Alkymyst wandered ashore on Sakejima Island in the Viridian Ocean on the 1st of November 2005. He was not impressed by the pink colour of Sakejima Navy's clothing, so he moved his home to Dragon's Nest, where he quickly rose to the rank of admiral, and was often seen proudly wearing his lime green navy uniform.
Testing the ocean, he jobbed with several crews. Liking Rolling Thunder the most, he joined as a cabin person. He eventually achieved the 5 piracy masters required to become an officer in Rolling Thunder, and rose through the ranks upto senior officer. Where upon he was invited to join Sputty, Shadowss and Pandalink as a co-captain of the crew, and was given access to Lightning, the figurehead captain of Rolling Thunder.
When Alkymyst decided to memorize the Viridian Ocean, he discovered that being a co-captain of the largest crew on Viridian was too distracting. So, he left Rolling Thunder and founded his own small crew, Crucible. He fully intended to return to RT once he'd memorized the 282 ocean league points. When he'd completed the task on the 7th September 2006, RT had left it's flag and was conducting the Rolling Thunder Experiment, which involved RT senior officers forming their own crews and joining their own exclusive flag, Tempest. Alkymyst's crew did likewise, and he became a prince of the flag. A year later RT left Tempest and joined Sea Change. Alkymyst then became king of Tempest.
Alkymyst had been sunk over 100 times and was beginning to think he was invincible. Then on 20th April 2007 came the Sinky Sinky event. Just too many sinkings at one time for Alky. He staggered ashore minus a leg. Just 6 months later in October 2007 and another 100 sinkings the Atlantean sea monsters took his hand. The rot had set in now, and after just another month and only another 45 sinkings, in November 2007 Alky lost an eye. So far his blue starfish repellent seems to be working, over a 100 sinkings in Atlantis and no sign of the pesky creatures. Oh well, spoke too soon. 23rd August 2010. After a "Nelson" of sinkings in Atlantis, 111, they got him.
