Charlotte Linlin, Big Mom, Kaido’s old acquaintance, was also a member of the now defunct Rocks Pirates.
When Kaido was still an apprentice on the ship, Charlotte Linlin was already an official crew member.
And when Kaido had stepped aboard the ship, she warned him about Rocks not being trustworthy, and that he can look for her if he needs something.
She regards Kaido as her younger brother, and on the day when Rocks Pirates was destroyed, she gave the Fish-Fish Fruit-Mythical Zoan- Model Azure Dragon to Kaido.
It can be said that Kaido was able to leave God Valley thanks to the Devil Fruit given by Charlotte Linlin, so Charlotte Linlin has always said that Kaido owes her a big favor.
Now it has been five years since Rocks, the overlord of the sea, died.
Roger has not yet become the Pirate King.
There is no concept of Pirate King and Emperor of the Sea in the sea yet, but there are still many powerful pirates.
They regard some islands as their territory, develop their own strength, and become the emperor of an area.
Among these pirates, the powerful pirates of New World have the most status.
Charlotte Linlin is such a person, she now has her own territory in New World, and she is more proficient in gathering a large amount of information than Kaido.
“John Why are you looking for him”
At this time, Charlotte Linlin’s pirate crew is on an island full of fruits.
Her chef was making fruit and vegetable cakes, while she was rubbing her bulging belly to nourish the fetus.
Looking at the first Four Emperors, Whitebeard relied on adopting sons, Kaido opened a kindergarten*, Shanks looked for comrades all over the world, while Big Mom found husbands from all over the world and was hard at work giving birth to a family.
[*I think author here is talking about how the members in Kaido’s crew are mainly much younger than him.]
The main members of the Big Mom Pirates are also completely composed of her own sons and daughters, son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws.
They have a very powerful family atmosphere.
At this time, she was carrying the 40th child in her belly.
She was quite happy when her little brother Kaido called suddenly, but she didn’t expect that the moment he opened his mouth, he would inquire about John’s whereabouts.
“You don’t have to worry about it, I just want to know where John is”
“Huh Kaido, is this how you act towards your benefactor”
“I told you not to keep holding on to this matter.
Do you know John’s whereabouts or not”
“Well, well, Kaido, you are still so impatient.
There are rumors that he has a lot of treasures in his hands.
Have you also taken a fancy to them Do you want to join forces with me We can share those treasures equally.
John is not easy to deal with.”
Big Mom smiled indifferently on the other side of Den Den Mushi, but had already gestured to Perospero beside her.
“No need, I just want his whereabouts.”
“You are really heartless.
You were not like this back then.
John appeared in Hachinosu not long ago, and then he went to Paradise.
There are many people in New World who are eyeing him.
As for where he went next, I don’t know.”
Looking at the information Perospero brought over, Big Mom said to Kaido.
As soon as she finished speaking, Kaido disconnected Den Den Mushi.
Looking at the Den Den Mushi in her hand, Charlotte Linlin revealed a displeased look on her face, but she quickly forgot about it when she smelled the aroma of the baked cake.
She is not very interested in Captain John’s treasure, mainly because the investment and profit is not directly proportional.
She can already earn enough from her territory.
John is a member of the Rocks ship after all.
There was no weakling on that ship, and everyone who was able to board the ship has their special skills.
To deal with John, her children are not strong enough, so she has to personally take action, but she is currently busy with birthing children.
Combined with the erratic whereabouts of John, she only knew that John left New World for the first half.
If Kaido finds the other party, she can help if the reward is right, but since Kaido has rejected her, there is no need to take the initiative to join him.
“Okay, it is now confirmed that John is not in the New World but in Paradise.
That woman’s words are still trustworthy.”
Not only Marines were keeping an eye on the movements of those big pirates, other pirates were also doing it.
Some of the pirates indeed go out to sea for adventure or are forced by life, but they are only in a very small number.
And there may also be bas*tards among the Marines, but most people still prefer to believe in Marines than pirates.
Today, when there is no big rare treasure, the pirates who go out to sea do it more for wealth, i.e.
for their own interests.
Leaving after robbing is something that the lowest-level small pirates do.
Big pirates have their own fixed territory.
For the residents in the territory, they will even act as a protective umbrella.
Of course, they will collect protection fees.
They are like another type of feudal lord.
Few people do the stupid thing of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
Rabbits also don’t eat the grass beside their nests, so they don’t rob the residents in their territory, at least the bigger and stronger pirates don’t do that.
Charlotte Linlin belongs to the cruel category among pirates.
According to the normal timeline, Totto Land will use lifespan as rent in the future, but even then, there will still be a large number of ordinary people who would be willing to live in Totto Land.
Ordinary people need protection, and Marines only protect the member nations of the World Government.
For those people outside the member nations who do not have enough strength, it is what they have to do to find a suitable protective umbrella.
They need a safe land to live, and big pirates need that land to support themselves and their subordinates.
In order to prevent others from robbing your territory, of course you must pay attention to the movements of those powerful pirates.
Currently there are countless powerhouses in the sea, and Charlotte Linlin, Golden Lion Shiki, Whitebeard, Captain John, these former members of the Rocks Pirates are undoubtedly the best among them.
The greater the reputation, the more people around the world will be familiar with their personality and hobbies.
For example, Captain John likes treasures and he has been pursuing wealth all his life.
But trouble always finds people with treasures.
At some point, rumors began to appear in the sea that Captain John possessed a lot of treasures, and more and more people began to eye the treasures in his hands.
He wasn’t invincible, there are too many people in New World who can threaten him, so after careful consideration, he decided to return to the first half of the Grand Line, which is the area called Paradise, and hide the treasures first, which is the safest.
“We will enter the Grand Line first, then recruit a group of people, and at the same time gradually inquire about John’s whereabouts.
The range you gave is too vague, so we can only search for it slowly.”
Kaido does not want to completely follow the elite route.
He wants high-end combat power, and he also wants a large number of subordinates.
He was a soldier of the Vodka Kingdom when he was young and knows that numbers are also needed in wars.
But the people in Four Seas were too weak, so he decided to go directly to Grand Line to recruit subordinates.
