Coby is a young Marine solider who was once a captive of the pirate Alvida. He was saved by Luffy, and now follows his dream to become an Admiral.


Coby began as a shy, cowardly person who through Vice-Admiral Garp's training became a brave solder. However, his real encouragement came from his friendship with Monkey D. Luffy.


Coby was originally created by Eiichiro Oda for use within the One Piece manga franchise. Coby first appears in both One Piece: Volume One and in One Piece: Episode One.


For a time, Coby was working for Lady Alvida who he came to know by accidentally boarding her ship. According to Alvida he was a great navigator. He on the other hand had always desired to join the Marines, but his fear of Alvida stopped that dream and nearly destroyed it. Then Luffy came and defeated Alvida. Luffy took Coby with him so the boy could follow his dream.
