Born during the Spanish Inquisition, Alonso acted as bosun on over a dozen ships, climbing the main mast, leaping from ropes and hanging from the sail in the heaviest of gale winds.
He was once a member of the Spanish Navy, but his tendency toward laziness and insubordination to his superiors earned him a formal discharge. After he left 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.
