Scorpion was a bounty hunter who lives in Alabasta after retiring there to raise his two sons, Chip and Dip. After hearing them wishing for a better life, he tries to capture Portgas D. Ace (after luring him there with rumors that he had beat Blackbeard). He fights with Ace, using a bazooka that can shoot a steel net, a high pressure acid gun (changed to water in the 4Kids dub), and a purple polka-dotted bomb that can blow up a mountain. When a landslide is about to crush him and his boys, Ace saves him with his Fire Fist technique and he goes back to raising his sons, after telling Ace about Blackbeard's last whereabouts. He also has an ostrich that he rides around.
He has a 1000000 beri bounty.
