Skull is the holder of the Cloud Arcobaleno Pacifier. Head of the combat forces of the Carcassa Famiglia, he wears a full leather outfit and a motorcycle helmet, which is copied by all his subordinates. His animal partner is a giant armored octopus named Oodako whose tentacles follow his hand and finger movements. He is implied to be not as powerful of an infant as Reborn and Colonnello, both of whom he calls his senpais, and is looked down upon and ridiculed by the two. Reborn considers Skull as someone's errand boy, and Skull, to his own dismay, does not deny the fact that the only person he was an errand boy to was Reborn. In the anime, it is known that his job was a stuntman. In the manga, Skull is known to have been "hated by the grim reaper himself" for his stunt work.
Skull is first seen in his assault on Mafia Land for the Carcassa Famiglia. He faced off against Reborn, but lost horribly when he was made unable to give commands to his pet octopus. Colonnello simultaneously obliterates all his sea forces.his airship, threatening to fire the cannons at Hibari if he refused to take the trial. Hibari and Ryohei manage to fend off Skull's attacks. Hibari then pierced the airship with his Vongola Box Weapon, causing the airship to lose control and almost to crash into Namimori Middle School.
After Byakuran was defeated, Skull and the rest of the Arcobaleno were revived because Yuni sacrificed herself to bring them back to life.Luce and Lal Mirch disappear, with only Colonello replacing them. The Arcobaleno all voice their confusion, when the man with the iron hat they met before becoming Arcobaleno asked them if they wanted to be freed from the Arcobaleno curse, Skull, along with the Arcobaleno except for Reborn, voicing his agreement. The man with the iron hat then explained how the person chosen to be turned back would get the opportunity; they had to fight to determine the strongest Arcobaleno. Verde expresses his disagreement, stating that even a baby would know the winner of a battle between a scientist and a hitman. However, the man with the iron hat states that they would pick representatives to fight for them. Reborn voices his distrust of him, the man with the iron hat angrily stating that he would leave and they would be in their current forms forever in response. However, Skull, with all the other Arcobaleno except for Reborn, agreed to the fight. Reborn, feeling pressure, agreed to it as well. Skull, however, piped up that he was unpopular and no one would fight for him. However, the man with the iron hat stated that he had prepared "emergency options" if they didn't find a representative. The dream ends, leaving Skull to go the next day to the riverside to feed Enma's cats, demanding him to fight for him in return for feeding the cats. Skull is later on seen asking the Simon Famiglia's transfer students to help him in their home, various members dissuading Adelheid to agree as well as scoffing at his bold claims of previously being in his adult form a "pretty-boy hottie" and "seven heads tall", which made Julie imagine an ugly adult-Skull. Later, Adelheid agrees, though misunderstanding, telling Enma to tuck Skull into bed.
Later during the first day of the representative battle, Skull watches as Enma fights Varia alone. Enma was losing, and Skull was worried about the former's safety; suddenly, he remembered the reminder Tsunomichi gave about the "present" activation, which gives the Arcobaleno a "present" that the man with the iron hat prepared. Skull makes use of this and speaks the words necessary: "present, please", and the Arcobaleno curse is removed from him, also allowing him to join the battle. However the match ends before he is able to take action.
On the second day of battle, Skull was just playing around, as no one had challenged his team, when suddenly the Vindice attacked them and severely injured his representatives. Skull, frightened, asks them who they were and calls them thieves after they take his representatives' Rainbow Wristwatches, but is punched through his Purifying Helmet by Bermuda von Veckenschtein, who then takes his wristwatch.
