Hyokaido is a vast area filled with mostly icebergs and glaciers. The geography is filled with various waterways for ships to pass through. However due to the unnatural movement of the icebergs, ships can easily become trapped. The icebergs that trap ships themselves are normal. This seemingly conscious movement of icebergs however is caused by various Domo Penguins pushing the icebergs across the water from underneath. While most of Hyokaido is a barren ice land, deep within the area is a place apparently different from the rest of the land. This place called Lovely Land is the headquarters of the Accino Family. It is a golden castle of sorts that seems to have a tropical jungle atmosphere completely different from the rest of Hyokaido. The Accino Family bring their captured prey here and do something to them here. When the Accino Family later present the captured pirates to the Marines, the pirates are apparently smiling despite being captured.
The World Government is the largest organization in the world, ruling over the nations under it with an iron fist. Founded 800 years ago after the Void Century, they have since been the main force of authority on these tumultuous seas. Their reach is far and wide, with bases all throughout the World. They are split into three main attack forces. Marines, Cipher Pol, and the Royal Shichibukai.
CIPHER POL 5 HEAD OFFICE
Inside a concrete block room situated on the second floor of the facility, two figures held a meeting. The room was lit with only a single illuminating bulb; however, the texture of the wall, having been painted with a dark shade of navy contradicts its light. All was gloomy.
On the chair placed against the corner of the room, a man in a black suit sat. His face is quite recognizable due to its cunning scar, crawling from his right forehead down to his right cheek. He lit a cigar as he stared at the other figure.
"Do you understand the value of this mission?", he asked the man he was speaking with.
"Do you understand why I handpicked you to settle this?"
The other man lent his ears. He carefully listened to the mission orders as he sat on his chair across his superior's table. He tried to grasp the whole situation but for him, it just didn't make any sense at all. Until finally, he broke his silence.
"But Mr. Valdez, I-."
"Silence Dennis! I know that you're a valuable scientist. You're my most precious one."
"Many are capable of this assignment but among yourselves, you can infiltrate the island easily. And your expertise speaks a lot."
"The main subject in this mission is a dangerous man. And his ability is something our department has to secure."
"I understand, Mr. Valdez.", Dennis finally acknowledged. Having said that, he rose to his chair and would be goodbye to his superior.
"I will assemble my team. Until then, Mr. Valdez."
"Best of luck Doctor."
And with that, Dennis exited the meeting room before turning right where his office is located. In his office, he would only get a single holster where his special arsenals are kept. Thereafter, he would head to the laboratory to fetch numerous special seeds that he would then secure inside his pocket belt. After he gathered those, he would handpick a couple of forces to join him in his mission. They would expect him to board their vessel in 10 minutes.
10 minutes later.
"I believe everyone's here. Let's sail. To Hyokaido."
The cold winds blew without mercy as a lone crew of pirates attempt to navigate their way through the icebergs surrounding the area. They managed to lose their way after hundreds of marine ships drove them into the field of icebergs. However this was all according to plan.
Suddenly, the icebergs began moving according to the movements of the pirate ship and locked them in. The now trapped ship is encountered by Lil, Salchow, Arbell and Hockera, members of the infamous Accino Family. They all speak at once, smilling smugly at their prey.
"You lot might as well give up now! Its impossible for you to escape! All of you are going to die here!"
Meanwhile in the Accino Family's Castle in Lovely Land, Don Accino is drinking. Patiently waiting for his "present" to arrive, while admiring his large collection of pirate flags. He sat there smiling in satisfaction at the thought of making it even bigger. Chuckling to himself, he reached into the pile and proudly held of one of the flags.
Completely ignorant of the trouble that was about to come to him and his companions soon enough.
Would today be the end of the Accino Family? Only time can tell.
A lone cargo ship continued to traverse the West Blue, 3 days after Dennis and his co-agents set sail from the CP5 HQ. And as the vessel course through under the morning sun, a flock of seagulls hovered over them, signifying that an island is nigh.
Cutting through the sea, the water swashed and rippled around the bow, the port, and the starboard. Seawaters almost splash aboard.
"Land!", said one of the sailors.
"Doctor, we're nearing the port.", said one of his agents.
In an arrogant and cunning manner, Dennis responded, "Prepare to dock."
