If you want to know more about the characters of X1999, this is the place.It is to be noted that characterization and purpose are often different whether it's the manga, the TV series or the film. If the main trio, the premises and the whole plot in general are grossly the same from one media to another, the support cast often sports notable differences as you will see.As always with Character pages, SPOILERS AHEAD!!
The Hero of the series is a dark-haired teenager whose destiny is to fight for the eventual fate of Earth: either it is destroyed to be reborn without humanity, either it shall live on as it is. In short, he is a stock Messiah.After living his childhood in Tokyo, making friends with Fuma and his sister Kotori, his mother, Toru Magami, towed him away to Okinawa (Right around the time their mother Saya gave birth to the first Shinken and died in the process) so they could live in peace until she decided to end her life so she could postpone the impending disasters that Kamui would face and died in a fire.After coming back to Tokyo, he gradually meets the Dragons of Heaven, fighting with Arashi, Sorata and Mauve Shirt Daisuke, Aoki's nephew. Behaving like a Jerkass at first, he only does so in order to keep people away, knowing beforehand that his fate will be far from all pink, sparkles and flowers. After meeting Princess Hinoto and eventually bonding with his fellow Dragons, he tries to recuperate his Shinken, an Empathic Weapon hidden in the body of Tokiko Magami, his aunt, unbeknownst to everyone.Despite his rather classical characterisation, Kamui still keeps the spotlight to himself due to his own complex personality. His frail and scrawny appearance (perhaps for Yaoi-slash purposes) seems almost a joke in comparison to his crushing responsibilities. Yet, his reactions are pretty realistic and quite akin to the ones a Real Life teenager would display.Tropes associated with Kamui Shiro:
Angst Coma: Right after losing to Fuma and being unable to stop him from horribly killing Kotori.
Break the Cutie: Like many other characters, but even more so for being The Chosen One. To put it on perspective: the sensitive and broken but still determined Kamui that we know? He's the result of all the horrible shit poured on him, leaving him unable to put on his Jerkass Façade anymore.
Heroic BSOD: Upon beholding the deaths of Kotori and Sorata (TV series only), the former causing him to enter an Angst Coma.
Heroic Sacrifice: In the anime where he eventually dies upon creating a protective barrier so to save the world Fuma and his friends will live on.
This arguably counts as Take a Third Option. So Kamui doesn't want to kill Fuuma, yet cannot afford to be defeated and killed in battle? He will let Fuuma injure him... then he'll his life eneegy to create said barrier and entrust Fuuma with his wish to protect the world. And it works.
You Killed My Mother: At first, his purpose was to investigate the reasons behind his mother Tohru's strange death and few else.
Took a Level in Kindness: He becomes a Dragon of Heaven having realized what he wanted to protect those dear to him. After Kotori died and Fuuma had his Face-Heel Turn, he was terribly broken... and once he came back, he bonded properly with the Dragons of Heaven, showing them the kindness he either repressed or didn't know he had in him.
The taller and stronger childhood friend of Kamui is actually destined to be his Evil Twin of sorts, depending on who Kamui chooses to side with.Both Fuma and Kotori, his sister, lived happily in Tokyo and were friends with Kamui until their mother Saya died a horrific death upon giving birth to the first Shinken. Fuma then went to High School and became a famed basketball player. Upon meeting Kamui again, he tries to rekindle with him but, since Kamui wants to protect him, his attempts meet an icy response. After Kamui makes his choice, Fuma makes a major Face-Heel Turn and goes to Kanoe in order to take his place amongst the Dragons of Earth.Tropes associated with Fuma Monou:
Literal Genie: Gives people EXACTLY what they wish for, hence Be Careful What You Wish For. In example, when he kills Nataku in the manga, he explains that he's just doing it because Nataku wanted to die protecting someone important and at the hands of the one he loves; later, he doesn't kill Karen because she was the person Nataku died protecting, thus he wants to honor Nataku's own wish. Similarly, in the anime he absorbs Nataku into himself with a similar reasoning, since Nataku wanted to die for him.
