Character page for Tower of God's massive overarching organization, FUG.

Advertisement:

Unlike N.G.O. Superpower Wolhaiksong, they make no attempt to hide the fact that they fight against the Jahad Empire. Founded by Grace Mirchea Luslec, the so called "Absolute Darkness" of the Tower, motivated by the explicit goal of killing Jahad and the Heads of the 10 Great Families. Led by a group of ancient Elders and the Slayers, FUG is infamous for their extremist methods and their wide spread reach within the Tower. Their followers border on the fanatical, to the point of worshiping the Slayers, individuals deemed powerful enough to kill Jahad, as gods.

    Grace Mirchea Luslec 

Grace Mirchea Luslec

Tower Position: Fisherman

Rank: 15

Feared as the absolute darkness of the Tower, he is the head of the religious sect and criminal order FUG, which opposes Jahad and at one point took in Bam. What Grace looks like is currently a mystery.


  • A God Am I: Considered the "Living God" of FUG. Whether he believes this himself or not is unknown, since he has yet to make an appearance.
  • The Corrupter: Most within the Families consider him this.
  • Dragon Ascendant: He was once a subordinate to V, who once waged war against Jahad, but eventually committed suicide. Now Luslec is the one leading the crusade against the Tower's ruling class.
  • The Dreaded: Anybody who can defy the Families and constantly manage to get away with it without getting ended isn't somebody to take lightly.
  • Fallen Hero: Originally, he helped Jahad and his warriors in climbing the Tower. Then his master, V, rebelled against Jahad's rule and he presumably continued the cause.
  • Improbable Weapon: He too, uses a Hook.
  • The Magnificent: Given the nickname as the "Heretic" due to his act of defiance against Jahad, but also known as the "Tiger Fish".
  • Mysterious Backer: Despite being the leader of FUG, he is strangely OK with letting Bam do what he wants, to the ire of the other Slayers and Elders in the organization. Whether he's allowing this out of Pragmatic Villainy, because Bam might be the reborn son of his late master, or both is unknown.
  • Red Baron: Heretic.

    Ha Jinsung 

Ha Jinsung

Tower Position: Fisherman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jinsung_8534.jpg

Rank: Top 100

A high ranking FUG member, and a former teacher of Viole and Karaka. Compared to a lot of other folk seen within the FUG organization, Jinsung has been the least villainous, and prefers to see Viole move about freely during the Slayer Candidate's climb up The Tower.


