-ˏˋ⋆ Backstory — Ekari grew up in a wealthy family. Her father was a Blacksmith and her mother was a farmer. She grew up with a cherry farm which has drawn her to enjoy baking and fruits of all kinds. When she was 9 years old, Ekari ate a Devil Fruit without even realizing. The fruit in name was the Cherī Cherī no mi, which grants the user cherry related abilities. Upon eating this strange fruit, her body felt tingly at that moment. Weeks passed as young Ekari allowed herself to rapidly grow cherry trees. One cherry tree grew a sword called the Cherry Stem Saber which is only granted to the cherī fruit user. The girl took the sword and kept it safe within her room. Living in a calm and quiet village has made her a very calm individual herself. She was never induced into war and violence throughout her early childhood years until she turned 10. Ekari's mother was a runaway of a pirate crew whom had attempted to force her to have children with a crew-member in order to gain more power. Her mother refused and resorted to violence when the crew-member attempted to get his hands on her. This caused her mother to runaway on a small boat towards a village where she met her future husband. After years of freedom, the pirate crew Ekari's mother was apart of invaded the village, taking hostages and killing innocent villagers. Ekari was taken hostage as well as her mother, who was shortly killed after the captain found out her identity. After finding Ekari's strange sword, the pirate crew sailed off with the girl still alive and her sword by her side. Days passed as she was forced to tolerate the name calling and horrible remarks the crew had made against her village and her mother. This was her intent to kill. One night, Ekari slaughtered the entire pirate crew with her dear sword, one by one, blood dripped from their bodies as the sword pierced through them. During the process, Ekari stabbed her own thigh with the sword, leaving a deep gash within her. A day passed and another crew found the abandoned looking ship, in which they discovered the young girl. After taking her in and treating her wound, Ekari was allowed a place to stay with a young pirate thrived boy who was 13 at the time. The two young ones became good friends and always played 'Pirate' together and went out on long walks around the village. The Grandfather of Ekari's friend realized where the girl was from 5 years after she started living in the village, and asked what her ambition was, which she replied with "To become a Pirate and restore my village." With these words, Ekari became the Captain of the Cereza Pirates at age 15. Ekari, the boy and his Grandfather soon then built a Pirate Crew for the next 4 years, saving individuals and offering them a place to stay as Ekari's village was rebuilt. At the age of 78, the boy's father died of a natural cause, leaving his grandson to be the 'Co-Captain' of the Cereza Pirates. Ekari was only 19 at his death while her friend was only 23. With her ambition fulfilled, Ekari had grown her pirate crew since and has protected her village. She welcomes Pirates with a warm smile to see her village's markets and parties. Ekari is now 22 years of age and her Co-Captain is 26.
