Not everyone who the strawhats meet has what it takes to be in the crew. But when characters like Franky and Brook were introduced, it was very apparent that they would be joining, the only twist I feel was Robin joining after Alabasta. With all the talk about Carrot potentially joining as a full crew member soon, and with Jimbie's eventual return, I think it's a good time to ask what do you look for in a new Member of the Strawhat pirates? One of the big thinks I've noticed is when a female character enters the story people want them to join, even if other characters are not only better suited, but more developed and more interesting. We're 900 plus chapters into the story and at the point where characters need to either step up, or ship out. If the Strawhats do add one of two more characters what do we want from them?
