Name: Bruke Gallstone
Weight: 309 lbs.
Profile: 7 years ago, Bruke used to be ranked 2nd in the heavyweight boxing division, and had just proposed to the love of his life, Danielle. But in a series of events, Bruke made a pact with the Grim Reaper to save his dying love, only to be seconds late. In the past 7 years, he's been looking for people strong enough to kill him, since the curse doesn't let him commit suicide and has somehow granted him additional lives as well as immortality. He has "died" 8 times so far and each subsequent death only makes his body more grotesque and harder to kill and it has gotten to the point that no one seems capable of killing him. That is, until the Nightmare Tournament. He hopes that this will be the last time he dies.
Personality: As of present, Bruke is a mellow, depressed fellow who occasionally grieves for Danielle and regrets his mistakes. And being responsible for a lot of people's deaths, he's gotten to appreciate life a little more than most killers would consider, but he still yearns for his own death in turn.
He's also considerably jaded and sometimes apathetic, not seemingly excited over anything else other than the possibility of him dying.
Otherwise, he's okay to be around with, even if he doesn't talk much and a little freaky-looking. He's especially concerned when it comes to innocent people (the ones who would never kill anyone for fun or profit.)
Strengths: He has a resilient body and will not die easily from a variety of attacks. His curse allows him to revert his body back to its original, uninjured form while unwillingly inflicting the same amount and kind of damage he received to the person who originally inflicted said damage.
Bruke doesn't physically do this, but rather the transferral of damage appears in the form of shadowy, ephemeral streams shooting out of his wounds and striking his opponent - this is unavoidable and unblockable.
Weaknesses: Bruke is oddly more vulnerable to melee attacks than anything else. Also, the transferal of damage doesn't occur immediately - it has a period of 30 minutes, starting from the first injury Bruke receives. This is to accumulate any damage done to him and dish it back with greater efficiency. If his body is "destroyed" before 30 minutes are up, the curse is dispelled and Bruke dies, leaving his opponent unscathed.
On a sidenote, Bruke will not fight anyone he believes isn't strong enough to kill him and will try to avoid fights if possible. To anyone else, he will relay his weaknesses to give them a fighting chance and tell them how much time they have left to kill him. He'll also stay still or at least adopt a position where he'll get hurt the most.
On another sidenote, due to his apathy, he is rarely curious and thus doesn't have much knowledge about most things. He could be easily controlled or manipulated if swayed enough, though it doesn't make it any easier to kill him or to get him to kill someone actively.
