Rainbow Romeo (虹ロミオ Niji Romio), born as Cameron L. Romeo (キャメロンエルロミオ Kyameron Eru Romio) is one of the main protoganists of Grandline: The Role Play Series. He is the "second mate" of the Red Wing Pirates, and he consumed the Guro Guro no Mi, making him a Glowing Human.
Physical DescriptionRomeo is a teenage boy with straight dark violet hair. The bangs of his hair are particularly prominent, covering part of his forehead, with some smaller strands jutting outwards from the top of his head. He has large black eyes witha slime frame although he is quite muscular for his age.
He wears a long, dark, sleeveless open jacket with lighter-colored edges, revealing part of his muscular chest and held closed around his waist by a light sash, tied by a knot on his left hip. His legs are covered by loose, light-colored pants reaching down below his knees, paired with low, dark laced boots. Around his neck is a light scarf adorned by a wavy motif, while his forearms are wrapped in bandages.
Personality and Relationships
Romeo is an outlandish and outgoing individual who thrives on adrenaline in everyday life, living for the thrill. His adventurous spirit grows with every passing second, and he allows his curiousity to define his path in life. Despite his life of piracy, Romeo is far from a prototypical criminal. Romeo is a courageous hero who fights for what he feels is right, which normally involves fighting for his mates. Romeo is defined by his never give up attitude, no matter the obstical Romeo is always the first one to try again after failure.
Despite his unmatched courage, Romeo is still just an adolecent boy and can come off to most as very arrogant and annoying. He has allowed his power and strength go to his head and calims more often then not that he is stronger then whoever he isfighting. He also makes several rediculous claims at times such as that he is "immortal". He is also infamous for messing up most of the people's names he meets.
Romeo's allegiance begins and ends with his crew, who he views as his family. Often seeing Clive as a father figure with Romeo and the others as his children, Romeo will go to the ends of the earth to protect his family. Romeo does not take his enemies lightly, often feeling very hateful towards them including Julian when the two were enemies. Romeo would become enraged whenever he would face Julian, feeling betrayed by the latter.
Romeo was born to First Lady Ariel of the World Government and her forbidden love, Pirate Lord; Cameron L. Darlton. They already had a daughter named Carla but Romeo;s birth led to the discovery of their forbidden love. Ariel was to be exiled while her children and lover were set to be excecuted. Darlton successfuly sent them to the east blue before their deaths. Romeo was found by a young couple who decided to raise him as their own. His parents decided that when he grew older they would give top education so that he could be very smart. At age six he started learning things in the upper grades but never truly had an interest. By the time he graduated the elementary levels and entered private school he was already one of the smartest people in his class. He eventually dropped out of school to enter a combat camp for youth hosted by the Marines.
At the combat camp he became an elite fighter and eventually earned his way to the finals of the World Martial Arts tournament and winning gold. He befriended a boy named Julian who was also a great fighter but always was consumed by curiousity to discover his own path. Seeing himself in Julian, it wasn't long before the two became the best of friends.
One night Romeo went outside and took a tour aroundhis hometown until he fell into a random trapdoor. He awoke to a battle of two gangs fighting over a box which resulted in him getting mixed up in the frey, but he was able to resist until he was blindsided. Knocked unconscious, Romeo was captured and hung from the sealing using chains on his hands. They figured he was also after the box which housed a Devil Fruit that would grant its consumer incredible power.
The battle continued and attention was drawn away from Romeo, who escaped his restraints and took the two gangs of Pirates by surpirse and stole the box. He broke it open and consumed the Fruit so he could use its power safely escape. The gangs stopped and roared in outrage as they watched Cameron L. Romeo gain power to become a "Glowing Human".
Skills and Abilities
Romeo is known for his ungraceful, uncanny and physical style in fighting. He is a great fighter who mostly uses roundhouse kicks, sweep kicks, punches, knees and down right blowout elbows. He doesn't need the physicality when fighting because adding the power given to him when he ate the Devil allows him to create huge purple fists to knock out the opponents. Romeo is unknown for his unwavering will that goes hand in hand with his endless durability. He has taken the worst of hits and still is able to fight on. This is shown multiple times in his battles against Todoh when he takes mutiple cuts and burns and especially against Black Steel Gajeel after numerous merciless attacks from his Iron punches and kicks. Romeo's courage can even make him seem intolerable to pain, shown when he broke his own hand to destroy Julian's seastone knuckles.Although Romeo is small he is still incredibly strong, able to shatter building walls with his attacks and knock out grown men with a punch. He is also incredibly fast and agile, often imlimenting many flips and spins with his fighting style.
Main Article: Guro Guro no Mi
Romeo consumed the Goru Goru no Mi, a Paramecia type Devil Fruit that allows him to produce a number of diffrent "Glows". These Glows vary all across the color spectrum and each individual glow has a different ability depending on the color. The fighting style of this fruit involves Romeo using the right color for the right situation in battle, able to mimic and manipulate the properties of any Glow.
Romeo's first and most used Glow is the Purple one which can strech and expand to create different shapes. Romeo often uses it to grab things out of his normal range or he'll expand it into a gigantic fist to clobber his enemies. Many of his other glows seem to replicate elements, for example his red and blue glows replicate the attributes of fire and ice respectively.
Iron Soul Arc
Romeo's adventure begins with his foster parents grounding him for not only dropping out of private school, but using the refunded money to fund his way into PMCA (Port Town's Marine Combat Academy). During the night he runs away from home, leaving only a letter to his parents behind. He goes to the home of his best friend Julian and he decides he will stay with him. The following morning the two discover that Romeo has been expelled since his parents took back the payments. Like a true friend, Julian quits the academy to support Romeo.The two decide that instead of becoming Marine's they will live a life of piracy to get back at the world of "structure" that has put them in this desperate position. They become petty theives and mischeif makes around port town. After weeks Romeo and Julian feel underachieved and decide to sneak in the Marine base and cause some chaos as revenge for their expulsion from the PMCA.
