―Harbormaster being bribed by Jack Sparrow[src]

The Harbormaster was a British government official responsible for supervising the harbor at Port Royal. With his wig, spectacles, and tricorn hat, the Harbormaster seemed like a loyal servant of the King, but years of mixing with maritime riffraff had corrupted him. When Captain Jack Sparrow offered a small bribe of three shillings to keep his arrival secret, the Harbormaster couldn't resist and accepted this bribe.

The Harbormaster at the docks.

He was once a loyal servant of the king, though years of exposure to maritime riffraff left him corrupt. He would often accept bribes to supplement his meagre government salary, allowing him to afford fine clothes. He was commonly seen sporting a wig, spectacles, and tricorne hat.[1]

The Harbormaster accosted Captain Jack Sparrow when he arrived in Port Royal aboard the sinking Jolly Mon. Jack offered him three shillings to ensure his name did not appear on the Harbormaster's ledger. The Harbormaster accepted this bribe, though did not notice Jack stealing his purse as the pirate swaggered away.[2]
