Smoker is a Marine officer in One Piece. A smoke human after eating the Plume-Plume Fruit, Smoker is introduced as the Marine in charge of Loguetown, the last stop before the Grand Line. After failing to apprehend the Straw Hat pirates, he doggedly sets out in pursuit of them, clashing with Luffy in Alabasta, Marineford, and Punk Hazard. He currently is a vice admiral in the Marines and is the commander of the G-5 Marine Base. Despite being an officer of the law, Smoker is seen as a loose cannon among Marines and clashes with the top brass constantly; unlike many of the other Marines he does not follow the dogmatic rule of "Absolute Justice," preferring to adopt a more flexible approach. This has led him to ally with his rivals, the Straw Hats, in service of defeating the greaterevils at hand. Though he is obstinate and gruff, Smoker greatly cares for the Marines under his charge, especially his second in command Tashigi.
In the 4kids dub of One Piece, Smoker was renamed "Chaser" and was voiced by one of 4Kids' musicians, Russell Velazquez. For Funimation's ongoing in-house dub, Smoker is voiced by Greg Dulcie. Smoker had two VAs during his Odex tenure: first Joseph Murray, followed by Paul Pistore.