They successfully infiltrate the base and remain unnoticed until Romeo's clumsiness gets them caught. To protect them from being arrested, Romeo uses his Devil Fruit powers to defeat the Marine's. His Devil Fruit is the Goro Goro no Mi which allows him to produce a purple glow that he can shape and expand to aid him battle, usually creating giant fists to fight. They decide not to abandon their quest and they journey further into the base and are eventually caught by the acting captain; Chaser. Seeing as this as a perfect chance to show off, Romeo challenges Chaser but realises this is a mistake when his powers are nullfiied by Chaser's Sea Stone Staff. Julian disarms Chaser breifly allowing Romeo an opening to knock him away from the due, they then escape the base with Chaser's staff in hand. They don't get far, Chaser catches up and would have arrested the duo if not for a mysterious red haired man intervening. He causes an explosion which seperates Romeo and Julian. Romeo finds himself across town with the man who introduces himself as the Infamous Pirate Lord; Red Hair Clive. Romeo questions Clive's actions and he responds telling him he has been watching Romeo for a while and he has begun to strafe from a decent path. In order to help Romeo Clive proposes that Romeo join Clive's pirate crew, that way Romeo could keep and majorly expand his adventurous lifestyle but in much more heroic way.
Clive explains that he is in the East Blue because he lost contact with his only crewmate, a young man named Squall. Squall was sent to the East Blue to invesigate and if need be to supress the actions of the Iron Soul Pirates. But Squall dissappeared weeks ago and Clive asks Romeo to help find him. Romeo agrees and sets off without a plan. Romeo is eventually cut off by a man who calls himself "Todoh the Blaze". He threatens Romeo by telling him that now that he's in league with Clive he will make enemies. Unafriad, Romeo prepares to defend himself against the Samurai mercenary. Todoh explains that knows the whereabouts of Clive's partener; Squall and is demanding a randsome on the part of the Iron Soul Pirates whove hired him. Romeo refuses to even relay the message to Clive, so Todoh tasks Romeo to get the money himself. Romeo refuses again, forcing Todoh to attack him. Todoh displays his mastery of swordsmanship when his blade attacks use fire to overwhelm Romeo and defeat him. Instead of killing him, Todoh reminds Romeo of his tasks and gives him twenty four hours to complete it. Romeo passes out after hearing the news and awakes to a young woman standing over him.
The girl introduces herself as Lyndis Harper and demands any information Romeo has on her lost friend Squall. Confused, Romeo explains that he is also looking for Squall as his captain has ordered him. He explains the entire situation to Lyndis, and she decides to help him find Squall by first defeating Todoh to find out what he knows. Leading Todoh out with a false bag on money left at the doorstep of an abandoned home, Cameron waits for him to arrive. The trick works when Todoh confronts Romeo only to find out the bag is filled with paper. Todoh becomes annoyed and decides that he'll send Romeo's head to his Captain as a final warning. Lyndis strikes and surprises Todoh but even she is repelled by Todoh. Using Lyndis' distraction to think of a plan, but he fails on everything he tries. Todoh claims Romeo is a one trick pony and his Devil Fruit powers are weak, angering Romeo. Romeo's anger brings out a new "Blue" glow that allows him to freeze anything he touches. Romeo freezes the ground, countering Todoh's ability to create fire by sparking his blade on the ground. This leaves Todoh open to a brutal finisher from Romeo. Lyndis ties up Todoh and the duo returns to Clive with Todoh as their prisoner. Todoh tells the group that Squall is being held on a strip of land known as "Slave Island" ((named for the slaves of the Old King that are buried there). But during the conversation, Todoh notices that a fleet of Iron Soul Pirates approaches the groups ship. Discovering Todoh's defeat, the Iron Soul immediately headed out to take out Clive and his comrades once and for all.The Iron Soul Pirates fleet immediately unleashes a barrage of cannon fire which Clive is able to suppress using his Devil Fruit. His devil fruit is power of being able to crush objects at will causes the cannon balls to detonate but the ship is caught in the blast, injuring Clive. Romeo is able to get Lyndis and Clive safely away from the sinking ship while Todoh is captured. Using a safety boat, the trio are able to make it to Slave Island. Lyndis and Romeo hide Clive in the forest, allowing him to recover while the duo decides to sneak into the Pirate stronghold. They find that Squall is trapped in a cage of Mirrors and his Halo ring is in the hands of The Iron Soul's first mate Sun Jury and Muscisian Gan Bosque. The deal for the ring begins as White Wing Pirate Diyan R Keis arrives on the Island. Keis double crosses the Iron Soul Pirates and injures Gan Bosque and takes the ring. Several white wing pirates reveal themselves and a brawl insues. Romeo reveals himself and takes the ring by surprise. In the confusion, Lyndis destroys Squall's glass cage and finally reunites with him. This is shortlived as the halo is stolen by a mysterious man who runs to the top floor of the stronghold, causing Keis to attack Lyndis and take Squall hostage. She demands the recovery of the ring, and Clive arrieves to confront her. This allows Romeo and Lyndis pursue the theif and they find the mysterious man is actually non other then Black Steel Gajeel. Gajeel is the captain of the Iron Soul Pirates and decides that he'll use this chance to destroy Clive and Keis to prove his own strength, putting his priorities about the money to the side.
Romeo and Lyndis attack Gajeel but their attacks do absolutely nothing to him. Even Romeo's glow enforced punches are nullified by Gajeel's own devil fruit; the Tetsu Tetsu no Mi (which allows Gajeel to transform his body into Iron). Gajeel covers his body in Iron scales which nullify all of Romeo's attacks. Bored with the fight, Gajeel finishes off Romeo and Lyndis by knocking them both out. Gajeel carries the two beaten warriors back to Clive and Keis while demanding they fight him. He plans to defeat Squall, Clive and Keis to prove his strength and only at there full power, so Gajeel returns the Halo to Squall. Squall is fatigued from starvation and his inital injuries at the hands of Gajeel and his pirates. This renders him defenceless as Gajeel brutalises him to defeat. Before he finishes Squall off, Clive uses his devil fruit technique to not crush, but seperate Keis' body into several small versions of herself, rendering her harmless. Gajeel's attention is now turned to an injured Clive who he hopes to finish off and finnaly achieve his goal of proving his worth as an upcoming pirate Lord, but Romeo rises to face him once again. Seeing Romeo's challenge as a joke, Gajeel humors him and the two fight. Gajeel quickly beats Romeo senseless and tosses him into the dirt, taunting him about the strength of their pirate crew. Enraged, Romeo calls upon the power of a rainbow of glows which catch Gajeel off guard, giving Romeo enough of an opening to defeat Gajeel. Romeo tackles Gajeel with the power of several glows, sending the Black Steel flying into the ocean.
