He has spiky golden blond hair and his eyes are a sharp amber tone. He likes to dress classy to both mislead his opponents and royals.He wears a black or grey suit with white pinstripes and a white undershirt with a black tie. He also wears a long cloak while working undercover. He has a strong and firm build, and the lack of any appearance of crudeness.
Francesco is a rather optimistic and good hearted person rarely ever showing any signs of distress or trouble. Which translates well with back his natural, almost possessive charisma that attracts others to follow him. He's optimistic and prefers to see the silver lining to everything in his life. This is a massive change from his old view that his life was worthless, he now sees his life as his most cherished gift.
Despite this Francesco takes his position as Captain and Shichibukai very serious, often doing his absolute best. For example he can deduce the habits and behaviors of others around him by watching their reactions or behavior. He also has an an uncanny ability to blend into his environment to remain inconspicuous while undercover.
Francesco is also tremendously dedicated to the cause of Libertà Pirates and Dante. He dedicates his power and being to them.This stems from his life being born as a bastard slave, being thrown off the red line and again becoming a slave to pirates. Yet Dante accepted him and gave him and Aria a home. He also highly respects Dante personally for giving him a purpose, a reason to live and fight.
He's also known though for having a ruthless and intimidating form of combat, usually giving his complete focus to a fight. In the face of adversity, Francesco has the uncommon ability thinking three to four steps ahead to seize control of the situation. This is thanks to his vast intellect and undying will to win a fight.
Francesco has a large amount of physical strength, seen when his workout was doing vertical push-ups while holding a massive boulder on his feet. He's also tested his own strength by making massive slabs of thick ice and smashing his way through them with nothing but his own fists without the use of Haki. He also has break neck speed with being able to outrun and outpace the likes of CP9 and CP0 alike both who are masters at the use of their Rokushiki's Soru. He's also shown to have the strength to beyond the likes of Vice Admirals.
Devastante is an empty-hand martial art that has a focus on powerful punches, elbows knees and kicks to overwhelm opponents with sheer power and speed. Though this fighting style isn't just an aggressive style as it also involves grappling, choke holds, and throws which are much more reactive. But these aren't quite too limiting as many of the current practitioners add their respective devil fruits or separate martial art to Devastante to increase its destructive power and efficiency.
Hie Hie no Mi: He consumed his fruit while running away from the pirate crew who had enslaved him on a random island in the New World. After eating it he was able to freeze the pirates who were trying to keep him as a slave and escape their clutches. Currently he's much more adept at using this Devil Fruit such as instantly freezing an entire island's source of fresh water by placing his finger in the spring, or creating intricate and complex shapes such as a highly detailed giant sheild. In fact even a massive forest fire was cancled out by a massive wave of cold air and ice. His most used skill is freezing a foe either just encasing them with ice or freezing them to the core, this is his most used skill as he does his best to keep himself undercover and this is his most silent and low profile technique.
His observation is considered some of he best among the Elios. He was capable of keeping up with the extreme light speed attacks used by Giovanni. Even non-combat related techniques such as being able to detect when others are lying to him, feel the negative feelings others emit around him or even detect trouble from miles away. While calm, he can look into the future, which he has used for gaining advantage over others in battle or even win while gamblling.
He is trained in both forms of haki as he developed it through his many years onboard with the Libertà Pirates. He has show having a strong understanding with both forms with his specialty being Busoshoku. Using his haki to protect his hands, Francesco can catch multiple haki infused razor sharp swords with an open palm without flinching. When adding it to his Devastante his punches can leave a large dent against the side of a mountain, or in cases he can even shatter an entire plateau.
Through his training in haki and the training he did for Devastante he has developed both hakis to reach advanced forms in both. With this advanced Buso he can project his Haki flow from his body without a medium. He's been seen blocking Gio's light laser attacks by emitting his haki through his hand. He also has the ability to use his haki for Internal Destruction but has also mixed this with his Devastante which mimics this ability. By fusing the two Francesco has been seen destroying a person’s ribs with a single shove.
Aria Alanis: It was thanks to their friendship that Francesco could finally feel safe and at home. Aria looks after Francesco from the shadows, acting as his "Sniper cover fire". Francesco is also very protective of her usually being the first to defend her when she faces discrimination for being a Human-Mink Hybrid. While Aria is very possessive of Francesco usually seen at least a little irritated when other girls hug up on him or flirt with him.
Born to Slavery
Francesco was born to a woman who was enslaved by a Celestial Dragon. Sadly while it was bad being born into slavery, Francesco was born only because the Celestial Dragon had raped his mother. To make matters worse Francesco looks so much like the father that the Celestial Dragon's wife could see it which just made her angry and much more abusive to Francesco and his mother.
At the age of 10 Francesco was the spitting image of his father, so much so that even other World Nobles noticed and began to gossip about. So the wife took it upon herself and had the guards to beat him down and throw him off the cliff, forcing Francesco's mother to watch, sending her a deathly and serious message.
Once a slave always a slave
Francesco was thrown off the Red Line and landed into the ocean with so many of his bones breaking upon impact and nearly drowning. He would wake up in a room hooked up to an i.v. and chains with his injuries treated. Unable to speak as his jaw was wired shut, he was quickly made aware while he was "saved" these shackles proved he wasn't free. A pirate crew "Red Nose Pirates" had taken him as a slave saying that he owed them for saving his life.
After sometime his jaw had the wires removed and when asked for his name he said his name was Ambrosi. For the next three years Francesco lived as a slave for these pirates who were almost as bad as the World Nobles as far as drowning him a handful of times if he tried to escape. They even drugged him, almost killing him just to test to see if the medicine would work. eventually they placed the same collars World Nobles used on their slaves rigged with explosives and severely starving him.
