"If all that I have achieved today is that the hangman will earn two pairs of boots instead of one, then so be it. At least my conscious shall be clear."
William Turner Jr. on the executioner.[src]
The Executioner was a man who was given the job of executing pirates and criminals. He conducted the botched hanging of Jack Sparrow as well as the mass executions carried out by Lord Cutler Beckett. Underneath his mask he had a bushy grey beard.

Biography Edit

The executioner lived in Port Royal and was dedicated to his profession. He directed the failed execution of Jack Sparrow, in which Sparrow was saved by Will Turner. Will admitted that he did not care if he had failed and the only thing that he had achieved was that the executioner had earned two pairs of boots instead of one, since his conscious would be calm.[1]

He also directed the mass execution of pirates in Port Royal. When a child was to be executed, the executioner made him stand on a barrel. However, all the prisoners began to sing Hoist the Colours, but were soon silenced by the executioner. His further fate remains unknown.[2]