The battle comes to a seisfire after Gajeel's defeat, the Iron Soul Pirates retreat and a strange white haired man arrives on the battlefield. He introduces himself as Mel D. Tsubasa, Captain of the White Wing Pirates. He has a past and a rivalry with Clive and explains that this will not be the last time these two crews cross paths, he then leaves with Keis. The group decides to leave by taking an Iron Soul Pirate ship back to Port Town. Clive asks Lyndis if she wishes to join the pirate crew and she agrees. This leads to Romeo asking wha t the name of the crew is and Clive responds by telling him their name is "The Red Wing Pirates".
Undead Bounty Arc
Celebrating the Red Wing Pirate victory, Clive drinks to the point of drunkenness, in which he commands the trio of Lyndis, Romeo and Squall to hunt a fitting bounty which the crew would use to buy a new ship. Squall leads the team to Clive's old contact named Kurono Azolf where they give him the mysterious message "The Hunt is on". Azolf recognizes this as Clive's message to hunt a bounty they hunted long ago but failed. Azolf acknowledges the trio as Clive's allies and they all set off to an Island known as Thriller Bark. While sailing to the Island, the crew learns more about Azolf. He was an ex marine turned bounty hunter who was freed from imprisonment by Clive so the Red Hair pirate could use Azolf's skills to hunt "Akuma the Undead Samurai". The Hunt for Akuma was thwarted by the marines so Azolf and Clive were separated.
The crew nears the Island just as a giant undead sea serpent attacks the ship, breaking holes in it causing the ship to sink. Lyndis, Romeo and Squall fight off the serpent while Azolf hangs back and watches. When the serpent finally retreats the crew is faced with the challenge of getting on the Island which is guarded by a gigantic lip shaped gate. Azolf decides to show off his Devil Fruit abilities which he uses to turn the remains of the sinking ship into a bomb. Doing so impulsively, the trio is stunned and nearly caught in the explosion. Squall uses his abilities to carry Romeo and Lyndis to safety. Separated from Azolf, the crew wanders aimlessly until they are confronted by a horde of bloodthirsty zombies. The appearance of the zombies put Lyndis into a state of shock, they induce visions of a past she cant understand. These visions are of her in her younger years arriving on the island and being instantly tormented by the monsters and zombies. Romeo and Squall forcibly move her throughout island and into hiding.
While Squall tries to snap Lyndis out of it, Romeo notices the group is being followed by a ghost. He tries to attack it but phases through and falls into a tree, the ghost responds saying his name is "Ten" and he means no harm. Squall explains why they're on the Island and by uttering Akuma's name he scares Ten off. The three chase Ten until they run into a gigantic monster that stops them in there tracks. The crew is once again surrounded by zombies but Ten reappears to help them, describing the giant beast as the "Gatekeeper". The gatekeeper was awakened when Azolf destroyed the gate and now searches the culprits. Romeo tries to fend it off while the others find a way out, but he is no match for the gargantuan monster. The beast attacks but Lyndis is too scared to move, until Ten possess her body that is. Ten controls her body and uses her sword to strike down the beast with a show of incredible skill. Impressed and shocked, Squall & Romeo demands the release of Lyndis' body as well as an explanation. The three run off to a safe space and Ten immediately releases Lyndis. He continues to explain that his true identity is of the ghost of Samurai "Tenshi" of the Swan.
He only reveals that he was betrayed in the past, resulting in his death and arrival on Thriller Bark. He then explains that all the beings on Thriller Bark are tainted and lost souls controlled by Akuma, they must be put to rest which can only be done by defeating Akuma. He then explains that the beings of Thriller Bark feed off any negative energy given off by humans, including the fear that Lyndis has for all the undead. Tenshi then decides to show them a section of the island known as the "River of Zen", hoping to cure Lyndis. The River of Zen is an area of the Island where the goodness of all the souls manifests themselves as a pool of water. By bathing in the waters, hopefully the pirates would be driven by the goodness and courage of their hearts rather then their fear and darkness. The River of Zen does little more then give Romeo a quick soak, which he enjoys. Meanwhile the river cures Lyndis of her shock like state. Romeo and the others are interrupted by Azolf, who appears wondering what the crew is doing wasting there time. Angered, Squall questions what Azolf was thinking by separating the group. Azolf responds by saying he was simply opening a way to get onto the Island. Tenshi senses something wrong with Azolf's energies and questions his intentions. Azolf see's Tenshi as a threat and tries to destroy him by blowing up the river, which causes a massive explosion. The structure and Tenshi survive the explosion and before anyone can retaliate, Marines randomly appear on the scene.Taking Romeo, Lyndis and Squall by surprise, the Marines were somehow lead to the crew and now plan on arresting them. To top it off the Marines are lead by Julian, Romeo's best friend! Romeo is enraged when he learn that Julian has chosen to become a Marine after their pact. Romeo prepares to fight him but Squall recognizes that the mass of marines are too much for the group and he leads them to retreat. Romeo, Lyndis and Squall have clearly been betrayed by Azolf who has led a band of Marines right too them. Tenshi leads the group to Akuma's home, the "Mass Mansion" which lays dormant center the entire island. Ready to finish the Hunt once and for all, the crew storms the mansion which features floor by floor threats that the group fights through until they reach the bottom floor. Akuma lies in wait for the group and once they finally arrive his blood red eyes ignite, signaling that he has awoken. The bottom floor Terra-forms into what Tenshi describes as "Hell", as it embodies the evil of the souls trapped on Thriller Bark. Lyndis is sent back into her state of shock and while Squall protects her, Tenshi and Romeo team up to face Akuma. Tenshi enters Romeo's body without controlling his mind so the two can fight as one against Akuma.
