nico robin ~ archaeologist "The Straw Hat Pirates"

Nico Robin (ニコ・ロビン Niko Robin), nicknamed "Devil Child" (悪魔の子 Akuma no Ko) by the World Government is the crew's 28-year-old archaeologist. Growing up alone on the island Ohara (オハラ), home of the world's largest and oldest library, she became an archaeologist at the age of eight and learned how to decipher the writings on the ancient stones called Poneglyph (歴史の本文 Pōnegurifu), which are scattered around the world. After the World Government destroyed Ohara for housing archaeologists along with her returning mother, Nico Olvia (ニコ・オルビア Niko Orubia), researching these stones, Robin spent twenty years on the run, cooperating with various pirates and other outlaws and became a member of Baroque Works nicknamed as "Ms. All-Sunday" (ミス・オールサンデー Misu Ōrusandē, renamed "Ms. Sunday" in the 4Kids dub) at the time, being briefly an antagonist to the Straw Hat Pirates before joining them. Like the scholars of Ohara before her, it is her dream to find and decipher the Rio Poneglyph (真の歴史の本文 Rio Pōnegurifu), which is said to tell the world's lost history. Her devotion to history and its preservation goes so far that she will even risk her life to protect ancient artifacts and buildings. She ate a paramecia Devil Fruit called the Flower-Flower Fruit (ハナハナの実 Hana Hana no Mi), allowing her to create copies of any of her body parts on any surface that she can see. However, if her replicated parts are hurt, she feels the pain on her actual body Robin's current bounty is 80,000,000 Berries. Robin is voiced by Yuriko Yamaguchi as an adult and by Anzu Nagai as a child in the Japanese version of the franchise. In the English dubs, she is voiced by Veronica Taylor for 4Kids and by Stephanie Young for Funimation
