Robert was a Lord of Monteria, who grew greedy after his brother, The King, was using The Royal Family's wealth on helping the citizens of Monteria. After failing to take over the throne, he was banished from the country and became a pirate captain and formed himself a large crew to take on the King's Men. Using his knowledge of mechanical technology, he gave himself a body of gears and a keg to try to make himself stronger than the king. He kidnapped his nephew, Alexander, and sent spies to kidnap his niece, Eloise, because he knew how much he and Eloise loved each other, he had created an early version of the mine to blow up the King's ship, however he needed to know when the King was coming back before he can leave them in his secret bay, so he gave Alexander and Eloise two hours to tell him when the King is returning, even if they don't know. After their two hours were up, he came into the dungeons to find The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything trying to escape with his prisoners. Robert threatened to kill Eloise if the don't tell him when the King is returning. But after George cut the rope to the chandelier to knock him over, Robert and his men chased them to the bay where it seem like Robert was going to win, until the King and his men showed up and sunk his ship. When the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything were preparing to go back to their original time, Robert hooked himself to the back of their rowboat where he followed them into the Pieces of Ate and mistakes one of the stage actors, Sir Fredrick, as George and was about to kill him until the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything interfered and dropped another rowboat on him and sent him back to his original time. He was later seen in a cage dancing to "Rock Monster".
