Characters of the anime/manga ''Manga/{{Kekkaishi}}''.



!'''Yoshimori Sumimura'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroyukiYoshino (Japanese), Creator/VicMignogna (English)
* BarrierWarrior: Shield and club, really.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He gets worked up often over minor things, and is a little too preoccupied with cake, but he's good at making Ayakashi explode.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: The early parts of the series really love to browbeat the guy despite him trying to put his all into what he does, juggling his daily life with his duties as a Kekkashi and it being pretty stressful. Granted sometimes it's justified (he tends to favor force over finesse and that can lead into some bone-headed decisions), but more often than not it seems everyone getting on his case for no reason just because he does something they don't agree with (Making cakes as a hobby, him not knowing certain things, a technique going wrong because someone interrupted him, etc).
* {{Determinator}}: Boundless energy and drive is his greatest strength. It's pointed out by his Madarou.
* HairTriggerTemper: It doesn't take much to set him off. It's especially noticable next to the much more serene Tokine.
* HiddenDepths: Likes to make cakes in his spare time much to Tokine's annoyance since she thinks he should focus more on training. [[spoiler: After Gen dies, he puts his cooking utensils away to strengthen his powers, which surprises Tokine and makes her realize [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness that he's actually getting serious]].]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Inverted, "A lion boils even a rabbit with all its strength!" He goes all out, even on puny Ayakashi.
* IdiotHero: Somewhat. In most series he'd probably be considered a fairly smart fighter; he just stands out here because everyone else fights very intelligently and he tends to fight through instinct and pure power too often. His older brother and [[WeakButSkilled Tokine]] are the major foils.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: [[spoiler:He blames himself for being able to save Gen, and uses this as his motivation for revenge.]]
* LikesOlderWomen: Yoshimori likes older girl Tokine. Later in the manga, he saves another girl of similar age from a high fall and she briefly becomes his StalkerWithACrush. This has led to others accusing him of preferring older girls.
* MustHaveCaffeine: Or coffee flavored milk.
* MyGreatestFailure:
** Allowing Tokine to be injured because of his own mistakes.
** [[spoiler: Later, the death of Gen.]]
* SingleTargetSexuality: Yoshi has only had eyes for only one girl: [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Tokine]].
* SittingOnTheRoof: He has a favorite spot to nap and everything.
* SweetTooth: All those cakes....
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Coffee milk.
* TripleShifter: Between being a kekkaishi, student and son at home
* UnskilledButStrong: He has ridiculous amounts of power, but bad aim and form.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Once from Tokine for intentionally getting captured by Kokuboro, forcing his allies to endanger themselves to rescue him, and from Tokiko, minus a slap, for trying to save the school from an Ayakashi swarm with a technique he had NO IDEA how to use and probably would have ended up killing everyone.]]

!'''Tokine Yukimura'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Rie Saitou (Japanese), Creator/LauraBailey (English)
* ActionGirl: Strikes down Ayakashi every night.
* BarrierWarrior: Part of her CharacterDevelopment is shifting from standard barriers to daggers that hold Ayakashi in place because this better reflects her natural skills.
* BrainyBrunette: She's highly intelligent.
* CombatPragmatist: Observe the enemy, find any weaknesses, and then bring them down at the first opportunity.
* CryCute: [[spoiler: In the final episode when AngerBornOfWorry kicks in.]]
* DisappearedDad: Her dad dies pre-series.
* ScarsAreForever: Has one on her hand after protecting Yoshimori from a demon.
* SkirtOverSlacks
* {{Tsundere}}: Mild version. Alternates between fanship fodder moments with Yoshimori, treating him as a coworker/classmate, treating him like a kid brother, treating him like an ''annoying'' kid brother, beating him up for annoying her, and beating him up while crying her eyes out for worrying him, then playing the trope as straight as possible by beating him up while trying to apologize to him.
* WeakButSkilled: She doesn't have Yoshimori's endless energy or sheer power but she has far greater accuracy and skill in manipulating Kekkai. The logical conclusion is that her signature style switches from giant Kekkai that she implodes around Ayakashi to small, thin Kekkai that she uses to stab them and hold them in place.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's terrified of cockroaches. Probably not helped by the bug Ayakashi that scarred her hand as a child, but fear of cockroaches also runs in the family.
* YamatoNadeshiko: The rest of the school thinks she is. [[LadyOfWar The main characters and her best friend know better.]] However, she does perform tea ceremonies with her grandmother in traditional clothing.

