Kingdom Hearts Wiki

Elizabeth Swann is the daughter of Governor Weatherby Swann of Port Royal. Though she appears to be weak, nobody has any idea of what she is truly capable of. She is first encountered in Kingdom Hearts II. In the game, Elizabeth is captured by pirates and has to be rescued by Will Turner with the help of Jack Sparrow, Sora, Donald, and Goofy.


Elizabeth is a spirited and independent-minded character. Throughout the three films, she transforms from a modest young lady into a courageous pirate. Elizabeth has always been fascinated by piracy and life at sea, but she is also revolted by pirates' aggressive, wild nature, especially when she meets Captain Jack Sparrow, who made his escape from Port Royal at her expense. However, she was grateful to him for saving her life, and unsuccessfully attempted to prevent his arrest. She thinks very logically, and is at first skeptical of Barbossa when he tells her about the pirate's curse.

She shows weakness in her strong personality when Barbossa steps into the moonlight and reveals to her his true self. Her strong intellect is also shown when she is compared to Will, Jack and Sora. Will and Sora, because of their strong sense of justice, tend to jump into battles, not thinking about the consequences. Jack only thinks of himself, and this selfishness is a quality that she does not possess.

Even after becoming a pirate, she retains her sense of propriety, as well as her loyalty and compassion for loved ones (namely Will Turner, her father, and later, Jack Sparrow). She has feelings for Will Turner (feelings which are more then mutual).

Physical Appearance

Elizabeth has fair skin, brown eyes and long, dirty blonde hair. She wears an elegant, gold and white lace dress with floral patterns decorating the sides, and a more abstract pattern adorning the front.


Kingdom Hearts II

First Visit

Elizabeth is first captured by the undead pirates, as she tells them that her surname is Turner. Sora and company arrive in Port Royal just as she is being taken prisoner. They try, but fail, to rescue her.

Later Sora, Donald, and Goofy help Jack Sparrow and Will Turner command the Interceptor, the fastest boat in the British Navy. With it, Sora and friends rescue Elizabeth and, after some complications, defeat Captain Barbossa and the undead pirates.

Second Visit

Elizabeth reappears on the Black Pearl during Sora's second visit to Port Royal. She alerts the party that Will has gone missing. They later find him on the Interceptor and manage to save him. Thereafter, Sora and the others are attacked by Luxord's Nobodies and Heartless and get blown to another ship, which is then destroyed.

She doesn't reappear until Sora finds all the medallions that are stolen by the Gambler Nobodies, right before the second battle with the Grim Reaper Heartless.

After the battle, she helps get rid of the Aztec treasure and agrees with Jack to join his crew.

Kingdom Hearts III

Elizabeth and the others travel into Davy Jones' Locker to retrieve Jack and the Black Pearl, encountering Sora, Donald, and Goofy in the Locker as well, before returning to confront both Davy Jones and Cutler Beckett, with Elizabeth elected Pirate King by the Brethren Court to lead them into battle against Beckett's armada of Royal Navy ships under the flag of the East India Trading Company. However, most of this happens while Sora is busy taking his own ship provided by Tia Dalma, the Leviathan, back to Port Royal for repairs due to damage from the Heartless, and when he rejoins the Black Pearl, he is brought up-to-date on what he missed regarding the Brethren Court meeting at Shipwreck Cove and going to war against Beckett and Jones. When Will is mortally wounded by Jones during the Battle of Calypso's Maelstrom, Sora, Donald, and Goofy, take over Bootstrap Bill's role with attacking Jones in a blind rage to allow Jack time to have Will stab Jones' heart and kill him. Afterward, Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Jack, take Elizabeth and return to the Black Pearl as Will and the Flying Dutchman sink into Calypso's maelstrom, before turning their attention to Beckett as he advances towards them with his flagship, HMS Endeavour, to finish off Jack and the Pearl, before the Dutchman resurfaces with Will at the helm as the new captain. Both ships flank the Endeavour and deliver a devastating double broadside to it. Beckett's Royal Marines abandon ship when they realize the ship is doomed, while Beckett remains frozen in shock at having been outmaneuvered before the powder magazines explode, and finish off the Endeavour and Beckett, forcing the EITC/Royal Navy armada to retreat in defeat. Sora soon learns that Elizabeth now has to say goodbye to her new husband as, with Will now the captain of the Dutchman, he must now fulfill the duty of ferrying souls to the afterlife until he can set foot on land again in ten years. Sora feels upset about the circumstances regarding Elizabeth and Will's cruel fate but is assured by Jack that their one day together before Will departs is enough for their hearts to say what they need to say to each other.
