    Particular points of interest are a lot more background to the backstories of Trebol, Machvise and Foxy of all people.
    Good work as usual, the fact that Trebol and the other original executive officers were a gang prior to following Doflamingo makes more sense than just four random people deciding to follow a guy because he possesses Conqueror's Haki. Also it's a bit ironic and hilarious that Trebol's favorite food is one that Sugar comes to hate after being knocked unconscious by Usopp's face after she fed him the Tatababasco, it furthers the fact that they already disliked each other.

    While Viola's relationship with Doflamingo was answered in an SBS, I do have to wonder why she would start a relationship with the man who's crew:
    • Took over her country and made it the center his underworld empire.
    • Turned her family and confidants in pariahs.
    • Killed her sister (said crew member received no punishment for the act while Doflamingo was ruler).
    • Enslaved a tribe that her father was trying to make amends to for predecessor's actions.

    I can't wait to see the cp9 pack which I hope will reveal some nice tibits about the Former CP9 members. Heck, I even hope we get to learn more about Rokushiki from this pack! Also, the fact that this is coming out in June (which is where my birthday is) makes this all the more fantastic! :D

    I would guess it's like she tried to get close to him that she could get in bed with him one day to kill him or something along those lines.

    A quote I liked in his card however was "Even when being held at gunpoint, Clover is capable of having a direct conversation with the Gorosei", really goes to show his determination!
    Unfortunate. I was hoping for at least a hint of what the right things to focus on are, but ah well.

    Clover's definitely one of the less-remembered dead mentors of the series, which sucks, because he certainly did have a pair on him, staring death in the face like that.

    • Enslaved a tribe that her father was trying to make amends to for predecessor's actions.
    My guess is that she started trying to get close to him (or gave into Doflamingo's advances) in order to either curry a bit of influence so she could try to make the citizens of Dressrosa's situation at least a little better or to go down the "get him naked and defenseless so I can kill him in his sleep" route - given the versatility of Viola's power and Doffy's general willingness to "forgive" attempts on his life from those he can still use (see: Baby 5), I don't think a failed murder attempt or two on her part would necessarily push him to kill, imprison, or toy-ify her so long as he was sure he could still manipulate her into doing what he wants.

    Mix in the perpetual threat of the consequences for her defiance falling on the heads of her nation's people and/or her few remaining family members, ten years of hopelessness and despair, and possibly even a little bit of Stockholm Syndrome, and I can understand Viola's relationship with Doflamingo developing into something more complicated than simple raw hatred.
