Techniques

Assault (アサルト, Asaruto) is a former member of the Butchers and member of the White Clad. His infamous reputation for his astonishing power and ruthless assassinations grants him much respect and many titles within the organisation.

Appearance

Assault has dark skin and light spiky hair, three piercing in each of his ears, and two piercings in-place of his absent eyebrows. Being a White Hood, he wears a variation of his organization's uniform, which consists of white clothing and the cross of the Sol God symbol across his chest.

Personality

Assault comes off as a stoic professional, proud of his abilities as a killer and dedication to the White Clad's mission. He notes that murdering women and children displeases him but his mercy only extends enough to grant them quick deaths, while wishing they will not think ill of him. However, despite his taciturn demeanor, he's exceptionally shy and awkward around nubile young women and often reacts flustered to seeing women scantily clad. To that end, he shows great determination in trying to overcome his shyness to not be defeated in battle with little success. His near endless training shows him to be both overconfident in his process while also capable of self-reflection as he examines his own shortcomings in order to find ways to improve. Eventually concluding that's own feelings for the target will determine his ability to make the kill.

Abilities

Assault using Crimson Bullet.

Assault is a Third Generation, giving him the ability to ignite his own flames. Using his Ignition Ability Crimson Bullet, Assault can create multiple missiles from around his limbs made of condensed fire and launch them. Once the missiles explode, they can launch a nearby person into the air and cause massive damage. Within his organization, he is a massacre expert, who specializes in annihilation.[2] With his skills, he's strong enough to kill a Demon Infernal alone,[3] and thought to be capable of annihilating the Special Fire Force Company 8 single-handedly.[4] With only a finger, Assault could block Arrow's destructive Ignition Ability with ease.[5]

Background

At some point Assault was an elite faction of the White Clad specialised in assassination known as the Butchers. In his time within the group would have him prove himself as powerful enough to defeat Demon Infernals singlehandedly, although these feats would never impress the group's founder. Assault would eventually leave to join the Knights of the Ashen Flame under the Third Pillar.

Plot

Netherworld arc

Assault facing Tamaki.

Upon having a busy day, Assault approaches Iris and Tamaki Kotatsu in the Netherworld after they become separated from the other members of Company 8, and tells them he is going to kill the pair. Soon after, he begins to fight Tamaki, cornering her with his Ignition Ability. As Tamaki prepares to fight seriously, Assault launches a missile at her, blasting her into the air, leading to Tamaki's bra falling off and as a result distracting Assault. Falling from mid-air, Tamaki lands atop of Assault seductively, impairing his capability to fight. Before he can react, Iris utilizes the chance to pummel Assault with a metal pole. As Tamaki joins in the attack, the girls defeat him.

Young man, Assault

Assault training to fight Tamaki.

To defeat Company 8, Assault had been training day and night endlessly to deal with Tamaki's Lucky Lewd Lure. Over the course of his training, Assault examined porn. Tamaki met Assault in the 2nd District's old wasteland after a challenge request was delivered to Special Fire Cathedral 8. Assault is defeated by her clumsiness again. Realising that viewing women on film is very different form confronting them in person, Assault training again by conversing with Saki too bulld his confidence. During the next rematch he is overcome again by Tamaki's charm as her bashfulness and embarrassment is different from the flirtation of a professional. Following his third defeat, Assualt waits for strong winds in Tokyo, during which he completes his training to prevent being overcome moments of innocent embarrassment by watching a breeze lifting up the dress of a young woman and exposing her panties in a moment of innocent embarrassment. He confronts Tamaki again and silently acknowledges his he cannot defeat this girl. Claiming that none his training prepared him for fighting the woman he loves.

Cataclysm arc

Months later Assault would re-emerge during the Second Great Cataclysm in a new uniform. He arrives in time to prevent a doppelgänger using his form from killing Tamaki during its battle with Company 8. The doppelgänger expresses its hatred for Assault, believing that his worldly desires and failure to defeat a single girl has destroyed the Bloody Fire Blast's reputation. Concluding that it deserves to be seen as the true Assault for rejecting base desire and butchering all who oppose him. Assault interjects that desire is needed in this world and that he has accepted it. He is distracted by Tamaki's exposed skin through her torn clothing and left open to an attack by the doppelgänger; who tells Assault that his lust is driving his views instead of truth.
