HMS Dauntless in Port Royal harbor

Oh, the Dauntless is the power in these waters...

The HMS Dauntless was a British Ship of the Line and flagship of Commodore James Norrington's Royal Navy forces stationed at Port Royal.

Originally the ship's lieutenant, James Norrington, accompanied Governor Weatherby Swann and his daughter, Elizabeth Swann, from England. Joshamee Gibbs was also a crewman at that time.

She carried over 80 guns, including rows of standard six-pound guns and a cannonade of 'long nines', plus a full compliment of Royal Marines.

The Dauntless was at anchor at the Port Royal harbor when Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner attempted to commandeer it. Norrington pursued in the HMS Interceptor and boarded the Dauntless, only to find the ship deserted. The theft was a deception by Sparrow to commandeer the Interceptor after disabling the flagship's rudder chain.

After battling and defeating the cursed crew of the Black Pearl, the Dauntless returned to Port Royal to imprison the pirates and convey Jack Sparrow to his execution at Fort Charles, though the pirate again escaped Norrington's clutches.

It is unknown if the Dauntless was part of Cutler Beckett's armada in his war against piracy. It is rumored that the vessel was lost in a hurricane, while pursuing pirates and that may have cost Norrington his commission in the Royal Navy.
