Fans eagerly await the highly anticipated release of One Piece chapter 1084, scheduled for May 22, 2023. While counting down the days, fans can enjoy the fanmade translation of the raw scans, providing an early glimpse into the exciting events to come. This chapter continues Sabo’s flashback of the Reverie, picking up where the previous installment left off.
A significant portion of the chapter revolves around Nefertari Cobra, the ruler of Arabasta, as he engages in a pivotal meeting with the Five Elders. These enigmatic figures, known as the highest-ranking Celestial Dragons who exert control over the One Piece world, have a critical role in shaping the narrative. However, the intensity of the encounter escalates when Im, the cryptic and elusive true leader of the World Government, unexpectedly interrupts the proceedings.
Adding to the intrigue, chapter 1084 introduces readers to Queen Lily, an ancestor of the Nefertari Family. Queen Lily emerges as a key figure during the establishment of the World Government, raising questions about her connection to Cobra and Vivi’s predecessor. Im, with their enigmatic knowledge, seems intimately familiar with Queen Lily, further deepening the mysteries surrounding their relationship.
It’s important to note that this article contains significant spoilers from the One Piece manga up to chapter 1084, so proceed with caution.
The chapter begins with Nefertari Cobra on the verge of his private audience with the Five Elders. As Cobra initiates the meeting, he takes a moment to recount the origins of the World Government. It harks back 800 years to the conclusion of the Void Century when the Ancient Alliance, comprising 20 kingdoms, successfully overthrew the Ancient Kingdom. The rulers of these kingdoms then formed the World Government, establishing the foundations of the present-day system.
Within the 20 Kingdoms, all were considered equal, resulting in the creation of the Empty Throne. To symbolize their commitment never to seize the throne’s power, each monarch placed a weapon around the seat. Additionally, research into the Void Century and the Ancient Kingdom was strictly forbidden.
However, an intriguing exception to this rule emerges. Despite being part of the alliance, Queen Lily Nefertari of Arabasta refused to become a Celestial Dragon. Instead, she chose to return to Arabasta to continue her reign. However, her journey back to her homeland took a tragic turn, and she mysteriously vanished, leaving her younger brother to assume the throne. Surprisingly, no mention of Queen Lily can be found in any known texts regarding the period after the Void Century.
During Cobra’s recollection, the Five Elders maintain a silent facade, yet their furrowed brows betray their inner thoughts. When Cobra confronts them directly about Queen Lily’s fate, they claim ignorance, providing no further details on the subject. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Cobra and the Five Elders, Im has been eavesdropping on their conversation from the “Room of Flowers” within Pangaea Castle. In a chilling twist, Im enters the “Phantom Room” where Cobra and the Five Elders are in discussion.
Im’s presence elicits shock from Cobra, whose somber expression deepens as Im ascends the stairs to the Empty Throne and boldly sits upon it. This moment leaves Cobra in a state of horror and disbelief. Im, in a cryptic murmur, utters the name “Lily,” bringing the chapter to a dramatic close and leaving readers eagerly anticipating the next installment.
The true nature of the connection between Queen Lily, Im-sama, and the enigmatic “Will of D.” remains shrouded in uncertainty. However, it becomes evident that there is a profound link waiting to be unveiled. The fact that the benevolent Nefertari Family, known for their kind-hearted nature, played a role in the establishment of the oppressive World Government raises intriguing questions. Queen Lily’s absence from the historical records and her sudden disappearance imply significant events that have yet to be fully revealed.
Chapter 1084 hints at Im’s age, suggesting that they may have lived for more than 800 years. Im’s reference to Nefertari Lily as simply “Lily” instead of “Queen Lily” implies a level of familiarity and acquaintance with the former monarch, who existed approximately 800 years ago.
In a previous chapter (906), a striking revelation occurred when Im was shown holding bounty posters and photographs. Notably, Im defaced the images of Luffy, Blackbeard, and Shirahoshi, but spared the picture of Vivi Nefertari. Vivi, the daughter of Cobra and a dear friend and honorary member of the Straw Hat Pirates, bears a remarkable resemblance to Queen Lily as depicted in Cobra’s memories. This intriguing connection between Vivi and Lily has led fans to speculate that Im’s actions may be driven by a past attraction or fondness for Lily, explaining why Vivi’s image was spared.
A captivating theory emerges from these speculations. Some fans propose that Queen Lily may have been the founder of Amazon Lily, the empire situated on the Island of Women. The name “Amazon Lily” itself seems to pay homage to Queen Lily, and it aligns with the notion that she sought refuge on an island that offered protection from pursuers due to its location within the treacherous Calm Belt, infested with Sea Kings.
According to this theory, Queen Lily and Im may have been betrothed, but circumstances prevented their union. Lily’s escape to the Island of Women and the subsequent establishment of a society where women hold power, strictly prohibiting relationships with men, could be attributed to her flight from Im. Consequently, Im’s interest in Vivi, who hails from Lily’s bloodline and shares a visual resemblance to her, might be driven by a desire to have her as a spouse.
Alternatively, an even more shocking possibility emerges. The silhouette of Queen Lily in Cobra’s recollections bears an uncanny resemblance to that of Im. This revelation prompts some fans to speculate that Lily and Im might be the same person. It is postulated that Lily, as the singular malevolent individual among the benevolent Nefertari Family, may have employed the ultimate ability of the Ope-Ope Fruit to attain immortality, either by her own volition or through coercion by Im. This would explain Lily’s mysterious disappearance and Im’s intimate knowledge of her. It also aligns with the Ancient Egyptian inspiration behind the Nefertari Family and the Arabasta Kingdom, where mummification was associated with the pursuit of eternal life.
Another possibility arises, suggesting that Im may be an entirely different individual whose consciousness has been transplanted into Lily’s body using the Ope-Ope Fruit’s power to switch personalities.
In light of these revelations, it is evident that Cobra’s survival through the Reverie is unlikely, and Sabo will face wrongful accusations regarding Cobra’s demise. Cobra’s inquisitive nature and witnessing Im sitting on the Empty Throne likely make him a target for the World Government. The true extent of Im’s authority, as the hidden political force behind the scenes, remains concealed from the general public. If Cobra were to survive and expose Im’s presence, the World Government would face irreparable damage, as the perception of the Empty Throne’s ownerlessness is a crucial aspect in maintaining the illusion of the system’s fairness.
Chapter 1084 strongly implies a personal connection between Im-sama and Queen Nefertari Lily, hinting that unraveling this connection could provide key insights into the true leader of the World Government. As the story progresses, the revelation of the history, motivations, and ultimate goals of these enigmatic figures will undoubtedly send shockwaves through the One Piece world.
With each new chapter, Eiichiro Oda continues to captivate readers, skillfully weaving a complex tapestry of characters and narratives. As fans eagerly await the release of One Piece chapter 1084, the anticipation and excitement for the next chapter’s revelations continue to grow. The stage is set for an epic clash between the Straw Hat Pirates, the Revolutionary Army, and the overwhelming might of the World Government. The dawn of a new era in the world of One Piece draws ever closer, promising unforeseen alliances, heartbreaking sacrifices, and the ultimate quest for freedom and justice.
