First of all these information are directly taken from the authors blog he often reveals information about Tower of God there. So you better keep your eyes open for new information there too. :D

Well all know that Irregulars are strong as hell but not all of them are Irregulars that made it to the very top. The high-Rankers in Tower of God are often associated with there sobriquets due to their specific fighting style. A fisherman gets the name of the fish, whereas the guide gets it from the ship, and Wave controllers gets their name either from the wind or the wave itself. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything about Lightbearers and Scouts. :(

Anyway, this way we continue to discuss about them and compare how many of them have the same position. I'll keep updating as the information are available. I'll also post the second part later, when I've found sufficient sources for the Rankers until then keep discussing about the ones available so far. :p

Here are the first seven high Rankers in order.

High-Rankers

Phantaminum
Sobriquet: Riddle
Age: Unknown
Height: Unknown
Birthplace: Unknown
Position: Unknown
Rank: 1

Currently in the 1st rank of the Tower.

Phantaminum appeared suddenly in the Tower and broke into the Zahard's inner palace, killing a lot of royals and courtiers. He succeeded in breaking all of the lines of defense and face Zahard but disappeared even without a fight.
That's how he had gotten the sobriquet. There's another reason for this sobriquet, and this is because of his style of combat. It is said that he had a freewheeling and desultory combat style, and had used a weapon that was never seen anywhere inside the Tower. Most of the eye witnesses died or lost their minds with fear so the stories were not accurately reported.

The negative views toward the irregulars have grown because of him and it had a big impact on Urek when he climbed the Tower. When Phantaminum broke into the palace, it is said he met Yuri Zahard in the inner palace, and there is a great diversity of opinion as to why he didn't kill her. Yuri Zahard didn't say anything about the matter except that 'He was a messy one.'

There were a lot of objections in the Rank Admistering Office as to giving Phantaminum the 1st rank, who have disappeared after the attack of the palace of Zahard and became inactive. But everyone agreed his impressive strength alone was overwhleming. As a result, Phantaminum became the No. 1 Ranker by only one combat, dragging the 'Red Tower' Enryu down to 2nd rank.

He was seen very little in the Tower after the attack of the palace, and most of the stories are rumors, therefore it's hard to confirm any of the stories. There's a rumor that he is in a cat-and-dog terms with another irregular, Urek Mazino, but it is not confirmed, either. All in all, Phantaminum is a monster whose information starts with a riddle and ends with a riddle. Every Rankers are on the watch for the moves of this monster.

Enryu
Sobriquet: Red Tower
Age: Unknown
Height: 184cm
Birthplace: Unknown
Position: Spearmaster Throwing type
Rank: 2

Enryu's identity is as mysterious as Phantaminum. His strangest record is that 'he had murdered the Guardian'. By killing the Gardian of the Tower, who was thought to be immortal, he let the people know that the Gardians were not absolute beings. That's how Enryu became the No. 1 Ranker with the nickname of 'Guardian Muderer'. He maintained his rank for a long time but lost it from Phantaminum.

The funny thing is that Enryu and Phantaminum never had a combat. They have never even met, and there are a lot of opinions on who would win if they actually fought each other.

His Sobriquet, Red Tower was added because Shinsoo of the Tower turned red whenever he appeared, but the reason for this is not known.

Enryu is known to fight with the way of creating thousands of spears made with Shinsoo and striking them downwards. Some people use a poetic expression, describing it 'Red Rain', but it wouldn't look beautiful from the victim's point of view. Enryu's overwhelming control against the Shinsoo is rated a cut above the Guardians, and it is the 'heretical' ability, breaking the laws of the Tower.

It is not known where Enryu is or what he's doing currently, and it is rumored that Headon is seeking him with avidity.


Zahard
Sobriquet: King of Tower
Age: Unknown
Height: 240cm
Birthplac: Unknown
Position: Fisherman
Rank: 3

'King of Tower' Zahard is the most famous and great being in the whole Tower. In the ancient times, when there was no civilization in the Tower, he came into the Tower and built his own empire. Zahard is the great king and the true warrior. Everyone living in the Tower is the son or daughter of Zahard. He is like the god to the habitants of the Tower.

Zahard conquerred the Tower with the 10 families, and gotten the control of the 134 floors from the floor Guardians. (Some floors were conquered by Zahard's daughters.)

He rules over people as the ruler of the tower but is not on the move outside. But the 3rd rank seems poor when reflecting his influence and the splendor of the past. (He was firmly the No. 1 Ranker before Phantaminum and Enryu appeared.)
People who have seen Zahard in combat are very rare, but he is known to have outstanding power, because 'White Sword' Arie Hon, who was even with Urek Mazino had recollected 'I have fought Zahard ten times and always defeated, thereby I became his servant.' Zahard's daughters, who are invested his powers all categorized as the 'Ultimate species'.