The resident Shrinking Violet is Kamui's childhood friend and who has a (reciprocated) crush on him.Like Fuma, Kotori was scarred for life upon watching the gory death of her mother. However, unlike Fuma and Kamui, she doesn't fight physically. Psychologically/physically fragile and pretty much defenseless, Kotori lives her life quietly and peacefully in the family shrine, but she snaps and breaksdown upon seeing the birth of the second Shinken out of Tokiko Magami's body.As foreseen by Hinoto and Kanoe she ends up being the wedge between Kamui and Fuma, and her brother eventually captures, crucifies, kills and dismembers her in front of Kamui. (In the anime, she's "only" crucified and killed). Her soul is then collected by Kakyou, who comforts her in her last moments before going to Heaven; her body is buried in the CLAMP Campus by the Dragons of Heaven.Tropes associated with Kotori Monou:
The Ophelia: She loses her mind after seeing the horrific birth of the second Shinken. Sorta subverted in the anime series: She does break down and collapses, but spends almost all the time until her death pulling her Dream Weaver stunts and remains mostly sane as she does so.
Person of Holding: Only in The Movie. She has one of the Shinkens inside her body, and Fuuma murders her via pulling it out of the poor girl's stomach with his bare hands. In front of Kamui, Hinoto, Arashi and Sorata, who had just tried to help her run away.
The tall, upbeat, goofyLancer of the Dragons of Heaven talks with a distinctive Kansai accent.Despite being taken from his parents at an early age and destined to die for the woman he loves, he constantly acts friendly, generous and protective, especially towards Kamui and his initially unresponsive crush, Arashi. Raised and trained by Buddhist monks in the Koya shrine, he primarily uses thunder and light-based attacks as well as some holy magic.He eventually meets his fate in both the anime and the film. The manga also hints a similar end for him.Tropes associated with Sorata Arisugawa:
The Big Guy: in the Dragons of Heaven group as a whole.
Bi the Way: It is made pretty obvious that Arashi is his one true love and he also comments on Kotori's cuteness in the manga, but he gets pretty flirty with Kamui in the early chapters of the manga. He even comments while Kamui and Arashi are on either side of him how grateful he is to be between "two beauties".
Chivalrous Pervert: Flirty, kinda irresponsible, has a bit of a roving eye for ladies (and Kamui). But he's also a loyal friend and an effective fighter, and he genuinely cares for everyone around him and specially his dear Arashi.
Dead Star Walking: Movie and TV series. He hasn't died yet in the manga, but has some of the biggest death flags around him.
Death by Sex: In the anime series, he dies few after he and Arashi do it. In the manga he hasn't died... still.
The Idiot from Osaka: Toyed with. He is brash, sometimes dorky and considered to be kinda crass sometimes, but people don't seem to think he's actively stupid. Not to mention the fact that he's a powerful fighter capable of casting quite powerful holy spells (like a shikigami) mean that he's laidback and cheery, but very capable of being serious when needed.
Love at First Sight: He falls head over heels for Arashi upon meeting her. More exactly, he decides that if he is destined to die for the sake of a woman, it better be for a pretty one; he's impressed by Arashi's Aloof Dark-Haired Girl looks, decides she should be the one and approaches her, and as the story progresses they fall in love for real.
Nice Guy: And this is one of the reasons Arashi falls for him.
Obfuscating Stupidity: Many times in battle. You wouldn't think that this super happy guy is a powerhouse in battle? You're wrong.
Miko: And from Ise Jingun, one of the most famous shrines in the whole country.
Orphan's Ordeal: Her early childhood was tough to say the least, as after her parents's early deaths, she spent a while as a Street Urchin until the Ise priestesses found her and took her to the shrine.
Virgin Power: In the manga, she loses her powers upon making love with Sorata. It should be noted that her Missing Mom, also a Miko from Isse Jingun, went through the same process after she ran away from Ise with Arashi's father (a university student) and lost her virginity to him.
