York’s History


In the past, York accompanied the Vegapunk satellites to Mary Geoise, witnessing the cruelty of the World Nobles. While others condemned the Nobles, York aspired to become one of them.


Three months before the Egghead Incident, York informed the Five Elders that Vegapunk was conducting forbidden research on the Void Century. Though no evidence was found, York abducted dispatched Cipher Pol agents before they could leave Egghead, increasing suspicion of Vegapunk's rebellion.


York also secretly delivered a Mother Flame sample to the Five Elders, which later destroyed the Lulusia Kingdom.

While Edison and Pythagoras worked, York handled their bodily functions, allowing them to work without breaks. During a gathering of the satellites (excluding Atlas), York ate and wondered if something interesting would happen before falling asleep.


After the lab's defense against CP0 and the Seraphim, York, feeling betrayed by the World Government, secretly instructed the Seraphim to kill everyone except her, Stella, and the captured Cipher Pol agents. She ordered S-Snake to petrify her temporarily to dispel suspicion and protect a specific part of the lab. At the same time, York set a password to lock the Frontier Dome, hindering any escape attempts.

After joining the search for Stella, York, alongside Lilith, Usopp, and Franky, reached the third floor of Building C where Pythagoras was attacked by S-Snake. York, as part of the plan, approached S-Snake and allowed herself to be caught by the petrification. S-Snake then kicked her aside and attacked the rest of the group, leading to their separation from York.


Later, when unpetrified by S-Snake, York secretly followed Shaka to Vegapunk's prison. There, she shot Shaka in the head with a pistol, revealing herself as the traitor. York proclaimed her desire to be the sole Vegapunk and a future World Noble.


York, overwhelmed by the Straw Hat Pirates and their allies, was subdued and chained to the ground. Usopp arranged a call between her and the Five Elders, where she agreed to create another Mother Flame for them, provided they didn't harm her, destroy her lab, and make her a World Noble.

After the Elders agreed, York lost her composure, hysterically begging to be rescued from the Straw Hats. When assaulted by Nami, she boasted about the lab's security, claiming nobody could escape as long as the Frontier Dome was active. However, Vegapunk, Edison, and Atlas managed to crack the code.


York’s Personality


Initially, York seems lazy and loves to eat and sleep. She acts carefree and absent-minded, often talking about these things. But, in reality, she's selfish and scheming. She wants to become a World Noble, even if it means betraying her fellow Vegapunks.

York believes only one Vegapunk is needed and is willing to get rid of the others for her own gain. She doesn't care about causing harm or casualties for her goals and is cowardly and spiteful when defeated.

She wears a purple top with "Punk-06" written on it, an orange jacket, purple bikini bottoms, black gloves, orange boots with striped socks, and red goggles on her forehead.


When she eats a lot, she becomes grows huge, but she can quickly go back to her normal size after going to the bathroom.


York’s Abilities


As a Vegapunk satellite, York likely contributes to technological advancements. Her main role involves eating, sleeping, and defecating for other satellites. Despite appearing passive, she is cunning and deceptive, orchestrating incidents without detection.


York can replicate the Mother Flame, making her valuable to the World Government. She is also skilled with firearms, as shown when she shoots Shaka in the head from a distance.
