PostSubject: Torogasu Tanku   Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:58 am

Torogasu Tanku ("Clubtail Tanku")





The Magniventris is a lime green marine battleship with additional armor plating, derived from Tanku's ankylosaurus theme.

Ship Flag:
A green Marine flag with a transparent ankylosaurus head in the background.

Home Village/Ocean:
Sabaody Archipelago, Grand Line


Tanku has a bright, leaf-green mohawk that stretches from his forehead to the nape of his neck. The rest of his head is meticulously shaved and the mohawk is always kept orderly and straight. His eyebrows are rather thin and are a slightly darker shade of green than his hair. His eyes are a harsh emerald green and always look emotionless despite their shocking color. His nose is pointed at the end, but otherwise rather ordinary. Tanku's mouth is usually set in a cold grin. Behind his lips are two rows of teeth, which, peculiarly enough, are all molars. His chin and upper lip are always clean with not a hair out of place on them.

Tanku has a rather large and muscular figure. Standing at 6'2" (~188cm), he is quite imposing when facing down an enemy. He has broad shoulders, a broad chest, and a broad abdomen, but is by no means fat. He is almost all muscle. He wears a black button-down shirt without a tie and his Navy coat, which has the characters for "Justice" on the back and wears dark green (instead of the standard red) epaulettes on his shoulders and has dark green cuffs on the sleeves, which he rarely puts his arms through. Underneath his shirt, on the left side of his abdomen, he bears a brand from a bandit group that enslaved him when he was a child.

His pants are a bright green that is slightly off from his hair. These are slightly baggy, but are always held up by a plain black belt. He is often seen with his hands in his pockets. Tanku wears a pair of black boots, which seem to be suitable for any weather or terrain as he is always seen with them on. The left boot is tied with only one loop and the two loose ends of the lace hanging on either side of the shoe.

Tanku was born in Grove 10 of Sabaody Archipelago. His mother, from what little he can recall, was a beautiful woman who was unfortunate enough to draw the attention of a particularly vicious pirate by the name of Oakfoot Lee. When he was just six years old, a group of slavers broke into his house. They led his mother and him away in chains while he cried out to her to save him. She could do nothing but follow the slavers and pray someone showed up quickly enough to save them from being sold. Her prayers never came true, and the two were auctioned separately. Tanku cannot remember who bought his mother, but he was purchased by a group of bandits who were passing through Sabaody on their way home from Fishman Island. They took him to an island near Sabaody where they had a base and kept him there, forcing him to work through long days and nights on end. They branded him with a large "S" for "Slave". Instead of simply bowing to their will, however, he vowed to grow stronger. And through their efforts to kill him, he became much more powerful. His muscles developed, and by the eighth year after he was sold he was stronger than most of the bandits in the camp. One night, he finally mustered up enough courage to do something. He slipped out of his tent after picking the lock on his chains and barricaded all the buildings in the camp. Then, he reached into the campfire and pulled out a burning branch. He lit the buildings one by one, then took their boat and sailed out into the harbor to the sounds of his tormentors' screams of agony.

For the next four years, Tanku worked in Sabaody doing odd jobs for the residents of the area and occasionally working as a bodyguard for tourists. When he turned 18, he decided to enlist in the Marines to make sure that what happened to him and his mother would never happen to anyone again.
After enlisting in the Marines, he quickly found himself at the rank of Sergeant after leading a charge against a group of pirates who were entrenched on an island in the Grand Line. He fell out of favor for a while after he became disgusted with his commanding officer for arresting a group of bandits, despite the fact that they had stolen from a town where many of the citizens were rich in order to feed a group of starving orphans from the next town, and requested a transfer. He continued to be promoted, eventually reaching the rank of Commodore after slaying the very pirate who fathered him, Oakleg Lee, who had a bounty of $50,000,000 and helping to dismantle a criminal organization based out of Little Garden.

Tanku is currently patrolling the Grand Line with his platoon. He has dedicated himself not necessarily to the eradication of all pirates, but to the protection of innocent lives and preservation of the World Government.

Tanku is always up for a good time. Sometimes he finds himself wondering why he picked such a serious career, but when he recalls his mother and his anguish as a child, he remembers exactly why he does what he does. He is very serious about his work and does not like to stop and banter with his opponents when he fights. Tanku is rather modest when it comes to his ability in combat and does not like to brag. He is not one to toy with opponents.

Tanku loves his platoon dearly and would do anything to save them. He is always the first man off the ship and the last one on the ship when they disembark to battle. He personally buries and conducts a memorial service for any man who falls under his command, showing his dedication to those who serve under him. He follows a code of Moral Justice; that is to say, he will not indiscriminately kill a pirate just because he/she is a pirate. He believes ensuring the safety of the citizens is the most important aspect of his job. After killing the bandits as a teenager, he realized that although revenge is sweet, it always comes at a cost. His brand is constantly there to remind him of this.

Devil Fruit:
Kyōryū-Kyōryū no Mi- Moderu Ankyrosauru (Dinosaur-Dinosaur Fruit- Model Ankylosaurus)
The eater of this Ancient Zoan can transform into any of his three forms
-Full Human- This is the user's standard human form. Like many Zoan users, the Devil Fruit has increased his/her melee prowess even when he/she is not transformed.
-Half Human- The user adapts the tail (complete with badass club end) and protective armor of the ankylosaurus, but not the quadruped motion nor the sheer physical mass of the dinosaur. In this form, the Ankylosaurus-Human is both agile and durable, but not to the extreme of either the human or the fully transformed ankylosaurus. He/she can also roll into a ball in order to move and protect him/herself.
-Ankylosaurus- The user gains the full form of the ankylosaurus. His/her sheer mass at this point is deadly when charging and the tail is much heavier, resulting in crushing blows. However, this is at the cost of much dexterity, as the ankylosaurus's massive armor makes it difficult to move. As a fully armored dinosaur, the ankylosaurus is extremely durable and capable of dishing out a lot of damage.
Ancient Zoan

Special Abilities:
Tanku is extremely skilled in close combat. He is capable of using Tekkai and Rankyaku (with his tail and legs), although he has not mastered Rokushiki.

Learned Techniques:
Rankyaku- The Rankyaku is a powerful projectile technique, in which the users start by kicking at very high speeds and strength, sending out a sharp compressed air blade that can slice objects and greatly damage a human body. However, it has been shown that almost any length of appendage (such as a tail or neck) at high velocities are also capable of this move.

Tērukurabu Rankyaku- Tanku uses his tail (only in half-human or ankylosaurus form) in order to launch a much more powerful Rankyaku.

Tekkai- The Tekkai hardens the users' muscles to the level of iron, in order to nullify damage taken from attacks. However, it can be broken by strong enough forces. When Tekkai is active, the user is unable to move. Tekkai can also be used to enhance the users attacks by the increased density one gets from using Tekkai, similar to Busoshoku Haki.

To protect the world from devastation and to preserve the lives of innocents.

If you can tell me where it says he has Haki, I will pay you a million imaginary dollars.

Oh, sorry, I edited that out to prevent anyone from seeing an approved haki character and trying to make more.
You're good to go
