His father was a really famous pirate, meanwhile her mother was part of the Marines. Yup, it was a really a strange family but they where happy with their life. Gabishi’s father was one of the most remarkable swordsman of the sea, since he used to have a really good speed, almost like a lighting. Gabishi’s father decided to teach Gabishi, Fitto, Cassandra to use swords from a really early age, even thought their mother wasn’t sure about it. Gabishi past a lot of training and test to understand a lot about swords, increase his speed and strength, and finally to learn to survive against stronger enemies. After some years Gabishi’s mother was re-called by the Marines to help them, and she decided to go, leaving her family in the village. Time pass since his mother was on duty and Gabishi become a really good swordsman, but still not the best. His father decided that was time to give him the family most precious weapon, the Nightfall, making Fitto jealous of Gabishi and angry at his father. At first it was really hard to use the Nightfall but after some years of training,Gabishi master it.

    One day the Marines show upon the village, Gabishi was happy since he can’t wait for his mother to come back, but eventually that day become Gabishi nightmare. Her mother become a captain of a Marines ship and come back to the island not to see her family but to capture a pirate, no other than his own husband. Gabishi can’t believe about it and decided to protect his father, he haven raised his sword upon his own mother and swear that he will kill her if she was going to capture his father. Eventually Fitto was taking his mother side and decided to fight against his own little brother. That was the fight that Gabishi got his scar in the chest. Gabishi’s father decided to flee with Gabishi into a cave to hide. Inside the cave a Gabishi’s grandpa helped them with their injuries but nothing can do for Gabishi’s chest and he losing so much blood. Hearing that Gabishi’s father decided to give him, his own blood to Gabishi. Gabishi can’t believe about it and decided to help his father and grandfather to escape from the island. The three of them decided to create a raft too get out from the island,but upon the time of the escape, Gabishi’s father got caught. Gabishi suddenly ran to help him but he was to late, his own father got executed right in from of his eyes, by his own mother. He once again fight against his older brother, Fitto and took his left eye out.His grandfather come to the scene and helped Gabishi and forced him to leave. Gabishi decided to escape from the island, he can’t stop crying about what happened to his father.

    Top to bottom as i read trough.
    Firstly, the time/grammar seems pretty coherently wrong. "give" instead of "gave", "have" instead of "has", and similiars.

    "becomes extremely aggressive and loud once he grabs his sword, or any sword"
    I feel like that's either a really terrible psychosis or oddly worded. That's normally not how it works - if anything you probably will want to put it somewhere towards something along the lines of "if he's agitated enough to take up his sword, shit's bad" or something. In any case that whole "angry super rage" thing wants to be rephrased into a more favorable shape.

    Appearance and behaviour - Interests and Hobbies
    Both of which seem a bit short, compose another paragraph for each, please, so that they are about equal with Personality - if you have trouble coming up with things, try to go into more detail why he does like certain things or act in certain ways on certain situations etc. You have lots of things in your preferences and dislikes that you could also explain in detail if you got the muse to write a lot.

    "His father was a really famous pirate, meanwhile her mother was part of the Marines."
    With a lead-in like that, you should explain a little, how this came to happen, really. There would be problems and ramifications by the marines if that were to be known, for example.

    Generally, you might want to flesh out the history a little. Some things are a bit vague and some are rightout hard to believe or understand. And the general grammar/spelling problem adds it's own. It might sound like a lot but you'll be more pleased with it yourself, in the long run.

    Don't use spoiler for your image, please. It doesn't even seem to work in this instance. Just put the image directly.

    Lastly, use the correct coding templates for the techniques and skills. Also, get your style with it's techniques posted in the Creation Forum for approval.
