"Shark Cutter" Bastille[3][2] is a giant[3][4] and a Marine vice admiral.

AppearanceEdit

Bastille as a Young Marine

Bastille in his youth as a Marine.

Bastille is the shortest giant[3] vice admiral, and is not a part of the Giant Squad. He wears a gray metal mask with fourteen (ten in the anime before the timeskip) eye-holes and two long, curved bull horns. His long orange hair falls to the front of his chest and the rest of his hair can be seen going down his back. As with many high-ranking officers, he wears a double-breasted suit with a blue shirt and black tie, and the military overcoat draped over his shoulders, and a chain around the neck area.

In his youth, his hair and the horns on his mask are much shorter, while there are only twelve eye-holes on the mask.[5]

Despite being referred to as a giant,[3] Bastille is very short in size, being almost as tall as Dalmatian in his hybrid form.[1]

PersonalityEdit

As a Marine, he likely holds a strong belief in justice. Whether he believes in moral justice or absolute justice, however, is not known as of yet. He is also rather displeased with junior colleagues who he believes to act rashly. He also has a tendency to end his sentences with "-dara"[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As a Marine vice admiral, Bastille has authority over lower-ranking subordinates.

WeaponsEdit

Bastille carries a large sword with a Japanese hilt wrapped in a pink material, similar to Vice Admiral Strawberry's. It has an elongated hand-guard decorated by a red jewel, like the pommels, and a blade with a rounder curve than those of katanas. However, he has not been seen using it.

After the time skip, in Dressrosa, he carries a large zanbato, with a design similar to a cleaver,[2] called the Same-kiri Bocho. It was broken by Sabo.[6]

In the anime while confronting Franky at the Toy House he was shown using a Flying Slash Attack against him, although the cyborg easily blocked it. Then before he was defeated by Sabo he attempted to cut him and his sword swings alone easily sliced through nearby buildings.

HakiEdit

It was stated that all vice admirals possess Haki,[7] so Bastille can also use the ability. However, he has not yet been shown using it.

HistoryEdit

Marineford ArcEdit

When the execution of Portgas D. Ace was announced, Bastille reported to the summoning of the Marines to reinforce Marineford. Later, he was seen with his fellow vice admirals lined up and ready to fight the Whitebeard Pirates.[1]

When the Blackbeard Pirates arrived, Bastille was seen behind Strawberry, shocked to see Marshall D. Teach's new crewmates, the prisoners from level 6 of Impel Down.[8]

After Shanks arrived and called for a ceasefire, Bastille stood down along with the other Marines.[9]

Dressrosa ArcEdit

Bastille and a large assembly of Marines gathered outside Corrida Colosseum, waiting to ambush and arrest criminals as they leave. He was confused as to why none of the losers from blocks A and B had left yet. When a Marine told him that Vice Admiral Maynard was undercover as a fighter inside but cannot be contacted, Bastille criticized the junior vice admiral for acting on his own and concluded that something strange is probably going on in the Colosseum.[2]

A Marine reported that a suspicious looking man they had seen before was indeed "Pirate Hunter" Zoro and the other man with him was most likely "Straw Hat" Luffy. Bastille concluded that the reason the fighter Lucy is so powerful is because he is in fact Monkey D. Luffy, realizing the pirate is in the country after all. Rather than go after them, Bastille decided to leave them alone for the time being, saying that if they make a move now, all the other criminals in the colosseum will make a mad dash for the door, and they could lose their target amidst the chaos. Having apparently forgotten about the criminals, Bastille wondered who they were there to arrest.[10]

A destructive fight nearby caught Bastille's attention and he and his subordinates watched in shock as Donquixote Doflamingo shot Trafalgar Law multiple times in the chest.[10]

He then watched as Zoro and Kin'emon rushed Doflamingo to save Law. He was about to take action, but Issho arrived on the scene. Once Issho and Doflamingo left with an unconscious Law, the Marines began pursuing Luffy, Zoro, and Kin'emon.[11]

When Block D reached its conclusion, Bastille told his troops about the story of the Kamaitachi of Rommel, which is Hakuba, Cavendish's alter-ego that surfaces whenever Cavendish falls asleep. He also informed them that Hakuba would be chased out to sea after committing his crimes, but Cavendish was the one who became a pirate himself. Bastille told them not to pity him since Cavendish enjoys all the fame he received. He commented that Hakuba is even stronger than Cavendish, but his predisposition to fall back asleep was quite unsuitable for a contest-style match.[12]

While Franky was battling against Senor Pink and Machvise, Bastille and his men surround the toy house in an attempt to arrest Franky.[13]

Bastille was later seen with Issho as all the toys transformed back into their original forms, causing a widespread panic.[14]

As his Marine troops panicked about being unable to contact headquarters, Bastille watched as Doflamingo trapped Dressrosa in his "bird cage".[15]

After Doflamingo forced everyone into a survival game, Issho ordered Bastille to not capture Doflamingo and to tell all squads to focus on stopping the civilians from hurting each other. Issho clarified that the Straw Hats and Law are their main targets.[16]

When Maynard left the colosseum to report to his colleagues, Bastille scolded him for acting on his own before Maynard explained about discovering Doflamingo's connection with the underworld.[17]

Bastille, Issho, and an army of Marines were later stationed at the base of the new King's Plateau apparently to hinder the Straw Hats from reaching Doflamingo. However, while Luffy and his allies from the colosseum were charging up the new King's Plateau, the Marines were confronted by Sabo.[18]

Bastille Defeated by Sabo

As Sabo fought and overpowered more Marines, Bastille ordered them not to attack Sabo head on. Bastille then charged at Sabo himself, but the revolutionary effortlessly shattered his sword right before dealing the finishing blow to the vice admiral.[6]

Three days after Doflamingo's defeat, the Marines were mobilized to pursue Luffy and his allies. After hearing that the Straw Hats were heading for the eastern port, Bastille ordered reinforcements to be send there.[19]

To Bastille's frustration, he received word of how the Marines were unable to send reinforcements due to complications such as stolen weapons, ships stitched together, and troops collapsing. Bastille then witnessed Issho using his gravity ability to lift all the rubble from Dressrosa in preparation to attack Luffy's allies at the eastern port.[20]
