Karasu is a tall, muscular, and bald man who wears half of a plague doctor mask on his face that acts as a loudspeaker. He wears an open dark feather coat similar to those worn by the Beast Pirates that leaves his chest exposed, dark pants, and a sash around his neck. His overall attire gives him a crow-like theme and appearance.
Karasu is a very quiet man who usually talks through inaudible mumbling and needs his loudspeaker mask to be heard by others. He does not appear to take kindly to people who react negatively to his mumbling, as veins bulged on his forehead in anger when Pinkbeard pointed it out. However, he also tends to be forgetful at times as he forgot to turn on his speaker, resulting in his mumbling.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As an executive of the Revolutionary Army, Karasu holds a powerful position within the organization. As the commander of the North Army, he has full control over all the soldiers in it.
Karasu has seemingly eaten a Devil Fruit of an unknown type that allows him to turn his body and clothes into a murder of crows. In this form, he is capable of performing actions over a wide area, as shown when he stole all of the Pinkbeard Pirates' swords at once. Each crow is capable of carrying an average-sized person on its back, and they are also used to deliver newspapers. Karasu is also capable of talking as a crow.
After Sabo, Koala, and Hack had completed their mission on Dressrosa, Karasu and some others came to take them back to Baltigo. Karasu flew to Sabo as a murder of crows and brought him to their ship, where they set sail.
Karasu and his fellow executives Lindbergh, Belo Betty, and Morley went to Lulusia Kingdom to protect it from the pillaging Pinkbeard Pirates. When Pinkbeard wondered what Karasu was saying, the executive got mad, and Betty told him and Lindbergh to back up the citizens that she had encouraged into taking action. Karasu transformed into crows and stole the pirates' swords, and the pirates were quickly defeated. The executives then headed to Momoiro Island to meet with the rest of the army about their upcoming declaration of war on the World Nobles, and Karasu noted that he had forgotten to turn on his loudspeaker.
After the meeting at Momoiro Island, Karasu accompanied Sabo, Lindbergh, and Morley to Red Port. There, they secretly advanced toward Mary Geoise along with several royals heading to the Reverie. While hiding underground, the executives discussed about saving Kuma from his enslavement to the World Nobles.
