Jīngshén(せいしん;Shinsen) is an Vice Admiral of the Marines and also serves as the Base Commander of the G-5 Marine Base located in the New World. Famous for his intelligence collecting capabilities and his connection with the Marines strongest force, Cipher-Pol 0, Jīngshén is famous among Marines and Pirates alike as the Manipulator which apparently is also based around his Paramecia Devil Fruit,Awa Awa no Mi.
Jīngshén was born to Daz Noodles and Miàntiáo, two high-ranking Marine officers who wanted their son to follow their footsteps. Because of the daily routine of his parents, Jīngshén resided in a Marine Base near the Grandline since his childhood. Jīngshén's father, Daz Noodles, was a close associate of Vegapunk and Jīngshén grew up playing with the scientists advanced toys, that also slowly aided in Jīngshén's training. When Jīngshén was eight years old, an alliance of three Pirate Crews Mad Men, Sea Fools and Black Crow led by Gambi Russō, attacked the Marine Base where Jīngshén and his parents were stationed. The assault was Jīngshéns first close eye view of violence and chaos. The Sea Fools Pirates attempted to kidnap young Jīngshén who however was saved by the timely arrival of his father. The Incident later named Blue Maria caused the death of Daz Noodles and his Devil Fruit, the Fugu Fugu no Mi came under the possession of the Black Crow Pirates. The Blue Maria incident, became an event of defining justice to the young Jīngshén.
Few years after the Blue Maria incident, Jīngshén joined the Marine as a chore boy and thanks to his lifelong experience and influence with the Marines, he was promoted to an Warrant Officer title within a span of six months. During this time, Jīngshén was dispatched to South Blue in order to stop a major Pirate Alliance.Jīngshén actions in South Blue earned him a reputation from both Marines and Pirates alike.Sailing around five years in the South Sea, Jīngshén had dissolved around fifteen pirate crews even three pirate crews who called themselves Yonkō of the South(南の四皇).
During his time in South Blue, Jīngshén was given a tough task to arrest an emerging notorious Pirate Crew called the The Black Bandana Plunderers led by Darrel 'Iron Chest' Ethel. The Pirates had been given protection by a small island city off the coast of Briss Kingdom. Having no choice, Jīngshén plundered the whole city and captured the Pirates. The Marine Navigator at that time, Wynn Erin had opposed Jīngshén during the attack which led to some internal struggle. With Jīngshén's mood not swayed he continued with the search, calling Erin just a "helmsman" of the Marine Ship. After the incident, Jīngshén had noticed that this helmsman had run away with their ship, angering the "Marine".
For his notable achievements, Jīngshén was promoted to become a commander of a Marine Branch in South Blue. Jīngshén requested his transfer to the New World as he felt the pirates of the South Blue where boring. His request was however declined by the Marines. Angered by the decision, he refused to work for a week and when the superiors came to South Blue to punish him, he had disappeared from his Branch.
It was three weeks later, Jīngshén arrived at Marineford all the way in the New World, along with the dead bodies of all the members of the Black Crow pirates including the corpse of their captain and the murderer of Daz Noodles, Gambi Russō. When the Marines asked him about the stolen Ki Ki no Mi Devil Fruit, Jīngshén told them that the previous owner of the Spirit Fruit, the navigator of the Russō crew, Devereux 'Sour' Astley, had been killed and the fate of the fruit was unknown. For his actions, Jīngshén was promoted to become Captain of the G-8 Marine Base. Jīngshén withdrew the offer and asked them to relocate him to g-5 Marine Base.
