— The Hooks Killer
The Hooks Killer is a very prominent figure in The Reality Branch. While historians believe him to be a copy cat of the original King Orok, there are many that believe him to be a possessive entity or a timeless creature, moving between the timelines and eras of .Reality. This is backed up throughout time, and even acknowledged by the millennial form of the Hooks Killer, Adam Spirit. (Among other things, Hooks states that he was Barnabelt Kinnard, a member of The Fearful Four). Hooks has made his role very prominent throughout the 1970's up until his disappearance in 2014, and reappearance as Adrian Tamil in 2015. Many of the conspiracy theorists looking into him call this the Incarnation cycle.
Detectives on the various cases have determined him to be a master of disguise. The Hooks Killer is responsible for countless murders, spanning close to 40 years in time. Many of these murders are gruesome, and so horrifying most are kept away from the public eye, while very few are shown in the Case Logs. As a follow up to the disappearance, it has been noted that the Cult of Coolificus Coolage has been known to somewhat worship this creature as one of the Dekn lords.
Affiliation with the Arkn
During the May 15, 2015 incident, it is revealed that Hooks possesses some kind of otherworldly power and knowledge. This is demonstrated when he performs a magick ritual, which raises the Carver into the body of Luke Anton. It is strongly hinted that Adrian possessed some part of the Carver in him and was able to transfer it seamlessly. How he did this, however, is unknown.
Hooks appeared in second tournament of the Fanmade Seven Trials of Habit as Adam Antium Spirit. His goals were to help HABIT keep the rabbits in check by viciously murdering a defector, and others during calls. One of his most notable appearances in the calls involved an argument with Doctor Corenthal over the usefulness and stupidity of the rabbits, which soon turned personal when the Doctor briefly revealed the two were previously toe to toe at one point in the incarnation cycle. In addition, Hooks became inHABITED only once, and the amount of evil and pure power surging in his body was too much, causing his eyes to bleed and HABIT to promptly leave his vessel saying, "THIS BODY IS FUCKING DISGUSTING, AND CRAMPED AS ALL FUCK."
