|“||I am only one man with one heart...Call me a demon, call me a monster...but I can't be the strongest forever...!!!||„|
|~ Edward Newgate|
Whitebeard is one of the members of the Yonko and leader of the Whitebeard Pirates.
Not much is known about Newgate's childhood but his past was knew ever since he gathered and made a crew. He wasn't really interested in finding treasure like the other pirates but one thing he was interested in was making a family. Newgate was Rodger's rival and somehow both of them earned respect after when they made it to Raftle. After Rodger's execution, a man known as Shiki broke out of his cell in Impel Down and met Whitebeard at the ship Moby Dick. However, Newgate threw Shiki out of board when he tried to form an alliance to further his world domination. He became if not the most strongest man on the sea, feared by many people even when saying his name, and was branded by the World Government as a Yonko, as one of the four most strongest pirate.
