Law first encountered Monkey D. Luffy in the Human Auctioning House where the latter gained his attention after striking down a Celestial Dragon in front of everyone. Law, like Kid, could only smile at Luffy’s defiance of the consequences. He seems to have some respect for Luffy, as shown after defeating the Marines outside the Human Auction House.
Also, he and his crew traveled to Marineford during the Battle of Marineford to assist with Luffy’s escape, and then later administered medical treatment to him. As he said, while Luffy would one day be his enemy, an enemy relationship is still a relationship and that it would be a “damn shame” for Luffy to die at Marineford.
Born in Loguetown, Roger was famed as the man who did what no one thought possible – conquering the Grand Line. It would seem that he had been around for some time, considering that Brook refers to him as a rookie, more than 50 years before the current storyline.
Before he formed his crew, he met Silvers Rayleigh, a young man who was living on a ship he had stolen after his house had burnt down. Roger said that it was a fated meeting and asked Rayleigh to join him. And that is how it all started.
Usopp is the son of Yasopp, a pirate who joined “Red-Haired” Shanks’ crew and sailed away, leaving behind his wife and son. Usopp began to lie that pirates were coming.
He first began this practice when he started yelling to his mother that pirates were coming in the hopes that it would strengthen her spirits enough to keep her alive. After his mother died, he just continued to do so because of the pain of having lost both parents one way or another, leaving himself alone.
Pedro shows the rest of the Sanji retrieval team the newspaper that explains the destruction of Baltigo. Nami and Brookare shocked to learn about Sabo and Nami questions Luffy about why are all of his siblings are such dangerous people. Meanwhile, Luffy is comically surprised looking at his father and states that his father does not resemble him at all. Brook is even more surprised at the fact that Dragon is Luffy’s father.
Luffy however, is more curious about Sabo’s fate. Reading the newspaper reveals that the Marines and the Cipher Polwere intimated by an unidentified individual but by the time they arrived at the scene the Blackbeard Pirates had destroyed the place. Luffy is enraged remembering Blackbeard’s actions while Nami is confused why the Blackbeards would do such a thing. Luffy speculates that Sabo’s fight with Burgess might have something to do with the attack. The fate of the revolutionaries seems to be at large as there is not much information with respect to what happened to them.
As an okama stereotype, Iva is an effeminate cross dressing man. He also has a tendency to put “buru” at the end of a sentence as well as pronounce “watashi” and “anata” with a v (vatashi and vanata). He also tends to sometimes proclaim the exact opposite of a statement he has just said, with people believing this is his sense of humor (such as saying that he would not mind being called “Crap”, before hastily announcing that he would not be referred to as such). He is noted for not being picky on what Japanese honorific someone can use when addressing him.
Being one who follows the way of the Okama, Iva seems to value friendship and bonds above all else. He seems to find great motivation at helping both friends and subordinates, and is ready to put his life on the line for their sake, as seen when he flew into a rage against Kuma when the latter attacked his “candies”.
Wanda is unprejudiced, as she stated that she judges others by what is on the inside rather than what is on the outside. She is helpful to strangers, as she tried to assist the Straw Hat Pirates by giving them directions on Zou and protectedLuffy from the guardians of the Whale Forest.
She sometimes says things without thinking about the context, as when she referred to Brook as a corpse the Straw Hat Pirates thought she was talking about their crewmates’ dead bodies. Similar to a dog, she has a habit of licking others on the face, as seen when she licked Luffy’s face. Also, she finds Brook to be delicious, since his body is bones.
The Pirate King Gol D. Roger was executed. However, before his death he revealed to everyone that his treasure, the One Piece, was hidden at the end of the Grand Line. This inspired people to become pirates and sail toward the treasure, beginning the Great Age of Pirates. Twelve years later, a young boy named Monkey D. Luffy dreamed of finding the One Piece, but lost the ability to swim after eating a Devil Fruit giving him the ability to stretch his body like rubber.
He was given a straw hat by the pirate Shanks, who would later go on to become a Yonko, one of the four most powerful pirates in the world, on the agreement that he would return the hat once he became a pirate and surpassed Shanks.
Both Nami and Chopper hop across the buildings to where each respective crewmate is. While Chopper tries to pull Zoro out of the chimney, handing Zoro his sword upon request, Nami yells to Luffy that Robin gave up her life so that they could escape the government’s wrath. Luffy then pushes the buildings he was stuck between apart and Zoro slices in half the building whose chimney he was stuck in just as the first wave of Aqua Laguna crashes towards them.
They just barely manage to reach higher ground only to underestimate the strength of the waves and are engulfed. Thankfully, Paulie was close by and manages to pull them up, but it’s still not over as they have to quickly reach even higher ground before they are caught again. They succeed and the two crewmates are told about the situation.
When he finds Vivi, he shot the Millions who were after her in his Devil Fruit form and takes her to a safe place on a nearby rooftop. He proceeds to finish off the Baroque Works agents. At this moment, Miss All-Sunday, aka Nico Robin, appears on the same rooftop as Vivi. Pell discusses with Miss All Sunday about the fate of Igaram (whom Robin had pretended to have killed, although Pell believed his death to be true).
Miss All Sunday then enrages Pell by pretending to pierce through Vivi’s body with her hand. However it was the use of her Devil Fruit power (making a hand appear on the back of Vivi’s body while her actual hand only punched her). A furious Pell attacks her, but is easily defeated by her Devil Fruit ability.
The Whitebeard Pirates were formerly one of the strongest pirate crews in theworld, as their captain Whitebeard was the only pirate to have ever been a match for the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, in a fight. Whitebeard’s crew is segmented into divisions, instead of all under their captain’s direct command.
Following the deaths of Whitebeard and Ace, the remaining members of the crew engaged the Blackbeard Pirates in the Payback War, which ended with the Blackbeard’s brutally defeating them, followed by conquering their former territories, with their captain usurping Whitebeard’s position in the Yonko. As a result, the crew has lost most of its power and influence.
