Basil Hawkins’s History


Basil Hawkins was born in North Blue 31 years before the current storyline. As a child, he loved reading the popular comic strip "Sora, Warrior of the Sea." When he grew up, he decided to become a pirate and formed his crew, the Hawkins Pirates.

They gained notoriety, and Hawkins had a bounty of Beli 249,000,000 before reaching the Sabaody Archipelago.


Sabaody Archipelago Arc


Once, Hawkins was in a restaurant with fellow Supernovas, Capone Bege and Jewelry Bonney, along with their respective crews. A waiter accidentally spilled food on one of his crew members. The crewmate complained, but Hawkins told him it was an unlucky day.


When news of Monkey D. Luffy's, the captain of the infamous Straw Hat Pirates, attack on a World Noble reached them, Hawkins didn't immediately decide whether to leave or stay. He simply said, "There is no need to rush. Our destiny has already been decided."

Later, Kizaru, an admiral, confronted Hawkins and his crew. Hawkins confidently claimed he wouldn't die that day. Kizaru attacked, but his strikes had no effect on Hawkins. Using his powers, Hawkins summoned straw dolls and predicted his chances against Kizaru.


During the battle, Urouge and X Drake also joined in, as well as a Pacifista. Hawkins used his "Goma no So" ability to transform into a giant scarecrow-like voodoo doll to defeat Kizaru. However, Kizaru blinded Hawkins and discovered that his ability wasn't a Logia type.


Before Kizaru could finish off Hawkins, Scratchmen Apoo intervened. Although Kizaru defeated Apoo, he was distracted by a Den Den Mushi, which saved Hawkins from certain death.


In the end, Kizaru managed to defeat Hawkins by shooting a light-based arrow into his abdomen.


Marineford Arc


After witnessing Portgas D. Ace's televised execution at Sabaody Archipelago, Hawkins managed to escape capture by the Marines. He also predicted the survival chances of Whitebeard's crew, although the outcome wasn't shown.


Later, Hawkins went to Marineford and observed the battle from a safe distance. He tried to predict Luffy's survival rate but found it strange that it never reached zero, no matter how many times he tried.


Post-War Arc


After the war, Hawkins and his crew entered the New World and arrived at Foodvalten, which was under Brownbeard's control. Hawkins annoyed Brownbeard by asking his name twice and making fun of it.

Still from the anime.


He then warned Brownbeard of an impending death omen, drew his sword, and activated his "Goma no So" ability to attack Brownbeard and his crew. In the fight that followed, Hawkins defeated Brownbeard and his crew, leaving Brownbeard crippled.


Punk Hazard Arc


During the two-year timeskip, Hawkins' bounty was raised to Beli 320,000,000. Later, he was invited to Eustass Kid's base in the New World. Hawkins remained calm and patient as a fight broke out between Kid and Scratchmen Apoo.


Basil Hawkins in One Piece.
Still from the anime.


He expressed his desire to leave, but eventually, they settled their differences, and the three captains, Hawkins, Kid, and Apoo, formed an alliance with the intention of overthrowing one of the Four Emperors.


Dressrosa Arc


While having a meal together, Eustass Kid, Basil Hawkins, and Scratchmen Apoo learned about Donquixote Doflamingo's defeat. They realized that Monkey D. Luffy and Trafalgar Law were targeting Kaido, as Doflamingo had connections with him. They were relieved that Luffy and Law were not after the same Emperor as them, who turned out to be Shanks.

Later, the trio felt a powerful tremor and investigated its source, finding a massive crater in the shape of a human. There, they unexpectedly encountered Kaido, and knowing they couldn't win or escape, Hawkins chose to submit to the Emperor.


One Piece: Stampede (Non-Canon)


Hawkins and his crew attended the Pirates Festival on Delta Island, taking part in the Treasure Race for Gol D. Roger's treasure. During the race, they clashed with other members of the Worst Generation.


However, the event took a chaotic turn when Douglas Bullet attacked, causing havoc. Hawkins and the other Worst Generation members teamed up against Bullet but were ultimately defeated due to Bullet's powerful Gasha Gasha no Mi abilities.

Still from the anime.


