Whoooo! Slow down guys (guys right?)! You shouldnt fight, just wait and see… You cant really tell anything is certain, untill proven othervice.
It was also noticed in another topic that Mihawk's ship seems to be able to move without wind. This makes me think that he may have dials on his ship that propel him forward. Since dials are unique to Sky Island, this makes me think that he went up to Skypea on Roger's ship and acquired some then….
I tihnk I have someway heard that the ship actualy dont have anything he can row with, nor dials, nor sales. It just goes with the flow, or so I've heard from somewhere. So him appearing for the first time would actualy be a surprise… :blink:
But back to the actual topic, I personaly think hes ex-member of Roger's pirates. Not that I have any proofs. But I think it had gone somehow like this; Most of the "warlords of the sea" (Sory, cant remember how the cooler word is splled) we actualy Roger's grew, and the rebeled for some reason. So after Roger was caught they got their fansy names and their bounty was "removed".
Still, there are just crazy ass theories.
