History[edit | edit source]
Past[edit | edit source]
During the Gasparde Pirates attack to Elena, Biera saved Adelle Bascùd from drowning when she was drifting downriver. He took her to the Salamander to take care of her, but the ship was seized by Gasparde and his crew. In order to stay alive and protect Adelle, he became one of Gasparde's workers, operating the steamship's boiler.

Dead End Adventure[edit | edit source]
At the start of the movie, he is stricken sick, prompting Anaguma to leave the Salamander to try to help him. He came across Shuraiya Bascùd and learned that Anaguma left to buy medicine for him with pirate bounties, shocked and saddened by the thought of his dear assistant killing someone for his well-being. When Shuraiya told him his past story, Biera realized that Shuraiya and Adelle are connected. As Monkey D. Luffy fought Gasparde, he blew up the boiler on the ship, causing it to sink and was thought dead.
However, Biera managed to survive (by putting lifesavers all over his body), as well as rescue Luffy and Shuraiya after Gasparde's defeat. He then informed Shuraiya that he rescued a little girl from a river eight years ago who could only remember her name: Adelle Bascùd, Shuraiya's sister whom Shuraiya thought was killed when Gasparde's crew destroyed their town. Biera convinced Shuraiya to accept her, despite his brutal life as a bounty hunter, and Shuraiya promised to start a new life for them.
