"A moment, please."
Weatherby Swann to the sentry.[src]

This man was a Royal Marine who served aboard the HMS Dauntless under the command of Commodore James Norrington, earning the position of sentry aboard the ship. In 1728, the Dauntless's crew, including the sentry, was tasked to accompany Norrington to Isla de Muerta to save Will Turner from Hector Barbossa's clutches.


Not much is known about this man's early life. At some point of his life, this man became a Royal Marine at the service of King George II placed at Port Royal, which was governed by Governor Weatherby Swann. He was assigned the position of sentry aboard the HMS Dauntless, commanded by Port Royal's Commodore James Norrington.[1]

Around 1728, when the Dauntless was anchored at Isla de Muerta to rescue Will Turner from Hector Barbossa, the undead captain of the Black Pearl, the sentry stayed aboard and guarded the door to Elizabeth Swann's cabin, where she was locked by Lieutenant Gillette. After Governor Swann decided that he wanted to talk with his daughter, he asked the sentry to leave this post. The sentry then participated in the battle aboard the Dauntless.[1] His further fate is unknown.
