Monk was a crew member serving aboard the Black Pearl under Captain Jack Sparrow and, following the mutiny, Hector Barbossa. He has Swords, one of them was stolen by Jack and given to Will Turner during the battle at Isla de Muerta that followed. He was one of the three pirates which stayed on Isla de Muerta with Barbossa, Sparrow and Turner.
Monk joined the Black Pearl's crew of Captain Jack Sparrow prior to the search for Isla de Muerta, and served under Sparrow until the night of the First Mate Hector Barbossa's mutiny. Monk and the rest of the crew stood by Barbossa against Jack, who was then marooned at Rumrunner's Isle 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. Monk 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, around 1728, Monk participated in the attack on Port Royal, slaughtering many civilians. He and the rest of the cursed crew returned to the Pearl with the Governor Weatherby Swann's daughter Elizabeth as their prisoner. As with the crew, Monk retired from Port Royal after Elizabeth and Barbossa negotiated with a Parley.
At Isla de Muerta, Monk was knocked into the water by Jack Sparrow, who took his sword and gave it to Will. Once Monk was out, Will shoved a pot on his head. Once he got it off he was hit by Elizabeth Swann with a gaffe. Turner and Swann teamed up to spear Jacoby along Monk and Weatherby together on the gaffe. Will placed a grenade inside Jacoby's skeletal form, and pushed him out of the moonlight, trapping it in his flesh-and-blood body. The bomb exploded, killing Monk and his mates once and for all. Sometime later, Monk's remains were swallowed by the waters when Isla de Muerta was retaken by the sea.
