under the command of Davy Jones. As his nickname implied, Wheelback had a ship's wheel embedded in his back.

BiographyEdit

At some unknown point in his life, Wheelback became a member of the Crew of the Flying Dutchman under Captain Davy Jones. Wheelback's left hand was fused with a club, which he used in battle along with a hooked melee weapon. He had a compass in place of his left eye. Besides the ship's wheel, Wheelback also had a number of rusty chains and other numerous pieces of metal conjoined to his body, giving the appearance of armor. When Will Turner appeared aboard the Scuttled ship, the crew fought the young man, Wheelback among them. Eventually, Crash knocked him out. Davy Jones boarded the ship, and Turner revealed that Jack Sparrow was nearby aboard the Black Pearl. Wheelback and the other crewmen boarded the Pearl, and held back the Motley crew as Jones and Sparrow negotiated.

Later, as several crewmen were working around the ship, Wheelback carried a lantern around the ship. He watched as Davy Jones had William "Bootstrap Bill" Turner punish his son. He watched as Maccus, Koleniko, and Clanker played Liar's Dice, and then looked on as William Turner challenged and played against Davy Jones. Wheelback was, later, one of the crewmen who turned the Kraken Hammer, and was whipped by Jimmy Legs. He executed a crewman of the Edinburgh Trader after the ship was ripped apart by the Kraken.

Under Maccus, Wheelback and the other crewmen traveled to Isla Cruces in Jones' stead as the captain could not step on dry land. The crew discovered the Dead Man's Chest empty, and, hearing the bell tower, put two and two together and headed to the tower. On the way, they found and ambushed Pintel, Ragetti and Elizabeth Swann, dueling them in sword combat. Wheelback was cut down on numerous occasions by the trio. Later he was one of half of the crew that were crushed by the large wheel on top of which Will Turner and James Norrington were fighting. The Motley crew escaped with their lives, much to the dismay of Davy Jones. Later when the Dutchman ambushed the Pearl off Isla Cruces, Wheelback manned the cannons and fired on Jack Sparrow's ship. The ship got away, but was soon tracked down and teared apart by the Kraken. Wheelback witnessed Jones' rage when he opened the chest and discovered his heart was not there. 

During the maelstrom battle, he fell into the maelstrom when he swung on a rope at Jack Sparrow when he smashed into another of Davy Jones' crewmen, who was trying to do the same thing. Later he fought a Chinese pirate on the ship's deck. He was later seen with the rest of the surviving crew when Bootstrap Bill Turner cut out his son's heart.
