The Lineage Factor is the blueprint of life itself, present in all living organisms. It was discovered by a research team led by Dr. Vegapunk and Vinsmoke Judge.[1]

Overview

All lifeforms have the Lineage Factor, and by manipulating it from a young age the growth of a lifeform can be changed. Eating a Devil Fruit affects one's lineage factor that allows them to gain a supernatural power.[2]

Applications

SAD

Main article: SAD

By applying Lineage Factor, Caesar Clown was able to create SAD, a key ingredient used in the development of artificial Devil Fuits known as SMILES, as explained by Trafalgar Law.[2]

Enhanced Humans

By manipulating the Lineage Factor, Vinsmoke Judge was able to create enhanced humans, specifically his five children. The subjects develop an Exoskeleton (外骨格 Kaikokkaku?) and, with training, rapidly increase in strength and resilience to the point equaling an adult man while in their early childhood. However, Judge found out that the process can have its failure rates, as Sanji remained as a normal human despite modifications.[1]

Some of the experiment subjects lose their ability to feel emotions like empathy and sympathy. However, even with successful subjects such as Vinsmoke Reiju, this can fail to happen.[3]

Cloning

Main article: Cloning

Vinsmoke Judge conducted several researches and experiments with the Lineage Factor, becoming able to artificially manufacture human beings to fill the soldier ranks of Germa 66. Those soldiers are known as Clone Soldiers (複製 (クローン) 兵 Kurōn Hei?) and they are made without the knowledge of their origin.[1]

Trivia

  • The Lineage Factor is a reference to DNA, the molecule that contains all the genetic information of the host organism.
