Mao Dun (矛盾, Máo Dùn) is a very enigmatic member of the newly-reformed Magic Council whose past and origin are said to lie within a far eastern continent. Although he is noted to be very secretive, his knowledge on magic and its workings far surpass any other's. How he came to join the Magic Council is unknown, as is most of his other aspects.
Mao is trademarked by his extremely fragile appearance, including very sharp cheekbones and slanting eyes, giving him a fox-like appearance. He caries around a faint smile on his features that he rarely abandons, although it is not as mocking or daring in nature as one would expect. His skin is also very pale, due his extensive layers of clothing shielding most of it from the sun. His brown hair is tied up in a ponytail, stretching past his shoulders, with various spiky bangs escaping around his face.
Mao always wear very formal chinese clothing named xuanduan, which is colored a deep blue and dons an orange-golden lining, said to represent royal lineage in his location of origin. Below, he wears yellow sashinuki hakama, which are gathered at the ankles producing a "ballooning" effect. The entirety is kept up by a brown/black obi.
Mao is a very manipulative and secretive person, appearing very enigmatic and strange to other beings, being aware of this and exploiting it on various occasions. Although his intentions are good, his methods and manners sometimes seem questionable, although no one so far has dared to go into Mao's decisions. He also possess a very uncanny ability to always know everything about any given topic, as if he was constantly monitoring everyone.
In complete contrast to other council members, Mao is very soft-spoken, never raising his voice above a faint whisper given he should speak at all. Mao speaks with a distinctive cantonese accent, usually ending his sentences with something like "ah", "lah" or "gah".
