Travis Touchdown begins his climb to the UAA's first rank with an assault on the Townsend Residence, where he slices through numerous guards and pillages through extravagant hallways and terraces in search of his ranked target. In a great hall, UAA agent Sylvia Christel calls Touchdown's cellphone, encouraging him that Death Metal "only looks tough because his mother was an ugly bitch," and beckoning him to bring her Death Metal's head. Shortly afterward, he finds his foe lounging in a beach chair outside his home. Touchdown admits his envy for Death Metal's lavish lifestyle, however Death Metal retorts that his home is a place of death rather than paradise. The two assassins face off against each other, comes to an end when Touchdown slices off Death Metal's hands and catapults his weapon into the ceiling. As Death Metal bleeds out, he passes on the title of "Holy Sword" to Touchdown, and advising him to "master the ways of the assassin." Touchdown then decapitates Death Metal, complying with Christel's demand for his head, and his body drops limply to the ground. Sylvia arrives to congratulate Touchdown, taking pictures of Death Metal's corpse as Talbot and Weller incinerate it.
Appearance And PersonalityEdit
The 55-year-old Death Metal has red spiked hair, many piercings and a body largely decorated in tattoos. His name may reflect his appearance, as his piercings, tattoos and hair are common elements seen in metal musicians. Death Metal seems content with his life, stating, "I am free of desire. So long as I have this scenery to look upon, I need nothing more." He is the only assassin to acknowledge the fleets of hopeful assassins who are slain as they attempt to enter the ranks of the UAA.
Powers And AbilitiesEdit
Death Metal brandishes the Orange II, a large curved beam katana that greatly contrasts Touchdown's own. He also practices the art of bunshin, an ability he uses to create two duplicates of himself in order to fight as a group. The true Death Metal can be identified as the one whose weapon glows.
