!!Seine Miyazaki
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Seine_7390.jpg]]

Seine Miyazaki is a 300 year old girl with an immortal body who Tatsuya invites to live in his home; before that she lived in a cardboard box in a park. In the first chapter, Seine looks like a masochist because she seems to like being bullied. Actually, she becomes close to people who are infected by "mushis", a kind of parasitic, mind-controlling bugs, in order to hunt them. Her hunting ways go against the kind and pacifist Tatsuya's beliefs. Her motive is to avenge her foster father, Simon's death by killing the people of sea, the mermaids. She controls a black snake called Aion that lives inside her. Her weakness is her inability to swim.