His request was accepted and he became the Leader of Unit 5 of the Marine Base G-5 under the command of Vice-Admiral, Houghton 'Silver Teeth' Farnham (Ginha Farnham). Despite the insane behaviour of the G-5 Marines, the Sixth Unit immediately became the slave of the Ripple-man. During his jurisdiction, he was shocked to discover the truth of G-5 captain Ginha Farnham. The captain had earlier killed Devereux 'Sour' Astley and had the Spirit Fruit in his possession. Ginha Farnham was apparently in a deal with a pirate in the black market and also using many Marines of G-5 as illegal human experiments. Jīngshén uncovered this truth which had led to an Incident called Three Month Wave G-5, where fifteen marines would disappear from the Branch every fortnight. Jīngshén challenged his leader Houghton 'Silver Teeth' Farnham in a fight. Despite not being a Devil Fruit User, Jīngshén was simply overpowered by Silver Teeth's Devil Fruit. Using his last strength, Jīngshén stole a fruit in the ship despite not knowing its powers and fumbled up with the Bubble Fruit and ate it becoming a Sekken Human(石鹸人間; Sekken Ningen). With his new powers, Jīngshén caught up with Silver teeth's own powers and clashed until the Marine Officers arrived based on the request of the rest of the G-5 Marines excluding the Unit Captains. A further investigation in the matter was conducted and Houghton 'Silver Teeth' Farnham, along with leaders of Unit 1, Unit 2 and Unit 3 of the G-5 base were arrested for involving in the illegal activities. Jīngshén's involvement in the incident and efforts led to his promotion to Vice-Admiral and base leader of the 6-5 Marine Base.
Jīngshén is a fairly tall man with a height of six feet five inches and weighs about eighty kilograms. He has blue hair that covers his ears and is kept resembling a pineapple with bangs that cover his forehead. His Vice-Admiral coat is black in contrast to other white coats of the Marines, the back of the coat contains the kanji for Marine and G-5 in white text. He prefers not to wear a Marine cap because he wants to let his hair free from such imprisonment. Informally, Jīngshén wears a red T-shirt and white pants. The T-shirt as a yellow circle at its centre.
Jīngshén, an individual who was brought up around a Marine code, takes pride in it and knows his duty as a embodiment of justice. Donning his Marine Cape, Jīngshén comes of as a polite individual, who speaks only whenever it is his turn to do so and only speaks to the point until an explanation is asked of him. This personality doesn't hold true when something excites him, like a powerful enemy or a miraculous event, where he often becomes the first to joke around or insult anybody Marines or Pirates alike. This phenomenon as been termed by other Marines as the awakened Jīngshén. This awakening holds true when he is given leadership, as he gives off a large presence and bosses around whom he calls as his underlings.
As a Marines, Jīngshén is an enemy of the pirates, however, unlike several of them, he doesn't share a deep hatred against the criminals of the sea and finds some of their actions amusing enough to warrant their escape by giving away excuses to the higher-ups. Jīngshén like collecting information and confirms it as a great asset in his inventory, he as slowly let away many criminals from justice in exchange of information they may have, but not before analyzing the accuracy of the information. Despite this behaviour, Jīngshén is a valuable part of the Marines who consider him loyal enough to not betray the "pride of the marine code". Jīngshén however usually uses this reputation to collect information from many sources that are available only to the top.
During the battle, Jīngshén's personality often depends on the doriki and bounty of the individual, as he only "awakens" to those he finds worthy of his time and loses interest easily when facing against weaker opponents. He likes to "slowly" play with his prey and extracts information from them until he no longer needs anything from them before finally dealing the finishing blow.
Jīngshén is able to utilize different forms of Haki and it was partly this reason, that Jīngshén had risen in ranks among the Marines quickly, Jīngshén has unlocked the ability to use two different Haki's: Kenbunshoku Haki and Busoshoku Haki, while many people argue that he is able to use Haoshoku Haki, a rare Haki known by only one in a million people, after his promotion to G-5 as Base Leader and Vice Admiral of the Navy. Jīngshén has however rejected the claims and attributed the Haoshoku Haki technique as a part of his Devil Fruit powers.
Jīngshén possess Kenbunshoku Haki which allows him to sense the presence of others, even if they are concealed from view or too far to see naturally. For Jīngshén, Kenbunshoku Haki is nothing but natural instinct which makes him aware of everything around him passively, by sensing the aura of people, he can predict the next move even before it occurs. Adding to his Devil Fruit powers, Kenbunshoku Haki can allow Jīngshén to read the emotions of others, from detecting lies to uncovering murderous intent. This Haki along with his Devil Fruit Powers, have made Jīngshén a difficult person to land a hit, as shown when he was able to avoid a bullet shot at point-blank range.
