- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With the decidedly not heterosexual Kila, who doesn't exactly have a problem with romancing Mitsuru...

- Abusive Parents: He seems to care very little (if at all) about Kikyo, considering he was going to get Kikyo killed.
- Manipulative Bastard: Tries to trick Kikyo into getting himself executed, and manipulates Rindoh into going along with his plans, including killing the heroine, lying to Rindoh that she would be brought back to life.