Like his Arch-Nemesis, Seishirou Sakurazuka, he hails from another CLAMP work: Tokyo Babylon where his origins are explained with more details. Appearing as a stock Bishōnen, he mourns his dead sister Hokuto, who was killed by Seishirou.Unlike the other Dragons of Heaven, he is rather reluctant to join the group and mostly goes on his own story arc that is actually the end of the one he started during Tokyo Babylon. Nevertheless, he significantly helped out during Kamui's massive Angst Coma and succeeded in healing his soul and bringing him back, becoming a sort-of Big Brother Mentor to him from then on. His final showdown with Seishirou Sakurazuka leads to tons of Ho Yay and Foe Yay. In battle, he uses a mix of soul magic and arcana that he channels in special paper cards.His end is very different, depending on the media. In the Manga, he inherits the powers and responsibility of the Sakurazukamori; in the film both die and in the TV-series their relationship is established and he ends up in a catatonic state for having killed his lover, but he ultimately gets better.Tropes associated with Subaru Sumeragi
Angst Coma: In the anime, he falls into this few after killing Seishirou. With some prodding from Hokuto's soul, he wakes up right before Kamui and Fuuma's final duel.
Psychic Nosebleed: Has one when he drives into Kamui's mind to help him return to consciousness; being hit with a psychic backlash coming from Kamui's bitter memories causes Subaru to bleed from his ears.
Smoking Is Cool: Subverted: When 'Seishirou' does it, it's cool. When Subaru does it, he gets lectured about the health risks — by Seishirou himself, nonetheless.
A devoted Catholic call-girl, Karen appears sporadically at first before taking a more active role in the plot. She appears as a redhead bombshell who always smiles and supports the Dragons of the Heaven as much as she can.Gifted with pyrotechnics, she is usually aloof towards everyone despite her benevolent disposition and her sensitivity. She forms an unrequited crush on Seiichiro Aoki and never acts on it out of respect for his wife Shimako and child Yuuka.In the anime she eventually sacrifices herself to save Seiichiro from Yuto but dying with their enemy, while she still lives on in the manga, and in the movie she also pulls a Taking You Withme — but with Shougo Asagi instead.Tropes associated with Karen Kasumi:
Taking You with Me: With Yuto in the TV series. With Shogo in the film. In the first case it looked like the trope would be averted with Yuuto barely escaping and Karen dying next to Aoki... but it was ultimately played straight, with Yuuto perishing soon after his escape.
Unrequited Love: Towards Aoki, who cares for her greatly but not in that way.
A petite, fresh and naive 14 years-old girl that often lightens up the mood and is never seen without her spirit dog, Inuki, that is invisible to regular humans.Bullied all her childhood long because no one could see her dog but her, she has sworn to never accept a man who couldn't see her pet. Ironically, the first man to see Inuki is none other than a Dragon of Earth: Shiryu Kusanagi. She immediately falls for him. She can turn Inuki into a sword when in battle and her pet will do anything to protect her. Upon battling Satsuki Yatoji in the anime, she loses her dog and gets horribly depressed. After getting a Hannibal Lecture from Fuma and Satsuki, she is eventually able to revive Inuki while Fuma steps down.In the film, she dies along with Yuto and Kusanagi, in Kamui's arms. In the anime, both Kusanagi and her survive after Kusanagi's Heel-Face Turn and it is hinted that they remain together.Tropes associated with Yuzuriha Nekoi:
Joshikousei: Subverted. Despite being involved with an older guy, her schoolgirl status, although obvious, is never brought up as part of why he likes her, nor is it ever alluded to otherwise in story.
Meaningful Name: An invoked subversion: the "neko" in "Nekoi" means "cat," and her family uses it deliberately to obfuscate their affiliation with dog spirits.
Magical Girl: Variation. She has all the characteristics but doesn't use actual magic.
The least seen member of the Dragons of Heaven, thirty-something Seiichiro Aoki is the oldest of them. Married with a child, he is also a Wind Master who tutored his nephew Daisuke Saiki.After discreetly and amiably divorcing his wife Shimako in order to protect her and their child Yuuka from the disaster of the upcoming battles, he works as a journalist and manga editor in his daily life. He bounds specifically with Karen upon interviewing her for a manga and comes to help her when she goes in his stead to battle Yuto Kigai, alas to no avail. He uses his power over wind in battle.He appears as a tall, handsome brown-haired man in his mid-30's with glasses. Does that physical description look familiar? In the movie he dies in a Taking You with Me fashion alongside Nataku, but he's still alive in other media.