After Bullet's defeat, Hawkins and the Worst Generation pirates, along with other crews, tried to break through the Marine encirclement surrounding the island. They managed to escape successfully, thanks to Sabo and Ann creating a blazing barrier to protect them.


Wano Country Arc


After becoming Kaido's subordinates, Hawkins and his crew received news of a ship arriving at Wano. They lost communication with their scouts, so Hawkins decided to investigate the situation himself. On his way to Kuri Beach, he encountered Luffy and Zoro in a wasteland and confronted them.


Hawkins used his fortune-telling ability to predict that Luffy and Zoro had a 19% chance of surviving by the end of the month. As his men attacked the Straw Hat duo, Luffy tried to fight back by using a giant lizard, but Hawkins stopped it with his straw sword.


Zoro attacked Hawkins, but the damage was redirected to one of Hawkins' men because of his Wara Wara no Mi ability. Hawkins then summoned a giant straw entity and used his tarot cards to make his men attack each other.

Still from the anime.


Komachiyo, a helper, helped Luffy and Zoro escape, but Hawkins used his powers to pursue them. Zoro managed to slice the straw figure in two, and Hawkins drew a card indicating that someone would come to their aid.


Later, when they received a report of Luffy causing trouble in Bakura Town, Hawkins advised his crew not to engage him and went there himself. In the town, he encountered Law, who had disguised himself with a tengai.


After Law attacked Hawkins with his "Room" ability, Hawkins dodged the attack and figured out Law's identity. Law retaliated, taking out all of Hawkins' subordinates around them. As they confronted each other, Zoro and Kiku arrived on a stolen food cart, heading towards Okobore Town. Hawkins reported Holed'em's defeat after surveying the aftermath of his fight with Luffy.


Later, when Kaido appeared in a drunken state at Okobore Town, Hawkins quickly informed him that Luffy and Law were hiding in the ruins of Oden Castle to prevent further chaos. However, he didn't know that Luffy and Law were already there. Hawkins suggested destroying the castle to ease the shogun's fears, but Kaido's drunken attack on the castle didn't sober him up.


Hawkins witnessed Luffy's failed attempt to defeat Kaido, and during the chaos, he managed to pierce Law with a seastone nail before Law could rescue Luffy. Although Law escaped, Hawkins vowed to capture him.

A few days later in the Flower Capital, Hawkins accompanied Drake and Page One while they were on their way to punish a soba shop owner for fighting Kyoshiro's henchmen.


The next day, Hawkins and Drake led a group to raid a bathhouse in search of people with the Kozuki Family's crescent moon symbol on their ankles. They discovered Nami hiding and tried to expose her, accidentally revealing Sanji's presence in his Raid Suit, known as Stealth Black. After Sanji's group escaped, Hawkins and Drake continued their patrol in the capital.


Later, they guarded the prison in the Rasetsu District, where Shimotsuki Yasuie was held for execution. When the residents of Ebisu Town intruded in the capital, Hawkins realized Yasuie's importance. During the chaotic events, Hawkins witnessed Zoro and Sanji saving Toko.


When the Straw Hat Pirates raided the plaza, Hawkins stayed beside the prisoners and confronted Law when he came to rescue his crewmates. Hawkins revealed that he had linked himself to Law's subordinates and threatened to harm them if Law didn't surrender.

Law, determined to win, agreed to exchange himself for the freedom of his crewmates. Hawkins freed the three Heart Pirates, allowing Law to take their place in prison.

Still from the anime.


Sometime later, Law was locked in a cell in the Flower Capital, and Hawkins prepared to interrogate him about his alliance's plans in Wano. However, Law received unexpected help from Drake, who assisted him in subduing Hawkins. Law forced Hawkins to reveal information about his alliance with Kid and Apoo and how they were forced to submit to Kaido after Apoo's deception.


During the night of the Fire Festival, Hawkins was recovering from his wounds on Onigashima. Drake tried to persuade him to betray the Beasts Pirates while chaos ensued, but Hawkins seemed dismissive. He predicted that his chance of surviving until the next day was only 1%. Later, when Who's-Who sought Drake, Hawkins accompanied them to see Queen. Drake ended up being beaten by Queen, and Hawkins confronted him about releasing Law. However, Drake managed to escape due to an explosion.


