Attach, commonly nicknamed Attachan, is a prolific photographer who once headed the Marines' Photography Department. Though he supplied images of many prominent outlaws - including most of the Straw Hat Pirates - for the Marines' wanted posters, his frequent blunders eventually led to his dismissal. Subsequently, he became a reporter for the World Economic Journal, under "Big News" Morgans.[3]

Like Minatomo, Attach began as an SBS joke Eiichiro Oda used to "explain" a triviality - namely, how the Marines always had such high-quality illustrations of the world's most dangerous and/or unreachable criminals.[2] In time, however, he became a fully canon character, with minor but tangible impact on the story.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Based on a shadowy appearance, Attach is a short and somewhat elderly man with a grayish-brown mustache. He wears a shirt with green-and-white checkered design with white sleeves, black pants, and a white top hat.[1]

After the timeskip, he remained relatively unchanged except that he now wears an armband on his right arm with the words "WE" on it, which likely stand for "World Economic".[3]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about Attach's personality. He did seem surprised when his boss told him the lens cap was on during Sanji's picture, so he might be confident in his skills of photography. However, it is later revealed that he did indeed leave the lens cap on accidentally, as he was eventually fired for doing so fifty-seven times. Therefore, it can be concluded that he does not pay enough attention while working and that he is a careless person.

Flaming Attachan apparently received his epithet due to the fact that before he closes the shutter, he yells "Fire!".[2]

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

According to Oda, Attach is a very skilled infiltrator, able to sneak "anywhere he likes" and photograph (almost) anyone he wants. It is unknown if he possesses any combat ability, or even any weapons.

History[edit | edit source]

Past[edit | edit source]

Precisely when - or for how long - Attach joined the Marines is unknown, though it is known that he eventually became chief (部長 buchō?) of the entire Marine Photography Department (海軍写真部 Kaigun Shashin-bu?).

Water 7 Saga[edit | edit source]

Attach was present for the Straw Hat Pirates' attack on Enies Lobby, and - despite the considerable chaos - successfully photographed Sogeking, Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, and Franky. However, his attempts to photograph Sanji were thwarted by numerous mishaps, culminating in a "successful" shot where he realized too late that he had forgotten to remove the lens-cap.[4]

Post Enies Lobby Arc[edit | edit source]

After the fall of Enies Lobby, Attach followed the Straw Hats and their allies back to Water 7. Finding the whole city hailing the Straw Hats as heroes, he was able to trick Nami into posing for a photograph by claiming to be a reporter for a local newspaper.[5] Within a week, he reported back to his superiors with the new photographs, but was forced to submit a blank for Sanji.[1]

This led to the Marines using a crude facial composite for Sanji's wanted poster - a situation that greatly displeased Sanji, but ironically protected him for a time, as it led to his birth family being stymied by false leads such as Duval.[6]

Yonko Saga[edit | edit source]

Some time after the Battle of Marineford, Attach was dismissed by the Marines for his fifty-seventh instance of forgetting to remove his camera's lens-cap.[7] Afterwards, he was recruited by the World Economic Journal, under the command of "Big News" Morgans.[3]

Levely Arc[edit | edit source]

At the Red Port prior to the Levely, Attach was seen working directly under Morgans and helping to cover the arrival of the royal families from across the world and taking photos of the Mermaid Princess, Shirahoshi. He asked his boss, Morgans, if they should do a story on the princess but the latter was too enthralled by Shirahoshi's beauty to respond.[3]

Wano Country Arc[edit | edit source]

While Morgans was ordering his employees around on how to format the front page scoop, a person who was appeared to be Attach alerted Morgans of a letter from the World Government. When Morgans discovered that it was hush money to keep a certain incident under wraps, he ordered Attach to send it back. At this moment, the man that had appeared to be Attach ripped off his face mask and pointed a gun at Morgans, revealing himself as a member of Cipher Pol. After the agent was easily knocked out by Morgans, a tied and gagged Attach was present at the headquarters before it departed the scene.[8]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sanji's photograph error wherein Attach left the cap on is a well known mistake that both professional and amateur photographers make alike.
