Kurozumi Higurashi is linked to Shiki and the Rocks Pirates!


Kurozumi Higurashi was a member of the Kurozumi Family and a major supporter of Kurozumi Orochi.


Several decades before the present, Higurashi had witnessed the Kurozumi Family head’s unsuccessful attempt to become the next shogun by poisoning his fellow daimyo, and be sentenced to commit seppuku. As the Kurozumi Family lost their status and became targets for persecution, Higurashi left Wano Country for a time and according to herself, faced many hardships then.

She eventually returned to Wano over 41 years ago, where she found Kurozumi Orochi, the grandson of the treasonous family leader. She explained to him what happened with his grandfather, blaming Kozuki Sukiyaki for being born and preventing the Kurozumi Family from taking power.


She instructed Orochi to gather up gold and start manufacturing weapons in order to become shogun, offering him the Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Yamata no Orochi if he obeyed.


Higurashi ate the Mane Mane no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that enabled her to perfectly replicate other people’s appearances. She used this fruit to deceive the Wano administration by posing as Kozuki Oden and Sukiyaki and using their likenesses to promote Orochi.

Higurashi said that she has travelled alot in her life. This shows that she probably has basic knowledge about the World Government, notorious pirates, etc… Second, she had the ability to mimic Shiki’s face.

This is where things start to get spicy. What if she was part of Rocks Pirates crew?

That would explain why she could touch Shiki’s face and why she knew Kaido.