Hawkins later encountered Kid and Killer, who were sent flying into the castle's third floor by Big Mom. He decided not to fight both of them and allowed Kid to go after Big Mom alone. Hawkins then transformed into a straw demon to battle Killer, predicting that Killer had a 92% chance of dying in the confrontation.


During the battle, Killer managed to deplete most of Hawkins' supply of straw dolls. However, when Killer stabbed Hawkins, the damage was redirected to Kid, who was fighting Big Mom elsewhere. Hawkins revealed that he had linked his life to Kid's, meaning that Killer would have to kill his own captain to defeat Hawkins.


Hawkins started slamming his head against a pillar to weaken Kid, leaving Killer in despair. Killer pleaded with Hawkins to spare Kid's life and offered his own in exchange. But Hawkins kicked him and suggested that he join Kaido's crew, as the Emperors seemed invincible. Killer knew that Hawkins regretted joining Kaido and refused, vowing to act without regrets.

In the intense battle, Killer managed to use Kid's lack of an arm to his advantage and extracted the last straw doll representing Kid. Hawkins tried to attack with his Straw Man's Cards, but Killer swiftly decapitated the strawman. Hawkins tried to predict the outcome with his tarot cards, but Killer pressed on and slashed him vertically, causing him to collapse.


After Kaido's defeat, Hawkins found Drake and questioned if he was a Marine, but Drake didn't answer. Hawkins, knowing his chances of survival were low, couldn't betray Kaido and return to Kid's side. He collapsed on the floor, unable to continue fighting.


Basil Hawkins’s Personality


Basil Hawkins is a character who presents himself in a noble and enigmatic manner. He exudes an aura of calm and composure, rarely showing emotional responses to even outrageous events that would affect most people. This stoic demeanor remains consistent, even when faced with powerful enemies like a Marine Admiral, as he carefully considers his options without faltering from his usual composure.


Basil Hawkins in One Piece.
Still from the anime.


While Hawkins generally appears aloof and unemotional, he does exhibit occasional glimpses of emotions such as shock, unease, and sadism. However, these instances are brief and downplayed, suggesting that he prefers to keep his emotions in check and under control.


His seriousness is a defining trait, as he dislikes jokes and is not easily bothered by nudity or unruly behavior. This seriousness extends to his interactions with others, and he has little tolerance for those who don't respect his time or act in a disorderly manner. He may even dismiss potential alliances if he perceives the other party to be disrespectful.


Hawkins approaches confrontations with a logical and pragmatic mindset. He is willing to fight unfairly and use hostages to subjugate his foes, showing a sense of ruthlessness when it comes to dealing with formidable opponents. However, he also demonstrates a sense of honor and may release hostages if his goals are achieved.


His distinctive habit is foretelling the fate of those around him, often using his tarot cards to read and analyze their destinies. He has great confidence in his cartomancy skills, using them to calculate probabilities and determine the best course of action. This skill influenced his decision to join the Beasts Pirates, as he believed it was the only path with a chance of survival.


Basil Hawkins in One Piece.
Still from the anime.


Despite his inclination to avoid needless violence and commotion, Hawkins can be a cruel and ruthless fighter when necessary. He is capable of inflicting harm on others without remorse and has little regard for the lives of those represented by his Straw Men, whom he uses as shields without concern for their wellbeing.


Hawkins' ability to make quick decisions and come up with lies on the spot showcases his intelligence and adaptability. His vague and ominous-sounding statements add to his enigmatic persona, and he uses them both to reassure others and to intimidate his opponents.


All in all, Basil Hawkins is a serious, composed, and enigmatic individual with a penchant for fortunetelling and a logical approach to confrontations. He may appear aloof and unemotional most of the time, but beneath that exterior lies a calculating and ruthless fighter who can make quick decisions and manipulate situations to his advantage.


Basil Hawkins’s Appearance


Basil Hawkins is a tall man with a distinctive and intriguing appearance. He has striking red eyes and long, golden hair that reaches down to his hips. His eyebrows bear black triangle symbols, adding to his enigmatic look. At the front of his neck, he sports a black cross tattoo, further contributing to his mysterious image.

