Name: Boswellia Ozark
Alias/Epithet: Ozzy
Race: Kuja
Gender: Female
Age: 28
Mode: Hard

Description of Modes:

Easy Mode: Easy Mode is for people who have no major interest in their characters dying. You have access to private topics, maims turn into severe bruising that inhibit the use of the damaged body part for the rest of the thread, what would normally cause deaths turn into your character simply being knocked out. However, everything isn't good for you, this also means that your character will never be able to pass Tier 3.

  • Exceptions to these Rules: Should you attack someone on Hard Mode with killing, crippling, injuring, or maiming intent OOC or IC, you lose your Easy Mode protection and may have the same done to you. May it be killed, maimed, injured, etc as long it is the same intention.

  • You cannot make private travel threads, but they can still be No Kill due to your Easy Mode Protection.

  • Also, there are also events which your character will be at risk if you choose to enter them.

  • Lastly your character can be vulnerable to death if you will it.


Hard Mode: This is for people willing to take more of a risk for more of a reward. In this mode you can reach up to T6, and there are other things available to you, like world positions. However, your character is always death enabled. A hard mode person is not allowed to make a "No Kill" thread or a Private thread. Their whole existence is open. Hard Mode is to promote a more realistic One Piece Roleplay-verse and while people are eligible to die while on Hard Mode, our aim here is not to make this a place where people meaninglessly kill. Hard Mode is introduced to promote interactive RP where people value there allies and teammates. Hard Mode is for an experience closer to Canon.

  • Exceptions to these Rules: If you are situated on your island, or your ship, you are permitted to make a private thread between you and crew members. HOWEVER, you cannot make a private travel thread on your ship, you are still at risk of invasion in those threads.

  • Protection for Private Topics on your Ship can last for a duration of 15 IC Post, afterwards the topic is Open whether you are on the ship, setting sail, etc.


Changing Modes: Changing modes is also possible if you start out a character, and realize the mode you chose does not really suit you. Unfortunately, to prevent people making the first choice without thought, or using easy mode to their advantage getting as high as they can with Easy Mode, and jumping to Hard Mode, there are penalties to both sides changing modes.

  • Easy Mode Penalties: If you're on Easy Mode, and you change to hard mode, you are bumped down an entire tier, and will have to build your way back up. Anything spent on something you cannot have anymore because of tier problems, (You were T3 with a T3 only sword, and you've been knocked down to T2), will be refunded.
  • Hard Mode Penalties: If you choose to jump to Easy Mode, you get everything taken from you that is Hard Mode only, and a tier down.


Finally, there is only one difficulty change someone can go through ever. There will be no chance to buy/trade/sell/casino a difficulty change if you decide you want to change back, ever. So make all of your choices carefully.

Occupation: Weapon Specialist
Affiliation: Marine
Tier: 1

General Appearance: Ozark appears as an epitaph to the Kuja body. She stands at a vicious height, above that of any regular man and well above that of a regular woman, coupled with an hourglass figure formed by thick hips and wide shoulders. Her body is one that stays erect in all that it does to alert to her finesse and grace. Though she might look fragile in her form, the weight is simply lacking in her stomach. Were one to inspect her body, they would find distinct muscles along her upper body; the sort that tell tales of her training. The various scars on her body, however, would recollect stories of battle. The red scar mark on her right shoulder is particularly telling, indicating an unfortunate gash from a weapon. The mental scar left by it is apparently much greater though...

With milk-white skin, Ozark's head appears like a blank canvas with a face painted on to it. Her lips especially play into the paint feeling, with their bright red hue and fluid curling motion. She could almost be the perfect pouter with such lips if she desired. Her eyes come off as less charming. however— two hawk-like sockets instilled with dull, gray orbs capable of piercing through any gaze. Swaths of makeup usually accompany her sharp eyes, not to seduce but because she finds it appealing herself. Further up her head, you'll find a swirl of white-blonde hair across her scalp. One side is neatly kept while the other is usually a mess, giving her some resemblance to a parrot at certain angles. Her hair is short by typical standards, though it's difficult to confuse her with man given her body size. Once upon a time, however, it could reach down to her legs in a stream of hair, but those days have since passed with her immaturity.

As with all Kuja, she prefers to wear as few clothes as possible. Her job prevents that though, and she's come to find that men and women alike not from Amazon Lily find it immodest. Instead, in keeping up with the conservative air of the marines, she opts to cover most of her body despite how itchy she finds any fully-clothed attire. Her preferred outfit, and somewhat her calling card, is bright red fur coat with matching matching rough pants. A black ring of gorgeous feathers line the neck of the outfit, telling of the expenses put into it while the pants are adorned with white stripes down the side that compliment her hair. Though the outfit might be perceived as separate, bronze buttons run down in a slop from the coat to the paints, suggesting that it is a one-piece (no pun intended) suit.

