One Piece Wiki

Cornelia[2] is a member of the Spade Pirates.[1]


Cornelia is a tall, slim woman with a thin nose, thin eyebrows, and long, light-colored hair that covers her right eye. She wears a light-colored top underneath a long, light-colored coat wit ha high collar. She also wears dark-colored pants and dark-colored boots.


Cornelia cares greatly about her captain, Portgas D. Ace, since she was willing to defend him from Edward Newgate.[1] Cornelia can also be somewhat disrespectful, laughing at Deuce's adventure diary despite the fact that it is his main aspiration of their travels.[3]


Portgas D. Ace

Like the rest of the Spade Pirates, Cornelia cares greatly for her captain, defending him from an Emperor. However, she was not seen at the Summit War of Marineford.

Masked Deuce

Most of the Spade Pirates' crew members (excluding Skull, Mihar, and Kotatsu) read and laughed at Deuce's poor writing in his adventure diary. Because of this, their names were excluded from the diary.[3]

Abilities and Powers

Cornelia's abilities are unknown, but she and her crew were easily defeated by Newgate.[1]


Cornelia wields a sword, but her proficiency in using it is unknown.[1][2]


Making their Mark

Cornelia joined the Spade Pirates and traveled with Ace as he made a name for himself. She helped fight off a group of bounty hunters, and, when Isuka infiltrated the crew's ship, she surrounded the Marine Ensign alongside her crewmates. However, she easily fended them off. After the confrontation, the crew reached Sabaody Archipelago. While they waited for their ship to be coated, Cornelia and her crewmates explored the island and secretly read Deuce's adventure diary. They laughed at his poor writing skills, leading Deuce to exclude their names from the diary.[3]

At one point, the Spade Pirates were shipwrecked in Wano Country. The people from Amigasa Village were starving to death, so they tied the entire crew and stole all their food. The crew watched the villagers finish their meal and then broke out. Instead of attacking, Ace asked the villagers where he could get them dessert. They stayed in Amigasa Village for a few weeks and became good friends with Tama.​​ They also went to Onigashima to liberate the abducted children from the Beasts Pirates. They never encountered Kaido and his top subordinates because they were away on an expedition. After Ace did so much damage to Kaido's castle, they rescued the children and met Yamato, whom Ace had a brief scuffle with.[4]

Encountering Whitebeard

The Spade Pirates Prepare to Fight Whitebeard.

After Ace and Jinbe tied, Cornelia and the other Spade Pirates defended their captain against Edward Newgate and were easily defeated. They were then taken into the Whitebeard Pirates like their captain.[1] Cornelia has not been seen since her joining.

Major Battles


  • Oda has stated in an SBS that Whitebeard did not allow women in his crew as combatants.[5] It is unknown whether an exception was made for Cornelia and Banshee when the Spade Pirates were assimilated into the Whitebeard Pirates.
