The Taika Pirates (aka. Expert Pirates or Professional Pirates) is a pirate crew coming from Daisy Bay Island, North Blue. This crew is an adaptation of Halo_Capella's group of protagonists from sykactor, called The Taika Team. The name is formed from the captain, Darcy Taika, who took her last name to the crew title. This crew is known by their violent acts, criminal behavior and threat to the government.

Crew Population 8 nakama
Total Bounty 653,029,550 Beli

Crew Theme Edit

Since the Jolly Roger consists a skull wearing sunshades, bow-tie and white collar with a rifle and blade crossing behind it; the crew are generally fulled with professional experts. This includes Darcy's surname, Taika is a Japanese translation to the word, "expert". Also, it derives from the captain's occupation, an agent collaborating with an assassin which is another kind of agent. Of course, not all the members may match the theme but this is because of the captain and the first mate.

Animal Resemblance Edit

Even though the characters weren't based as animal theme (unlike what Eiichiro Oda did) when they were first made, especially at their original creation. They can quite match an animal. These includes future members: Halo is an Orca (I guess looks...), Athena is a Butterfly (Devil Fruit), Darcy is a Swallow (Sign of Trust), Kaira is an Ostrich (Long Legs?), Shjaa is a Moose (Brown and Calm?), Charlie can be a Rhino, Ruby is a Firefly (Fire!) and Onisuke can be a Tasmanian Devil.

Crew Members Edit

The crew only reveals four members, the others are soon to be revealed. All their bounties totals up to 470,000,000 Beli.

Crew Strength Edit

The Taika Pirates are more proficient in any situation rather having greater strength. Here are their professions and capabilities:

  • Darcy: Agent: good navigational skills, charismatic skills, superhuman strength, Tsuki Tsuki no Mi, Tenshi no Nou
  • Kaira: Assassin: excellent assassination skills, Rokushiki, Rokugenken master
  • Halo: Artist: high level story-writer and artist, Gunpen master
  • Athena: Insect-watcher: excellent insect knowledge, butterfly charisma and communication, Mushi Mushi no Mi, Model: Butterfly
  • Charlie: Bodyguard: high level boxing skills, internal kairoseki traits, incredible superhuman strength
  • Ruby: Chemist: good kung fu, excellent chemistry skills, Honzouryouku master
  • Onisuke: Samurai: kenjutsu, mixed martial arts, Oniyakujou master
  • Shjaa: General: logistic skills, good gun-crafting skills, shooting skills, Sori Sori no Mi

This is like a Rock-Paper-Scissor advantage and their potential must be taken care through good strategy and tactics.

Douriki: Since Kaira's is somewhat measured, she has an opinion of other nakama's douriki. Darcy has 2100, Kaira has 1150, Halo has 50, Athena has 90, Charlie has 850, Ruby has 260, Onisuke has 666 and Shjaa has 429.

Goals Edit

Other than their individual goals, the crew-wide goal is unrevealed. This is because the captain's goals are unrevealed.

Darcy: unrevealed.
Kaira: To put an end to the World Government.
Halogen: To make a manga series of his adventure in the Grand Line.
Athena: To find the most beautiful butterfly in the world.

The Taika Explorer Edit

aka. The Expert Explorer. The ship of the Taika Team. A form of a xebec-cutter combination made out of a wooden hull and a steel frame. This ship carries the best sails in the world, not for their speed but for their greatest maneuverability. It uses the rare Eve's Linen, an invulnerable material that much better than any modern fiber. The wooden-steel material of the boat are only general. The boat has been passed down through the generations of the Taika family, due to it's battle scars and patches. The one thing that must be known about this boat, is that it possesses no cannons.

Trivia Edit

  • The Taika Pirates is technically the Taika Team, the fictional agent group from the future manga series sykactor, envisioned by the user, Halo Capella.
  • It is possible that these characters can be involved in one of the fanon storylines, since they don't have their own so far.
