Even when entering into an unfortunate or unplanned situation such as engaging a Marine admiral in combat or having his ship sink in the Sea King infested waters of the Grand Line, Rayleigh remains completely calm, pushing forward through adversity with no hesitation.
He, like Whitebeard, seems to enjoy talking about the past and its great times, as well as the good old days of their near bygone era.
She then told them that they might find Rayleigh at Sabaody Park.
After the Straw Hat Pirates returned from the Human Auctioning House, where they found Rayleigh, he and the entire Straw Hat crew gathered at Shakky's bar.
Regardless of his age, Rayleigh is a muscular man with a broad chest and well built body.
During his first appearance in Buggy's flashback, he was seen wearing a t-shirt with an ornately decorated collar, a motif that appeared even in the long coat he wore during the Edd War.
However, he has changed his personality in his older years, becoming much more relaxed even when training Luffy.
Though he often has a serious air, Rayleigh enjoys going with the flow and appearing in unexpected places and in unexpected ways, especially given his status and age.
Rayleigh is not often headstrong, looking before he leaps and taking time to plan ahead before taking action, although he does not hesitate to act if needs be.Over the years, as his hair whitened, he grew it out.He also grew a beard from his initial striped facial hair.Rayleigh's relationship with most of the Roger Pirates is unknown.However, he had a close relationship with his captain Gol D. He later became the first mate of the Oro Jackson, the ship of the man who would conquer the Grand Line and be crowned by the world as the Pirate King.
