Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Anaconda
The World Nobles purchased Boa Sandersonia and her sisters from human traffickers. The Gorgon Sisters were forced-fed devil fruits while they were slaves as a sort of amusement. At that time, Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Anaconda Devil Fruit was fed to Boa Sandersonia. Years later, Fisher Tiger arrived and set everyone free, without caring if they were fish or humans. Boa Sandersonia and her sisters were taken in by Rayleigh since they had nowhere else to go, but it took them some time to go back to normal because the terrible memories of their time spent as slaves were still vivid in their minds.
The Sisters decided to hide their mark since they were ashamed of this and told the Kuja Tribe's inhabitants that they were cursed with these abilities after killing a monster called Gorgon. The Gorgon Sisters was then a name given to Hancock, Marigold, and Sandersonia, and they became the rulers of Amazon Lily. Boa Sandersonia and the other Kuja Pirates caught the attention of the World Government and seeing the amount of power they had, the World Government signed a treaty with the Kuja Pirates and gave Hancock the title of ‘Warlord of the Sea’.
While they were on their way back to Amazon Lily, Sandersonia and the Kuja Pirates encountered the Marines. As Vice Admiral Momonga called for Hancock, Sandersonia accompanied her sister to meet the Vice Admiral where Hancock lied about attending the Seven Warlord of the Sea meeting. When they asked for their aid to help the World Government, Sandersonia and the Kuja pirates rejected their plea. After Hancock turned all of Momonoga’s men into stone the Kuja Pirates looted the ship and went back to Amazon Lily. When they came back, Sandersonia and her sister Marigold started guarding the bathroom where Hancock was having her bath.
Little did they know that when Luffy jumped onto the top of Hancock's palace, he ended up entering it and falling into the bathtub, where he saw a mark on her back. The Hancock sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold, then appeared and warned the gang that Luffy would have to die as soon as he saw her back. Without paying attention to Luffy's story of how he got to Amazon Lily, Hancock led him to an arena. Afterward, Marguerite, Sweet Pea, and Aphelandra asked Hancock to save Luffy, but Hancock turned them into stone instead. She thereafter unleashed the panther Bacura, which Luffy defeated with a single blow.
When Luffy made the decision to fight all-out, Gear 2's speed was sufficient to destroy the Busoshoku Haki of Marigold and the Kenbunshoku Haki of Sandersonia. The Gorgon Sisters then unleashed their most devastating attacks, but Luffy blocked them all and bound the sisters' tails to send Sandersonia flying into the pit of spikes around the arena. She had lost her clothes after clutching the arena's edges, so Luffy came up on her naked back to cover the mark. When Hancock realized what he had done, she told the Kuja to leave the stadium. Arriving at Hancock's palace, Luffy was told by Hancock that the mark on his back was the Hoof of the Soaring Dragon, a representation of a slave of the World Nobles. She informed him that the Gorgon Sisters were forced to eat devil fruits for entertainment when they were captives. At that time, Boa Hancock was fed the Mero Mero Devil Fruit. The Sisters, who were ashamed of this, explained to the Kuja Tribe's inhabitants that they were cursed with these abilities after defeating the Gorgon.
When Hancock found out that Luffy had battled a World Noble, he grew fond of him and made a pledge to travel wherever he wanted to. When Hancock decided to help Luffy go to Impel Down to save his brother Ace, Sandersonia and the rest of the Kuja Pirates saw Hancock hiding Luffy in her coat. With Hancock on her way, Sandersonia and Marigold promised her that they would protect and take care of Amazon Lily in her absence.
After the Marineford Arc, Hancock came back to Amazon Lily with several men and an injured Luffy. As she did not want to set a bad example, Hancock did not visit Luffy until he was fully recovered. Boa Sandersonia and Marigold were concerned about Hancock as she had not eaten anything since she had returned. While Boa Sandersonia was on her way to give Luffy food, she met up with Rayleigh who had come to give Luffy something.
After Boa Sandersonia came again to Sabaody Archipelago with Marigold, Hancock, Nyon, and Marguerite to pick up Luffy from Rusukaina, Boa Sandersonia said that it looked like Luffy had become the Boss of the entire island. After seeing Hancock getting rejected by Luffy, Boa Sandersonia was seen smiling. When the Straw Hats were leaving for Fishman Island, the Kuja Pirates helped them by holding off a Marine ship.
