Born during the Renaissance, Alonso joined the Spanish Navy, where he served as bosun over a dozen ships, climbing the main mast, leaping from ropes and hanging from the sail in the heaviest of gale winds. However, his tendency toward laziness and insubordination to his superiors earned him a formal discharge. After leaving the navy, Alonso joined Rodrigo de Mendoza's pirate crew and found a kinship with his new captain and lifestyle.
When Rodrigo joined the Brotherhood, Alonso followed suit, hoping for a chance to face off with his former commanding naval officers.
