Born on Rykers Island, The Ghost grew up in it's most crime filled part, Alcatraz Town. Ruled by Pirate gangs, Alcatraz town is one of the seediest cities in the Grand Line. He grew up on the streets, having never known his family. He was informally adopted by a gang known as the "Stripes". The stripes gang was a group of local troublemakers, but had commited few actual crimes.
He grew up in the gang, learning how to live on the streets as well as how to fight. However, after a pirate crew called Press gang came to town, a fight broke out amoungst the pirates and the Stripes. The Stripes gang was wiped out, with The Ghost being the only survivor. The pirates went on to become a dominant gang in the city, controlling a large portion of Rykers Island.
Swearing revenge, The Ghost snuck into their hideout with a pair of revolvers. He created a distraction by lighting a nearby warehouse on fire. UInside, he confronted the Press Gang leader. Althoguh brave, he was not very skilled, and in the firefight, he was shot in his leg. Attempting to flee, he ran into the treasure room, where he found the Gas Gas fruit. hearing the legends of the Devil Fruits, he ate it, and used his new power to create a smokescreen and fled.
Having learned his lesson about being prepared, he spent many months training his new powers and aquiring equipment to fight the Press Gang. The Press gang went out to the Docks of Alcatraz Town to purchase a weapons shipment form an arms deal. The Cape Snuck aboard and attacked the crew. Later that, he set the ship on fire. . As the people watched, the large galleon lit up the night in a huge inferno of flame. It crashed into the docks and a mysterious figure disappeared into the fog. The crew was never found. This was the first public sighting of the man who would come to nkown as The Ghost.
