    • Tsugumi = Thrush
    • Kamome = Seagull
    • Tsubame = Swallow

Hibari's classmate who is her best friend. She is intelligent, mature, and even comes from a wealthy family. Her Pata-Pi is Francesca, an equally intelligent multitasker whom Suzume improves to be "the best." It transforms into the Diva Hestia.


  • Alliterative Name: Suzume Sakurajosui.
  • Attention Whore: She's always boasting about having the best Pata-Pi and loves being the center of attention. She even briefly antagonizes Tsubame because everyone pays attention to her for being a New Transfer Student. Justified because her father was never at home and no one valued her unless she proved her worth.
  • Childhood Friends: She has been friends with Hibari since they were babies.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: A friendship example. Hibari has been Suzume's closest friend since kindergarten, so she feels pushed aside and angry when Hibari becomes friends with Tsugumi. She's accepting of Hibari and Tsubame's close friendship later on.

  • Keigo: Her speech is extremely polite and formal at all times.
  • The Lancer
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Her father is almost always too busy with work to see her, her older sisters also appear to ignore her, and her Only Friend for most of her life was Hibari.
  • Ojou: She's a very polite and proper rich girl who lives in a mansion so big that she gets lost in it without her Pata-Pi despite it having been her home all her life.
  • Token Rich Student: Despite being the daughter of a very wealthy family, Suzume attends the same ordinary public school as the rest of the main cast.
  • Town Girls: The Femme to Hibari's Neither and Tsugumi's Butch.
  • Verbal Tic: She always ends her sentences with "de gozaimasu desu wa".

    Tsugumi Higashijuujou 
Voiced by: Yuu Asakawa (JP), Kira Vincent-Davis (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/higashijuujou_tsugumi.jpg

A girl with an aggressive attitude. She has a mixed martial arts and professional wrestling background, but she aspires to be a singing star, just like her idol, Hatoko Daikan'yama. Her Pata-Pi is Tetsuro or Tetsu for short, an equally aggressive one who has built-in microphones whenever she has the urge to sing, and a camera. It transforms into the Diva Athena.


  • Action Girl
  • Bifauxnen: She makes for a cute-looking boy when disguised as Hibari's fake boyfriend.
  • The Big Gal: She's the toughest girl in the Cyber Team and the only one who has martial arts training.

  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Her proper debut has her defeating homunculi bare-handed.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Her parents often fight each other, and fight their own daughter.
  • Idol Singer: Wants to be this.
  • Leader Wannabe: She's the self-proclaimed leader of the Cyber Team, putting her at odds with Suzume.
  • Martial Arts Headband: She knows mixed martial arts and always wears an orange headband around her head.
  • Modesty Shorts: She wears bicycle shorts under the skirt of her school uniform.
  • Ore Onna: She uses the aggressive-masculine pronoun of "ore" to refer to herself.
  • Rapunzel Hair: She has very long hair that reaches past her hips, which is a trait that shows she's much girlier than she lets on.
  • Sobriquet Sex Switch: When posing as Hibari's fake boyfriend, Tsugumi calls herself "Mitsugu Higashiyamato".
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Tsugumi is by all accounts your typical rough and tumble tomboy who's heavily into sports, competition, and rough play, and is much louder than the other girls. She also comes from a heavily martial arts background, to which she is very adept and very proud of. However, she dreams with becoming an Idol Singer and has posters of a pop diva plastered all over her walls, and practically fangasmed at the idea of being on stage with the same pop diva as result of winning a contest, even going so far to have her imagination imagine a scenario where the pop diva loves the music SO much that she brings Tsugumi on as a duet partner for the shows. She also seems admittedly embarrassed to have anyone know about it.
  • Tomboyish Voice: She's a tomboyish martial artist who has a low, raspy voice to match her masculine speech patterns. Her voice turns higher when she lets out her secret love for idols.
  • Town Girls: The Butch to Hibari's Neither and Suzume's Femme.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She butt heads with Suzume when they first form the Cyber Team because both are very stubborn and bossy. Over the course of episodes, they have accepted each other as friends.

