Brook is the musician of the Strawhat Pirates. He ate the Yomi-Yomi Fruit. When he died his soul returned, but when he found his body. All that was left was skeleton and an afro.
Brook is an extremely tall skeleton dressed in formal attire complete with top hat and cane. At 8′ 8.5″ in height, he is the tallest member of the Straw Hat crew. Despite having no skin, he still has an afro which he says is because his hair has very deep roots. Brook’s style is that of a gentleman consisting of a coat, top hat, pants, and afro which are black while the inner linings of his coat are yellow-orange. The ribbon tied in between his coat and around his neck is blue. The outer covering of Brook’s cane sword which he carries is purple. Also, due to his many years of seclusion his clothes have become somewhat tattered.
Once in the Florian Triangle, the crew was attacked by an enemy using poisoned blades. Those who weren’t dead would soon pass away. They all joined together for one last musical performance and recorded it. They all knew Brook could come back and fulfill their promise to see Laboon. However, Brook’s revived soul got lost in the dense fog of the Florian Triangle. By the time he found his body, it had become a skeleton. Brook sailed alone on his ship through the Florian Triangle for fifty years.
He was once a fighter in the surprise-attack squadron of an unknown kingdom. In addition to his sword skill, Brook’s lightweight skeleton body gives him great speed and the ability to jump extraordinarily high. His body is so light that he is even capable of running on water, however, Brook is still powerless if submerged in water, like all Devil Fruit users. Brook is also an excellent musician, displaying the ability to play any instrument at a highly skilled level.
Brook ate the Revive-Revive Fuit (ヨミヨミの実, Yomi Yomi no Mi). This is a paramecia-type devil fruit that had no real positive effect until he died. This fruit allowed Brook’s soul to return to his body after his death. He really didn’t know the extent of his powers, but he realized the power was in his soul. Though Brook is not immortal, he can’t die as long as his bones aren’t damaged. His body is very literally moved by the power of his soul.
Through his music, he could influence people to sleep or even hallucinate by pressing out his soul. As Brook trained for two years. he discovered that he could project his soul out of his body. He can travel through walls and can go relatively unseen. Brook carries a shikomizue (Japanese cane sword), and is extremely skilled in its use. He can also combine his shikomizue and violin to create sound-based attacks.