A very mannerly and well-groomed blond Public Service clerk, Yuto is one of the most amoraland cynical of the Dragons of Earth. Not much is known about him except that he is pretty happy to work for the Dragons of Earth. Additionally, he playfully flirts with his protegee Satsuki and sleeps regularly with Kanoe. In battle, he uses a long rope with a dagger at the tip that he uses like a whip.His end is pretty similar in each of the three media. And none of them are pretty. (Except the manga, that is. For now, at least...)Tropes associated with Yuto Kigai:
Affably Evil: Very well-mannered and proper- one of the nicest, friendliest people you have ever met, yet almost completely amoral.
Voiced by: Tōru Furusawa (JP, film and CD dramas), Otoya Kawano (JP, TV series), Garrick Hagon (EN, film), Dave Mallow (EN, TV series)
Along with Subaru, he hails from Tokyo Babylon and plays the end of his own story in X1999. A one-eyed Bishōnen and Badass in a Nice Suit, seldom seen without his Cool Shades, he and Subaru are established Yaoi Guys.Like Subaru, Seishirou is not actually close to his fellows and pretty much follows his own path. However, his role in the awakening of Kamui and Fuma was determinant. He is also the murderer of Hokuto Sumeragi, Subaru's sister and holds an interesting relationship with his mom, Setsuka. He mostly takes on Subaru, his former lover and current Arch-Nemesis, and uses an evil version of his powers which often includes Cherry Blossoms.He dies telling Subaru his true feelings for him. Or so we suspect.Tropes associated with Seishirou Sakurazuka:
Oedipus Complex: His relationship with his mom, especially in the CD dramas. No evidence about sexual encounters, thankfully, but the Sub Text is heavy. And he DID kiss her on the lips when he killed her, in the manga.
Self-Made Orphan: Apparently standard practice in his family, considering the Sakurazukamori stuff. More exactly, Setsuka says that the Sakurazukamori can only be killed by the person they love the most, and who will become the Sakurazukamori in their place; in Setsuka's case, this person was Seishirou, so...
A nerdy-looking Emotionless Girl, highschool/college-aged Satsuki is the youngest of all the Dragons of Earth and the only female of the group aside of Kanoe. She always looks serious and is absolutely uninterested by the mundane world, finding solace only with her computers.Born in a very wealthy family, she manifested her powers at anearly age and can connect herself directly to computers by letting them invade her body with their cables. She spends most of her time connected to her giant PC, the Beast, that she got from Kanoe and that stripped her from the last remnants of interest in humans. She thoroughly lectures Yuzuriha upon battling her and kills her spirit dog when she cannot give her a satisfactory answer. She also develops feelings for Yuto who is amused by her crush, even though he openly sleeps with their shared boss Kanoe and doesn't really encourage her advances. This drives the Beast mad with envy. She uses the Beast for reconnaissance purposes and uses him to control electric cables as offensive weapons.In the movie and anime, Satsuki dies upon trying to help Yuto (against Fuuma in the first, against Seiichiro and Karen in the second), impaled by the many cables of the Beast who refuses to lose her to anyone.Tropes associated with Satsuki Yatoji:
All Love Is Unrequited: The closest to affection that she ever seems to feel is for Yuto, who's much older and seems to treat her as a stand in for his sister Tomoe.
Ambiguous Disorder: She vastly prefers computers over interacting with other people, and seems to be annoyed when people try to interact with her. She also has a distinct Lack of Empathy as shown by her interactions with Yuzuriha. Asperger's?
Dark Action Girl: Satsuki doesn't fight with her hands and legs, but she can control massive cables VERY effectively if she wishes to do so. I.e., in The Movie she uses said cables to gravely injure Sorata during her fight against him and Arashi.
Emotionless Girl: Due to her complete disinterest towards human beings as a whole.
