"Aye, the Cook. Perfect."
Blackbeard shortly before punishing the Cook[src]

The Cook was a pirate who operated during the mid-18th century. During the quest for the Fountain of Youth, the Cook joined the crew of the Queen Anne's Revenge, where he took part in Jack Sparrow's mutiny. The Cook would be killed and later turned into a zombie, a fate handed to him by Blackbeard.


Early life[]

Not much is known about the Cook's early life, but it is known that he took the life of piracy prior to the mid-18th century. Several years after the War Against Piracy, the Cook went to the pub called the Captain's Daughter, located in Londontown. It was here that the Cook, along with a number of sailors and pirates, signed on to sail under Jack Sparrow.[2]

Aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge[]

"The topic, gentlemen...is mutiny. Mutiny most foul."
"Aye. I signed up to sail under Jack Sparrow, not some pretender."
"And a lady at that."
"And mention was failed to made of this uncanny crew.
Jack Sparrow, Salaman, Ezekiel and Cook[src]

Climbing aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the Cook worked as one of the ship's chef for the next five days, where he would work with a shanghaied Jack Sparrow. He later met with Jack and some of the other crewmen, who were not satisfied with sailing under Angelica and her zombie crew, and took part in Jack's mutiny aboard the Revenge. During the fighting that erupted during the mutiny, the Cook took advantage of an impaired Gunner by leaping upon and subduing the man. Jack's crew were soon victorious until Blackbeard himself came out of his cabin. Blackbeard, in response to being told that the proceedings were the ends of a mutiny, hung all of the crewmen, including the Cook, with the rigging of the Queen Anne's Revenge.[2]


Blackbeard inquired as to which crewman stood watch, after which the Gunner turned towards the Cook. As punishment, Blackbeard sent the Cook aboard a longboat where he would row across the ocean as the bow of the Queen Anne's Revenge turned towards the Cook's direction. As soon as the Cook rowed a couple of yards away from the ship, Blackbeard had his crew watch as the Revenge unleashed Greek fire upon the Cook.[2] After a few firings, the Cook was believed to have been killed his body was retrieved to be zombified. An undead Cook guarded Blackbeard's cabin after this took place.[4] He later died, as with all the other zombies, after Blackbeard himself died in the Fountain of Youth.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

"Perhaps you will pray for him to be unharmed? Yes? No. Of course not. You pray only for what chance might offer on its own, least the weakness of your God be revealed."
Blackbeard to Philip Swift[src] (screenplay draft)
