DBZ: Heritage Character Profiles - Piccolo


As many of you know, a live action DBZ film has been a goal and dream of mine for a very long time. I've worked hard to learn film techniques and how to craft screenplays and now I can finally start the pre-pre-production process on the film I've wanted to make for 15 years. Special effects, good angles and proper dialogue are all important aspects of any good film, but without quality characters, it all falls apart, so here's the first of many character profiles (complete with some concept art)!
Piccolo is a loner. He always has been and he always will be. He meditates and dwells on the one defeat he ever suffered at the hands of a puny human named Goku. Piccolo once wanted to conquer the earth, but his goal now is simply to kill Goku in a battle to the death. Nothing else matters to him. It has consumed him for half a decade.

When a mysterious soldier in black armor appears before Piccolo, it sets him on a new mission - kill this man before he kills Goku. No one must steal the joy of slaying Goku from him. Piccolo must now join forces with Goku to destroy this new threat so that his destiny of defeating Goku can be seen.

But when Goku is killed in the battle and Piccolo is left with knowledge that two more soldiers even stronger than the last will arrive on earth in just one year, he must train to become stronger than he has ever been to defend the world he now calls home. No king is worth his crown if he has no domain.

Along the way, he becomes friends with Goku's son, Gohan and it is through this friendship that Piccolo learns what it means to be a hero.

See the whole story unfold in DBZ: Heritage, coming soon from Red7 Entertainment!