"Do tell the two agents to disguise women.", he added. The sailor quickly entered the two agents Dennis was referring to convey the order. "Aye, sir!"
Accino Family, he spoke to himself as he looked at the poster he was holding. The boss is quite interested in your power. Well, it's Mr. Valdez after all.
Dennis and his company are getting near the port of Hyokaido. Will their entrance be uninterrupted? Or their means and ways to get there would be quite a trouble?
Shifting to the poster of the youngest child of the Don he thought. This one caught my interest. Fighting using plants. Heh! Let's see how far it shall take you. Poor child. Dragged by his own father to the depths of death.
As luck would have it, Don Accino didnt have to wait much longer. Lil, Salchow, Arbell and Hockera returned to Lovely Land, the island that despite the freezing climate of Hyokaido, remained a tropical paradise.
Whether or not that was due to Don's Devil Fruit ability was anyone's guess. The four entered the castle with the unknown pirate crew in tow, a flag held tightly in Salchow's clutches and he led them with a proud smile. The ones resisted were killed off, however these ones that surrendered were brought in with intentions of trading them to the Marines. The Accino Family was a group of bounty hunters afterall. The four stood before the Don with their prize. Don jumped to his feet in excitement as he walked up to them and took the flag in hand, his extra enthusiasm most likely due to alcohol.
"Another day, another flag to add to my collection! As usual good work you guys!"
Accino stood for a while admiring the flag before going back to his sofa and adding it to the pile. Salchow stepped forward and gestured towards their captured prey, "It was really a piece of cake boss, these pirates lacked experience really. We took then down in no time, isn't that right my love?"
Arbell embraced Salchow lovingly, kissing him on the cheek multiple times. Lil screwed up her face in disgust. "Indeed my dear, these pirates were no match for our love!"
Lil gagged loudly. Salchow gave the young girl a death stare while she sneered at him in return. Hockera on the other hand, smiled in amusement. "HOH KE KE KE KE!! Lil contributed the most this time, boss. We captured them quickly all thanks to her plants ke!"
Don cast his gaze to Lil with an impressed expression. "Is that so? I'm proud of you my daughter! I'm impressed with you all! As a matter of fact we should all celebrate! Im in an extremely good mood!" But the party would have to wait. Don's second son Brindo had contacted him on a Den Den Muchi. He answered the call. "What is it Brindo?"
"There's a cargo ship headed straight for Hyokaido. And from the looks of it, it's a World Government vessel. What do we do?" Don's smile faded and the entire mood of room shifted. He remained silent for a few seconds as the Accino Family held their breaths waiting for his decision. Accino's smile returned as he got to his feet. "We see what they want of course. Have the Domo Penguins cut off all exits. Get a ship ready, we're going out to meet our guests!"
As the vessel enters Hyokaido, if the crew members are observant enough, they would notice the icebergs slowly surround their ship.
As well as see a ship making its way to their location hosting a familiar flag.
The ship quickly disembarked from lovely island as the Accino Family's plan set in motion. The Domo Penguins went unnoticed as the icebergs closed off all exits to Hyokaido, and pretty soon the crews of the two vessels confronted each other.
Accino noticed the three women waving at their ship and smirked.
These poor women must have traveled the wrong way.
"Right here Salchow!" He noded his head in reply and carried out his orders. The ship came to a stop, positioned parralel to the vessel of the outsiders. From here Don Accino would make his way to the rail of the ship and begin conversing with the women with a friendly smile.
"Welcome my friends, what bring you to this part of the ocean? Are you lost? From the looks of you, you dont seem to be highly experienced with sailing."
Don paused, waiting for their reply. They would noticed the other memebers of the Accino family gather near their leaders side, with his daughter Lil standing right next to her father.
The agents were nearing the port of Hyokaido in a mission to secure something valuable aboard the vessel of herbs merchant. As people who specialize in disguise and cover, the three male agents came up in posing as three beautiful maidens.
As they approached the target location, they locked their targets, both parties waved hello among others. But surprisingly, the Don himself was the first one to bid the deed.
Kurama responded, flirtatious, his voice is of an 18-year old sweet female student, high-pitched, "Hiiii! , yeah, it seems we're lost."
Karasu interjected, "And we are not only lost. We are pretty hungry, too, aii."
Hotohori bumped the two using his shoulders so he would emerge at the center, "And I am thirsty, I need to drink some lemonade."
