"How about a de-hic deal? I'm open for hire, strangers. You-you, uh, give me all the money you got and I may be obliged to help you all out of this, uh, situation."
Ikaros Much stopped dead in his tracks and turned to face the swordsman. "Hyouzou!" He angrily yelled back. "You're going to betray us now?"
The winged-man couldn't talk so he simply gave a thumbs up to the octopus...
The drunken blue-ring octopus swordsman seemed to ignore the question as he took one final swig from his gourd. His blushing cheeks didn't seem to take from his imposing stature. Hyouzou's eyes finally focused on the infuriated squid fishman.
"My allegiances lie with money; I -hic- don't work for you I work for payment." Hyouzou said. "I haven't betrayed anyone."

With that the merman mercenary lifted off the seafloor and began moving towards Ikaros. Ikaros seemed wholly unprepared as his new opponent rushed towards him with eight swords in tow. With an intoxicated giggle the venomous fishman swung his swords carelessly through two pirate bystanders; without a care for the two lives lost Hyouzou pushed onwards to a now defensively-positioned Ikaros.

Hyouzou drunkenly swings his eight swords against his opponents, one with each tentacle and two in his hands. (Requires 60 Strength and 100 Swordsmanship) DPR: A

Ikaros, with little time to ready himself, was overpowered almost instantly by Hyouzou; as Ikaros Much attempted to parry and block the incoming sword slashes with his own spears they were slashed into halves. In a moment, Ikaros had been left utterly defenseless against the traitor.
Two slashes ripped through the squid's chest, leaving him barely alive as he harmlessly fell downwards. If only the fishman commander had been ready for the betrayal he may have put up a fight.

'Damn traitor-' Ikaros thought with his last moments of consciousness. 'Dosun...Daruma...you can still save the New Fishman Pirates...'


Dosun rubbed at his head and looked up to see a very much intact ship. He looked aboard to see what had transpired; one of the humans had absorbed all of the force of his attack. He smiled at his victory and prepared to rock the ship once more when suddenly a pain raced through him; his muscles seemed to deflate and turn into loose skin.
The hammerhead's piercing red eyes drooped back down into the same tired eyes from before Dosun had taken the energy steroids.
"Nooo-!" He bellowed. "COME ON, JUST A LITTLE LONGER!"
Troya just pointed his guns at the hammerhead Fishman daring him to move while shortly afterwards came Termi and Baast.
The tired-eyed fishman was out of energy, didn't have his weapon and was dead to rights. The hammerhead closed his eyes and fell back, asleep without notice; floating carelessly in front of the royal ship.

Daruma however was still rushing from the pills. The little red fishman seemed to rush through Zenon, tearing away at his arms as he went.
Daruma engages the target with a series of savage bites in a manner so quickly that Daruma, to a viewer, would only appear to be swimming by the target. (Requires 40 Strength, 60 Speed, 70 Fido) DPR: A
Blood plumed out from the sudden wounds on the mohawk-clad swordsman's arms.

# Shaarib gritted his teeth, from what he could feel while moving towards the ship, Zenon got injured. The little fish attacked him and him and Ren were too distracted to be able to prevent anything. The red blur was at top speed he could prevent the piranha to do further damage. Carefully, Shaarib unwrapped himself. His body still under Tekkai, he bend his right knee and with his other leg kept straight; put his arm forwards and trucked little the piranha that was probably as big as his foot. If the vice-admiral was still in his bubble he would yelled something that the goddess probably would've not appreciated. He did not lose his times and charged downwards to "save" the Birkan. To tell the truth he had practically no more air in his lungs and was cold. Saving the mohawk- guy meant entering in his bubble which meant oxygen even if it was in a small quantity. With Hyouzou on their side now, he knew the fight was over.

[
Tekkai "Sai"
Requirements: 46 Mastery, 41 Strength, 41 Movement Speed and 41 Durability
DPS: B => City Level
Description: After using Geppo to project himself towards his opponent, the user uses Tekkai to harden his body, smashing the enemy.
]

On the other side, Troya was more than happy, with the hammerhead Fishman down, all the rest of the SHaaarib's had to do was o subdued the fishmen with low moral. Some of Blenny's men were quick to leave the front to try to cuffs the fallen pirates that were barely alive. Hody was dead but showing his body to the population was still a good opportunity. The dark-skinned pirate not having bullets anymore just asked for a set of first aid kits. Their party suffered today but from what it looked like. This little war was going to end soon.#

Daruma was fast enough to attempt to ready himself for the oncoming attack but not fast enough to dodge the Skypiean. The little red fishman opened his lips and revealed his large clenched fangs and used them to shield the blow.
Daruma uses his powerful jaws as a shield to block an oncoming attack. (Requires 70 Strength, 70 Fido) DPR: A

Daruma's teeth began to bend in from the immense force being exerted onto them. His eye's bulged from the pain as his teeth blasted inward and he was sent hurdling towards the ship.

