- "She goes good, sí, Capitán?"
"She goes very good indeed."
- ―Domingo Velasquez and Jack Sparrow
Domingo Velasquez was a young Spaniard. At some point in his life, he joined the crew of the Black Pearl.
- "You will be pleased when we clear the harbor and put up the t’gallants and royals. I believe that with the wind, the Pearl will be the fastest ship you've ever sailed on. Uncatchable, savvy?"
- ―Jack Sparrow to Domingo
Not much is known about Domingo's early life. It is known that his father was a pirate on the Venganza under the command of Don Rafael.
In the 1710s, Domingo was on the pirate island of Tortuga, where he joined the pirate crew of the Black Pearl under Captain Jack Sparrow. When the Pearl sailed from Tortuga for Shipwreck Island, Domingo was at the helm, but he soon gave the place to his captain.
