Skull is an Arcobaleno that holds the Violet Arcobaleno Pacifier, and is a member of the Carcassa Famiglia. Known as the Immortal Stuntman, Skull has the ability to almost negate any incoming damage and tolerate extreme amounts of pain.
Character Outline Edit
As head of the combat forces of the Carcassa Famiglia, he wears a full leather outfit and a large white motorcycle helmet; a similar uniform is worn by his subordinates. The helmet is equipped with a green visor and decorated with a picture of his animal partner, a giant armored octopus named Oodako whose tentacles follow his hand and finger movements. In both his Arcobaleno and adult forms, he wears eyeliner and has a teardrop-shaped tattoo under his left eye. He also wears lipstick. By his own admission, his adult form is a "pretty-boy hottie" and "seven heads tall".
He's quite powerful, as expected of someone chosen to be an Arcobaleno. However, he is nowhere near as capable as Reborn and Colonnello, both of whom look down on him. Reborn refers to Skull as his "errand boy" or "lackey", and Skull, though insulted, does not deny these allegations. In the anime, his character is described as a stuntman and in the manga, Skull is known to have been "hated by the grim reaper himself" for his stunt work. Proof of this is his ability to recover almost instantly from relentless physical abuse by Reborn and Colonnello.
Equipment & Abilities Edit
- Armored Muscle Body - Skull's special ability enables him to gain a large amount of muscle, though his infantile body stays the same size.
- Undead Body-Skull uses this technique to give himself immense durability.
- Oodako - Skull has a giant armored octopus named Oodako as his Animal Partner and uses it for a majority of his combat by controlling it with specific finger movements.
- Purifying Helmet - During the Arcobaleno Trials when Verde, in an attempt to kidnap the Arcobaleno, tried to use a mineral with properties similar to the Anti-Tri-Ni-Set radiation, Skull was seemingly unaffected. It was then shown by Verde that Skull's Helmet which he is commonly seen wearing as a baby has purification abilities.
- Airship - Skull's Airship is an airship Skull owns for offensive purposes. He used this airship to goad Hibari into fighting, but the airship was destroyed as a result.
