Blondie is a large, round man with black circles around his eyes and some stubble around his chin. He has what appears to be a small pet lion on his head, right over his pirate captain's hat (a tricorne), which has a Jolly Roger with a lion-like mane on it. He wears a standard pirate captain's coat draped over his shoulders like a cape, and striped shirt.
Blondie highly values loyalty, since he was willing to answer the call of Whitebeard to put his own life on the line to save Ace. Furthermore, Blondie always retains a rather playful appearance, smiling and carrying his pet lion on his head even during battle. He was horrified at the accusation against Whitebeard had sold them to the Marines.
Abilities and Powers
Blondie is a fearsome pirate who has managed to make himself an infamous reputation in the New World, becoming a subordinate of Whitebeard.
He was seen wielding two bizarre swords both having the shape of a double sickle. Their overall shape resembles that of a khopesh. It is assumed that he's proficient at using them though how skilled he is with his swords is not known.
Some time prior to the current storyline Blondie became a known pirate in the New World, and he and his crew became subordinate to Whitebeard. A lion puppy grew fond of Blondie and since then he always takes him away on his head.
Summit War Saga
When Portgas D. Ace was to be executed at Marineford, Blondie and his crew joined forces with the Whitebeard Pirates to save him. He was first seen shouting Luffy on. Later he is seen attacking the Marines out of the bay with his fellow allies, and later managed to enter it. After Squard stabbed Whitebeard and claimed that the Emperor sold out his allies to save Ace, Blondie began to doubt Whitebeard.
At the end of the war, the Red Hair Pirates arrived and Sengoku allowed the surviving pirates to leave.
He, along with the rest of the crew, attended Whitebeard's and Ace's funeral on an undisclosed island somewhere in the New World.
