Deep in the space, Oinka is a very peaceful town in Skyland, the floating land in the sky, the only place to live that avoids the polluted lands and seas below. Mateo and his gang's ridiculous pirating practices are the only disturbance. Princes Cutlette, accidentally falls into Mateo gang's house while trying to escape from a villain named Wolfbeard. She has a gold locket that holds the secrets to the kingdom. Mateo and his gang excitedly plan to hold her for ransom. However, allured by Cutlette who wants to give back the locket, they instead start a long journey to find the kingdom's royal treasure...

Snout: A brisk fighter warthog. He thinks that he himself is a good, brave, and tough fighter. His haste to action tends to make things go wrong. Among the gang, he would be the best pirate. He wants to be a pirate in order to make fortune...
Iggy: A crazy-eyed technician. He prefers working on machinery to pirating. He built all their handmade aircrafts and made all their weapons. He has a dream to steer and mend a big pirate ship
Cutlette: A wild princess. She is adventurous and curious. She wants to be an explorer, rather than a good princess.
