Trinity Blood Hugue de Watteau Cosplay

The background to Trinity Blood is set in the distant future, a post-apocalyptic world after the destruction brought about by an Armageddon. The war between humans (Terran) and vampires (Methuselah) continues, as a struggle between two factions: the Vatican and the New Human Empire. Yet, amidst the bloodshed and violence, many desire a peaceful co-existence between the two species. However, standing between them and this goal is the Rosenkreuz Orden, a group of vampire extremists who manipulate the two sides and pit them against each other. To combat them, the Vatican special operations group "AX", led by Cardinal Caterina, must use everything they have - even a vampire who preys on the blood of other vampires.

Hugue de Watteau (Codename: Sword Dancer) is an AX Agent. Hugue can easily match an average vampire in a fight, wielding a blade-staff as his weapon. He has artificial limbs that enhance his speed and strength. Hugue was a son of a noble family before he joined the AX. His entire family was mysteriously murdered and he has been trying to track down the culprit to seek vengeance. He has a sister who escaped the slaughter but she's missing currently, presumably taken away by the murderer. The weapon he uses could be considered a Shikomizue. He is shown to be a very independent person, and often leaves AX on a whim in order to track down vampires.
