NAME: Jack Sparrow

POINT IN CANON: At the end of the third movie, adrift in a dinghy.
AGE: Roughly early to mid forties
APPEARANCE:

CANON HISTORY: HISTORY WIKI
CANON PERSONALITY: Jack is at first, what appears to be your average, shallow pirate. With the exception of a marveously full and rich vocabulary, he likes his women, he likes his drink, and he likes the sea and his ship. All the normal things a pirate should like. But there are layers to Jack that are usually glossed over by the pirate and left unseen, mostly for his own benefit, because he can't have just anyone figuring him out all in one go. Things he would just as soon have no one ever know about him, because pirates are supposed to be terrifying and dangerous. One of two things Jack has proven again and again, not to be.

For starters, Jack is probably one of the few pirates with a distinct set of morals. They're buried underneath immoral actions such as being a pirate, stealing from people, impersonating priests and judges, sleeping with whores, and so on and so forth. But Jack does, in fact, have morals somewhere deep underneath all of that. He dislikes fighting, somewhat because it's dangerous work, work in general and he doesn't want to die. But he dislikes having to kill people. Oh he'll do it if he has to, fire the cannons, swordfight with navy men, but he distinctly does not enjoy randomly slaughtering innocent folk. Of course, this is written into the code and a proper pirate does not go around just murdering everyone they find. But Jack clearly has a distaste for murder.

Jack is a womanizer, and he regularly presses women beyond their comfort zones, but he is something of a harmless womanizer. Flip a few skirts, kiss a few wenches, though he'd never force a kiss on a lady. He's not exactly a gentleman, but he still knows where to stop. To a degree, anyway. Jack is... somewhat soft for a pirate, actually actively disliking other pirate captains and admitting that he would never want to be in a place full of pirates (see: Shipwreck cove), and would also like the idea of being the only pirate left. While this certainly plays into his want to be a legend and how self absorbed he is, Jack generally doesn't trust other pirates, because most of them are even worse than he is, and he's pretty terrible himself, being dishonest and thieving and a general pain in the ass.

That isn't to say that Jack can't be at all dangerous or is someone that can be easily messed with. He is, after all, a pirate. He's an intensely clever man who can think on his feet and make decisions rapidly and as he goes along. It is actually impossible to tell whether or not he thinks it all up before hand, or if he makes it up as he goes, but his plans are usually crazy, death defying, and work. He knows how to talk to people, certain people, in order to get what he wants, and is an expert at making deals and then reneging on said deals and ending up paying absolutely nothing for what he wants. Sometimes it doesn't work out, and what gets Jack in trouble the most is the copius use of his mouth. He constantly talks himself into big problems and has to wheel and deal himself back out of them, or if all else fails, lie cheat and steal his way out of them. He does have something of a silver tongue, though it's mostly bladed and tarnished at this point in his life.

He is not an honest person and almost everything Jack says should be taken with mountains of salt. He lies as he breathes and it only happens occasionally that he tells the truth, and of course each time he does 'everyone is surprised'. Of course, he lies so frequently and so easily that he can pull off the most grandoise of fibs and have it come out sounding quite real. Even Elizabeth believed his story about how he escaped being marooned, up until he admitted he was saved by rum runners. Jack likes his stories, and likes making them sound big and fantastic and generally more than what they actually were, though he has plenty of absolutely marvelous tales to tell without all the embellishments. He's something of a legend, the pirate lord of the Caribbean, he has to sound amazing. Jack will say almost anything to get what he wants, even make deals that seem to harm him, or that he hates entirely. He gave up Will and promised one hundred people to Davy Jones, but he didn't intend on leaving his friend there. Just as he never intended on giving himself up to Davy.

Jack, despite all his wiles and his intelligence, is somewhat immature, however. He was raised on board a pirate ship with a pirate for a father, he didn't exactly learn how to be a gentleman. Somehow, he managed to learn all his big fancy words from someone, as well as a bit of Latin and law terms, probably from his Code-Keeper of a father. Despite all of this, he is perfectly capable of acting like a child, mostly in his stubbornness, which rears its ugly head very often with Jack, but also in his mannerisms towards people. At the end of the third movie, when he finds his ship stolen from him again, he throws his own personal tantrum by insulting the two women he was about to try and impress with his ship, he's so upset. He gets slapped for it of course. He argues, he whines, cajoles and demands quite often, and for all his apparent social ability, still doesn't know how to act in society to a point where he'd be accepted by more normal folk. He doesn't really care either, he knows enough about people to use them, and that's all he's ever needed to know.