The shark's teeth were demolished and his was spinning, he watched from fuzzy eyes as Shaarib swam towards the one with the mohawk. Daruma tooth a deep inhale through his gills before unleashing another attack at Zenon.
A thin shard of bone flew from Daruma's toothless maw towards the unstable bubble of the pink-haired intruder, it was already punctured from his last attack; this attack would finish it off and for good measure the cookie-cutter shark enhanced the attack with his own haki.
Daruma launches a single pointed projectile at his target, due to how narrow the projectile is, it easily pierces through skin. (Requires 25 Strength, 70 Fido) DPR: B + 1

Hyouzou swam towards the ship, slicing through fishman pirates the whole way. He quickly joined the ranks of those defending the ship against the horde. Blenny's men were caught off guard by their new ally but joined him in the last push against the rebel forces.
The forces of the New Fishman Pirates were dwindling from injury, death and loss of morale. As they looked down the combined forces of the Ryugu Royal Army, Shaarib's pirates and now the octopus merman; the pirates began to drop their weapons and/or swim away from the intruders.

Uproarious cries of victory began to rise from the royal army as they drove the pirates from their hiding place. Commander Blenny began overseeing the apprehension of the criminals. The horned-blenny fishman smiled at the results of their alliance with Shaarib.

Due to the attention on the fleeing masses, the royal army overlooked Daruma entirely. He went unnoticed as he shot at Zenon.

# Shaarib let out a sigh of relief. Zenon was hurt but still conscious. The birkan was gritting his teeth, he failed to show his worth to the others. He was trying so hard that he forgot completely about his surroundings and got caught slipping. Now he was getting helped by a man in a worse state than he was. Zenon wanted to whine but seeing Hody’s fangs still in the shoulders of Shaarib’s decided not to. That coat of his was already soaked in int.

All Shaarib wanted to do was to sleep. He knew everything was over. His shoulder hurts like hell. He punched enough people today. He could past out at any moment, the sword agent knew the fight was over but if he decided to show weakness now, he did not knew how Hyouzou was going to act. Certainly the others will be able to stop him but a what cost ?

The piranha he sent away tried one more time to attack them. Even though, he wasn’t moving at his normal speed, Shaarib’s eyes were still able to see it coming at him in slow-motion. It was hard for our pirate to maneuver the bubble but their were still to dodge it. He didn’t have the time to bother with Hody’s goon no more. This was the job of his crewmen. Ren, Termi and Baast were already near the fishman and from what it looked like, Ren was trying to tell the fish to stop fighting.

The more he was approaching the ship, the less the skypiean was able to keep consciousness. He wasn’t going to be able to get there at least not with Zenon. A shadow sneak past them and Shaarib braced himself to get hit. Nothing came, he decided to look at the new protagonist, it was Nouille. The navigator of Zenon’s team didn’t participate in the fight and decided to help. He carefully guided them to the ship were Troya already finished with an unconscious L’Homme went to support his captain the both walking towards Blenny’s quarters.

  • « Genjo, I don’t want no one interrupting this meeting between the captain and me. » said Troya with a wink.

Shaarib needed some sleep and someone to bind his wounds. They weren’t going to show some weakness in front of the king or in front of the commander. But as they walked, Shaarib’s stopped, took a deep breath and yelled :

  • « THIS IS MY ISLAND NOW BLENNY-CHAN ! BRING US BACK TO THE KING ! »
Troya shook his head and continued his path. Something never changed.#

Commander Blenny watched as the riffraff was rounded together and turned to join in the apprehension of Daruma. Daruma hissed and kicked soldiers off him while snapping at Ren with newly regrown teeth. As he extended his neck to try for a snap of Ren's nose Blenny interjected with a powerful punch to the top of the cookie-cutter shark's head; this attack knocked the little creature out cold due to how much damage he had just taken.
« THIS IS MY ISLAND NOW BLENNY-CHAN ! BRING US BACK TO THE KING ! »
The horned-blenny fishman looked to Shaarib with a looked back to Shaarib with an amazed smile. "Aye aye-" He responded with a salute.
He looked around to his men while clasping the little red fishman's hand behind his back with a pair of metal cuffs.
"Men, we're headed home! The few that escaped are long gone. Gather the casualties and let's report back to King Neptune!" He commanded his platoon.

The soldiers worked in double-time; they hauled injured fishmen from both sides of the fight onto the royal ship. When the ship seemed at maximum capacity they sent word ahead to the kingdom for a transport ship.
Most of Blenny's men stayed behind to keep the defeated pirates locked down until backup arrived; Blenny and a select few of his soliders joined the royal ship for its triumphant return to the Ryugu Palace.

Commander Blenny looked to his injured men, promising them far better medical treatment back at the palace (which he also was sure to promise L'Homme).
As the royal ship moved back towards the island, the trip seemed to many to be far shorter. The tensions were gone, The New Fishman Pirates were defeated, and upon their ship was proof: locked in chains were the unconscious commanders of the pirate crew (now drained of all energy they once had) and a dead Ikaros Much and Hody Jones.

Below deck, trapped in shackles, were nearly one-hundred insurgents that were now morale-deficient.


