The Chef was a human man.
The Chef worked as a chef on the Jolly Roger. He was rarely ever seen out of the ship's kitchens. It is unknown if he still works for Captain Hook, or if he was fired or killed or reformed.
Behind the scenes Edit
The Chef was meant to appear in Peter Pan, but was cut, possibly because he was racially offensive (as he was a stereotypical caricature of a Chinese man). Despite this, nothing contradicts his existence. The only remaining evidence of the chef are a model sheet, a storyboard, a piece of concept art, and a scale model.
