Kurozumi Semimaru was a member of the Kurozumi Family and a major supporter of Kurozumi Orochi.[2][3]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Semimaru's appearance over 41 years ago.

Semimaru was an elderly balding man, with long light colored hair and a long goatee.[2]

Over 41 years ago, during Kurozumi Higurashi's meeting with Orochi, he wore a light-colored kimono with a diamond pattern.[2]

Twenty-five years ago, after Orochi became the shogun of Wano Country, he wore a light colored kimono with a dark dotted pattern, and a dark haori.[4]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Semimaru was very calm and did not show much of a reaction in crisis, such as when Oden attacked Orochi, as he simply put up a barrier to protect the latter.[4] When he saw Oden humiliate himself on the street of the Flower Capital, he cackled with his family members, enjoying their successes.[4]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Kurozumi Family[edit | edit source]

Semimaru was loyal to his family, and went along with Higurashi plot to make Orochi the shogun.[2] He was seen laughing with them in triumph after they had forced Kozuki Oden, their rival to the shogunate, to humiliate himself.[4]

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

Semimaru was a lute priest and was very capable in playing the lute, even when crossing his fingers to use his ability.[2][4]

Devil Fruit[edit | edit source]

Further information: Bari Bari no Mi

Semimaru ate the Bari Bari no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to create barriers at will. With this ability, he was able to easily shield Orochi from attacks with an unbreakable barrier.[4]

History[edit | edit source]

Over 41 years ago, Semimaru was present when Kurozumi Higurashi explained to Kurozumi Orochi what happened with his grandfather and the downfall of the Kurozumi Family.[2]

Twenty-five years ago, Semimaru was with Orochi and Higurashi when Oden returned and attacked Orochi, and he created a barrier to protect Orochi, rendering Oden unable to remove him from power.[4] Five years later, Semimaru accompanied Orochi and Higurashi to Kuri as Orochi told Oden of his intention to build factories there.[4]

Semimaru eventually died of unknown causes, as his fruit's powers are currently in the possession of Bartolomeo.[5]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Semimaru's name and profession are possibly inspired by the Japanese poet and musician Semimaru.
  • Semimaru (蝉丸?) means 'cicada circle'. The cicada theme is also present in the name of his family member Higurashi.
