Reassemble Marco Pollo's Crew?

Marco Pollo had six crew members other than himself that he gave map pieces to:

Our parents
Catbeard
Argos
Christopher Clark
Egg Foo Yung
Erika the Red

Obviously, we are unable to get Marco Pollo to join our crew, or Christopher Clark, or our parents.

Catbeard everyone gets. Argos you either got, or could get.

But wouldn't it be nice if you could recruit Meriwether Clark, Egg Foo Yung, and Erika the Red?

Perhaps even a distant or close relative of Marco Pollo.

With that crew, going to El Dorado might be an adventure, to recover the crystals that hold the spirits of our parents (how that happened, considering the different ways that our parents died would be interesting).

We also need to figure out why our parents first told us to come to El Dorado, then told us NOT to come.

The re-assembled crew might help enlighten us on that.

Our parents told us not to go to El Dorado because of the giant golden robots that rule the world. Their brains are powerful enough to power Kane, and their hearts are powerful enough fix him. You should have heard all this in Valencia part 2.

Was it really our parents though? It might have been a trick of The Machine.

I'm hoping we make our way to Grizzleheim soon to speak to Erika the Red, and that she has some answers for us. I personally don't think we should try to reassemble the old crew; we have our own crew to take to El Dorado, should we ever go.

1. Merriwether Clark is a scientific nerd with no interest in the adventurous life. Also he has no knowledge of Pollo's expedition or of El Dorado.
2. Egg Fu Yung is the Oyabun of the Yakooza. Why would he leave a job where he calls the shots to join us and take orders like a crew member?
3. We don't know if Erika is alive or dead or even know where she is - or even if she'd be friendly to us. ( Or even still have her piece of the map. )
Blind Mew has indicated that we're not to trust what our parents said in the Great Machine.
Just because those crystals allowed our parents to communicate with us doesn't mean that their spirits are trapped in them.

cant quote 2 people at once, so....

@max degroot. that might be possible, but I doubt we'll recruit merryweather clark. it could be possible, though.

@milo gt. who said pirates listen to their parents? we should be going to el dorado at some point, or we will. we should be having the final showdown there.

The queen of the Amazons joined us.

El Toro joined us, basically abandoning Santo Pollo to the Federales.

Hercules, Son of Zeus, joined us.

If those three can join us, I see no reason why any of the rest would not.

Just because we've recruited all these companions doesn't mean we should be able to recruit all NPCs through the storyline; that would be boring as well as ridiculous!
Usually these important main quest companions join for a specific reason.
So what's their reason?
You want to recruit Merriweather; why? He didn't go to El Dorado, so he's not part of Pollo's crew.
Egg already has a great job being Oyabun, what's in it for him?
I'll reserve comment on Erica, simply because we know nothing about her except name, gender & species.

What final showdown are you talking about, we beat Kane. Did you finish Valencia pt.2?

Kane is not the final enemy of Pirate101 with the current storyline (arc 1). Whatever is in El Dorado is the final enemy for this storyline.

Well, we do know a little more about Erika the Red (see below link). The original storyline intended for us to visit all of Pollo's old crew (those that are still alive).

Erika the Red is still alive:

As far as putting the old band back together again (to the OP), Blind Mew basically said it won't happen:
