Commodore James Norrington.
He looked into the mirror. Formal wigs were all very well, but had a distressing tendency to slip in the heat of the Caribbean sun.
Brushing away imaginary specks of dust, he surveyed himself once more. Though not vain, Norrington's innate sense of propriety had been reinforced daily throughout his childhood. He could almost hear his mother's voice saying, "Show that you respect yourself and others will respect you too, Jamie."
She would have been proud of him today, he thought. For his promotion, but more when -- if -- no, when he asked Elizabeth to be his bride.