  • Affably Evil: He may be nice, albeit too loud, but according to Hwaryun he came to the 21st Floor to kill all of Viole's companions, as he considers them too weak.
  • A Father to His Men: To Viole. He seems genuinely concerned when he visits Viole on the 36th Floor.
  • Agent Peacock: By proxy: he's the one to blame for 'Ole's FUG-tastic wardrobe. It's not that Jingsung doesn't dress well enough in his own right (if with a rather tastefully dishevelled theme), but he really went to town for his pupil.
  • Badass in Distress: He is captured by Jahad's forces. His disciples, Karaka and Baam team up to defeat Kallavan and rescue Jinsung.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Is loud, goofy and a bit dorky. He is also a High Ranker who can make most people's days go very badly if he feels the need to.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: See One-Man Army below.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Dark brown.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: He loved a girl who was taken by the Ha Family as a slave... and killed an entire branch of the family in revenge. Unfortunately, she died in the process. It's implied that he sees something of her in Viole, and that she was his reason for joining FUG.
  • The Dreaded: Khun, of all people, can't fully compose himself in his presence. Justified, since Jinsung annihilated an entire branch family in his past, and is infamous for killing members of the 10 Families whenever he has felt the need to.
  • Evil Mentor: Kind to Viole, but nonetheless a member of FUG and a true believer in their ideals.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: According to Hon Akraptor, he is nothing like the FUG of his imagination.
    • Had this attitude towards Bam when he first met him. It wasn't until he saw his Power Copying that he begin to take him seriously.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: He's both. He started out cynical, depressed, uninterested, fairly dissatisfied with everything to do with himself and FUG, all while smoking like a chimney. Since finding a little spark again teaching Viole and rubbing shoulders with the least likely of motley crews, he's started turning over, if not new, then forgotten leaves. And, is also trying to quit.
  • Necessarily Evil: His goal is noble. His means... not so much.
  • One-Man Army: Absolutely destroys all the men guarding Karaka's secret base, and treats them like children while he does it.
  • Pet the Dog: Sincerely wants the best for Viole, despite everything FUG has done to keep him on a leash.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: While he does indeed respect Viole, his leniency towards him is mostly a carrot and stick deal to keep him in the organization. In an argument with Karaka, he even states that he is ultimately devoted to his own plans, and that allowing Viole to assemble his own team does give FUG more hostages to strongarm him with.
    • Villain Has a Point: Karaka disobeys him and antagonizes Viole, heedless of the warnings. Thereby causing Viole to leave FUG. Blaming 'Ole for this isn't on Jinsung's to-do list, however. He did warn the idiots how pushing the lad would most likely go, and appears all set to aid Viole/Bam teach Karaka and company a few much-needed lessons in humility as a kind of training-and-survival project for all concerned... As, he also outright promised the twerps this would happen if they underestimated the young Irregular, too.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Treats Viole as a person rather than simply a tool, and was an instrumental part in giving him autonomy. Sure, there are strings attached (it's the Tower: there are always strings), but it comes across as mostly genuine.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Hwaryun's Blue.
  • Revenge: His family killed the woman he loved, causing him to turn to FUG.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Initially tried invoking this. Mostly got a "nah: smoking is lame — and second-hand smoke is bad for Miseng!" response from the latest batch of Regulars he got to interact with. Getting relegated to smoking outdoors for breaks by this bunch of close-knit losers had him rethinking a couple of his life choices.
  • Sweet Tooth: Ever since Wangnam brought him lollipops instead of cigarettes, Ha Jinsung has been seen munching on them; leading Rak to deem him Candy Turtle.
  • Team Mom: Strangely fits this role in the FUG-trio dynamic. He even goes out of his way to buy Viole clothes for every season, a habit which Viole doesn't know how to begin dealing with.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Says he's changed a lot and no longer kills people from the 10 Great Families on sight. This reassures Aguero not a bit.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Wants to create a better world. However, he wouldn't hesitate to kill a bunch of innocents to fulfill his goals. There are hints that he may be modifying his stance a little... Unless it's an act.

Slayers

    Karaka 

Karaka

Tower Position: Scout-Fisherman Hybrid (and also a Wave Controller)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/karaka_2831.jpg

A Slayer of FUG who never seems to take off his mask, and Ha Jinsung's former apprentice. Karaka is one of the main FUG members that is at the head of the faction that would rather control Viole than let him move about freely. He mostly stays behind the scenes ordering around his subordinates to do his bidding, but takes a more direct approach on the Hell Train when he realizes that Viole is becoming more of a threat, and is getting in the way of White's resurrection.

As a result, Karaka fights against Princess Yuri Jahad at Name Hunt Station in an attempt to keep Viole from returning to the Hell Train. He then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death to assist Team Rachel given that White is on their team.

Like Wangnan, Karaka has a red ring with the Jahad symbol on it.