Escape and Salvation
At the age of 13 Francesco again tried to run away, at full speed he left into a forest. While he knew the collar would kill him he said "I'd rather die by choice with a final meal, than to live as a starving slave". He found a tree with a single apple which was blue and cold o the touch. Even so he ignored the coldness and bit into it, ignoring the horrible taste he ate the whole thing as the ticking in from his collar got louder. Accepting death he closed his eyes and waited for the explosion which finally came as the collar erupted and destroyed the tree he took the apple from.
Thankfully the apple he ate was the Hie Hie no Mi, making him a Freezing Human and allowed him to live and escape the collar. When the Pirates who enslaved him finally reached him and attacked him, one by one they were frozen after making contact him him or ran away. That was until the captain of the crew made his way to him and placed a pistol to Francesco's head, claiming the bullet inside was made of Sea Prisim which could still kill him.
Again accepting death Francesco smiled and closed his eyes, though this time he felt a small gust of wind and weight on his shoulders. He opened his eyes to seeing everyone around him had arrows embedded into their heads and backs. The bushes in front of him began to shake as a girl with green-blonde hair emerged from it with her bow and arrow pointed at him. Before he could react Francesco passed out.
A New Life?
When Francesco woke up in a room and bed he didn't recognize he tried to get up but the same girl stopped him. She introduced herself as Aria Alanis and called herself a 'survivor'. While it took some time Francesco accepted Aria's help. The house they lived in was run down from the outside but rather clean in the inside, filled with books Aria stole from nearby towns.
Aria would teach Francesco how to read and write as he was a slave and didn't know how to do any of that. She would hunt down animals and gather whatever supplies needed until Francesco was recovered completely and could help. Together the two studied and trained with one another which helped break down Francesco's walls and making him feel safe.
As the two spent their time together, they both had an affinity for books written by adventurers. The two were blown away by everything they read and saw in the books. So much so that after a year they ended up jumping from ship to ship. They would join multiple pirate crews. This was because no matter where they went Aria was harrased for being a 'freak of nature' or worse, many grown men would try to make sexual advances at her, which would end up with Franceso freezing them alive. The two would steal whatever they could and this became so common to them to do.
A White Haired Angel
Eight years ago when Francesco was fifteen and Aria was thirteen they ended up running into a "tan man with snow white hair" who offered them food and a place to stay. He said his cook will make whatever they wanted and his doctor would treat any injuries they had. While the two agreed it was only to repeat their process and rob the ship. When nightfall finally came, the two tried to take anything they could but as they left their room they ran into the same man. He properly introduced himself as Dante or Esposito Dante, the captain of the Libertà Pirates. When Dante tried to freeze him while Aria aimed her bow and arrow at him, Dante just smiled and released the smallest amount of Haki effecively knocking them out.
When they woke up, they were in warm and very soft beds. As they looked around confused Dante entered with a tray of food. He explained they could leave if they want but they couldn't take anything with them. He did make them an offer, stay on his ship and become an apprentice in his crew. The sudden kindness from the stranger was uncommon and rather 'weird' for them but somehow they could tell he was being honest.
Dante was kind and treated them like any other member of his crew. After Francesco told Dante his real name was Elio Francesco" it made Dante smile even more and patted him on his shoulder. Dante had Kai train Francesco personally, and had Cielo train Aria for their first few months on board.
I Will Defend You From The Other Side
Six years went by with the both of them slowly became powerful pirates as they were trained by Dante and his top four commanding officers. They never were seen or even had bounties assighned to them as Dante would do his best to keep them away from the Marines. Francesco did notice the Marines were keeping a watchful eye on Dante and the territores he was gaining. So he came up with a plan, to become a captain of his own crew, gain power and infamey, eventually join the Shichibukai. All in the effort of protecting and and helping the man who saved his life.
While originally Dante refused the idea, Kai and Megumi convined him. Dante struggled to say goodbye but both Aria and Francesco scolded him and said "We will be doing this to help you! We love you Captain! Thank you for everthing!" with tears running down their eyes. Which Dante responded by giving Francesco a black cloak, and Aria a jet black collapsible bow. Dante had Megumi take the two back to Paradise, even giving them a ship too.
One Year Later
Francesco quickly recruited and built a crew over a years time. His devil fruit,Haki, and years of training by world class pirates quickly made Francesco a threat to the Marines. After forming sufficient enough of a crew, Francesco began to inact his plan...
On his first outing, Francesco took a page from Dante's book and decided to go for a move to make lots of noise for the world government, attacking the Marine base known as G-2. During this altercation, with a crew of only nine, they absolutely surprised the massive marine fortress by not just bringing to fight to them but did so without killing a single person. During this clash he dealt with Marine Vice Admiral Louise Elizabeth with the two seemingly equals until he removed his weighted clothes and began using his devil fruit, quickly overpowering the Vice Admiral who then got assistance from two Marine Captain to close the gap as much as they could. At the end, once the clash of powers reached the three hour mark, the nine pirates retreated. They left as the clear victors as they defeated the majority of the Marines at the base, but did so without killing anyone. The marines took this as him and his crew only demonstrating their power.
He had an encounter with the one time rival of Dante's, Elio Giovanni in which the two had collided for a total of four days and three nights. They had transformed the once lush spring island of Giglio into an island of permanent Ice, snow and an eternal day. on the fourth day, Francesco remained on his feet but Giovanni was still the winner, his experience being what allowed him to edge out the difference. Even so, Giovanni ended up joining Francesco, saying the boy has potential to be one of the greatest Elios.
Recently it was Francesco who delivered five members of the Yonko crew, the Libertà Pirates (though this was planned out by Dante) with each member having their own bounties and are known members of the crew. He asked for a spot among the Shichiukai, offering the five members as a sign of peace..
