"We wants the redhead!"
―Drunk pirates on the "Redhead"[src]

Redd, better known as the Redhead, was a wench from Isla Tesoro. She may have been the most popular girl in town, but looks can be deceiving. After being captured by the pirate Auctioneer, the Redhead participated in an auction for "brides", in which pirates disregarded Tiny for the fiery femme fatale. Following an encounter with Captain Jack Sparrow the Redhead became a pirate herself.


Battle of Puerto Dorado[]

After pirates invaded Puerto Dorado, the Auctioneer was selling women exclusively taken from the town in an auction. During the auction, the Auctioneer presented a "winsome wench" until a group of drunken pirates chanted that they wanted the sultry "redhead" of questionable repute, who was next in line to be auctioned. Other pirates who knew they had no chance with her tried to downgrade her by noting her infamous reputation.

When the Redhead began to show her leg seductively to the on-looking crowd of excited pirates, the Auctioneer demanded she cover herself up saying; "Strike your colors you brazen wench! No need to expose your superstructure!"

Jack Sparrow[]

"I'm not that kind of girl!"
"All evidence to the contrary.
―Redhead and Jack Sparrow[src]

At some point following the auction in Puerto Dorado, the Redhead met the notorious pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. One day the Redhead found herself aboard Jack's ship, the Black Pearl. Standing on the forecastle, the pirate captain and wench were having an intimate discussion, but when Sparrow gave her an inappropriate proposal, the Redhead slapped him, saying that she wasn't that kind of girl. Sparrow replied that all evidence was to the contrary, to which the Redhead slapped him once again, furiously leaving the ship.

Redd the Pirate[]

"Eh, send them hens to Davy Jones. It’s the rum they want!
―the Auctioneer and Redd[src]

In unknown circumstances the Redhead became a pirate herself, eventually becoming known as Redd. She joined the Auctioneer and his shipmates, participating in an auction where the possessions of the inhabitants of Puerto Dorado were being sold to the pirates that conquered the town.

Paris Redhead

The Disneyland Paris version of the Redhead.

  • In July 2017, the Redhead in Disneyland Paris was changed from a captive wench into a fearsome pirate who assists the Auctioneer with the auction. The wenches were removed from the scene and were replaced by villagers who have to surrender their loot to the Auctioneer.[4] In November 2017 it was announced that the scene would be also changed in Walt Disney World Resort.[5] The Walt Disney World version of the scene debuted on March 19, 2018, with the Redhead being given the name Redd[6] and voiced by voice actress Grey DeLisle.[7]
  • On June 2018 Captain Redd was added as a meet and greet character at New Orleans Square at Disneyland.[8]
  • In Dead Men Tell No Tales, when Jack Sparrow wakes up on the Dying Gull, he gives Henry Turner an advice on courting a brunette. In the film's novelization Jack gives Henry an advice on courting a redhead.[9] It is unknown if that was meant to be a reference to the Redhead from the ride or not.