As the ship entered the Ryugu Kingdom it passed by the backup called for earlier, it was a large prisoner transport barge being pulled through the water by two huge armored seahorses.
Blenny finally took his eyes off his injured troops to view the incoming entrance to the Ryugu Palace. He cleaned the blood from his fist finally, as to be presentable for the king.

All was quiet while the party approached and successively entered the outer gates to the palace's bubble. Some were lost, but the victory was undeniable.
The ship finally entered the courtyard in front of the palace, the underwater castle looked just as marvelous as before. A single broadsword whirled through the sky and then through an open window to the castle (without reaction of ).

Suddenly, the palace doors fell open and fanfare sounded off for the heroes. Word of the pirates' defeat had carried upon request for transport. The guards of the palace bowed before the ship...
Commander Blenny disembarked and informed the guards of the injuries on board before entering the castle to report to King Neptune.

Inside, upon his throne, the king waited for the return of Shaarib with his three sons and two advisors by his side.

# Shaarib was grinning madly. He wasn't feeling anything, while he was sleeping Troya gave him a serious dose of sedatives. The winged-man body was so numb he was very confident he wouldn't suffer from a punch from Garp. With his stupid fast metabolism, he hoped the effect wouldn't wore off in front of the king and his court. The combat suit the marine build for him was destroyed. His cap was nowhere to be seen. He needed a new set of clothes and fast. If he went there with his blood covered attire, they will think he's a warmonger. The squadron's uniform were on Naglfar. His children were not of his size, most of them had cuts or blood on theirs. He sat there pondering while Troya took the initiative. He walked towards the deck and took Nouille's pants his coat. This was going to make presentable at least, the little blood he had on his clothes were the one accumulated on Richie's.

Now ready to engage, Shaarib began to slowly walk towards the path towards the King's room, behind him as usual was Troya. A right-hand that for once as so impressed that he had both his eyes open. The Palace was a divine sight. Around them the colors were more joyous, the anxious and wary guards were now impressed maybe it was for the burns scars on his body, or the blood on his coat maybe it was because Blenn's men already talked about his prowess. Or was it his new accessory ? The captain had around his neck a necklace with Hody's fang on it. Yes, Shaarib, the priest of the goddess was that petty.

They opened the big doors of the room and all the royalty could hear was a sardonic laughter.#

~ "Ma ma ! Look who's back with good news" !

The throne roomed quieted in response to Shaarib's abrupt entrance. All eyes in the elegant room turned to the king for his reaction.

King Neptune remained seated with a light scowl on his face as he eyed the skypiean's new accessory. Shaarib had failed to keep his promise, but the insurgents were handled and his kingdom was safer for that. The king of the Ryugu Kingdom had been thinking of his options since he received word of Hody Jones's death.

The three prince watched with straightened postures; while the two younger brothers seemed fairly pleased with today's events, Fukaboshi seemed to echo his father's concerns in his face.
"Shaarib Hassan." spoke Neptune. "Do you take my words as hollow?"
The ginger-haired giant merman's eyes studied Shaarib carefully as he rose from his throne using his trident for leverage.

"Or are you returning to admit your failure?"

"Or are you returning to admit your failure?"
# Shaarib wasn't surprised, not at all. The people from bellow were wary of most humans, you could be from the world government or the worst pirate. They wouldn't give their trust and knowing that Shaarib killed Hody would permit them to not accept his status as protector of the island. He acted nicely during this mission, he needed to, he refused to kill most of the pirates liked he was asked to do. But, if they wanted him to act like the "pirate" he was, he could. Shaarib wanted to clap but with his broken arm, he couldn't, so he just put up a finger and winged it in the wind.

- "Aht Aht Aht."


Who do they think he was ? The 4 royals were scared of Hody and with the drugs, Shaarib knew for sure no one them was going to be able to beat them. It was a war they were going to lose badly. Even If Jimbei decided to come helping. And now the giant mermaid king wanted to scare him off ?

-"Don't began old man, I did what I needed to do, most of the crew got captured. I knocked out Hody twice and my arm" said Shaarib pointing at his broken arm" wouldn't be in this state if I decided to kill him. Your boys are drug addicts and using a drug that strong in this quantity is probably going to cause their death in the next hours or so. So do not try to act all tall and mighty when my crew took hits to save your country because of a stupid rules of no kills. You may not respect me but all your soldiers do now... Shaarib Hassan, the winged-man saved your asses ! Now you can be sure that blue dude here will be king one day." Said Shaarib pointing again at Fukaboshi.

" Be sure tho that like I said, I'm here for a friendship. But. But. But If you try me, I will slice all ya throats right here right now. If I'm accused to be a warmonger, let at least be true. " Finished the winged guy with all the seriousness in the world.#

"Don't began old man"
The minister at the king's right side began fuming, the pale orange seahorse merman clutched his trident aggressively and began shouting!
"You are speaking to, His Majesty, the Patriarch of the Ryugu Kingdom, King Neptune!" He roared. "You will show respe-"

A wave of the king's arm cut the advisor short. Neptune loomed closer and closer to Shaarib, slowly whilst holding his ornate trident. His stern eyes studied Shaarib's arm then looked to his first-hand curiously.
" Be sure tho that like I said, I'm here for a friendship. But. But. But If you try me, I will slice all ya throats right here right now. If I'm accused to be a warmonger, let at least be true. " Finished the winged guy with all the seriousness in the world.#
King Neptune remained silent while Shaarib resorted to pouting and threatening his children once more. The three princes seemed completely unaffected by Shaarib's words (they hardly seemed to be paying attention to anyone but their father).

