Characters

Main

Yuki Sakurai (Giou) (桜井(祗王)夕月 Sakurai (Giō) Yuki?) Voiced by: Hoshi Souichirou
The bearer of Kami no Hikari (神の光 (The Light of God)?) or "God's light". The main protagonist, and a freshman in high school. His mother left him at birth in order to protect him and he has been living in Asahi Orphanage. Sometimes, when he touches someone, he's able to read that person's emotions and see that person's past. It caused him to suffer greatly, but he has unexpectedly grown into an unyielding individual. He didn't have any recollection of his past life, but he feels an odd nostalgia for Luka, and ends up relying on him. After he leaves the orphanage, he's been referred to as "Giou Yuki." Yuki has been reincarnated many times, however this is the first time he was born male. It has been mentioned this may be a sign that things are coming to an end or that he wants to forget the past.
Zess (Luka Crosszeria) (ゼス(ルカ=クロスゼリア) Zesu (Ruka Kurosuzeria)?) Voiced by: Sakurai Takahiro
A young man with silver eyes and black hair who's been protecting Yuki from the shadows ever since his birth 15 years ago. Despite being a duras (a.k.a demon), he's currently acting on Giou Clan side and is recognized as a traitor by the other Duras. Although his real age is unknown, his appearance looks like that of a college student. Normally reserved and indifferent, his facial expressions softens when he's with Yuki. It was during the last war that he changed side to the Giou Clan, as he apparently made a binding "contract" with Yuki. Luka is a descendant of the "family of sinners" (Zess) and a high-grade demon (Opasts). Luka battles with a large black sword and can use powerful magic (and even summon a powerful Salamander dragon). He was once the loyal dog for the demon king and used to drink his blood, that's why he is stronger than any opasts and it's possible that he is stronger than the demon king himself. But he left his position as the loyal dog for the demon king after meeting Yuki ( Yuki, when s/he was still a woman ). It was during the previous battle that Luka met Yuki and they fell in love. The current Yuki doesn't remember being Luka's lover, but every time he sees Luka his heart responds strongly. Luka refuses to tell Yuki about their past, but stands by the current male Yuki and promises he will stay with Yuki as long as Yuki wants him to.
The manga suggests a bit of a darker history. Luka tells Yuki he was considered a slave because he belonged to the "sinner" clan, Crosszeria, and that all the other duras were intent on punishing the whole family and all its descendants. The demon king owned Luka, and as a symbol of this, put his own blood into Luka's brand. The demon king's blood made the brand on Luka's arm glow red, and it caused Luka a great deal of pain during the process. Years later, Luka is still haunted by the memory and feels physically ill when recalling it. Because it was a blood seal, if Luka should ever betray the demon king, he would die. Luka explains to the current incarnation of Yuki that since he made a new contract with Yuki, the previous contract with the demon king was voided, allowing Luka to live. Luka hints that the prior contract with the demon king may not be "completely" voided, however.

