Benn Beckman[5] is the first mate and an officer of the Red Hair Pirates.[6][7]

AppearanceEdit

Beckman is a tall man, standing at a height of 206 cm.[3] Twelve years ago in Monkey D. Luffy's hometown, his hair was long, light brown (black in the anime) and pulled back in a pony tail.[1] In the current storyline, his hair is now gray, medium-length, and slicked-back. He also now has a large, X-shaped scar on his left temple.[8] He is never seen without his rifle nearby or a cigarette in his mouth.[1]

His outfit has changed very little over the years since his first appearance; he now wears a black, v-neck shirt with three quarter sleeves (whereas he is previously seen wearing a short-sleeved shirt of a similar color and design) along with loose pants (originally of a dark green color, but presently gray) with numerous pockets on them, tucked inside his buckled boots. Like most of the other Red Hair Pirates, he wears a sash around his waist, to which he attaches his rifle in a pistol-like fashion. The only thing added to his attire is his spiral-patterned cloak.[8]

PersonalityEdit

Beckman appears to be a lot less fun-loving and a lot more relaxed than the other members of the crew are, acting as the level-headed member. He, Lucky Roux, and Yasopp are some of Shanks's most trusted crew members, as they are always seen when the Red Hair Pirates are featured, usually when something crucial happens.[1]

At times, Beckman seems amused at the actions of his captain, such as panicking when Luffy is taken[9] or getting even more drunk when he has already drunk a lot before and when Mihawk brings the news of Luffy's first bounty.[10] He is the first to speak out among the crew whenever they appear. He also seems to be the first to ask questions about the crew's situation, such as whether the World Government would try to stop them from seeing Whitebeard.[8]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As an Emperor's first mate,[6][7] Beckman can be assumed to hold significant combat ability.

Twelve years ago, Beckman single-handedly defeated Higuma's crew of mountain bandits using only a cigarette and his rifle as a club.[11]

At the end of the Battle of Marineford, Marine Admiral Kizaru chose not to engage with Beckman when the latter had him held at gunpoint, even though Kizaru had fought Marco earlier and even Whitebeard himself.[12] Though given pause and putting his hands up in seeming surrender, Kizaru did shortly thereafter continue what Beckman sought to prevent him from doing (trying to assail Luffy), suggesting Kizaru had not truly been cowed by Beckman's presence.[13]

A highly intelligent man, Beckman has the highest IQ of any character introduced in the East Blue Saga (above the master strategist Kuro's).[14]

Demonstrating some stealth prowess, when the Red Hair Pirates arrived at Marineford to stop the war, Beckman was able to climb up and sit on a Marine ship's mast to point his flintlock at a nearby Kizaru, a Kenbunshoku Haki user, without the latter noticing until Beckman made his presence known.[12]

WeaponsEdit

Beckman carries a flintlock rifle with him, but he has yet to be seen firing it, instead having used it as a club on Higuma's men twelve years ago[11] and as a threat against Kizaru.[12]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

He is originally from the North Blue.[3] How Beckman came to be a member of the Red Hair Pirates is unknown.

Romance DawnEdit

Red Hair Pirates at Foosha Village

The Red Hair Pirates in Foosha Village.

In Foosha Village, Beckman tried to explain Shanks's decision on refusing to take Monkey D. Luffy with him to sea. Unfortunately, he found that his captain left him in somewhat of an awkward situation, since he seemed to enjoy mocking the fact that Luffy could not swim, leaving Beckman to explain that Shanks really was not that happy all the time.[15] Later on, after the Higuma incident, Beckman and Lucky Roux took on Higuma's men. He shocked Higuma by taking out every last bandit, leaving only Higuma standing.[11]

East Blue SagaEdit

Loguetown ArcEdit

When Dracule Mihawk informed the crew about the up-and-coming Luffy, Beckman was surprised at this fact. With his crew, they celebrated and invited the Warlord to the party despite Shanks and his crew already being worn out from another party the night before.[10]

Sky Island SagaEdit

Jaya ArcEdit

After Shanks's call with Rockstar, Beckman asked Shanks how he thought the government would react to him wanting to meet Whitebeard.[8]

Beckman accompanied Shanks when he visited Whitebeard, and later watched unfazed while Shanks and Whitebeard clashed.[16]

Summit War SagaEdit

Prelude to the Whitebeard WarEdit

Since Vice Admiral Momonga mentioned that the Red Hair Pirates had intercepted Kaido, it can be assumed that Beckman helped in this interception.[17]

Marineford ArcEdit

Benn Beckman Stops Kizaru

During the Battle of Marineford, Beckman prevented Admiral Kizaru from attacking Luffy and Trafalgar Law, telling Kizaru not to move a muscle while aiming his gun at him.[12] Later, the Red Hair Pirates left the battlefield peacefully, taking Ace's and Whitebeard's bodies with them.[18]

Post-War ArcEdit

Beckman later attended Ace and Whitebeard's funeral somewhere in the New World.[19]

TriviaEdit

  • Beckman's favorite food is kamaboko.[3]