At Shaarib's threat however, the soldiers lining the walls had fallen into a defensive formation, preparing to attack the two pirates.

"Jamon- It is clear to me that you know nothing of humility. You are too stubborn to admit your failure, Shaarib Hassan." Neptune spoke with a voice that seemed to resonate from the throne room itself. "If you cannot show us your respect, we do not want your "protection.""

Neptune chided the pirate with genuine disappointment on his face. "You are not protectors, you are conquerors. You have proven this to me."

Fukaboshi mirrored his father's disappointment but with a hint of added contempt for the psycho before his father. Fukaboshi had been with his father since Shaarib had left to dispatch of The New Fishman Pirates.

It was then that Commander Blenny, after hearing everything, entered the throne room with a bow towards the royals. The fishman solider joined the two pirates, standing off closer to Troya.
He muttered to the second-in-command:
"You need to reel him in..." He left it at that as he remained quiet until spoken to by the king.

"A protector serves and respects his people, he doesn't rule over them with threats." Prince Manboshi remarked as he folded his arm together with distaste for their visitors.

The king was now well within striking distance of the skypiean, but seemed completely unfazed by his threatening remarks. He leaned down a bit to bring his own face closer to Shaarib.

"I will die for this country, will you do the same; Shaarib Hassan?" The king asked with an odd calmness in his voice while suddenly bringing the tip of his trident to Shaarib's neck, the giant merman spoke with a tone as if he were quizzing a child.

# Shaarib blood was getting hotter, he was close too exploding and making a mistake he wasn't going to assume. Failure ? When did he fail ? Did he not bring most of Hody's crew ? The pirate never liked being disrespected and Neptune thinking he was high and mighty wanted to kid a man that could kill him right on point. The nerve of that man...

Neptune chided the pirate with genuine disappointment on his face. "You are not protectors, you are conquerors. You have proven this to me."
What now ? Shaarib began scratching his head nervously. he was trying hard not to cause a scene. He was still a marine and killing the famous Neptune was going to make his move back home, impossible. For the winged-man, Neptune ws the one shamelessly hiding for his responsibilities. Maybe the Fishman never trusted Shaarib to win against the rebel. The king made a pause and his son tried to chime in. A remark that made our hero open his eyes and let out some pressure to calm him down.

"A protector serves and respects his people, he doesn't rule over them with threats." Prince Manboshi remarked as he folded his arm together with distaste for their visitors.
- "The old man can talk, he was someone in the past. People knows about him in the White Sea. May it be the last time I hear disrespect in your tone. A prince that can't defend his country and hide behind his father should not be able to speak to me." said Shaarib with seriousness and then waved his hand towards the soldiers taking his usual comic tone. "My bad ! My bad ! The two babies can't but not Blue guy, we hugged each other."

It was then that Neptune got up and to tell the truth Shaarib was impressed. He was immense already when he was sitting but when he was standing was something else. The red-head swam ? Floated ? Neptune moved towards the sword agent, his trident in his hand. Trying maybe to made him and Troya scared. Shaarib was in the same room as Garp the Hero and Sengoku, it was going to be hard to top that. But suddenly, the king decided to move.


"I will die for this country, will you do the same; Shaarib Hassan?" The king asked with an odd calmness in his voice while suddenly bringing the tip of his trident to Shaarib's neck, the giant merman spoke with a tone as if he were quizzing a child.
Gan Fall's grandson smiled with all his teeth. Finally they were talking !

~ "Daddy Neptune, do I even want it anymore ? First I was a warmonger, then you told me to try to not kill Hody's crew. You said TRY because I wanted to kill all of them and give out excuses. I tried and lost my freaking arm but how many died ? Two ? What I know is y'all spend too much time in this beautiful palace. Y'all let some wannabes get strong enough to began an insurrection, none of your mighty children tried to fight. I don't think they could've even opposed a threat. The people I saved are backing down. I could've just helped them take the country and then kill them. But NOOOOOO ! I'm standing here getting disrespected. Didn't I gave my words ? What do ya want now ? A political marriage ? There are no princess in this country so nah. A blood oath ? I spilled enough today but if ya want, why not ? If you agree, we the Shaarib's Pirates are going to do everything to protect this country. You'll be sure that if this country is destroyed that will means that Shaarib Hassan is dead. But let's tell the truth to each other. Do you know someone strong enough for that ? " finished Shaarib winking at the king. #

The princes seemed almost completely unimpacted by Shaarib's snide comments, aside from vague scowl from Prince Fukaboshi. Both ministers however were writhing in anger from the remarks made by Shaarib Hassan about the royalty.
Blenny sighed, it seemed this could still end poorly after all; Troya had not heeded his warning.

