Mistress Ching is a character who appears in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.  She is a blind woman who serves as the Pirate Lord of the Pacific Ocean.

Appearances

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Ching instilled a strict code of conduct among her crew: no stealing from villagers, no deserting, and no taking women as prisoners. Failure to follow these rules would result in death by decapitation.

Ching was one of the Nine Pirate Lords, and although she voted for herself just like all the rest, she openly supported fighting the East India Trading Company once Elizabeth Swann became the Pirate King. She fought both the East India Trading Company and Davy Jones' crewmen, and she celebrated among everyone else once the battle was over and Lord Cutler Beckett is defeated for good.

Other Appearances

The Price of Freedom

Ching was one of the pirate-lords assembled in this book to deal with a group of rogue pirates.  She votes in the book for the court to summon Davy Jones for assistance.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (video game)

In this video-game, she and Villanueva are encountered at a brothel.  She engaged the villainous Captain Villanueva in battle, since Villanueva was keeping Jack Sparrow from attending the Brethen Court. After a fierce battle, Villanueva knocked Ching's head against a gong, knocking Ching out.

Trivia

  • Mistress Ching is based on the historic Madame Ching AKA Ching Shih (1775-1844).  The historic Ching is renowned for being the single most succesful pirate in recorded history; having commanded an enormous fleet of hundreds of ships and tens of thousands of men, dwarfing the navy fleets of several countries. She was an expert swordswoman, a brilliant businesswoman, and a skilled strategist.
    • The Pirates of the Caribbean films are set decades before the historic Ching Shih would have been born with Mistress Ching's character in practice serving as an easter-egg.
    • Older drafts for the film would have included famous pirates such as Blackbeard, Anne Bonny, Calico Jack Rackham and possibly Captain Hook.  While these were scrapped, Ching's reference remains.
    • Ching being found working at a brothel in the video-game could be an allusion to how the historic Madame Ching was originally a prostitute who came into ownership of her own brothels.
