- —Mr. Draco
Infamous for his might and wits, Yanbaal inforces his duty as a Warlord through the Grand Line, be it through direct combat or negotiations. For that very reason, he retained his ties in the Underworld as Seasons (加味 Kami), seeking to interrupt various deals in favor of the World Government.
Yan is shown to have a sort of laid-back behavior, being very carefree and straight when dealing with things, despite pausing at times when he is talking. He tends to smile a lot when engaging in communication. Yanbaal is seemingly oblivious to the fact he has an intimidating presence, frowning when people are surprised at his sudden appearances.
The Shichibukai doesn't like when people assume things about him, quickly scolding someone for taking hasty conclusions. He also doesn't like when he has to repeat orders or statements to someone. Even if he has repeated himself, Yan is willing to give people a chance and back off from his business, showing off immense patience when dealing with people. He was also patient when listening to Ashley's arguments, remaining completely silent as means of agreement. Despite it, he doesn't seem to be bothered by what he deems as hypocrisy, going as far as to be one himself at times, seen when he told Barney Kettle to not think low of himself yet calling him scum.
Oddly, Yanbaal likes to refer to someone by their Epithet, identifying people due to their most notable characteristics. When interacting with said people, Yan may even become casual, despite not knowing them personally.
Yanbaal, like most characters, has a unique style of laughter, it being "Kakakakaka".
Ashley: Despite her sudden appearance, Yanbaal was not wary of Ashley and agreed to help her with dealing the Rum, only so that he would meet Veno. However, he didn't exactly do much of his job, which implies he was not being truthful to her.
After knowing that Ashley betrayed them all, Yanbaal held no grude against her or whoever she was. Instead, he just opted to leave Elbaf and report to the Government.
Powers & Abilities Edit
Possessing a former bounty of 400,000,000 shows how much Yanbaal was viewed as a threat to the world as a whole. As a member of the Shichibukai, Yanbaal's presence has not diminished, regarded as influential and feared throughout all the seven seas, furthermore, being a member of the Warlords means that Yanbaal makes up a portion of the Three Great Powers. This also makes it where he is considered one of the strongest pirates around.
Both Lancaster Hecate and Bimore O. Jack, two of his Shichibukai comrades, even agree that the former and Yanbaal may just be enough to deal with an entire division of the Xros Pirates. Notably, they don't even march on with a proper plan and manage to obtain victories, which proves those claims true. By his lonesome, Yanbaal could push back a New World Veteran such as Crowley Alistair, overpowering him through tactics and might, despite not obtaining a clear victory. The fact that someone like Jack, considered a runner-up for Strongest Swordsman, even has faith in his and Hecate's skills speaks volumes of Yan's might.
Barney Kettle, a notorious pirate, chose to not engage Yanbaal during the whole Operation of Elbaf, and deemed the other Pirates foolish for fighting him. Moreover, Yan's feats, alongside Hecate's, were such that the rest of the Notch Pirates decided not to engage them at all.
Physical Prowess Edit
With his immense strength and resilient muscles, Yan is capable of easily pushing people several yards, be it by actually throwing them, or lightly hitting them. His mere punches can create pressure missiles, shaking an entire hill, while his stronger ones break whole forests and mountains. This physical might gets even higher once Yanbaal makes use of his many paper constructs, specially his weapons, and Haki to the point the air waves they cause can push the sea away, cause hurricanes, and partially cut far-away structures. Almost as if everything around him is doomed to react to his actions.
Yan is quite fast. He can catch all of Killer Jones' bullets and even throw some of them back at him, at the same time. All the while, he sneaked behind the Pirate and punched him before he could react.

Wit & Knowledge Edit
Tabart considered him to be smarter than the rest of the group, although, Yan says that being a Shichibukai doesn't automatically make him smarter. He can develop plans rather quickly. Despite the Rum Dealers' limited time before the submarine sank, Yanbaal could develop a plan involving his own powers, and Kettle's and Tabart's, although he didn't know everything about them.
