Edward Weevil,[6] or "Whitebeard Jr.", is a pirate claiming to be the biological son of the now deceased Emperor Edward "Whitebeard" Newgate. He is the son of Miss Buckin, the self-proclaimed lover of Newgate.[1] He served as one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, whom he joined sometime during the two-year timeskip,[2] and did so until the Warlords' dissolution.[3]

Weevil was first mentioned by Marine commodore Brannew in a discussion of the current Warlord ranks to several high-ranking Marine officers, but was not explicitly named until after Donquixote Doflamingo's defeat.[7]

Appearance[]

Weevil has a stocky figure, with prominent scars going down his left eye, across his neck and around his left arm. He has bushy blond hair with two braids coming down either side of his face and similar to his self-proclaimed father, has a black bandanna and white crescent-shaped mustache which is thinner and even longer than Edward Newgate's. His legs are disproportionately small for his build and his bandaged nose also appears to be perpetually runny, evocative of his simple-minded nature. He wears overalls that are hung by chains rather than straps and bear his personal jolly roger on them.

Incidentally, from behind, his appearance is similar to that of Oars or Little Oars Jr., with his large build, thick mane of hair, and his exaggeratedly long mustache which (from behind) resembles horns. They even share jagged teeth, square jaw and a scar running down the left side of their face, as well as stick-like legs in comparison to the rest of their bodies.[1]

Personality[]

Edward Weevil is a violent man as he left destruction in his wake when hunting Whitebeard's crew and allies.

He is not very intelligent, shown by the fact he had a hard time telling the difference between a mirror and a photograph (even though the only similarity is the mustache). As a result, he is constantly manipulated by his mother, making him believe that he is the rightful heir of the Whitebeard Pirates' fortune, not the members of the Whitebeard Pirates, to whom he believed (influenced by his mother) are unworthy. He also talks in a whiny, snot-nosed manner, making him sound both infantile and highly unintelligent. Though his claims are widely doubted, at the very least he seems to genuinely believe them to be true.

Ewybody says it's too stupid to even considaw!! They aww say...!! ...That the only sons Whitebwead had were the Whitebwead Piwates!! But mommy, mommmmyy, I'm...!!! Whitebwead's son!! My bwead's even white!!!
— Edward Weevil[1]


Unlike his alleged father, Weevil does not hold concepts of family in the same regard, believing that his alleged blood heritage is what makes him true family, not bonds built on friendship and camaraderie. Because of this, he violently attacked all those once affiliated with Whitebeard. Regardless, he was shown to have protected Whitebeard's hometown Sphinx.

He also holds grudges, as he wanted to avenge his alleged father's death upon Blackbeard, but was convinced by his mother that revenge is not important.[1]

Despite his destructive behavior, Weevil is shown to be honorable when he saved Sphinx and its inhabitants from the Marines since it was the native home of his alleged father.

Relationships[]

Family[]

Miss Buckin[]

Miss Buckin is Weevil's mother. Both of them are Whitebeard's self-proclaimed family by claiming themselves as his biological family. They are hunting the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates and their allies to take Whitebeard's "fortune". Weevil is extremely obedient to his mother and is constantly being manipulated by her.[1]

Enemies[]

Whitebeard Pirates[]

Weevil claimed to be Whitebeard's biological son, but the Whitebeard Pirates refused to believe him and said the only sons that Whitebeard had are the Whitebeard Pirates. He defeated 16 crews of Whitebeard's old allies. He and his mother are hunting the 1st division Commander Marco "The Phoenix" to claim Whitebeard's "fortune".[1]

Marshall D. Teach[]

Weevil holds a grudge against Blackbeard for killing his so-called "father" Whitebeard. He wants to kill the Emperor at any costs to avenge his alleged father's death, but his mother suggested that revenge is not important.[1]

Monkey D. Luffy[]

Because Marco and the rest of the Whitebeard Pirates protected Monkey D. Luffy during the Summit War of Marineford, Weevil and his mother decided to go after Luffy for Marco's whereabouts.[1]

