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. 30 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.
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.
Arrival at Wano
Thirty years ago, Whitey Bay was with the Whitebeard Pirates when they arrived for the first time at Wano Country. The crew was shipwrecked and, before going into the island to gather supplies, they encountered Kozuki Oden, who, after a brief clash, asked Whitebeard to let him join their crew.
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 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.
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.
