Straight to the point >>> What do you guys think about Shiki being the lurking legend Oda mentioned? I may be wrong, but there was a chapter in OP which i pretty much think it was declared cannon but not taking part within the main story and in that chapter we saw a little of the history between Roger and Shiki, aswell as Shiki's capture and escape and whatnot. For those of you that remember that chapter (Chapter 0), you should remember it ending with Shiki hiding in some wild island with lots of giant animals and talking with (i guess) someone along his crewmembers that pretty much seems to be a scientist of some sort judging by the words he said. They were plotting something big that could only be achieved in 20 years time, therefore Shiki's decision to go into hiding until those whatever preparations are done. Now, I am really not well acquainted with the ages of the OP characters so perhaps someone more knowledgeable of this subject could confirm whether the possibility of Shiki being the Lurking legend is true according to the timelines and the matching of the years that have passed since then, etc. Second, just for the beauty of speculating, what do you think about the island that Shiki took refuge on? Could it be some important place? How about that guy he was talking with? Does Vegapunk come in mind when seeing him? There are a lot of possible scenarios that could fit the story.
