"Apparently there's some sort of high-toned and fancy to-do up at the fort, eh? How could it be that two upstanding gentlemen such as yourselves did not merit an invitation?"
"Someone has to make sure this dock stays off limits to civilians.
"
Jack Sparrow and Murtogg[src]

Murtogg was a marine in the British Royal Navy, and was stationed at Port Royal in the Caribbean, under Commodore James Norrington's command. He was often seen serving alongside his fellow marine, Mullroy. Later, he became part of the East India Trading Company and ultimately became a pirate in Hector Barbossa's crew on the Black Pearl.

Biography

Royal marine

"This dock is off limits to civilians."
"I'm terribly sorry, I didn't know. If I see one, I shall inform you immediately.
"
―Murtogg and Jack Sparrow[src]
Murtogg Mullroy Guarding Interceptor COTBP

At the time of Norrington's promotion ceremony held at Fort Charles, Murtogg and Mullroy were assigned the task of guarding the dock at which the HMS Interceptor was berthed. Although they carried out their duty loyally, they proved little match for the trickery of Jack Sparrow, and ended up engaged in conversation with the pirate aboard the Interceptor. Although dutiful, they both proved incapable of rescuing Elizabeth Swann when she fell from atop the fort's battlements (because neither of them could swim) and this forced Jack to dive into the ocean to save her.[1]

"That Jack Sparrow. He talked about the Black Pearl."
"Mentioned it is more what he did.
"
―Murtogg and Mullroy[src]

Following the attack on Port Royal by the Black Pearl, both were part of the assembly of officers and marines at the fort who attempted to devise a plan of action against the Pearl. When Will Turner appeared to state the obvious, Norrington ordered Murtogg to escort Turner away. Later on in the discussion, Murtogg suggested that Norrington ask the recently-incarcerated Jack Sparrow about the Black Pearl, but the Commodore rejected the idea. Will Turner, however, took this advice, and consequently set out on a quest to track down the Pearl with Jack.[1]

The Royal Navy ultimately set up a search for Elizabeth, who had been captured during the attack, and Murtogg and Mullroy were stationed aboard the HMS Dauntless. They participated in the fight against Hector Barbossa's undead pirates aboard the vessel, sharing a brotherly handshake before charging into battle, and survived the conflict.[1]

During the War of Jolly Roger, when the Black Pearl was captured by the Navy and moved to Black Pearl Island, both Murtogg and Mullroy were assigned to guard the ship. However, they were unsuccessful because the ship was stolen right under their nose by a group of pirates.[2] The pair were later assigned to guard Port Royal prison. While there, they were able to thwart an escape attempted by Ragetti and Pintel.[3]

"Someone has to stay and guard the chest.
"
Jack Sparrow and Murtogg[src]

Around the time the Flying Dutchman was commanded by the newly-promoted Admiral James Norrington, Mullroy and Murtogg served the East India Trading Company. When they first saw the Dutchman's crewmen, both soldiers was frightened by their appearances, although they were ordered by Admiral Norrington to stay steady. They were tasked with guarding the Dead Man's Chest, training cannons on it to prevent Davy Jones from regaining control of his ship. The chest was ultimately stolen by Jack Sparrow while Mullroy argued the representation of the "fish people" with Murtogg. They later joined the battle around Calypso's maelstrom, eventually switching sides with the death of Lord Cutler Beckett, adopting piratical outfits and joining in with the celebrations aboard the Black Pearl. They were the only known survivors of Beckett's forces on the Dutchman, having swung across to the Black Pearl and then apparently abandoning fighting.[4]

Afterwards, the two put on pirate attire and joined in celebrating the death of Lord Cutler Beckett. Though Ragetti and Pintel noticed them, the two didn't seem to care and didn't harm them. They remained aboard as crew members during and following Barbossa's second mutiny, though joined Pintel and Ragetti in confronting Barbossa over this course of action. Nevertheless, they appeared set to remain aboard.[4] His further fate is unknown.

Personality and traits

Murtogg

"You've seen a ship with black sails, that's crewed by the damned and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out?"
"No."
"No."
"But I have seen a ship with black sails."
"Oh, and no ship that's not crewed by the damned and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out could possibly have black sails, therefore couldn't possibly be any other ship than the
Black Pearl, is that what you're saying?"
"No.
"
Mullroy and Murtogg[src]

Murtogg was considered to be highly skeptical when it comes to anything involving the supernatural, and regarded his partner's distrust that the Black Pearl wasn't a real ship with derison. When Cotton's parrot dirtied Mullroy's jacket with its droppings, Murtogg told him that it was a sign of good luck, so Mullroy was content to leave it there—soon after, Murtogg's face was dirtied by the parrot, and Mullroy wiped the droppings from his face onto his red jacket.