!'''Shigemori Sumimura'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Youhei Tadano (Japanese), David Lodge (English)
* BadassGrandpa: When the Ayakashi become too much for the kids to handle, he steps in.
* BarrierWarrior: He can make Kekkai too.
* CoolOldGuy: A loud OldSoldier with EinsteinHair.
* {{Expy}}: He looks like a fusion of [[VideoGame/MegaMan Dr. Wily]] and [[Manga/FairyTail Makarov]].
* GenerationXerox: Subtract the cake fascination and he was just like Yoshimori at his age.
* SitcomArchnemesis: Tokiko. They bicker every morning.

!'''Tokiko Yukimura'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MayumiTanaka (Japanese), Barbara Goodson (English)
* BarrierWarrior: She can make kekkai too.
* CoolOldLady: She is both wise and mischievous.
* GenerationXerox: As a teenager, she was just as aloof and focused as her granddaughter. She's grown mischievous in her old age.
* IWasQuiteALooker: When she was her granddaughter's age, she had her granddaughter's beauty.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Yoshimori can't keep up with her.
* SitcomArchnemesis: Shigemori. She sprays him with a hose.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Like her granddaughter, Tokiko is terrified of cockroaches.

!'''Toshimori Sumimura'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Miyuki Kawasho (Japanese), Creator/DorothyEliasFahn (English)
* DeadpanSnarker: His older brother's antics provide plenty of fuel for sarcasm.
* DissonantSerenity: Due to his older brother's frequent quarrels with their grandfather, living in the Sumimura house is somewhat hectic, but he and his father rarely take notice.
* SatelliteCharacter: He doesn't really stand out compared to his older brothers.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He takes after his dad.

!'''Tokimori Hazama'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JinYamanoi (Japanese), Creator/TravisWillingham (English)
* TheAce: He has beat down god class spirit with ease.
* FluffyTamer: Tamed monsters so well that they still serve his apprentices' families centuries later.
* [[spoiler: IntangibleMan]]
* [[spoiler: LukeIAmYourFather]] For Chushinmaru.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: His reaction to [[spoiler: What his spells did to Chushinmaru.]]
* ShroudedInMyth
* StarCrossedLovers

[[folder: The Night Troops]]

!'''Masamori Sumimura'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AtsushiMiyauchi (Japanese), Creator/PatrickSeitz (English)
* AloofBigBrother
* AntiHero
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As the leader of the night troops, as well as the 6th seat on the heads of the Shadow Organization
* BadPowersGoodPeople: He mastered the [[ThePowerOfHate Zekkai]], which runs off of rejecting the world around you. He's still one of the heroes of the story.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: His story in the Shadow Organization is just as important as Yoshimori's adventures.
* LegendaryCarp: His partner, Kurohime, is a giant black koi that swims through the air.
* TheLeader: of the Night Troops. He's either Type Charismatic or Mastermind; his troops seem to like him but he often acts as a heroic mastermind to counter the more villainous elements in the Shadow Organization.
* GoodIsNotNice
* ManipulativeBastard: It's necessary to counter the villainous aspects of the Shadow Organization.
* SupportingLeader: He leads troops against the director's army. He then [[spoiler: kills both the director and his brother]].
* TokenGoodTeammate: For the Shadow Organization.

