|“|| I've heard stories of a mighty Spanish captain, El Matador Del Mar. A man who scourged the sea, hunted and killed thousands of men."|
"No, no, no. Men, no. Pirates!"
|~ Barbossa and Salazar|
Armando Salazar was the legendary and ruthless, yet terrifying pirate hunter who haunted the Caribbean. Hailing from Spain, Salazar was a Spaniard, a high-ranking officer of the Spanish Royal Navy and the decorated capitán of the powerful pirate-hunting warship, the Silent Mary. For many years, Salazar terrorized the seas and killed thousands of pirates until his spectacular fall from grace when a young pirate named Jack Sparrow outsmarted the ruthless pirate killer and led him to his death in the mysterious Devil's Triangle.
However, through the dark powers of the Triangle, Salazar was resurrected more powerful than ever, but cursed to wander the world as a ghost for eternity. Hungry for revenge, Salazar escaped from the Triangle's relentless hold and led his crew of deadly ghost sailors on a mission of vengeance to obtain the legendary Trident of Poseidon to finally eliminate pirates and kill Jack Sparrow to avenge the life that was taken from him. During the battle for the Trident, Henry Turner destroyed the Trident and Salazar recovered his human form along his crew, but was wounded by Hector Barbossa during his attempt to board the Black Pearl via the anchor and drowned along his remaining crew when the ocean closed.
