The Blackjack Pirates are a group of pirates who are led by Captain Spade D. Jackie, the current crew consists of 4 males and 4 females.The crew has been considered a potential threat to the stability of the world and to the World Government istelf and have been given the title of 3rd of the 8 Dragons.
As a result of a consensus and group vote it is not only the captains choice but also his crews choice in who joins, the Blackjacks are notable for being one of the most personalitly and physically diverse crew. Their ranks have members so vastly different from one another that it almost seems random.These include a former slave that uses a fan in combat,a superhuman powered-muscle man with a very eccentric behavior and a big crybaby at heart, a lively girl that thinks and acts like a wolf,a girl that can speak to animals and a man with 7 hearts. Amongst them they have four Devil Fruit users which includes Jackie himself. The majority of them are also fairly young and in thier teenage years, with only two members being adults in their early twenties. Another thing is that they consider their ships to be crew members as much as the others.
Captain: Spade D. Jackie
Despite only having a small number of members, the Blackjacks are a very powerful and skillful crew. In the eyes of the World Government,they are a dangerous crew and potentially a huge threat to the stability to the world and given the rank of 3 of the 8 Dragons. All of them have at least one talent in which they are virtually perfect at and each crew member is more or less a formidable fighter in their own right. While most of them have amazing strength in one way or another,four of them, the captain, the first-mate, the chef and navigator, have such astonishingly inhuman strength that the rest of the crew have labeled them as the "The Big Four". Each crew member in the beginning has some fairly high fighting abilities, but as they progressed on each crew member has had to become stronger due to each opponent they encounter either being significantly stronger than the last or has required them to develop new skill or techniques to combat new opponents.

The Blackjack Pirates aren't bad people,but because they are pirates and raised the Jolly Roger, they are considered villains by the World Government and the general public who aren't familiar with them. Being viewed as such, they have been given bounties based on how much of a threat the World Government sees them. While this is a hassle and have proven problomatic,like most other pirates, the majority of the crew see their bounties as a form of achievement, a sign of how much fame and recognition their actions have produced.
