A character from Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean films portrayed by actor Jack Davenport. The character is often showed as a proper military man, but as seen in the film Dead Man's Chest, he has a rough and freer side, but ultimately, he returns to his proper ways. It is safe to say that Norrington is British born and wealthy as he has power and was seen as the ideal match for Elizabeth. However, he resigns from his military post after he makes an error that costs him his crew and ship.

In the film, Curse of the Black Pearl, Norrington is in love with and becomes engaged to Elizabeth Swann, but cancels the engagement knowing that she was in love with William Turner.
Quotes by James Norrington:
'I intend to see that any man who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate brand gets what he deserves: a short drop and a sudden stop.'

'My story? It's exactly the same as your story, just one chapter behind.'

'Our destinies have been interwined, but never joined.'