"Daddy Neptune, do I even want it anymore ? First I was a warmonger, then you told me to try to not kill Hody's crew. You said TRY because I wanted to kill all of them and give out excuses.

Neptune seemed extremely displeased at first, but it seemed to be more disappointment or disgust than anger. He seemed lost in thought, the king took a moment to find his words.

"Commander Blenny..." The king asked solemnly. "How many were lost?"

The fishman commander bowed to his king briefly and gave a slow rise before answering. He seemed to be hesitating for his new ally's sake. "At least one hundred from what I counted, Your Majesty."

The king lowered his trident from Shaarib's neck. "You've done our people a service Shaarib Hassan, but you are ignorant of the price." The king remarked.
He gestured a jab with his trident in the direction of Shaarib's arm.
"You cry for your arm, but not for those lost alongside you; nor for our misguided brothers that you slaughtered." The king's words seemed to have an effect on Blenny as well as the other sea-dwellers in the room.

"This fight goes on far longer than you can imagine, and the losses are immeasurable..." The king's talking began to trail of into a solemn train of thought.

"Shaarib. It's not our king's fault for those detractors!" Blenny exclaimed. The fishman commander seemed overwhelmed by his king's words.
"It's people, like you, from above the surface. They sail in on pirate ships and attack our families, steal our children, and threaten our home." He continued on.

The king listened to the warming words from his commander but didn't seemed convinced by them, in truth the king battled his inner demons constantly; Neptune had long wanted ban access from the outside world. His wife, Queen Otohime's, life-long wish never left his heart however and he allowed his people to suffer for it.

King Neptune once more let the room grow silent before bringing his eyes from Blenny to Shaarib. "Shaarib Hassan."
"If I were to decline your 'offer' to protect the Ryugu Kingdom..." Neptune pauses for a moment. "What then?"

The room fell quiet as they all awaited Shaarib's response.

# Shaarib just slowly shook his head, letting out a sigh. The old man wasn't seeing his side at all. Neptune was the one that asked him not to kill the pirates and Shaarib tried his best no to. If he could kill all of them, none of Blenny's would have died. Trying to spare criminals wasn't something he could ever understand. Hody's men deserved to die. Shaarib looked at the trident then at the King.

- " Who told you that ? The problem is that you never listen. Didn't I already told you that we people from the sky can hear people soul ? Every person that died, I, Shaarib, felt it. I can see how people think of me. Not everyone because I never wanted to train that ability, blue guy over there has a black color, he is strong enough. But most of y'all I can feel it. Every soldiers or pirates that died in a perimeter of at least 600 m, I felt it. I already prayed for them, they died for their country. The goddess has blessed the worthies. Why would I mourn them more ?

"Shaarib. It's not our king's fault for those detractors!" Blenny exclaimed. The fishman commander seemed overwhelmed by his king's words.
"It's people, like you, from above the surface. They sail in on pirate ships and attack our families, steal our children, and threaten our home." He continued on.
Then again, people were doing an amalgam. He wasn't from the blue sea. The first Fishman he saw was probably Lee so he never thought of their struggle. He had problems too. He knew about how the celestials dragon and noblemen were found off the exotics races. He was one, he knew how people looked at them differently. His superior even called him a bird so he could understand.

- " I'm not from the blue sea, Blenny-chan. If you want to see people like me, you need to go far up in the sky. Pirates kill everyone. They steal our children too. They want them precious wings in their room as a trophy. I was probably the only winged-man in the Marine. Maybe the first that became a Vice-Admiral. I can feel your pain, y'all suffered more than us. Y'all are way reachable than us but y'all are stronger than us. "



"Shaarib Hassan."
"If I were to decline your 'offer' to protect the Ryugu Kingdom..." Neptune pauses for a moment. "What then?"
Again he was faced with an ultimatum. He wanted an answer that wasn't going to please him.

"I sacrificed too much to back down King. I can't go back on my words. I have an objective, people trusted me enough to follow my lead. I can grasp it with my hands. The waves I'm going to create are going to shake the whole New World and for that I need your island under my protection. If you were to decline the offer, I will arrest you and the royal family. No harm would be done to any of you. Y'all will just be in house arrest for a month. Just the time for me to create that ruckus. You'll be be probably angry and hate me but you'll will be thankful, I'm going to open a path for ya to the surface. The man I'm going to kill is a scum backed by the high authorities in the government. I left a career in the Marine for that, my people left everything for that. So don't force my hand.." Shaarib lowered his head and spoke slowly" Do not make Shaarib Hassan be known as the one who killed King Neptune." #

" Who told you that ? The problem is that you never listen. Didn't I already told you that we people from the sky can hear people soul ? Every person that died, I, Shaarib, felt it. I can see how people think of me. Not everyone because I never wanted to train that ability, blue guy over there has a black color, he is strong enough. But most of y'all I can feel it. Every soldiers or pirates that died in a perimeter of at least 600 m, I felt it. I already prayed for them, they died for their country. The goddess has blessed the worthies. Why would I mourn them more ?
As Shaarib responded, the king looked wholly unconvinced. Shaarib Hassan's words seemed to be bouncing off the king without even entering his ears. Between how ruthless he acted in reports and his childish whining, Neptune saw less and less reason to attempt any sort of understand between the two.
Then again, people were doing an amalgam. He wasn't from the blue sea. The first Fishman he saw was probably Lee so he never thought of their struggle. He had problems too. He knew about how the celestials dragon and noblemen were found off the exotics races. He was one, he knew how people looked at them differently. His superior even called him a bird so he could understand.

