[[folder:The Miroku 7]]
!!! Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSeki (Japanese, Natsuhiko), Creator/AkikoKimura (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. [[spoiler:He did kill her, but in self-defense; she was being controlled by the Black Strings at the time.]]

[[spoiler: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).]]

[[spoiler: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.
* AdaptedOut: All but Natsuhiko and Yukihiko in the anime.
* AllYourPowersCombined: In their final confrontation with Ginji, all seven Miroku merge together into Yukihiko, who then has full access to their particular talents and abilities.
* AxCrazy: Ukyou
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Yukihiko is easily the most dangerous.
* BigDamnHeroes: Pulls this to save Emishi from the Ura-Fuuchouinn.
* BladeOnAStick: Kirara
* BlindWeaponmaster: Hikage
** EyesAlwaysShut: Hikage, but mainly because he's blind.
* ConfusionFu: Ukyou who jumps around like an acrobat and wields a weird scimitar that's immune to electricity. In fact, the overall fighting style of the Seven could be called this. They fight by switching between personalities, bodies, and fighting styles in the middle of battle, changing things up on the fly so that if an opponent adapts to one of them, they simply switch to another to throw him off.
* CrazyPrepared: Ukyou apparently, upon learning that Ginji would be one of their opponents, took the opportunity to switch to a weapon made from a nonconductive substance.
* FragileSpeedster: Kirara
* GenderBender: Kirara [[spoiler: especially when you consider that "she" is a facet of Yukihiko's personality]]
%%* GravitySucks: Yukihiko's Immaterial New Moon
* HealingFactor: A weird variant where if one sibling takes a lot of damage then another taps in with none of the previous damage, while the damage taken by the previous one is released when they re-manifest.
* IaijutsuPractitioner: Hikage.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: 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.
%%* KnifeNut: Tsubaki who prefers combat knives.
* [[spoiler:LastOfHisKind]]: [[spoiler:The Drei Ritter died a long time ago serving Der Kaiser against the Voodoo King. With the unification of the seven personalities, Yukihiko is the last person of the Miroku bloodline.]]
* LightningBruiser: Natsuhiko who is as fast as Kirara but as strong as Tokisada.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: 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.
%%* MightyGlacier: Tokisada who wields a MASSIVE nodachi.
%%* NiceGuy: Yukihiko
%%* PutOnABus
%%* {{Revenge}}: Their motivation.
* SmurfettePrinciple: Kirara is the lone female personality.
* SplitPersonality: Able to switch with each other in a fight. [[spoiler: Turns out they're all personas of Yukihiko.]]
%%* TokenGoodTeammate: Yukihiko
* WalkingArmory: They carry around a huge bag in order to carry all their weapons.
%%* YoungestChildWins: Yukihiko