!'''Gen Shishio'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Eiji Miyashita (Japanese), Creator/GrantGeorge (English)
* AntiHero
* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler:Impaled by Kaguro.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Was bullied and abused by his brothers, and nearly killed most of his family.
* DefrostingIceKing
* HalfHumanHybrid: Half Ayakashi.
* HealingFactor: As a half ayakkashi, he has one. This is greatly enhanced by Karasumori
* LonersAreFreaks

* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:He was KilledOffForReal just when it looked like he would form a PowerTrio with the others.]]

* TallDarkAndSnarky
* WolfMan: His Ayakashi form is that of a humanoid wolf.

!'''Sen Kagemiya'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RyoheiKimura (Japanese), Creator/SteveStaley (English)
* {{Bishonen}}: The girls at school love him.
* BerserkButton: He's not happy to be compared to a woman.
* DudeLooksLikeALady:
** The bane of his existence. Also makes some of the [[HoYay male bonding scenes]] between him and Yoshimori even more confusing.
** [[spoiler: The tengu also temporally gave him breasts.]] He was not amused.
* FemmeFatalons: Male example
* HalfHumanHybrid
* HandsomeLech
* TheSmartGuy: From time to time, Yoshimori decides that his best plan is to tell Sen what his goals are and then do whatever Sen says.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Can be alternatively spelled ''Z''en.
* {{Telepathy}}: Limited by several things. Kekkaishi and possibly some other ability users block it and even detect or interfere with it. It also provokes a red right hand in the form of his eyes flashing demonic when he uses it. This is worse than it sounds as he needs to be close for it to work. Lastly, Zen is afraid that he will be ostracized even by the other Yagyou if they find out he is able to read their minds, so he does his best to conceal his ability, even when he has information that he [[KeepingSecretsSucks desperately would like to share]].

!'''Atora Hanashima'''

* ActionGirl

* TokenMinority
* TricksterMentor: To Gen
* TheTease: To both Gen and Yoshimori.

[[folder:The Shadow Organization]]

!'''The Sousui/Oumi Nichinaga'''
How to best describe this sadistic ReallySevenHundredYearsOld piece of work? For starters [[spoiler: he lost his memory and is always trying to get it back, and at the same time wants some sweet revenge on that evil little brother of his. How does he want to go about this? KILL EVERYONE IN THE URAKAI. Together with his Numbered minions, he masterminds and manipulates events behind the scenes as The King, an aged man, and as his current container, a young boy]].
* AbelAndCain: You might think [[spoiler:Yumeji/Tsukihisa]] is the Abel to his Cain at first. [[spoiler: Turns out, in comparison, Tsukihisa is much, much worse than Nichinaga could ever be.]]
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:When his real motivations and the circumstances were revealed, it was VERY difficult not to feel sorry for him.]]
* BigBad
* DimensionLord: After Okuni's death, Nichinaga took possession of her seashell pendant, which she appeared to use as a focus for some of her techniques. He has been seen using the eye-shaped portals Okuni commonly used for viewing.
* EnfantTerrible/ EvilOldFolks: He's both a scary brat and an old man at the same time. [[MakesSenseInContext It's complicated]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: [[spoiler: It might not look like it, but he adores his minions and especially Suigetsu. [[TearJerker Oh, especially Suigetsu.]]]]
* EvilVsEvil: With his brother.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:Both Nichinaga and his brother are able to forcibly take over the bodies of others, transferring their own minds into a new body. They have survived this way for centuries, taking over other ability users in order to gain a second power. However, repeated use of this ability causes the memory of the user to gradually deteriorate]].
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: When his little brother possesses his favorite minion and sets wheels of plots in motion to make him essentially lose everything again, he remembers, the truth is revealed, and Nichinaga repents with death.]]
* HellishPupils: With two irises in fact, that make him seriously unnerving.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MassHypnosis: [[spoiler: Uses this to steal the Ougi family's army.]]
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:His response to his brother's schemes is to '''kill everyone in the orgainzation'''.]]

* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler:He kills himself and his brother by tossing them both into Masamori's Zekkai.]]
* SugarAndIcePersonality: [[spoiler:To Suigetsu. He loves her, a lot. He just really doesn't show it much until the end.]]
* TakenForGranite: Though rarely seen doing so, Nichinaga could control earth while in the King's body, easily raising protective barriers out of the ground that are capable of regenerating rapidly if damaged.

!!'''The Council of Twelve''''
!!Tropes Associated With The Council Of Twelve
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: You must have absolute mastery of supernatural powers in order to be a member. They also are the twelve heads above everyone in the organization; only the Sousui is above them.
* FaceFramedInShadow: A lot of them before they were each revealed.
* KarmaHoudini: Because the anime was cut short, members--especially Ichirou--never got the comeuppance that occurs in the manga.
* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: Initially they were this, as all of them were shrouded in darkness.
* WeHaveReserves: They have a total lack of regard to the deaths of their men, which infuriates Masamori.

The 12th seat of the group
* BrutalHonesty: Juho is very blunt-spoken.
* FinishingMove: Dragon Hole. Juho draws a hole on the ground and stands upon it, creating a network of smaller holes extending from the main one. He can fire any number of energy pillars, which extend far into the sky, from the holes. The more spiritually powerful the land, the more powerful the effect.
* TakenForGranite: Juho uses earth-based magic which requires him to be in direct contact with the ground. To perform his spells, he essentially aligns himself with the "dragon pulses" of the earth and manipulates that power.

!'''Konozuka Kihei'''
The 11th seat of the group
* InformedAbility: He was a member of the top officials in the Shadow Organization, yet does nothing to show it [[spoiler: before being killed off by Shichirou]].
* MalevolentMaskedMan: He wears a fox mask.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Gets the least characterization of the twelve [[spoiler: and then gets killed off after his introduction]].

!'''Tsumugi Kazuchika'''
The 10th seat of the group
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Tsumugi has a somewhat whimsical nature; he is generally in a good mood and enjoys making small jokes or laughing to himself, but he's one of the twelve for obvious reasons.
* PuppetMaster: Inanimate objects touched by Tsumugi's hair spring to life and form enormous puppets that do his bidding.

The 9th seat of the group
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While she has traded her humanity for knowledge in the past, she also values order and the safety of normal humans.
** [[spoiler: She is also very worried about the danger posed by Karasumori, and requests that the heirs should train in order to better control it.]]
* AmplifierArtifact: She has a shell pendant that she uses to focus her abilities. [[spoiler: It's later used by the Sousui.]]
* AwesomeByAnalysis: She has been shown to be a very observant person on several occasions.
* BadassBookworm: With her vast intelligence and extensive archives, there are few subjects that she's unfamiliar with.
* BlackCloak: Nothing except her eyes are shown.
** InTheHood
* TheHedonist: Okuni lived to discover the truth behind any mystery that caught her attention.
* DimensionLord: Okuni is able to manipulate dimensions like Kekkaishi, but she uses it in a different way. She is capable of opening eye-shaped portals, which are used for remote viewing, as well as focusing tremendous amounts of power on a target.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* OffScreenVillainy: It was rumored that in order to be able to learn everything in the world, Okuni attempted several rituals to keep herself from aging and dying.
* TheRedBaron: The Puzzle Eater.

!'''Ichirou Ogi'''
[[caption-width:210:He's actually more than a FatBastard. [[spoiler: He's also a lump of seven bastards rolled up into one.]]]]