Zweilt Guardian

Tsukumo Murasame (叢雨九十九 Murasame Tsukumo?) Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama
The bearer of Kami no Mimi, God's Ears. A high school boy who appears to Yuki along with his sister at the start of the story. He is one of the Zweilt Guardians and also part of the Giou Clan, making him and his sister Yuki's distant relatives. His powers seem to be the ability to speak with animals, sense people, and transform his ring into a gun during a battle. For some reason he always has snacks with him. He seems to be extremely close with his older sister Toko, whom he calls Toko-chan and says he will always protect. He was severely injured by Reiga in episode 10, but Yuki managed to heal him.
Toko Murasame (叢雨十瑚 Murasame Tōko?) Voiced by: Inoue Marina
Tsukumo's older sister, Yuki's relative and also a Zweilt guardian. Her ring transforms in a huge sword. She attends the same high school as her brother, where their closeness make all the girls jealous of her. She is very fond of Yuki (whom she calls Yuki-chan), telling him that "He is a person who is too kind for their own good" and asking him to refer to her in a more close way (Toko-chan) instead of calling her Toko-san.
Hotsuma Renjou (蓮城焔椎真 Renjou Hotsuma?) Voiced by: Ono Daisuke
The bearer of Kami no Koe, God's Voice. Hotsuma is one of the Zweilt guardians, and he can use fire as he likes. He is short tempered and impulsive. He has been friends with Shuusei since childhood. At first he dislikes Yuki, since he thinks that he has the same personality he had in his previous life (which may indicate that he used to be on bad terms with female Yuki), but with time it seems that he grows somewhat close to him. He was basically abandoned by his parents who labeled him a monster, and the only time they come see him is whenever they need money. Hotsuma's past was shadowed by his fire abilities, and while protecting a classmate, he ended up attacking a few of his classmates, which isolated him from everyone else. Afterwards, he attempted to kill himself, but Shuusei stopped him, giving Shuusei the burn scar. Hotsuma constantly blames himself for Shuusei's scar and is scared of hurting someone, but Yuki is able to calm him.
Shusei Usui (碓氷愁生 Usui Shusei?) Voiced by: Miyano Mamoru
The bearer of Kami no Me, God's Eyes. Shuusei, also part of the guardians, is Hotsuma's childhood friend. He helps the police in solving crimes with his "sixth sense". He seems to be a quiet and sensitive person. He has a tendency of not eating a lot most of the time, as he doesn't have much of an appetite. He disappears suddenly, after seeing that Hotsuma was on better terms with Yuki, stating that he has 'served his purpose' and recognizes the fact that Yuki was able to shatter Hotsuma's fears of being a monster. Then he is kidnapped by Ashley and put into a deep sleep never to wake again. Although Ashley states that it was more that Shusei, desiring to die, stopped his own heart. However, Hotsuma's uses his Kami no Koe to issue the command "live", this revives Shusei.
Kuroto Hourai (蓬莱 黒刀 Hourai Kuroto?) Voiced by: Kamiya Hiroshi
A professional shogi player prodigy who is very quiet and serious by nature. But, once he decides to do something he'll put full effort into doing it even if it means quitting something he loves e.g. shogi. He gained a love for Shogi after he was taken in by Senshirou's grandfather. He lost his original partner during the previous war and Senshirou is now his second partner.

When he meets Yuki for the first time, he tells him that he and his father had been looking for him ever since his birth fifteen years earlier. He is also the head of the Giou clan. Although it is not yet revealed, Takashiro seems to be hiding something from Yuki and the rest of the Guardians. The truth is he preformed a forbidden ritual that allowed him to take a duras into his body. Because of this he, unlike the other Zweilt Guardians, has not been reincarnated. Instead he has lived for a thousand years, remembering everything, including how the war with duras first began. He also heals almost immediately after being injured. He believes that in order to win the war, there have to be sacrifices. He possesses a magic book much like Kanata, although his is red. It has been told that Reiga was his friend. He is also the one responsbile for continually causing Yuki and the Zwielt to reincarnate so they can continue fighting Reiga. He then apologizes for lying to Yuki, telling him that he is not really Yuki's brother, but Yuki forgives him, telling him that despite that, Takashiro is still very important to him.

Isuzu Fujiwara (藤原 彌涼 Fujiwara Isuzu?) Voiced by: Narita Ken
Isuzu is the Giou's family doctor who works full time at the infirmary located at Twilight Mansion. Isuzu is known for passing out for various days from lack of sleep, which is caused by his sleepless and restless nights of researching the subject of duras.

He proceeds to tells Yuki that he was not related by blood to Yuki and that it was a lie to gain Yuki's initial trust. The reincarnation of the Zweilt guardians are also due to Takashiro summoning their souls back into the world in order to participate in the battle. Receiving empathy and understanding from Yuki who assures Takashiro that he remains an important person to him even if they do not possess blood ties, Takashiro brings Yuki to a monument which is known as God's Stone, the source of the Giou family's powers. There, he explains the origins of Reiga who was born from a union between a Giou-clan mother and an Opast father, making him a forbidden child. Reiga's main intent is to destroy humans as he views them as not fit to live.

