omfg guys I just realized something
That “abusa” guy from the latest chapter is Absalom.
Think about it.
The ship seen afterwards is the same ship absalom and hogback escaped on after thriller bark.
Abusa = Absalom

absalom, absalom; four hymns [podfic]
One man cried out, like the king, oh darkness within me.
He did not seek light, but light found him instead.
A star, smaller than his brothers, found him in the dark.
They commanded, and so he burned.
And the darkness in the man was lessened.
