Appearance[edit | edit source]
Blenheim is a huge, muscular man who is not much smaller than Whitebeard. He is large enough to carry a normal-sized human on his shoulder. He has a large mouth, small eyes, a downward pointed nose, high cheekbones, and thin, arched eyebrows. He also has dark hair pulled back in a braided ponytail, a gray beard, and chest hair. He wears a gray vest, and has purple tattoos of Whitebeard's Jolly Roger on both of his deltoids, right over two pairs of yellow armbands he wears. He has loose grayish pants tucked inside standard boots.
Twenty-years before the start of the series, Blenheim wore the same kind of outfit but had a black beard.
Thirty-years before the start of the series, Blenheim wore a dark-colored shirt underneath his vest and he had no beard and shorter braided ponytail.

Personality[edit | edit source]
Blenheim is quite loyal to the Whitebeard Pirates and Whitebeard, as he was willing to risk his own life in order to save Ace from execution during the war at Marineford. Compared to some of his more expressive comrades, Blenheim is rather stoic, and he often responds to crises more with anger and frustration than alarm or grief. This was the case when Squard stabbed Whitebeard.
Though he often maintains composure when things go awry, he shows more emotion when things good happen, as seen when he cheered and pumped his arms when Ace was freed. Additionally, he was saddened and upset at his captain's decision to make Marineford his final battle, showing that he more so represses his emotions rather than being less feeling by nature.
Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
As the commander of the 9th division of the Whitebeard Pirates, Blenheim has authority over the lower-ranking subordinates. Physically, Blenheim is quite strong, as he was able to carry a frozen and unconscious Jozu back to the escape ship. Otherwise, his actual fighting skills are yet to be seen.
Weapons[edit | edit source]
Near the start of the battle, Blenheim was seen carrying a huge sword, but his proficiency is unknown. Twenty-years before the series started, during the meeting of Whitebeard and Golden Lion Shiki, he already had this sword.
History[edit | edit source]
Past[edit | edit source]
Four years after Oden joined, the Whitebeard Pirates arrived at an island and noticed a commotion that frightened even the animals. The crew then clashed with the Roger Pirates for three days and three nights before the skirmish ultimately became a gift exchange, where Blenheim toasted with Donquino. Afterwards, the Whitebeard Pirates parted ways with Oden and his family.
Summit War Saga[edit | edit source]
Marineford Arc[edit | edit source]
With one of his crewmates on his shoulder, Blenheim and the rest of the Whitebeard Pirates charging onto the frozen bay Marineford in their attempt to save Portgas D. Ace from execution. Later, when Luffy was confronted by Kizaru, Blenheim and the other Division Commanders helped him push through. Blenheim watched in anger as Squard stabbed Whitebeard in the chest. After Whitebeard forgave Squard and joined the battle himself, Blenheim stood alongside his comrades as they held their weapons to the sky, shouting their affirmation to save their friend.
When Luffy and Galdino freed Ace, Blenheim stood next to Kingdew and Jinbe, cheering for their friend's liberation. Whitebeard decided to that Marineford would be his final battle, and Blenheim and his crewmates listened in shock and grief to their captain's declaration. Blenheim and the others refused to let Whitebeard sacrifice himself, but he demanded that they follow orders and let him. Blenheim was then asked by some other Whitebeard Pirates members to help lift an unconscious and frozen Jozu.
While carrying Jozu to safety, Blenheim witnessed Admiral Akainu impale Ace. He appeared alongside his fellow Whitebeard division commanders to stop Akainu from getting to Luffy. Upon the arrival of Shanks and Sengoku calling the war to a close, he and the rest of Whitebeard's crew stood down.
