The truth has now become clear. He had messed up the ritual. It split him into seven different parts, each a different aspect of himself and sealed them into their own frozen time. He had been erased from the timeline in which his crew existed, and the only one who had been trapped in this current time was the lone spear-holding potato, who had been standing guard outside his cabin when the explosion occurred.

While it rendered him immortal technically, he was an incomplete entity. Yet, despite all this, he felt oddly cheerful and optimistic - no matter; he would have time to find the other six pieces and reunite them. After all, he still had his trusty ship, and finding a crew would be fun - meeting new friends would be a wonderful thing.
