Bluejam was a rather tall man with short hair on the top of his head, that is fashioned in a striped manner, while the hair flowed down long and unkempt down his sides. It seemed half of his molars were missing in an alternating pattern, and he wore a traditional captain's jacket over a white shirt.
Bluejam was a cruel pirate, who murdered his own subordinate for failure. He was also deceptive as he claimed that he liked strong people which incited Ace and Luffy into his crew. However, this was only part of his ploy to use them to load explosives into the Gray Terminal, and then tying them down to leave them to die in the flames after they refused to join his crew.
On top of this, his most defining character trait was his wish to become a Noble, for the wealth and the life would grant him. When the King of the Goa Kingdom promised to make him a noble if he would burn down the Gray Terminal and kill its inhabitants, he quickly agreed. This proved to be his downfall, as he was betrayed and left to die with the other inhabitants.
Bluejam also believed that on the battlefield the only ones who survived were the strong and cowardly.
Abilities and PowersEdit
Bluejam was a well-known pirate in the East Blue, whose feared reputation had been remarked by many characters since his first appearance. He was shown to have a strong will, appearing unaffected by Ace's burst of Haki, while his entire crew fainted.
Bluejam was seen using a flintlock when shooting Porchemy to death, and also wielded a rifle during the arson of the Gray Terminal. He was later armed with a long, standard pirate sabre, which he seemed quite proficient in wielding, as he was able to draw it and parrying Curly Dadan's attack in mere seconds.
Contract with Goa KingdomEdit
Both Portgas D. Ace and Sabo steal Bluejam's money to buy a pirate ship. After Porchemy's defeat at the hands of Ace and Sabo, Bluejam shot Porchemy dead. Later, Sabo's father paid him and his crew to find his son for him so he could return home to live with his family. He was also ordered to "take care" of Ace and Monkey D. Luffy so that they could never see Sabo again.
Instead of killing Ace and Luffy right away he convinced them to help him move some cargo boxes to marked points in a map, which in fact contained explosives and oil that would be used to start a fire that would kill everyone in Trash Mountain. Bluejam was promised by the King of Goa Kingdom that if he succeeded, he would be made a noble. However, once the plan was in operation, Bluejam and his pirates were deceived and left outside the Great Gate to die in the fire they themselves created.
They were also used as the scapegoats for who caused the fire all on their own, ironically believing they did so to prevent the World Nobles from visiting. He attempted to come back to his boat, but it was caught up in flames as well, but then he spots Ace and Luffy, and said he would kill them if they did not tell him the location of their treasure. Ace tells him, and Bluejam's crew try to take Ace and Luffy with them, but are stopped by Dadan and her family of Mountain Bandits.
They manage to escape, but Ace stays to fight him, and so does Dadan for being responsible for Ace. He was ultimately defeated by the two. It is unknown what happened to him afterwards, but he most likely died due to the fire started by his crew.
Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit
The anime shows his defeat in more detail, where it is shown that during the fight Bluejam was overpowering the two of them; however, Ace managed to strangle him while Dadan gave him a beating. The fight presumably left Bluejam unconscious and he likely perished in the fire.