The three agents are smiling, their eyes glittering, faces sparkling as the sun does to the surface of the sea. No man should reject such pretty women. No one.
The three women confirmed that they were lost at sea were in need of food and water. He found it difficult to resist their feminine charm, especially while intoxicated. The Don smiled at the strange women.
"That should all be fine, you caught us in right time! We were just about to celebrate, you can join us if you wish."
With that he turned to the others. "We'll let them get something to eat and drink, then send them on their way. In the meantime I'm going to continue admiring my prize." Don Accino made his way to his quarters as the others watched.
They all wore an expression of worry. However they would not dare try to upset their leader, for they knew what would come with his anger. The ship began its journey back to their base, Salchow kept a close eye on their guests while the others focused on other things. If the women were paying attention they would see Salchow glaring at them with suspicion.
Still aboard the merchant ship, the three men in disguise have finally gotten themselves within the targets. Posing as women, their charm and dazzling appearance had the Bounty Hunters fell to their traps. At least, that's what they deemed at the moment. Voicing out their respective alibis as to how they inadvertently entered their territorial waters and as to what they need, for the time being, the Accino family offered them passage to the island of Hyokaido. Not only that, they would also offer them some food and drinks as they wish.
"Thank youuuuu! ", said Karasu, wearing that 17-year-old high school lady who loves to flirt.
Meanwhile, both Dennis and Hotohori are currently exchanging stares with Salchow. And not moving even an inch, the two agents slid both their eyes sideways so that, it would meet their glances midway. They have similar thoughts in mind.
We are getting suspected by that man with the loud eyeshadow. Dennis said to himself but also directed at Hotohori.
I know right!, Hotohori responded but also just inside his head.
We need to stay cool and let that bitch Karasu do all the flirting. I can't stand this.
But this was your idea fucking twirk.
What did you-?!
Just kidding doc! Ayieee!
As they discussed magically inside their heads, the helmsman manned the wheel and followed the Accinos. And at last, if there would be no further hindrances along the way, we would find the merchant ship docking on the island.
But before they did, the three agents shared glances once more. An order from the doctor was laid on the floor - silently.
I need this done smoothly. Go for the perfect opportunity.
Don Accino had offered to give the trio some food and drink before going on their way. Now both vessels headed in the direction of Lovely Island, the base of operations for the Accino Family. Salchow had spent most of the return trip having a staredown with the strangers, unable to shake the feeling that something was off about them. However none of that mattered now as the ships had finally docked in port.
Don led the way as the bounty hunters disembarked the vessel. "Now where were we? Ah yes the celebration! We need to prepare more food and beverages for our guests." Accino said addressing them all.
"Yes, about that Don, do you really think it was a good idea to bring them all the way to the base? There's something about those three. I can just feel it." Salchow replied, daring to question this move. But the bounty hunter brushed him off. "We have no need to worry, they seem like complete airheads I cant imagine them causing any harm."
Salchow while annoyed, said nothing else and instead turned to Arbell, who kissed him as form of comforting him. Lil rolled her eyes and clentched her teddy bear tighter.
Now on the shore, the Accino waited patiently for the women to leave their vessel in order to lead them inside. "Well? Hurry up! We dont have all day, there's food to be ate and drink to be drunk! HAHAHA!!"
It turned out that the disguise was working well for the three as the family took the bait and invited them for lunch and drinks. The trio would then follow the Accino's ships and on the shore, the Don himself would delightedly offer it once more.
The agents jumped from the deck of the ship like young women. Their forearms held upwards or across their upper arms. You would not witness a single trace of masculinity in their landings.
"Thank you for your hospitality.", Dennis said to the Don.
The agents are trying their best not to have eye contact with the suspicious Salchow and so, Karasu had to do something.
"Oh where are our manners.", Karasu said.
"My name is Karen by the way.", he continued. Then he turned to Dennis, "and this is our pharmacist, Denise."
Dennis would smile as he was introduced to her female name version.
"And this one is Hottie, isn't she?"
"What is yours? Hihi!"
"And hey, the guy right there doesn't seem to want us here. I think we should just go.", Hotohori aka Hottie said before crying as he ran away.
The CP5 did what they should in order to lure Salchow away from suspicion; however, it is brief. They need to do the job as soon as they get the opportunity or they would be buried alive in the territory of their targets.
