Introduction

Mark Twain (マーク・トウェイン, Māku Tōein?) is a former member of the Guild, and his ability is Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer.

Appearance

Twain has dark orange hair which is swept outwards and green eyes. He wears a long white sleeve shirt with buttons that are always undone and black pants with the suspenders down. He wears black sandals and black bracelets around his ankles. On his left wrist are two brown bands.

Personality

Twain is generally a jovial and cheerful individual, in contrast with most of his fellow Guild members. As such, he would usually suggest that they go on excursions to spend some leisure time when given a chance altogether,[2] but they would simply reject his idea in the process. Nonetheless, he is quite close with them until the organization's eventual dissolution, considering the Guild to be a rather nice place.[3]

As one of the Guild's snipers, he takes considerable pride in his marksmanship and ability, wherein he keeps a personal record of his endeavors that utilize such skills in his "success diary". Twain would also frequently dote on his doll-like companions Huck and Tom for their skillful marksmanship.

Despite this lighthearted attitude, Twain can become serious at times during combat, especially when dealing with an opponent who challenges his sniping skills like Atsushi Nakajima, whom Twain has admitted to be the strongest adversary in his success diary.[4] In spite of his confidence in his own skills, it is not impossible for Twain to acknowledge his opponent's expertise. Hence, he easily and amicably accepts defeat when he is apparently bested by such adversary.

Ability

Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer (ハック・フィン&トム・ソーヤ, Hakku Fin & Tomu Sōya?) is an ability that takes the forms of the doll-like creatures known as Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer.

With his ability, Twain can shoot with absolute accuracy by attaching either Huck or Tom to one of his bullets. Since Huck's and Tom's minds are also linked, he can perform long-distance surveillance using them.

Background

Little is known about Twain, and his life before his membership in the Guild nor his reasons for joining it are not specified. However, it is quite possible that he has worked on his success diary for quite some time, most likely having started it back in his hometown.[2]

Plot

The Guild Arc

Twain first shows up along with Lovecraft, Steinbeck, Hawthorne, Mitchell, and Melville during the fight of Kōyō with Atsushi and Kyōka.[5]

Twain then appears as the sniper shooter who shoots Atsushi and Kyōka in order for Fitzgerald to kidnap Atsushi. [6]

After Atsushi escapes in the Moby Dick, he prevents him from landing to Yokohama using his ability. However, Atsushi manages to dodge it.[4]

After evacuating the Moby Dick, he is seen escorting a captured Lucy out of a helicopter. He is then shown along with Steinbeck, Lucy, and Alcott driving away in a car.[2]

After the Guild war, he and the other Guild members were discussing the fate of the Guild. Twain decides to return home in order to finish his own autobiography.[3]