Before the timeskip, Hawkins wore a pure white coat with a ruffled neckline and sleeves, giving him a regal and sophisticated appearance. His attire includes purple trousers tucked inside black boots with white laces. Around the lower part of his torso, he wears a dark fur ornament with a lighter shade in the middle.


A pink sash is tied around his waist, with a piece of jewelry hanging from it. Dark gloves similar to those worn by Blueno of CP9 adorn his hands, and on his left arm, he wears an armor-like armlet that extends to cover his left shoulder. On his right hip, he carries a unique sword with an elaborate pommel resembling a voodoo doll.

After the timeskip, his appearance undergoes some changes. He replaces the white cloak with a dark blue, green, and black checkered pattern cloak, reminiscent of a Scottish kilt. The pink sash remains, with the same ornament hanging from it, but now with a blue ornament instead of red.


He continues to wear the black fur belt and purple trousers with ruffles at the hems. His hair and skin also become lighter in color. During the Wano Country Arc, Hawkins wears a long black cape (white in the manga) and a dark shirt (white in the anime) with a ruffled collar that exposes his cross tattoo.


A brown glove is seen on his left hand, and he wears purple trousers with a checkered pattern and ruffles at the hems. His cravat is cream-colored and fastened by a dark cross-shaped pendant. Brown boots complete his attire, and he also dons a black and red violet armor-like armlet.


It's important to note that during the raid on Onigashima, Hawkins loses his left arm while fighting against Killer, which may further alter his appearance after this event.


Basil Hawkins’s Abilities


Basil Hawkins is a formidable and skilled pirate, recognized by the World Government as a fearsome member of the Worst Generation who managed to survive the first half of the Grand Line and enter the treacherous New World. As the Captain of the Hawkins Pirates, he holds complete authority over his crew.


One of his most notable feats was dealing crippling injuries to the Brownbeard Pirates and their Captain, Chadros Higelyges, effectively ending their career as pirates. This display of strength earned him a significant bounty, initially set at Beli 249,000,000, but after the timeskip, it was raised to Beli 320,000,000, making him one of the highest bounties among the Supernovas.


Basil Hawkins in One Piece.
Still from the anime.


Hawkins is a member of the Beast Pirates' Shinuchi, holding a high position within the crew and wielding authority over lower-ranking members. He is also one of the top authorities in Bakura Town, alongside Holed'em and Speed, showcasing his importance and influence in the Beast Pirates' ranks.


In battle, Hawkins demonstrates great skill in swordsmanship, supplemented by the powers of his Wara Wara no Mi Devil Fruit. With his Devil Fruit abilities, he can create swords and weapons made of straw, which are both flexible and sharp. His primary weapon is the Warabide Sword, a long, thin double-bladed longsword composed of straw material empowered by his Devil Fruit.


Furthermore, Hawkins has mastered both Kenbunshoku Haki (Observation Haki) and Busoshoku Haki (Armament Haki). With Kenbunshoku Haki, he can sense the strength of opponents even before confronting them, allowing him to make strategic decisions based on their power levels. His proficiency in Busoshoku Haki enables him to enhance his attacks and defend against formidable opponents.


One of Hawkins' signature abilities is the "Straw Man's Card" puppet technique. Using his sword's pommel as a medium, he can create and control straw puppets known as "Straw Men." These puppets represent people, and he uses them as a form of fortune-telling, allowing him to calculate probabilities and make tactical decisions based on the fate of those represented by the Straw Men.


Intelligence


Hawkins exhibits a high level of intelligence, characterized by his tactical and pragmatic approach to situations. Unlike some of the other notorious and bold members of the Worst Generation, Hawkins prefers to carefully calculate his actions and make strategic decisions based on practicality rather than bravado.


His most infamous tactic involves creating Straw Dolls, which he links to several individuals. By doing so, he uses these dolls as substitutes to absorb damage and life-threatening injuries, effectively making himself appear untouchable and enhancing his survivability in dangerous situations. This strategy showcases his cunning and willingness to use unconventional methods to gain an advantage.

Still from the anime.


