Currently, Kurozumi Orochi is the only known living member of the family. As the family of Wano's Shogun, the Kurozumi Family has numerous allies and retainers. In addition to the Orochi Oniwabanshu and Mimawarigumi, the Kurozumi Family is closley allied with both Kaido's Beasts Pirates and the Flower Capital's leading yakuza organization, the Kyoshiro Family. Kyoshiro himself works as a money changer for the Kurozumi shogunate, though his respect for Orochi appears to be questionable at best.[2]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

A few generations ago, the Kurozumi Family was one of the six most prominent families in Wano, with their leaders serving the Kozuki Family by ruling as daimyo over an unknown region. When the current shogun had not fathered an heir, the five daimyo became the top candidates for the position. The head of the Kurozumi Family proceeded to work toward gaining the shogunate by poisoning the other daimyo. However, his plans were foiled when the shogun suddenly fathered an heir, Kozuki Sukiyaki. The Kurozumi Family's plot was soon afterward brought to light, and they lost all of their power and possessions as their leader was sentenced to commit seppuku. The members became scattered and lived in squalor.[3]

Several decades later, the grandson of the treasonous leader, Kurozumi Orochi, was approached by a mysterious old woman who offered to help him become shogun. In the next 15 years, Orochi gathered up money, and the woman used her Devil Fruit ability to pose as Sukiyaki and declare that Orochi would temporarily succeed him.[3] Orochi succeeded Sukiyaki after his death, and he would later have Sukiyaki's son and true heir Oden executed 20 years before the present day. He attempted to have Oden's wife Kozuki Toki and two children killed, but Toki sent her son Momonosuke forward in time, leaving Momonosuke as a rival to the Kurozumi Family for the shogunate.[2]

TriviaEdit

  • Kurozumi literally means "black charcoal" in Japanese.
    • It is the only one of the six major family names (Kozuki, Shimotsuki, Uzuki, Amatsuki, and Fugetsu) to not contain the word "moon" ( "tsuki"/"getsu"?).
