Born in a country he never knew. To a father he never saw. Given a name that wasn't his. Of course Barbosa never felt like he belonged. Everywhere he went he was a visitor. Married once, but never again, the children didn't really care. Liked living on the run. His crimes were just accidental opportunities.