    Kamome Sengakuji 
Voiced by: Miki Nagasawa (JP), Allison Keith (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sengakuji_kamome.jpg

A girl from Osaka who aspires for money and would do anything for it, though she has hidden depths and is smarter than she appears. She is the only girl to know about the Pati-Pis transforming without a demonstration, as she gained information from her grandfather. Her Pata-Pi is Billiken, a futuristic version of a piggy bank and counting machine. It transforms into the Diva Amphitrite.


  • A-Cup Angst: She has the smallest bust of the team (at least until Tsubame comes along) and she's not happy about this at all. Especially because this makes the target of Uzura's affection, who has a fetish with flat-chested girls. Fortunately for her, her chest finally develops in the movie.
  • Accent Adaptation: The English dub gave her a Southern accent as a substitute for her Kansai Regional Accent in the original Japanese.
  • Demoted to Extra: She gets much less screentime than the rest of the main group in the movie. She only comes back to partake in the climax.
  • Fake Boobs: She wants to have bigger breasts for Gold Digger reasons and consequently stuffs her bra to appear bustier than she really is.
  • Fanservice Pack: She doesn't need to wear breast pads anymore in the movie since her chest grew a lot since the end of the anime.
  • The Idiot from Osaka: She's actually quite smart, but exemplifies the stereotype otherwise.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be a greedy and self-centered person, with little brain-to-mouth filter, but she's also fair and honorable.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: As a native of Osaka, Kamome speaks in the dialect of the region.
  • Leitmotif: Osaka Musume, a smooth jazzy theme that sounds every time she appears or plots a money scheme.
  • Money Fetish: Kamome often takes on numerous jobs to accumulate the money she needs, and sometimes she will resort to con people or show her panties in exchange for money. It's later revealed it's to buy back the house that her mother lost due to debts. By the time of the movie, she succesfully bought the house back, but still exorts money because she's used to it.
  • New Transfer Student: She arrives at Akihabara from Osaka in Episode 7 and joins the same junior high as the rest of the Cyber Team.
  • Parent with New Paramour: Her parents are divorced and her mother remarried. Kamome's stepfather is actually very kind to her in the only scene he appears, but she refuses to acknowledge him as her father. She pretends she does for her mother's sake, though.
  • Prefers Proper Names: She calls her Diva Amphitrite when the other girls generally call them by their Pata-Pi names. She breaks this in the finale, calling it Billiken.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She's perfectly fine with letting men peep at her panties and ogle at her when she's wearing a swimsuit, so long as they pay her of course.
  • Skewed Priorities: After a year, Crane has a change of heart and gives the girls their Pata-Pis back. What's Kamome's first reaction? Check if Billiken still has money inside (since she also used him as a piggy bank) and freak out upon realizing he's empty.

    Tsubame Otori 
Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara (JP), Hilary Haag (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/otori_tsubame.png

A mostly stoic girl with a very twisted view on friendship and no concept of family. Brought up by Cigogne as a special catalyst for the return of the Primum Mobile, she is isolated from society all this while. Hibari befriends her and will later either straighten or change those views. Her Pata-Pi is Petit-Ange, who is pink-colored and not very bright. It transforms into the Diva Erinnus.


