Nami is a pirate and the navigator of the Straw Hat Pirates. She was first introduced as the second crew member to join Luffy. Her dream is to draw a complete map of the world, which she notes has already begun with her sketches of East Blue.
As a child, Nami suffered from a fever that lasted for days on end, during which her mother cared for her every single day without fail until she recovered. This caused Nami to develop an intense fear towards being ill in any way shape or form and will do anything in order to avoid it unless sick or injured because if she does get sick, her mother won’t be there to take care of her due to work.
Nami’s willingness to do anything to achieve her dream is a result of her poor childhood. When she was six years old, Nami’s mother died from an illness while the two were on a shopping trip in the North Town of Cocoyasi Village.
Nami is a compulsive liar, telling outrageous lies to people when it is unnecessary and entertaining. She also tends to keep secrets and tells only partial truths.However, she was completely honest about her affection for Luffy, even though most of the crew already assumed as much. A running gag between Nami and Luffy is that Luffy would not remember what had happened most of the time, so he would ask her all over again.
