History Before the Timeskip (1522 AOP)Edit
Living on Fishman Island, Dorsalo idolized the Sun Pirates: Jinbe, Arlong, and especially Fisher Tiger. He and his close friend/brother Mako aspired to become pirates just like them. However, upon depature from Fishman Island, the two brothers were captured by Celestial Dragons, sold into slavery, and separated. Dorsalo was sent to Arctic island, where he was a slave for friends of the Celestial Dragons.
In Coldhearted SlaveryEdit
Dorsalo toiled for two years working for the greedy friends of the Celestial Dragons. His main assignment was shoveling the neverending snow so his employers would have a place to walk. Any chance of escape was thwarted by the many guards and careful security. One particulary cold day, Dorsalo collapsed and was unable to move due to frostbite. As he lay there, a man approached him, and Dorsalo began to feel warmer. The man was Jack Gamble, and he took Dorsalo to a cave so he could get warm. Dorsalo told Jack about his past, and realized that they both aspired to become infamous pirates. Jack and Dorsalo decide to form a pirate crew with Jack as the captain and Dorsalo as the swordsman. They fight several guards and make their escape to the Red Dagger.
Down with the SicknessEdit
On Apueblo Island, the Swashbuckling Pirates stay with the Apueblo Tribe, which currently has come down with fever. Unfortunately, Dorsalo also falls ill and is treated by Swamp Fox while Jack and Swamp Fox go into battle against the Yellow Bandits. By the time Dorsalo has recovered, the bandits have been defeated and Swamp Fox joins them as their doctor and sniper.
On Dabloon Island, Jack runs off in search for treasure. Dorsalo and Swamp Fox decide to take a more calm approach. They wander along the beach, digging in random spots. They see a ship on the horizon and Dorsalo swims out to investigate. It ship ends up belonging to the Avalanche Pirates, and Dorsalo battles them on deck. Dorsalo learns that the Avalanche Pirates seek the buried treasure of Dabloon Island. Their captain, Captain Rocky, has a brief fight with Dorsalo, who is forced to retreat because he has no weapons other than his nose. Back on shore, Dorsalo reunites with Swamp Fox, and they continue their search. They find Jack working for the Gonzo Pirates and prepare to help him escape when the Avalanche Pirates arrive again. This time, Dorsalo and Swamp Fox team up and defeat Captain Rocky. The Swashbuckling Pirates end up finding the treasure and leave Dabloon Island.
