Keith is a monkey mink and a member of the Guardians who protect the Mokomo Dukedom at night.


Keith is an average-sized monkey mink with a curled tail and brown fur. He wears a black suit with a black tie, a light-colored shirt, black pants, and a black top hat on his head. He also wears a red ascot and two black paw gauntlets on his hands.


Keith is extremely loyal to the Mokomo Dukedom and their allies, as shown by him willing to fight to the death against Jack and the Beasts Pirates.

Pre-Zou Arc

When Jack and the Beasts Pirates invaded the Mokomo Dukedom looking for Raizo, Keith and the Guardians raced in as night fell to fight in relief of the Inuarashi Musketeer Squad. The battle lasted five days, with the Guardians fighting during the night. Jack managed to defeat the minks by exposing them to the Koro gas, leaving the minks poisoned. However, two days later, some of the Straw Hat Pirates arrived on Zou just in time to prevent them from succumbing to the poison.

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

While Nami, Sanji, Chopper, Brook, and Caesar were working to treat all the minks on the island, Keith cheered them on alongside his comrades, Roddy and Blackback.
