Mr. 1, real name Daz Bones, was anassassin before joining Baroque Works, in which he was the highest ranked male Officer Agent and the strongest under Crocodile himself. After assisting Crocodile and, unintentionally, Monkey D. Luffy, in escaping from Impel Down, he fought alongside Crocodile atMarineford and is traveling with Crocodile into The New World.
Mr. 1 is a man with long thin limbs and fingers. He is tall and very muscular and his head is shaven. His most striking feature is probably the blackunibrow, right over his round eyes. He has big lips and the archaic Japanese symbol of the number "1" (壱, ichi) tattooed on his torso.
In Arabasta, he sported and oriental-looking attire consisting of a sleeveless dark coat with golden edges and white motifs on the front, over very loose beige pants held up by a white sash around the waist, with some light brown fur sprouting from it. His pants were tucked inside some bandages wrapped around his calves and in part around his shoes.
In Impel Down, like most prisoners, he wore striped prisoner clothing. He also had gained a scar to the right of his right eye, likely a result from something that occurred while or after he was taken to Impel Down. During his break-out of his cell, he was bare-chested, with his shirt tied around his waist.
After the Battle of Marineford, he sports a dark suit over a plain open shirt, with a tie kept loose around his neck.
Mr. 1 is stern, emotionless and confident. Mr. 1 hates weakness and due to his Devil Fruit abilities, has come to think of himself as undefeatable. He is dead serious at all times and does not tolerate weakness or frivolity. Mr. 1 also seems to have the belief that having friendships makes one weak. On the reverse side, he also does not seem to care for grudges either; he assisted Luffy in the escape from Impel Down simply due to Crocodile's orders, barely noting the fact that Zoro and Luffy are allies. In battle, he is utterly merciless, such as hittingRoronoa Zoro while the pirate was wounded and unable to defend himself. Nevertheless, Mr. 1 has some sense of honor, as he accepted his defeat at Zoro's hands. He is also a person with a great sense of loyalty for those who manage to earn his respect and respect him in return, such as Crocodile.
While Mr. 1 is generally a cold-hearted person, he secretly had a childish dream of becoming a super hero. When Miss Goldenweek materialized this dream, his face showed great discomfort, but was actually quite delighted in secret.
While in Impel Down Level 4, when he was placed into intense labor in a high temperature environment, he simply pushed a runaway prisoner who knocked him in the head into a boiling blood pot, proving his level of indifference even when in Hell.
Abilities and Powers
Formerly an assassin from West Blue, Mr. 1 is a proficient hand to hand martial artist. Even without his Devil Fruit powers, he still proves to be a very dangerous, extremely strong man, as seen when he simply gave a headbutt to a fellow prisoner (who was larger than him) and it was enough to knock the man over a great distance. Mr. 1 was also most likely wearingseastone shackles at the time, and was punched by the prisoner hard in the head, but simply shrugged the pain off before retaliating. His power was great enough to put him in Level 4 of Impel Down, and the intense heat there seemed to have very little or no effect on him.
In fact, his reputation was great enough to be recognized by one of the Marine officers during Impel Down's breakout attack. He is also strong enough to defeat many Whitebeard Piratesmembers and their allies from the New World. His strength has earned Crocodile's respect, something that most Baroque Works members and even Crocodile's right hand woman, Nico Robin, did not get. Crocodile went out of his way to free Mr. 1 from his cell to assist him in the upcoming war. His skills are good enough to be recognized by the world's greatestswordsman, Juracule Mihawk, who does not bother to remember the names of every weakling that he crushes. Daz even managed to block a slash of Mihawk, however he was defeated after being hit by a direct attack.

By combining his martial arts prowess with the Supa Supa no Mi, a Devil Fruit which gives him the ability to turn any part of his body into sharp steel blades, Daz Bones is a fighter that can literally become a living weapon. As well as giving him an endless variety of bladed weapons, his Devil Fruit powers make him almost immune to damage, by turning his entire body into a blade, thus making it as hard as steel. An example of a transformation is changing his arms into spinning saw wheels, and he is also able to create a small but powerful tornado, similar to Zoro's Tatsumaki technique. Although all of these qualities give Bones the status of a swordsman, he refuses to be classified as one.
Much like his boss, Crocodile, Mr. 1 generally views allies as hindrances rather than assets. His relationship with Miss Doublefinger is a professional partnership, with both of them working together to accomplish any task set before them. While Mr. 1 generally has mostly the same type of indifferent professional relationship with the most of the Baroque Works Agents, he however is on bad terms with Mr. 2 Bon Kurei. Because Mr. 2's flamboyant nature conflicts with his static cold-heartedness, the two of them would often fight with each other, a lot like their later opponents, Zoro (who had beaten Mr. 1) and Sanji (who had beaten Mr. 2). Ever since first meeting each other in Spiders Cafe, they have had this type of rivalry relationship, even in Impel Down's breakout.
Nevertheless, Mr. 1 has shown loyalty towards Crocodile, as when most of their colleagues left prison, Mr. 1 stayed behind with his boss and awaited transfer to Impel Down. He then later joined the riot in Impel Down stating it was because Crocodile asked. He even foughtJuracule Mihawk, the world's greatest swordman, on Crocodile's command. However, his loyalty was rewarded when Crocodile himself saved both his and Luffy's lives from Mihawk.
Before joining with Baroque Works, Mr. 1 was an infamous assassin from West Blue by the name of Daz Bones and was known as a deadly warrior.
