Angler was a hulking man who had spent enough time aboard the Dutchman to take on the appearance of various aquatic flora and fauna. His head had transformed in that of an Anglerfish. His large, blue-hued body was covered in barnacles, and he had fin-like protrusions on his right hand. He appeared to wear a form of armor over his torso. He also appeared to have a pegleg. He was one of the four most trusted mates aboard the Flying Dutchman, along with Maccus, Ratlin, and Penrod.