A genderless, cybernetic clone of the dead granddaughter of a local scientist, Nataku has pretty much no personality other than that of a lost child. Or so we're led to believe. He appears as your usual white-haired Bishōnen.He is first seen as being sustained in a glass chamber. After heading out to steal the Shinken from Kyogo Monou, he eventually joins the Dragons of Earth. Upon seeing just how much Fuma ressembles his father (the son of his creator), he immediately takes him as a father figure and loves him unconditionally. He fights several times against Kamui, Yuzuriha and a switched Kusanagi, and in the manga he also fights Karen and Aoki. He mainly uses fabric tendrils in battle.He eventually dies upon merging with Fuma and becoming part of him to heal him from the damage done by Sorata upon defending Arashi, in the anime. He and Aoki kill each other in battle in the film, and in the manga he dies at Fuma's hands while shielding Karen - partially because he interpretes His Only Wish as partly dying by Fuuma's own hand ("the hand of the person he loves the most aka 'his father figure") and partly protecting Karen ("the person most important to him aka his mother figure", due to Nataku and Karen having sorta bonded right before his death.)Tropes associated with Nataku:
What Is This Thing You Call Love?: In the manga, it turns out he isn't that emotionless. Specially during his fight/talk with Karen, where she listens to his backstory and tells him that yes, he has a heart, and he should follow it. This leads Nataku to shield Karen from Fuuma — at the cost of his own life; as said above, Fuuma interprets a part of Nataku's wish as "to die at his hands."
The bulky, towering and Badass Air Force agent is actually a Technical Pacifist who is inherently linked with the spirit of Earth. His characterisation is the most uneven between all three media of X1999.In both the anime and manga, he is actually the least aggressive and asocial of all the Dragons of Earth. He is the most reluctant to participate in the end of the world but joins in regardless even though he doesn't share his views with everyone else. His enemy Yuzuriha Nekoi develops romantic feelings for him.In the anime, he protects Yuzuriha from his fellows various times and ultimately switches side. In the manga, she confesses to him, and he accepts her feelings, though he doesn't openly return them.In the film, he is the most aggressive and violent of all and is nothing more than a Blood Knight who simply wants to kill the Dragons of Heaven. His relationship with Yuzuriha doesn't exist. He ends up dying bloodily at the hands of the recently awakened Fuuma.In battle, he mostly uses brute force and is able to shatter the ground open with one punch.Tropes associated with Kusanagi Shiyu:
Bruiser with a Soft Center: Although the physically strongest of the Seven Angels, even more than Fuma himself, as well as being able to shatter the ground open with one punch, he is a very kind-hearted man indeed.
A frail and comatose guy that seldom comes to his senses in the real world and spends most of his time in Comaland where he dreams about the future, a constant sad look on his face. A dreamseer like Hinoto, he was sequestrated for a long time by ill-intentioned politicians.During one of his dreams, he meets Hokuto, Subaru's twin sister and falls in love with her. Upon seeing her eventual fate in his dreams, in the anime he breaks out of his coma and tries to save her but is shot by his jailers and put in a never ending coma. He also befriends Kotori in the dream space, comforting her in her last minutes of life, possessing her fatally injured body so she won't be in pain, and then watching her soul go off to Heaven)In the manga, he is convinced to join the Dragons of Earth by Fuma after trying to prevent the murder of Kotori. In the anime, Fuma coerces him to manipulate Hinoto's dreams so as to mislead her predictions. But he eventually turns on Fuma on the urgings of Kotori and Hokuto. He eventually dies peacefully in his sleep and leaves for Heaven with his beloved Hokuto.Tropes associated with Kakyo Kuzuki:
Ascended Extra: A roundabout example. In the manga he's among the last Dragons of Earth to appear, so much that The Movie had Shougo to fill in the blanks. In the anime, however, he is both the narrator andThe Protagonist of the OAV, telling the viewers how his life has been and how he sees the world.
Ill Boy: Was already sickly, then was in a coma for years.
Inter Generational Friendship: Strikes one with Kotori, in the dream space. He goes as far as possessing her body briefly as she dies to take her horrifying physical pain into himself and have some words with Fuuma, and then he says goodbye to her in the dream scape as she goes to Heaven, becoming the depositary of her Famous Last Words and a tender kiss on the cheek.
Lonely Rich Kid: Born in a very rich and traditional family, and also kept in isolation by corrupt politicians due to his bad health and enormous dream seeing powers. Even worse in the OAV, when for the first time ever he rebels against the Gilded Cage he's locked in to try dissuading Hokuto from deploying her Thanatos Gambit... but he gets shot in the back and can barely witness her death at the hands of Seishirou. And from then on, he's comatose.
