Simon D. Kamina (サイモンD.カミナ, Saimon D. Kamina) is a pirate that hails from an unnamed island in the Grand Line. He is famed as the Heaven Piercing Drill in his homeland, which is a great honor for his village, despite becoming a pirate. Simon is a rare breed, being a pirate of the people and he takes this to heart as he was once the protector of his home using his rare and powerful devil fruit.
As a child he looked up to his great grand father who was a powerful and highly feared pirate using the Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Mamba to take down entire armies. However he also learned that the devil fruit only appeared once every few decades following the death of the user. Spending his childhood searching for it he eventually found it. It was around this time the Marines invaded looking for the same fruit. Attacking his home village he ate it and defended his home using the fruits power to the maximum and almost killing himself in the process.
Simon also is a holder of the Will of D, something passed down his family line through his fathers side. The Will of D drives him to pursue his dream to change the world and become a revolutionary Pirate in the eyes of the Marines as well as the world.
