Personality

Breed is an arrogant, selfish, and villainous individual who is psychotically obsessed with enslaving humans and animals alike into his "pets" utilizing his Devil Fruit ability. He demands absolute obedience and loyalty from his enslaved pets, and easily becomes enraged when his orders are not followed or being questioned; to which he is not above physical abuse with his whip. Having been betrayed by his former crew over his cruelty, Breed also does not believe in friendship and views as a detriment to his perceived authority.

Breed is also lacks empathy and respect for the welfare of the animals he controls and merely treats them as pawns, including the likes of the Sea Animal Pirates as his own subservient crew. However, he develops an cute obsession for Tony Tony Chopper in his Brain Point form similar to Porche, which he addresses him as "Chappy" (チャッピー Chappii?) and dresses him in overtly feminine fashion to a humiliating degree. His preference for enslaving animals does not extend to humans, however, to which he calls them foul and disgusting over them defying his orders repeatedly. Having favored pets over their inherent obedience, Breed's ultimate dream is to create a kingdom of animals loyal only to him, having grandiose ambitions of turning every person in the world into animals to enslave 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. He also displays some humility and admits that Luffy and Law are stronger than him.

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

Abilities and Powers

Breed is nowhere near as powerful as the Worst Generation like Luffy and Law, that latter being a Warlord. He is, however, clever and very opportunistic at utilizing others enslaved under his Devil Fruit ability to fight for him and even ensnaring the two when they were distracted. When he uses his power on himself, Breed can bring out his physical strength to its maximum potential, which is shown by creating a massive whirlwind just by swinging a single Sea Lapin around at a high velocity.

Devil Fruit

Further information: Peto Peto no Mi

Breed ate the Peto Peto no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that 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

Breed wields a whip which he uses to physically discipline his "pets", often to the point of abuse.

History

Past

At some point, Breed had 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 Kaidou. 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.
