One Piece Wiki

Lacuba[3] is a pirate famed as a devious tactician, with a bounty of Beli.png17,000,000.[1]


Lacuba is a tall man with a brown coat and hat. He has long black hair and a beard, and has his crew's jolly roger tattooed on his chest. After he attempted to commit suicide by biting his tongue off, the tip of his tongue was flattened.[1]


Lacuba is a prideful man, as he would rather attempt suicide than spend the rest of his life being humiliated as a slave.