Man in White: Wears white robes in the real world, and dresses in a white suit when in the dream space.
A blind and crippled dreamseer, she is actually in charge of the whole political life of Tokyo and can see the future in her dreams. She appears as an albinoWoman in White that possesses a wide range of psychic abilities and some power over Shikigami magic.Although Hinoto has never once failed in her predictions, she was initially unable to determine the eventual path Kamui would take, so she tried to influence him to side with the Dragons of Heaven but Kanoe informed Kamui about his possibility to choose between the two. She functions mainly as the Dragons of Heaven's Mission Control and is able to use spells to see outside her hidden place. She also constantly fighting her Enemy Within her Dark Self, that wishes to live on as a dreamseer and manipulates the group in order to ensure the world is destroyed in the end.In the manga, Hinoto is confronted directly by Sorata about her actions, yet the outcome is (still) not clear. In the TV-series, she commits suicide in order to stop her Dark Self from interfering with the fate of the Seven Seals. In the film, Hinoto says goodbye to Kamui and teleports him to the Tokyo Tower so he can duel Fuma, then lets herself die as the Diet building collapses around her, Kanoe's lifeless body in her arms.Tropes associated with Hinoto:
Driven to Suicide: In the film, she could've escaped from the collapsing Diet Building but chooses to not do so, saving Kamui's life and entrusting him with the rest of the Dragons of the Heaven's mission before she's crushed to death by the rubble falling on her, holding Kanoe's lifeless body in her arms.
Waif Prophet: Blind, dead, mute, and crippled... Yes all of it.

The Seven Angels's counterpart to Hinoto is actually her younger sister. She is the one responsible for bringing all of the Dragons of Earth together and helps them in their mission by providing them with headquarters and material. She is a tall, dark-haired Femme Fatale with the customary long nails to hint at her evil, and she works as the head secretary of the Diet (Japanese Congress).Although being born in the same family as Hinoto, Kanoe isn't gifted with the power of dreamseeing but can enter the dreams of others. Hence, she was always treated as less important than her sister. She is mostly flirtatious and Affably Evil towards her companions; she has an open affair with Yuto and flirts occasionally with Satsuki. Despite claiming to hate Hinoto, her sister's death seems to affect her all the same.In the film, Fuma kills her upon entering the Final Battle, and she dies in a devastated Hinoto's arms while explaining her reasons.. In the TV series, she lives on and mourns her sister. In the manga, she is killed by Hinoto.Tropes associated with Kanoe:
Bi the Way: Sleeps with Yuuto, flirts with Satsuki, is kinda handsy with both Monous in The Movie... yet, to our knowledge, her evil and/or morally grey actions aren't tied to her bisexuality so she doesn't count as Depraved Bisexual.
Dream Weaver <- -> Dream Walker: Her level of power depends on the continuity. In some, she's almost as powerful as Hinoto (Dream Weaver); in others, she can only enter the dreams of others but not influence or see too much beyond (Dream Walker)
Kamui's mother and maternal aunt. They were membresses of the Magami clan, a once powerful family that is shrouded in mystery. Tohru left the Magami clan (including a pre-teen Tokiko) few after her highschool graduation, gave birth to Kamui, was close to the Monou family and left to Okinawa at some point; meanwhile, Tokiko balanced her work as a nurse with some spiritual deals. Tohru's death is the trigger for Kamui's return to Tokyo, as he believes she was murdered...Tropes associated with Tohru and Tokiko:
Teen Pregnancy: Possibly. Tohru left her family right after graduating from highschool (and when Tokiko was in junior-high).; Tokiko's memories of the last time they saw each other imply that Tohru either was already pregnant with Kamui or knew she'd have him soon.
Yamato Nadeshiko: Tohru, a devoted single mother who goes for the cold steel without hesitation. Also, both of her seiyuu (Masako Ikeda and Kikuko Inoue) are rather famous for voicing this kind of character.
