One Piece is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. The series was serialized in Weekly Shonen. The anime adaptation of One Piece is made by Toei Animation Studios which produced some of the most popular anime like Dragon Ball, Digimon, etc. The series revolves around the concept of Pirates, Navy, Government and Treasury. Legendary pirate Gol D. Roger was kidnapped by the Navy and sentenced to public execution. Before dying, Gol D. Roger announced that he had left a great treasure somewhere at the end of the sea. Whoever finds it will become the Pirate King. This is where the new era of pirates began. Like others, Luffy, the main protagonist of the series, decided to become Pirate King and this is where the anime lays its foundation. Now back to our main point.
Luffy’s family: a strange lineage
Luffy’s family is not just the ordinary family but the family with the greatest warriors. Each member of Luffy’s family causes a bit of chaos and continues to do things to bring change to this world. This may be the effect of the lineage of D people, but it is something that has remained hidden from us for obvious reasons. Luffy’s father and grandfather are already revealed in the series and they are still alive and doing their business. Luffy’s mother is still unknown with no evidence to even predict certainties.
Luffy’s grandfather, Monkey D. Garp is the Vice Admiral of the Marines and one of the most powerful characters in the One Piece series. He deliberately rejected the title of Admiral as he did not want to work under the celestial dragons. Monkey D. Garp is the one who raised Luffy and Ace and trained them as children. Garp even motivated Luffy to become a Navy officer. Garp is indeed Marine’s hero and always fulfills his duty with loyalty and respect.
Luffy’s father, Monkey D.Dragon is another mysterious character in the series. Dragon is also declared as the worst criminal of the century as he is the leader of the revolutionary army. His powers and abilities are still unknown, but his power levels are sure to be on par with many pirates. Dragon’s crew includes some of the greatest pirates like Sabo and Kuma. Monkey D. Dragon even saved Luffy’s life once in Logue Town against Smoker. Some people claim that Dragon has the ability to alter the weather, but that’s just a prediction without solid context. There has been an attack on Dragon’s hideout, leaving his fate and health a mystery. However, Luffy’s mother is still unknown. She is expected to be someone important given Luffy’s background.
Ace, Sabo and Luffy are brothers from another mother. They grew up together and formed a relationship like the brothers. Unfortunately, Ace was killed on the battlefield, and Sabo and Luffy are the only two brothers left now. Luffy appears to be the only child with no known blood siblings.
