Appearance[edit | edit source]
Terracotta is a large woman with curly blonde hair. She looks almost identical to Igaram which prompts some characters to accuse her of being Igaram in drag. Zoro said, "A couple can only look so much alike!" when he first saw her. Terracotta wears a dark red tunic, with a orange lining, that has a white stripe. Under her tunic is a light blue shirt with white buttons. She also wears bright red lipstick. When she cooks, she wears a white headband.

Relationships[edit | edit source]
Igaram[edit | edit source]

Vivi[edit | edit source]
Terracotta cares deeply for Vivi, consulting her on her coming-of-age speech and reassuring her that she only has to show the people of Alabasta how she has grown rather than give a prepared statement.
Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
As the royal head chef with over 30 years of experience, Terracotta is an exceptionally skilled cook, being able to quickly cook massive portions of food to feed the Straw Hat Pirates and keep up with Luffy's appetite.
Also, as the royal seamstress, it can be assumed she has great sewing skills as well.
History[edit | edit source]
Alabasta Arc[edit | edit source]
When Luffy woke up after sleeping for three days, Terracotta came into the Straw Hat Pirates' room in the medical bay to announce their dinner. She and her subordinate brought a massive tray of food, and Luffy and Zoro mistook her for her husband. She and her team cooked for and served Vivi and the crew. Terracotta admired Luffy's appetite and was determined to keep up with it until it was satisfied. At the end of the meal, she smiled and wiped the sweat off her forehead with her arm, content with successfully feeding the hungry crew. Later, she and Maidy dress up Vivi for the princess's speech. King Cobra tried to enter, but she kicked him out. When Igaram came in to talk to Vivi, she kicked him out, as well, saying that no one was allowed in. The two women spoke to Vivi about her coming-of-age speech, encouraging her to do her best.
