Nicknamed “Fire Fist Ace”, Portgas D. Ace is the second division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates. Although he was first implied to be the son Monkey D. Dragon and therefore the older brother of Luffy, he is actually the son of Gol D. Roger and Portgas D. Rouge. In order to hide his existence from the World Government, Rouge carried him for twenty months before giving birth. She died from exhaustion shortly afterwards, and Ace took her surname, owing her a great debt.