  • Artificial Human: She's one of the artificially created humans based on Crane that Christian and Cigogne created to use as tools in their plan to bring Crane back to Earth.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: She eventually stops being an enemy and joins the Cyber Team because Hibari and her parents are the first people who have cared about her and treated her kindly.
  • Broken Bird: She acts cold and doesn't understand the concept of compassion because no one has ever treated her with love. Beneath that emotionless front, Tsubame is just a very lonely girl who craves to be loved.
  • Cloning Blues: Because she's a clone, the man who raised her never treated her like a daughter and barely acknowledged her as a human. She never knew the love and warmth of a family, causing her to be overwhelmed by Hibari's family readily welcoming her into their home.
  • Creepy Child: She's an unnervingly stoic and quiet 13-year-old girl. She also has her Pata-Pi "play" with other Pata-Pis by brutalizing them, including normal Pata-Pis that don't turn into Divas.
  • Cry Cute: It's really moving to see Tsubame coming out of her Emotionless Girl shell by crying during the most emotional moments in the last episodes.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She grew up isolated and deprived of any source of affection, which resulted in the Emotionless Girl she is in her first appearances.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Her main element is darkness, wears black clothes and while she sarts out as an antagonist, she eventually does a Heel–Face Turn and joins the team and still kept her black attire.
  • Dark Magical Girl: She curbstomps the Cyber Team in her very introduction and remains as a dark, solitary character until Hibari insists on befriending her. This happens to be Tsubame's first contact with the concepts of friendship and family, whose incomprehension causes her a Villainous BSoD, but Hibari's kindness straightens the trouble and allows her doing her much needed Heel–Face Turn.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: When she's introduced, Tsubame is a callous Emotionless Girl who ignores Hibari's attempts to befriend her and only cares to prove how powerful her Diva is compared to the Cyber Team. Once Hibari befriends her and they become adopted sisters, Tsubame becomes able to smile and show she cares about others.
  • Emotionless Girl: She shows little to no emotion until near the end of the anime.
  • Friendless Background: Growing up, the only constant company she ever had was her Pata-Pi, Petit-Ange, that she only considers a tool.
  • Happily Adopted: Near the end of the anime, Tsubame is accepted as a second daughter in Hibari's family. This is Tsubame's ultimate happy ending since she finally has what she always wanted; a family that loves her.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She's an underling of Rosenkreuz in her first appearances and uses her Diva to brutally attack the Cyber Team's Divas. In Episodes 20-21, Tsubame switches sides and officially joins the Cyber Team thanks to Hibari befriending her.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: After she experiences a loving family environment for the first time with Hibari's family, Tsubame realizes what she always wanted was to have a home with people who care for her.
  • Inconsistent Coloring: In the anime, her hair color can be depicted as very light pink, pink with white highlights, or white with pink shading depending on the scene. The movie changes her hair to light lavender. That's likely because the movie was animated by Production I.G instead of Ashi Productions.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Tsubame's appearance as the fifth Anima Mundi with the black Diva that can give a Curb-Stomp Battle to all the other Divas marks the point the series takes a more serious tone.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Her childhood memories are all of her completely alone and neglected at Cigogne's castle in France.
  • Mega Twintails: Each of her pigtails is equivalent to the size of her head.
  • Ms. Exposition: She provides exposition about Rosenkreuz's devices and weapons after joining the Cyber Team. She doesn't really know about the Divas, though.
  • New Transfer Student: She joins Hibari's class as a transfer student in Episode 13.
  • No Social Skills: A lot of her unsettling and antisocial behavior is the result of being raised without any real human contact other than her distant guardian.
  • Older Than She Looks: Many remark on how she looks like an elementary school student despite being a junior high student like the other girls in the Cyber Team.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: Like Takashi, Tsubame is a clone of Crane, expect she was made a girl for some reason.
  • The Quiet One: She usually remains unsettlingly quiet.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The cool and reserved Blue Oni to Hibari's sentimental and bubbly Red Oni.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: A pink-haired, pale-skinned young girl with an eerily stoic and quiet behavior who is actually a clone and eventually warms up thanks to the main character. Bonus points for both Rei and Tsubame being voiced by Megumi Hayashibara.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Tsubame becomes Hibari's adopted sister at the end of the anime. While she shows a bit more emotion than before, Tsubame is still a very calm and reserved girl, in contrast to the loud and energetic Hibari.
  • Sixth Ranger: She's the last to join the Cyber Team after a rough start with her being on the enemy side at first.
  • Social Darwinist: Cigogne taught her that only the strong can survive in this cruel world and the weak will be crushed and made disappear, so Tsubame always believed she needed to be strong for her own sake. After becoming friends with Hibari, Tsubame wants to be strong for the sake of protecting others.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: At first glance, Tsubame is aloof, mean, and ruthless. Later, it's revealed she acts the way she does because her guardian never showed her love and drilled into her head that she needed to become strong if she didn't want to disappear. When she sees what a loving and happy family Hibari has, Tsubame breaks down crying as she now sees how sad and lonely her life is.
  • The Stoic: Her facial expression remains the same cold and distant gaze nearly all the time.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She's very cold, quiet, and unsociable, but she just doesn't know how to express herself because of the unloving environment she was raised in. The moment Hibari and her parents break through her shield by welcoming her into their home, Tsubame reveals herself as a sweet, caring, and considerate girl.
  • Token Mini-Moe: She's the shortest and most flat-chested of the Anima Mundi girls, looking like a kid instead of a preteen.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: After having dinner with Hibari's family, hotcakes become Tsubame's favorite food.
  • Tyke Bomb: Unlike the other Anima Mundi, Tsubame was brought by Cigogne as Rosenkreutz's enforcer to have her Diva attack those of the Cyber Team and further progress their awakening.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: She's puzzled at the concept of love, which makes it shocking for her to see a loving family like Hibari's.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pale pink, nearly white.