- " I'm not from the blue sea, Blenny-chan. If you want to see people like me, you need to go far up in the sky. Pirates kill everyone. They steal our children too. They want them precious wings in their room as a trophy. I was probably the only winged-man in the Marine. Maybe the first that became a Vice-Admiral. I can feel your pain, y'all suffered more than us. Y'all are way reachable than us but y'all are stronger than us. "
Blenny took in Shaarib's word but knew fully well Shaarib was from the white sea; he simply meant non-fishmen, but deemed this an inappropriate time to correct him. He simply let the king and Shaarib continue their unpleasant discussion but Blenny was growing nervous; if violence were to break out...He dreaded the idea of having to fight against the skypiean.

"I sacrificed too much to back down King.
Neptune's eyes hardened as the words sacrifice left Shaarib's mouth. He held his tongue nonetheless since he did not know of Shaarib's travels or hardships before arriving in the Ryugu Kingdom; though King Neptune didn't have any clue what that had to do with his home.
If you were to decline the offer, I will arrest you and the royal family. No harm would be done to any of you. Y'all will just be in house arrest for a month. Just the time for me to create that ruckus.
Neptune's eyebrow rose curiously as Shaarib continued on, he was certain Shaarib would simply resort to slaughtering any residents that opposed him. The king listened on but thought of Shaarib's true intentions with Fishman Island back in the inner-workings of his mind.

You'll be be probably angry and hate me but you'll will be thankful, I'm going to open a path for ya to the surface. The man I'm going to kill is a scum backed by the high authorities in the government. I left a career in the Marine for that, my people left everything for that. So don't force my hand.."
Neptune's face shifted, his demeanor seemed to change as Shaarib spoke about 'opening a path'. The princes as well seemed to be impacted by Shaarib's words. Murmuring began amongst some of the guards and soldiers with them in the throne room, some of the whispers were positive and some negative; it seemed the idea of 'a path to the surface' was a point of interest in many minds on Fishman Island.

For once Shaarib's offer was starting to sound more than just a one-sided dictatorship to the king, Blenny let out a sigh of relief as he saw the tension slowly dissipate. He went to smile...
Shaarib lowered his head and spoke slowly" Do not make Shaarib Hassan be known as the one who killed King Neptune." #
Blenny's 'almost-smile' instantly shriveled into a tight frown of shock and outrage. 'HE WAS SO CLOSE, WHY WOULD HE SAY THAT?-'
The commander thought frantic thoughts as his eyes bulged from their head. He looked at Troya, then at Shaarib, and then Blenny slowly brought his head to see the king.

All was quiet in the room, all faces were serious. It seemed Shaarib may have pushed to far with his final threat.

The seriousness passed as quickly as it had come when King Neptune let out a jolly laugh from his belly.

"Jamon jamon jamon~!" He chortled. The king merrily wiped a forming tear from his left eye as he began to catch his breath. It was clear to Neptune that he Shaarib were not going to see eye to eye; what Shaarib lacked in respect for Neptune and his people he made up for with haughtiness.
"Well, Shaarib Hassan...It seems I haven't much options." The king chuckled.

He looked throughout the room and back to his sons to gauge their reactions; Fukaboshi nodded positively towards his father, as did Blenny.
King Neptune brought his trident to Shaarib's right shoulder and gently placed it there.

"Shaarib Hassan, as king of The Ryugu Kingdom...I deem you protector of Fishman Island." His voice was calm but heavy with authority.

BLAST FROM THE PAST!
(RP Expedition)​


Continuing from the post onwards


It had been little over a week that the marines or should I say the World Government received a report of a vessel with the pirate insignia of "Shaarib Pirates" was spotted. From the destination, it was headed it was easy to pinpoint it had made its way en route to Fishman Island.

The marines prepared a vessel to go capture the ex-Vice Admiral, amongst them was a former subordinate. Since his departure and betrayal to many within the organisation. She has risen to the rank of Rear Admiral, unable to be promoted to the same rank as her former superior officer due to his label as a traitor. Though she was unable to contest the accusation, she simply had to endure and hone her skills with a limit cap of where she can go up to.

It now had been a matter of a few days since the ship was coated and now finally made its way down to Fishman Island just mere meters away from the bubble in entering the island.

Aboard the ship, a fist was clenched ' Shaaarriibb ' thought came from a person that was none other than a blast from the past for Shaarib. She breathed heavily knowing he was a member of a special corps of the Marines. But she still had to capture the man due to his notoriety of becoming a traitor and a bane.

" I'll put you behind a cell so I can finally become a Vice-Admiral " she would say as Ayol now supported a new look than before and abandoned her sword skills to best her superior officer at his own game. She now also harbored a new type of belief in justice, falling under Excessive Justice with the motto "Play Hard, Punch Harder".

