With the Marines starting to close in from behind, Kid and Law, despite their mutual dislike of each other, tell Kuma they are leaving and prepare to face him. After giving back Camie's backpack, they depart promising to aid them 'till they leave the island. As they do so, they talk with Rayleigh where he reveals his relation to Gol D.
Roger, much to their surprise Hachi apparently knew this too, but did not tell them since they just needed a coater. Rayleigh also reveals how he met Hachi the Fish-Man had saved Rayleigh's life when he was a kid, and they had remained friends 'till Hachi joined Arlong's crew, then named the Sun Pirates.
Sanji then questions how he could still be alive if Roger's crew was captured, to which Rayleigh reveals that Roger actually turned himself in. The government just made it seem that way to show their strength to the public.
Rayleigh goes on to tell them the reason why. It was because four years before he was executed, Roger was diagnosed with an incurable disease. His crew, however, had come across Crocus at the entrance of the Grand Line and asked him to join them on Roger's final journey to keep his disease in check.
Finally, after three years, they had managed to conquer the Grand Line.

This surprises the Straw Hats, Brook especially, since Crocus did reveal to them he was a pirate doctor for a time. Rayleigh even tells them that the reason Crocus joined was to find a certain pirate crew, which the Straw Hats figure must have been the Rumbar Pirates, bringing tears to Brook's eyes sockets.
Rayleigh continues, stating that after they conquered the sea, Roger was dubbed the Pirate King. However, the title was meaningless since he was about to die.
But Roger enjoyed it anyway, as he was a man who loved doing everything in grand style. Eventually, Roger disbanded his crew who silently went their separate ways, fates unknown. One year later, Roger turned himself in to the Marines who decided to make a public execution of him to throw fear into pirates around the world. However, Roger had other plans; his last words to Rayleigh being "I ain't gonna die, partner". On the fateful day of his execution, Roger made his famous speech to the world which, in turn, created the current age of piracy.
The Straw Hats are astonished by the story. Rayleigh then tells the group about Shanks and Buggy's apprenticeship aboard Roger's ship, the former of which ran into Rayleigh ten years earlier and told Rayleigh about Luffyclaiming that he had met a kid that said the same things as their captain did. The story suddenly shifts to a harbor at Grove 27, where a pirate crew is about to set off.
Before they can do so, they spot a ship on the horizon that suddenly fires a cannonball with a person actually standing on top of it. The ball lands in the harbor amidst the pirates and the figure, revealed to be Kizaru, awaits orders from his Den Den Mushi.
Rayleigh is extremely powerful, easily one of the strongest characters introduced. Shakuyaku vouches for his strength by saying that he is " times stronger than all of you boys", referring to the Eleven Supernovas. Garp reasoned that the Marines should not confront two legends, Whitebeard and Rayleigh at the same time. Admiral Kizaru even admitted that if the Marines were to make an honest attempt at capturing Rayleigh, they would need to do serious preparation, further explaining his great strength.
However, Rayleigh himself has admitted that he is not as young as he used to be, and can tire in battle. Jinbea former Shichibukai who was used to seeing Whitebeard, was later shocked to see Rayleigh in person.
Eustass Kid himself even states that Rayleigh was "a legend". Another glimpse of his strength is seen when he seemingly snatches off Camie's exploding slave collar and tosses it into the air before it could self destruct.
Rayleigh is well known for his crafty and cunning mentality: Calm and level-headed at virtually all times, he was the individual to break up arguments and disputes aboard the "Oro Jackson", as first mate and the right-hand man to Gol D.

Rayleigh knows the "True History" of the world from his time with Roger. However, he has also stated that, as a pirate crew lacking the archaeological knowledge of scholars of Ohara's caliber, they could have interpreted that information differently than the Ohara scholars.
This is shown when he was within a matter of moments easily able to deduce what had happened after ending up at the slave auction stage on the Sabaody Archipelago. Mechanics Edit Rayleigh is an expert in the coating business, as he performs such operations for various pirate ships heading down to Fish-Man Island, as well as understanding the mechanics of the deep-sea currents.Strawhat Pirates meets Silvers Rayleigh
Rayleigh is also highly knowledgeable in locksmithing, able to remove the slave collars that was placed on him and the giant he was enslaved with without using any keys at all. He also demonstrated being able to remove Camie's exploding collar without the keys, albeit in a more dangerous method as it does not stop the collar from exploding.
