Margaret is one of the Kuja Amazons of Amazon Lily. She is the one who first found Luffy on the island.
Margaret was born on the island of paradise, in the dangerous Calm Belt, Amazon Lily. She is a kind girl who is a member of Amazon Lily's Defense Force. She found Luffy after he landed on their island and brought him back to the village.
Margaret is a supporting character from the One Piece series by Eiichiro Oda. The series first began serialization in Weekly Shōnen Jump on August 4, 1997. She first appeared during the Amazon Lil Arc that began in Volume 53.
Her first anime appearance was in One Piece Vol. 53, CH. 514 " Body Parasite Mushroom" and her first anime appearance was in One Piece - Episode 408 "Landing! The All-Female Island, Amazon Lily". Her character in the Japanese series is voiced by Masumi Asano, and the U.S. dub produced by FUNimation has yet to announce any casting information.
She is a Kuja Amazon from the island of Amazon Lily, and like with most the of Amazons is named after a flower. She was named after the flower Marguerite.
The character of Margaret did not have much tome to evolve in the story since she mainly played a role in the Amazon Lily Arc. She is a lovely blond woman with a strong sense of curiosity and curvaceous body. She can make clothing, has a love for her home island, her friends, and greatly admires the empress of Amazon Lily, Boa Hancock. Often wearing a small animal hide style bikini top and small skirt.
Originally, she was frightened of Luffy after being exposed to his wild powers. She had never met a man before and was unsure if all men were as strange as him. Though, she was initially very concerned about Luffy's presence once it was discovered he is a boy and was willing to try and kill him several times. She was quickly won over by his kindness and honesty. Going so far as to stand up for Luffy when Boa Hancock was intent on executing him.
One day as Margaret was on patrol of Amazon Lily with her friends Sweatpea and Aphelandra. It was then that their attention was attracted to a small fire burning in the jungle. They rushed to the scene to find the cause and found who they initially had mistaken as a girl for one of the villages on the island. The face and much of the body was obscured by a special parasite mushroom. They took who they thought was a girl from the island to see the doctor, Belladonna. After burning off the mushrooms, Belladonna then instructed the girls to make sure the patient was properly cleaned. At the spring, Sweatpea and Margaret bathed the person. When Granny Nyon arrived to see the commotion, she announced to all that were present that this wasn't a woman but a man. This was the first time Margaret had ever seen a man before. After his injuries were tended to, he was put in jail.
It was several days later until the boy named Luffy would wake up. Many were gathered around to see the man on the island, including Margaret. Luffy spoke to them as he was bare naked, bandaged, and only wearing his straw hat. Everyone was astounded when they saw Luffy's arm stretch out. She handed him some of the lace covered clothes she had made based on his others, but he shouted in anger at the girly designs. Thinking this was his true nature, they all fired arrows, but he escaped through the roof. He grabbed Margaret in the commotion and jumped off the steep mountain to the forest far below. She was sure she was going to die, but he expanded like a balloon the last minute and survived. She though this was part of the virus she had heard men processed. He asked her for the piece of paper that was in his other clothes. He was overjoyed to have it, and explained it was how he could find his pirate crew. She watched his several botched attempts of finding a way out of the Calm Belt, and she had to save him from drowning. Fearing she may become too attached to Luffy, she shot at him with her arrows, and the other Amazons soon arrived with word that Boa Hancock had returned.
Luffy was eventually captured and taken to the area to be executed. Knowing he wasn't a bad person, she tried to stand up for him, and Sweatpea and Aphelandra joined her. For their trouble, Boa Hancock used her powers to turn all three to stone. They were later revived due to Luffy's sacrifice. There was a great party that night, but she had to save him from all the women who wanted to touch and stretch his rubber body. While heading to Granny Nyon's place, she told him how she had heard he was the one who rescued them and thanked him. At Granny Nyon's, Luffy learned from the paper that his older brother Portgas D. Ace was going to be executed. He went to ask Boa Hancock to take him to where he was being held captive. She agreed, and Margaret saw Luffy off with hopes they could see each other again.
Boa Hancock returned from the war at Marineford with Luffy, and everyone was excited to see him again. Margaret wanted to make some clothes for him that he's really like. They had no idea how much he was suffering from both his injuries and witnessing his brother's death. He was later taken to Ruskaina Island in the Calm Belt to train to use Haki.
After two years, Margaret was among the amazons to pick Luffy up from Ruskaina, and she had some new clothes for him. She marveled at the gigantic animals on the island, but one was ready to attack her. Luffy warned the beasts not to hurt his friend, and it backed down. They took him to Sabaody Archipelago and said goodbye. They were able to block the Marine ships from stopping Luffy had his crew from leaving on their ship. From the Yuda, she could see Luffy's friends and thought they looked like fun people. The Straw Hat Pirates ship sank in the water on the trip to Fish-Man Island, and Margaret returned to Amazon Lily.
The power called Haki It's an ability that has shown as a match for the series Devil Fruit abilities. It was originally thought to be a rare ability, but was later revealed as a power that is in all living creatures. It's just that not everyone has the ability to tap it. Some can even go their entire lives without reaching this power, even if they try. All the Kuja Amazon warriors can use this Armament Haki.
An alteration was made to Marguerite in the anime version of One Piece that is produced by Toei Animation. In the original manga scene, Ch. 515, Margaret is topless as she and Sweetpea are bathing an unconscious Luffy. For the anime version of this scene, Ep. 408, Margaret kept her top on.
Another change is to when Luffy is first leaving Amazon Lily. Her farewell scene with Luffy is greatly expanded to how it was in the original manga version.
Though Margaret is a relatively new character to the series, she does make a supporting character role in the Nintendo DS game, One Piece: Gigant Battle(2009 JNP).
