Im not so sure about Caribou, he doesnt seem to fill any role from wat we've seen so far. Everyone so far has filled some type of role on the ship.
Zoro the swordsman? Robin the archeologist? Those are not jobs. There basically just crewmates so they can fight. Caribou can fight. Make him the loagiaist of the crew so we can have another madeup title.
First of all, let's get all this idea about members filling a specific role out of your lovely little heads. This is not important in One piece, most of the members that joined aren't single dimension characters. This small crew relies on characters to fill a variety of roles, warranting the situation, not just "you be the fucking cook and that's it".
Honestly, there has been nothing shown so far that makes caribou a likely candidate at all, or sets him apart from any other person in one piece. Even if he is a logia, guess fuck what, there's thousands, maybe, of other people with a logia fruit.
Well, Zoro is the first mate. As for Robin, shes an archeologist so she can find ancient treasure for them.
Wait...how hasnt it been stated that he's the first mate? I'd assume the first person to join your crew would be your first mate. Well anyways back on topic, from where we are currently in the story we haven't really seen enough of Caribou to really say who is and who isn't going to be a part of the crew. I can only go with Jinbei at the moment because to me he seems like the most viable candidate. Now this is just my opinion, not a fact or anything. I'm not Oda after all so I can't really say who the next crew member is going to be.
Ok there is a point in arguing about Caribou.
The way the manga progresses from the beginning we see a dramatic time shift in the way new crew members are gained. It took Luffy maybe 3 chapters to get Zoro and like 50 to get Franky.
So expect Fishman Island to be long. Both Franky and Robin were unlikely candidates for nakama within the first several chapters of their characters being introduced (Both were enemies that willing fought the strawhats).
All it takes for Oda is to put a spin on the story and their reason for joining/being accepted as nakama is totally justified.
I'm not saying that I believe he will in fact join, but never underestimate Odas power of storytelling and that it is a possibility.
So please stop Caribou-bashing.
Seriously, if he leaves his crew to join Luffy, it doesn't say much about him either, he will be like the blackbeard of the crew, I don't think Luffy is going to have a person like that in his crew.
Well I suppose you know something I dont
Well I'm not Caribou bashing but at the moment there just isn't enough information on him since he's a newly introduced character. Now as we progress in the story and learn more about him then maybe i suppose, but have been times in the past where we learn of a person's past and they don't join. We've also had times where we learn their past and they were an enemy to begin with.
I'm simply saying you can't predict with 100% accuracy.
Making claims like "He will never join" are ignorant and baised.
It is still a possibility whether you like it or not. Deal with the facts :P