When the Marines invaded Amazon Lily, Boa Sandersonia, and Marigold told the people of the island that they should not worry as she and her sisters were strong enough to fight against the Marines. When the Marines and the Blackbeard Pirates invaded the island, Koby told Hancock to surrender herself to the Marines but Boa Sandersonia and Marigold took care of Koby even though Hancock told them not to join the battle. After Blackbeard managed to capture Hancock, Rayleigh appeared and enforced a peaceful resolution.
After Hancock was captured, the Gorgon sisters, Rayleigh, Shakuyaku, and Gloriosa discussed the threat that Vegapunk’s new invention posed to Amazon Lily and how the Marines had developed.
Boa Sandersonia appears very fond of sister Hancock. She doesn't like to lie and is the most emotional of the three sisters. As she was ashamed to be a slave, she and her sister came up with a story stating that they had a set of eyes on their backs and they received it as part of a curse for slaying the Gorgon. She is really ashamed of the slave mark that she had gotten as a child. She is also a playful warrior who tended to tease and torture her enemies before she crushed them. She also tends to underestimate her enemies a lot.
Boa Sandersonia is a very large woman who is like a snake with a curvaceous figure. Her head is disproportionately large and wide to her body and she has a long forked tongue with sea-green eyes. She is seen wearing a green bikini top with irregular white patterns and a white cape over it.
She is seen being accompanied by a large panther whose name is Bacura, who is at her side at all times. As a child, Boa Sandersonia was of average height and wore an orange skirt with a green top. She wears a cape to cover her mark of slavery that was given to her by her Celestial Dragon.
Boa Sandersonia has power over Amazon Lily and the Kuja women as a ruler. She is one of the elite Kuja warriors and she can control her hair and shape it into snakes. She also has a strong will.
The Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Anaconda Devil Fruit is a Zoan-type devil fruit. This devil fruit allows the user to transform into an Anaconda hybrid or a full Anaconda at will. The user's physique is long, strong, muscular, and adaptable, and they have the ability to crush opponents. They also have pointed fangs. She can move in serpent patterns to escape and strike her opponents because of the lengthy hybrid body the devil fruit gave her. She incorporates haki as well in her attacks.
Boa Sandersonia is seen using Busoshoku Haki in her fight against Luffy.
Boa Sandersonia uses her Kenbunshoku Haki to read and avoid her enemy’s attack and she has mastered it to a point that she can dodge the attack effortlessly.
Boa Sandersonia is close with her sisters, Boa Hancock and Boa Marigold. After going through the same awful treatment at the hands of the World Nobles, they guard the secret on their backs from everyone, including the many inhabitants of Amazon Lily. Hancock chose to leave Amazon Lily and reconnect with Luffy in order to safeguard Sandersonia and Marigold from the Marines and Blackbeard's assault since she knew that staying there would put their lives at risk.
Unlike Hancock, Sandersonia respects Gloriosa and owes her the feeling of deep appreciation for helping her and her sisters return home after leaving the World Noble.
Sandersonia holds Shakuyaku in high regard because she was one of her sister's predecessors as empress. Shakuyaku sent Sonia and her sisters back home while keeping them hidden from the World Nobles. Shakky told Rayleigh about Hancock's affection for Luffy. Shakky and Rayleigh arrived in Amazon Lily to help Sonia and the Kujas, as well as drive both the Marines and the Blackbeard Pirates out, when her sister Hancock lost her position as a Warlord. Sonia and her sisters had been told by Shakky about Vegapunk's most recent creation and were told that Calm Belt was no longer secure as long as Hancock was around. Shakky was given the responsibility of watching over Sandersonia, the Kujas, and Amazon Lily while Hancock is away.
Silvers Rayleigh and Sandersonia are close friends since he gave them a place to stay when they escaped the World Nobles. Sonia and her sisters reconnected with Rayleigh after Ace's death. Rayleigh, his wife, and Shakuyaku protected Sonia and the others after her sister Hancock lost her status as a Warlord. Sonia and the other Kujas were under Rayleigh's protection when Hancock was away.
Sandersonia's initial hatred for Monkey D. Luffy was shown in their fight. She was impressed by his Haoshoku Haki skills, but she remained unconvinced until he shielded her and her sisters from the other Kujas by hiding her slave mark. Sandersonia began to appreciate Luffy hearing that he had requested that the three Kujas be returned from stone. Sandersonia and Marigold were both upset with Luffy when he asked Hancock to help him in rescuing his brother Ace, but those two women were shocked when Hancock accepted his request.
Sandersonia views the World Government as an enemy because she and her sisters were World Nobles' slaves.
