The series takes place after the events of Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow, in which he was a teenager, and takes place thirteen years before the first film in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Tia Dalma sends him and his crew off to collect seven vials of a mystical liquid metal known as Shadow Gold scattered all around the world to stop the alchemist, the Shadow Lord who gains his power from the gold from destroying the Pirate Lords with his Army of Shadows. Along the way, Jack is aided by his fellow Pirate Lords, including his first mate, Hector Barbossa, and is chased by the East India Trading Company everywhere he goes.
