    Nico Robin and Monkey D. ____________

    *If you don't know who Brooks is, don't read any Further*


    What do the Revolutionary's have to do with the Void Century?
    I can't remember the reason why Kuma sent the SH where he did, but I was really interested in why Robin ended up with Dragon.
    Idk but there was something about the Bridge that was being under construction when she arrived...
    What are your thoughts on Robin's status between the Time Skip and why she was sent to Dragon.

    Oh and I'm catching up on the Anime after wasting time/life watching irrelevant shitpooden.


    Just a question I had...

    Dragon is against the navy and robin is wanted by the navy.
    kuma sent them because he still had a bit of his personality and wanted to help the SH

    Simple question comes to mind.

    Where else could she have been sent?

    Kuma sent them flying to places where he knew they could develop their unique skills well. Kuma being a person who is (or was) part of the revolutionary army must've known that they were gonna go to the bridge place, so he sent her there. And Robin, as previously stated has gained fame for being wanted by the marines since she was young so would be a perfect target of the revolutionary. Well that's what I think anyway

    Re: Nico Robin and Monkey D. ____________

    The corruption in the world stems from the World Government. Ohara paid the sacrifice for learning too much about the Void Century. From what we could tell, they discovered that there was a conflict, after which the WG was originally formed. They also found out the name of the island that housed the writers of the Poneglyphs. I would assume that the void is crucial to the revolution. The discoveries that could be made with the help of Robin could help out the revolution. By having Robin for two years, he could gain access to the poneglyphs she has already seen, not to mention helping her find new ones. Robin gained the insight of Dragon, as well as other information that I'm sure will be crucial down the line, as for seem reason, I think Dragon's plan rests upon Luffy being King.

    Anyways, that's why I think that happened that way.

    Honestly she wasnt really explained. How would she power up with dragon?

    Reasonable:
    Zoro - Mihawk
    Luffy - Reyleigh
    Sanji - Shemales
    Chopper - Medically advanced civilization, and birds
    Nami - Weatheria
    Franky -Robot island
    Usopp - Big bugs and wierd plants

    Unexplained:
    Brook - Enslaved to play music
    Robin - somhow got dragon

    Brook is the bard of the Strawhats. Makes sense his training would be in music, and not in swordsmanship.

    It isn't that simple. I swear there is more, but can't figure it out. That's why I'm asking.

    Re: Nico Robin and Monkey D. ____________

    -well her lifes ambition is to learn about the void century,
    -as stated earlier this is very closely linked with the celestial dragons and how the world government was formed.
    -dragon is a direct enemy of the world government, he would have began the revolution upon stumbling on a reason to do so..if u look at garp (dragons dad), his view of justice isn't the same as the marines...thats why he doesn't give a shit about the higher ups...and i would also think why garp isn't chasing down dragon b'cuz in a way he too see's how corrupt the government are
    -back to the point at hand..both dragon and robin will be able to help each other since only oharan's can read that ancient writing and dragon would have valuable info on the government...as on of the rev. soldiers mentioned they were looking for robin a long time ago but didn't know where she was..and offered her to join buh she'd prefer to stay with luffy since he feels SH are the nakama's that giant was talking about.

    ..in summary they had valuable info to exchange

    Re: Nico Robin and Monkey D. ____________

    The agent who met Robin in Tequila Wolf stated that they had been searching for her during quite a while, but she was in Baroque Works at that time and was nowhere to be found, then after the defeat of Crocodile she disappeared, but as from Enies Lobby they started searching for her again. Kuma probably knew that, and probably also knew that the RA was going to strike on Tequila Wolf (since it represents part of what they are against of: slavery and corruption) so she set her there for that reason.

    Re: Nico Robin and Monkey D. ____________

    When the Revolutionary Army arrived to Tequilla Wolf, they were surprised to see Robin there, nonetheless, they revealed that they had been looking for Robin for quite some years, but were never successful.

    Like someone said before, the Phoneglyphs tell the story of a civilization whose enemies are now know as the World Government. The Revolutionary Army, lead by Dragon, wants to fight that same Government. I don't think that they are simply a group of headless punks that were sad that the government didn't allow them to grafitti the walls. The Revolutionaries know how the Islands that do not belong to the WG feel, and they know of all the corruption that exists. Even though no one (almost no one) knows what happened in the Void Century, everyone with a little bit of intelligence knows that it is something the WG wants to cover up.

    As of now, Robin is the only one who can read the Phoneglymphs, and the only thus the only remaining link to the Void Century. I believe that when Dragon started to look for Robin, he found something of great importance about it. Something that still wasn't revealed, but I'm sure it will be in due time. Likewise, the Revolutionary Army has extremely strong military power and espionage power. Both fit Robin's style very well.
    Also sending her there to see the dark side of the WG even further, where it makes people that are not allied with them into slaves. Maybe as a way to keep her inspired

    That would be why Kuma sent her there. It was not random at all.

    Also I'd like to add:

    Luffy - He was sent to the Island of Women, not to Rayleigh. He was sent there because they are the masters of Haki. Luffy was shown to possess a powerful dormant Haki, and sending him to a place where it would be sure he would experience it in first hand is quite an obvious choice.

    Zoro - Yeah, you are right.

    Nami - Correct

    Usopp - The Boing Archipelago represent a great challenge for Usopp. He needed to man up, gain courage.

    Sanji - Not because of Shemales. It was because of the Martial Arts and the Enhanced Food.

    Chopper - Sort of, ok. It was because Torino Kingdom holds, probably, the most advanced medical and herb knowledge in the world.

    Robin - Said above.

    Franky - , it was because it was the home town of Dr. Vegapunk, of course, the greatest mind alive in the world, one could say the best Inventor there is.

    Brook - Yeah, I don't know either. They were having a satanical ritual, yet I don't know how could Kuma know this. The location where he was sent to was pretty random, unless I am missing something. Though one could say that Kuma knew that in that location, the Long armed tribe and the normal armed tribe were fighting each other. We know that they were doing it because they found the other to be really weird. Who is even weirder? Brook lol. I could say that they were known slave traders, that's why Kuma knew about them.
