Chapter 1095 Recap

Saint Saturn has arrived at Egghead Island, ready to kill Luffy and Vegapunk. Upon seeing the Elder, Bonney launched herself at him, stabbing him in the chest. Sadly for the young woman, this was nothing more than a bother for Saturn, who was already healing. Sanji and the rest wanted to help, but the elder’s devil fruit was preventing them from even moving.

Saturn mocked Bonney, telling her about her father’s (Bartholomew Kuma) past. This began a flashback where we could see Kuma as a baby being held by his parents. They wanted to keep their son, one of the last Buccaneers in the world safe. Sadly, word of their lineage got to the World Government, and the family was taken as slaves.

Kuma endured torture, mockery, and the death of his parents while he was still a child. Things got worse once the Celestial Dragons traveled to God Valley, a country not affiliated with them, to hold a ceremony where they hunted down and killed slaves and locals. Kuma was going to be given as a prize to the winner for them to kill him. Fortunately for him, he was saved by Emporio Ivankov and a young girl named Ginny.