With Tenshi constantly feeding Romeo knowledge, Romeo is able to dodge or counter Akuma's swordsmanship skills. Despite Tenshi's help, Romeo is unable to land more then a couple of blows to Akuma's torso which seem to have no effect. Romeo thinks it must be the armor Akuma is wearing and decides that he'll have to break through it. Against Tenshi's judgement, Romeo attacks head on and is pierced through the shoulder by Akuma's blade. Akuma then siphons Tenshi's spirit from within Tenshi and even tries to absorb Romeo's soul. Tenshi separates the two fighters so this is prevented but Tenshi disappears. While inside Akuma Tenshi holds the samurai immobile, allowing Romeo to punch off his head. Despite Romeo's best analysis of the situation it turns out that the suit of armor has been empty this entire time and Akuma can move without his head or a physical body. The two begin to square off again until Azolf and the Marines unexpectedly arrive. Annoyed and angered, Romeo attacks the marines despite all his injuries sustained by Akuma. Romeo is easily overwhelmed and just Azolf prepares to finish him off, Romeo is saved by Akuma who takes the full front of Azolf's attack. This results in most of Akuma's armor being destroyed but also leaves an opening for Lyndis to wake up and strike Azolf. Azolf is grievously injured and retreats after ordering the marines to "Buster Call" the island.
Squall recognizes the term, a Buster Call will order a fleet of Marine ships to blast the island into oblivion. Although Akuma has not spoken to this point, Romeo asks why he saved him out of pure confusion. Tenshi free's himself from Akuma's body and decides that he will tell the Red Wing Pirates the complete truth about his past. Tenshi tells the story of his death; he traveled to Skypiea as a human and became the ambassador of the Blue Sea. White Wing Pirates then took advantage of this and caused a war in Skypiea, which ended up in the death of Tenshi and the exile of his best friend. Tenshi has been searching for able souls to travel to the White Sea and take back Skypiea and help his friend. Using his Devil Fruit, Tenshi separated himself into two entities the other being Akuma. Akuma simply battled the Red Wing Pirates to prove their strength and sacrificed himself once he witnessed Romeo's incredible courage. The Red Wing Pirates are touched by Tenshi's story. Having already considered him their friend, they decide to follow through with Tenshi's wishes. Squall speaks for the Pirates when he promises to find his lost friend and take back Skypiea. They leave Tenshi behind to rest and regrettably take Akuma's body along to collect the bounty. The Marine's Buster Call results with several Marine ships firing their cannons upon all of Thriller Bark, causing it to break apart. All of the creatures of Thriller Barks soul's are being released into the after life thanks to Akuma's defeat but the Gatekeeper fights to protect the island, but is simply shot down. Thanks to its regenerative abilities, it survives and with Tenshi's last wish he leads the Red Wing Pirates to safety. The gigantic being takes them in hand and sets them upon a Marine ship, which they storm and take by force. Damaged beyond the point of regeneration, the beast disintegrates but a body falls out of its remains. The crew sets sail and take the unconscious body aboard with them. Eventually the man awakens and tells him his identity as Ramon the shipwright who wished to see the largest ship in the world "Thriller Bark", revealing the islands past as being a ship. He asks to be the crews shipwright, hoping to return the favor for the crew freeing him, they agree.
New Birka Arc
The crew returns to Port Town and informs Clive about everything that's happened. Clive drunkenly agrees to head to Skypiea due to his own hopes of finding "Shandora the City of Gold". The crew is interrupted by the arrival of a strange masked man. The man reveals himself to be named "Zaiel" and he has been tracking the group ever since Tenshi's soul was put to rest back on Thriller Bark. Romeo and the others deduce that Zaiel was the friend who Tenshi mentioned on the Island and Zaiel confirms. Zaiel explains a grave situation where the once peaceful land of Skypiea has succumbed to a hostile takeover at the hands of beings known as "Birkans". Birkans and Skypieans once lived in peace side by side but their was war and at its conclusion the Birkans were cast out to the moon where they were exiled forever. These "New Birkans" that took over the current Skypiea are secretly being lead by Mel D Tsubasa in his attempt to control Skypiea. Clive sobers up at the sound of Tsubasa's name and gets serious about the crew helping Zaiel free Skypiea from his clutches. Ramon builds the group a new ship they name the Tenshi, and they sail off to the Island of Jaya.
Zaiel explains the Island of Jaya is the only remaining way of getting into Skypiea. Skypiea sits above the clouds on the "White Sea" and the only way of getting from the land into the clouds is the "Knock Up Stream" which is a giant pillar of water that will carry a ship into the White Sea. The Knock Up Stream only occurs 10 times a year and the next one is in less then a week. Zaiel follows up on this information by telling the crew that the Marines are building a Sea Train in Jaya which will lead directly to the Knock Up Stream. On the way to Jaya Romeo on the others work with Ramon to harness his dark powers. He was infected with the souls of hundreds of monsters which he can bring to fruition by changing one of his limbs into a piece of a monster. The crew eventually arrives at Jaya short on supplies so Clive leaves the group to collect some while the others try and locate the Sea Train. Before long the crew finds themselves lost in the thick jungle of Jaya and they cross paths with Marines lead by Romeo's former friend Julian. Before the two can fight Squall makes short work of Julian, sending him flying to another location.