    Washuu Ryuugasaki 
Voiced by: Hirotaka Suzuoki (JP), John Gremillion (EN)

The shady and mysterious principal who seems to watch over the girls and their Pata-Pis and knows everything about them.


  • Big Bad Wannabe: He's the immortal leader of his world's version of The Illuminati, plans to rule the world after making Crane return to Earth, and he looks more than capable of making it possible. That is until it's revealed that Crane is the true mastermind behind everything and Washuu was nothing but another pawn in Crane's big plan to find his chosen Anima Mundi.
  • Godhood Seeker: His ultimate goal is reuniting with Crane so both can combine their geniuses and become "gods" who can control humanity and create world peace.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: Until the final episodes, we have no idea of what he's trying to do by making the girls summon the Divas to fight Takashi's minions.
  • I Need You Stronger: He's having Takashi attack the Cyber Team so the Divas and the girls' connections to them become powerful enough to wake Crane from his suspended animation at his space castle.
  • Karmic Death: He abandons Takashi once he's no longer useful to him and turns Cigogne into an Apostolus so he can reunite with Crane and take over the world with his fellow genius. In the end, Crane reveals he wants nothing to do with him and kills him via Rapid Aging.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His true appearance as Christian Rosenkreuz is that of a Bishōnen with a long ponytail.
  • No Immortal Inertia: Crane kills him by undoing the effect of the exilir of immortality, making Christian age into an old man within minutes until his body vanishes.
  • Really 700 Years Old: His true appearance is that of a young man and he hasn't aged in 500 years thanks to the exilir of immortality.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Unwitting Pawn: Near the end of the series, just when he thinks he has accomplished his goal of making Crane return to Earth by manipulating everyone, he finds out he was just another piece in Crane's master plan of making the Anima Mundi join Crane at his satellite for eternity.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: His final goal is making Crane return to Earth so they can work together and create a paradise by ruling over humanity forever. For the sake of making that possible, he will manipulate and sacrifice anyone.

    Takashi Ryuugasaki 
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (JP), Chris Patton (EN)

The "Black Prince Shooting Star". He is the fourteen-year old "son" of Washuu. He has a resemblance to him and is admired by Jun, Miyama, and Hatoko to the point that he manipulates their emotions.


