Creating a Pirate
Before you start playing Pirates of the Caribbean Online, you'll need to create a Pirate. Nearly every aspect of your Pirate's appearance can be customized to your taste. Each Basic Access account can hold up to two different Pirates, while each Unlimited Access account can hold up to four.
Choose a Name
Use the selection of Pirate names to customize your own name, or if you want to type your own custom Pirate name, click Type a Name, then enter the name you would like to use in the text box. That name will be reviewed and, if approved, will become your Pirate name. You will be assigned a temporary Pirate name to use while your custom name is being reviewed.
Locking a Pirate
By default, any Pirate can be played by anyone logging in to one of your family's accounts. If you want to create a personal Pirate that no one else can share, simply Lock your Pirate on the main Pirate section screen. After you've done this, only that Pirate's creator or an account administrator can play or unlock that Pirate.