World Government[]

As one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, Weevil was an ally of the World Government, but he does not seem to take orders from them. During the timeskip, he had a bounty of Beli480,000,000 until he was invited by the World Government to become one of the Seven Warlords. He accepted the offer, but he caused too much catastrophe and over 600 civilian casualties, causing great concern for the Marines.[1]

Due to the Seven Warlords being abolished by the Levely, he is now an enemy to the government once again and his bounty was reinstated, and the Marines waste no time in arresting him. Weevil is infuriated about this[3] and wiped out the Marine forces sent to arrest him, as well as those that invaded Sphinx. However, he was eventually defeated and arrested by Admiral Ryokugyu.[8]

Other[]

Edward Newgate[]

Weevil claims to be the late Whitebeard's biological son, believing that it makes him special. However, his claim is heavily questioned by others. He initially wanted to avenge Whitebeard's death at the hands of Blackbeard until his mother told him that revenge was not important.[1] Thus Weevil has attacked many of his supposed father's former allies, and despite this, Weevil would later protect Whitebeard's birthplace, Sphinx, from the corrupt Marine Captain Ratel and his forces.[8]

Abilities and Powers[]

Weevil's powers have been praised by Borsalino who compared his abilities to that of a younger Whitebeard, his alleged father. He was able to single-handedly defeat 16 pirate crews affiliated with Whitebeard, including the A O Pirates.[9] When the Marines attempted to arrest Weevil after the Seven Warlord was abolished, Weevil completely wiped out the all the Marines sent to capture him. When he later appeared on Sphinx to protect it, the Marines there quickly retreated in fear of the former Warlords power. While he was no match for Admiral Ryokugyu, he at least survived the brutal Admirals attack.[8]

Weapons[]

Like his alleged father Whitebeard, Weevil wields a naginata as a weapon of choice. It is very similar in appearance to Whitebeard's Murakumogiri.[1]

Haki[]

Weevil possesses the ability to use Busoshoku and Kenbunshoku Haki.[5]

History[]

Past[]

Edward Weevil was born 35 years ago to his mother Buckingham Stussy somewhere on the Grand Line[5]. As an adult, he and his mother proclaimed that he was the biological son of Edward Newgate, a claim that is heavily questioned by others. He eventually joined the Seven Warlords of the Sea sometime during the timeskip.

During the timeskip, Weevil fought and destroyed 15 pirate crews that served under Whitebeard, in order to claim Whitebeard's treasure that Buckin had promised him. All of these started as small arguments that turned into large conflicts.[1]

Whole Cake Island Saga[]

Zou Arc[]

Weevil Defeats A O Pirates

Weevil defeating the A O Pirates.

Weevil defeated A O's crew after a small argument like usual. His mother told him that they must find Marco in order to claim the late Whitebeard's fortune, but Weevil was more interested in taking vengeance on Blackbeard for killing his alleged father. After convincing him otherwise, she then read from a newspaper about how the Straw Hat Pirates defeated Donquixote Doflamingo, and Weevil questioned his mother whether or not to chase after Monkey D. Luffy to get information on Marco.[1]


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


On separate occasions, Edward Weevil encountered Bizarre, the Decalvan Brothers, Elmy, Palms, Ramba, and Whitey Bay. They all got into an argument with Weevil. However, these small arguments resulted in their defeat at the hands of Weevil.[10]

Wano Country Saga[]

Wano Country Arc[]

After the abolishment of the Seven Warlords system, Weevil and his mother found themselves confronted by the Marines. Seeing that they were no longer allies, Buckin gave Weevil permission to take out the Marines, which he was happy to do.[3]

Weevil attacking Marines

Weevil defends Sphinx from corrupt Marines.

While Marco was away from Sphinx to support the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance in Wano Country, Weevil arrived on the island to defend it from the Marines attacking it. Weevil quickly defeated the squad's leader Ratel, making the other Marines call for backup. The call was answered by Admiral Ryokugyu, who defeated Weevil and took him prisoner, much to his mother's dismay.[8]
