Sol D. Neal, also known as "Quickdraw" Neal, is a swordsman, bounty hunter, and member of the Shichibukai from the West Blue. He was known in the West Blue for pursuing the bounties of the most heinous pirates along with members of the underground mafia. His goal to defeat all evil on the sea has led him into some trouble with Navy officials. "Quickdraw" Neal was given his first bounty after defeating the corrupt Marine Captain Kabuto S. Willem on the island of Chisana Kame. After receiving a bounty, Neal headed for the Grand Line to pursue higher bounties and get one step closer to hunting down the Wild Boar Pirates who destroyed his home, Kakure Island.
Neal is a slim man of a decent height at 177.8 centimeters. He has chocolate-brown skin and jet-black hair. His red eyes are usually slightly closed as he is usually quite tired due to passively using his devil fruit ability. He usually wears a crimson dragon pendant around his neck.
Clothing and Equipment
His typical outfit consists of a dark jacket, either black or brown, over a white shirt with black pants. Sometimes the jacket is removed during parties and hot weather.
Neal is usually not seen with any weapons or tools on his person as he can simply summon them using his devil fruit power. During combat, he is usually seen with his primary weapons, Taiyō and Kiba, or one of his guns.
Neal has a complex personality that changes based on his situation. His actions are known to range from a kind gentleman to a murderous monster and make him seem unpredictable to some people. Although he may seem unpredictable, Neal is driven by his own goals and beliefs that have led him to become the person he is today.
Neal is known as an incredibly intelligent bounty hunter from both his ability to track and trap his prey and his advanced use of his devil fruit and swordsmanship abilities. It is widely believed that another person with the Soko Soko no Mi devil fruit would not have reached his level of expertise in such a short amount of time. Claims of Neal's intelligence also stem from his ability to pick up techniques quickly which gives him an advantage in battle once he understands his opponent.
Goals and Dreams
Neal is mainly driven by his goal: to rid the sea of all evil. This goal stems from his traumatizing past where his home island was destroyed by the Wild Boar Pirates. As such, Neal ruthlessly hunts down pirates to end their destructive tendencies and simply deems their bounties a bonus.
Interactions with Others
He has a kind tendency towards civilians since he wants to protect them from his experiences. He will usually remain on an island after securing a pirate to help fix the damage that his fighting has caused and to soothe the locals. When dealing with children, Neal usually shows them magic tricks and makes jokes in order to leave a good impression on them.
When dealing with pirates or others whom he deems "evil", Neal shows little mercy. He goes into what some deem an unparalleled rage that contrasts greatly with his attitude towards civilians. He is known to sink entire ships if angered fully and does not tolerate anyone who hurts innocent people, regardless of status or power. When drawn into a rage, Neal is known to lose his self-control and simply aims to decimate his enemies.
After joining the Shichibukai, Neal's attitude towards pirates has not changed, but he is wary of antagonizing the other Warlords too much in case it jeopardizes his position and unfreezes his bounty.
