Jack Sparrow is an infamous pirate active in the Caribbean, most notably as the captain of his ship the Black Pearl. Within the Brethren Court, he holds the title of Pirate Lord, his domain being the Caribbean Sea.
Born at sea during a typhoon off the coast of India, Jack quickly grows to become the stuff of legend and many tales are told of his exploits (most of these tales however are fabrications concocted by Sparrow himself to bolster his reputation). Despite his many deceptions though, Jack does embark on a great number of adventures, many of which involve the supernatural. Jack's ultimate ambition is to achieve immortality, and the freedom to sail the seven seas as a pirate for eternity.
Sparrow is noted for his flamboyant and eccentric demeanor, characterized by a slightly drunken stagger and wild, flailing arm and hand gestures. Personality-wise, he can be treacherous, surviving mostly by using wit and negotiation rather than weapons and force; although he will fight if necessary, he tries to flee most dangerous situations.
