Katracho was a crew member aboard the Black Pearl, serving under Captain Jack Sparrow, and, following his mutiny, Hector Barbossa. Katracho became cursed along with the rest of Barbossa's crew when they stole the treasure from the Chest of Cortés at the Isla de Muerta, and spent the following decade attempting to lift their curse. The curse was ultimately reversed by the combined efforts of William Turner and Jack Sparrow, though Katracho and the crew were forced to surrender to Commodore James Norrington aboard the HMS Dauntless. Katracho was likely taken back to Port Royal to be executed.


Katracho joined the crew of Captain Jack Sparrow prior to the search for Isla de Muerta, and served under Sparrow until the night of Barbossa's mutiny. Dog Ear and the rest of the crew stood by Barbossa against Jack, who was then marooned while the crew, now serving Barbossa, continued on to Isla de Muerta. There, they took the treasure of Hernán Cortés and spent it all on life's pleasures. It was only later that the crew realized the treasure was cursed. Katracho found himself unable to die, and unable to feel neither pleasure nor pain. Under moonlight, he and the crew became walking skeletons, and the undead men began their quest to return all eight hundred and eighty two gold coins to Isla de Muerta.

Years later he participated in the attack on Port Royal, slaughtering many civilians. He and the rest of the cursed crew returned to the Pearl with Elizabeth Swann as a prisoner. It was Katracho who served the dining table for Captain Barbossa and Elizabeth Swann, lighting the candles and dishing out the food as other crewmen brought it in. During the boarding of the HMS Interceptor, Katracho remained aboard the Pearl and nearly managed to hit Elizabeth with a musketoon, laughing out loud as he fired it.

Katracho, like most of the other pirates from Barbossa's crew, fought against the British Royal Navy onboard the HMS Dauntless when Commodore Norrington's men launched an assault on the island. Katracho battled the Navy crew until the curse was lifted, and, upon seeing Koehler dead, dropped his cutlass and was taken back to Port Royal to be hanged.
