Morley

Morley

Morley of Fur is a giant and a newkama, as well as the commander of the West Army in the Revolutionary Army.

Morley’s existence was first alluded by Emporio Ivankov during the Impel Down Arc, as the one responsible for the creation of Newkama Land.

Appearance

Morley is a very hairy and portly giant. She has a Fu Manchu mustache and a shaggy chinstrap beard.

She wears very little clothing, only wearing a short plaid skirt in addition to belts around her arms, a flower symbol on her left forearm, dark gloves, a dark bowler hat with frilly goggles on it, and a weapons pack. Belo Betty describes her as looking like a “potato giant”.

Personality

As a newkama, Morley speaks in a very polite and feminine manner. She usually has a very jovial attitude and dislikes those who are unnecessarily violent. When she sees people paying attention to her, she constantly wonders if it is because they have a crush on her, not knowing why they would do so otherwise. However, she does not seem too fond of others being attracted to her, having been grossed out when Betty jokingly implied that the men of the Peachbeard Pirates had a crush on her.

Her loyalty to Dragon was shown when she refused to tell Admirals Ryokugyu and Fujitora where Dragon was.

Like many other people, she has her own unique laugh: “Fuhahaha” (フハハハ?).

Abilities and Powers

As an executive of the Revolutionary Army, Morley holds a powerful position in the organization, and as the commander of the West Army, she has full control over the soldiers in it. Donquixote Doflamingo even pictured her as one of the key figures in the Revolutionary Army. The World Government has given her a bounty of 293,000,000, showing how dangerous a threat to them she is.

She is a capable fighter as she was able to fight against Admiral Ryokugyu during the latest Levely and managed to get out safely and unharmed.

Physical Abilities

As a giant, Morley possesses tremendous physical strength and a longer lifespan when compared to humans. Because of her size, she is able to move very large sections of the ground with her Devil Fruit power.

Weapons

Morley wields a large harpoon-trident hybrid, which she uses in conjunction with her Devil Fruit power to move the ground.

Devil Fruit

Further information: Oshi Oshi no Mi

Morley ate the Oshi Oshi no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows her to push and mold the ground as if it were made of clay. Using this power, she can easily move underground, as well as attack enemies by pushing clumps of ground onto them, as it seems to otherwise maintain its original weight and hardness.

Haki

Main article: Haki

Morley possesses the ability to use Busoshoku and Kenbunshoku Haki.

History

Past

Over 100 years before the start of the story, Morley was a wanted pirate who was imprisoned at Impel Down. Using her Devil Fruit, she managed to escape the prison, a fact that remained unknown for a long time, allowing the prison to keep its status as being unbreakable until Shiki’s escape many years later. The tunnels Morley carved with her Devil Fruit abilities would later be known as the Level 5.5, which housed the Newkama Land. At some point after this, she joined the Revolutionary Army. Four years ago, on the Wind Granma, Morley, Belo Betty, and Gambo greeted Kuma after his travels.

Whole Cake Island Saga

Levely Arc

Morley and her fellow executives Belo Betty, Lindbergh, and Karasu came to the Lulusia Kingdom to save it from the pillaging Peachbeard Pirates. Morley emerged from the ground and confronted the pirates, pushing the ground toward them and forcing them back. With the help of the citizens who were empowered by Belo Betty’s Devil Fruit power, the pirates were easily defeated, and the executives headed to Momoiro Island to discuss the Revolutionary Army’s upcoming declaration of war against the World Nobles.

After the meeting at Momoiro Island, Morley accompanied Sabo, Lindbergh, and Karasu to the Red Port. There, they secretly advanced toward Mary Geoise along with several royals heading to the Levely. While hiding underground, the executives discussed saving Kuma from his enslavement to the World Nobles.

Wano Country Arc

On the fourth day of the Levely, the four declared war by destroying the Celestial Dragons’ symbol and attacking Mary Geoise. There, the admirals Fujitora and Ryokugyu arrived, and Morley fought against the latter.

Later, Morley arrived at the Socializing Plaza, where she emerged from the ground and grabbed Kuma. After Karasu arrived with the keys to the slave cuffs, Morley retreated, sinking back into the ground.

With the exception of Sabo, the revolutionaries (including Morley) escaped Mary Geoise and returned to Momoiro Island.

Final Saga

Egghead Arc

Back on Momoiro Island, Morley and the other revolutionaries were relieved to hear that Sabo was still alive, despite the newspaper reporting that he had assassinated Nefertari Cobra. As Dragon went to interrogate Kuma, Sabo called the other revolutionaries and denied killing Cobra, much to Morley’s relief. Sabo attempted to report what he had seen in Pangaea Castle, but the World Government cut off the signal and destroyed the Lulusia Kingdom. Morley was extremely relieved when Sabo returned to Momoiro Island with the survivors of Lulusia Kingdom.