The 8th seat of the group.
* ArchNemesis: Masamori's first one in the Shadow Organization. [[ItsPersonal The feeling is mutual.]]
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Killed offscreen by his brother, Shichirou, but he's such a jerk that no one mourns when he dies.]]
* BadBoss: Kills his own men in his fight with Masamori.
* BlowYouAway
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:He's actually a lump of flesh of seven siblings merged into one body.]]
* CollectiveIdentity: [[spoiler:Ichirou is actually a collection of seven siblings forcibly merged together into one body, with Ichirou as the dominant persona.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:By his own brother, no less.]]
* FatBastard
* GreaterScopeVillain: His cooperation with Byaku, which allows Kaguro to gain information to unnerve Gen [[spoiler: (resulting in his death)]] and his subsequent influence over the following events [[spoiler: prior to his death]] make him this.
* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler:Again, ''he is a collection of seven siblings lumped together in one body''.]]
* JerkAss: He kills his own men, and then shifts the blame to Masamori.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Gets killed by his brother.]]
* LargeAndInCharge
* ManipulativeBastard: He's the [[TheManBehindTheMan reason Kaguro got the information to unnerve Gen enough via Ichirou's conversation with Byaku]], [[spoiler: leading to his death]]. He's also manipulated other people with little regard to the public if they get caught in the crossfire.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Justified. [[spoiler: It hides the BodyHorror.]]
* SharingABody: [[spoiler:The secret of Ichirou's power is that he's a collection of seven siblings working as one.]]


The former 7th seat of the group.
* BackFromTheDead: Repeatedly. [[spoiler: Is still alive, although without his powers.]]
* BishonenLine: Starts out as a middle-aged old man, changes to a distinctly more attractive twenty-something (with cool boots), then finally to a cute kid.
* BrokenPedestal: To Masamori when he sees his teacher becoming a self-absorbed ayakashi.
* ColdBloodedTorture: He ''loves'' his torture. Especially when it's happening to Masamori.
* DeathIsCheap: His power allows this. His nickname isn't "the Immortal" for no reason.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: How can a ball kill someone? Mudou knows every single way!
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Started out in the Urakai whose job was to stop ayakashi from killing people. He then became an ayakashi and... started killing people.
* TheRedBaron: Mudou the Immortal.

!'''Kagen Shiromi'''
The 6th seat of the group
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* LivingWeapon: Kurosame. Described as a curse-power ability, which manifests itself as a black threads which compose the blade, coming from the hilt of the sword. These black threads are incredibly strong and can cut through even the tough nigh-invulnerable exterior of the Kurokabuto Ayakashi. The threads can extend at will and entangle an opponent and slice through it with ease with precision through the use of bold strokes. He talks to the sword, suggesting that it may be sentient.

!'''Kusariba Gaiji'''
The 5th seat of the group
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has one on the left side of his face.
* {{Necromancer}}: He can raise the dead.

The 4th seat of the group

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By Shichirou.]]
* MadScientist: He experiments on humans in his free time.
* PeoplePuppets: He can control people.

The 3rd seat of the group
* AntiVillain
* OneWingedAngel: She can turn into a dragon with tiger stripes, though she's left naked once she turns back.
* [[Really700YearsOld Really 300 Years Old]]
* ScaledUp: As a tiger-striped dragon.
* ShockAndAwe
* TheTease: To Masamori.

!'''Nura Kidoin''''
The 2nd seat of the group
* AntiVillain
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As the second highest ranking member of the group [[spoiler: and later as the new commander after the death of the co-founders]].
* CoolOldLady
* ExtremeDoormat
* FluffyTamer: Nura is a master demon tamer. Her control over Oni is so complete that she can command an entire army of them simply by being in the same general vicinity. Just by being near her, oni naturally desire to serve her and no matter what happens, they will not betray her. The oni are simply happy to give over whatever power they have to offer.
* FountainOfYouth: She can use her ayakashi servants' powers to make her younger in order to enhance her abilities.
* HealingFactor: Drawing out the powers of her servants can allow her to do this.
* AMotherToHerMen: The reason her subordinates show such UndyingLoyalty to her.
* ShrinkingViolet
* TechnicalPacifist
* TokenGoodTeammate
* UndyingLoyalty: Can invoke this from any ayakashi just by being nearby.

