Akatsuchi is a wandering Mage who has allied himself with Mūna Kan'on on his quest to find the "ultimate magic". Akatsuchi is a powerful Mage who has become a self-proclaimed Glorious White Knight (麗らか白馬の騎士, Uraraka Hakubanokishi; Literally "Bright Knight in Shining Armor") mastering Requip when he was just a child.
An apathetic and very stoic man, Akatsuchi keeps to himself and focuses on his own goals over all. He has no comprehension of "friendship" or "bonds", and as a result, constantly clashes with Makō who cherishes his bonds. Akatsuchi has chosen to journey with Mūna, on "his own terms" although the specific reasoning his unknown to either Mūna or Makō. Despite acting very harsh towards his apparent friends, Akatsuchi has admitted to Mūna that he and Makō are the first people to ever treat him like a friend and Akatsuchi respects this immensely.
He believes in fair-fighting and holds firmly onto the beliefs of a Knight. He is a keeper of the peace by nature and would rather see camaraderie instead of bloodshed. Akatsuchi has a very narrow moral compass, refusing to break way from his righteous path, believing that the good are the true heroes of the world.
Magic & Abilities
Binding Magic (結合の魔法 Ketsugō no Mahō): This magic gives Akatsuchi the ability to divide their spirit and place it in an object or a body of matter; making that object apart of his being. He can divide his spirit into as many parts as he wishes. However, the more a spirit is divided, the more difficult it becomes to control an object; this includes his own body. If a user places a piece of their spirit into a living creature, it will be under the user's control unless it is able to fight off the user. The larger the portion of the user's spirit is placed in a body of magic, the easier it will be to possess it.
Requip (換装 Kansō): Akatsuchi mastered this magic when he was just a child, allowing him to give himself the title of Glorious White Knight. This magic allows him to store items, clothing and weaponry in a pocket dimmension which he can summon at any time.
- Akatsuchi's name literally means "Red Earth"
