Well, this might be a tad late but it is something I have always wondered about. Nyon made the point that in her youth she caught the disease hancock got (fall in love) and fled the island in order to be saved from the disease. My interpretation of that is that she basically went to follow her love and then returned for whatever reason. So my question is, who exactly was this person Nyon fell in love with and caused her to leave the island? Will this person ever be relevant in the future story? Nyon as empress of the kuja was perhaps pretty well known in the past so perhaps the man she fell in love with was also in his own way pretty remarkable.
It was Garp . No seriously I have no idea but I hope Oda incorporates it somehow in the story.
It's distinctly possible that it's going to be addressed at some point. I wouldn't be surprised to have that individual aid the SHs in some context later on. It wouldn't be the first passing remark that gained a significant reveal years later.
He was confirmed to know Nyun by her name, Gloryosa. He also said that they lived together healthy & happy(Gloriosa, Hancock, and her two sisters). " Health" "Love Sickness"? Rings a bell?
When Hancock revealed her past to Luffy, Gloriosa said that she took care of them(Hanock & her sisters). The closest place to Marijoa is Shabaody. Rayleigh has been living there for a long time now. And if Gloriosa could find them there, then what has brought her from Amazon Lily all the way there in the first place? And could a woman who has love sickness stay on Sabaody & leave her lover, who is supposedly not on Sabaody, out of her reach? In such case, staying on Sabaody would just worsen her homeostasis, or simply her health condition. And could a woman who let her lover out of her reach be happy and healthy on sabaody? Unless Rayleigh was her lover
One more thing: Amazon Lily warrior are known to be strong. I don't think their empress would fall in love with a weakling though. & Rayleigh has qualities that must attract such woman.

Oda pretty much thinks of Rayleigh and Shakky as a couple, so I doubt he and Nyon were together once. The reason they lived together is because she was exiled for leaving the country. At some point she met Rayleigh and Shakky, lived with them, then found the sisters, took them in and eventually they moved back to Amazon Lily.
Exactly. If they were lovers at one point then they would have been kinda awkward around each other, or something like that.Quote:
Yeah that too, but I'm not sure if he was serious about it.Someone made a fanart about those two and he commented about how they looked good together, or something like that.Quote:
Well at this point I think it's someone who hasn't been shown yet, but for whatever reason they couldn't be together. Everything points to him being some sort of outlaw, or a pirate, maybe from Roger's crew. It would be funny if it was Crokus. But what I'm more interested in knowing is what is a mutual love, or a one sided love like Hancock's?If it's one sided, then it would explain why it didn't work out.
here in the top right panel, while Rayleigh was talking to Hancock's sisters, she was nowhere to be seen. The next panel that follows it thereafter displays only the reactions of the sisters textually. In those two panels, she had a sufficient amount of time in which she might've been reacting silently to his presence. And in the third next panel, we could assume that, upon hearing what Hancock's sisters were shouting, in the panel aforementioned, she came back to reality and reacted to that.
Let's also not forget that she could have been long cured from her Love Sickness in which case it would be natural for her not to have any blushful reaction. And if Rayleigh had a lover about whom only Gloriosa & some of his closest friends(Shakie) know, it would be understandable for her to sooner or later accept it & start behaving casually towards his presence.
Oda-sensei could've avoided her reaction wittingly just as he avoided the blackening of Haki in the war.

That seems to be a bit of a stretch to me. It sounds like oda hinted at something between them by doing the exact opposite of what would actually hint at something between them even if one sided. I mean, you are saying oda supposedly avoided showing a reaction from her to hint at there being something between them. That does not make sense at all IMO. If oda had wanted to hint at something in their past then he would have actually shown something. Absence of something does not make evidence in this context IMO.
Nyon's lover is probably someone from Gol Rogers ship. Why would she comeback? Because Rogers ordered the crew to seperate
Also, in case the first possibility is off, we can assume that Gloriosa has long been cured of her Lover Sickness in which case it would be natural for her to not display a blushful reaction.
By the way, I apologize for not replying to this part. I was more focused on the first idea of your reply.
Gloriosa was to begin with a pirate. She was a kuja, they are by definition a tribe/nation of pirates. In this case the situation would be more along switching sides rather than a turn to piracy in itself because pirate crews tend to be enemies of one another. Perhaps that is the reason why gloriosa even now does not have a good standing in the tribe, because not only she abandoned her people but also she joined an enemy crew.
I am more of the idea that her lover hasn't been met yet. How do you work that into the story if we have already met the person? Rayleigh is as far as we know at sanbody drinking himself to death and stealing... They would actually have to meet him for there to be any relevance in the gloriosa bit. It makes more sense that in the future they run into whoever this person was or someone who was familiar with the situation.
