The Samurai of the Marines (海兵隊の武士, Kaihei-tai no Bushi)
|Base of Operations|
Unno Daiki (海野大輝, Umino Daiki), aka The Samurai of the Marines (海兵隊の武士, Kaihei-tai no Bushi), is a Marines Vice Admiral. He hails from the Country of Wano, hence his moniker. What made him join the Marines is unknown.
Daiki is a short, slim man with black hair, flatly-colored dark brown eyes, and is often seen wearing a white naval uniform with black and gold accents. He has been known to wear a more ornate version, with gold epaulets and frog clasps down in the front of the jacket. He is never seen without his sword.
Daiki joined the Marines and rose in rank quickly, becoming a Rear Admiral in record time. He was patrolling the Grand Line near the Red Line when he, and his ship, encountered the Bloody Mary. Choosing not to pass up an opportunity to capture a highly wanted man, he ordered an attack. After many hours of combat, Daiki managed to capture the captain of the Pirate Crew. While he was deciding what to do with the rest of the crew, an order came through via Transponder Snail to offer the position as a Shichibukai to the First Mate. After some negotiating, the offer was accepted and the captive was taken to Impel Down|Impel Down. Due to the successful capture of a wanted man and the recruitment of a new Shichibukai, Daiki was promoted to Vice Admiral.
Katana: the blade that Daiki is always carrying with him. It is unclear if there is anything remarkable about this katana, though there are rumors of it being a Meito. If Daiki's sword is a Meito, the grade is currently unknown.
