Sabo was the child of a noble family in the Gao Kingdom on Dawn Island in the East Blue. His own family treated him as a tool to marry and increase his family's social standing and wealth. Fed up, he ran away to be an orphan in Grey Terminal. His first friend was Ace, and later came Luffy. The three would become closer than any friends and celebrated their brotherhood with three cups of sake.
However, Sabo's father had hired the Bluejam Pirates to force him to return by threatening the lives of Ace and Luffy. Sabo returned to his family home, but discovered not long after that the nobles had planned to burn out all the poor from Grey Terminal with firebombs. He was unable to warn or stop the firebombing, and he didn't know the fate of Ace and Luffy. He still wrote a letter for Ace and had it delivered to Curly Dadan's home.
Longing to finally be free, Sabo set sail on his own, but his boat was shot out of the water by one of the Celestial Dragons in his passing vessel. He was thought to be dead by all who witnessed the attack, but he had been rescued by Monkey D. Dragon, the leader of the Revolutionary Army.
