Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.
I never knew this :-O
This just makes me fall in love with Jack even more.

what is this man trying to do to me?!
a little old lady at the pharmacy told me she liked my plugs & asked about the tattoo on my back, high-fived me when I told her it said “this girl doesn’t die in the end”, and then informed me that next week she is getting her first tattoo, her deceased husband’s name in a heart (*whispering*) “on my titty”
my personality varies from unbearably clingy to disturbingly distant and there is no inbetween
if u think my constant vocal feminism is annoying imagine how annoying the patriarchy is to me
