Personality

Breed has a distaste for humans, calling them foul and disgusting. He demands complete loyalty from his "pets". He also seems to have no respect for the welfare of the animals he controls and merely uses them as an army, seeing them as nothing more than pawns. However, if he perceives an animal as cute, he will grow attached to it, though still not caring about its feelings and only viewing it as some sort of dress up doll. Indeed, he also seems to have strange taste when it comes to dressing up his cute pets; his preferred style involves pink frills, ribbons, laces, and overall extremely feminine fashion choices. If his object of affection provokes or hurts him, though, he will resort to violence. Breed seems to have some slight humility, as he admits that Luffy and Law are stronger than him.

Breed also does not believe in friendship, and believes that the best crew to have should be loyal and obedient without question or regard for their wellbeing. This belief extends to how selfish he treated his old crew, whom he never cared for nor tried to understand the people around him. His ultimate goal is to create a kingdom of animals loyal only to him, having grandiose ambitions of turning every person in the world into animals using the SMILE fruits produced by Caesar.[2]

Breed is also connected with the illicit dealings of the Underworld while having prior knowledge of Donquixote Doflamingo's production of SMILE fruits, to which he kidnapped and enslaved Caesar Clown in an effort to produce his own line.

Like many characters, Breed has a distinct laughing style, "Petotototo", likely derived from his Devil Fruit's name.[3]

Abilities and Powers

Physically, Breed is nowhere near as strong as great pirates like Luffy and Law. He is, however, very good at strategizing and is an opportunist, using other animals to fight for him and ensnaring Luffy and Law with his collars when they were distracted. But when he uses his power on himself, Breed can bring out more power by enhancing his muscles and boosting his strength.

Devil Fruit

Further information: Peto Peto no Mi

Breed ate the Peto Peto no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit which allows him to create special collars out of green gel. He can place a collar around a victims neck by throwing the gel at them. Once someone is wearing the collar, they cannot remove it, and they are forced to obey all of Breed's commands against their will, so long as they actually hear the command.[3]

The collars work on all living creatures, from humans, to land animals, to sea creatures. He uses them to control many animals whom compose his crew. He also uses them to subjugate his enemies, allowing him to easily restrain and imprison them, and even have them fight each other to the death.

He can also bring out the full potential of his victims by commanding them to be as strong as possible. He can even do this to himself by placing a collar around his own neck.

Weapons

He wields a whip to intimidate his "pets".

History

Past

In the past, Breed abused his position as captain of his crew, to which they mutinied and set Breed adrift at sea. There, he encountered the Sea Animal Pirates led by a Kung-Fu Dugong, enslaving them and turned them into his obedient "pets" with the power of his Devil Fruit.[2]

Punk Hazard Arc

Breed was riding one of his pets in the middle of the ocean when he received a call from a Kung-Fu Dugong, who told him something. Breed responded with surprise, asking the Kung Fu Dugong if he really found the Straw Hat Pirates.[1]

Caesar Retrieval Arc

While the Straw Hats were sleeping, Breed had his army of animals attack the crew. Breed kidnapped Caesar during the commotion. After putting Caesar in a prison cell, Breed explained his motive of wanting to use the scientist to create his dream world. When Caesar refused to obey him, Breed used his powers and put a collar on Caesar. After Luffy, Chopper, and Law took the Shark Submerge III and followed Breed into his ship, Breed used his Devil Fruit and controlled Chopper, forcing him to transform into his Monster Point. Law prepared a room to contain Chopper, but Luffy tried to stop him, fearing Law would hurt Chopper. Breed took advantage of their distraction to put a collar on both of them, effectively taking complete control of them.[3]

After capturing Law, Luffy, and Chopper, Breed proceeded to give Luffy and Law a few orders to demonstrate his hold over them. He also took a liking to Chopper's cuteness and dressed him up in a girly outfit, despite Chopper's objections. Breed later imprisoned Luffy and Law in a Seastone cell in the same room where Caesar was kept. Breed revealed his ultimate plan, taking out a SMILE from his pocket, and stated that he wanted Caesar to create many more of the artificial fruits in order to turn all humans into animals, thus creating a world full of animals enslaved to his powers. When Luffy declared that as a pirate, he would never follow his orders, Breed forced Luffy and Law to fight each other to the death. When opposed by the Kung Fu Dugong, who tried to protect his friends, Breed stopped the fight and ordered the Dugong to kill his friends with his own hands instead.[2]

Breed was confronted by the dugong and Chopper, who blamed Breed for never actually trying to understand people, something that was noted to him by his old crew as well. Irritated by their disobedience, Breed ordered the other animals to attack Chopper and the dugong, but at that point Law and Luffy returned, much to everyone's surprise. Breed was shocked to hear that Law had seen through his Devil Fruit's weakness and used earplugs to resist Breed's orders.

That was when Breed started to demonstrate the true power of his Devil Fruit; he put a ring on his own neck and used his ability to bring out his body's potential, enhancing his muscles and boosting his strength. However, he lost control over his minions, who managed to work together and hold him still. He was finally defeated by a combined punch from Luffy and the dugong.[4]

Trivia

  • Many elements such as his clothing, weapon, and powers seem to make him resemble the stereotype of a circus beast tamer.
  • Breed is the first named non-canon character affiliated with the Underworld.
  • Breed's insistence on using animals over humans as crew members due to a past trauma of losing his human crew mirrors that of Gecko Moria's usage of zombies over humans after losing his first crew to Kaido. Both use their Devil Fruit powers to subjugate their armies, and felt no camaraderie for any members. One key difference being is that Breed did not care for his own crew while Moria did.