Zahard is currently resting, leaving the outside activities to his daughters, but a lot of people are expecting the day Zahard is on the move would be the day when the limit to the Tower becomes another floor up.

Of course, more and more people are anticipating for the Zahard's 'only son' who is to be born someday.

Urek Mazino
Sobriquet: Ray-Barakuda
Age: Unknown
Height: 195cm
Birthplace: Unknown
Position: Fisherman
Rank: 4

Currently the strongest Ranker on the move. He is an Irregular, and the most recent to be in the tower of the top 5.
His sobriquet, Barakuda is the name of the most aggressive and ferocious white steel eel in the Tower. (Ray is the sobriquet from his combat style, which is forwarding the Shinsoo as fast as light. Although his formal sobriquet is Ray Barakuda, just Barakuda can be referred to Urek Mazino in the Tower.)

It took 50 years for him to pass every test and climb the top of the tower, and he is recorded as the fastest person to climb the inner tower in a normal way.

Although his main position is Fisherman, he is proficient in most every position and very aggressive in all of them. He is proficient in flying Shinsoo fast, and the power is impossible to block even with the superior armor inventory. People who have seen Urek Mazino in combat had evaluated his combat style was 'Agrressive, feroucious and fast. But tremendously beautiful.'

Urek Marizo, while standing on his fianl position, had once knocked down a Light Bearer who was also on his final position. Figuratively speeking, it's similar to a goalkeeper scoring a goal.

His relationship is somewhat dull, and it's because of his masculine manner. He has magnanimous personality, but is very unpopular among women because of this. It is rumored that he has a crush on one of Zahard's princess, Garam Zahard, but Garam Zahard herself hates Urek Mazino. Of course, this is not actually confirmed.

He is also acquainted with another princess, Yuri, and it is because he was one of the person to plant 'Walhaiksong'. Yuri evaluated as "He's the best to fight together, but the worst to live with."

On the other hand, he has great support from men. 'White Sword' Arie Hon praised him as the true worrior after he fought him, and his best friend, Backryun said he was the number one comrade and man. 'Blue Advancer' Koon Eduan picked Urek as 'One of the person I wish to battle.' Of the three, Backryun, who is one of the first memeber to plant 'Walhaiksong' has a special relationship with Urek, and the two's influence inside the Tower is already even with one of the 10 Families.

The relationship bewtween Phantaminum and Urek is a very talkative issue, but it seems to be a fact that Urek tracked Phantaminum and followed him inside the Tower, although nothing was reported clearly.

As the strongest of the current active Rankers, and as one of the founder of the Wing Tree, or Walhaiksong, Urek Mazino is one of the most influential person inside the tower. And it is not too much to say his every single move is related to the future of the Tower.

Arie Hon
Sobriquet: White Sword, White Oar
Age: Unknown
Height: 187cm
Position: Fisherman
Rank: 5

One of the ten warriors who have pioneered the Tower. Current head of the Arie Family. Owner of the White Oar, the only sword made by Mecseth. The name of the sword is from Oarfish, a legendary white steel eel.

Outstanding swordsman, who has no problem with his mysterious swordsmanship even in high dense of Shinsoo. He fought Urek Mazino evenly, but after the combat, he is known to have said 'Urek Mazino is much better.'

He is known to be very temperate and elegant normally. He is well mannered even in a fight, but has never fought anyone after fighting Urek.

He is the owner of the White Oar, the only sword made by Mecseth. White Oar is known as the only S+ grade weapon inside the Tower. Warriors in the Tower say the well-edged weapon is 'like an oarfish' because of this. Mecseth had never produced a weapon after making White Oar.

Arie Hon stays at the 100th floor of the Tower as the head of Arie family, and his territory is the largest of the 10 families. He is famous for giving special tests to the regulars with an extraordinary reward, but the level of difficulty is so high that most of the regulars don't even dare take them.

The last person to past the special test is his daughter, Arie Hagipherione Zahard, and the reward is still unknown. The rumor says it was a 'very personal and childish reward'.

Urek Mazino also passed this test, and that is when he fought Arie Hon. Arie Hon's task was to endure his attacks for 10 minutes, but Urek Mazino fought evenly. Urek Mazino becomes the most famous Ranker on the Tower thanks to this oppotunity. The reward from Arie Hon was the transfer of the control over one of the floor in Arie Mazino's posession. After Urek became the Ranker, the 77th floor became his, and he transfered the control again to Backryun, who set up the stronghold of the Walhabacksong there.

Koon Eduan
Sobriqect: Marlin, Blue Advance
Age: Unknown
Height: 227cm
Birthplace: Unknown
Position: Spearmaster, Fisherman
Rank: 6

One of the head of the 10 families. Father of Koon Agero Agnis.

Known for manganimous personality and taking delight in fighting. His sobreqect is Marlin, Blue Advance. The name Marlin was given by likening his enormous spear, and there's a rumor that if he decompresses his spear it would pierce half of the Tower. (The name of his spear is Mago. When Mago is ignited it's compression grade goes high up to abnormal figure.)

