After the time-skip, he became captain of the Blackbeard Pirates' fifth ship.
He is voiced by Christopher Bevins.
Abilities and Powers
Laffite was a renowned Peace officer in the West Blue but was run out, due to scandal of violent behavior which led to his disappearance. Sometime later, he joined the Blackbeard Pirates becoming crew's navigator.
Laffite arrives at Mariejois interrupting the meeting between the warlords and marines. His presence causes them to wonder how he entered the base without detection. One marine officer recognizes him and points him out to Sengoku as Lafitte is amused by his reputation being brought up but shrugs it off. Lafitte soon offers his captain, Blackbeard, to be the new warlord to replace Crocodile as Sengoku questioned the latter's worth as he had no prominence to back up a nomination. Lafitte told him to give him the crew time as they are coming up with a strategy to earn a name for themselves.
Incident on Banaro Island
Post-Enies Lobby Arc
Laffite, along with the rest of the Blackbeard Pirates, hears about Monkey D. Luffy's declaration of war against the World Government on Enies Lobby. Laffite points out that Water 7 is famous for it's sea train and Blackbeard and his crew intend to go after Luffy (who is currently on Water 7, recuperating from his battle at Enies Lobby) but is intercepted by "Fire Fist" Portgas D. Ace, who had come to stop Blackbeard.
After a brief exchange of words, Ace and Blackbeard fight each other with their respective devil fruits, as Laffite and the rest of the crew retreat a far away distance and witness the battle between the two logia users.
Summit War Saga
Impel Down Arc
Laffite and the rest of the Blackbeard Pirates arrive and invade Impel Down and encounter Monkey D. Luffy, Jinbe, Crocodile, Ivankov and the rest. The crew later encounters the chief warden of Impel Down, Magellan, and is attacked and poisoned by him. The crew is later saved by Impel Down's Head Jailer, Shiliew, receiving an antidote from Magellan's poison. Laffite was seen smiling as Blackbeard offered Shiliew a chance to join the crew, an offer that was accepted by the latter.
After reaching Impel Down's lowest prison level, level 6, Blackbeard orders the prisoners to have a battle to the death and whoever is left still standing will join his crew.
After Ace's death, the Blackbeard Pirates reveal themselves to the marines as they stand on the half-destroyed execution scaffold. It is revealed that Blackbeard has recruited five new crew members: "Colossal Battleship" San Juan Wolf, "Crescent Moon Hunter" Catarina Devon Devon, "Corrupt King" Avalo Pizarro, "Heavy Drinker" Vasco Shot and the Head Jailer of Impel Down, Shiliew of the Rain.
After Blackbeard resigns his Shichibukai title, the crew are attacked by Whitebeard who their captain fights. Laffite and the rest of the crew attack Whitebeard on Blackbeard's orders. After Whitebeard's last words and death, Laffite and the crew cover Whitebeard up with a large black cloak with Blackbeard also going inside.
After some time passes, Laffite and the crew lift up the cloak to reveal Blackbeard and Whitebeard. Blackbeard then reveals that he has eaten Whitebeard's devil fruit, the Tremor-Tremor Fruit (Gura-Gura no Mi), Laffite and the crew seem happy and pleased for their captain. After the Red-Haired Pirates show up at Marineford, Blackbeard and his crew leave Marineford, apparently not yet ready to face Shanks.
The Blackbeard pirates were seen on a burning island in the New World resting from their battle at Marineford and having defeated as well as capturing the Bonney pirates. During this time, Laffite jokingly threaten to kill Avalo Pizarro for trying to become captain stating they were under Teach's command. He joined his fellows in mocking the helpless Bonney Pirates for losing to them so quickly.
They were hoping to get to get a ship form the Marines to go into New World but they realized that the deal was cut off when they saw Akainu on board a ship coming towards the island. They managed to escape from the island without getting caught and left Jewelry Bonney and her crew to be arrested.
A year after the crew killed Whitebeard, they fought the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates led by Marco and defeated them with ease.
The Blackbeard Pirates then used their captain's knowledge of Whitebeard's former territory to conquer it. Now that Blackbeard became a Yonko and the Blackbeard Pirates began collecting powerful devil fruits to enhance their fighting abilities.
The crew's number increased as well into ten squads, Laffite soon became the captain of Blackbeard's fifth fleet two years after the Battle of Marineford.
Laffite appeared along with Shiliew on board a ship. They were looking for Jesus Burgess. Burgess contacted them through a den-den mushi and informed them that he was at the base of the Revolutionary Army, Baltigo. He informed them to contact Blackbeard and his crew so they can arrive at the island to attack the Revolutionary Army.
The crew went through with their attack and invaded Baltigo, leaving the base in ruins before they were forced to retreat after briefly fighting Cipher Pol. Their attack left the status revolutionaries unknown but let the world learn where their headquarters were.
