"Desert Prince" Al Rauf Najeem is a member of the Xros Pirates with the designation "Omega" (Ωω). Among his closest of associates, Najeem is more commonly identified by the alias of "Honey Boo Boo".
Najeem is a tall man with tan skin and orange hair that flows down his backside with bangs framing both sides of his face. He has glinted light blue eyes and a scar running through his left eye, which he received from Baghatur Atraxias. He has the Greek letter Omega tattooed on his upper-back.
During the Battle for Bedina, Najeem was seen sporting a red jacket which he kept unzipped to show off his bare torso, as well as a pair of yellow trousers that stuck skin tight to his frame and that were folded above his ankles.
He normally keeps his sword sheathed and balances it against his shoulder in some way or the other.
Najeem is an especially self centered man, kicking out hundreds of people from a movie theater so as to have the pleasure of being the first to see it on the day of its much anticipated premier. He remained inside the theater by his lonesome long after the credits of the film had concluded, electing to take a lengthy nap even in spite of the fact that there was a large crowd waiting outside of the theater doors anxious to watch it for themselves. He feels as though he is permitted to cut much of anyone when it comes to standing in line, evident when he helped himself to the food of a child who had been waiting for his meal in front of an open kitchen.
When it comes to his responsibilities as a pirate of high authority within the Xros Pirates, Najeem appears to be somewhat dismissive, shrugging off a potential call to duty in favor of enjoying a film.
He is a vicious man in every facet of the word, killing a Den Den Mushi by biting its throat to ensure that he wouldn't be interrupted further by the ringing of another call while watching a film. He brutally "fed" a child a sandwich by throwing it on the ground and then repeatedly smashing his face against it after the boy had accused Najeem of stealing the food he had paid for himself.
As of late, Najeem has come to loathe those whom look down upon the Xros Pirates, particularly due to the rumors concerning a Yonko alliance being made in order to defeat them. He especially hates being looked down upon and underestimated, as he firmly stated during his beating of Fukuoka Soren.
Abilities and Powers Edit
As one of the Xros Pirates' heavyweights, Najeem possesses a large degree of authority within the Yonko Pirate Crew. His bounty of 320,000,000 proves that the World Government views him as a serious threat. Among the entirety of the Xros Pirates, it is said that Najeem is the very best at conquering islands, amounting an impressive streak of conquering them without fail, attributing to his epithet.
Physical Abilities Edit
Najeem is physically very strong, overpowering Regin in his Antaeus Form, despite the latter being a castle-sized golem made out of rock. Two years ago, his speed proved to be so immense that Draco D. Damon, a member of the Seven Deadly Sins, was forced to keep up his guard for an extensive duration of time while awaiting the arrival of Baghatur Atraxias.
Devil Fruit Edit
- Main Article: Sute Sute no Mi
Najeem ate the Sute Sute no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to create hologram projections of himself and various others, including inanimate objects. By making hologram projections of Reach, Michael D. Shiguma, and several other high ranking members of the Xros Pirates, backed up by a thousand ship fleet, Najeem conquered countless islands in Shiguma's name. For this reason he is considered the best in the Yonko Crew at conquering territory.
- Spotlight (てんこう(点光) Tenkō?): Najeem puts his hands up to his face, generating a blinding flash of light. It illuminates the world around him, rendering the surrounding vicinity a blank canvas, as everything turns white, to the point where even haki auras are hard to perceive. It was first seen being used by Najeem in order to flee Asha after Baghatur Atraxias had interrupted his battle with Draco D. Damon and Regin.
Further Information: Haki
Najeem demonstrated the use of Busoshoku Haki when he hardened his body in an attempt to resist a punch from Regin's massive Antaeus Form. He appears to be quite skilled in using this variation of Haki, as its usage spanned the course of his body without showing any signs of exhaustion on his part.
- Open White (オープンホワイト Oupun Howaito?): One of Najeem's strongest attacks. Solidifying the entirety of his body with Haki, Najeem's flesh and skin becomes entirely black. He then spins around and around at incredibly rates, blitzing towards his enemy and seeking to crash into them to deliver great amounts of damage. This attack proved to be strong enough to destroy the head of Regin's Antaeus Form and send Draco D. Damon flying many yards away, despite the latter having braced himself with the application of his own Haki.
- Skycloth (スカイクロス Sukai Kurosu?): Najeem coats his upper body in Haki, turning it black with Busoshoku. He then twirls himself around, spinning faster and faster until emanating a vicious slash orientated, projectile-based attack that flies through the air en route to his opponent. It was strong enough to obliterate one of Regin's stone arms while the latter was in his Antaeus Form.
- Safety Curtain (セーフカーテン Seefu Kaaten?): After imbuing his fists with Haki, Najeem leaps forward and swings forward a devastating punch. First shown during his battle with Draco D. Damon and Regin on Asha, the punch proved capable enough to be able to clash with the force of Regin's castle-sized Antaeus Form.
The Reign of the Desert Prince Edit
In the year of 1575, Najeem went on a historic run, leading a fleet of ships in the name of his captain, Michael D. Shiguma to improbable success. Through a combination of his leadership and prowess, Najeem conquered countless islands for the Xros Pirates, earning the title of "Desert Prince" as a result. However, through his voyage, there were two such islands that Najeem ultimately failed to conquer: Dressrosa and Asha, respectively.
During his preliminary attempt to take over Asha, Najeem encountered Baghatur Atraxias of the Seven Deadly Sins. In their battle, Atraxias uncovered the mystery behind Najeem's Devil Fruit powers, and left a scar upon Najeem's left eye. Najeem ultimately escaped with his life, however failed to claim Asha as a part of the Xros Pirates' territory.
Battle for Bedina Edit
A month prior to the Titan Pirates' arrival onto Bedina, Najeem fought and defeated Daryal, a member of the Fire Rocker Pirates and several of his Okama allies from the Kamabakka Kingdom that had come to Bedina seeking refuge from Frederick Barbarossa. Daryal and his comrades were thrown into the Bedina Dungeon, and from that point on Najeem made frequent visits to torture them personally.
On the opening of Nectar Ellis' new film, Najeem walked through the doors of the Bedina theater and commanded that everyone present leave so that he could enjoy watching it by himself. Unbeknownst to him, as he watched the movie, Fukuoka Soren was spying on him through the vents. He received a call from Barney Kettle during the film's interval, yet hung up on his comrade abruptly stating that he didn't want to be bothered at the current moment. To ensure that no one else would be able to call him, he bit his Den Den Mushi by its throat, killing it.
Najeem stayed inside of the theater long past the film's credits, deciding to take a nap, even in spite of the hundreds of people who were waiting to watch the film after him. He slept for a solid ten hours before waking up, at which point he took to the streets to find something to eat. Seeing a long line waiting in front of an open kitchen, Najeem cut in front of a small child and took his sandwich. After the boy had thrown a tantrum over his stolen sandwich, an agitated Najeem dropped the sandwich to the ground and repeatedly smashed his face against it, telling him to "eat."
