The Checkmate Pirates (チェックメイト 海賊団, Chekkumeito Kaizokudan) are a recently formed rookie group of pirates originating from East Blue, though not every member of the crew comes from the same location. As referenced by the name, the crew's structure revolves around chess pieces, with each nakama being assigned a chess piece title by the captain. This is little more than arbitrary whim, as the piece titles tend to say little about the character's abilities or prowess (though the crew agrees that they are fairly appropriate.) This has also limited the number of members available to the crew, but the captain is very happy with the current state of affairs and does not wish to change them.
