Longinus Spriggan is the third child of Longinus Niu, and a member of the Dressrosa royal family. His father in an unnamed gladiator from the arenas like many of his siblings,. Raised from birth as a stalwart fighter, he is a former champion of the Gladiator rings, and is the current General of the Dressrosan military, second to only the King and Queen themselves.
The blonde out of the group, Spriggan Longinus, third living son of the Queen Niu strikes an imposing figure. While not the tallest of his siblings, he's arguably one of the most intimidating, with many noticing the cold glare in his eyes when they spend more than a few minutes alone with him. The square in his shoulder and icy stare in his eyes gives him an aura of an abnormally dangerous man.
Spriggan has a compact frame, lithe and powerful from his years of physical training. Standing at 5'11, his height is not particularly notable compared to his siblings, though his muscle mass and sculpting is easily among the best of them. Spriggan has the fat content of a world class athlete. He has broad shoulders and thick arms, only accentuating his physique.
Spriggan's body is covered in small scars here and there, tokens from his lifetime of combat. Out of these there stands two that look like they could have been truly life threatening, one of which runs from his right shoulder to his left hip, and the other a stab wound through the right side of his chest. Tokens from the only two times he has been taken down.
Spriggan can normally be seen sporting his military uniform, only taking it off when he thinks he will actually have to try in a fight. It is an olive green uniform with a matching hat. It is filled with the decorations as required by his station as the general of the army, and not much more as he was never one for unwarranted awards. Underneath he wears a pair of simple olive green pants and a gray t-shirt, preferring the simpleness of the outfit for his style of combat. He is usually seen sporting a pair of black gloves with metal plates over the knuckles.
Out of all of his siblings, Spriggan is the one that most would qualify as legitimately malicious. Where as most of his siblings were horrified by the actions of their mother during the Day of Red, an event that was immortalized into their brains by the sheer brutality of the display, Spriggan watched with glee. He saw the power that his mother had obtained, and unlike the others who watched in horror, he desired it. He desired the kind of power that could bring others to their knees. He desired the power that would cause anyone he considered an enemy to flee before him. His efforts at gaining strength stem from this incident.
Spriggan at his core is a wild man, displaying his emotions on his sleeve for the world to see, a man with nothing to hide. He is not a fan of deceit, of manipulation, even if he is a product of it. Like all of his brothers he was manipulated, used to be a warrior of the highest caliber. In the end though, he can appreciate it as it made him what he is today.
He enjoys the finer things in life his position allows him to have.
