  • Big Brother Mentor: To Takiko.
  • The Consigliere: He was Mr. Okuda's right hand and research advisor. He keeps the book after his boss and Takiko's deaths, and after his own daughter Suzuno's adventures in it, he's the one who sends it to the National Library.
  • Nice Guy
  • Precocious Crush: Takiko's feelings for him.

Uruki

Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai [Male], and Miki Nagasawa [Female] (Japanese, CD Drama, Game)

Hikitsu

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese, CD Drama, Game, Fushigi Yuugi TV series)

  • Berserk Button: Never. Ever. EVER bring up questions and/or topics to make him freely define and praise his sister, otherwise you'll be the victim of his unstoppable Motor Mouth.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Plays this role on all of the younger teammates, but he's the major one to Tomite and sister Aila.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Of Tomite.
  • Blood Brothers: With Tomite.
  • Chef of Iron: Revealed this hidden talent in an official bonus interview, a Type 1, and he's even proud of it too!
  • Combo Platter Powers: Instead of the normal One Person, One Power gameplay, he won quite a loaded up Superpower Lottery and got 2 categories specially split up for him!
    • Elemental Powers: (Power Category 1)
    • His Shikyoukan (Power Category 2). This is Hikitsu's most powerful ability, but this is also his Power Incontinence in which has to use an eyepatch to limit his usage. His eye powers has several skill levels, which include:
      • I Know What You Fear = Mind Rape: A Type 3, basically a forgotten/suppressed-memory reactivation. Though it may not always generate fear, this certainly can easily trigger the worst pasts in people. This power automatically activates whenever a person looks directly into his right eye, and have the viewer experience the memory by him or herself, with Hikitsu reading the contents on the outside of the vision. This mode was done on Tomite, Shigi, and in one accidental occasion sends Takiko back to the real world.
      • Mind Reading: In a premium drama, he accidentally, and later purposefully, activates this ability when he uses his right eye to look at a person who's not looking at him.
      • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Even better, his eye ability was taken Up to Eleven when it's revealed that he can see through lifeless objects by touching the object and activating his eye to obtain the object's history, and its owner's backgrounds as well. Through this method, he can understand people's entire historical background without them even aware of it, and has achieved a surprising Caught on Tape moment for the story plot to forward on.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's a subtle one, if you don't listen to him closely you might not even notice.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: He went undercover successfully as one of the royal musicians playing the erhu during one of Emperor Tegiru's banquets.
  • Fanservice = The Bandage Babe: As one of the most bundled up conservative hotties among the men, it was a jawdropper to know that he has the most Shirtless Scene count to whenever he has bandages on.
    • He was also found with a bandage wrapped around his right eye during his first appearance, along with his flashback on childhood.
  • Greater Need Than Mine / You Are Not Alone: Teamwork-wise, Hikitsu would be the first person to jump in to protect and support his teammates, sacrificing his own benefits for the sake of others.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • Hidden Depths
  • Long Haired Prettyboy
  • Minored In Ass Kicking: Totally minored if you realized he's actually the 2nd strongest in line (the most powerful being Urumiya). For the most part, he just prefers to lay back and babysit the others.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: The one time on frame he comes lashing out on Takiko for reentering their world with the same face (and level of anger) as Tomite proves that this is one dead-serious issue.
  • Precious Wolves: Awwww~ He was found with one~!
    • He befriends a whole bunch of them in the PS2 game quite easily, I wonder how.
    • Mainly serves as an indication of what his personality is like. Yet in his bonus interview, when asked what animal does he portray himself as, he said he's a Leopard.
  • Promotion to Parent: Since his preteens at the very least.
  • Spy Fiction: The area of proficiency where Hikitsu shines as a Celestial Warrior is to be a secret agent. Too bad he doesn't have many chances to perform it.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The stunning Wise Guy with a surprising Boke twist to Tomite.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Normally a Stoic Woobie, but once you know him you'll notice that he's a soft cookie baked in an oven.
  • Team Mom: He buys horses, he buys weapons, he manages money, he calmly solves teammates' disputes, all in the story's spare time. And by Genbu, he makes bento boxes, bakes chocolate cookies, and offers to comb his sister's hair in his sleep talk too! With so much in terms of contribution, Takiko pasted this badge right on his face!
  • The Smart Guy

It was not until the event of Tegiru overthrowing Temudan that she needed to flee the palace due to her husband being labeled as part of Temudan's army.
  • Team Dad: Known for grounding her not-even-half-her-age teammates the firm way, and plus, Hikitsu's the officially deemed Mom, there's no need for her to be motherly at all!

  • Knight of Cerebus

  • Self-Sacrifice Scheme: As the twin who bares half of the power of Urumiya, the physically weaker in health due to his incurable Soap Opera Disease, and fully understands that his older brother, Tegu has the more responsible and willing personality to uphold the celestial fate, Hagas has been preparing for his own death in order to transfer the full Urumiya responsibility to Tegu to have him support the Genbu Team for a long time, and eventually Hagas fulfilled it.
  • The Stoic
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His eyes are going blind.

  • Urumiya Tegu

  • Backup Twin: After Tegu's growth curse has been lifted, he took over Hagas' place in looking after Firuka, and marries her in the end.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He's the older brother and the first of the twins to have his powers awakened, therefore he has the mindset of protecting Hagas since they were toddlers.
  • Bokukko: After being a kid for 17 years, he doesn't kick the habit.
  • Captain Oblivious: He's chained within an unknown cave and was ordered to use his powers whenever he "detects any kind of evading threat." This made him unaware that he himself is delaying the Celestial Warriors' mission to save him.
  • Distressed Dude
  • Eleventh Hour Ranger
  • Last Guy Wins: In the end, He paired up with Firuka in place of his brother.
