'''Fighting Style:''' Heavenly Five Paths (EOTL) and Dog Fighting\\
'''Fighting Level''': Eight (officially)\\
'''Faction:''' Nine Dragons\\
'''Veritas:''' To be the strongest]

A reckless teen who only desires more phsyical power. A chance encounter with his master changes his life. Gangryong is the sole remaining practitioner of the Enlightenment Of Thunder and Lightning (EOTL). Though fairly dense, he shows an aptitude for battle and street smarts that seem well-suited to his underdog status at the Reunion school. Mouthy and disrespectful, he has a penchant for making enemies. He could be described as "people dumb". He was originally brought to the school by Fire Dragon's sponsorship in an attempt to topple Vera as student council president.

Gangryong is slowly making progress in his skills and with that the understanding and insight on those skills work.

As of the 4-month timeskip, he's now on-par with individual members of the student council and has been spending his time beating the crap out of Level 8 students coming at him in groups.

[[WMG:Yoochun]]
[floatboxright:
'''AKA''': Lightning Tiger\\
'''Fighting Styles:''' Heavenly Five Paths (EOTL) and Northern Broad Strike]

Yoochun aka ''Lightning Tiger'', was Ma Gangryoung's martial arts master, who taught him EOTL. As a master of EOTL, one of the Heavenly Five Paths and a traditional martial art, Yoochun opposed the goals of the Reunion and became their greatest enemy. During a fateful night Lighting Tiger attacks the Reunion school, leaving a lasting impression that still affects Gangryong's life at the school. A fan of anime, he liked to imitate some of his favorite attacks. Yoochun did not believe that a practitioner of EOTL would benefit from artificial ki, as EOTL relied more on refinement of ki than on quantity. He is assumed to be dead.

* Main/{{Badass}}: Part of this is because he taught Vera the meaning of "fear".
* MrFanservice
* Main/GoodIsNotNice: From what we've seen about him, he isn't all that nice. To be honest, he seems to be an even bigger asshole than Gangryong. Although that can be because we've only seen him interacting with his enemies, and people he didn't know.
* Main/{{Mentor}}: Unlike most mentors, he's much younger than the standard.
* Main/{{Otaku}}
* Main/NeverFoundTheBody: There's speculation that he's still alive. A skull was supposedly found that matched LT's dental records.
* Main/PosthumousCharacter: There are several flashback panels that explain how Lightning Tiger affect the lives of several people and starts off a few subplots.
* Main/SecretTestOfCharacter
* Main/ShockAndAwe

* Main/WorthyOpponent: He's this to Vera.

[[WMG:Honse Gu]]
[floatboxright:
'''Fighting Style:''' N/A\\
'''Faction:''' Nine Dragons/traditional]

One of the leaders of the Nine Dragons Faction. Gangryong was put in the care of Honse by friends Rud and Jeeha. On the surface, he is a cowardly man who doesn't like getting mixed up with Gangryong's messes. However, beneath his foolish persona, he is very dangerous. He was, at one point, the third-strongest student at the school. In addition, he was a shrewd tactician who developed many techniques, some of which were specifically designed to counter the fighting style of Reunion such as "Half-step", he also helped Rud learn "Sharpened Sword force". Honse destroyed his own ki channels so that Guesong and the other members of the student council would spare his life and allow him to stay at Reunion until graduation, saying he had no where else to go, since he was an orphan. [[spoiler:It was later reveled that it was all a ploy to make it look like destroyed his ki channels. Honse has been training himself with Southern Taek-Gyun.]]

* Main/BadassCape
* Main/BadassNormal
* Main/BaldOfAwesome
* Main/{{Chessmaster}}
* Main/CoolShades: Honse is never seen without his glasses.
* Main/CripplingOverspecialization: Honse spent the past four years training for the sole purpose of being able to counter Vera's fighting style for one match. Against anyone else he'd be a complete wuss. That is why Gangryong, who has a knack for being able to tell if someone is strong or not, can't sense any strength in Honse.
* Main/DePower: Honse faked this in order to fool the student council that he wasn't a threat.
* Main/GeniusBruiser: He was this before he was forced to close his ki channels.
* Main/InformedAbility: The manhwa has stated a few times that he's the one of the most powerful students at school but his abilities are never shown.
* Main/LovableCoward
* Main/{{Mentor}}
* Main/NonActionGuy
* Main/ObfuscatingStupidity: While he does act like a fool, it's cover.
* Main/ParentalAbandonment: When Honse pleaded for his life, he claimed that he was an orphan and nowhere else to go.
* Main/PluckyComicRelief
* Main/{{Sidekick}}
* Main/TheSmartGuy: Honse has developed techniques to counter Reunion style martial arts, like the half step. He also help Rud make his martial art, Feline Claws, more powerful.
* Main/WeakButSkilled: While he's overly specialized in fighting against Heaven's Riches and weak against all the other martial arts, he's a genius at improving the other martial arts and seeing the weaknesses in techniques.