Romeo and the others try to fight off the other Marines but the situation turns sour when Ramon is injured, resulting in him transforming into the giant Gatekeeper beast. He begins to rampage just as the newest Marine Captain; Kurono Azolf arrives on the scene. Kurono reveals Julian is his new lieutenant and they are on Jaya to test the Sea Train. Meanwhile Ramon rampages through the forest, leaving most of the crew to try and contain him while Romeo deals with Azolf. Zaiel and Squall are able to immobilize Ramon long enough for Lyndis to talk him down to his original form. Romeo forces Azolf to retreat and the crew follows him to the early departure of the Sea Train in time. On board the train, the crew battles from cable car to cable car searching for Azolf and eventually cross paths with Julian. Romeo demands that he take Julian one on one while the rest of the crew goes on ahead. Romeo immediately attacks with his Devil Fruit powers, only to be nullified by Julian's "Sea-stone Knuckle". Very reminiscent to Chaser's staff, Julian's brass knuckle is able to cancel out Romeo's abilities if he punches them. Unafraid, Romeo fights on and questions why Julian betrayed him. Julian responds to Romeo both verbally and physically, fighting back and telling him that Romeo was leading him down the wrong path and his father "Chaser" has strayed him back to his true dream of being a Marine. At a disadvantage, Romeo takes several bruise inducing and bone breaking his from Julian's attacks but is still able to dish some of his own back at Julian. The brawl is interrupted momentarily when the sea train is derailed off course, but Romeo uses this chance to throw a fearsome punch which is met by Julian's own featuring his sea-stone knuckle. At the cost of breaking his hand, Romeo shatters the knuckle when the former friend's fist's meet. Romeo uses his free hand to create a giant purple fist and without his knuckle, Julian is sent flying out of the Sea Train.
After defeating Julian Romeo meets up with Zaiel and Ramon, whom work together to get the train running and on course again. Outside of the train, Lyndis deals with both Azolf and the second interceptor, Captain Chaser. With the train clear of Marine's the crew sails into the Knock Up Stream which appears out of no where. The crew regains consciousness floating in a sea of clouds leaving in most of the crew including Lyndis at the sight of Heavens gate. The crew swims to shore and are welcomed by winged people who Zaiel convinces to let them past. He later explains that he and the gatekeepers were once allies and although it is dangerous, they did him a favor by allowing the crew passage. Clive randomly appears out of the clouds, saying he reached the Sea Train at the last second by following Chaser. Clive separates the crew into teams in order to cover more ground.
Romeo is partnered with Ramon and they are ordered to start causing Chaos in the city to offset the works of the authority known as the White Berets (Marine's of the White Sea). This choas would cover the covert operations of the rest of the crew. Romeo decides the best and fastest way to do this is by attacking the largest government building in the city. They do this and cause a large amount of havic which draws the attention of not only the White Berets but the Sky Knights as well. The Sky Knights are the strongest warriors in Skypiea and are more commonly referred to as "Priests". Priest Earl, a strange man in a mask who controls flying puppets arrives and easily subdues Romeo and Ramon. This is actually apart of the plan, as hours later Romeo and Ramon cause a prison riot with the other inamates which are all "Shandians", the native warrior race on Skypiea. Hoping to take the city by overthrowing this small branch of government, the Red Wing Pirates start an all out brawl throughout the city. Romeo and Ramon escape the prison after freeing the Shandians and arrive to a battlefield of Shandians, "Blue Sea People, and Skypieans fighting against Birkans. Romeo is also shocked to find that Gajeel has arriv ed in Skypiea to help. Ultimately confused on the entire situation, the conflict comes to a still when "God" Jarilo arrives to destroy the entirety of "Lovely Island" (The Island the city is floating atop). He destroys the island in a giant pillar of lightning but luckily the Red Wings and their allies are all able to get to safety, hiding back at the Shandian stronghold.
Ten Trials Arc
Weeks pass after the destruction of Lovely Island, and the Red Wing Pirates and the Shandians formally forge themselves into an alliance known as the "Red Rebellion". Luna and Zaiel act as the overall leaders of the rebellion and they prepare everyone for an attack on sacred territory known as the "Upper Yard". The Upper Yard is the only place of vegetation that resembles the Blue Sea because it is the first island of Skypiea. It hosts Shandora and the Shandians territory on Skypiea but has been since taken over by the Birkans and Jarilo. Although to get to Jarilo, the Red Rebellion must face the five Birkan Priests and the "Ten Trials". The Ten Trials are ten different ordeals that any invader must endure to navigate through the upper yard.No is aware of what the Ten Trials are but Luna formulates a plan to take them head on. Firstly everyone is split into four divisions, Romeo being apart of the second division commanded by him and Lyndis. Everyone is to use Shandian Wave riders to ride the "milky roads" (paths made of Clouds) set up many years ago by the Shandians in order to infiltrate the Upper yard. Before the team departs, Romeo confronts Gajeel about his motives, obviously being very untrusting of the Red Wing crew's former enemy. Gajeel explains that he was saved by Clive who he agreed to help so he could find his lost friend in Skypiea who turned out to be brainwashed into becoming a Birkan priest but has been since freed and entered into the ranks of the Red Rebellion.Once the entire invasion force arrives in the Upper Yard they are met by a White Beret Vanguard featuring hundreds of soldiers. This proves to be the first of the Ten Trials; The Trial of Invasion. During all of the fighting Romeo and Gajeel compete to see who can take down more enemies, Gajeel has the lead most of the way through the fight Romeo is able to tie it by the time all of the white berets are taken out. Romeo and Gajeel laugh after the accomplishment, seeming to break down the barrier between the two and open the door to them becoming friends. The Red Rebellion successfully completes the trial by defeating all of the Berets. But celebrations are short, as the Rebellion are unaware of what to do next. Ramon and Romeo deduce it must have something to do with the altar which sits center of the battlefield. The two climb the altar and find a switch shaped like a skull, the turn the switch on and are immediately struck by lightning. Luna quickly realises that the rebellion is faced with a second trial that requires a sacrifice to stand above an altar and be constantly struck by lightning. As long as the sacrifice remains alive, four portals will remain open and allow others to pass through and move onto the next trials. Gajeel volunteers himself because he feels his iron body is the ideal choice, Romeo is distraught by Gajeel's decision feeling bad for him but pays his respects by fistbumping his new friend before moving on.