# Shaarib as he heard Neptune's words began laughing once more wholeheartedly like he did hours ago. In the span of some hours, he completely changed his views of Neptune. The King had a spine, he was someone maybe not the proud fighter he once was but certainly not the shadow of himself Shaarib thought. He needed to know more about the king. He had all the time to try to know more and more the man and his past. Anything was useful. If Shaarib could successfully form a strong trust with the people form here, it would be helpful to the Marine. Being the one that was trusted by the fishmen was a huge political boost in the organization. The winged-man didn't know what to do until Troya elbowed him in the ribs. Shaarib did a bow and then solemnly put his working arm on his on his torso and said :

- " And I Shaarib Hassan promise to protect this country at all costs"

They won and the sword agent wanted to spend the rest of the day alone, he wanted to make a report fast and get more sleep. Troya was the brain so he was probably going to stay and make some inquiries about the new Naglfar and asked for a meeting with the ministers. A new ship couldn't be made in a new day. They were probably going to spend a week or two there. Shaarib wasn't patient but he had new partners, he wanted to learn more about them. Zenon and L'Homme were hurt so maybe a little vacation wouldn't be that bad. The pirate looked around and bowed again :

- " If you may excuse me, I need to check on my children. I hope to be able to talk your highness alone in the incomings days. With my arm looking like that I might leave my body training alone for a whole week and follow you around to train my young mind. Everything you need will be processed by Troya.He's one of the smartest I know. Blenny-Chan we need to go ! " said Shaarib walking towards the door dragging the captain, he suddenly stopped and looked back " May the Prince Fuka' not forget to that he owe us a ship and a feast. More seriously :

Le don de la déesse est un mystère infini.
Pour l'atteindre, nous prenons notre envol.
Des rides se dessinent à la surface de l'eau,
L'âme errante ne connaît aucun repos.
"

Even the King needed a blessing once in a while thought Shaarib. Troya shook his head and did a eye-smile towards the king and the prince. Shaarib was a bastard to dodge the incoming talk. The gunner really hoped the king wasn't in the mood to talk politics now.#

- " And I Shaarib Hassan promise to protect this country at all costs"
It seemed all tension was shed at last, the palace itself breathed out a sigh of relief as the winged-man was knighted as Fishman Island's protector. The king towered over the two pirates but seemed far friendly than he had moments before. The two younged princes smiled and laughed to themselves as tensions rose, however Prince Fukaboshi still brooded over Shaarib Hassan's intentions, though now with much more calmness.
" If you may excuse me, I need to check on my children. I hope to be able to talk your highness alone in the incomings days. With my arm looking like that I might leave my body training alone for a whole week and follow you around to train my young mind. Everything you need will be processed by Troya.He's one of the smartest I know. Blenny-Chan we need to go ! "
Commander Blenny snapped to attention and followed Shaarib. He was more relieved than most, he knew Shaarib Hassan's might and very much enjoyed not having to be on the opposite end of his attacks. The sandy-fleshed fishman moved alongside the Skypiean, ready to help in any way he could.
"What did you say back there?" The fishman asked (referring to the prayer).

The giant looming king's gaze now fell entirely upon Troya. The throne room was silent for a moment following Shaarib's prayer and exit...

Thunk.

Neptune sighed. He looked towards a group of soldiers near the left corridor and waved a dismissal to his men. They hurried off towards the direction of the noise that rarely ever rested in Ryugu Palace.

"Well, Troya..." Spoke the king. "Your captain seems mighty unruly. If I may be forward enough to ask you: what is it you all want with our kingdom anyways?" He asked.

The king followed his question with another. "He said something about opening a path for us to the surface...Why does he seek that?"

# Shaarib looked at Blenny and winked at him. It was rare for people to ask him about his religion. Even if they tend to forget, the winged was still a priest after all. The goddess saved his life and put on this path.

~ « Ma ma, everyone has his own interpretation. It’s the first act of a poem. My father will tell you it’s about 3 friends having the sae objective with different paths and I will tell you it’s about one person looking for the goddess ultimate benediction.

This Verse is the first one. The departure of the friends towards the sky. With the ascension, some changes began and friends wage war, hence the part about the ripple on the water. And on this trip, one of them, a wanderer will have no peace, his soul never at ease.

Here, I’m talking about how this country with the help of my wings is going above the surface to create a shockwaves. A war of ideologies and when everything will be done. Me as the wanderer will continue on my eternal path to please the goddess.

When you think about it, it can be sad but it’s life. Some verses are way darker than this but it’s for another day.

My job is to be a shepherd and help people ascend to her... at any coast. I am hungry tho. Find me some to eat.» finished Shaarib with a blank stare.

Things were weird now. He had things to face. His crew got new acquisitions and it was only now that he realized he will have to arrest the whole bunch. Pirates were scum that deserved to die but looking at his children fraternizing with them made him feel a little remorse. Everything he was doing was for the greater good. What was some lives if the whole blue sea could be safer. He needed to make a report. To call Ayol, at least she would give him a honest answer. #



  • « By the way B-Chan, I’m sorry for your men. I should have killed them guys... » said Shaarib slowly walking towards his team.

