How Jozu joined the Tourney
When Shiki dropped by Whitebeard's ship after escaping from Impel Down two years after Gol D. Roger's execution, Jozu was seen in the background, but much thinner and without any armor. Jozu was also seen when Whitebeard declared Fishman Island his territory.
After the murder of Thatch at the hands of Marshall D. Teach, Portgas D. Ace decided to search for Blackbeard and make him pay for what he did. However, Whitebeard, who was feeling uneasy, told Ace not to go, something that Ace did not want to hear. Jozu was one of the crew members who protested to Ace leaving the ship and going after Teach, but this was in vain.
Months after losing the Payback War, Jozu hopes to gain allies in hopes of ending Teach. To do this, he sends an invitation to the second Tourney to Takeshi Yamamoto.
