Captain:Lord Cutler Beckett
The HMS Endeavour was the flagship of Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company. Endeavour led the EITC Armada during the War Against Piracy. Beckett maintained an expansive cabin in the Endeavour, which contained a large globe to complement the map of the world that was painted in his office in Port Royal.
The HMS Endeavour was a first rate, hundred gun ship of the line, notable for its service as the command ship of the East India Trading Company. It convoyed Lord Cutler Beckett to Port Royal for the arrest of William Turner, Elizabeth Swann, and James Norrington. It remained moored at the harbor while Beckett set himself in command of Port Royal. When Beckett assumed control of Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman, the Dead Man’s Chest was brought aboard the Endeavour, with Jones’ heart inside, though it was ultimately returned to the Flying Dutchman. Former commodore James Norrington was stationed onboard the Endeavour, during which time, he was promoted to Admiral for the Company’s naval forces. It was on the Endeavour that Norrington was reunited with his sword from his days serving in the Royal Navy.
Flagship against Piracy
Temporary capture of the Black Pearl
Jack Sparrow was later brought aboard the Endeavour when Sao Feng betrayed the crew of the Black Pearl. Upon arrival, Beckett and Jack struck a deal after much jostling and bargaining. Jack Sparrow asked Beckett to square his debt with Jones and guarantee his freedom. In exchange, Jack promised to give the location of Shipwreck Island to Beckett.