The women jumped from their ship and landed infront of the Accino Family. After thanking the Don for his hospitality the three introduced themselves as Karen, Denise and Hottie.
"Haha nice to meet you ladies! I'm Don Accino! And these a my children, Lil, Arbell, Brindo and Campacino." Accino said, his good mood still boosted by the alcohol.
"And the other two are Hockera and Salchow, Arbell's husband."
Salchow had took notice of them trying to avoid eye contact with him and frowned to himself. However as Hottie became distressed from Salchow's suspicion of them, the Don began to get irritated. With that came a slight rise in temperature due to the ability of the Atsu Atsu No Mi. The Accino family stepped away from their leader in fear, realizing what was about to happen.
"Salchow, I would appreciate it if you stopped making our guests uncomfortable before you get me angry." The Don said in a serious tone.
Salchow raised his hands in surrender and laughed nervously. "Don't worry boss! Won't happen again, let's get this party started shall we?"
Accino calmed down and his smile returned. He gestured the women to enter his base. "Follow me friends! I'll personally escort you to the main area. While the rest of you get everything ready."
With a grand "YES SIR!" they set off to get things organized, while Accino led his guests into his base towards his quarters.
Finally setting foot on Hyokaido, the 3 agents would find the first success. But would they continue to succeed? Time will tell. For now, they need to keep faking it and get Don's approval, despite the suspicion they draw toward one of his men, Salchow.
"It's our pleasure to meet Don Alcino!", Karasu keeps playing with his feminine act.
"Nice to meet you, too Lil, Arbell, Brindo, and Campacino!", blended and in chorus, they all greeted the children.
"And to you, too, Sir Hockera and Salchow!", they continued.
And when Salchow keeps on suspecting them, which they intended to do to divide the faction, the Don himself finally took a step in. Dennis and Karasu would stare back at Salchow, grinning for they again found a second victory.
Fool!, they both said inside their heads.
"Oh! I am really sorry if you thought like that Sir Salchow", Hottie said directed at him. "Perhaps, it's our unusual demeanor as sales ladies that made us look like scums. But we're not! Ahihihi. We're just kinda tired after the long journey."
"Karasu or should we say, Karen, being the most flirtatious of them all gathered Don's left arm, wrapping them against his fake boobs. "I like men who have tight and bulky arms."
Dennis or Denise couldn't take what Karasu has been doing all this time. It's either his enjoying it or his true colors are about to be revealed. He thought. What is wrong with this man. Can't even look at him.
The rest of the Accino Family left, leaving the Don with the three women. Karen attempted to flirt with him, causing Accino smile in reply. Afterwards, he would lead them into his presumedly humble abode.
They entered the golden castle and Accino led them to his quarters where he lazily drops into his couch and reaches for another bottle of alcohol.
"Pull up chairs and take a seat while the others prepare. There's even extra alcohol if you ladies drink." Accino offered as his eyes caught sight of his flag collection.
It admired it for a few seconds more before directing his attention back to the women.
"I can see you three enjoy mocking my Salchow. I dont appreciate the members of my family being mocked." He said, still keeping calm frame and holding his smile.
"I'm extending my hospitality to you three of coursey. But afterwards I suggest you leave quickly. If you women have any ulterior motives you better not even try it, that's only if you want to leave this island alive." He paused letting his words hang in the air as he took another sip.
"After all, the Accino Family are bounty hunters. And unlike pirates, we have no reason to keep you three alive if you step out of line."
The three impostors are finally alone with the Don himself. Afterward, they would enter the castle. Gold and loud. The Don would eventually lead them all to his den. Now sitting like a lazy baboon, the Don would offer them a drink.
Karen/Karasu would be the first to grab one. A true flirt that she is. However, as she began to drink, the Don would call out their mockery over Salchow. Caught off guard, the beer that was in the process of going down from his tongue and into his throat would suddenly burst out, spitting them all onto the center table. "Gwaah!!!"
And the tone of her gawking would apparently be true to his true identity, a masculine man. If the Don would notice, it's bad luck.
"We are truly sorry for that, it was never our intention.", Dennis/Denise followed.
"That's scary Don Accino. Ahihi. We didn't go here for that. Can I go outside? I need to pee.", Hotohori/Hottie asked him.