Another of his sobriquet, Blue Advance, is from the property of the Shinsoo he controls. The Shinsoo he controls is very fast and has tremendous electical power. There were a lot of opinions that his sobriqet should be the Electric Eel because of this property, but Koon Eduan directly showed refusal, threatening he would 'kill everyone who called him an eel'. In the end, his sobriquet bacame Marlin.

Koon Eduan is famous for his lewdness, and he is the man with the most wives of the 10 family heads. He has a lot of children, so there are a lot of veiled competion among his children in the family. Too much competition has created the 'official' fights. It is held once a year, with the following rule: 'When the children of Koon become the age of 10, they are to fight each other. The winners are recogized as the true children of Koon.' The winners are recognized as the true children and gets the crest of the family, but the losers become the 'abandoned' and do not get the crest. Although the fights are inhuman and bloody, Koon himself says he's 'not very interested'.

One of his daughter, Koon Maschenny Zahard, is the owner of the Yellow May, and is the only princess of Zahard in his family who is given one of the 13 month weapons.

Koon Eduan had prepared a special test with a shocking condition, which is 'Whoever fight him and win is given everything of the family', but none of the regulars have survived the test so far.

Eurasia Enne Zahard
Sobriquet: Great White Shark
Age: 482 (sealed after)
Height: 174cm
Birthplace: Unknown
Position: Fisherman
Rank: 7

Only princess who had owned the Colorless December. Displayed extremely talented abilities, and was graded differently with other princesses. She was highly suported with her gorgeous looks and pacific personality. She went up to the top of the Tower fast and became one of the Rankers.

But after she became a Ranker and was given the Colorless December she started to change oddly. Sometimes she killed with no reasons. She would wear pacific expression, and suddenly attack people in anger.

About the same time Garam Zahard killed Uram Zahard and seized the Indigo July, and the rumor that Enne Zahard was connected to the two princesses started to spread. Some days later, Garam Zahard and Enne Zahard disappeared. (They became the High-rankers after this incident. Garam Zahard was given the sobriqect of Mako Shark, and Enne Zahard was given the sobriqect of Great White Shark.)

The battle between the princesses did not cause problem(even when they killed each other). But the disappearence of the insane princesses in the possesion of the 13 month weapons was a serious matter, so Zahard ordered to catch the two princesses quickly.

Garam Zahard was sane (contrary to the rumors) and was able to hide herself, but Enne Zahard was different. She knocked down Zahard's men and killed a lot of Rankers who chased her. But even she couldn't oppose all of the Rankers, and Enne Zahard was caught and was brought in front of Zahard himself. (Unie Zahard, and Rebecca Pon Zahard was killed, and Koon Maschenny Zahard and Pondo Zahard helped catching her. There's a rumor that Zahard himself interfered. There's another rumor that Heice Zahard who refused the 13 month weapon after becoming a Ranker participated in the battle.)

After this Enne Zahard was sealed in an unknown place, and Colorless December was also sealed, because it was in reckless state like Enne Zahard.

Well... Those are the top seven but even Yuri is considered a high ranker, and she is around 500!!! Every floor of the tower is ruled by a high ranker, like Evankhell who is around 60 and is the ruler of the second floor....

Well, if you have a link to the source could you kindly post in this thread in order for me to put it on the first post. This would save me the trouble of looking for it on the internet. In addition it gives readers, who are new to Tower of God a nice overview. :D

There it is! If the ranker is at top 1% he is a high ranker! There are 1000 high rankers, so we may assume there are around 100.000 rankers!!!! About Yuri, she said she was a high ranker in a chapter her companions asked her and everybody was "Wooow", I suppose they don't know Evan is one too....

Are you sure that everything in this wiki is completely reliable? I didn't find this information in any of the translations (and I think I found the most) so I'm a bit sceptic about it and where this information comes from :/

Same here. I couldn't find these information on batoto this is where I usually get the information about anything Tower of God related. The problem with the wiki is also that you can't 'track' the original author. Somehow it leaves a bad taste...

I'm not sure, but there are things I read there and not on batoto that proved true.... And the editor of the wiki are three guys from batoto, in the link naruto-niichan posted on his latest thread you can find them asking if anyone else could help there...

Anyway, Yuri said in a chapter she was a high ranker, so that much is true.

I looked through the thread a bit, they don't seem to be that reliable :/ sorry but I'm not taking this serious as long as I don't get a link to where this information actually comes from. They often link to the batoto thread but the some of the information written there can't be found in the batoto thread. For me it's just too risky as absolutely anyone can write anything he wants. Of course everyone can decide for himself if he trusts the given information or not.

And yeah I know that, I included some of them in the Authors Blog Translations.

We are getting offtopic though, so anything else regarding this matter should be discussed in the Hangout thread.