Hawkins heavily relies on his fortune-telling abilities, using his tarot cards to assess probabilities and determine the best course of action in various scenarios. This demonstrates his foresight and ability to plan ahead, allowing him to prepare for potential confrontations and anticipate the moves of his opponents.


Moreover, Hawkins is pragmatic when it comes to facing powerful adversaries like the Four Emperors, Kaido, and Big Mom. He sees the futility of opposing such formidable forces directly and instead chooses to avoid unnecessary conflicts that could lead to his downfall. This approach highlights his intelligence in recognizing the limits of his own strength and the importance of choosing battles wisely.


When facing formidable opponents like Trafalgar Law and Killer, Hawkins uses premeditated strategies, creating Straw Dolls linked to Law's allies and Kid to gain leverage against them. However, his intelligence is also evident in his ability to adapt and improvise when faced with challenges.


Despite his careful planning, some strategies failed against Law and Killer, but Hawkins continued to use his tactical prowess to navigate through difficult situations.


Fortune Telling and Taro Cards


Hawkins possesses a unique and mysterious ability tied to his fascination with fortune-telling and the use of tarot cards. He can use his tarot cards to apparently assist him in determining the outcome of events, battles, and the likelihood of his own success. His predictions are often represented in the form of percentages, allowing him to calculate the probabilities of certain outcomes.


Hawkins' tarot card readings seem to be remarkably accurate, enabling him to foresee the survival of himself, his crew, and other Supernovas when confronted by formidable opponents like Kizaru. His ability to predict Luffy's chance of survival after sustaining injuries during a war further highlights the accuracy of his fortune-telling.


Basil Hawkins in One Piece.
Still from the anime.


He uses a deck of tarot cards, originally blue with a dark gray border and a yellow star in the middle over a dark blue burst. After the timeskip, his cards become red with a yellow border and a dark red star over a black burst. The cards appear to glow in various colors when he uses them, with different effects depending on whether the card is drawn reversed or not.


In combat, Hawkins can draw his tarot cards and utilize their effects. However, doing so is risky as the results can be detrimental to him and his forces as well. He believes that the greater the risk he takes, the higher the chance of receiving a favorable card. The effects of the cards can change depending on their orientation, either upright or reversed.


Some of the known card effects include:


  • The Fool: When reversed, it causes internal discord among Hawkins' men, making them attack each other.

  • The Hierophant: When reversed, it brings about retribution, enhancing Hawkins' Strawman technique. When upright, it serves as a support card and allows him to predict future events, such as someone coming to help his enemies escape.

  • Death: When upright, it represents destruction and boosts Hawkins' Strawman technique, increasing his confidence in killing his target.

  • The Tower: When the orientation isn't specified, it is revealed to mean "the collapse of the old and brittle," hinting at a new way forward.


Hawkins' tarot cards' artwork is similar to the Rider–Waite designs, with people depicted as skeletons, adding a dark and ominous touch to his abilities.


Devil Fruit


Hawkins possesses the power of the Wara Wara no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that grants him control over straw. With this ability, he can manipulate straw to create various constructs and weapons.


Basil Hawkins in One Piece.
Still from the anime.


One of the primary uses of his Devil Fruit power is to cover himself in straw armor, providing him with additional protection in battle. He can also fashion straw weapons, which can be used for offensive purposes, making him a formidable opponent in combat.


A notable aspect of his ability is the creation of large scarecrow-like straw effigies. These effigies are not only powerful in their own right but also equipped with nail-based weapons, adding to their combat capabilities.


The most infamous aspect of his Devil Fruit power is the creation of straw voodoo dolls. These voodoo dolls allow him to transfer any physical damage inflicted upon him to another person to whom the respective doll is connected to. This unique ability essentially makes him appear untouchable in battle, as he can pass on injuries to others, leaving himself unharmed.


However, there is a limit to how much damage can be transferred to his victims. Once a certain threshold of damage is reached, the doll will be shed from his body, bearing the visible wounds of the transferred damage and becoming unusable for further transfers.


Basil Hawkins’s Relationships


Hawkins seems to have complex and varied relationships with different individuals and groups in the One Piece universe:


Crew