[EDIT : Forgot the Troya part]

Troya never realized it because Neptune never spoke to him. But the king had a presence and you were instantly under pressure when talking to him. Shaarib's right-hand was a simple man. He wasn't as capable as the winged-ma but he was the designated mediator of the crew. The black man closed his opened eye and with a foxy grin said ;

- " Shaarib is a weird man. He cam from another society so he never respected order. The only way he can listen to someone is if that person is stronger than him. In the Marine, his squadron has a bad reputation. All the leaders of the 169th had a tragic reign but he did his job so higher ups couldn't talk. Please give him so time, you will not regret your decision. On the other point I cannot speak much but only thing I will say is : The Reverie.

The Past will come to HAUNT you!
(RP Expedition)

Ayol clenches her fist in both hands tightly though she raises her right hand as she grunts in the same sequence. ' I am gonna have you taste my fist Shhaaarib-sama '. Right behind her was another, though of unknown rank. "Ayol, you know the deal don't you?" she would say to Ayol as she responds with a nod then turning around.

Just who was this mystery person? she was none other than placed to observe Ayol. Why observe? it was simple. Many accused and presumed Ayol was an insider for a former marine vice admiral turned pirate. To those under the marines, SWORD is still a special force unheard of by many within the ranks. Ayol's everyday life has been monitored 24/7 by the world government.

Though that wasn't the end to it as Ayol was even rebuffed from a promotion, her life then turned to tragedy. She was humiliated, attacked, belittled, abused, tortured, and even interrogated over a huge presumption. Ayol would go shopping and be whipped in public with a whip and have verbal abuse thrown at her. This was just a taster of what Ayol had to suffer through.

Ayol was stripped of her rank though with a sudden change her stripping of rank was rebuked due to a higher official. Since then Ayol has been non-stop training to use all the pain she has had to suffer and use it to her advantage. Time had gone by and many things had occurred, lives had changed to a point.

Coming back to Ayol and her observer, as the observer would smirk and say "You have full authorisation in slaughtering any of these mishaps called fishmen in the name of humanity. You also have the right to kill the royal family should they not provide any answers."

Ayol smiled in response as the final thing would be said to Ayol, "I'll put in a word so you can finally get your promotion and become Vice Admiral."

Ayol and the observer would kick off the ship darting through the air in a zig-zag formation, though Ayol would be heard saying " KAMISORI! "

' Knock, knock Shaarib ' Ayol would smirk as she darted through the air under the fishman island bubble.

Kamisori
Requirements:
46 Mastery, 41 Strength and 61 Movement Speed
Description: A combination of Geppo and Soru, where the user uses Soru in a zigzag motion in midair, allowing extremely fast movements in three dimensions.

It wasn't long that Shaarib's right-hand man was tasked with speaking with the king; mere moments after Troya's answer a panicked fishman soldier pushed open the door. The blue-skinned soldier's eyes widened as he noticed he was interrupting the king's conversation.
He bowed before the royal family before announcing.

"Your majesty, a ship was spotted beneath our island while we were cleaning up the Fishman District!" He seemed frazzled a bit as he spoke. "It appeared to be a marine ship."

The king looked puzzled for a moment then looked to his guest. He began to expect the worst, this could have been some odd ploy by the government. Neptune looked to the ministers still beside his throne.
"Assemble some men for a greeting party." The king commanded to his loyal advisors.

The king's giant gaze returned to Troya. "Are these friends of yours?" The ginger-haired king asked running his free hand through his beard. "You may want to let your captain know, they're here."

# Troya couldn’t believe what he heard. Both his eyes now opened, he calmly waited for the King to give out orders. They didn’t want to cause a diplomatic incident. What was the government doing down there ? They always went trough Marijoie to get to the New World. Did they found out about the Shaarib’s Pirates location ?

"Are these friends of yours?" The ginger-haired king asked running his free hand through his beard. "You may want to let your captain know, they're here."
Troya shook his head. The plan was to stay there for two more weeks. Everything was in jeopardy, they will have to act quick. Troya did a bow and rushed towards the exit. It did not take much time before he was able to find his boss. The man was fussing over a card game. The crewmen always tricked him because he never played these games and to defend himself the captain always resorted to violence. The winged-lan was holding a frightened Genjo by the collar ready to punch him while the others were laughing.

- « Boss » tried Troya a first time, « Boss... » a second time, « BOSS ! »

- « WHAT ?! » yelled the sword agent.

- « The marine is here. »

This fours simple words made Shaarib regain his calm. He looked at the others and turned to Blenny :

- «Y’all better hide my children somewhere in that huge castle. Cyclops and me are going on a trip»

Gan Fall’s boy cracked his neck and with Troya began walking in direction of all that ruckus. They were going towards the Fishman District. Shaarib wasn’t happy, Sengoku was playing him. Ayol too, which was weird because she didn’t take his last call. He hoped the government didn’t send another Vice Admiral. In the state he was, kt was going to be hard to fight any higher up. #
