Character Description: Atomsk

Atomsk is only generally referred too in the show. He makes only one real appearance at the end of the series. While this is the case, the entire plot of the show revolves around him.

As explained by various characters, Atomsk is a space pirate who is also known as the Pirate King. He is so powerful, he has been reported as to stealing entire solar systems. Some time ago though, he was captured by Medical Mechanica, and is being held by them in an undisclosed location.

Atomsk (FLCL) Haruko's goal through the anime is to find Atomsk, but for the reasons she has... they are not quite clear. She really doesn't say anything more than Medical Mechanica took something from her, and she wants to get it back.

Atomsk's true form is that of an birdlike alien. Amarao simply imagines him to be human-like when he is describing him to Naota. The image to the left is a production design sketch of him from either the Gainax FLCL Groundworks book or the FLCL Design Works book.

Side notes: Atomsk makes his 'first' appearance when Amarao is talking about him, but the 'appearance' is just a still photo of him from the back. He appears to have red hair like flames, large glowing red bands out of his back, and a large muscled frame. When he makes his second appearance, he looks completely different. There is a theory that when Kanchi turns red, he is actually channeling Atomsk's energy.
