Irie JescarDon't involve my partners into a crime. Are you really a hunter!!?
An experienced hunter who initially wants nothing to do with Shiki, Irie decides to join Shiki on his quest to defeat Miogaruna following her discovery that Shiki was her late father's student. However, she firmly refuses to become Shiki's comrade because of her painful past involving her "friends" who she considered her comrades - her "friends" decided to lie about completing a mission in order to get some quick cash, but Irie tells on them because they are comrades; her "friends" are arrested, and because Irie was associated with them, she was expelled from taking the Forbidden Hunter Exam and can never become a Forbidden Hunter as a result. Her friendship with Shiki slowly but surely made her have faith in having comrades once more.

Gurelli JescarA true hunter possesses knowledge... and values their teammates more than anything else!!Shiki's master and Irie's father. He was a source of inspiration for Shiki and the one who gave him his Forbidden Hunter seal. The reason why Shiki strongly desires to defeat Miogaruna is because this was Gurelli's unfinished goal.
