Nocturnal Community Relations Division
A newcomer to the Nocturnal Community Relations Division, Arata was assigned to the division after 'figuring' out the trick question. He is both a descendant and the reincarnation of Abe no Seimei, the (in)famous master of onmyōdō during the middle of the Heian period in Japan.
Arata possesses the 'Ears of Sand', the ability to communicate with the 'Another' species, something that sets him apart from the other division members.
- Rookie Red Ranger: Arata is reincarnation of Abe no Seimei and can communicate with the various Another species, yet he initially had no idea what was the real purpose of the Nocturnal Community Relations Division until he participated in their activities for the very first time. Bonus points for also being a Red-Headed Hero.
- Suddenly Fluent in Gibberish: Basically what the Ears of Sand boils down to.
The brawn of the team.
The brains of Arata's group.
- But Not Too Foreign: Hes half-Irish, half-Japanese.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: To the point Sakaki has used Theo more then once as a fake girlfriend to ward off one night stands.
- Older Than They Look: Despite his youthful looks, he's the oldest one among his NCRD Shinjuku Ward peers (he's 38 years old, a year older than Chief Senda).
- Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been spelled a couple of ways: Himezuka/Himetsuka/Himeduka for his last name, and Seo/Theo for his given name. The official romanization of his name is Theo Himeduka, as seen in the second PV.
The Aztec god of chaos who enjoys 'playing' with Seimei, and Seimei's current reincarnation Arata is next.
- Blue and Orange Morality: For as long as he gets his fun, he doesn't exactly care much about any collateral damage he may cause.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: He is very androgynous.
- Immortal Immaturity: Fitting for The Trickster of the Aztec pantheon, he is every bit as childish as he is powerful.
- In-Series Nickname: Kohaku is the name given to him by Seimei centuries ago.
- Red Baron: "The Old Coyote".
- Shameless Fanservice Guy: Offers Arata to wear more 'pleasing' clothes.
- Token Evil Teammate: While he is not inclined to go all the way to full-blown villainy, he is a loose cannon thanks to his Skewed Priorities.
Tokyo Metropolitan Government - Nocturnal Culture and Environment Bureau
- Foil: To Arata, who's willing to kill Anothers regardless if they're innocent or not.
Tokyo Metropolitan Police
- Friend on the Force: For the various NCRDs since he and his unit are the ones who are fully aware of the conspiracy to keep paranormal events from reaching the public.
