Maynard the Pursuer is a vice admiral who appears in the Dressrosa Arc. He was registered as a gladiator to compete at the Corrida Colosseum for the Mera Mera no Mi, but was defeated before he could participate.
Maynard is a muscular, broad-chested man with dark hair tied up in a wild ponytail that sticks out to one side. He also has a dark beard and a mustache.
His outfit is entirely dark-colored and consists of a dark red cap, studded belt, briefs, a studded band on his left thigh which holds a knife, and sandals that reach just below his knees and are studded down the front. Under his cap he has on what appears to be either a mask or sunglasses.
As a Marine, Maynard has a strong sense of justice. Maynard is also pretty modest, as he didn't tell his colleague that he defeated Gambia with ease but instead told him that he simply mistook someone for Gambia.
He is shown to be quite loyal to his fellow comrades reporting to them over how many pirates were competing in the tournament and by trying to hide his affiliation by pretending not to know of any undercover marines
Like his fellow marines he is an enemy to pirates and in his actions against them he shows no remorse towards beating them and leaving their defeated bodies behind as shown with his encounter with Gambia.
He met the pirate while talking to marines he at first nothing of him but when gambia questioned him over anything to do with the navy he saw him as a threat to the mission and had to silence him. After violently beating gambia maynard added insult to his defeat by leaving his unconscious body in the trash room and leaving like nothing happened.
Upon finding out that Maynard was responsible for attacking Gambia, the pirate captain confronted Maynard and told him he couldn't let him go for what he did to Gambia. This forced the vice admiral to have silence him as well. However, things did not go to well as the rookie pirate blocked most of the marine's attacks and seriously injured him. Bartolomeo then properly paid Maynard back by for what happened to Gambia by throwing his defeated unconscious body in trash room and casually walking off.

Maynard carries around a knife on his left leg, held by a band.
While reporting the names of competitors to his colleagues, he was discovered by Gambia. As Gambia questioned Maynard about what he was doing, he told his colleagues that he will call back in ten minutes. After hanging up, the vice admiral defeated Gambia and then unceremoniously left the pirate in the garbage room. While washing his hands, he called back to his colleague and told him to cross Gambia's name out, saying that he was mistaken about him and there was no need to worry.
