The Hook Hand Pirate also known as the Treasure Keeper in merchandise is an unnamed pirate appearing in the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.
The Treasure Keeper was a pirate in the 18th century and a crew-mate of the pirate-ship The Wicked Wench. At some point in time he lost his left-hand and replaced it with a golden hook. He participated in the ransacking of the Spanish town of Puerto Dorado on the Caribbean island of Isla Tesoro.
With the crew searching for the island's legendary treasure, the keeper was given the job of interrogating the town's magistrate Carlos; namely on the location of the town's treasure and the Wench's rival, Captain Jack Sparrow. The pirate went about this with water-torture, having his men dunk the magistrate in a well and attempt to shoot his wife.
The Hook Hand Pirate appears in the well scene where he leads a small gang of pirates who have kidnapped the town officials and are torturing them in the well by lining them up to dunk in the well.
Guests witness Hook Hand interrogating the town's magistrate Carlos while questioning him about the whereabouts of the town's treasure along with the location of Jack Sparrow. In the original incarnation of the ride, he interrogated Carlos only on the location of the trasure.