Division two (lead by Ramon and Lyndis) arrive in a strange area where the trees and ground have elastic properties and the only means of safe travel are milky roads. Berets arrive and surround the heroes but they are able to travel along mikly roads using dials supplied by the shandians called "'wave dials" that attach to the bottom of ones feet and allows them to skate on milky roads without falling through. They defeat their opposition and navigate correctly through the elastic environment to complete the "Trial of Texture". They move on to the next area which is a more extreme version of the last, with entire portions of land unnaturally distorted. To top it off the division is met by Priest Trance, the Sky Knight who fought with Lyndis and nearly killed her while Romeo was imprisoned. Trance explains that the object of the trial is to unlock the door at the end of the milky roads before it completely disappears.
Trance slides along the milky roads by using his chest plate, running away with the key and begging the trial. Romeo and Lyndis immediately pursue Trance using their wave dials. The duo's pursuit is of little avail as Trance constantly uses his "Soft Sword" to liquify the surrounding environment and cut off the route of Lyndis and Romeo, as well as using explosive dials that act similarly to bombs to cause chaos. The Shandian warriors that accompanied Romeo help out by using "Milky Dials" to create new roads that Lyndis and Romeo could travel and use to chase Trance. Romeo nearly lands a hit but Trance is able to dodge and destroy the milky roads, trapping the duo in that area. Trance makes his way back to the entrance of the trial and makes short work of the Shandian aids. With momentum on his side Trance decides to attack Lyndis and Romeo, his first attack results in him liquifing a tree and trapping Romeo within it. He proceeds to corner Lyndis but she is saved by one of Romeo's glow attacks thats liquified in the place of Lyndis' sword (having no choice but to parry Trance's attack). Lyndis immediately unleases a flurry of attacks that keeps Trance on the defensive and eventually forces him to retreat.
Romeo quickly informs Lyndis that theres a path of liquified trees that Lyndis should be able to break through and strike Trance. Knowing just the way to do it, Lyndis uses her Denki: Kagamine ability to pierce through several liquifed trees and directly lands a hit on Trance. Destroying much of his armor and greatly injuring the Knight, Trance drops the Key and Lyndis unlocks the door to compete the "Trial of Liquefaction". After checking on the Shandians, Division two moves onto the next trial where they meet up with Pansera Ruri (Gajeel's ally) and Mars (Luna's brother and Shandian fighter). As soon as the group arrives in the next area, they are struck by a giant beam of light enduced by Earl's puppets "Draco Formation" attack. This results in the Shandians including Mars becoming incapacitated, leaving Lyndis, Romeo and Ruri unharmed. Their allies rise again under the control of Earl. His trial takes over the mind of the incapacitated and makes them fight against their friends until they are all under his control. Mars immediately strikes down Ruri, who is then put under Earl's control. Romeo trys to stop Ruri while Lyndis duels with fellow swordsmen Mars. She is able to disarm Mars but he simply overpowers her by pinning her down, she couldn't resist because she didn't want to cut her Mars. They are then both blasted by Earl's puppets, defeating Lyndis and taking her body under his control. This leaves Romeo alone to combat his comrades. Romeo is able to use his Blue Glow to freeze everyone other then Lyndis.
Earl's puppets support Lyndis as they all ambush Romeo and eventually pin him to the ground (4 of 5 puppet holding one of his limbs). Earl, who is hiding somewhere in the forest prepares to order Lyndis to kill Romeo instead of taking control of him. Romeo prepares for the end but finds himself face to face in a strange white space with Tenshi. Tenshi explains that by taking on his will, Tenshi resides within Romeo's soul (the white space). He thanks Romeo and tells him that he will unlock a power dormant within Romeo's souls so he can defeat Earl. Romeo agrees and finds himself back in reality with the ability to summon a new glow. His new glow is green and he quickly names it ライム地震 Raimu Jishin which allows controls the earth. Romeo is able to free himself by creating spikes of rock which destroy most of Earl's puppets and he quickly traps Lyndis in a stone cage. The glow also allows Romeo to feel the earth which leads him to Earl's location. Romeo uses his purple glow to strech a giant fist and strike Earl out of hiding, the priest then admits defeat allowing Romeo to complete the "Trial of Personas". Everyone is released from Earl's mind control but only Lyndis and Romeo are healthy enough to move on through the next portal.
Turns out everyone was able to complete the Ten Trials and arrive in the city of Shandora. Despite everyone completing their trial only Romeo, Lyndis, Squall and Zaiel are well enough to face Jarilo. The God descended from his throne atop a gigantic bean stalk and congradualted the group on making it this far. Seeing this a chance to show his dominance, Jarilo excitingly and meniacly attacks the group. He dispatches Squall first using his Goro Goro no Mi which gives him the power to generate, manipulate and even becoming electricity. Without Squall's speed enducing light, keeping up with Jarilo is impossible as he can move as fast as a bolt of lightning. Before long Romeo and Lyndis are both knocked unconcious. Romeo eventually awakens to Gajeel returning to the battlefield although battlescared from the second trial. He and Zaiel proved to be a match for Jarilo, having trapped him in a pool of "Iron Sand". Despite the teams best efforts, Jarilo escapes his prison and angrily prepares a torrent of lightning to vaporize the Red Rebellion. Just as the end is spelled for the group, Clive arrives on the scene and crushes Jarilo's lightning with his own Devil Fruit. Lyndis and the others for the first time view Clive's incredible power first hand, as he is able to go one on one with Jarilo. Clive is able to physcially shatter Jarilo's lightning, making him able to outmatch Jarilo
Clive tells Jarilo (and those watching the battle including Romeo) that he had been doing heavy reconnaissance, and it took him a while but he finnally discovered an old Skypiean secret. Tenshi's soul had given hints inside of Clive's mind that lead him to the "Tenojinn". An ancient temple that fortells the origins of Skypiea and all of its history, including what was recorded by Tenshi's dying body. In the temple he found Tenshi's original body, a skeleton holding a book that has recorded the truth of the "New Birkans". It tells the story of an Angel whom stole the remains of "God and gave them to subjects who then would become Angels and Gods. The truth behind this story is that Tsubasa, leader of the White Wing Pirates was a large part of a tower that would reach to Heaven, a plan by the World Government to reach Skypiea. Slaves were illegally gathered and used to build this tower, and amongst these slaves were the Preists of New Birka as Children. The children selected from the hundreds of slaves were implanted with the cells of God Enel, whos remains had been discovered by Tsubasa. By combinding his remains with a special type of Dial known as a Soul Dial, the Enel's birkan power was transferred directly into Mel's test subjects. Their memories were then tampered with, and they were brainwashed into believing they were an opprossed Empire waiting to rise against Skypiea. Then they were all strategically placed by Mel, and they successfully took over Skypiea, creating their current government.
