Short SummaryEdit

10 years ago, Arlong took a tribute from every adult and child in Cocoyasi Village as he declared it his property. Bell-mère could not pay for her and her two daughters. She sacrificed herself instead of admitting that the kids where not related to her.

Long SummaryEdit

In order to stay alive, every villagers had to pay Beli100,000 and Beli50,000 more per children to the Arlong Pirates. Everyone in Cocoyasi Village was able to pay and they were preparing to leave. However, one noticed Bell-mère's isolated house when he noticed smoke coming up from a chimney in the trees.

Genzo knew very well that she could not afford to pay such a high price. He asked her two kids, Nami and Nojiko, to flee and hide. When the Fishmen arrive at Bellemere's house, she attacked them. However, she was no match against their brute force. When Genzo told her about the pirate's demands. She agreed and gave Arlong Beli100,000. The pirates believe she was paying for herself, as one adult. But, as they are about to leave, she told them that the money was for her 2 daughters. She could not abandon them and after expressing her love to the two, they attempted to run to her side. She accepted her fate as Arlong raised his gun to her head and told them it would be a warning to all villagers who could not pay. A loud bang erupted and the two children buried their crying faces in horror as their mother was executed.
