Cultures/TraditionsEdit

When there's a dispute and neither side will yield...The god of Elbaf decides the matter. Our god protects the one who is right...and lets him live.
— Dorry explains Elbaf's customs to Luffy and Vivi.


As a kingdom, Elbaf is ruled by a monarchy. The kingdom's prince, Loki, has the privilege of proposing to one of the daughters of Charlotte Linlin, a hated person to all the world Giants, and as a result, agreed to make the kingdom's famed army her allies.

Elbaf has an army, which has gained fame for its strength.

Brogy and Dorry revealed that everyone in Elbaf heavily believes in honor.[5] If there was any sort of dispute or argument between any giants, the god of Elbaf would decide which one would die and one would survive.

Every year, the denizens hold a certain traditional festival known as the "Winter Solstice". As the name suggests, it is held during the end of the year to pay their gratitude to the sun. The citizens undergo fasting for 12 days, with only water to sustain them; prior to its start, they eat a huge quantity of Semla to gain enough nutrition for the next 12 days. After the fasting period, a huge festival would be held to celebrate. 63 years ago, during one particular Winter Solstice, Linlin's gluttonous desire for more Semla caused her to lose control on the 7th day, decimating an entire village on Elbaf in search for the sweet, which led her to be hated by every giant in the world as a result.[3]

Elbaf is also used as a term of pride (i.e. "I am the mightiest warrior from Elbaf!").

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

More than a 100 years before the current storyline, a pirate crew of giants from Elbaf was formed, led by Dorry and Brogy. They left Elbaf and caused enough turmoil in the world to have gained a bounty of Beli100 million each.[6]

63 years ago, a 5-years old Charlotte Linlin was abandoned on Elbaf by her parents due to the child's uncontrollable destructive tendencies causing her to be exiled from her own country. Her parents had hoped that "Holy Mother" Carmel would be able to give their daughter a better life.[3]

Although Carmel accepted Linlin into the Sheep's House, several rather nasty incidents arose from the child, such as Linlin accidentally killing a bear with a single strike, or inadvertently causing severe injury to the giant Eiri when trying to swat a mosquito on him. Regardless, the giants have accepted Linlin as a citizen, where she felt home due to her gigantic size for a human.[3]

Linlin Destroys Elbaf's Village

Linlin destroys Elbaf's Village.

However, 10 months after Linlin's arrival, during the Winter Solstice tradition, in which a 12-days fasting was to occur after partaking Semla (which Linlin nearly completely devoured all by herself), she lost control from hunger and desire for more Semla on the 7th day, causing her to devastate Elbaf's village. Elder warrior Jorl labelled her an evil spirit in the form of a child, and try to strike her down despite Carmel's pleas.[3] Sometime after that, the Holy Mother left Linlin.[2]

As a result of Linlin's violent actions, all the giants in the world, particularly the ones from Elbaf, came to hate her.

At a certain point, Loki, the prince of Elbaf, fell in love with Lola, the 23rd daughter of Linlin, at first sight and was arranged to marry her. However, Lola wanted to choose her own husband and escaped the wedding. Linlin tried to fool Loki by passing Lola's twin sister as Lola's stand-in. The ruse was discovered and the wedding was called off, further deepening the feud between Big Mom and the giants.

Post-Enies Lobby ArcEdit

After Oimo and Kashi discovered they were deceived by the World Government, they allied themselves with the Straw Hats-Galley-La-Franky Family alliance. They wanted Usopp to go with them to Elbaf, but Usopp decided to rejoin his friends.


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


Z's Ambition ArcEdit

When Usopp asks if Lily and her father were from Elbaf. She confirmed it and Usopp then told her that they were friends with Dorry and Brogy, which surprised her. She told Usopp that although she had never met Dorry and Brogy, they were legendary on Elbaf and that Panz Fry had been friends with them since they were all children and he talks about them all the time.


Concludes non-canon section.


Dressrosa ArcEdit

Hajrudin is a new generation giant from Elbaf, and he joined the Corrida Colosseum as a gladiator to compete for the Mera Mera no Mi, thinking that a giant with a Logia-type Devil Fruit would be worthy to rule above all giants.[7]

TriviaEdit

  • Elbaf is "fable" spelled backwards.
  • The culture appears to be based on that of medieval Scandinavia with references to Norse mythology.
    • Most of its known citizens resemble stereotypical depictions of vikings.
    • The large tree might be a reference to mythological Yggdrasil.
    • In real life, semla was also traditionally eaten before a time of fasting.
  • According to Jaguar D. Saul, not all giants are from Elbaf, and that he did not share the beliefs of the island's residents, to which he deemed "barbaric".
