Captain Nemo, also known as Prince Dakkar, is a fictional character featured in Jules Verne's novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and The Mysterious Island (1874).

Nemo, one of the most famous antihero in fiction, is a mysterious figure. The son of an India Raja, he is a scientific genius who roams the depths of the sea in his submarine, the Nautilus, which was built on a deserted island. Nemo tries to project a stern, controlled confidence, but he is driven by a thirst for vengeance and wracked by remorse over the deaths of his crew members and even by the deaths of enemy sailors.

Nemo is Latin for "no one", and also (as νέμω) Greek for "I give what is due" (see Nemesis).

It may be that when Jules Verne visited Scotland, he was influenced by the Scottish motto Nemo me impune lacessit ("No-one provokes me unpunished"), reinterpreted as "Nemo provokes me unpunished."
