Captain Fyter was a solider in love with Nimmie Amee. When the Wicked Witch learned of this, she enchanted his sword until he gradually dismembered himself and had all of the parts exchnaged for tin by Ku-Klip, the tinsmith. He then rusted in a forest until he was found by Woot the Wanderer, the Scarecrow, and Nick Chopper the Tin Woodman, who had suffered a similar fate over the same girl.
Ku-Klip, meanwhile, using some magic glue he found in the Wicked Witch of the East's castle after Dorothy Gale's house fell on her, assembled the remains of both men together. He called this man, which bore Captain Fyter's original head, Chopfyt. This creature married Nimmie Amee, who reminded her of both men, particularly with one tin arm when Ku-Klip misplaced both men's remains.
Captain Fyter has both tin brains and a tin heart, neither of which Ku-Klip gave to Nick Chopper.
