Captain, Swinging Chain Pirates
Lask stands at a height of 7' 10" and is built of lean muscle. He has long, black hair that reaches to his mid-back and is shaggy the rest of the way around, generally hanging somewhere in his face. His eyes are a shade of cobalt blue. In terms of clothes, Lask wears a pair of dark pants that are obviously old, shown by the faded and torn spots among them. Rather than a belt, he wears a length of chain to hold the pants up. Lask chooses not to wear a shirt or shoes of any kind, instead wearing a dark brown duster.
Lask is a very lazy man, finding very few things worth his attention. Most who meet him can't ever believe that he is truly a captain. Lask will normally be found sleeping somewhere that he would be least likely to be disturbed in. Only a few things will actually rouse him. Those things are: food, alcohol, women and Logia eaters. Due to reasons unknown, Lask holds a particular disdain for any and all people with Logia abilities and derives a form of sick pleasure from fighting them and an even greater pleasure in hitting their "substantial body". When encountered by a Logia user, he gets a manic look on his face and behaves like a psychopath.
Little is known about Lask's history and it is up to much speculation. Only a few details are known and are only that way because of a slip in Lask's tongue. He was born on an unknown island in the South Blue and raised by his father and mother, who owned a tavern/physician's office that was frequented by Marines. At some point during his childhood (he never specified) a small group of Marines came in to get patched up after dealing with a low class pirate crew, the captain of which was with them at the time, waiting to be taken to the local Marine HQ for detainment. In a moment in which neither was being watched, this pirate managed to entice Lask into taking the last bit of treasure he was able to smuggle of the ship: the Kusari Kusari no Mi. The young boy gobbled it up, the Marines only taking notice after Lask had already been gifted by its powers. Nothing else is known of that day, as Lask hasn't told of it.
Nothing else is known of his history except that, at some point, he joined a pirate crew, or formed one himself, and began to sail. Since that time, his crew has grown infamous, largely due in part to Lask's particular habit of hanging Marines and/or other pirates over the mast of his ship, using his own chains. This act has garnered him the name of "The Hanged Man" and his crew and ship the moniker of "Swinging Chain", due to the multiple chains still on the mast.
Abilities; Devil Fruit: Kusari Kusari no Mi (Chain-Chain Fruit)
General Power Description:
The Chain-Chain Fruit grants the eater the ability to produce chains from his/her body. The eater can control the dimensions of the chains (thickness, weight, length, shape of the links, etc.). Once the chains have been produced, Lask can control their flight path with relative ease. He also tends to use the chains he produces to lift and/or throw objects. By doing this he can lift much more weight than he could with his body.
Like Kalifa's Awa Awa no Mi or Mr. 3's Doru Doru no Mi, the fruit is commonly misidentified as a Logia. This is false, however, as the eater is unable to turn his/her body into chains, only produce them. In addition to the basic manipulations of the chains, Lask has developed a choice few other manipulations based around combat.
Tadai Heisetsu (Heavy Link): Lask twists multiple links of chain into a tight ball. He then manipulates the weight and thickness of the chain to create a pseudo-wrecking ball. He uses this ball in a morningstar-esque fashion.
Surudoi Heisetsu (Sharp Link): Lask changes the shape and thickness of the links on the end of his chain. The links are changed to isosceles triangles and are flattened to the point that they become razor sharp. This technique is used as a long range stabbing/piercing/slashing weapon.
Lask is trained in Kenbunshoku Haki and Busoshoku Haki. While his skills in Kenbunshoku are average at best, his Busoshoku skills are honed to the point of near mastery. This is most likely due to the pleasure he derives from striking "substantial bodies" of Logia users.
