Deek Slasky is a minor villain from the manga Black Cat and one of the Apostles of the Star. He appears during the battle of Clarken Island, before being defeated by Sven Vollfield, one of the three main protagonists.

Personality

Deek is a young man of twenty-one years, who got a life-sentence for murdering four girls "who suited his tastes", keeping them in a freezer. This makes a gloomy example of the psychotic, sadistic, perverted freak he is.

He hates women yet wants to "possess" them in the creepiest possible way, he revels in his victims' suffering, and he is enormously proud of his power, smugly boasting without end. While he is indeed pretty tactical and he can adapt very well to his enemies, he hardly bothers understanding their fighting style, and his overconfidence proves his undoing.

Deek appears at first glance to be poised, collected, condescending and taunting. He affects a laid-back, casual and falsely friendly demeanour, but this self-important facade only lasts as long as he is in control, shattering whenever he loses the upper-hand. To the very core, Deek is a vicious, short-tempered, pretentious, immature, and despicable madman, lashing out at any opposition he cannot cower.

The more his target resists, the more it infuriates him, quickly becoming unhinged and erratic, ranting hatefully and keeping attacking over and over, throwing caution flying out of the window. Even though he remains strategic and still correctly calculates his timing when blinded by rage, he makes the mistake of focusing solely on his target.

Powers and Abilities

Like every other Apostle of the Star, Deek is a highly talented and powerful warrior, fast and spry enough to dodge bullets, who perfectly masters his power of Tao. His power, Freeze, enables him to create ice from the moisture in the air and to control it at will.

He is able to cool down the atmosphere around him and he mostly attacks by hurling spear-shaped Ice Blades at variable speed. He can make dozens of them appear everywhere in an undetermined radius, making it even more dangerous, and his Shooting Star attack hurls a very fast barrage of them.

He also attacks with blocks of ice of variable size which he makes fall on his targets, huge pillars of ice erupting from the ground, and waves of ice running along the ground to freeze his enemies' feet and trap them.

His most dangerous technique is called Freezing Statue: He grabs his enemies and creates ice that expands over their body little by little, until it covers them entirely and freezes them to death. Given that Deek creates ice through his power of Tao, it instantly vanishes when he gets knocked out, though the wounds and frostbites it caused remain.

Deek is arguably one of the most dangerous Apostles, since he almost always ensures that his attacks cannot be dodged, trapping his enemies before striking or launching barrages from every side at once.

Even worse, he devised a near-perfect defence called the Ice Armour: When activated, it automatically protects him from all minor attack, should it be bullets (even that of a machine gun), blows or blades, intercepting it with a concentration of ice on his body right before he gets hit, on which the attack bounces harmlessly without even tickling him.

As for powerful attacks such as grenades, he makes pillars of ice erupt from the ground to intercept it. Yet, contrary to the Ice Armour this Guard Pillar technique is not activated automatically.

Role in the Story

A close-up on Deek's face.

Deek is introduced when the Sweepers League (a group of powerful bounty hunters which includes the three main protagonists Train Heartnet, Sven Vollfield and Eve) invades Clarken Island, the Apostles of the Star's hideout.

Shiki dispatches the Apostles all around the island to get rid of them, and orders Deek to kill Sven. Deek is first seen attacking the female sweeper Selphie Dearcroft, who is powerless before him, until she is saved by Sven.

Deek is pleased to see his target confronting him on his own and Sven engages him. However, Selphie refuses to give up and attacks Deek with a dagger, only to suffer his Freezing Statue technique, which threatens to kill her within five minutes.

Knowing that Sven can see the future with his Vision Eye power, Deek surrounds him with seemingly unavoidable Ice Blades from every side, but unbeknownst to him, Sven's power evolved after an arduous training to become a Grasper Eye. This new power enables Sven to control the speed of anything he sees, using it to slow down the Ice Blades and avoid them all.

Sven surrounded with Ice Blades.

Sven attacks the psychotic Apostle with several weapons but he cannot bypass his defence. Deek then traps Sven's feet in ice to immobilize him and launches another attack but not to avail; and Sven knocks him out with an electrified wire, making the ice that paralyzes him and threatens Selphie's life disappear.

Deek wakes up shortly after, infuriated. He creates an immense block of ice over both sweepers to crush them, and he would have succeeded had he known more about Sven's power.

Now mad with fury, Deek lashes out insults and prepares another attack, but in his rage, he forgot both to reactivate his Ice Armour and to take Selphie into account, and she finishes him off with a hammer-kick to the head.

Deek's fate at the end of the series remains unknown, though it is likely that the Chrono Numbers tailing the Sweepers League took him into custody or, given some Numbers' mindset, finished him off.
