A O is a very tall man with a long, square shaped face, hollow eyes under prominent eyebrows, dark sideburns that go all the way down to his chin, and greenish long wavy hair. On his head, he wears a yellow and brown striped bandanna and over it is a tricorn captain's hat with what appears to be his Jolly Roger on it, a white skull wearing an animal-like hood. He also wears a dark blue, open shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a ruffled collar, and elaborate earrings made up by three little jewels each on both ears.
Not much is known about A O's personality other than that he is very loyal to Whitebeard since he was willing to risk his own life to save Ace from execution. He was overjoyed when Luffy saved Ace, cheering with his fellow allies.

Abilities and Powers
A O is a fearsome pirate who has managed to make himself an infamous reputation in the New World, becoming Whitebeard's subordinate.
A O carries with him a sword fitting his size, with a long curved blade.
Summit War Saga
A O and his crew, along with a fleet of 42 other infamous pirate crews subordinate to the Whitebeard Pirates, attacked Marineford to save Portgas D. Ace from his execution. Later, he and the other New World pirates allied with Whitebeard Pirates were attacked by the Pacifista army. After Squard stabbed Whitebeard and claimed that Whitebeard sold out his subordinate crews to save Ace, A O began to doubt Whitebeard. After Whitebeard proved his loyalty by giving the pirates an escape route, A O was happy to know the truth and continued fighting the Marines.
After the siege wall was raised and Admiral Akainu melted the ice with his magma powers, A O boarded Whitebeard's hidden ship and entered the plaza with the help of Little Oars Jr. Later, he followed Whitebeard's order in supporting Monkey D. Luffy and rejoiced when Luffy managed to free Ace. However, their excitement was short-lived when Akainu provoked Ace and took his life. When the admiral aimed for Luffy's life, A O and the other pirates made protecting Luffy their top priority.
When the Red Force arrived at Marineford, A O was shocked to see that the Emperor Shanks and his crew were there. After Shanks called for a ceasefire, A O and the other pirates left the battlefield.
After the war, A O and the rest of the allied crew attended Whitebeard and Ace's funeral on an undisclosed island somewhere in the New World.
Concludes non-canon section.
Four Emperors Saga
Two years after Whitebeard's death, A O and his crew got into an argument with Edward Weevil, who had already destroyed 15 other subordinate crews on his path to take out the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates. The fight was caused in part by their claim that the only sons of Whitebeard were his crew, and so Weevil decided to wipe them out in retaliation for their relation to his alleged father. During the fight, the A O Pirates were completely wiped out, with the town being destroyed in the process and A O himself being knocked out as the surrounding area went up in flames.
