Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Staraptor
The Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Staraptor is a Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform into a Staraptor hybrid and a full Staraptor at will. It formerly belonged to Alexavier Dusten before his early demise. Dusty is thought to have hunted down the fruit during his 5 year absence, a fitting addition to his alias Dark Talon.
Dusty demonstrates the ability to not only perform a hybrid transformation but also a partial shift in many capacities, he has shown the ability to turn his arms into large wings as well as transforming his feet and hands into Talon like limbs. When using the fruit in any capacity, the carnivorous nature of the Staraptor grants him immense physical strength, dwarfing superhuman feats at certain points, the talons he can makes can easily damage steel as well as many other reinforced materials without the additional cutting prowess of some of his other techniques. When transformed in his hybrid form the speeds at which he fly at are said to create cracks in the air and cause extreme bursts of wind that blow away his surrounding area during the duration of his flight, it essentially acts as a protective aura.
The fruit also boosts his Close Combat fighting prowess as well as his Agility.
