Winston was part of 'The Flying Dutchman's' crew and played the character Palifico in both Dead Man's Chest and At World's End. Palifico's general appearance was more reef than man, with a fire coral crest atop his head, and a coral-and-bone structure forming a tough exoskeleton on his body. In place of eyes, nose, and mouth, Palifico had a cluster of tentacles and two tube worms sprouting from his eye sockets. He wielded twin, barnacle-encrusted blades in combat; a dao and a cutlass that gradually fused to his hands.
