You... You have distinguished yourself in battle, amigo! You are worthy in my eyes! You may use this ship, the Black Skull, anytime you like.
~ Cortez acknowledging Mario as worthy of riding his ship
That reminds me, amigo... If you ever get the urge to return to Keelhaul Key, just say the word, okay? I will send you to the island faster than the fastest winds blow, comprende?
~ Cortez

Cortez was a minor antagonist of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, serving as the central antagonist of Chapter 5.

Appearance

Cortez appears as as a giant skull wearing a Pirate's hat with solid blue eyes. During the battle with Mario, he has four skeleton arms utilizing several types of weapons (Hook, Sabre, Rapier, and a Cutlass).

Personality

At the first glance, Cortez behaves eerily, talking in a moaning, spooky voice to warn anyone who approaches his ship. When encounter, he swiftly reveals his true personality as a merciless pirate. He talks with a pirate dialect and wastes no time battling Mario. Though he is revealed to be somewhat honorable after the conflict as he concedes defeat and takes time to listen to Mario. After the chapter, Cortez seems to lighten up, becoming helpful and friendly towards others.
