"I'm the game maker. I derive the best strategy by considering every possibility. Everything is going as planned."
―Blood Stalk's speech to Night Rogue[src]

Blood Stalk (ブラッドスターク Buraddo Sutāku), is one of the main villains in Kamen Rider Build.

History

Blood Stalk first made contact with Sento shortly after Sento defeated Masahiro Nabeshima as the Mirage Smash by stabbing him in the back with a mysterious tentacle, leaving him stunned. Stalk then used a giant projection of a cobra to retrieve the incapacitated Nabeshima. Gentoku Himuro seems to be aware of Blood Stalk's activity. Borderline of Justice

Personality

"Why didn't you finish him off... Stalk?"
"I'm the game maker. I derive the best strategy by considering every possibility. Everything is going as planned.
"
―Blood Stalk to Night Rogue[src]

While little is known about him, Blood Stalk is a self-proclaimed strategist. He also seems to have a lot more of an unperturbed attitude compared to the more focused Night Rogue, nonchalantly fooling around even when doing his job as a Faust enforcer. Such is seen when instead of directly engaging Build, he was casually laying back and let Square Smash do most of the fighting, until it's the right time for him to interfere by making the Smash grow. He also dislike taking orders from everyone, prefer to do his thing in his way.

Somehow, Blood Stalk also viewed his battle with both Build and Banjou as an experiment to measure their hazard level. He's visibly entertained when both of them had a rise in their hazard levels and gives them hints in return. He doesn't even bother to oppose Night Rogue temporarily to let them escape.

Stalk can be cruel and ruthless if he wanted to, making him not much different from Night Rogue in regards to their aggression. He is more than willing to commit more heinous acts, such as killing several Touto guards using his poison, and changing Eita Kawai's face into that of Shingo Kuwata to preserve his identity. Like Night Rogue, he views science and the Rider System as instruments for war.

Powers and Abilities

  • Activation Command: As Guardians are in fact sleeper agents of Faust, Stalk can snap his fingers to activate their true programming into serving him.
  • Identity Manipulation: Using a cloud of steam from his hand, he can make anyone's face look like anyone else's; the process seems painful, and its degree of permanence isn't yet known.
