PastEdit

First Riku King Apologizes to Dwarves

King Riku apologizes to the dwarves.

Eight hundred years ago, the Riku Family became the new rulers of Dressrosa Kingdom after the Donquixote Family left the country to live in Mariejois.[2] After learning of the era of slavery that the dwarves had suffered at the hands of the Donquixote Family, the first King Riku made a sincere apology. As atonement for the sins of his predecessors, he allowed them to take anything they needed from the humans as they pleased without having to work for it. King Riku told his citizens that the disappearances were the work of "fairies", beginning a legend that would persist through the centuries. Over the years that followed, the reign of the Riku Family was characterized by their generosity, as they focused their efforts on assisting their neighboring countries whenever possible, despite their own lack of wealth.[3]

During the third Riku Dold's rule, he met with Kyros. At first hostile, Kyros eventually became the captain of Riku's army, and the protector of the two princesses: Scarlett and Viola. Kyros and Scarlett eventually fell in love, but due to the public opinion on Kyros' criminal records, the two cannot marry officially, much to Riku's distraught. To be together, Scarlett faked her death and eloped with Kyros, living on the outskirts of the country with their daughter, while forfeiting her right to the throne to Viola.[4]

Ten years ago, a member of the Donquixote Family, Donquixote Doflamingo, came back to his clan's original kingdom to oust the Riku royalty, and regain the king status. Doflamingo tricked Riku Dold III, the current king of Dressrosa, into gathering Beli10 billion ransom, as that was the only way he would let him keep the island's throne. When Riku started gathering the money, Doflamingo controlled him and his soldiers with his Devil Fruit ability and made him attack his own people. Riku, looking like a tyrant who went mad with greed, had to give up the throne due to that incident and was forced into hiding. That incident caused Riku Dold III to lose all the trust from the people of Dressrosa and they soon started to despise the whole Riku family. Doflamingo was intrigued by the king's daughter's Devil Fruit ability and asked her to join his crew, which she accepted in exchange of securing her father's survival. Scarlett was killed by the Donquixote Family soon afterwards and Kyros (now turned into a toy known as Thunder Soldier) took in Rebecca and raised her.[5]

Dressrosa ArcEdit

At some point in the past, Rebecca was captured by the Donquixote Family and she was forced to fight in the Corrida Colosseum as a gladiator. Despite her strength and the fact that she survived many battles in the Colosseum, she still received a lot of hatred due to her heritage. Rebecca competed for the Mera Mera no Mi as part of the D Block. She was the winner of D Block after surviving Hakuba's assault, and participated in the final round.

Riku Dold III, who was presumed dead, also fought for Ace's fruit under the Alias "Ricky" in Block B. After he lost the fight, he was thrown into an underground dungeon along with the other defeated fighters. There, his true identity was revealed and he received his old subordinates' and allies' praises. Unfortunately, they were all turned into toys soon after, and Riku was taken hostage in Donflamingo's castle.

After Sugar's fainting and her curse lifted, the citizens of Dressrossa finally see Donflamingo for the tyrant he really was. He was then forced to use his "Birdcage" technique to regain control over the country. The citizens, now forced to attack eachother, finally realize what truly happened to King Riku all those years ago and felt utter remorse for believing Donflamingo's trick and how they all betrayed the Riku family.

However, this did not stop them from trying to capture Riku and his family to bring to Donflamingo in order to stop the chaos. But when they actually succeeded, they give up the plan, knowing that it was another lie set up by Donflamingo, as he will not let anyone survive, and beg Riku to stop him.