[[WMG:Rud Han]]
[floatboxright:
'''Fighting Style:''' Feline Claws, a minor branch of Southern Taek-Gyun\\
'''Fighting Level''': 11\\
'''Faction:''' Nine Dragons/traditional]

Leader of the Nine Dragons. Looks after Gangryoung at the start of school and guides Gangryoung as if he was an older brother. An iron hand hidden in a velvet glove.

A member of the council who is opposed to Vera Linus. Also the Second of the Nine Dragons Faction. Rud was a very frail child with little potential for fighting. His life was once saved by a girl named [[PosthumousCharacter Anichella]], who taught him basic martial arts techniques and arranges for his arrival at the school. She also provides him with information on the Feline Claws fighting style, because she was under orders not to pass on her martial art to anyone. He then pursues this martial art despite its inherent weakness.[[spoiler:He develops a strong grudge against Guhoo Li after he kills Anichella in battle, and uses this motivation to rise to the top of the school.]] With Honse's help, his martial art becomes deadly enough a threat to Guhoo. He and Jeeha Shin have taken Gangryong under their wing, as they are also traditional successors. They seem to have a plan for revenge against Vera and her friends.

* Main/{{Badass}}: Vera views him as potentially even moe of a threat to her than Yuri.
* Main/BewareTheNiceOnes: Rud; I don't think you know how much I'd like to kill you. Or, maybe you don't think I can kill a person?
* {{Bishonen}}
* Main/{{Chessmaster}}: It was Rud who actually came up with the plan to overthrow the student council.
* Main/CombatPragmatist: Uses the surroundings to his advantage in his fight against Guhoo.
* Main/{{Determinator}}: Became one of the top fighters in schol with nothing but hard work and willpower.
* Main/HeirToTheDojo: With the death of Anichella, it is possible he became this for Southern Taek-Gyun. Possibly hinted at, Southern Taek-Gyun is described as a physical fighting style. Rud showed very high prowess in hand-to-hand combat in his fight against Guhoo, easilly out-pacing his opponent.
* MrFanservice
* Main/IllBoy: Rud was this as a child and he was pretty weak when he first to Reunion's school. He managed to overcome this with will power and with some help from Honse.
* Main/ItsPersonal: See revenge.
* Main/KiAttacks
* Main/{{Revenge}}: This the main reason he really wants a death match with Guhoo.

The student council president. An [[Main/EmotionlessGirl outwardly cold girl]], she is the most powerful student at the school. Her sister, Yuri, is the head of Reunion. In the past, she fought Lightning Tiger, and the incident left a scar and a strong impression. [[spoiler:Lightning Tiger discovered that Yuri put a seal on Vera to keep her from being a threat to her.]] Though he was her enemy, she regards him almost as a former lover. Her initial impression of Gangryong is that he is useless. That has since then evolved into anger against him. She blames Gangryong for the death of his master. She fights using the Arts of Heaven's Rich Strength. Vera opposes Reunion and Yuri's plan to take over the world.

She plans to be the successor of the Heaven Riches'. To this end, she has been meeting other Heaven Riches' factions and other martial arts masters for backing when she tries for title. Vera has been doing this behind Fire Dragon's back. What Vera has offered in exchange for the support from the other faction is unknown at this time.

Vera's second-in-command. She is fond of making very offensive comments whilst making a very nice face. She appears to have some history with Jeeha, and also is in a relationship with Guhoo. Her powers have yet to be revealed in full. She really doesn't like Gangryong on the account his master [[Main/CurbStompBattle terrorized the school]].

A 19 year-old member of council who also worked as Reunion's tracker for Lightning Tiger. She seems to be the middle ground amongst the two sides of the council, as she works for Vera and has friendly relationship with Rud's group and has shown signs of having a crush on Rud. She is the one who scouted Gangryong during her hunt for Lightning Tiger. Her motives are unclear at this moment but she claims to be part of the council for their special privileges and is ranked amongst the Top 5 of the council. Her desire is for things to go back to the way they were before the division of the factions. Had a long stand feud with Guesong over him attacking Vera.

The head disciple of the Southern Yardplay Faction and member for 15 years, and the Fifth Dragon and eldest of the Nine Dragons. He has an almost fanatical obsession with Vera, at one point leading him to betray his allegiance to the traditional successors at the Reunion school. It was his idea to threaten and attack Honse, leading to the closing of his ki passages. His violent reaction to Vera's rejection led to a long standing feud with Madoka and deciding to keep whatever Vera holds dear away from her, since only then would she look at him. His reason for falling for her was to make her smile since ever since she was child she never did. [[spoiler:He defeats Madoka in chapter 45 but is killed when Vera interfered in her place, finally getting a kiss. Only to find out that wasn't her first kiss.]]

* Main/{{Badass}}: One example is this is when Madoka cut his neck and slashing a major artery. He stops the bleeding by heating his hands and burning the cut to close it.

A male student with short blond hair. He helped Guesong defeat Honse and later confirmed that Honse's ki channels were irreparably damaged. Hayato was apparently the person who stopped Guesong, which indicates that he is a powerful and strong martial artist in order to defeat someone of Guesong's caliber. Though we later find out that Hayato never really stopped Guesong so his level is still unknown but should be in the general ball park of Guesong and Madoka.
