Sora[2] was the late queen of the Germa Kingdom. She was the wife of Vinsmoke Judge, and the mother of Reiju, Ichiji, Niji, Sanji, and Yonji.[1]


Sora was a young woman with wavy, light-colored hair that was parted to cover the right side of her face. Her hairstyle, and her overall facial features, bear great resemblance to those of her daughter, Reiju.[1]

While she was pregnant with her sons, Sora has been shown wearing a long double-layered dress with frilled hems.[3] While bedridden, she mainly wore a light-colored shirt with a v-shaped neckline held together with two pins.[1]


Sora was a kind and caring woman, with great strength of character. She loved her children and was fiercely protective of them, believing that they should grow up with normal human emotions and not as mindless killing machines. As a result, she did everything in her power to resist her husband's experiments on their sons, to the point of sacrificing her own life.[2]

Sora doted in particular on Reiju and Sanji, the only two of her children to exhibit empathy and compassion, in order to encourage these traits. She could also be very emotional, as she readily burst into tears when recounting Sanji's well wishes to Reiju and Époni.[2]



Vinsmoke Judge

Sora and her husband had conflicting ideals, which were complicated by their positions as the monarchic rulers of the warmongering Germa Kingdom. While Judge wanted to endow their sons with surgical enhancements that would give them superhuman power to wage and win wars, Sora did not want it to cost them their humanity. Ultimately, Judge forced her to undergo the surgery, and Sora, maintaining her opposition, took a drug to counteract the surgery and eventually succumbed to its after-effects.[4]

After Sora passed away, Judge wished to move on from her way of doing things, as he saw no merit and nothing to be gained by continuing the legacy of a deceased person, and did not want his children to emulate her kind actions.[5] In modifying the Lineage Factor of their quadruplet sons against her will, and then neglecting and discarding Sanji (their only son to live up to Sora's efforts), Judge effectively trampled on Sora's wishes.[6]


Sora loved all of her children, and it was this love which motivated her to perform the actions which ultimately cost her her life. While she was pregnant with their four sons, she took a drug that was intended to counteract the effects of the genetic modification surgery Judge would ultimately force her to undergo. However, the drug failed to work on IchijiNiji, and Yonji, leaving Sanji as the only one capable of experiencing empathy. Furthermore, the physical after-effects of the drug triggered a rapid deterioration in her health, and she was left bedridden for the remainder of her life.[7]

While not much is known about Sora's relationship with Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji, Sora's love for her children was reciprocated by Reiju and Sanji, both of whom would occasionally visit her in the medical ward. Sora doted in particular on Sanji, due to the latter's kindness and compassion. She ate his poorly-made food (which tasted disgusting) with a smile,[8] and praised him as the "sweetest boy in the world" when he told her his hopes for her quick recovery. During Reiju's visits, Sora would proudly share with her daughter stories about Sanji's emotional growth.[9]

After Sora's passing, Sanji continued to develop his cooking skills and decided to become a chef in her memory.[10] An adult Reiju also continues to recall memories of her mother with great fondness, while harboring great anger and resentment towards Judge for contributing directly to Sora's death. This resentment does not extend to her brothers, however. When Sanji finally learned from Reiju the reason for their mother's early death, Sanji was horrified and began to blame himself, but Reiju stopped him by telling him that Sora had no regrets about her choice.[11]

Abilities and Powers

As queen consort of the Germa Kingdom, Sora had authority over its citizens before her death, although her command appeared to be second to that of her husband's. She also had enough scientific knowledge to procure and consume a drug to counteract genetic enhancement surgery on her unborn children, although the drug had lethal side effects.[2]


Sometime in the past, Sora married Judge, thereby becoming queen consort of the Germa Kingdom. She gave birth to their first child and only daughter, Reiju, before becoming pregnant with fraternal quadruplet sons three years later.[1][12]

Sora Sabotages Judge's Plans

Sora takes a drug to try to humanize her children.

Before their sons were born, Sora argued with her husband about giving their children genetic modifications. She was against him turning their sons into emotionless beings, but Judge was only concerned with giving them the physical power and emotional coldness to fight and win wars. Sora was eventually forced to undergo surgery, but she took a drug that was intended to counteract the effects of the surgery. However, the drug she took only affected Sanji, while weakening her health to the point of death. Despite this, Sora had no regrets and was immensely overjoyed and proud whenever Sanji showed signs of kindness.[2]

In her final years, Sora was bedridden in the Germa Kingdom's medical ward, where she was attended to by Époni. On one occasion, Sanji visited his mother and gave her a meal that he had prepared for her. Even though it looked and tasted terrible, she ate the meal and said it was delicious.[1] On another occasion, Sanji told her that he hoped she would recover soon, leaving her in tears. Sora was also regularly visited by Reiju, to whom Sora would often speak happily about Sanji and his continued emotional growth.[2]

Sora later died over 13 years ago, prior to the Germa Kingdom's invasion of Cozia in the East Blue.[1]
