Ragetti was a member of Captain Hector Barbossa's pirate crew serving as a cannoneer aboard the Black Pearl. He had lost his right eye and it had been replaced with a wooden one, which constantly fell out of it's socket. He was rarely seen without his partner in crime, Pintel. Together they served on the Black Pearl. Soon after joining a mutiny against Captain Jack Sparrow, the crew of the Pearl became cursed by Aztec Gold. They spent the next ten years trying to lift the curse.
