-Hellsing D. Nero
Hellsing D. Nero is the captain of the Wukong Pirates. Nero ate the Saru Saru no Mi, Model: Sun Wukong. Nero's goal is to become King of The Pirates and he plans to do so by not only finding the One Piece but defeating all 4 Yonko.
Nero has dark red hair and brown eyes. He is quite short for a male; standing at only 5’7”. In confliction with his love of food, Nero is quite fit and is moderately muscular due to his intense training. He also has a tail, due to eating a Devil Fruit.
He sports a blue jaded pendant around his neck, and wears an unbuttoned black shirt with his master's family name on the back, arm protectors, a tiger-pelted jacket wrapped around his waist, and yellow trousers.
Nero also walks around barefoot for an unknown reason and wears a gold anklet.
Nero is an athletic, rustic, and friendly boy who is searching for adventure. Also, he isn't very good at math. However, having spent a lot of time in the islands and woods as a child, he is very good with animals. When normal, Nero is a pretty happy guy, he has a brave and heroic personality,and will risk his lives for friends, enemies, and strangers alike.
Nero is a highly optimistic person, choosing to think positive and upbeat. He is an upbeat and brash person, and although he is simple minded at times, he has a strong sense of justice. Nero is really competitive and loves to compete. He's simple minded and determined. Simultaneously, his flaws lie in his temper and impulsive nature. However, Nero is very quick to anger, he is short-tempered, aggressive, blunt and stands his ground, characteristics that had mixed in his fighting style.
He's also shown to be very rebellious and also pretty lazy. He's very honest, sarcastic, laid back and has a somewhat go with the flow personality. Nero also possesses an indomitable force of will; in situations where most others would give up and resign themselves to defeat or imprisonment, and in situations where he is severely outnumbered and outgunned, he always forges on, never loses faith in himself and never quits or submits. However, this can also lead to him being on the brink of death against more powerful opponents.
Nero has a lot of self-confidence and possesses a large ego to match it, making him sassy, cocky, quick-witted and sometimes overconfident in his abilities. He has a lot of attitude, shows a lot of sarcasm through his gestures and has a narcissistic tongue. He often jokes around to light the mood, but will also take any opportunity to taunt and mock his opponents, and takes many of the lesser situations he faces lighthearted. He is also not generally modest when it comes to his abilities and is very proud of his skills, smug and a showoff.
Nero's personality is a juxtaposition of kindness and ferocity. He is extremely benevolent and firmly stands for freedom, but he is never the one to rest in the face of injustice or oppression. Likewise, Nero is shown to have a remarkable capacity to forgive, forgiving Jin after he had tried to kill him alot.
He's a workhorse training alot so he can improve his abilities, but he's obsessive, which can make him clumsy at times. However, Nero is far from perfect. His short temper has been shown to get him into alot of trouble, his impulsive nature has made him fall for traps and tend to blurt things out as soon as they pop into his head as shown by when he say's "Sometimes my brain doesn't know what my mouth is saying.". He feels responsible for his friends and anything bad that happens to them. He will risk his life for his friends and even a complete stranger, this has almost gotten him killed plenty of times. Because of his adventurous attitude he cannot stay still for very long saying it "Makes him all fidgety". His overconfidence, light-heart,and adventures nature can cause him to get on his crews nerves.

He wields a huge golden staff.
Nero ate the Saru Saru no Mi, Model: Sun Wukong.
During the time-skip, Nero learned Haki from Shanks.
Busoshoku Haki: Busoshoku Koka: This technique somehow uses Busōshoku Haki to drastically harden his body (or parts of it). How exactly it works is currently unknown.
Kenbunshoku Haki (Color of Observation or Mantra): A form of Haki that allows the user to sense the presence of his opponents. A user of this type of Haki can predict an opponent's moves before he gets hit. This works by showing the user an image or brief "premonition" of what the opponent will do, manifested as a mental image in the user's mind's eye, and the damage the user will take if the attack "hit" for real. It appears that the more killer intent the enemy has the easier they are to predict, though more efficient users can predict future moves regardless whether there are ambient murderous intents or not. Including the distance, location, and where the opponent may strike next. He has used this to dodge Kizaru's lasers.
Haōshoku Haki (Color of the Conquering King): Nero is one of the people who's will is strong enough to use Haōshoku Haki. The ability to knock out someone else or a large group. While inexperienced users are restricted to intimidating one being or blindly knocking out any with weak wills around them, those with more expertise can pick out weak willed individuals in a large group to knock out. Shanks has taught Nero how to control this ability. Before being taught by Shanks, Nero was only able to knock out people in dire situations, such as when he knocked out a group of people in Impel Down. After training with Shanks, Nero has knocked out many weak willed marines with this Haki alone, and was able to slightly damage a marine ship with this ability.
