2. Pekoms is an awakend zoan-fruit user (like the mino-animals found in impel down.) It's probably a legendary-type (like marco's Pheonix) judging by the fact that his anatomy is that of a creature from Chinese Mythology.
You mean like that lion-turtle in Avatar: The Last Airbender? If that's what it is then he is one of the mythical Zoan then.
I noticed that Tashigi just did exactly what Mihawk did back in chapter 50, only this time with a cannonball instead of bullets. Looks like she has mastered the 'gentleness' way of the sword. Too bad that her eyesight is as bad as ever.
