- "Do you remember what happened to Sven, Jackie?"
"They didn't force him into servitude as a cook on a navy vessel, where he would be forbidden to ever prepare that lovely raksifsk again, did they?"
"Almost as terrible. They hanged him at the docks of Port Royal, under a huge sign that read, Pirates, Be Ye Warned!"
- ―Edward Teague and Jack Sparrow
Nothing is known about Sven's early life, except that he joined the Caribbean pirates and became known as Sven the Vicious. At some point before Captain Teague's search for his missing son, Jack Sparrow, Sven was captured by the British authorities and hanged at Port Royal, Jamaica. Many years later, when Jack himself sailed to Port Royal aboard the Jolly Mon, he saw the corpses of Sven and two other unlucky pirates, with a "Pirates, Ye Be Warned" sign hanging next to them.
