Name: Keiya Tenpouin
Keiya is a powerful sorcerer from Tenpouin clan, who have gained power through ancient Chinese yin-yang philosophies. Little is known of his early life, or the details of the incident that led him to save Midori Himeno's life. It's possible some decency and goodness lies within him, but he hides it well if so. Keiya is a ruthless man who will not hesitate for a moment to kill anyone who gets in his way, nor regret his acts afterwards.
His only friend was another sorcerer from Tenpouin clan, Himika. She was one year older than him and saw Keiya as a little brother. Linedwell Rainrix defeated her and drained her energy, leaving her comatose and near-death. Keiya is determined to exact revenge, as well as gain the power he needs to save Himika. To that end, upon being unexpectedly summoned to I-Praseru, he quickly resolves to seek out Ihadulca and take her vast power for his own. Heaven help any fool that gets in his way.
Keiya is quite a renaissance man, not only being magically potent, but also a powerful hand to hand combatant, a noh theatre performer and a snappy dresser. His sorcerous abilities, among others, include being able to summon oni with spirit wards, creating entrapping magic circles, and distorting reality around his opponent to mask his movements and render his attacks undetectable before they strike. Based on yin-yang philosophy, Keiya's characteristic elements are Water, Turtle, Black, Wisdom, Yin.

Theme Song: The Edge
BLADE'S FINAL WORD: Keiya totally has the best "next episode previews", where he pretends to be a radio self-help guru who answers letters from the characters he's going to kill next episode. Seriously. It's totally awesome.
I wonder if his age is actually right? He might actually be 24. I mean, he looks and acts it. But probably he's 18 or something.
