Kalifa



Kalifa was Iceburg's secretary and is the only female member of CP9.

Appearance


Kalifa is a slim woman of average height with blue eyes and glasses that, like Kuro, she often pushes up. Her blonde hair was about shoulder when she first infiltrated Water 7 and grew out over the years she spent there. She kept it tied up in a bun as a secretary, but let it fall freely with a left sidelock when she was revealed to be an assassin.

She has small studded earrings and usually wears outfits that reveal her legs, something Paulie often chides her about while she was undercover. As an assassin, she wore a long-sleeved short black dress over a fishnet shirt and stockings along with black gloves and high-heels.

In the Volume 44 SBS, it was revealed that Kalifa was very bookish as a child.

Personality


Galley-La

Kalifa is first seen as Iceburg's secretary. She seemed to be a serious, businesslike woman with a hot temper. She is known for her trademark phrase "That's sexual harassment." She is seen to be fiercely loyal to Iceburg at first and is always seen walking around with him.

CP9

During the Enies Lobby arc, Kalifa personality becomes sly and crafty, as she enjoys embarrassing her superior, Spandam by accusing him of harassing her, again with her trademark phrase.[2] Despite her initial impression of being completely serious and professional, she became easily flustered during her fight against Nami. She is not too bright, mistaking Monster Chopper for Nami. She is also rather vain, considering herself so beautiful and sexy she doesn't need to make her skin smooth with her Devil Fruit power.

Abilities and Powers

Kalifa uses a kick-based fighting style like Sanji, when not using Rokushiki or Awa Awa no Mi techniques. Her attack speed is fast enough to leave residual images after striking.

When first introduced, her fighting style was strongly intertwined with the use of her thorned whip. However, after she ate the Awa Awa no Mi, apparently she stopped using her weapon as a part of it.

Weapons

In Water 7, she uses a spiked whip for attacking.

* Ibara Road (Thorny Road) - Califa leaps in the air and thrusts her whip out at a group of people.

Fighting Style

Like the other CP9 members, Kalifa has mastered all six techniques of the Rokushiki style. However, with a Douriki of 630, she is the third weakest CP9 member, above Nero and Spandam.

Devil Fruit

After the attempt to assassinate Iceburg, Spandam gave Kalifa's the Devil Fruit Awa Awa no Mi, which allows her to generate bubbles to "clean" the strength off her opponents.

Kalifa went easy on Nami first before showcasing her real powers. She was arrogant and took Nami lightly and did not consider her a threat. It was this unfocused and impulsive attitude that led to her defeat at Nami's hands.

Secretary

Kalifa was first seen as the secretary for Iceburg that kicked anyone who mocked him. Later, she arrested Franky and showed her true colors by revealing she is a member of CP9.

CP9 Agent

When Kalifa was next seen, she was with the other CP9 members. She was given the Awa Awa no Mi from her boss, Spandam, to deal with the Straw Hat pirates to make sure they wouldn't rescue Nico Robin. Whenever Spandam said her name or replied to what she said, she would say it was sexual harassment.

Enies Lobby

During the attack on the tower she fought against Sanji after he came to his senses(he was struck by her looks and they were drinking tea). Sanji almost won against Kalifa but withdrew since he would never strike a women. She turned him into a soap doll and threw him down the stairs. Nami later arrived to confront her but she had set a bubble trap on the floor, draining Nami's power. Nami quickly realizes Kalifa's powers, much to her dismay. Even with the use of her new powers, she is defeated by a Thunder Lance Tempo in the chest from Nami. Afterward Nami practically rips her outfit apart till she finds one of the keys to Robin's handcuffs.

CP9's Personal Report

Blueno used his Devil fruit's ability, Air Door at Enies Lobby while carrying Lucci. Kalifa and Fukurou is also shown at the back of Blueno. Having been stripped naked by Nami to find the No. 2 key, Jyabura has lent her his shirt. She, along with the other CP9 members, walked along the Sea Train's tracks to St. Poplar. She cleaned the streets with her Awa Awa devil fruit powers. After CP9 paid for Lucci's medical fees, they use the rest to buy clothes and other essentials, Kalifa is seen with Kumadori reading a book and smoking while others wait for them to return with the shopping. She is then seen smiling as Lucci, having recovered from his injuries, is discharged from the hospital. She is later seen with the team playing bowling, though her superhuman strength resulted in her essentially launching the bowling balls into the walls.

However, CP9 had to stop their bowling match to deal with the problem of the Candy Pirates in St. Poplar causing a ruckus, so they became temporary vigilantes by beating them up. Kalifa is shown using her signature kicks to deal with one of the pirates, as the crowd cheer amazed at the strength of the group. However, after Lucci violently eliminates the captain, CP9 determine that they can't stay in St. Poplar any longer, and so they prepare to leave, but not before Kalifa receives a flower from a small girl (to the shock of Fukurou, Jyabura and Kumadori).

They shipped off to their homeland, where they watch a new generation of CP9 being trained. Captain Very Good arrives to capture them, but they refuse to let him disturb their old home. As CP9 battled, and eventually defeated the Marine troops led by Very Good, Lucci contacted a physically crippled Spandam using a Den Den Mushi, and promised to come for him soon. With that CP9 began their aim to eliminate their former director by leaving their homeland and setting sail.