17 Sakura
"Sakura" (桜)
August 1, 2010[32] {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Takashiro recounts the events that took place 1000 years ago, during the Heian period. The Giou clan was a well-known family who directly served the court and was lead by 4 high-ranking personages: Ario, Takashiro, Reiga and a girl named Yomi. Reiga was feared and shunned due to his mixed parentage but he was supported by both Takashiro and Yomi. They lived in relative peace until a summons came from the royal court for the Giou clan to exterminate some monsters that were accidentally summoned. Takashiro accepted the task and set off from the village, leaving Reiga and Yomi in-charge of defending the village. Before he left, however, he remarked that he would be back to witness the blossoming of the lone sakura tree which had not put forth flowers for a long time. The monster-exterminating task took Takashiro longer than he initially thought and when he rode back, he witnessed a great fire decimating the village. Hearing from a wounded villager that Reiga had disarmed the barrier that protects the village, causing a horde of monsters to assault the place, he ran in search for Reiga but found Yomi dead. He received the scar on his face as Reiga directed a beam of light while Takashiro attempted to rush to Yomi's side. As Takashiro questioned Reiga as to his motive for burning the village, Reiga remarks that "everything is already too late" before disappearing. Yuki, after knowing of the event that ignited the battle, decides to continue participating in it to stop others from getting hurt. It is also revealed that Ibuki and Tsubaki are his aunts; them being his mother, Mizuki's younger sisters. Handing over a picture of Mizuki to Yuki, they reassure him that his birth was not meaningless as he is loved and wanted. It was unknown however, why Mizuki withheld the name of her husband from her sisters and also the reason why Yuki was left at the orphanage.

She tries to persuade Luka to return to the Duras' side but was rejected. A brief fight ensues with Luka easily disarming Elegy; most probably because she refuses to use her full power. As he was about to deal the finishing blow, a figure appeared before him: the female Yuki from the past. Luka was stunned to see her and lowered his guard, embracing her as she repeatedly tells him that she loves him. The figure proved to be an illusion when Tsukumo injured Elegy with a shot from his gun and both him and Touko ran up to Luka to provide back-up. Elegy, outnumbered, retreats. On the other side of the forest, Yuki was rushed back to the mansion by Senshiro and Kuroto as they sensed Elegy; a General-class Duras while searching for Luka. Yuki, however, remains worried about Luka's whereabouts as he entered the safety of the mansion.

21 The Indelible Image
"Kienu Omokage" (消えぬ面影)
August 29, 2010 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Reiga who appeared to deflect Cadenza's attack on Yuki commands Cadenza to retreat by invoking his summoner's right. Cadenza was enveloped in chains, which Kuroto explained, will burn through him if he still refuses to obey Reiga's commands. Cadenza remarked slyly that since Reiga already has 2 General-Class Opasts under him, his powers are currently split, making him weaker. Breaking the chains easily, Cadenza turns on his master as befit his title "Master Killer" and they exchanged blows. Reiga was overpowered soon enough and when Cadenza was aiming for the finishing strike, Luka appeared and blocks the attack, saving Reiga. Telling both Kuroto and Senshiro to escort Yuki back to the mansion, Luka promises Yuki that he will protect Reiga if that is Yuki's wish. As both Luka and Cadenza released their powers in preparation for a duel, the other Zweilts appear. Cadenza aims for a sneak attack at Yuki but was stopped by Reiga, yet again coming to Yuki's aid, surprising everyone. Yuki was even more assured that it was Kanata that wanted to protect him and confronts Reiga. However, Reiga mentions that it was just his plan not to kill Yuki so early in the battle and reiterates the fact that Kanata is now gone. As Yuki continues to deny Reiga's words, Cadenza finally asks Reiga where his loyalties lie.
