Vinsmoke Family, Germa Kingdom
Vinsmoke Sora married Vinsmoke Judge which made her Queen of the Germa Kingdom. Years later, she gave birth to her first child, Reiju, who was their only daughter and three years later, she was pregnant with quadruplets, Ichiji, Niji, Sanji, and Yonji. Before giving birth to her sons, Sora used to argue with her husband as he wanted to give the children genetic enhancements which would also turn them emotionless, but in return, they will have great physical power to fight in wars. Vinsmoke Sora was forced to undergo surgery but she undertook a drug that counteracts the effects of the surgery.
Sadly, the drug only took effect on Sanji and it weakened her health to the point of death. Despite this, Sora had no regrets and was happy when Sanji showed kindness. Towards the end of her life, Sora became bedridden and Sanji used to visit her and get her his own cooked meals. Even though it tasted and looked terrible, Sora used to eat the food and compliment Sanji on his skills. Sanji hoped that she would recover soon. Reiju also used to visit her mother and they used to talk about Sanji and his growth. Sora later passed away.
Even though Judge thought that Sora’s values were worthless, it was proved right when Sanji saved the Vinsmoke Family from being assassinated by Big Mom Pirates. Despite suffering the abuse throughout the years, Sanji still chose to save his family as he was kind and all the values he had were cherished by Sora. Even though Sora thought that Sanji was the only one who did not have modifications, he developed them later on during the Raid on Onigashima due to wearing his raid suit continuously. But Sanji destroyed the Raid suit to honor his mother and to prevent himself from becoming emotionless like his brothers.
Vinsmoke Sora was a very kind and caring woman who had a lot of strong will. She loved her kids a lot and was very protective of them. She believed that they should grow up as normal human beings and not as cold-blooded killing machines. She did everything in her power to resist her husband’s experiment on the children to the point that she sacrificed herself for it. She really loved Sanji and Reiju the most as those were the only two who actually showed empathy and compassion. Sora was also very emotional.
Vinsmoke Sora had pale skin, dark blue eyes, and shoulder-length blond hair with a tuft that covered her right eye. Her and Reiju’s hairstyles are quite similar. She is seen wearing a blue long-sleeved dress with frills and no shoes. When she was pregnant with the quadruplets, she had longer hair, pink lipstick, and wore a white short-sleeved dress with frills and pink shoes.
As Vinsmoke Sora was the Queen of the Germa Kingdom, she had power over its people and was second in command after her husband. She had good knowledge in the scientific field and was able to make a drug that could counteract the genetic enhancement surgery that was done on her unborn children, even though it had lethal effects on her. After this, she had done irreversible damage to her health.
Sora and her husband had contrasting views, which were made more difficult by the fact that they were the king and queen of the Germa Kingdom. While Judge wanted to give the children medical enhancements that would give them superhuman strength to fight and win battles, Sora did not want it to come at the expense of their humanity. In the end, Judge had Sora have the operation despite her resistance, so she took medication to counteract the procedure but ultimately passed away from its consequences.
After Sora died, Judge wanted to abandon her way of doing things since he didn't see the need in carrying on a departed person's legacy and didn't want his kids to follow in her good deeds. Judge completely disregarded Sora's intentions by changing the Lineage Factor of their quadruplet kids against her will and then ignoring and rejecting Sanji.
All of Sora's children were precious to her, and this dedication drove her to put her own life in danger. She took medicine to combat the effects of the genetic modification procedure Judge would eventually have her undergo when she was carrying their four boys. Sanji was the only one who was able to feel empathy, while Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji were not affected by the medication. While nothing is known about her relationships with Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji; Reiju and Sanji, who occasionally paid her in the hospital, showed Sora their unconditional love. Sanji was especially loved by Sora because of his good nature and compassion.
Sanji kept honing his cooking abilities after Sora passed away and made the decision to become a chef in her honor. Despite having hatred towards Judge for personally causing Sora's death, a mature Reiju nevertheless treasures her memories of her mother. Reiju ultimately revealed to Sanji the cause of his mother's passing. Sanji was shocked and started to take the blame, but Reiju convinced him by saying that Sora had no regrets about her decision.