A couple of other accessories can be found about on Ozark's character. Being long-sighted, she brings a pair of cherry red glasses for (mostly) reading, and they can often be seen adorned atop her hair with the sides tucked away inside her ear lobes. A small dark feather might be present behind the brim of the glasses, though she has a bad habit of losing it. On her hands, one will find red gloves with black feathery cuffs to match the rest of her uniform. What they lack in warmth, however, they make up with gripping assistance. Finally, as your reach the bottom of her body, you'll find dark red heels. Such shoes might seem out of place with Ozark, who often prefers comfort over beauty in her clothing, but she has found they help train her balance and thus serve some purpose.
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 168 lb
Crew Tattoo Placement:Right shoulder, below her scar.

Personality: Ozark is woman that holds her foremost allegiance to her people, the Kuja. The sole course of her actions are to make things better for the people of Amazon Lily; it's even related to why she would join the marines. For that reason, she holds the public image of her people very near and dear. It has prompted her to never act shamefully and to honor as a very serious manner. In contrast, she holds disgraceful Kuja (especially pirates) in the highest contempt. She would not be afraid to put down such a Kuja either, believing matters of the tribe to be far above the matters of the marines. It would be even worse if a regular person were to wound the name of the tribe. This line of thinking is not new to her though. It's been ingrained in her since she was just a girl, instilled by her equally prideful mother.

When it comes to expressing pride, Ozark takes the “warrior of valor” approach. By that, it is meant she believes surrendering or standing down to be anathema. It come off as impractical, but even a tactical surrender is something shameful for her. The thought process is that, if you are weak enough to need to retreat, you deserve your death in the ensuring battle. The pride aspect extends to less shallow aspects of her life however. In speaking with others, she takes great care to avoid the stupid kinds of humor, shameful flirting and whatnot. She considers such acts to be degrading to her dignity and would not dare to sacrifice said dignity for a little bit of charisma. These traits can get her mistaken for a hard ass, and it wouldn't be entirely inaccurate. It's just that her attitude is derived from a sense of honor rather than a sense of hatred.

Growing up on the Island of Women, Ozark learned to treasure one thing greatly—fraternity. She firmly believes that the key to success is working within a group of comrades. Not just any comrades though, but ones that you can trust with your very life. Such people are a lucky few, for they would get to see a side of Ozark than many would not. Around her closest allies, for instance, she would be softer and let transgressions to slide with much greater ease than her regular prideful self would allow. It can even be said that the Kuja, lacking in the traditional family structure, have turned to fraternity for family; Ozark is no exception to that, acting as if she belongs to her friend-in-arms and vice versa. Similarly, to lose a comrade would be a great pain that even she would not wish to experience again.

Ozark can come off as domineering in interacting with others. She likes to stand painfully close to the one she's speaking to, with firm eye contact and sternness in the topic of conversation. If she doesn't like something, she'll almost always point it out as well, if only to make her conversational partner a little more nervous. In that regard, Ozark takes pride in appearing intimidating and often uses it to push her own will onto others. For that reason, it can often be hard to tell Ozark no, especially when she might outright refuse a no with an arrogant grin. That way of acting is with strangers, of course; among close friends, she tends toward a more laid-back police and almost playful way of speaking. She doesn't have a need to be on guard or on the offensive when among her comrades after all.

Though she might be terrible in many things (lying, dancing, and whatnot), it is rare that Ozark can be caught without assurance in her own abilities. Even from an early age, she was taught not to doubt what she is capable of, lest she let fear overcome her. One could throw her against a sea king and, though she might be one hundred times weaker, she would look the beast in the eye before attacking. That's not to say she's ignorant of the limits of her ability. No, she understands perfectly that she is a mortal with mortal boundaries. Instead, her great confidence is meant to be a soft barrier against the great odds against her in her life. For her, that sort of confidence is the only good way to approach life anyway while tears and hesitation are a cowards way in life.

History: Boswellia Ozark's origins began in Amazon Lily as a newborn among the Kuja. She was the first and only child of her mother, Phlox Ozark, a woman of extraordinary size and even greater fortitude who raised her daughter to be just as good. In fact, as young as she could begin, Phlox drilled the virtues of the Kuja into little Ozark's head. It wasn't so much indoctrination as it was instilling the values of the community into the young girl, and Ozark took to the teachings rather quickly. Imagine a little girl desiring strength to have beauty, to desire the skills to use weapons to obtain honor in hunting, and just the hope to one day meet the village leader in person one day, if only to priase her. If that paints a picture of little Ozark accurately, then it's easy to imagine why so many of her elders saw the role of a proud Kuja warrior in her future.

A mother Kuja is expected to train her daughter's mind, however, but to train her body as well. Among one of Phlox's most memorable training methods was the axe test. At the age of six, Ozark was taken to a clearing in the village, where she witnessed her mother slam her battleaxe into the stone ground. The instructions were simple—pull the axe out of the ground—but not easy. Within just a couple of minutes, the girl's little arms were tired and she was forced to try again the next. She was unable to do it the next day as well, and the day after that was met with just as much failure. The axe was just too big and stuck too tightly for her small fram to pull it out, which is why every day for the next six years was met with similar failure.