Jack is, for all his faults, a good man. He is (somewhat) loyal to his friends, and does what he can to help them (and himself) in the long run. He originally helped Will save Elizabeth because it meant escaping jail, getting the Pearl back, and using the man as leverage against Barbossa. But he came to enjoy Will's presence, and eventually ended up running a gambit that saved his life when he could have let him die. He attempted to comfort Elizabeth when she was upset, wasn't terribly good at it but he did his best, and he sacrificed immortality for Will and helped him to stab the heart of Davy Jones, giving up the one thing he wanted the most in life in order to keep the two people he cared the most about from being destroyed. He even betrayed Beckett and damned himself to a life of being hunted when he refused to show Cutler where to find more slaves, freeing them all before they could be taken away and sold. Jack is a pirate, a scoundrel, a womanizer, a thief and a liar, but at heart he is good with a sense of justice.

VETERAN?: Nope
ABILITIES: Jack is essentially a badass normal human with a perfectly human mortality, average strength, and average size.

His marked differences are his keen intellect and sharp wit, his ability to learn, quickly, and his ability to make up pretty damn good plans on the fly.

He's been trained in sword combat professionally, and is an excellent duelist, as well as a crack shot with a pistol.

While none of these are outside the realm of a typical human, he's still in the top percentile.

INVENTORY: HIS HAT.
Pistol
Compass
All clothes in general
A shitton of pretty shiny rings
The map he cut out and stole
1 Jar of dirt that he thought he ditched but apparently, followed him.

M A R K S;
JUSTIFICATION: Fool: He’s been called this about a billion times already in his life, and he tends to fit the description. Young at heart, reckless, wild and always on the move, Jack is in a constant state of adventure. His life isn’t complete without this freedom in front of him. He’s always searching for a better way to do something, open to almost anything that might improve his chances. Half his life choices are made at the drop of a hat, and there is, indeed, no pirate out there quite like Jack.

Chariot: If one were to look in the dictionary next to the word impulsive... Jack wouldn’t be there, but he probably should. His problems seem to stem not just from long term goal seeking, but desperate, last minute thoughts, or just a very stupid desire that happened to pop into his head at that very point and place. Like kissing Elizabeth and letting himself get chained to a ship. GJ, Jack. As far as Jack is concerned, he’s the center of the goddamn universe, and the more people that cotton on to this and notice him, the better. Yes, even the Navy. Except when they catch up. Then it’s bad attention no stop. Jack strives to be the best of the best, even if the best of the best when you’re a pirate means the thievingest, loudest, smelliest, least popular dickhole on the planet. All that matters is gold, drink, women and freedom.

Devil: Lord. Jack is obsessed with death. Rather, with not dying. Jack has dragged so many people along and down with him in his quest to forever evade the grasp of death, and even now refuses to shake himself from that goal. He doesn’t just frequently indulge in drink, sex and good food, he does it whenever he goddamn can. He sees no issue with this, and doesn’t look to alter it at all, steadily attempting to actually maintain being drunk and nearly all points of his day. He thrives off what he does, his first love was the sea, and the second was his ship, and no man, save for Davy Jones, perhaps, can claim to love the sea more than one Jack Sparrow. He’s a great big ball of vice and sin, having impersonated not just a judge, but a priest as well, because who cares as long as you don’t die?

Magician: A manipulator indeed, and Jack is probably the most confident person one might ever meet in their life, even when everything is on fire and everyone is dead and he’s dying. Totally, totally confident that he can still spin this his way. Jack is a whirlwind of creativity, seeing things in a light that no one else has glimpsed before that, and it’s this that often gets him out of his most serious predicaments. He also stands by what he says, and what he believes and wants, and is near impossible to sway from it.

Character

Character Name: Jack Sparrow

Canon: Pirates of the Caribbean

Age: Old for a pirate, probably around his mid forties.

Appearance:

Canon Point:
How will your character react to the initial night period?: Jack has dealt with horror before, whether it be undead pirates coming after him, half fish half men trying to murder him or a huge fuckoff kraken attempting to eat him. He'd eventually end up accepting (begrudgingly) the horrory bits of his new life and just start sleeping on and off in the day time so as he can be more alert at night. Though he certainly won't be happy having to share the halls with horrible beasties and evil waitstaff, and will probably attempt to run from all of them.