This truth is only proven by Jarilo's reaction, remembering the times of the tower and even his experimentation. Jarilo is enraged through his denial and plans to use hiss ultimate Mantra to completely destroy Skypiea. Clive leaves Romeo to counter the attack, who is empowered by Tenshi's final wishes, and enters his Rainbow form which was first used against Gajeel. Romeo unveils his "Secret Glowing Technique: Teniro" which creates a flurry of hundreds of glows that impact and defeat Jarilo once and for all. With Jarilo's defeat, the Birkans are outcasted and Zaiel becomes the new deserving King of Skypiea. After thanking the Red Wing Pirates, the two parites go their seperate ways and the Red Wing Pirates return to the Blue Sea.
Frozen Faceoff Arc
Gajeel and Ruri officially join the Red Wing Pirates and Romeo shows off his new glow while the crew sails aimlessly through the waters despite Romeo's supposed navigation. Prior to the Birkans defeat, Mel sent the group a message detailing his location in the Grandline, officially declaring war on the Red Wing Pirates. While on their way, the crew questions the history between Clive and Tsubasa. Clive explains the two were originnaly parteners, co-captains of the Wing Pirates. Eventually Clive and Mel became Devil Fruit hunters, and together they discovered the Masu Masu no Mi and the Sora Sora no Mi. They both consumed their respective Devil Fruits and traveled together to the New World where they were both known as the top Super Rookies. Together they were standing on top of the Pirate world, until Mel began to stray off the path of "heroism". Clive was always interested in adventure, while Mel wanted to control the pirate empire. They both wanted to be the King of Pirates but for conflicting reasons. Mel began to realize that Clive would stand in his way and so he allied himself with the Shichibukai; the seven lords of the Sea. By allying himself with the World Government, his crew was amnested from their bounties and safe from Marine's allowing Melchiorre to have the support of the most powerful empire in the World. In order to gain entry, he turned in his entire crew, including Clive over to the Marine's via ambush during the night. Everyone was either killed or captured in the assualt other then Clive himself. Clive fought off his attackers but lost an arm and a leg in the process, along with several of his organs.
Immediately at the end of the Clive's story, the groups ship is ambushed by mysterious pirates who have the ability to glide through the air. It is also not long before the crew realizes these pirates are nearly invincibile. Clive is able to repel most of them by himself and he warns his mates to run as this is the work of an infamous pirate named "Leiurus Faust". Faust reveals himself and explains his ultimate army of robotic pirates cannot be beaten. Faust demands that Clive come with him alone or else he will kill the rest of the crew. Seeing no other way out, Clive allows himself to be taken so his crew can escape. The crew is left without their ship on a secluded island somewhere in the Grandline. Squall explains Faust is a "Pacifista" a government cyborg weapon and he is also one of the Seven Sea Warlords like Tsubasa. This means it is likely that Clive has been turned over to Mel and his message was actually a trap. Ramon interrupts, warning the crew that a Marine ship is arriving on the shore of the Island. The marines are once again lead by Kurono Azolf and Julian, who were tipped off by Faust so they could arrest the crew.
While the rest of the crew fight off Azolf and the other Marines, Romeo faces off with Julian. Enraged, Romeo demands to know why Julian would go back to the Marine's after the promise the two made. Julian explains that he's realized that life isn't all about fun and their must be justice so he can protect people rather then just cause Chaos. While the two duke it out, Romeo makes a case that Pirates are protecting people while the Marine's politics allow people to suffer. Julian becomes distraught and shows off his "Rokushiki" skills that employ incredible martial arts abilities. One Rokushiki skill " 剃 Soru" allows him to move faster then the eye can see. Julian gains the upper hand and knocks Romeo off his feet, but as Romeo gets back on his feet he proclaims that no matter what the Marines teach Julian he will never gain the strength that Romeo has gotten by fighting for his comrades. Romeo then ignites his Blue Glow in one hand and his Green Glow in the other and combines them into a "Brilliant Glow" which is a cyan colored glow which holds Julian completely immobile, allowing Squall to intervine and capture him. The rest of the crew suceeds in pusing Azolf and the other Marines back long enough that the crew takes a Marine ship and escapes.
Gajeel leads the group to an old ally named "Tankos Skyren" who he and his Sub-Zero pirate crew control all a large string of Winter Islands known as the "Frozen Gardens". With Julain captured, Squall interrogates him and the crew learns that Clive has been taken to a fort on Drum Island, which is another winter island that is at war with the Frozen Gardens. The crew arrives in a makeshift Kingdom where the trees, walkways, walls and even the castle itself are all made of ice. They meet with Skyren inside his castle where he sits upon his throne. Gajeel explains the situation, hoping that Skyren will help them infultrate the military stronghold on Drum Island who the Sub Zero pirates are at war with. Skyren agrees at a cost, Lyndis must become his queen. Lyndis is appauled by the Ice King's suggestion but Gajeel agrees to his terms, much to the dislike of the crew. Skyren also reveals his second condition is they must bring back a man named "Rose" from the prison.