At the age of twelve, by the time the axe had vegetation growing around it, Ozark managed to pull the weapon from the ground. It was worth a personal celebration indeed, but it was merely a milestone in Ozark's training. It wouldn't be the last test with the axe either; over the years, Phlox would task her daughter with cutting down trees with the axe, hunting animals with it, etc. This naturally produced an affinity within the girl for the axe. In fact, even while Ozark was taught to use a bow along side her other tribe members, she was one of the few that developed a preference for melee weapons over bows.

When Ozark finally came of age, she joined the ranks of the village's guards. The woman was honored to have been accepted as one, though she would always remember the gig in a boring light. The Kuja were a disciplined people that rarely disrupted the peace after all. There was a redeeming thrill to the job however; every couple of months, an unfortunate ship would find itself destroyed by a sea king and its contents would wash upon the shore of the island. A handful of guards would always sent out to collect whatever had washed up in these instances. A few lucky time, Ozark was asked to join these groups and gather what they found. The various treasures and weapons were definitely neat, though she was occasionally unlucky enough to find shriveled corpses scattered along the beaches.

Shortly before Ozark turned twenty-six, she and five others were sent on one such expedition to the beaches of the island. A Kuja had reported seeing a ship being sunk off the southern coast and prompted the guards to investigate. It did not sound particularly strange, but the group made very rare discovery—a survivor! The six Kuja happened upon a battered but conscious woman crawling through the sand out of the water when they arrive. The group rushed to her help, of course, and mended her wounds with what little they had on them. Shortly afterward, the woman identified herself as “Painsley” and stated the her ship had been cut off from the rest of the fleet she was traveling with before a sea king wrecked it.

Not lacking in hospitality, the six Kuja offered to bring Painsley back to the village but she refused and instead produced a den den mushi from her pockets and called for a ship from the aforementioned fleet. The group were skeptical as to how a ship would make it the island but Painsley assured them it would not pose a problem for her captain. Still insisting on doing at least one good deed though, the group of Kuja stuck around and helped Painsley gather up any of her supplies that washed up on shore. At one point, over the hours waiting and gathering, Ozark insisted on returning to the village to bring back food (or at least bandages) but Painsley seemed especially adamant on keeping the six Kuja with her.

It wasn't until nightfall that the ship Painsley called for arrived. To the amazement of the six Kuja, it had not a scratch on it as if the sea kings hadn't paid it any mind. Several rowboats descended from the ship and came up upon shore. The small boats carried what Ozark assumed to be bulky, harry women. In reality, however, they were no such thing; they were strong men, all bearing weapons and nasty looks on their faces. Their physical forms and deep voices confused the six Kuja, if not intimidated them somewhat. The biggest and most fearsome of them was, without a question, the captain; Captain Tola was a man who stood even taller than the Kuja and possessed a demon's gaze.

When the shocked group of Kuja became aware that these people were men, they adopted an aggressive stance and ordered them off the island. As a man of deep pride, Tola did not take so kindly to their response and ordered them on their knees. The six were confident in their abilities, however, and stood their ground with sneers. That was the first time Ozark experienced the haoshoku haki in person, when Tola stepped forward and forced the six Kuja into unconsciousness onto the ground with his will alone. Defeated before the fight had even begun, Tola's men gathered the six and had them brought back on to their ship before returning to what would apparently be a pirate fleet.

When Ozark awoke, she found herself in chains under the deck of a ship. With her were several other prisoners in chains, but only one of the Kuja were among them. The prisoners explained that they were going to be sold off as slaves and that they were sailing on the ship of 'Commander' Painsley, whom received a new ship from Captain Tola. Ozark then inquired about the other four Kuja to learn they had probably been thrown onto different slave ships, prompting the distraught woman to go into a rage that lasted for hours. By the next day, the pirates had to lock Ozark hands and feet together to keep her from destroying the wooden beams and floor.

Painsley's ship sailed for several weeks before being stopped by a marine ship. During the battle, the prisoners found their opportunity for mutiny and escaped from their chains. Being attacked by marines from the side and her prisoners from below, Painsley and her crew were forced to surrender. Overall, a handful of marines and pirates died, as well as a couple of the prisoners. Among the prisoner fatalities, the other Kuja had met her own end from a pirate's gunshot. Ozark was understandably flustered, and she manifested this in a hostility toward the male marines who miraculously calmed her down. Shortly afterward, the prisoners and pirates were taken aboard the marine ship and sailed for a nearby marine base.

Several days later, the prisoners were sent off to where they once came and Painsley was executed. Ozark, however, was not content to go back without her fellow Kuja. After pondering on it for some time, she enlisted as a member of the marines to (hopefully) find the other four women. Before she was allowed anyway leeway with her search though, she was sent off to the Blue Sea for her formal training.