  • Actually a Doombot: He seems to be using a variation of this. With the body he has shown up in so far seemingly being a fake one he can use remotely. While his "heart" is stored in an unknown location elsewhere.
  • A God Am I: His minion calls him god, and Hwaryun mocks this.
  • Arc Villain: Karaka became the main enemy during the last chapters of the Name Hunt Station arc following Kaiser's defeat.
  • Bastard Bastard: He is one of King Jahad's illegitimate children.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: In his first appearance.
  • Casting a Shadow: His element of choice. He calls his ability "World of Darkness", and he is able to outright cancel attacks with it, as well as deliver a very powerful counterattack with the energy he accumulated from the blows he canceled. He displays a great control over it, making him a genuine threat to Yuri.
  • Enemy Mine: As of Season 3 he and Bam are working together because of their shared goal of rescuing their master Ha Jinsung.
  • The Chosen One: As a Slayer.
  • Cool Mask: To hide his identity.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: While he claims to have the same goal as his FUG superiors, he tries to enact schemes under their noses. Unfortunately for him, his superiors are also completely aware of his plans and try to Out Gambit him.
  • The Dreaded: Made himself quite a reputation.
  • The Faceless: His face is hidden behind a mask. No one knows what he truly looks like.
  • Healing Factor: Karaka is able to completely negate any damage inflicted upon him through the use of his Infinite Past Lives technique. He survives Yuri's station-dwarfing shinsu attack in this manner.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: Ha Jinsung and Hwaryun seem to have this opinion of his current self, claiming that he is nothing but a shadow of his former self (in the way he acts rather than power level).
  • Long-Lost Relative: Is heavily implied to be Ja Wangnan's sibling. That jacked-up Healing Factor of his and the yellow-gold glowing eyes add weight to this.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His antagonism towards Viole causes him to leave FUG, though Ha Jinsung has plans to make Viole rejoin.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Scales on his mask add to his overall creepiness.
  • Revenge: While his exact reasons haven't been given, he wants it against his father, King Jahad.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: In his first appearance.
  • Stone Wall: How Kallavan describes his abilities. Even if Karaka is immortal, he also can't inflict any attacks strong enough to actually hurt him.
  • Tsundere: They were originally genuine enemies, but after teaming up with Viole in order to rescue their mutual master, he begins to show shades of this. Taking measures to look after Viole while denying that he is concerned about him.
  • Villainous Rescue: Comes to Bam's aid in the fight against Jahad's army at the end of Season 2.

    "White" 

"White"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/togwhite.jpg

The combined form of five Arie Family siblings (Hoaqin, Vicente, Anna, David, and Albelda) using the forbidden soul-eating spell of a Devil in an attempt to surpass their Great Family Leader father, Arie Hon.

After combining, White would climb the Tower to the point of becoming a Ranker, and makes a name for himself as the 10th seated FUG Slayer. However, White one day suffers defeat against a Jahad Princess, which results in the weakened White running away to the D-rank area's Hell Train in order to regain his strength by acquiring the souls of anyone who tried to venture into the train. White's recovery plan succeeds for awhile, but hits a snag due to a Regular, Roen, sacrificing herself to seal away White within the Hell Train. The sealing spell had also resulted in White finally splitting back into the five siblings, and were placed in separate locations throughout the Hell Train.

In the present, Hoaqin works alongside Team Rachel and Karaka in order to return to his former White form by reabsorbing his four siblings. Hoaqin manages to reabsorb Vicente, Anna, and David, during the Dallar Show to form an incomplete version of White, but is held off from reabsorbing Albelda due to it turning out that the last sibling combined with a newly formed White clone that's an amalgamation of all the souls White had sacrificed over the years. Eventually, the new clone agrees to rejoin with Hoaqin so that they're powerful enough to escape Jahad's forces that were sent to kill them off at the last Hell Train station, which results in a fully reunited White finally making his reappearance.


  • A God Am I: As a FUG Slayer since the organization sees White as one of their Gods.
  • Color Motif: Given his title, being all white is pretty much a given.
  • The Dreaded: Made a name for himself as a dangerous FUG Slayer to the point that even Jinsung was afraid of his possible return after he was sealed away in the Hell Train.
  • Fusion Dance: A body formed by the combination of Hoaqin, Vicente, Anna, David, and Albelda. However, Hoaqin is the only one that remains awake being the one in control of White while the other siblings are forced to forever remain asleep.
  • Light Is Not Good: White-colored, but is established to be a dangerous threat that eats people's souls.
  • Not So Invincible After All: White's defeat at the hands of a Jahad Princess resulted in him losing his strength down to D-rank Regular status.
  • Road Block: His return to power hits a roadblock after Roen's sealing spell splits White apart within the Hell Train.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was sealed away within the Hell Train due to Roen's sealing spell sacrifice.
  • Soul Power: Feeds on souls to strengthen himself.