Soru: The Soru allows the users to move at extremely high speeds in order to avoid attacks, as well as to attack at higher speeds and with greater power by kicking of the ground 10 or 20 times a second.
Rankyaku: The Rankyaku is a powerful projectile technique, in which the users start by kicking at very high speeds and strength, sending out a sharp compressed air blade that can slice objects and greatly damage a human body. However, it has been shown that almost any length of appendage (such as a tail or neck) at high velocities are also capable of this move.
Shigan: Nero stabs an opponent with his finger, leaving a wound similar to a bullet wound.
Nero found his Devil Fruit when he was 5 years old, inside of an anbondon Pirate Ship, he then ate it. As a child, Nero aspired to be a Pirate and met Edward Newgate. Being inspired by the captain, he told him about his dream. Wanting to become King of the Pirates. Whitebeard bet him that he couldn't do it and he told Whitebeard that he would, even if it meant kicking his ass.
Gathering the crew
After leaving Windmill Village when he turned 15, Nero set out to find a pirate crew. He traveled out in a small fishing boat to Shimotsuki Village to find a swordsman, and he met Shino Kosaka who is know as "The Assassin" with a bounty of 20,000,000. Nero promised Shino that he would help him become the world's greatest swordsmen if he will help Nero become King of the Pirates. They made a deal but Shino warned Nero that if anytime Nero was getting in the way of his true goal, he wouldn't hesitate to kill him. So they set off.
Nero and Shino set off on an Island, and they met Kyla, a very shy yet money loving girl. Nero saved her from some bandits that she stole from, and he looked through her bag and found maps and she told him that her dream was to draw a map of the entire world including the New World. Kyla asked could she join Nero's crew and Nero said of course she could.
The three of them set off onto an Island in the East Blue called Hamel. They met a cowardly yet kind young man named Chung Seiker. When they met him, he tried to intimidate them by telling them he had a Pirate Crew of 90,000 followers. Of course they saw right through his lies and terrified him by Nero telling him he knew Whitebeard. Then Chung tells them about Ran, the man who kidnapped his childhood friend Ara. Chung showed his skills as an archer when fought against Ran's henchmen. Nero defeated Ran and told Chung to join his Pirate Crew. At first Chung was reluctant because of the terrors of the sea, but he promised Ara that he would come back one day and tell her all about his journey. He then left with the Pirates to join the crew. He built the Wukong Pirates first ship, The Howling Ape.
They then traveled to Shimura Island, where they were then locked up and after Nero and Killua caused a commotion with the guards, they were put into the islands prison. There they met the Prison's cook a young man named Tristan Belmont. A collected, womanizer that loves the culinary arts. The prison itself was ran by Marine Captain Shuro. After tasting Tristan's cooking, Nero asked him to join his crew. Tristan declined on multiple occasions. Nero and Shino then started a prison riot, and Tristan showed off his Martial Arts skill and that he uses "Strong Fist Style" against some of the prisoners and guards. They escape the prison. While in the middle of all this, Kyla uses the commotion to take the Growling Wolf ship and left the crew to go back to her home with the treasure and liquor they had. Nero gets into a battle with Shuro and defeats him. Tristan, feeling indebted to Nero agreed to join his Pirate Crew as his chef.
Kyla Retrieval Arc
Kyla returned to Gino's Park, in Comoko Island. Gino is a normal sized giant who is very powerful(At least within East Blue). Kyla has a contract with Gino that is unbreakable, he will let her draw her map of the world if she does it for him. Everything she does has to be done for Gino so that she can keep her money and that Gino will not destroy the village. Gino gave her treasure to the Marines, when she confronted him about hit he denied it and threatened her saying he did not break their deal. Gino then walked back to his park.
Nero didn't want anyone else as his navigator and they made there way to Comoko Island, much to Shino's dismay and Tristan's happiness. Nero found her thrashing around and spazzing out. Nero stopped her and she told him to go away. He told her that he would kick Gino's ass. And they walked to Gino's Park. They defeated the Giant Pirates, and Nero defeated Gino and destroyed Gino's Park and said "You'll always be my nakama!" Kyla then permanently joined the Wolf Fang Pirates.
Getting His First Bounty
Nero goes to get back Kyla's treasure, it was with Marine Captain Illumi. Nero defeated him and got back Kyla's treasure. And from taking out both Captain Shuro and Captain Illumi and because they both wanted revenge on him, it made Nero's first bounty 40,000,000.

After introducing themselves and apologizing for the damages Nero and Luffy became instant friends. Laughing and drinking together and seeing who could eat and drink more. They told each other their goals and while they both have the same goal that didn't change anything, they simply said they would have to fight one day. They decided to travel together for a time.
