In Short
  • Catarina Devon and Van Augur, the two Titanic captains of the Blackbeard Pirates were the ones who head out on a covert mission to Egghead Island.
  • Using the powers of her devil fruit, Catarina Devon was able to successfully take St. Saturn's appearance in his demonic form by touching one of his legs.
  • The duo considered their mission accomplished as they were now in possession of the appearance of an elder that they could utilize at any time.

One Piece had one of its best years in 2023 with the One Piece live-action series and the Gear 5 anime adaptation, among others. Author Eiichiro Oda continues the streak in 2024 with manga chapters that leave us awestruck or connected to some of our favorite characters. And now, with Egghead Island arc reaching its climax, there are a ton of contenders trying to get closer to their goals.

One of them is, of course, the Blackbeard Pirates who arrived on the futuristic island in the middle of an all-out war. For a few chapters, we have been in the dark as to who joined the climax, but we finally have the answer. Oda has revealed the Blackbeard crew members who are on Egghead and why in Chapter 1107. So, let’s discover the truth behind the plan of the Blackbeard Pirates.

Spoiler Warning: This articles includes spoilers for the Egghead Island arc in the One Piece manga, including the latest chapter 1107.

Back in chapter 1079, we saw a Blackbeard pirate ship approaching Egghead Island. For the last 35+ chapters, fans were left to ponder which members were aboard this ship and their objectives as well.

Finally, in the latest manga chapter 1107 (released on February 18, 2024), we learn that Catarina Devon and Van Augur are the two Titanic captains who embarked on a mission to the futuristic island. Inadvertently, Luffy made their mission a lot easier to complete as well.

In this chapter, Luffy, in his Gear 5 form, used a brand-new Booming Dawn Gatling attack against St. Saturn and his punches hit so hard that Saturn went flying. This is when we saw both Van Augur and Catarina reveal their presence on the island and loom over an off-balance Saturn. They got to see one of the Five Elders in One Piece and that too in his demonic form.

Now, this presented a rare opportunity to take a win back home for the Blackbeard Pirates, and they did so as well.

Catarina and Van Augur hit the jackpot already by completing their assigned mission as quickly as possible. However, Catarina was astonished to see the elder’s demonic appearance. Hence, without wasting any breath, she quickly touched one of the elder’s spider legs.

If you haven’t guessed already why she did that, I believe you need a recap of Catarina’s devil powers. She has the powers of the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Kyubi no Kitsune devil fruit, which enables her to transform and impersonate anyone she touches. This is such a crazy power to be in the hands of a person who was known as the most deadly female pirate imprisoned in the world of One Piece.

So, by touching St. Saturn, she essentially can impersonate one of the Five Elders now. Sounds, well, crazy, right? The Blackbeard pirate crew members then had a brief chit-chat with Saturn about how Blackbeard comes from a special lineage and what their crew’s primary goal is.

After successfully stealing the appearance of an Elder that they could use anytime, the duo deemed their mission successful and retreated when the Elder tried to attack. On their way home, they met with Caribou, which is another story to look out for.

For now, Catarina having the ability to impersonate one of the Five Elders is such a massive win in the books of Blackbeard Pirates and for the fans of Kurohige as well. We can’t wait to see the ruckus they cause with Catarina’s newest addition to her impersonation catalog.

So, how do you think the Blackbeard Pirates will use this in the future? Let us know your opinion in the comments below.
