Jozu is a male character in the anime and manga series One Piece. He was a notorious Pirate, the Third Division Commander in the Whitebeard Pirates. As a member of the Whitebeard Pirates, he saw Edward Newgate as his father, and Newgate saw Jozu as his son, like all of his crew members. He would do anything for Whitebeard and the rest of his comrades, and because of this he fought at Marineford in an attempt to save Portgas D. Ace from execution at the hands of the Marines. He was one of the most skilled and powerful members of the crew; in terms of physical strength and over all power, it's believed that he was at least number 4 in terms of power scaling, behind Whitebeard, Ace, and Marco, or possibly number 3, as Marco isn't known for his fighting abilities.
After the deaths of Whitebeard and Ace, he remained in the crew, more than willing to serve under Marco as Pops' successor as Captain. He helped Marco and the rest of the crew fight the Payback War, to get revenge against Blackbeard for everything that he did. After they lost the war, Marco disbanded the crew, and all of the members went into hiding. It's unknown where Jozu is at currently.
Jozu was voiced by Takashi Nagasako in the original Japanese version of the anime, and Matt Thurston in the Funimation English dub version of the anime.
Jozu is a tall, heavy set, and extremely muscular man, with short, black hair, black eyes, and dark skin. Whenever he's seen, he's always wearing some kind of red battle armor on the bulk of his body, and brown armor on his shoulders.
