|“||Perhaps on the rare occasion pursuing the right course demands an act of piracy, piracy itself can be the right course?||”|
— Weatherby Swann
He is a middle-aged, balding man with a big heart and aristocratic nature. Though clever and intelligent, he was often too trusting of those around him and expects common courtesy and the law to win out.
Though generally mild-mannered and refraining from violence, Weatherby is not afraid of confrontation, especially when it comes to the safety of his daughter. He even defied a royal warrant presented by Cutler Beckett when he freed Elizabeth from jail with the intent of sending her to England and avoid a certain death by hanging.
Though the game is set prior to his death, Weatherby does NOT appear in the Pirates Online game, except in portraits which appear in various places around the islands, such as the Gold Room, Barbossa's Grotto, and Fantifico's Manor, and Yuletide Manor It can be also seen in Governor's Mansion.
Elizabeth Swann, however mentions him when the player first meets her, saying that he has gone on a long trip overseas and will not come back, pertaining to the release of the Black Pearl. He is also interested the the Nine Rogues paintings.
