"Draco D. Damon" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
- —Mr. Draco
"Asura" Draco D. Damon, commonly known due to his unique powers, is a rogue Pirate and the one framed for murdering the King of the Asha Kingdom. Previously, he was the Wrath (ラース Rāsu) of the Seven Deadly Sins, an elite team of soldiers within the Kingdom, and served as a Martial Arts apprentice to the Marine Bambina.
Damon is thought to be affiliated with the Titan Pirates crew, led by one of the Yonko, and is regarded as the fool responsible for another of Mengis' demotion. Ever since embarking on a journey Apu to search for Montblanc Burling, Damon has further gained notoriety, warranting a position as one of the Horsemen, alongside Apu, Fukuoka Soren, and Benjamin Tabart.
Unknown to most, Damon is a member of the Oni Tribe. He seeks finding the answers about the events on his life, most importantly his framing of the Asha King's assassination. Currently, Damon holds a Bounty of 330,000,000.
Somewhat relaxed and carefree, nevertheless never letting his guard down, Damon is a tall and muscular young man, who usually bears a neutral expression. His skin is white and offers a constrast with his deep black hair, which is his his most recognizable feature.
As mentioned, his hair contrasts with his skin and has a spiky style, mostly kept in a wild and messy manner, being framed over a good portion of his face, specifically the middle and the borders, and reaching down to his nose and covering msot of his forehead. The eyebrows are thin and sharp, being more prominent at the nose's area. His black eyes have a slight blue tone to them, and generally offer a soft glance. Damon's face has a straight, yet somewhat round triangular shape, matching the sharpness of his eyes and hair. Oddly enough, after staying dormant inside Tabart's vines and receiving quite some stress from his fight with Najeem, part of Damon's hair became greyer.
He is somewhat tall, standing at 6'0" feet and weighting 160 pounds. With these being relative to each other, Damon is also well built, possessing defined legs, arms, shoulders, something which isn't left for imagination as he regularly stays shirtless.
Damon's body is prominently filled with several scars. One in the left side of his forehead, just above his eye, courtesy of Mengis, although it is usually covered by his hair. Another takes the form of a large diagonal gash, located on the right side of his stomach, and being work of Trickshot, later on, it becomes an X due to his fight with Gambi Marlow.
Born a member of the Oni Tribe, Damon has access to his true form, used as if it was some sort of transformation. His skin gains a deep blue tone and a scaly texture, while several claws appear on top of his nails, at both his feet and hands. Similarly, the sclera of his eyes goes from white to slightly blue. Furthermore, his teeth become incredibly sharp. Most notably, however, are the blue curved horns sticking out of his forehead.
As a signature from Asha, Damon possesses a tribal tattoo on his right arm, which is dark and has a distinctive shape. At the forearm, there are three "V" shaped bands circling around, with a dot interrupting the cycle of the lower band and being surrounded by an upsilon. From that lower part, wing-like extensions sprout from and go around Damon's elbow and biceps.
He always wears a silver necklace, which has a sword as its pendant, whereas the sword has a blue stone in its handle. For the set of clothes he uses the most, Damon is actually quite simplistic, even staying shirtless. He wears white, jeans-like pants, held tight by a black belt which possesses several extensions that wrap around the thighs in zig-zag. The ends of the pants are tucked inside a pair of simple black boots, which reach below his knees. Included in his signature appearance, Damon uses his powers to sprout two additional sets of arms above his normal ones, leading to his epithet.
When dressed for cooking, Damon also has a signature outfit, though, not a full one. He takes off whatever shirt he may be wearing and wraps it around his waist, covering the back of his baggy pants. However, the striking change in appearance comes in the form of an exotic-designed headband-cloth, which Damon covers most of his head with. Wearing it is a symbol of Damon's self-taught cooking skills.
During his stay at Ishitani Island, Damon dresses sinisterly, wearing ragged and bloody clothes. These clothes are all dark-brown and take the form of a very large cloak which is long enough to reach his ankles, and cover most of his figure, including his face, but neither his hands nor feet. The clothing around the face has several eyes which allow him to see normaly and is scarlet, due to Damon coughing blood, while the hood ends in a pointy manner. A white sash is tied around them, going from the right shoulder to left arm, its knot visible near the left breast.
After getting helped by the Princess, Damon adorns a new set of clothes. It consists of a tight, dark blue shirt which covers part of his neck and has short sleeves, along with a brown, corset-like piece around his lower torso and straps which cross over his chest all the way to his backside. The pants are formal, slightly loose and grey, having several black stripes placed vertically throughout them and being held by a black belt. The shoes are simple and have a brown color. However, the shirt gets torn away soon during a fight.
For his fight alongside Apu at Bedina Island, Damon changes into a simpler set of clothes. He takes to wearing no shirt, but, uses a pair of dark trousers, which are held up by a white belt and possess white stripes crossing over and around the thighs' area. Damon's boots are dark and reach up the middle of his lower leg, having white soles. Coincidentially, these seem like a color swap of his general outfit.
Major Battles Edit
Originally, the ideas surrounding Damon's character, while somewhat the same, still differed greatly from the current ones.
He was set to be way younger, five years even, and part of the Pirate Crew named as "Fang Pirates". Instead of coming from the "Asha Kingdom", Damon came from the "Asha Tribe", a group of warriors that hailed from "Gaea Island". His mother's name was "Angela" and not Draco D. Helena, also being raised by both her and the Ashanian Army, rather than just the latter.
