Falcon ( (はやぶさ) , Hayabusa), real name Albert Lee (アルバート・リー , Arubāto Rī), also known as The Roving Death ( () (ぼう) , Rabō; lit. "The Silk Death"), originally The King of Destruction ( () (かい) (おう) , Hakai-ō)[1], is an A-List Gladiator and one of the 13 representatives of Purgatory in the Kengan Association VS Purgatory Tournament, as well as one of the first introduced.[2]

Appearance

Falcon is a young man with windswept hair, sharp eyes and a decent build. His fingernails and toenails are remarkably sharp.

While in his formal attire he wears his black suit finishing his outfit off with Aviator sunglasses and a pair of black gloves.

When in the arena, he sports a sleeveless gi and bands around arms and ankles.

Personality

Falcon is a rationalist with a romantic side. By his account, one of the reasons he became a wrecker was to avoid the death penalty. After watching a movie about ninjas, he later developed an obsession with them, motivating him to emulate them to the point that he speaks in an archaic way while putting on theatrics. As part of his obsession, he also has ninja memorabilia all over his room. Due to his obsession, he likes evoking the style of a ninja even outside of a fight, having his right pointer and middle fingers at eye level at nearly all times.

In the pursuit of reason, his fight with Rihito opened his eyes to the shell he was in. Recognising Rihito as the "Second Impact" in his life, Falcon tries to irrationally fight Kuroki Gensai despite his injuries, in an effort to grow as a person.

He also appears to have a subservient relationship with Toyoda Idemitsu, who had persuaded him to join Purgatory after learning of his obsession.

History

Albert is the third son of a wealthy owner of a trading firm in Singapore. In his childhood, he learned Tai Chi Chuan but quit before middle school. His martial arts experience after that is unknown.[1]

He started off his career as a magician, but since he couldn't make a living off magic alone, at some point, he worked as a "wrecker" on the side.

He was later scouted by the Beijing-based underground martial arts promotion known as "Heroic Tales" becoming its middleweight champion and making a small fortune out of it.[1] Before one of his matches, he went to the cinema to watch a movie about ninjas. Since then, he developed an obsession with them, to the point that he used trial-and-error to develop his own style of Ninjutsu and become a ninja himself.

At some point, he was scouted by Toyoda Idemitsu himself and he eventually joined Purgatory.

Plot

Falcon was first seen accompanying Toyoda Idemitsu to a Kengan match featuring a former A-List gladiator. After the match's cessation, he accompanied Toyoda as the latter went to greet Yamashita Kazuo. Afterwards, while leaving the venue, Toyoda asked Falcon to do him a favour to which Falcon responded that he awaited his master's command.

After the first round of the tournament, he took up the stage to fight against Rihito. After showing off his skills by cutting a tennis ball, as the fight began he quickly used misdirection to hit Rihito, who was able to guard anyway. He then proceeded to attack him again but was made aware of Rihito's impressive insight, in spite of the data he had about him. As the battle continued Falcon succeeded in stabbing Rihito with his foot before declaring that the man he really wished to face was Kuroki Gensai himself. He then started pummelling Rihito by using his techniques, putting The Superman on the defence. As he kept attacking him Rihito started to run away only to be hit by Falcon once again. While attacking once more Falcon was finally stabbed by Rihito's Razor's Edge. After acknowledging Rihito's true power, Falcon switched to his last resort and by using a combination of Owl Talon Kick and Toxic Avenger; he was finally able to poison his opponent and slow him down. Unfortunately, he was still pummeled once again by Rihito, turning their fight into a race against time. In the end Falcon was able to put Rihito into a rear-naked choke, ending the match. After the match, he decided to reach Kuroki Gensai and fight him in a hallway of the dome, being beaten with one chop by the older fighter.

Power & Abilities

Falcon is a powerful practitioner of Ninjutsu, using ninja tricks and his experience as an ex-magician to trick his enemy and attack them. His carnivore-like fingernails and toenails, the result of a particular partial training passed down among ninjas, are sharp enough to cut a tennis ball with extreme precision. He's also a very fast fighter who hits without hesitation. These skills allowed him to become the middleweight champion in a Chinese underground martial arts promotion. The fact that Falcon is able to almost effortlessly pummel a fighter of Rihito's level and that he's regarded by the likes of Muteba Gizenga as "one of the three best wreckers he knows" are unquestionable proofs of his overall power.

Despite winning his match against Rihito, Falcon acknowledges that he won't be able to defeat him a second time as he is, now that Rihito will now know his tricks.

Falcon-Style Ninja Arts ( (はやぶさ) (りゅう) (にん) (ぽう) , Hayabusa-ryū Ninpō)

Falcon's personal style of ninjutsu, created as a homage to his love of ninjas.

Misdirection

By leaving impression with his hands and seals , Falcon can used it as a feint to threw surprise attacks. By combine with his Sidestep, Falcon make his attacks more unpredictable.

Damascened Thrust ( () (がん) () き, Zōgan Tsuki)

With his hands clasped Falcon strikes his opponent in the chest with his deadly fingernails

Fierce Attack Formation (猛撃態 (もうげき たい) , Mōgeki Tai)

As he rushes and keeps pummelling his enemy, Falcon slashes through their skin with his carnivore-like claws.

Lotus King ( (れん) () (おう) , Renge-ō)

A combination of misdirection and sidestep, this technique is a fast and powerful barrage of blows that both confuses and damages the opponent.

Owl Talon Kick ( (きょう) (そう) (きゃく) , Kyō Sōkyaku)

This technique allows the user to stay airborne and use their opponent as a step-stool while attacking them with their feet. Wakatsuki Takeshi remarks that a karate practitioner he knows uses a similar move. The move can also be perfomed on the ground, as a front-kick.

Sidestep ( (かた) () かし, Katasukashi)

Basically a simplified version of the fake Yuzaki Mumon's "Weishen". Falcon throws off the timing of the attack long enough to take his opponent by surprise. This technique is more effective on someone with greater insight like Rihito.

Sparrow Stab ( (すずめ) () し, Suzume Zashi)

After evading the enemy, the user of this move stabs the opponent's nape with their sharp big toe. Falcon used this move on Rihito in an attempt to finish the match quickly, only for Rihito to come back up.

Toxic Avenger ( (とく) (ぶつ) (ふく) (しゅう) (しゃ) , Tokubutsu Fukushū-Sha)

A result of training only his big toes in Yao-Xiao, Falcon's kicks are imbued with a weak poison that only starts activating once the poison enters the opponent's bloodstream repeatedly. It has a relatively minute effect.
