Like Leo, José is a little short and also looks like a bullfighter. He has brown hair and rather large nostrils. His green clothes are decorated with gold and he carries a red scarf. He also wears a blue tie.
He doesn’t seem to know Carmen very well, so he wondered at her congratulations and praise of Sanji.
When Sanji was shopping in Loguetown, he unexpectedly met Carmen and her two assistants. They helped Sanji explain the background of Carmen’s search for him. After Carmen had challenged the cook of the Straw Hats to a cooking duel, they left again. Later, the two were also present at the cooking competition. Sanji won that one, and when he made a nice comment to Carmen that Leo didn’t like at all, Leo attacked him with a pan, but was kicked back by Sanji. Jose ran over to him and helped him get back up.
