|Emilie De Rochefort|
|English Name:||Emilie De Rochefort|
|First Appearance:||One Piece Strong World|
|Japanese Name:||Kaze Kaze no Mi|
"Wind Princess Emilie" (風プリンセス Kaze Purinsesu?) Emilie De Rochefort, better known under her nickname, Lili, is a rookie pirate who gained infamy on the seas of East Blue for killing Jinpachi Mishima, a business owner connected with the World Government that had been causing her father business troubles. Usually reserved and quietly confident, Emilie has a tendency to kill any Marines she happens across, earning her a bounty of 30,000,000. She is the granddaughter of Sebastian Tarasque, another infamous rookie. The duo gained their reputations for defeating several East Blue World Government agents. As both of them have bounties of over 5,000,000, they are arguably the strongest pirates in East Blue. She is currently preparing her crew to sail the Grand Line.
Emilie "Lili" De Rochefort is a slender young woman with light gray eyes and long honey-blonde hair trimmed with straight bangs that cover her forehead. Lili is usually seen wearing a white Victorian-style dress, white boots, and a red-and-black Gingham patterned ascot tie. This outfit is described as her trademark look. Because of her love of fashion, Lili has many unique outfits.
Although proud and capable in a fight, Lili seems more reserved and quietly confident, the opposite of Asuka, who is often more brash and arrogant. Lili also shows characteristics ranging from elegance and gracefulness, to belittlement and, to an extent, sadism. She has a haughty, somewhat arrogant attitude but also has a penchant for fighting, her first of which was single handedly defeating her would-be kidnappers, and thus when she finds the time, she engages in street fights.
Lili has been often described as a "graceful" fighter by her various opponents. In general, Lili seems to strive for grace and poise with every movement — even and especially during fights. She is also very confident in her fighting abilities, as shown by her confident and somewhat cocky attitude.
Her behavior, however, is split between efforts to sate her own need for fighting and a deep love for her father, who abhors violence. As an example of the latter, just before killing Jinpachi Mishima, Lili says that he has robust eyebrows, just like her father's.
Like many other characters, she has a distinct laughter style, starting with "Kyahahaha".
Abilities and Powers
Emilie is a pirate captain reputed as a fearsome killer of anything World Government related, who has managed to take down even highly trained government assassins - CP9 agents. Lili's unique fighting style is called East Blue Gymnastic Karate. This style is characterized by many dancelike and gymnastic maneuvers - graceful and versatile spins, cartwheels, handstands, tumbles and pirouettes.
This fighting style is self-learned and self-developed by Lili, since her father, who loathes violence, would never allow her to even practice any sort of formal martial arts training. This is why some of Lili's moves often reflect her background and personality. Lilie is so proficient with her fighting style that in her first fight with a Marine, she was able to defeat both him and his subordinates with no visible signs of fatigue, party due to her Devil Fruit.
While the World Government view her as a dangerous criminal due to her fearsome reputation and abilities, few people outside the organization see her as a threat, as she is usually courteous to any non Marine she meets. It has been stated that her innocent looks are what causes most opponents to initially underestimate her, adding to her overall threat. Indeed, due to her Logia-class abilities, Emily is more often than not able to easily handle anyone that tries to collect the price on her head with little more than a single punch.
- Main article: Kaze Kaze no Mi
Emilie ate the Kaze Kaze no Mi, a Logia-class Devil Fruit. This fruit allows the user to generate powerful gusts of wind from their limbs and body as demonstrated by Emilie. These bursts of air can vary in intensity and range depending on the width of the blast. Wide ranged bursts of air can reach speeds equal to hurricane winds, easily blowing away lightweight targets. Narrowing the burst of air will result in a spiraling reinforced stream that is capable of piecing weak armor. By enveloping the host in air and riding on a glider-like device the user can travel at high speeds along a "wind road" of sorts, nicknamed the "Jet Stream" by Emilie.
The user can also envelope their limbs in a spiraling current of air in order to increase the damage they can deal through melee combat, as well as enhancing the cutting power and range of bladed weapons. By producing a thin current of air from the users legs, they can also "ride the wind" allowing them to maneuver faster. As with all Logia type Devil Fruit, the user can also become air, allowing ordinary non-haki or Devil Fruit based attacks to phase through the user's intangible body, though the user leaves themselves venerable from different types of attacks in this form.
