Not to be confused with Pudding's cafe of a similar name.

Mother Carmel is a mysterious person associated with Charlotte Linlin. Details about her are unknown; Capone Bege and Charlotte Chiffon guessed that she might be a benefactor of Big Mom that went missing.[2]

During every Tea Party, Big Mom places a picture of Carmel across from her at the table. If Carmel's picture is damaged, Big Mom will enter a psychological crisis, which will render her able to be physically injured.[2] Reportedly, this information is privy only to the Charlotte Family.[3]


In her portrait, Carmel is shown as an older woman with a large face and a square-shaped jawline. She has wavy light hair and wears lipstick. She wears dark robes similarly to nuns like Miss Catherina. She was seen holding a cigarette in her hand.[1]


Sixty-three years ago, she disappeared under unknown circumstances, leaving a five year old Charlotte Linlin crying on Elbaf.[4]


  • Carmel's name may be a reference to the Carmelites, a religious order known for selling sweets in Japan, which corresponds with Carmel's nun-like outfit and title of "Mother". The sweets connection also matches the Big Mom Pirates and Charlotte Family food theme.
