Pavlik is a fat man with short legs and thin arms. He dresses in mafia-style clothing such as a black fedora alongside a white collared shirt with a black tie under black coat. In the manga, he appears on separate occasions with a slightly different appearance. In his debut, he had a thick gray beard and wore a black pirate captain coat, but he had shorter facial hair and wore a black coat with a white cape over, in subsequent appearances, much like that of his concept art and the anime.
Pavlik is very loyal to Whitebeard, as he was willing to risk his and his own crews' lives to save Portgas D. Ace. This shows that Pavlik highly treasures friendship because he charged straight into battle upon orders to save their comrade. Also, his willingness to challenge Marine Headquarters shows that he is a fearless pirate that will not back down even in the toughest of situations, which is further showed when he was faced with an army of Pacifistas, but still stood his ground and continued to fight.
Abilities and Powers
Pavlik is a fearsome pirate who has managed to achieve an infamous reputation in the New World.
Summit War Saga
When Portgas D. Ace was to be executed at Marineford, Pavlik and his crew joined forces with the Whitebeard Pirates in order to save him from execution. While the Marines were bracing for the arrival of the pirates, Pavlik and the allied fleet of the 43 subordinate captains caught them by surprise when the fleet suddenly appeared out of nowhere just off the shores of Marineford. A few moments later, the pirates received the orders to attack and, immediately following the vice admirals' entrance into battle, Pavlik charged into battle alongside several of the other subordinate captains.
Anime and Manga Differences
The scene where the allied captains charged into battle is omitted in the anime. However, the anime does at a scene in which Pavlik is seen commenting to a fellow pirate about how they still have to deal with the Pacifistas. In the manga, he was only seen fighting against the Pacifista with other captains. Because of the omission of his manga debut scene, Pavlik is only seen in the anime with his second design, and not the initial one shown in the manga.
