- "Part of the ship, part of the crew."
- ―Old Haddy along with the rest of the crew.
At some unknown point in his life, Old Haddy became a member of the Crew of the Flying Dutchman under Captain Davy Jones. Old Haddy commonly wore a stocking cap and a green, sleeveless shirt. He was covered in mussels and fought with knuckledusters. It seems like he had only one eye.
When Will Turner appeared aboard the Scuttled ship, the crew fought the young man, Haddy among them. Eventually, Crash knocked him out. Davy Jones boarded the ship, and Turner revealed that Jack Sparrow was nearby aboard the Black Pearl. Old Haddy and the other crewmen boarded the Pearl, and held back the Motley crew as Jones and Sparrow negotiated.
Under Maccus, Haddy and the other crewmen traveled to Isla Cruces in Jones' stead as the captain could not step on dry land. The crew discovered the Dead Man's Chest empty, and, hearing the bell tower, put two and two together and headed to the tower. On the way, they found and ambushed Pintel, Ragetti and Elizabeth Swann, dueling them in sword combat. Haddy and Quittance teamed up to fight them, but were both cut down on numerous occasions by the trio. Later he was one of half of the crew that were crushed by the large wheel on top of which Will Turner and James Norrington were fighting. The Motley crew escaped with their lives, much to the dismay of Davy Jones. Later when the Dutchman ambushed the Pearl off Isla Cruces, Haddy manned the cannons and fired on Jack Sparrow's ship. The ship got away, but was soon tracked down and teared apart by the Kraken.
He was present as the East India Trading Company crew of the HMS Endeavour under Lord Cutler Beckett boarded the Flying Dutchman. The East India Company soon took over the ship. By order of Beckett and Jones, he and the crew attacked Sao Feng's flagship, the Empress, and executed most of the crew.
He later fought in the battle of Calypso's maelstrom. During the battle, he manned the cannons aboard the Dutchman, and was blown backwards by opposing cannonfire. He regained his humanity when Will Turner took over the Dutchman, thus lifting the curse cast upon the ship and its crew by Calypso.
