Belle-mère is the former Marine who adopted Nami and Nojiko as war orphans. Her greatest joy in life was being their mother.
Belle-mère is a supporting character in the One Piece series that was created by Eiichiro Oda. The series first began serialization in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump on August 4, 1997. She would later appear in the Arlong Park Arc that began in Volume 8.
Her first appearance was in One Piece Volume 9 CH. 77 "One Step of the Dream", and her first anime appearance was in One Piece - Episode 32 "The Witch of Cocoyasi Village, Arlong's Female Officer". Her character in the Japanese series is voiced by Noriko Hidaka, and the U.S. dub produced by FUNimation is performed by Cynthia Cranz.
The Japanese edition of the manga spells her name as Bell-mère, which is seen on the gravestone in on the cover page of One Piece Vol. 64 Ch. 629. The name Belle-mère comes from the French term meaning "step-mother". Though, belle-mère overtime became understood as meaning "cruel mother". It was eventually replaced with "marâtre" to mean "stepmother". The literal meaning is "beautiful mother".
Belle-mère was the girl that everyone underestimated in everything she did. From joining the Marine forces to being a mother to Nami and Nojiko. They both grew up strong women. Thanks to this strong woman.
