Powers/Abilities: Vain can generate a sort of light saber with his bare hands. Good swordsman.

History: Vain led the group of super powered agents sent by Mr.Tanaka to retrieve Watch members Adapt and the Fisher while the two men were in New York. He observed through binoculars as Entropist shot both men through the head, then sent Zero in to check their status. Both targets survived due to their individual powers. Zero stunned Adapt, but was in turn killed by the Fisher. Vain then moved in and dueled with the Fisher, aided by Entropist's powers. The Fisher was by far the better swordsman, but just before he could deliver a fatal blow to Vain, Entropist caused his sword to break. Vain then ran him through. The two surviving Tanaka agents waited for the retrieval helicopters, but the Fisher regenerated his wound unnoticed by either man. He stood up behind Vain a cracked him across the head with the flat of what was left of his sword, then murdered Entropist. While he was doing this last, Vain took the chance to flee, climbing up a ladder into a newly arrived helicopter.
