Captain Jack Sparrow, when you place the figure on the Disney Infinity Base.

Captain Jack Sparrow is a main character of the Pirates of the Caribbean series. The figure is a starter and playable character of Disney INFINITY.

Jack Sparrow was released on August 18th 2013 at launch, and a Crystal Figure of Jack was released on November 15th exclusively on UK Amazon, and was released worldwide at Toys “R” Us later.

Jack  has red bandanna, a gift from Jack’s lover Esmeralda. It’s always wrapped around his head, along with his piece of eight (Siamese coins woven into Moroccan beads) draped over his forehead. After his piece of eight was destroyed Jack replaced it with a new trinket which appeared to be made from two things Jack has fought and lived through, the Kraken and the East India Trading Company (the pirate “P” brand). Jack later replaced the Kraken tooth with another trinket that had finger bones with a Chinese lucky coin tied to some copper wire around one, and a barrel bead around the other, a red bead, and one of Jack’s gold teeth at the bottom, which he lost after swallowing it.

The sash which Jack wore beneath the belt was made for him by Amenirdis, one of his previous lovers. It was said the sash had the magical ability to protect Jack from injuries or harm.

Jack Sparrow has dreadlocked dark brown to black hair and a goatee beard. Jack’s hat is his most important part of his appearance. The hat brim was used to drink water from when arriving at a well and in the crown area were trapped scorpions of a deadly variety. The only known time that Jack had less interest in his hat was after being marked with the Black Spot, when his hat was thrown into the sea by Jack the Monkey; while his crew thought they should try and retrieve the hat, Jack himself felt surviving an attack from the Kraken was more important.

Like some pirates, Jack had been known to wear rings on his finger. Only four rings were known to be worn by Jack. The first of these was an antique ring with a skull on each side and a emerald green stone which Jack wore on the index finger of his right hand. The second was a silver and jade oriental dragon ring which he obtained during an adventure in the Far East. Jack wore this ring on his left index finger until he stole his third ring, a gold and amethyst Greco-Roman ring from Tia Dalma; though was originally a gift to Angelica, who ended up wearing the ring once again. Jack then wore this new acquisition on his left index finger and moved the dragon ring to his left thumb. Jack’s final ring was a gold onyx Spanish flower ring which he stole from a wealthy Spanish widow. Before he turned to piracy, Jack received a gold ring from Amenirdis. That ring had the ability to summon Amenirdis when Jack sailed near her island, Kerma. However, that ring was lost when Cutler Beckett threw it into the sea before he branded Jack as a pirate. Along with the rings, Jack saw fit to tie pieces of worn fabric onto his hand. As well as four rings, Jack also wore a shredded wristband on his right wrist.

He had two tattoos on his right forearm marking him as a pirate; one, the distinctive “P” brand marked on pirates by members of the East India Trading Company—this one in particular administered by Cutler Beckett—and a tattoo of a sparrow flying across a setting sun. This was a well-known identifying mark, signifying that the bearer has sailed all of the Seven Seas. Jack’s back was also extensively tattooed with a 15th century poem called the ‘Desiderata’, although this was rarely seen as it was only visible on Jack’s bare back. On Jack’s left wrist was a tattered shred of old lace, which was a trophy piece from Angelica, which was most likely given to him some time after Jack had retrieved the Black Pearl from Barbossa’s cursed crew.

Jack Sparrow has three confirmed abilities. He can swing with his sword for short range attacks useful for fighting enemies. He has a Flintlock to shoot enemies with, and also has the ability to ground pound. He also can block and sidestep to avoid the enemies attacks.

Jack Sparrow also has a special compass that points to what the holder wants most.

Jack Sparrow was a legendary pirate of the Seven Seas, and the irreverent trickster of the Caribbean. A captain of equally dubious morality and sobriety, a master of self-promotion and self-interest, Jack fought a constant and losing battle with his own best tendencies. Jack’s first love was the sea, his second his beloved ship the Black Pearl. The son of Captain Edward Teague, Jack Sparrow was born onboard a ship during a typhoon. Before he was even known as “Captain Jack Sparrow”, he was simply known as Jack, a teenage stowaway who had a desire for adventure as he sailed on the Barnacle with a ragtag crew on a quest to locate and procure the legendary Sword of Cortés. Years later, Jack Sparrow was employed into the East India Trading Company, and was given command of the Wicked Wench, until he freed a cargo of slaves. As a result, Jack was branded as a pirate, while the Wench was set aflame and sunk. After striking a bargain with Davy Jones, the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, to resurrect his beloved vessel, Jack had the Wench renamed the Black Pearl and began a new life as a pirate. At some point, Jack Sparrow had obtained the title of Pirate Lord, his domain being the Caribbean Sea.

Throughout his years of piracy, he has embarked on many adventures. After 2 years of being captain of the Black Pearl, during which time he searched for the Shadow Gold, Jack set out to find the Treasure of Cortés. Jack lost the Black Pearl in a mutiny led by his first mate, Captain Hector Barbossa. 10 years later, with the help of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, Jack managed to retrieve the Black Pearl after having fought and killed the cursed Barbossa, thereby becoming its captain once again. Jack was soon after the Dead Man’s Chest, to settle his debt with the fearsome Davy Jones, which ended with him taken to Davy Jones‘ Locker by the Kraken. After escaping with the help of his crew, led by the resurrected Hector Barbossa, Jack had joined with the Brethren Court in the battle against Lord Cutler Beckett, who had control over Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman. Jack would later sail on stranger tides during the quest for the Fountain of Youth, where he contended with the notorious Blackbeard and the beautiful Angelica, who forced him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge.

Over time, Jack Sparrow became a center of many myths and legends were told of his exploits. Many of these tales were exaggerations and even fabrications, some being concocted by Jack himself to bolster his reputation. Despite his dishonesty Jack Sparrow did embark on a number of adventures, some involving the supernatural, pirate lore, and journeys in discovering hidden treasures. Jack’s ultimate ambition was to have the freedom to sail the seas as a legendary pirate for eternity.
