Biography
Kerchak was orphaned at an very young age to the point he had little to memory of his biological parents in the West Blue, having survived through whatever means. He soon gained possession of the Reaper-Reaper fruit and ate the devil fruit but was unable to control its incredible ability to absorb souls upon having physical contact with civilians but would use this to his advantage against pirates.

Kerchak was shunned by most civilians due to this and lived a solitary life until at the age of 14, he met another orphan named Taryn at his age. She was one of the few who wasn't afraid of him even having knowledge of his devil fruit powers. Despite his reluctance to have her accompanied him as he believed he would be a danger to her but the girl was still seemingly emotionless and unconcerned about it.

During their travels together, the two formed an unbreakable bond and an obligation to each. They were ambushed an group of pirates that Kerchak killed most of their crew and held Taryn hostage till Kerchak saved her by using his reaper power to transform into his reaper form after losing his left eye that gashed during torture. He saved himself and Taryn from the vengeful pirates after killing them all but the scar on his eye left him emotionally scarred.

His companionship with Taryn helped Kerchak to gain control his devil fruits with his own indomitable will and thus became an fearsome individual in his own right outside of the marines which earned him the recognition from Fleet Admiral Kong.

Around the age of 20, Kerchak and Taryn found two orphaned infant boys named James "Jim" and Calder after dealing with a ferocious pirate raid on a town in the East Blue and took in them as their guardians. He taught the boy outdoor skills as well teaching them to fight and survive. Calder would later say that Taryn taught him where to draw the line, rather than to take a stand.

Kerchak and Taryn joined the Marines at the age 23, soon becoming acquaintance and close friends with two other trainees named Phoebe and Jacks, befriending with then as well. He had encountered Sakazuki on numerous occasions to which these encounters were sorts of chilling at first but the two grew to respect each other despite their different views.

Kerchak was soon promoted sometime after his graduation at the age 25 and during his career, he earned the moniker as "The Reaper" due to his ability to transform into a faceless form similar to the being. He was too well respected by both his peers, subordinates and enemies.

Kerchak has worked on numerous occasions with his close friends during their travels in all of the seas, proving to be a formidable team but their teamwork did had their bumps due to their different personalities and views as they would sometimes bicker among each other.

Kerchak was considered by most of Marines as a "liberal", having zero tolerance for slavery, racial discrimation and senseless killing. He was not above being very harsh yet fair towards his peers and civilians to which Sengoku admired in, considering him to be "Admiral" material though Kerchak refused the position to follow the example of Monkey D. Garp.

Around the age of 27, Kerchak fell deeply in love with his childhood friend but didn't know how to confess his romantic feelings for her and remained silent over it whenever it was brought up by either Kuzan or Jacks. Taryn began to slowly notice this upon seeing his shyness and nervousness whenever he's near her. She decides to give him a chance and the two started spending what quality time they had due to their careers.

Kerchak wanted to spend more personal quality time with her but was unable to due to his work and her becoming a dispatcher in order to stay home and raise the boys. However, the two would talk to one another through transponder snails whenever they had time away from each other.

After mustering up the courage to confess his feelings after the encouragement from Vice Admiral Monkey D. Garp a month later, Kerchak managed confessed his deep feelings for her to which she finally recognized and recorpriatated to this.

The two dated for over three years and married at the age of 32, conceiving and giving birth to a daughter whom they named a Lisbeth. Three years after that, he alongside his wife and child witnessed Jim and Calder's enlistment and affirmation in the Marines.

Kerchak trained his daughter in order to prepare her for the harshness of the world and its danger which she didn't understand as she once became angry enough with his harsh training to lash out at him but this was stopped by both Taryn as well as their friends, Jacks and Phoebe. This accident left Kerchak with a few scars but he was proud of her exceptional strength and ability though Lisbeth became obedient to him and underwent more years of difficult training.

18 years later during the Whitbread War during the time of Portgaz D. Ace's execution, Kerchak witnessed Jim fatally injuries and called out his fellow marines to help but none were able to respond as the effects of the war drove the marines in a bloodthirsty rage towards the retreating pirates. Jim soon died after the war, leaving Kerchak and Taryn to silently grieve.

After his funeral months laters, Kerchak and Taryn were visited by Sengoku who came to give his condolences for their loss but Ketchak reprimanded his superior for letting Blackbeard join the Seven Warlords and his obliviousness did not seeing the pirate's true intentions before the war began. This caused Lisbeth to turn towards the life of privacy as she viewed the Marines as "birds in a cage" due to the government's control over them.

Despite the protest of his peers, Kerchak and Taryn willing let their daughter sail off on her own to find a place she felt she truly belong but before her departure, he apologized to Lisbeth for everything and regretted what he did, telling her to treat the government as her enemy and promised that he and her mother would always be at their side. He begged her to come home, something she understood to mean that she could abandon her adventure if she felt it necessary -- something she believed was not an option.
