Skills & Strength
As a member of the Kozuki family, Sukiyaki was able to read the indestructible stones of history, the Poneglyphs. He passed this knowledge on to his son Oden.
Once, people in Wano Country were worried because Sukiyaki’s father didn’t have a heir and they didn’t know who would succeed him. However, when the Kurozumi clan began to poison possible heirs to the throne in order to gain power themselves, the miracle happened and with Sukiyaki an heir was born after all.
41 years ago, Sukiyaki was the reigning Shogun of Wano Country. At the time, his son Oden was a notorious criminal, which shook Sukiyaki. Due to his multitude of crimes, Sukiyaki expelled Oden from the flower capital. Two years later, however, Sukiyaki appointed his son as the daimyo of Kuri, as he had restored the region, which had degenerated into the lawless zone of the island, to a prosperous place.
Within the time period of 33 to 30 years ago, Kurozumi Higurashi posed as Oden with the help of her devil power, the transgender Fruit, and convinced Sukiyaki to grant Kurozumi Orochi employment at the castle. Oden then saw his father for the last time 30 years ago when he visited him, hearing of his deteriorating health. While Oden was away with the Whitebeard pirate gang, Sukiyaki’s health continued to deteriorate and shortly after, news of his death spread throughout Wano Country. However, Kurozumi Higurashi impersonated Sukiyaki and, to his amazement, proposed Orochi as his successor, allowing him to rise to power. When Oden returned to Wano Country after his trip with the Roger Pirates, he suspected that Orochi had something to do with his father’s death.