Provided the Don gestured the way out, Hottie would quickly rise on her seat. As he would go, he would expect things to be running as usual. But if on any occasion he came across a member of the family, a stealth assassination would be in force.
Meanwhile, inside the room, Karasu was still trying to recover from the inadvertent gagging. Dennis on the other hand was having eye-to-eye contact with the Don. It's as if they were sizing each other.
"I also need to go to the washroom", Karasu said with a tone similar to someone who just threw up.
Would the two agents who went outside encounter members of the family? Or everything would go as smoothly as planned.
After all, they only need the head of the Don.
At this time, Dennis could no longer hold it. He was damn tired of faking it. He was ready to assault. Using his right hand that had been resting inside his right pants pocket, he would draw a single seed before subtly taking his hand off it. Then, as he stared at the Don, he quickly flicked the said seed 90 degrees from where he sat. This means, it would hit the ceiling, and swiftly, upon contact, it would secret a very foul odor which would affect the senses of someone other than the user.
Green Star Rafflesia: The user throws a Pop Green at his enemy, not aiming for them specifically but a place near them. The pop green reveals a rather large Rafflesia flower. The flower then excretes a foul-smelling odor, disabling the enemy's senses with its stench.
- Unranked, Minor stun: affected reacts slower slightly. lasts for 2 turns. Requires at least 31 mastery
If successful, Don Accino would be stunned and Denise would use this opportunity to strike using one of his Botanical Arsenals.
Karasu is the scientist of the crew. He specializes in explosives.
The one called Karen choked after the Don spoke, causing him to raise his eyebrow. Not becuase she choked, but because she strangely sounded like a man while doing so. Don Accino chuckled to himself as a he took another drink, making eye contact with Denise.
The women apologized for their rudeness, the Don nodded his nonchalantly before Hottie asked to go to the restroom
"That way."Accino replied, waving her outside before Karen followed suit.
It was Denise and Accino alone now. The atmosphere was intense as they glared at each other for a while. Not noticing what Denise was up to, Accino broke the silence.
"Salchow was right not to trust you guys. The seas really are a dangerous place." Accino said as the temperature in the room began to rise.
"I think its time to have some fun." However the Don would be soon caught off guard by one of the foulest smells he had ever smelled in his life.
Meanwhile on the outside of the room Salchow and Hockera make their way to their way to Don Accino quarters, where they would soon bump into Karen and Hottie.
Hotohori (Hottie) and Karasu (Karen) got out of Don's room and now approaching the hallway. Along the hall, they would come across two of Accino's sons, Hockera and Salchow, the latter being the one who suspected them the most. The two would speak as if the disguise has been finally called off. More masculine tone.
Karasu: "Look who we have here."
Hotohori: "The ever-suspicious Salchow."
As they spoke, the two would finally remove their disguise make-ups by rubbing their faces before taking off their respective bras and throwing them at the two brothers. Hoping that they managed to distract their visions, the two agents would launch themselves at the enemies, both attacking in a synchronized manner. Karasu went for Salchow and Hotohori went for Hockera. The former pulled his left arm and rolled all his fingers into a fist but left the index finger fully extended toward the target. While the latter would use his right index finger instead. As they launched their arms across the air, they would attempt to penetrate their index fingers into the chests of their targets like a bullet fired from a pistol. They would have to do it as quickly and as stealthily as possible.

Meanwhile, inside the room, Dennis threw a pop-green seed on the ceiling and it eventually grew like a large Rafflesia flower. The flower then excreted a foul-smelling odor across the room. Whilst Dennis is immune to this, Accino would start feeling the effect of its odor, affecting his senses.
However, as this happened, the temperature inside suddenly changed. But the doctor knew of this beforehand having been part of the intelligence. "I see.", he remarked, speaking in a cunning tone. "Your ability is to increase the temperature of your body that it allows you to channel it in the immediate environment. But I have planned for this. My plants are capable of withstanding heat and in fact, they will only neutralize the temperature in this room. That's basic science, Don."
Suddenly, Dennis threw another Pop Green on the ground that when the Don decided to move across, he would be launched up into the air. At the same time, he also threw another seed that would immediately transform into a large Venus Flytrap which would attack his opponent in no time. As the mouth of the plant tried to devour Accino, the vines it had would move toward him to try to lock him down.
