Tsukikage's "Awakening" was induced by drugs, but as they were prototype catalysts, that also caused him severe mental problems. Because of this, the ERD prescribed drugs to suppress his anxieties. However, thanks to the continuous mutation of his body, he soon developed a tolerance to drugs and his mind and body may collapse at any time. Having escaped from his holding cell, now he enters to the tournament looking to take revenge against Ell Blue and his organization.

Aside from having the obvious "gothic J-Rock" vibe going on... Tsukikage is definitely reminiscent of Freeman from Garou: Mark of the Wolves. And we're not only talking looks, but definitely some of his attacks as well. Tsukikage likes to use his girly nails and violently scratch his opponents, just like Freeman. Overall, he's got some really cool animations and a defined in-game persona. 

While some might be quick to call him a "knock-off" and move along, as a Garou fan, I think it's pretty interesting that a "Freeman-inspired" character even exists. Although it defines him... his teal default color scheme is a bit stange. I think he'd look a lot cooler dressed in all black... like a proper goth. ;) On a side note: His alternate attire is a bit more "original" and also pretty cool.
