History: Born in the port of Campeche, New Spain, son of a cartographer and his local mistress. The woman died when giving birth to a second child, and Nardo was raised by a slave. He was sent to school and, when not studying, he was helping his father in his office. But the sailing masters and ship captains who came in the office, talking about Spain and Manila and other places, made him to wish for more. With his connections, the man succeeded to send his son to sea at the age of taking a proper apprenticeship. He got to be a master's mate aboard "San Alfonso", one of the treasure ships in the convoy sent to Spain in March 1720.
The ship was captured by the pirates, and Nardo joined Sol Picador's crew. After the losing of the Rising Sun and the battle with the two Navy flagships, leading to sinking all the ships, Nardo had been among the ones captured by Le Phenix. He got saved in the last minute from the capsizing ship, together with Baptiste and Marc Lafont, and they got washed up on Bequia, an islet in the Grenadines. Finally saved by a ship, they returned to Tortuga.
Anything else: brought by Elena for the Spanish treasure plot and other plots
