Abilities and Powers

History

Past

At some point in his life, Kureyo was sentenced as a criminal and imprisoned on Level 5 of Impel Down.

Impel Down Arc

Due to the freezing temperatures of Level 5, Kureyo froze inside the cell. His cellmate commented that he was either dead or “preserved for the future”.

Trivia

  • His name is likely a pun on “Kairo kure yo” (懐炉くれよ?, meaning “give me a hand warmer”).
  • Stephen Paul, the official VIZ translator, informally translated Kureyo’s name as “Spara Heetpack”. This translation was later used in the 7th popularity poll.
