The Minister to the Left is a minister of the Kingdom of Ryuuguu on Fish-Man Island, and reports to King Neptune. What exactly his field of responsibility is is not yet known.
The minister to the left is a catfish-fishman with a round-built torso and a round face, with his large, round nose and mouth standing out in particular. In addition, he has long blond hair and a thick beard. His upper lip beard resembles the Barbel (anatomy) a catfish and reaches below his chest. He wears a tall hat and a purple robe. He also wears a monocle on his left eye. In keeping with his species, he has an elongated lower body, though it is not clothed.
The minister on the left takes his office very seriously, but unlike the minister on the right, he proceeds rather thoughtfully. So he was concerned about the queen, but sought conversation with the king and tried to awaken her reason through him. When Zoro defended himself against intruders, he felt it was bad manners and would have preferred a clarifying conversation over tea.
Skills and strength
When Queen Otohime mingled with the people 16 years ago, advocating peaceful coexistence between her people and the humans, the Minister to the Left spoke to the King in concern, suggesting that the Queen present her case to the people via broadcast rather than in person, as pirates lurked everywhere and danger was imminent. But when her efforts finally bore fruit after years, the Queen was shot, and though the Minister to the Left summoned a medical team directly, she died on the spot. At her funeral service, he listened intently to Fukaboshi’s words.
The arrival of the straw hats
When Luffy arrived at Ryuuguu Palace with some of his crew, the minister on the right and the minister on the left rebuked Neptune for not being able to just leave the castle in the situation of the island. Besides, something had happened again recently that had to do with the mermaid princess. The two ministers also had to tell the king an important message from Prince Fukaboshi.
They then tried to capture the Straw Hats, but the attempt ended in the king, the ministers and the guards being overpowered and tied up by them. However, shortly after, the palace was attacked by unknown people, but Zoro was able to take them out. Startled, he noticed shortly after that the intruders were led by Hody Jones as well as Vander Decken IX, and suspected the Straw Hats of having granted them entry. Thereupon a fight broke out in which the ministers, the king and all the others could be freed from their bonds, but in the end the palace had to be abandoned and the ministers fled without their king.
The Battle for Fish-Man Island
While searching for the princes, they encountered and succumbed to a sea bear. It turned out that he was under the command of Ikaros Much. The ministers then watched as King Neptune was taken by Hody Jones on giant sea monsters to Gyoncorde Plaza for his execution. By the time the Minister on the left finally arrived there, the wounded King had been freed and the battle between the New Fishmen Pirates and the Straw Hat Pirates was in full swing. In advance, he initiated the evacuation of the civilians. Shortly thereafter, he was informed via Den-den Mushi of the impending Noah impact and arranged for the people to be warned.
After the victory, he was informed that the kidnapped mermaids had been found in the palace, but that all the treasures had been stolen. The king, however, wanted to let this rest for the time being, in view of the just averted sinking of the Fishmen’s Island. Shocked, he later saw Jinbe offering to donate blood to the straw hat. Afterwards, a banquet was held in honor of their rescuers, which the minister attended, but he received another piece of bad news shortly after. Tamago and Pekoms, two emissaries of Empress Big Mom had arrived to collect the candy tribute, but it was eaten by the Straw Hats while the candy factory fell victim to Daruma. Upon meeting and negotiating with them at the candy factory, however, Luffy appeared and told about eating the candy. After addressing Big Mom personally, he instead gave the two the treasures they received as thanks for saving Fish Man Island.
The Levely in 1524
While preparations were being made for the upcoming reverie at Mary Geoise, the princes, the king, and the ministers tried to persuade the princess to go along. The minister on the right mentioned that she need not worry as her brothers would eventually accompany her, but the minister on the left realized that this would not change the princess’ mind.
