Pell the Falcon is one of the two head guards in the Alabasta kingdom that serve under Igaram, the other being Chaka.[1] He is said to be the strongest fighter in all of Alabasta.[4]


Alabasta Kingdom Going Baseball

Pell in One Piece: Going Baseball.

Pell is a tall man with a purple line under each eye that runs down the sides of his face, making him resemble his Devil Fruit's animal. As shown in Gedatsu's cover story, underneath these robes he is fairly muscular, and has two large, star shaped scars on his chest.

He wears a long white robe with brown star-like motifs on it and a matching hat. He has a big orange necklace around his neck, and also sports striped socks under a pair of normal shoes. He carries his sword on his right hip, so it might be assumed that he's left-handed or even ambidextrous.


Pell has a great sense of honor and respect, and protects the royal family. He was willing to protect Vivi from Miss All-Sunday, regardless of how powerful she was. He has also shown strong loyalty to Alabasta, as he selflessly sacrificed himself to save the country from the exploding time bomb Crocodile had set.

Vivi: Pell, why do you always train?
Pell: I want to become strong to protect the Kingdom.
Vivi: Is fighting a good thing?
Pell: Protecting is not the same as fighting.

— Pell and Vivi talks about his training

Pell appears to have a soft side, gently conversing with Vivi as a child when she asked about his role as a guardian, and using his Devil Fruit abilities to give her a ride. It seems that Pell is very fond of Vivi, as he is shown with a happy smile while flying with Vivi in his flashback before sacrificing himself to save Alaburna from the bomb.[5]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Pell is renowned as Alabasta's strongest warrior.[6] With the aid of his Devil Fruit powers, he dispatched a group of Baroque Works agents in mere seconds. He is also extremely resilient, as he was able to stand back up shortly after having his back broken or at least heavily injured by Nico Robin,[3] as well as somehow surviving an explosion that could have wiped out a kingdom. Carrying the bomb is also a demonstration of immense physical strength, as, even in his falcon form, the bomb was both completely made of metal and at least twice Pell's size.[7]

Devil FruitEdit

Tori Tori no Mi Model Falcon Infobox

Pell's falcon hybrid form.

Pell ate the Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Falcon. A Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a falcon, which has earned him the nickname "Pell the Falcon".[6] The fruit is, apparently, one of five that have been discovered that give the user the ability of flight. Since the fruit is a Zoan type, he has three types of transformations meaning that he can turn into a falcon and a man/falcon hybrid, as well as maintain his natural human form.[3]


He carries around an exotic looking sword with a handle and hilt resembling a plane, and has been shown to be adept at using it. He also carries a pair of gatling guns which he uses in conjunction with his Devil Fruit, causing him to resemble a fighter plane.[3]



Not much was shown about Pell's past. However, he was often seen having fun with Vivi, even though he was strict. This is shown when Vivi tried to make fireworks with gunpowder to celebrate the anniversary of Pell's enlistment. Pell, seeing that what she did was dangerous, slapped and yelled at Vivi out of concern before breaking down and exclaiming that he wouldn't know what to do if anything happened to her. This showed that Pell was strict with Vivi because he cared for her greatly.

Alabasta SagaEdit

Alabasta ArcEdit

Pell, together with Chaka, came to the incident where pirates were annoying civilians. Sir Crocodile came and helped the people by defeating the pirates before the two reached their destination. When the rebellion began to move, Pell and Chaka wanted to fight back but were rejected by King Nefeltari Cobra. Later, they find Carue bringing Vivi's letter, and learn of their enemy's identity from the information. King Cobra plans to attack Crocodile but was rejected by Pell's reasoning that Rainbase is far and that the opponent could see the army and leave. He was later commanded by the king to scout out the enemy at Rainbase.[8]

When he finds Vivi, he shot the Millions who were after her in his Devil Fruit form and takes her to a safe place on a nearby rooftop. He proceeds to finish off the Baroque Works agents. At this moment, Miss All-Sunday, aka Nico Robin, appears on the same rooftop as Vivi.[9] Pell discusses with Miss All Sunday about the fate of Igaram (whom Robin had pretended to have killed, although Pell believed his death to be true). Miss All Sunday then enrages Pell by pretending to pierce through Vivi's body with her hand. However it was the use of her Devil Fruit power (making a hand appear on the back of Vivi's body while her actual hand only punched her). A furious Pell attacks her, but is easily defeated by her Devil Fruit ability.[10]

Later, he regained his consciousness and caught up with Miss All Sunday after she pulled Luffy out of Crocodile's sand-pit. He attempts to engage in a fight but Miss All Sunday points out that he is already too injured to stand any chance. She then lets him know that Vivi is perfectly safe with the Straw Hat crew and that he should instead help save Luffy, who had protected Princess Vivi.[11]

Pell Saves Alubarna

Pell saving Alubarna from the bomb.

During the final battle, he reappears in Alurbarna with Luffy on his back.[12] While Luffy fights Crocodile, he learns that Crocodile had set up a massive bomb to blow up the capital city Alubarna.[13] Princess Nefeltari Vivi and the Straw Hats managed to find the bomb, but they they are unable to disarm it in time. Pell (seemingly) sacrificed himself by carrying the bomb high into the sky where it exploded, leaving the city unscathed.[14]

At first he is thought to be dead. However, a doctor from a remote hospital out in the desert called to a person who left his hat, which looked like Pell's.[15]
