Along with another officer, this soldier chased the supposed witch Carina Smyth through Saint Martin after she broke out of her cell. However, they weren't able to catch her, and the two had to report to Lieutenant John Scarfield. Scarfield warned him that if he couldn't catch her, he would be hanged instead of her. The two soldiers went off to find her as Scarfield left.
Later on, after Carina was arrested and was to be executed along with Captain Jack Sparrow, the soldier sat near Scarfield and Mayor Dix. However, as the two were about to executed, Jack's crew appeared and fought the Royal Marines, rescuing Sparrow and Carina. He and another officer accompanied Scarfield to the prison where the witch Shansa was being held. The two stood with Scarfield as he spoke with the witch.
The soldier was later stationed aboard the Essex, chasing down Jack Sparrow and Carina Smyth. While the soldier talked to Scarfield, another officer spotted Jack Sparrow's ship, the Dying Gull, and captured the crew, only to discover that Scrum was now the captain and Sparrow was gone. They threatened to beat Scrum to death until the crew revealed where Jack had gone. However, the pirate crew later managed to get out of their cell and escape in a longboat.
The Essex later found the Black Pearl, being captained by Hector Barbossa. Just as they were about to fire the Essex's cannons on the Pearl, the crew heard a strange noise behind them, which turned out to be the Silent Mary, which crushed the Essex, killing the whole crew.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The Young soldier was played by Travis Jeffery in Dead Men Tell No Tales. The character was credited as British soldier, like several other characters in the film. The name Young soldier came from the film's official novelization.
- In the film's novelization when the soldier gave his report about Carina Smyth's escape to John Scarfield, the lieutenant furiously grabbed him by the neck and threw him on the ground before threatening to hang him in Carina's place. The same scene was included in the prequel novel The Brightest Star in the North: The Adventures of Carina Smyth.
