This man was a midshipman serving aboard the HMS Dauntless under Commodore James Norrington of the British Royal Navy.
At some unknown point likely in his early life, this man became a midshipman serving in the British Royal Navy. He would be stationed aboard the HMS Dauntless under an unnamed captain around 1720 during the ship's crossing from England back to Port Royal. When the young boy, William Turner, was found at sea on a piece of driftwood, the crew lifted him aboard the ship. This midshipman and an ensign came down from the quarterdeck to see what was going on, and were ordered to rouse the captain immediately. As they went to do so, neither them nor the rest of the crew witnessed the Black Pearl sailing past them.
Eight years later, this man attended Norrington's promotion ceremony. When Elizabeth Swann fell off of Fort Charles, the whole Dauntless crew rushed to the docks to find her, only to discover that the pirate Jack Sparrow had already saved her, along with Murtogg and Mullroy. Jack was, despite protests from Elizabeth, put in chains, and was to be taken prisoner. The pirate, however, suddenly grabbed Elizabeth, and Governor Swann ordered the soldiers not to shoot. Jack managed to swing on a crane to safety, and escaped by running into the town. James and Gillette ran after him, but stopped outside town. This officer and the rest of the crew continued to run after him.
When the Interceptor was docked outside Port Royal, this man was talking to several others as they prepared to leave. However, the Dauntless was spotted sailing away under the command of the pirate Captain Jack Sparrow and the blacksmith William Turner. The crew boarded the Interceptor and went to confront them. As the whole crew boarded the Dauntless, Sparrow and Turner swung aboard the Interceptor and left for Tortuga. As Sparrow had disabled the rudder chain of the Dauntless, she was left floating in the harbor. The midshipman's further fate remains unknown.
