Ascended Extra - Hero of Another Story: Takiko was only mentioned in the original manga, and had a small cameo in the TV series. She then got a whole manga to herself and her adventures with the Genbu Warriors.
Defiled Forever: Takiko climbs into bed topless with the girl she found, hoping to absorb her fever and bring it down. However, as Uruki, this girl does not stay a girl, and Takiko freaks out, saying how she'd never be able to marry.
Parents as People: He is pretty cold to his Ill Girl wife and his Yamato Nadeshiko daughter. He eventually does admit he was wrong, apologizes to Takiko, and tells her that it was because he wanted to use the Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho to heal Mrs. Okuda.
Yamato Nadeshiko: Just like Takiko. In example, she worries quite a bit about her fatal illness screwing up with her daughter's current and future happiness, specially since she's bullied at school for it.
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.
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.
Minored In Ass Kicking: Totally minored if you realized he's actually the 2nd strongest in line note when you count the most powerful one being Urumiya, that is. Otherwise he'll be number one.. For the most part, he just prefers to lay back and babysit the others.
Big Brother Worship: Towards Hikitsu, and how! Tomite believed in Hikitsu so much, that he wasn't even aware that he gave himself further amnesia regarding Hikitsu accidentally injuring his mom and almost killing her besides the Trauma-Induced Amnesia he has inflicted on himself where he accidentally froze Aila into ice.
The Medic: Both of his parents were doctors, so it was not surprising that he was exposed to the knowledge of medicine at such an early age as he is. But he's been pumping up more knowledge during the spare time of the story reading medical books throughout the journey in preparation just in case any of his teammates gets sick.
The Speechless: He's made out of stone, therefore he has no vocal cords to speak. It's only through wearing the necklace that Anlu the Oracle gave Takiko that he can be able to communicate to the wearer. The only other person possible to communicate with Namame without the necklace is most likely Hikitsu due to his mind-reading ability.
Legacy of Service: She was born into the line of royal servanthood, her mom was one of the Hokkan Palace's Chambermaids, and Inami has been serving inside the palace since she was 8. 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!
Mega Manning / All Your Powers Combined: His power, and he's got Uruki and Tomite's abilities already. But it's even scarier to know that he doesn't need to defeat anybody to obtain all of the other seishis powers if he actually wants to.
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.
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. note Worth noting, since it's easily Lost in Translation. It's common for men in Japan to address themselves boku in normal conditions, but it's generally reserved for boys prior to puberty. In Tegu's case, one reason for the pronoun is that since he's been a child for a lengthy amount of time, the childish pronoun just sticks with him; while another reason is to differentiate Tegu's personality over Hagas' in showing that Teg holds a respectful and non-threatening personality towards others.
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.
Supernatural Sensitivity: He uses this to detect the seishis' power activity and if their power usage is near the defense territory, he deactivates their powers.
Theme Music Power-Up = Music for Courage: After becoming the official Urumiya, his vocal powers serves mainly as the power-up support to the six Celestial Warriors, along with some warm spiritual healing towards the people of Hokkan.
Darkand Troubled Past: Watching your family and clan be brutally slaughtered and then getting castrated does not equal a happy childhood
Dissonant Serenity: Just look how calm he is slashing people up with blood smeared across his face. He eventually loses his calm facade when he slowly realizes how ineffective his army and fighting skills are at dealing with the Genbu miko and warriors
Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite being defeated numerous times by the Genbu Warriors Shigi still manages to show horrific signs of sociopathy when he harms/kills innocents for aiding the Warriors. Anlu and the child oracle find out the hard way
Soft-Spoken Sadist: Look at fast Hien grows silent with just one word from an obviously annoyed Shigi.
They Look Just Like Everyone Else: Takiko overhears Shigi and Hien discuss why they joined the Kutou Army and realizes they're child soldiers having to find a way to live by their own means.
The Unfettered: After Prince Hakei rescued Shigi from a harem he became completely devoted to Hakei, his obsession with killing the Genbu Warriors initially begins because of his loyalty to Hakei and the Kutou army. When Hakei changes his mind of killing the warriors after Genbu's summoning Shigi cannot handle this fact since his entire life revolved around the warrior's demise.
They Look Just Like Everyone Else: Takiko realizes he is a child soldier and is finding a way to sort out his own issues. Appearance-wise, Hien looks similar to Tomite, in fact, the headband is the only way to tell them apart.
I'm Dying, Please Take My MacGuffin: Her necklace is made out of the same rock as Namame. Originally was used to aid Takiko on the search for her Celestial Warriors, but then it would later become one of the Shinzahos required to summon the beast gods, Suzaku and Seiryuu in the future.
Kid with the Leash: Toyed with, as she was Namame's only friend until it joined the Genbu Warriors.
