Akryung (악령, Ahkryeong; "Akryung"; likely 惡靈, meaning "Evil Spirit") is one of Headon's underlings who was assigned to help Rachel to get through the Tower. It is unknown what status he maintains in the Tower.
Appearance and Personality
Akryung is an extremely intimidating, imposing entity and, while his true height is unknown, he is roughly twice as tall as Rak Wraithraiser. Akryung wears garments reminiscent of feudal Asiatic warlord clothing.
He is completely silent, never speaking except for making a few cryptic chuckling noises.
Because of their unprecedented and shocking early appearance on the Floor, they were made to take part in the Crown Game, which was held in another test centre. In the Crown Game, Akryung did nothing to either benefit or hinder Baam's team, merely standing beside Rachel.
For the Position Test he was assigned to the Spear Bearer position, and passed early by hitting an extremely distant target on his first try. During the final test of the Floor of Test, Akryung did nothing, with Koon leaving him to his own devices.
Akryung appeared with Rachel's team on the 52nd Floor accompanying the Elder's Envoy. While Baam was meditating, Akryung attacked him from the back with Baam saying it is the strongest Shinsoo he has ever seen from a C-Rank regular but Baam avoided it.
After a short fight, Baam is able to overwhelm Akryung and got him on his knees. Akryung then says Baam has gottem much stronger but will have to be even stronger to be able to defeat Zahard.
Powers and Abilities
While Akryung has never been seen in combat, according to Androssi, he is very strong. This is proven by the fact that he was able to slaughter multitudes of Regulars in the "Deathmatch" Test and was also able to hit an extremely far target with his spear on the first try. During the aforementioned test, he was shown holding a bloodied cleaver, indicating he probably uses it in combat.
His attacks when fighting Baam in season 3 are the strongest shinshu of any C-Rank Regular that Baam has ever seen and he uses Shinwonryu-fused attack/shinshu black hole sphere.
