  • Friend to All Children: The children at the hospital love him, and it's noted on by the nurses.
  • Reincarnation: After his death, the others realize the reason the Lord seemed to have punished Kohaku the hardest was because they knew Shuichiro was going to die, and were giving Kohaku 100 years of slumber so they can meet Shuichiro again.

  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Kohaku literally can't lie, but it's mainly because they're too innocent to do it.
  • Deep Sleep: The Lord's "punishment" for Kohaku is to lose their powers for a hundred years, but after Shuichiro dies, it's revealed He did that because Shuichiro wouldn't be reincarnted until that time is over. Kohaku agrees to sleep until Shuichiro reincarnates, and wakes up at the end of the story to see him again.

  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Kohaku has white wings.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: In virtue of being an angel, Kohaku is innocent and without a mean bone in their body, but it's revealed later on that, even among angels, Kohaku is so pure they're the only one able to sing to a heavenly tree to birth more angels.

  • Make a Wish: Kohaku offers to grant Shuichiro a wish to thank the human for saving them, but then Shuichiro admits he's pretty content with his life and has no desire to wish for anything. Kohaku spends the rest of the story trying to figure out what wish he could have, and in the end Shuichiro wishes for Kohaku to stay at his side forever.
  • The Needless: Kohaku doesn't eat human food as they can sunbathe or drink milk to give them energy.

  • Blow You Away: Hisui can channel attacks or barriers with wind.

The Archangel of Water, who was sent to bring Kohaku back to heaven in volume 3.


Demonic Beings

The son of Satan who has mysteriously vanished from Hell and has chosen to live on earth with Hisui.
  • Big Damn Heroes: His entrance in the manga is certainly full of flair when he diffuses Koryu's lightning attack with flames and enters the scene wearing dark shades.
  • Big Eater: He eats a lot of Hisui's cooking, likely because Hisui made it, and because he promised to not eat anymore human souls so he has to consume human food to live.
  • Character Tic: When he wants to cuddle with Hisui he grabs the angel by the arm and pulls them in.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: "Crazy" might be a bit strong of a word, but he's really touchy feely with Hisui and makes sure everyone around him knows that Hisui is his. If others touch Hisui or look at them in a certain way, he immediately pulls the angel towards himself.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite wearing all black and being the son of Satan he doesn't do anything heinous throughout the story towards the main characters and just wants to live a quiet life with Hisui.
  • Double Entendre: In some translations when he first meets the cast he tells them the reason Hisui's wings no longer emit light is because he has "devoured" the angel entirely. Koryu and the others are stunned, but Kohaku asks how Hisui could still be here if Kokyu "ate" them. In other translations, he outright says they've made love.
  • Eye Scream: He took out his left eye and turned it into an earring for Hisui to wear to show his devotion to the angel. However, it's customary for demons to do this for their beloved and it doesn't seem to have hurt him.
  • Face Palm: He does this after he and Hisui make love... without asking for their name and only finding out afterwards that he had fallen in love with an Archangel of heaven.
  • Forbidden Love: He falls in love with one of heaven's Archangels, which could set off a war between their realms. Although by the end of the story, Hisui is merely punished with exile on earth and they're both fine with that.
  • Foreseeing My Death: He figures out that Shuichiro is going to die soon and when he tries to tell Hisui he gets continually interrupted. By the time he gets fed up with whoever was interfering, he finds out it was the Lord himself stopping him from divulging that information.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: He has large dark wings that he uses for flight or to wrap Hisui under.
  • Identical Stranger: He looks really similar to Shuichiro, but it's never really addressed beyond Rui and Hari pointing it out.
  • It Was a Gift: Hisui notices Kokyu being annoyed by the sunlight and he confirms it only really annoys his left eye. When Hisui starts looking apologetic, Kokyu assures them he's fine giving up his left eye for Hisui as he gently puts his hand near the earring Hisui wears.
  • Kissing Cousins: He and Koryu are vaguely related and were lovers in the past.
  • Love at First Sight: He becomes instantly enamored by Hisui when he first sees them.
  • Meet Cute: He met Hisui before a conference meeting between heaven and hell when the Archangel was mending a broken tree branch. When he goes to talk to Hisui the angel makes to leave, but not before Kokyu grabs their wrist and asks if the two of them can meet again.
  • Mismatched Eyes: He has a black right eye and white left eye. This is because he gave his left eye to Hisui which is the earring on the angel's left ear. He claims that his people give their beloved their left eyes as a token of their love.
  • Opposites Attract: Satan's son falls in love with and runs away with an Archangel from heaven.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: Although he's a demon, he refers to himself with male pronouns.
  • Really Gets Around: It's mentioned by Koryu that Kokyu would romance angels and demons alike. Once he falls for Hisui he swears to be monogamous to them.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: When he and Hisui are together they become this, to some of the other characters annoyance.
  • The Stoic: He doesn't emote much unless he's around Hisui. His usual face scares Kohaku off most of the time which leads to Hisui to ask him not to look at the other angel like that.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He fits all of these tropes.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: After he falls in love with Hisui, he knows neither of them can return to heaven or hell, but is glad to stay on earth.

A demon who could be considered Kohaku's equal in terms of power and enjoys spending his time tormenting and bullying the angel.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Inverse, while Koryu refers to himself with male pronouns, some human passerby mistake him for a woman.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: He has dark black wings contrasting with Kohaku's.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He gets really annoyed when Kohaku is around Shuichiro and looks so happy, and at times he tries to seduce Shuichiro to no effect.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: As much as he enjoys annoying Kohaku, he hates it when others don't see him as a threat or take him seriously.
  • Kick the Dog: While his pranks on Kohaku are done in mean spirit his worse offense has to be when he helps Kohaku go into the past to understand Shuichiro... and then leaving the angel behind when they're too tired to be able to warp back to the future and would have been stuck had it not been for Hotaru using the rest of her life force to help.
  • Kissing Cousins: He and Kokyu are vaguely related and were lovers in the past.
  • Loving Bully: The reason he bullies and annoys Kohaku so much is likely because he actually has a crush on the angel but thinks it's just because he enjoys seeing them cry.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: Although he's a demon he refers to himself using male pronouns.
  • Pet the Dog: A bully he may be, but after God punishes Kohaku with losing their powers for a hundred years he gets outright furious for the angel at the unfairness.
  • Troll: He thrives off being an annoyance in Kohaku's life, doing whatever he can to see the angel look miserable.
  • Tsundere: He claims to be doing everything just to annoy and make Kohaku's life miserable, although there are hints that there is more to his bullying than even he seems to realize.
  • What Is This Feeling?: He gets all warm and fuzzy when he sees Kohaku crying, but doesn't seem to fully understand that it's a crush.
