Bakkin is a short, elderly woman with blonde hair. On her shirt, she sports a skull symbol that is similar to the Whitebeard Pirates' jolly roger, except that it has pigtails and no crossbones. She wears a green hat, a pair of sunglasses and a leopard-print vest.
|— Bakkin reprimands her son for desiring revenge against Blackbeard.|
Claiming herself to be Whitebeard's lover, she believes that she and her son have the right to inherit Whitebeard's fortune. She seems to be quite greedy and manipulative, believing that money is what matters in the world, and swaying her son to follow her plans rather than his own for her alleged lover's "fortune". She also finds revenge unnecessary, because there is no money to be gained from it.
Bakkin is highly deluded and blinded by her greed, chasing down the former Whitebeard Pirates in search of an inheritance. However, Marco confirmed that Whitebeard's share of any treasure always went back to his home town, while the rest was given to the crew.
Bakkin believes that the Whitebeard Pirates are a "make-believing family". She and Weevil are hunting the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates and need to find the 1st division Commander Marco to claim Whitebeard's "fortune". She is unaware that Whitebeard left them nothing.
Monkey D. Luffy
Bakkin was somewhat acquainted with Whitebeard, having been a fellow crewmember with him approximately 40 years ago. While the extent of their relationship is unknown, Bakkin claimed to be the woman that Whitebeard loved the most.
Four Emperors Saga
After her son, Edward Weevil, decimated A O's crew, Bakkin told Weevil that they must find Marco in order to acquire the late Whitebeard's fortune. When Weevil suggested hunting Blackbeard instead, she quickly scolded him for wanting revenge. She received a newspaper from a News Coo and was shocked by Donquixote Doflamingo's defeat at the hands of Monkey D. Luffy. Knowing about Luffy's connection to the Whitebeard Pirates, Bakkin decided to search for Luffy, hoping that he would have information on Marco.
Wano Country Arc
After the Seven Warlords of the Sea system was abolished, Bakkin and Weevil found themselves confronted by the Marines. Seeing that they were no longer allies, Bakkin gave Weevil permission to fight them.