Fuuma and Kotori's parents, who own and handle the Tokagushi Shinto shrine. Despite looking Happily Married, they actually got together to fulfill their destinies rather than for romantic love, and the reasonings behind said destinies are not exactly simple either.Tropes associated with Kyogo and Saya:
Famous Last Words: Kyougo tried to use his own to tell Fuuma that he was the other Kamui, but couldn't finish.
Kyougo: " Fuuma, you... you are Kamui's..."
Gorn: How Saya died, by being dismembered while "giving birth" to the Shinken. In the manga, it happens in the backyard of the shrine; in the anime, it's during an urgent surgery.
Heroic Sacrifice: Saya, specially in the manga. She knew that Tohru was destined to have the Shinken inside, but willingly took her place so Kamui wouldn't be left fully orphaned and to show her love for her.
Hide Your Lesbians: Saya was in love with Tohru. She married Kyougo to fulfill her destiny. Thethreeknew it, and Saya even apologized to Kyougo for it since he did genuinely love her but she simply couldn't love him back in the same way - right before she died. Tohru then left for Okinawa with little Kamui on tow because she felt so guilty that she couldn't face the Monous afterwards.
Romantic Runner-Up: Kyougo is a rather odd version, as he technically did marry the woman he loved but remained as this and as her Unlucky Childhood Friend since she was in love with someone else and he was very aware of what was going on. He never held any bad feelings about it as far as we know.
A playful, sarcastic highschooler who appears only in the movie, filling Kakyou's place as his character hadn't even really been created. He also had Yuuto's water-based powers, since Yuuto had never used them by that point.Tropes associated with Shougo Asagi:
BadassBlood Knight: Is very aware of his powers' destructive potential and uses it to his full advantage.
Canon Foreigner: Was specially created for the animated film, since Kakyou had not appeared in the manga by that point and Yuuto's water-control powers had still not been revealed/written either.
Dream Walker: Hokuto can enter other people's dreams, but she can't influence them and it's hinted that she can only do it when she herself is asleep. (Unlike Hinoto, who can freely do so.) That's actually how she met Kakyou, via accidentally stepping into his dream space at night...
Thanatos Gambit: Her Heroic Sacrifice was actually a desperate gambit from her, to both save Subaru's life and give Seishirou a Last-Second Chance. It backfired horribly — but in the TV series, it soooooorta worked since Subaru ultimately survived.
The Unfavorite: Subverted. She was the eldest twin, but was denied to become the head of the family due to her lack of powers - yet she was not bitter about it and helped Subaru as much as she could.
The nephew of Seiichirou Aoki, with similar wind powers. He at first distrusts Kamui a lot due to his attitude and can't accept him as The Hero, but he slowly warms up to him. Daisuke is also very, VERY fiercely protective of Hinoto, and seems to have romantic feelings for her.Tropes associated with Daisuke Saiki:
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: If you cross him, he'll be a real Jerk Ass. But if you prove to be a good person, he'll be much nicer. And if you do the first and then the latter, he'll aknowledge it rather humbly.
Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: His wish is to die protecting his beloved Princess Hinoto. Guess what happens when he meets Fuuma...?
Voiced by: Junko Sakuma (JP)
Seishirou's creepy, soft-spoken, and very beautiful mother. Also the previous Sakurazukamori, whom Seishirou killed to get the title and continue the tradition.Tropes associated with Setsuka Sakurazuka:
The Ophelia: She often talks about things that look like nosense, then counteracts with something quite unsettling and does so smiling. See the quotes under Flower Motifs to have an idea.
Parental Incest: As mentioned, her relationship with Seishirou gives a strong vibe of this. She does say he's the only person she's ever come to care for and love, is implied to have given him a kiss on the lips upon meeting and in the manga, when she dies at Sei's hand by her own request, they share a Last Kiss.
Posthumous Character: Basically, the reason why Sei is the way he is. Even after dying many years ago, when Seishirou was in high school.
Trickster Mentor: To Seishirou. She's always playful and creepily sweet to him, specially in the CD dramas.
Yamato Nadeshiko: A beautiful, soft spoken and dark-haired woman whose hobbies include Ikebana and wears really pretty kimonos. Her devotion to the murderous family business is complete, and it makes her extraordinarily creepy.
