     Kannagi Family 

Kazuma Yagami

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (JP), Robert McCollum (EN)

The male protagonist of the series.

Born as Kazuma Kannagi, he is a former member of the Kannagi household. He was banished from the family by his father and changed his name to Kazuma Yagami after being defeated by Ayano during the successor ceremony for "Enraiha", his family's sacred sword, due to his inability to use Enjutsu.

Four years later, at the age of twenty two, he returns to Japan as the most powerful master of Wind Magic to have ever existed, possessing god-like powers. As a "Fūjutsushi" (風術師?, Wind Technique Practitioner), Kazuma's powers are extensive and he is by far the most powerful character in the series. Apart from being able to fly even while holding three people, Kazuma can also launch blasts of wind that act as blades and manipulate wind spirits to create a barrier, protecting his body from physical harm or reflecting light in order to camouflage himself.

It has also become apparent that he possibly has the ability to manipulate electricity (shown during episode 23 just before Ayano brings him back to his normal self using the crimson flame). In the series he tries to avenge Tsui Ling's death because he blames himself for not protecting her. Towards the end of the series he become aware of the fact that he loves Ayano and vows to protect her.
