The Miroku 7
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (Japanese, Natsuhiko), Akiko Kimura (Japanese, Yukihiko); Michael Morgen (English, both)The childhood friend(s) of Ban. They're really seven siblings in one body (in the anime it's only two); the first one seems to have been Natsuhiko. The others include Hikage, Ukyou, Tsubaki, Tokisada, Yukihiko, and lone female Kirara. When they switch, their appearance changes slightly. They were led to believe that Ban killed their sister Eris, which made them become out for his blood. He did kill her, but in self-defense; she was being controlled by the Black Strings at the time.The kicker is, she wasn't even their sister but their arranged-marriage bride-to-be. The seven siblings are actually only facets of a single person, who would merge into one upon reaching adulthood - merge into Yukihiko's "body", such as it is (but shh, they don't know that).Their father, real older sister, and older brother were Drei Ritter/The Three Knights, guardians of Ban's father der Kaiser.The image is of Natsuhiko Miroku.

- Healing Factor: A weird variant where if one sibling takes a lot of damage then another taps in with none of the previous damage.
- Katanas Are Just Better: All over the place as Natsuhiko wields a katana, but then there's Hikage who has a tsurugi, Tokisada has a nodachi, and Ukyou has a scimitar.
- Knife Nut: Tsubaki who prefers combat knives.
- Lightning Bruiser: Natsuhiko who is as fast as Kirara but as strong as Tokisada.
- Literal Split Personality: Ginji describes the siblings as not simply being Disassociate Identity Disorder, but that are literally seven different people in one body (best exemplified with how the body changes according to the personality in charge). This is exemplified during the final arc where all seven personalities manifest into separate bodies.