Skyren leads them down a secret Frozen tunnel where they must follow for several miles in the blistering cold. Lyndis takes up her frustrations with Gajeel (who's suffering from extreme temperature rust) on the way. He explains they simply don't hand Lyndis over after retrieving Clive and Rose, crossing the young king. Lyndis and the other grudgingly agree and continue along the path for a little under a day until they finally arrive inside a facility controlled by Sub Zero Pirates. The Pirates explain that Drum Island has many "Drum" shapped mountains, and everyone is currently inside one Skyren had hollowed out so his men could hide inside. Skyren's comrads dress like Marine's and make the crew dress as their prisoners in order to infultrate the base. They also use the captured Julian as bait in order to make the Red Wing Pirates capture realistic.
The crew heads to the base which is the 100th Marine Regiments infamous fort, a giant wall like structure that streches from one Drum mountain to another. Julian explains that the Marines in the 100th Regiment are among the toughest across the sea, and they are lead by Marine Admiral Lyra Knewman. The group is intercepted by a group of Marines who confirm their story before letting them into the base. Julian follows the plan and tells the Marine's that he's captured Clive's crewmates. The plan would have worked if not for the arrival of White Wing Pirate; Diyan R Keis who can tell the young man is lying. The crew breaks their fake restraints and are forced to fight by the surrounding Marines. Julian makes a break for it and Romeo chases after him, Julain runs atop the fort using his Soru ability and Romeo pursues by using his purple glow to pull himself to the top. The two are quickly confronted by Marine Commodore and second in command of Drum Fort Steel Arm Mammon. Mammon quickly attacks Romeo using his trademark cybernetic arm equipped with gattling guns, missles and a chainsaw to overpower Romeo. Before the Marine finishes off Romeo, Julian comes to his friends rescue after self reflection. Julian explains to Mammon that Romeo is his friend and no matter what the Marine's do he will never be as strong as Romeo because they have nothing to protect other then their own corrupted ideals. Enfuriated, Mammon attacks Julian but his defeated after Julian uses a technique that ingnites his fist in flames and strikes through the arm of Mammon, destroying it.
He helps the injured Romeo through the fort, looking for the prison but Romeo begins to cry after realizing his friend is back at his side. The reunion is interrupted by Marine Admiral and first in command Ice Queen Lyra Knewman. Julian runs with Romeo after trying to explain to Lyra that the Red Wing Pirates are not evil, but they are caught and Julian is shot and stabbed by Lyra for his betrayl. The two are then imprisoned but are quickly freed by the arrival of their allies who won the battle outside the fort. As a group, they tend to Julian's wounds as he passes out but remains alive. They then free Rose, who sits in solitude within his unique cell which holds him connected to several wires and is completely incaged. Rose awkaens and reveals his nature by defending the crerw against an impending Marine ambush. Rose is a "Pacifista" a government created cyborg weapon and thus possesses incredibilities. Rose then informs the crew that their captain Clive has already been transferred to another Marine base known as "Angel's Lobby".
Dissapointed with the news, Lyndis and the crew return to the Frozen Gardens to hand over Rose. They meet with Skyren who expects both Rose and Lyndis, but Rose immediately resists and rampages claiming that he will not become anyones weapon. Lyndis also resists and runs from Skyren, who chases her after quickly dispatching Squall by knocking him through a wall of ice. Romeo, Ramon and Gajeel try to calm Rose by claiming this is all a misunderstanding and Skyren wants him to join his crew as reward for freeing him. Rose refuses to believe this and reveals that he was human once but was transformed into a cyborg so he could be used as a weapon, and Skyren wishes only to replicate this. Ramon and Gajeel try to suprise attack Ramon but are easily overwhelmed by Rose's hyperextending limbs, inpenetrable defense, missles and lasers that shoot from his eyes amongst many other weapons. Romeo trys to understand Rose's position and tells the cyborg that he can help him make his own life and own path, but Rose refuses to believe and pins down Romeo. Before he finishes off the pirate, Squall blasts him and saves Romeo on his way to save Lyndis from Skyren.
Once again hoping to sway Rose, Romeo says that Rose could join them on the Red Wing's journey to help save people. Rose then speaks to Romeo as if he see's him as someone else, a boy he once knew. After his vision Rose wishes to see Romeo's brand of "Justice", seeing this as a challenge Romeo duels Rose. He uses his Blue Glow ability ヒドラブリザード Hidora Burizado" to create dragon head shaped glows which freeze Rose's ultimate defense which turns out to be blades the purge Rose's body involuntarilty to protect him from any attack. Romeo then strikes and breaks several of these blades, knokcing Rose down. But instead of finishing off Rose, Romeo extands his hand to help him. Rose accepts Romeo's gesture and decides that he will help on the Red Wing's journey. Meanwhile, Squall activates a powerful and dark power which engulfs the Frozen Gardens in hellfire in order to defeat Skyren. Skyren surrenders after being badly beaten but this doesn't stop Squall from rampaging. Lyndis is freed from her frozen prison and before Squall destroys everything she tells him the truth from her heart. The truth is Lyndis has fallen in love with Squall after everything theyv've been through, she says shes loved him since the days that he accompanied her by the tree and has loved him till even now. Squall reverts from his ifrit form and embraces Lyndis, leading to the two to finally kiss. Romeo ruins the moment by shouting his disguist and the crew leaves the Frozen Gardens to pursue their captain with Rose and Lyndis onboard.
BountiesRomeo gained his first major bounty after attacking the Marine Base in Port Town with Julian Chaser, resulting in the assault of Marine Captain Chaser. His poster was not released until he defeated Black Steel Gajeel, the most powerful pirate in the east blue. These two events gave Romeo a bounty of 15,000,000.
Romeo's second bounty is the result of several run ins with Lieutenant Julian Chaser and his Captain Kurono Azolf. Romeo and his crew escaped a Buster Call on Thriller Bark after injuring Azolf and his men and battled them once again on Jaya Island, resulting in the Red Wing Pirates stealing (and destroying) the prototype Sea Train. These run ins with the Marine's gave the rainbow pirate a bounty of 50,000,000. His picture was taken while he was watching Ramon transform, hence the distressed look on his face.
Romeo is commonly known as "Rainbow" (虹 Niji). His Devil Fruit allows him to produce lights called "glows" which appear in the various colors of the rainbow.
