The resident liar, er, sniper of the Straw Hat Pirates is Usopp, also known as Captain Usopp or God Usopp! He may not be the strongest fighter of the crew or the bravest member but he is one of the funniest ones. During the Dressrosa Arc, he even awakens Kenbunshoku Haki.
The most characteristic feature of Usopp is his long nose, giving a not-so-subtle nod at his lying habit like Pinocchio. He was just a skinny boy when he started the journey but after the timeskip, he’s become pretty buff.
Kyros is the husband of Scarlett, the princess of Dressrosa, and father to their daughter, Rebecca. He was a gladiator at the Colosseum in his youth and was famous for his strength. His happy life with his family was destroyed by the arrival of the Donquixote Family on Dressrosa.
Kyros’ appearance is befitting of a gladiator. He was tall and muscular, with bronze skin and severe features. Along with black hair, he also had a beard. Before turning into a toy, Kyros had cut off his leg, becoming a one-legged person.