  • Anti-Villain: He's behind most of the attacks to the Cyber Team, but it's hard to call him evil. Takashi is just a "Well Done, Son!" Guy who wants to prove himself to his "father," only to slowly realize his "father" won't ever look at him because he's obsessed with Crane, the guy Takashi was cloned from.
  • Artificial Human: Like Tsubame, he's an artificially created clone of Crane.
  • Bishōnen: He's a pretty-looking boy with a somewhat androgynous face.
  • But Now I Must Go: He tries to destroy Densuke in a last attempt to take out his anger over Washuu only caring about Crane, but he realizes that he cannot oppose to his father because of being conditioned to be loyal to him. He decides to leave Akihabara, never to be seen again. In a credits scene, he is seen in a train along with a younger, blue-haired clone of Tsubame.
  • Cloning Blues: Once Washuu doesn't need him to advance the awakening of the Divas anymore, Takashi finds out he's Crane's clone who was created by Washuu as an inferior replacement and tool. Takashi doesn't take any of this well.
  • Cry into Chest: After he discovers he's a clone and Washuu abandons him, he goes to Jun's apartment to seek her comfort and cries into her chest.
  • Domino Mask: He wears a mask that only covers his eyes as Shooting Star.
  • Foil: To Tsubame. They're both clones of Crane and both angst about finding love and about their loyalties. They're also puzzled with the concept of love. While Takashi chose to please Washuu, Tsubame found no solace in assisting Cigogne. Their responses to understanding their father figures only saw them as disposable tools are also vastly different. Tsubame's response to discovering love and friendship was to have a breakdown, get over it and befriend the Cyber Team. Takashi associated love with loyalty to Wasshu, failed at it and left the town.
  • The Heavy: He's the most direct antagonist for most of the series, but he's just following the orders of his "father" Washuu to awaken the Divas to make Crane return to Earth... And Crane is the real mastermind behind everything.
  • Princely Young Man: At first he presents himself to Hibari and the Sybil Team this way. However, he's actually a Deconstruction of the trope. He seems at first like a sweet, charming boy worthy of being the target of Prince Charming, but eventually proves to be a selfish, cowardly, childish, and manipulative whose only redeeming trait is his Undying Loyalty towards Washuu. And in the end it turns out he was conditioned this way, making him pitiable.
  • Put on a Bus: After he fails to destroy Densuke in the final episodes, he leaves Akihabara and is never seen or heard from again.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His costume as Shooting Star is black and red.
  • Replacement Goldfish: He's a clone of Crane and is as much of a prodify as he was. However, he always knew his "father" Washuu only saw him as a replacement for the genius Crane who he adored.
  • Teen Genius: He was able to construct prototype Pata-Pis at the age of nine.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Once Washuu is done with him, Takashi discovers he's really a clone of Crane, the man his "father" has been trying to make return to Earth for almost 100 years.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: After realizing that he was a Replacement Goldfish for Crane Bahnsteik, Takashi has a Villanous Breakdown and attempt to turn against Christian by attacking the Cyber Team girls by himself, but cannot bring himself to finish the job because he was conditioned by Christian into loyalty. He takes it pretty bad and leaves the town, since he cannot do anything to stop Christian.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Washuu. Since he is a clone, turns out he is conditioned this way.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Ever since he was a kid, he wanted to be useful to his "father" Washuu. Sadly, the only times Washuu praised his intelligence, he was only glad that Takashi was a prodigy like Crane, the boy he was cloned from.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He slaps his three female minions in the face when he needs to push them into making a more serious attack on the Cyber Team.

  • Minion with an F in Evil: They suck so much at being villains that they try to take the curry the Cyber Team made as hostage, seriously thinking they will give up their Pata-Pis for it.
  • Perky Female Minion: The three of them attack the Cyber Team at Shooting Star's orders, but they're all so childish and incompetent that it's impossible to take them seriously as villains.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The one thing that they have in common is their adoration for Shooting Star; besides that, they can't stand being together and actually can end up ruining their own plans by starting a fight among them before the Cyber Team can beat them.
  • Terrible Trio: They're a trio of Perky Female Minions who serve the Big Bad's son, who they're completely in love with. They antagonize the Cyber Team for most of the series, but they often act silly and aren't that effective as bad guys.
  • Villains Out Shopping: Episode 9 is about them taking a break from attacking the Cyber Team and going on a small vacation at the hot springs.
  • Womanchild: They're incredibly silly and immature, often acting like Smitten Teenage Girls towards their boss, despite being grown women.

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (JP), Greg Ayres (EN)

The mysterious "White Prince" who gives Densuke to Hibari. He often appears in her dreams an is the target of her many fantasies.


