Whitey Bay has long, flowing blue hair, full lips and always has a confident expression on her face. She sports a short striped dress closed by laces that have flower-shaped buttons, with loose sleeves, and a scarf. She also wears a polka-dotted bandanna, and over it a light blue and purple pirate hat with her Jolly Roger in the center, a skull with a snowflake design. She also sports a cape, hanging from her back.
During her youth thirty years ago, she wore a striped long-sleeved shirt that exposed her midriff and a short striped skirt.
Having only appeared on a small number of occasions, there is little of her personality that can be ascertained as of late, aside from a confident stance and a somewhat laid-back demeanor. She also seems very loyal to Whitebeard, as she answered his call to arms to save Ace.
Abilities and Powers
Whitey Bay is a pirate who has managed to make herself an infamous reputation in the New World and to become a subordinate of the Whitebeard Pirates. She is an experienced veteran, having started as a member of the Whitebeard Pirates during their early years before becoming a captain of her own pirate crew.
In the anime, she is seen wielding a sword.
Whitey's icebreaker has a steel-plated hull instead of a wooden hull seen on most other ships in the series so far. Also in place of a figurehead, the ship has a snowflake insignia on the front. On board the ship is the cabin which also has snowflakes painted on the walls, and has cannons mounted on top. There are masts and sails, with the front sail having the crew's Jolly Roger painted on it.
Because of the ship's steel-plated hull, it boasts higher offensive and defensive capabilities. Its main purpose is to break through ice-covered waters, including the sea of ice created by Admiral Aokiji. This made her ship the only one of the entire Whitebeard Pirates capable of continuing onward, while the rest were trapped by the ice. Additionally, her ship broke through a section of Marineford's wall.
Thirty years ago, Whitey Bay was still an immediate member of the Whitebeard Pirates when they arrived for the first time at Wano Country. The crew was shipwrecked and had decided to go into the island to gather supplies. When Marco offered to go along, Whitey Bay disproved of it on the basis that he was just an apprentice. A few moments later, they encountered Kozuki Oden, who, after a brief clash, asked Whitebeard to let him join their crew.
The Whitebeard Pirates later had a feast with Oden and his retainers. Oden kept asking to join the crew, but he was turned down. Two weeks later, the Whitebeard Pirates tried to leave Wano without Oden. As they were leaving, the crew was surprised when Oden wrapped a chain around the Moby Dick's mast and got dragged with the ship. As Oden held onto the chain, Izou was also holding on to Oden and got dragged with him. After Izou was pulled up onboard, Oden accepted Whitebeard's challenge of holding onto the chain for three days before he could be accepted into the crew. For the next three days, the crew watched how Oden withstood his ordeal. When Oden had an hour left to complete the challenge, the crew started cheering for him. After Oden was accepted into the crew, the Whitebeard Pirates had adventures with him as well as Toki, whom Oden helped, and Inuarashi and Nekomamushi, who had stowed away on the Moby Dick.
Four years after Oden joined, the Whitebeard Pirates arrived at an island and noticed a commotion that frightened even the animals. The crew then clashed with the Roger Pirates for three days and three nights before the skirmish ultimately became a gift exchange. Afterwards, the Whitebeard Pirates parted ways with Oden and his family.
Rise to Infamy
Whitey Bay later established her own crew and became an infamous pirate herself, while remaining subordinate to Whitebeard.
Summit War Saga
Upon learning that Portgas D. Ace was going to be executed, Whitey Bay and her crew joined forces with several other pirates and Whitebeard's crew to rescue Ace. Arriving at Marineford, as the war with the Marines began, the pirates found their ships frozen at sea by Aokiji. However, this setback did not stop Whitey Bay and her crew. Due to their ship being an icebreaker, they simply broke through the ice. As they sailed, they created another opening in the Marine's formations for which Whitebeard and his subordinates could progress through besides the opening created by Little Oars Jr. earlier.
As the battle raged on and events unfolded, Whitey Bay and the other pirates were instructed to stop attacking Marineford straightforwardly. Whitebeard noticed something was going on with the Marines and thus instructed Bay and the rest to instead attack the base from the sides.
Four Emperors Saga
Under unknown circumstances, Whitey Bay encountered Edward Weevil and got into an argument. However, this small argument resulted in her defeat at the hands of Weevil. The news of her defeat was seen on Kizaru's desk.
Concludes non-canon section.

Anime and Manga Differences
In the manga version of Whitebeard and Ace's funeral in Chapter 590, Whitey Bay cannot be seen among those in attendance. However, the anime version of the exact same scene in Episode 505 explicitly shows Whitey Bay alongside the other attendees. Although it can be assumed that Whitey Bay was at the funeral, there is no visual evidence of her attendance in the manga to support this assumption and, as such, her attendance can only be considered non-canon.
- Her name is very similar to the English town Whitley Bay, which is somewhat famous for its ice rink.
- Despite Whitebeard having a policy of not allowing women as fighters on his crew, Whitey Bay was shown to be a full-fledged fighter in the Whitebeard Pirates over 30 years ago.