!''''Yumeji Hisaomi/[[spoiler: Tsukihisa Oumi]]''''
The chairman of the Council of Twelve and the Sousui's brother. [[spoiler: In truth, he was an individual who manipulated his "brother" to adopt and then rewrite his memories to see him as such, only he had forgotten that they weren't actually siblings by the end.]]
* AbelAndCain: At first it seems he's the Abel to Sousui's Cain. [[spoiler: It's actually a reverse, since Yumeji is far worse than he could ever be.]]
* BodySurf: [[spoiler: Both Tsukihisa and the Sousui have survived for centuries by taking over the bodies of others. By inhabiting the bodies of powerful ability users, they effectively have access to two abilities at once. Tsukihisa's technique is more advanced than the Sousui's.]]
* DeaderThanDead: [[spoiler:When he and the Sousui are dragged into Masamori's zekkai.]]
* EvilVsEvil: With the Sousui.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler: On Zero, and he's done it to several others over the centuries.]]
* GreenThumb: He has an entire forest under his control. He has control over the growth and movement of trees, bushes, plants and roots. He can accelerate the growth of branches and vines and manipulate them as though they were appendages to bind and ensnare opponents. He can even finely control moss, creating replicas of his own shape. His control even extends to the poisons that plants can give off.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:He's the real founder of the Shadow Organization.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: He's this to the Shadow Organization, [[spoiler: even to his own brother, the Sousui]].

!!'''Other Members'''
!'''Saigo Enjougi'''
* AxCrazy
* BandageBabe
* ChristmasCake: A particularly crazed example, Saigo thinks any woman younger than her should be killed.
* SinisterScythe: Actually a ''kusarigama'' with a grossly oversized ''kama'' [[note]](note that a normal ''kama'' in fact looks like a miniature scythe)[[/note]] and a spiked counterweight.