This devil fruit comes with just as many disadvantages as advantages. One weakness is that the user is only able to manipulate air in a 30 meter radius. Also, while the user is able to "fly" while transformed, they cannot achieve this above 200ft due to atmosphere change. Another psudo weakness it that while the user is transformed, they are not invisible as with regular air, but the user takes on a distinct semi transparent, shimmering color, much like water vapor evaporating in a desert. Aside from these, the user is affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
Lili was the only daughter of a wealthy noble in East Blue. Four years ago, she was captured and held ransom by pirates for that very reason. While in captivity, she struggled violently to free herself, taking out one of her captors in the process. That fight triggered her hunger for battle. However, Lili's father was a good hearted man who hated conflict. "I don't want Father to be upset with me... but I also want to fight." Lili could no longer control her urge to fight. Under the guise of a simple vacation, she used her family's private ship to take part in fighting tournaments around the seas. One day, she stole an invitation to The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 from an opponent she defeated in Logue Town. Lili soon realized that the host of this tournament was none other than the Mishima Zaibatsu, the main source of her father's problems. She decided to enter the tournament and put an end to her father's business troubles.
King Of Iron Fist 5
After her fourth match during the tournament, Lili had been walking through the Autumn Temple with a hand on her hip and stated how breathtaking the place was. Ganryu, her next tournament opponent, then appeared behind her, holding a map and was noticeably lost. Noticing Lili, he asked for directions. Lili got distracted by his robust eyebrows and compared it to her father's.
She then reminded herself of her plan to defeat the Mishima Zaibatsu and took up a fighting stance. A fight between the two ensued with Lili easily defeating the elderly opponent. After Lili won, Ganryu fell unconscious from exhaustion. Lili took pity on the old man, and laid him face up on her lap. She then stated that although Ganryu had strapping face, he's wasn't very strong, quietly mocking him with laughter while stroking his unconscious face. Thinking nothing of her remaining opponents, Lili made it the the finals with relative ease. She was surprised that after defeating her final opponent the battlefield suddenly transformed into a hellish landscape. She was surprised and scared, but remained strong, despite her fears.
Walking through the inferno, Jinpachi Mishima, leader of the Mishima Zaibatsu, in his Devil Zoan form, appeared behind her. Lili noticed him and turned around. Jinpachi stated his name, and Lili, knowing his relation to the Mishima Zaibatsu, declared a fight for the sake of her father. A fierce battle between the two ensued, with Lili barely emerging with her life. Jipachi, in his defeat, faded into dust, and unfortunate side effect of overusing his Devil Fruit.
Several days later, after recovering from her injuries, Lili and Sebastian celebrated her victory over Jinpachi. Sebastian was emotionally dabbing at his eyes with a handkerchief and Lili bursting into laughter at the thought of how pleased her father would be when he learned of the collapse of the Mishima empire. Lili's chauffeur, waiting on her private ship, turned on a portable Den Den Mushi to discover that Rochefort Enterprises had declared bankruptcy after a main trading partner, the Mishima Zaibatsu, collapsed. The chauffeur was shocked at the turn of events. Lili, however, was blissfully unaware and was still laughing at her perceved success. The chauffeur, fearing her reaction once she found out, fled the scene while she was still distracted.
King of Iron Fist 6
Lili entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 without her father's knowledge, and was beaten by Asuka Kazama in one of the matches. To add insult to injury, her father soon discovered that Lili had entered the tournament. Prohibited from leaving home, Lili was unable to take revenge on Asuka. It was then that her father's businesses were taken over by the World Government. The businesses fell into disarray, and Lili's father collapsed due to stress. Lili was concerned for her father's well being. She figured that if she could get back his businesses that had been stolen by the World Government, she would be able to relieve her father's anxiety. While she was formulating her plans, the World Government announced The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6. Unable to pass up such an opportunity, Lili entered the tournament in order to help her father.
New Age Pirate
Unfortunately for Lili, she was knocked out of the tournament early by none other than her rival, Asuka Kazama. Feeling both rage and shame at her situation. Lili turned to the one thing she hadn't even considered before for the sake of her family, becoming a pirate. Already far from home and surrounded by many powerful potential crew mates, Lili scouted the tournament, but to no avial. "If I can't find one here, then I'll find one out there, and togther we'll be the first crew to ever find One Piece!" she thought, thinking of the great adventure before her. Taking her private ship and only enough provisions to make it to the next island, Lili set out to leave her mark on the world, setting her sights on the legendary pirate king's treasure.
