Punk is a heavily-tattoed bruiser proudly hailing from the City of Science, to the point of having the Ad Astra flag tattooed on his right arm. Physically powerful and frighteningly charismatic, Punk commands the attention of any room he’s in, if he so desires. His tattoos are many and extensive, covering his arms, shoulders, chest, dotting his stomach, and even creeping around his neck and behind his ear. He cuts his dark hair short and sports a full beard.

Punk dresses unassumingly, usually seen wearing black pants and a gray hooded tank top. With the sleeves down and the hood up, Punk is nearly unrecognizable. His hands are almost always covered, in athletic tape or gloves, depending on the day. Punk usually wears a shirt with some kind of slogan on it, often a shout-out to his hometown of Ad Astra.

Punk is unpredictable, with only his sense of humor and his civic pride being consistent from day to day. He alternates between calm and intense, anger and happiness, and activity and laziness.

Bio:

Punk grew up in Ad Astra to working parents — his mother worked in a bank, and his father worked at one of the labs in town. He did not live with them through adolescence, and was taken out of that home for unknown reasons and bounced from foster home to foster home before finding Ace and Colt and starting the Science City Saints.

Punk first crossed Omega’s path as a member of the Science City Saints, alongside Colt and Ace, where he fought against, and lost to, Kogel, Naoko Kyuudou, and Champ Justice in Donnerich. In that encounter, Punk used a chain with a snake’s head on both ends called the Anaconda Vice, which he lost to Naoko.

The next encounter with Punk came in Garamonde, where he and Colt, as the Science City Saints, lost to Order & Chaos (Kalil Kiran and Darien Reinholder). His second appearance was in the No Limits tournament, where he lost to the Commander of SeeD, Canute. In both of these appearances, he used the pikehammer GTS as his weapon.

He did not run into the party again until meeting Naoko on the Korindall Line to Luxuocidad, where he made fast friends with Katari Front and then helped Naoko extinguish a fire on the train in the middle of the night. During this trip, Naoko deduced that he was part of the Boryokudan, and could not explain away his odd helpfulness.

Punk lives his life by the credo of being Straight Edge, which means that he “is better than you,” if you were to ask him what it means. It also means that he does not allow any alcohol, nicotine, or drugs of any sort into his system. At Garamonde this manifested in an unexpected immunity to status effects.