[[folder:The Kokubourou]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Sachiko Kojima (Japanese), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (English)
* AffablyEvil: She doesn't really exhibit much animosity—nowhere near as much as the other Kokubourou, that's for sure. [[spoiler:Then we learn that she not only ''lived'' with a human man, but even ''[[InterspeciesRomance fell in love with him]]'', which is what prompted her study of humans.]]
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: She once maintained her appearance as a human [[spoiler:for the man she fell in love with, who was somewhat scared by the appearance of a walking flower in a kimono]].
* BerserkButton: A minor one, since Aihi is largely stoical, but it's unwise to discuss just ''what'' [[spoiler:her relationship with the man from her past was]].
* DissonantSerenity: Enters into this when [[spoiler:unleashing her MindScrew attack on Kaguro]].
* {{Expy}}: Her human form brings [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Rukia]] to mind.
* HealingFactor: As she states during her bout with [[spoiler:Kaguro]], she can [[spoiler:regrow severed vines while in her Ayakashi form]].
* HotScientist
* HumanityIsInfectious: [[spoiler:She gradually gained her interest in humanity from living and falling in love with a human man, which she couldn't quite manifest]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:By about twelve different swords, all running along her torso. [[CruelAndUnusualDeath Brr.]]]]
* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler:Had one in her past, although she [[BerserkButton rather strongly]] denies it]].
* ManEatingPlant: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], actually; according to Kaguro, Aihi hasn't [[spoiler:eaten a human in a long time]].
* MonsterSobStory
* MindScrew: One of the closest descriptions of whatever the hell her ability is in Ayakashi form. Seriously, what was happening there?
* PinocchioSyndrome: [[spoiler:Implied to have this, like the rest of the Kokubourou.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:She helps save Tokine's life, lets her go when she could easily kill her, and then gets murdered by Kaguro ForTheEvulz.]]
* TheStoic
* TokenGoodTeammate
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: She researches humans to understand them better, as well as [[spoiler:her own feelings of attachment to one of them]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KenjiroTsuda (Japanese), Creator/RogerCraigSmith (English)
* {{Bishonen}}
* DragonInChief: Is the Princess' most loyal ally, and thus her second in command. However, because the Princess is so weak, he usually does the dirty work for her.
* ExtremeDoormat
* EvilPlan: He's TheDragon for Hime but it is his scheming that drives the attempted take over of Karasumori. [[spoiler: His goal is using its power to cure Hime and restore her power to what it once was.]]
* EyeScream: Just look at his picture.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Gives a genuine smile as he and the Princess vanish away forever, cementing his UndyingLoyalty to her by showing that he is content with this decision]].
* LackOfEmpathy: He routinely treats Hime, the only being for whom he probably ever felt anything, so coldly, that you would be forgiven for thinking he has some [[EvilPlan sinister plan]] for her, and will discard her the instant she's not needed for it anymore (as he treats his minions). Actually, [[spoiler: Byaku sincerely wishes to heal Hime,]] it's just that he so out of touch with others' emotions, that not only his reaction to [[spoiler: his wife's bout of depression - after he disfigured her in an attempt to extend her life by magic - was calmly helping her to kill herself.]] He also fails to see why anyone might object to it.
* MeaningfulName: "White," appropriate for his hair color. [[spoiler: It also points back to his old identity; the "shiro" in "Shironuma" also means "white."]]
* Really700YearsOld: Though he looks like a man in his early thirties, [[spoiler: He's actually nine years older then his friend, Matsudo who is a peer of Yoshimori's grandpa]].
* TheStoic
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:With the Princess]].
* TranshumanTreachery
* TwoFaced
* UndyingLoyalty: The Princess is probably the only living thing he's ever truly cared about. [[spoiler:After their world begins to crumble and the Princess reaches her final moments, he ultimately chooses to remain by her side and dies with her. His expression as he does so proves that he does not regret this decision]].
* UnholyMatrimony: Implied with the Princess.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NaokoMatsui (Japanese), Creator/StephanieSheh (English)
* BadAssDecay: As the years passed, her power waned to the point that her organization tried to find ways to prolong the collapse of her dimension.
* BigBad: Of Kokubourou. While Kaguro does have a lot of influence over the arc, one forgets that she's the real mastermind of the conquering of Karasumori land.[[spoiler: though it turns out she's not completely evil as Sen states she doesn't have an evil presence]].
* {{Kitsune}}
* OhCrap: When Sen encounters her in the anime, she immediately cringes away from him and whimpers in terror.
* RoyalBrat[=/=]SpoiledBrat: Acts like a spoiled little princess, despite [[Really700YearsOld her age]].
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:With Byaku]].
* UnholyMatrimony: Implied with Byaku.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroakiHirata (Japanese), Creator/TroyBaker (English)
* AxCrazy: [[HumanoidAbomination his true form]] shows that he's out of his mind...All the time.
* BloodKnight: A subtler one than his more boisterous colleague, Gagin, preferring to [[ForTheEvulz mess with others to anger them enough to provide a good fight]]
* BreakingSpeech: Delivers an extremely harsh one to Shishio. He has the inability of having a conversion that doesn't involve [[MindRape messing with the other's head]]. [[spoiler: It fails with Yoshimori because he's too [[IdiotHero dumb]] to understand what he's trying to trying to get him to do.]]
* CaptainErsatz: ''Very'' obviously based on [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Shishio Makoto]]. It doubles as FridgeBrilliance. After his death, Shishio tells his loyal henchmen, Hoji, that he'll conquer hell. [[spoiler: Since there's a long time between Manga/RurouniKenshin and Kekkaishi's timeline, it's possible that he did in fact do that, considering his strength, and was awarded the form of a high-ranked demon, (ignoring the anime version where Kaguro's human origin is as a bug eyed freak who got scared of being caught), and began serving Kokubourou out of boredom. Since no one in his time was really an equal to him, he began to search for the one person who can truly give the "feeling" of having his life on the line, especially since he can [[CurbStompBattle beat most demons on a reflex]].]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Believe it or not. He kills off two of his surviving subordinates when they take Tokine hostage, scolding them for their "lack of aesthetic".
* {{Expy}}: His bandaged form looks remarkably similar to Makoto Shisio from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''.

* WorthyOpponent: Thinks Yoshimori is the one [[spoiler: [[DeathSeeker who can finally give him the "feeling" of the a life-death sitaution]].]]
