Warning! Contains spoilers for One Piece #1086!
The Thien Long To be A pieceof the ruling class is said to be untouchable, but the latest chapter of the manga shows that even they have a limit to what they can do, as Saint Myosgard is publicly executed by Saint Figarland Garling . This is shocking since mangaka Eiichiro Oda introduced them, which has shown Celestial dragons perform extremely heinous deeds with no consequences. But now one of them has crossed a line that the World Government will not allow.
Chapter #1086 of One Piece, translated by Stephen Paul, reveals the tragic and shocking fate of Saint Donquixote Myosgard, a Celestial Dragon who was once saved by Otohime the Fish-Man and changed his way of life because of it. . When another Celestial Dragon, the vile Saint Charlos, tried to capture Otohime’s daughter Shirahoshi at Reverie, Myosgard intervened to prevent that injustice from happening. When Charlos attempted to enslave Shirahoshi again later in Reverie, Myosgard encouraged Leo and Sai to intervene and save her, promising that he would protect them from all consequences. However, after they accidentally murdered Charlos in one of One Piece’s most brutal moments, it seemed that even Myosgard’s Heavenly Dragon state wasn’t enough to save him. After this attack, Myosgard was executed for standing up for the weak.
Myosgard’s death shows the limit of the Heavenly Dragon in One Piece
This is amazing considering the past, Celestial Dragons have been assigned a lot of time. These nobles are descendants of the first 20 kings who established the World Government and thus they rule as gods in the world, backed by the military power of the Navy to protect them. . If anyone other than the Celestial Dragon stood up against them, they would face the wrath of the World Government. This forced everyone to watch the Celestial Dragons brutally murder, torture, and enslave anyone they wanted, including royalty. The only people who oppose them are the ones who don’t care about angering the World Government, like Luffy and his Straw Hats, and the other Celestial Dragons.
While it is clear that Myosgard thinks his Heavenly Dragon status will protect him from punishment by other nobles, the end of the latest chapter shows him wrong. Of course, the severity of his punishment might just be because he contributed to the killing of another Heavenly Dragon, that might be the only law they had to follow, but Figarland Garling (who could be the Shanks’ father), the leader of the newly revealed Holy Knights who ordered the execution of Myosgard, seemingly implying that his greatest crime was to place Fish-Man above his fellow nobles. This implies that the ultimate crime even a Celestial Dragon has to answer for is not killing one of his “untouchable” World Nobles, but questioning their superiority over them. with others in the world. With this example, the other Celestial Dragons are even less able to go against their own kind and do the right thing.
One Piece removed the only good Heavenly Dragon seen in the series
One Piece’s final saga will likely feature a climactic war between the Straw Hat Pirates and the World Government, including the Celestial Dragons. The only potential ally they could have, Myosgard, was now dead. This could serve to introduce a new, more threatening Celestial Dragon like Figarland, and to establish the strength of his Holy Knights, who would quickly become one of the most worthy villains. Scariest ever seen in A piece.
