One Piece Online: Character Origins – Imu
The world of One Piece is constantly expanding, and fans are eagerly awaiting answers about the events of the Void Century. The Final Saga promises to reveal these secrets, as well as shed light on enigmatic characters such as the Five Elders and the ruler of the world, Saint Imu. In addition, the history of the 20 Kings and their families, who were involved in the creation of the World Government, has become a focal point of exposition. Recently, the existence of the Nerona Family, from which Saint Imu hails, was unveiled, adding more intrigue to the story.
The Nerona Family:
The Nerona Family is relatively unknown in the world of One Piece. It was introduced by Emporio Ivankov, a high-ranking member of the Revolutionary Army who shared secrets about the Reverie with Sabo. According to Ivankov, the Nerona Family was one of the original 20 families that established the World Government and fought against the Ancient Kingdom in the distant past. Saint Imu was the sovereign of the Nerona Family, implying their significant role during the Void Century. The Nerona Family was known to have conflicts with the Nefertari Family, who may have also been involved in the events of the Void Century.
Queen Lily and the Nefertari Family:
Imu blames Queen Lily of the Nefertari Family for the resurgence of the “D” and the current state of piracy in the world of One Piece. Despite this, the Nefertari Family chose not to become Celestial Dragons and instead sought to return to Arabasta to rule their people. Unfortunately, Queen Lily mysteriously disappeared during her journey, with King Cobra suspecting foul play orchestrated by Imu due to their grudge. The deep history shared between the Nerona Family and the Nefertari Family remains a mystery, as it perished with King Cobra.
Saint Imu of the Nerona Family:
Saint Imu is not an unfamiliar name in the world of One Piece. Even King Cobra was aware of Imu’s existence, considering them one of the original 20. According to Emporio Ivankov, Saint Imu was a Celestial Dragon who made a vow as part of the Founding 20 during the creation of the World Government. Unlike the other sovereigns who perished, Imu somehow gained absolute power, likely due to their immortality. It is believed that Imu attained immortality through the use of the Ope Ope no Mi Devil Fruit, making them the strongest and most authoritative among the Celestial Dragons.
The Powers of Saint Imu:
As the ruler of the world, Saint Imu possesses formidable power. Imu’s status as the ruler implies that they are highly capable, surpassing even the dangerous members of the Founding 20 who fought against the Ancient Kingdom. Imu’s recent reveal of possessing a Devil Fruit, speculated to be a Mythical Zoan type, showcased their ability to transform into a giant creature and overpower Sabo. Imu’s Devil Fruit power and potential usage of Conqueror’s Haki suggest immense strength and influence.
Unraveling the Mystery of Saint Imu:
Although Oda has already shared significant information about Saint Imu, there is much more to learn about this character. One Piece continues to explore the history of the Void Century and the powerful figures at the top of the world. Fans can look forward to further revelations about Saint Imu in the future, making these exciting times for One Piece enthusiasts.
