Nipperkin was a member of Hector Barbossa's Cursed crew, forsaken upon taking a piece of gold from the Chest of Cortés. He participated in the batle aboard the HMS Dauntless, during which he lost his arm and, once the curse was lifted, likely bled to death.
Nipperkin 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. Nipperkin 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. Nipperkin 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.
Nipperkin, 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. When the curse was lifted, Nipperkin surrendered to the British with the rest of the crew.
