Sonsaku Hakufu (Sun Ce)
Voiced by: Masumi Asano (Japanese), Carrie Savage (Seasons 1, 3, and 4), Angora Deb (Season 2) (English), María Fernanda Morales (Latin-American Spanish)The protagonist. A second-year transfer student at Nanyo, she is not terribly bright, but is immeasurably powerful despite being only a D-ranked fighter. She possesses a unique gift for predicting an enemy's moves very accurately by reading the flow of chi around her opponents, which occasionally makes her seem brighter than she is. For instance, she will put an end to a fight simply by stating the next moves of an opponent with frightening accuracy, breaking his will to fight after he realizes the futility of fighting her. She is also very good at "delayed striking", where she makes a feint attack in order to leave an invisible "chi bomb" which detonates moments later while the enemy's guard is down. She is skilled at "inner striking," which is another chi attack where she sends her chi into a person, causing damage to manifest at unusual places. She also inherited Master Chosho's knowledge of chi magic, and, while currently unaware of this, is able to use it partially by instinct. Chosho passed it to her spiritually while Hakufu was unconscious; this is how she healed Koukin after she stabbed him; she slept with Koukin and extracted the evil chi from his body into her own. She still has the evil chi contained inside her, and it appears on her body as a skull-like mark and is slowly creeping up to her heart.

- Boisterous Bruiser: She has an exhuberant personality and can take down enemies with ease.
- Chaste Hero: Not only is she too innocent (thinking that three men picking her up to Karaoke only want to have dinner with her), she's having far too good a time fighting to even be interested in sex.
- Cool Big Sis: How Chuubou views her.
- Cute Bruiser: A cute girl who is a competent fighter.
- Easily Forgiven: The most admirable trait with this girl is that she does not hold grudges period; once the fight is over, anyone, even last-season's enemies, are affectionately embraced as friends.
- Expy: Bears a slight resemblance in appearance to Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion, complete with a partnership with a Rei Ayanami Expy (Ryomou).

- Because You Were Nice to Me: He loves Hakufu because she used to protect him and cheer him up when they were kids.

She believes her destiny is to die protecting Ryuubi.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Of the spear variety.
- Action Girl: One of the strongest in the series.
- Ambiguously Bi: She's definitley attracted to women. However it's left ambiguous if she's into men or not.
- Berserk Button: Do NOT threaten to harm Seito or any of its students, especially Ryuubi, in any way. Several fools who tried to attack Seito learned this the hard way.

- Clingy Jealous Girl//Covert Pervert: Traits cranked Up to Eleven in Great Guardians, overshadowing the honorable and noble character that defined her.

- Psycho Lesbian: Skirted the line in Great Guardians. Not completely her fault, since she was under the influence of a MacGuffin. She's snapped out of it, thank god.
- Rapunzel Hair: One wonders how she hasn't stepped on the tips of her own hair by now; it's the female version of Guan Yu's magnificent beard.
- Red Baron: Warrior Goddess. For good reason, too.
- Schoolgirl Lesbians: With Ryuubi. It's implied that they have been friends since childhood.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Her scenes contain more Fanservice than the other vixens.

- Berserk Button: A mild example, but apparently knocking over her chess pieces.
- Obfuscating Disability: Implied, since she gets out of her wheelchair and stars running around in the season finale, though it's not clear if she was always faking or if it was because she was being used as a Soul Jar at that point. If she was actually faking it has precedent with her previous incarnation, who also faked an illness.
