Capone Bege

Capone "Gang" Bege is a mafia don-like pirate who hails from West Blue. He is the captain of the Firetank Pirates and also one of twelve pirates who are referred to as "The Worst Generation" (formerly known as "The Eleven Supernovas"). Currently, he and his crew are working under the Big Mom Pirates. Sometime during the timeskip, his bounty increased from Beli138,000,000 to Beli300,000,000. Bege is a short man with a stocky build whose appearance is somewhat similar to that of a Mafia boss. He sports an oiled-up and slicked-back hairstyle befitting that of a crime don. His facial features have a very stern look to them further accentuated by his rather sharp but hooking beak-like nose. He also has five o'clock stubble on his upper lip.

He wears a black-and-white pinstriped attire, complete with a green scarf around his neck, with the excess tucked inside the suit (making it look like a cravat). Like Crocodile, Bege wears very expensive golden rings with precious stones mounted on them, but because Bege has two hands, all his fingers (including the thumbs) have them. As for his personal effects, he has a pirate captain's coat with red and gold trimming and a western style cowboy hat, both of which he only seems to wear for traveling purposes. He has been seen smoking a cigar. As a child, he had curlier hair and a shorter and rounder head. He wore a shirt and tie. He was also depicted as playing with guns, knives, and a fortress made of blocks, referencing his Devil Fruit abilities. After the timeskip, he has a thick goatee and a darker hat. During the Zou Arc, he sported a pair of sunglasses resembling those worn by Pekoms. Bege is a man of gentlemanly behavior and mannerisms. He is appalled by things like bad table manners and rudeness. He usually maintains a reserved and calm demeanor almost to the point of being cultured and sophisticated. However, he can be very impatient and ill-tempered and is not at all above injuring others, even his own crew, should they provoke his ire even the slightest as shown when he struck a crewmember with a fork without so much as an apology. For so long as he is not agitated, he appears to be a pirate who prefers to avoid making a scene whenever as possible in order to not confront enemies that he might view as troublesome, such as Admiral Kizaru and the Mink Tribe. However, when he does engage in battle, he tends to just walk into danger on his own, since he can easily summon numerous subordinates at any time and place to fight on his behalf. It also seems to be for this reason that he appears to view his crew as somewhat expendable, made apparent by the fact he did not seemed bothered about smoking them out despite their protests. Bege appears to be very cunning and pragmatic, not being above taking hostages, bluffing or shooting people in the back in order to accomplish his goals. He also has a low opinion on emotions and feelings, which he thinks turn people into cowards. As such, he ends up being intolerant of people who put their personal feelings on the way of missions, viewing them as pathetic and useless. After the timeskip, he and his crew became subordinates of the Big Mom Pirates. He is shown to carry missions seriously, and is willing to shoot down any hindrance that might compromise said missions. He is shown to be ruthless even toward his own allies, as he was willing to shoot Pekoms, a senior member of the Big Mom Pirates, for offering to let the Straw Hats go as a reward for saving his people, something Bege saw as weakness making him undeserving of serving the crew.

Bege uses tactics and trickery, rather than direct physical combat, in battle. He is a master of bluffing, as he was able to trick Caesar Clown into surrendering himself with false death threats. He also uses his Devil Fruit abilities to launch ambushes and surprise attacks. Bege ate the Shiro Shiro no Mi, a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit which allows him to maintain a fortress inside his body. He can house a massive force of subordinates within his body, as well as horses and cannons. He manifests these objects outside his body by first manifesting ports and drawbridges on his person through which his "troops" could come out. His insides also appear to that of a literal fortress, featuring stone brick rooms as well as drawbridges that can open and close, again putting into question whether Bege creates them at will or that his body truly does function like a fortress and has people run around his body at all times. When the objects and people within him reach a certain distance away from his body, shown by a pinkish layer of an unknown aura centered on Bege's location, they revert to full size, resulting in large cannon volleys and cavalry seemingly popping out of nowhere from one man. Bege has a spear made of Seastone which he had one of his subordinates use in order to restrain Caesar Clown. Bege and Pekoms arrived on Zou eight days later with the intention of capturing Caesar and bringing Sanji to Big Mom's tea party. However, when Pekoms discovered that his homeland had been destroyed and the Straw Hats had saved it, he agreed to spare the Straw Hats in gratitude. However, Bege got annoyed that Pekoms was letting his emotions overrule their mission and used his Devil Fruit powers to shoot the mink in the back. Bege sent his men out of his body and they captured Sanji's group and Caesar. He took the chained pirates inside his body and gave them an invitation to Big Mom's wedding tea party. In it, her 35th daughter, Purin, would marry Sanji, the third son of the Vinsmoke Family. Sanji fell into great shock with his cigarette falling out of his mouth as his jaw dropped. Sanji's lit cigarette ignited Bege's castle floor, alarming Bege. In a huff, Bege immediately stomped out the flames, yelling at Sanji for starting a fire in his castle. Sanji then questioned Bege about the arranged marriage and attempted to decline the invitation. Bege, not taking "no" for an answer, demonstrated that resistance was futile, showing that he can control everything in his body. Once Bege and Vito implied that they knew a secret concerning Sanji, he decided to be compliant with Big Mom's invitation. After allowing Sanji to write a note for the other Straw Hats, Bege was taken by surprise when Sanji threw Nami, Chopper, and Brook out of Bege's body. Sanji then held Caesar at gunpoint to prevent Bege's crew from going after his comrades. Noticing Nekomamushi standing behind him, Bege fled with Sanji and Caesar in tow.