  • Animal Theme Naming: Like most characters, Crane is named after a bird.
  • Bishōnen: He's a young man with a pretty face.
  • Boy of My Dreams: Hibari has seen him in her dreams several times. He sends "messages" to people through their dreams from his satellite Primum Mobile, where he lives in suspended animation.
  • Broken Pedestal: To Hibari, who imagined him as a lovely prince, and Christian, who believed Crane was the key he needed to rule the world and create eternal peace. In the end, Crane betrays them both by revealing his true colors as a nihilist who is convinced humanity is not worth saving and only wants to spend eternity in space with his Anima Mundi, being willing to get rid of anyone who gets in the way of that goal.
  • The Chessmaster: His crazy plan to find his Anima Mundi needed to trust Christian would be obsessed enough with getting him back that he would mass produce the Pata-Pis Crane designed and forced the chosen girls to fight so the Divas would evolve to the point they can fuse with the girls.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Witnessing the horrors World War I made him lose his faith in humanity and convinced him it was a matter of time before the world was destroyed by pointless wars. He then left Earth to reside in a satellite.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He calmly watches as he makes Christian's body age and be reduced to nothing and then, he greets Hibari with the charming smile he always showed her in her dreams.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Towards the end of the anime, Christian believes he finally has Crane back so they can rule over Earth as immortal "gods" to achieve world peace. However, Crane ruins Christian's plans by revealing he has long given up hope on humanity and doesn't even see any worth in controlling it. Crane kills Christian by taking his immortality away and calmly watches the man's body wither away.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: He's got the looks of a fairy tale prince. When Hibari finally meets him in person, Crane is revealed to be cynical, merciless, and willing to resort to terrorism to force the Anima Mundi to come live at his castle in space forever.
  • Harem Seeker: It's not directly stated, but his ultimate goal is making the Anima Mundi fuse with the five Divas and have them come to live at his satellite where they'll be his companions for eternity.
  • Light Is Not Good: That his clothes are white is part of what makes everyone think he's the "good prince" while Takashi/Shooting Star is the "bad prince". The truth is Crane is more twisted and ruthless than Takashi could ever be.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The big reveal of the last episodes is Crane was the one who planned everything, from the creation of the Pata-Pis to the awakening of the Divas using the Anima Mundi. Washuu/Christian was yet another pawn in Crane's plan to get the Anima Mundi to live together with him in space forever.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: With Hibari. He stopped aging around 100 years ago when he came of age, while Hibari is a 12-year-old middle school student. Crane's master plan was to make Hibari and her friends immortals by fusing them with the Divas so they could be together forever in space. Even though Hibari becomes disillusioned with him after seeing Crane's true colors, Crane still thinks of Hibari as his Anima Mundi and kisses her before leaving Earth again.
  • Older Than He Looks: He looks like a boy in his late teens, but he's actually 126 years old. This is thanks to the elixir of immortality he drank when he joined.
  • Prince Charmless: For most of the series, Hibari thinks Crane is the lovely and gentle "prince" of her dreams. When she finally meets him, the reality is way far than what she imagined. The real Crane is a nihilist who thinks humanity is foolish and worthless, so he wants to force the Anima Mundi (the only humans he finds worth living for their pure souls) to leave Earth and spend the rest of eternity with him in his satellite.
  • Restored My Faith in Humanity: In the final episode, Crane sees the girls' love and good feelings gave their Pata-Pis a will of their own, driving them to take the girls' place in Primum Mobile so their owners aren't forced to leave Earth. Eventually, Crane returns the Pata-Pis to the girls since they gave him a new hope that not everything is lost for humanity.
  • Stepford Smiler: Depressed type. Behind his princely smile, there's a guy who has long lost hope in everything after the wars and tragedies caused by humans for centuries convinced him there's not a good future in store for Earth.
  • Straw Nihilist: Almost 100 years of watching humanity cause pointless wars and death has convinced him that everything on Earth is meaningless and rotten.
  • Teen Genius: He already shown to be a brilliant scientist when he was a teenager. His genius motivated Christian Rosenkreuz to recruit him for his secret organization.
  • Walking Spoiler: All information about him beyond being the mysterious "prince" from Hibari's dreams can give away almost every big revelation and twist in the series.
  • White and Red and Eerie All Over: His outfit is white and red. He's eventually revealed as the real mastermind behind everything and becomes the final antagonist in the last episodes.
