|“||What are you looking at, weirdo?||„|
|~ Hedley to Jim Hawkins.|
Hedley's physical alien appearance consists simply of a pink human head with gold dreadlocks (which are actually his arms and legs that are very similar to tentacles, making him look like a cephalopod), which is why he is constantly perched on top of the head of his comrade named Torrance (an alien who resembles a pink human torso; it is most likely that the two pirates are brothers).
At first, Hedley is seen giving Jim a disrespectful comment (asking "What are you looking at, weirdo?"). During the voyage, the ship encounters a supernova. While securing lifelines of all pirates so that they will not get lost, Jim saves Silver from falling just in time. The supernova then devolves into a black hole, where Arrow falls to his death. The burst of shock waves and maximum engine power enable Amelia to pilot the ship to safety. Amelia mourns the loss of Arrow, and suspects Jim of failing to secure the lifelines, while Arrow's line was actually cut by the most dangerous insectoid alien named Scroop. Meanwhile, Hedley and the pirates corner the group here; using a back door, Jim, B.E.N., and Morph return to the ship in an attempt to recover the map. Both Hedley and Torrance are one of the only few pirates to survive during their mutiny, as they are arrested by Captain Amelia and Dr. Delbert Doppler for their crimes alongside the remaining crew. Despite his arrest, Hedley is last seen cheering along with the rest of the crew for Jim for saving them from the exploding planet.
