Hey guys. Luffy and his family are full of mysteries. The two well-known characters from the biological family are Monkey D. Dragon(Luffy’s Father) and Monkey D. Garp(Luffy’s Grandfather). Our knowledge about Dragon’s past and his powers is very limited. The biggest mystery about Luffy’s family is the whereabouts of his mother.
However, Oda has helped us out with his interview. He was asked about Luffy’s mother and this is what he had to say—
John Irons: “What is Luffy’s mother like? Was she beautiful? What happened to her? Did she die when Luffy was a baby?”
Oda: “I think she’s alive. I’m still thinking hard about this. [Laughs] But if she does appear in the story, then she’ll be a very tough-looking woman. And strict. There’s no way that she’s a beautiful mother. She’s got this typical middle-aged woman’s permed hair. Speaking about families, I did a backstory for Nico Robin and her family.
That was the first time for me to draw a mother in a character’s memory. Up until that point, I’d never drawn a blood relation. In Chopper’s case, he’s called a son even though he’s not blood-related. So I’ve put in a message there saying that you can still call someone who’s not related by blood your family.” (American Shonen Jump, December 2009)
As you can see that Oda has plans for introducing Luffy’s mother sometime later in the series. We don’t know how much longer we have to wait but it might not be long till we finally see Luffy’s mother. With the Reverie coming up, it might be a good idea to show both Dragon and Luffy’s mother together. As we know that the Revolutionary Army is planning something big and Dragon has ordered all the big names to gather in one place. It means that they’re possibly going for the final push.
Till then we have to wait to see whether it happens or not. That’s it from me. I hope you enjoyed the post.
