Akari, birth name, Mitarai Toukichirou, is a transgendered male-to-female Buddhist nun, also known as Genbu one of Lucifer's Holy Guardian of the East Gate. 

HistoryEdit

Mitarai Toukichirou was born in a family of demon exterminators that serve as the traditional guardians of the land of Karasumori. They are trained from a very young age in the use of Houriki. His grandmother who sensed immense power in the child was angered when Mitarai was born male. Since men could not learn the family art, Mitarai's grandmother raised the child as a girl.

Because of this Mitarai is incredibly feminine in appearance and personality. Despite many attempts to express his masculinity when growing up he has confessed that

Because she angered at the fact that Mitarai was born male his grandmother was very abusive, and beat him for every instance she deemed as masculine. Though he resented this treatment he tried his best and longed for his grandmother’s acceptance which she never gave despite his immense power, and healing abilities.

After some time he eventually realized that his grandmother would never except him and grew tired of her treatment and left. Though attempted his masculinity at this time it didn’t feel right and he realized that "his body was male, but his heart was female" and for the first time he felt generally happy at least about his body. His grandmothers abuse still stuck adopting the name 'Akari' she trained diligently never feeling good enough

Eventually she came across Lucifer and earned his admiration for showing fearlessness in the face of death and he granted her a chance to achieve to achieve the power she so richly wanted as well as her grandmother’s approval.

Genbu was defeated by Juubei Kakei after a long and drawn out battle.

SexualityEdit

Akari’s sexuality is up for grabs now due to story possibilities. Akari’s Dere personality would lead to some interesting scenarios. However I also like the possibilities of giving Kazuki a rival. Keeping with Akari’s original personality from SDK she falls in love Juubei. I’m leaning more towards Jubei.

WeaponsEdit

Shakujō: A Shakujō is a ringed staff used primarily for prayer and in combat. The rings serve to warn spirits and vermin in the monk's path to move aside and avoid being trodden upon. Each of the rings represent a spiritual ideal, and a large number of rings indicates that its wielder is far along the path of enlightenment. The head of Akari's is sharpened, while the staff portion is not wood, but a metal pole. Akari combines her spiritual powers with her staff to slice through demons and often uses the staff as a melee weapon.

Sacred Sutras: These "Jufu Talismans" are strips of paper upon which special prayers have been written and prayed over, imbuing them with spiritual power and energy against specific evil. Each Ofuda has a special prayer, and thus is tailored for a specific purpose such as general protection, good luck, safe travel, removing a ghost or spirit, or sealing off a demon or spirit. Akari uses them in her work to "exorcise" ghosts and demons from homes and people.

Abilities Edit

HourikiEdit

Tuthanhthien-akari1
Akari is a master of Buddhist magic, a form of “clerical” magic that in many ways is similar to Onmyōjutsu. It is the knowledge, and understanding of the flow of energy; both intellectually and intuitively. The ability to discern the flow of this energy as it changes from one form to the next, how it is aligned, when it aligns, and in what conditions its alignment or flow will change grant the monk the ability to act on this knowledge to manipulate, even change the flow entirely. Knowing how to channel one's energy and to understand its flow is paramount. Akari is able to discern not only how the energy is flowing and its unique qualities, but change it as they see fit. This allows her to alter the very framework of his spells, not just their effect, but their shape and form, their very manifestation. Houriki is not something that something that one can obtain through purity and virtue. Instead the power seems to come from the innate strength of one’s tamashii or soul.

Psychic sensitivity: For Buddhist Monks/Nuns, the ability to discern, and manipulate the flow of the energies of the world around them is a necessary skill in using their unique magic. Akari posses extraordinary sensory input in regards to energy, and demonstrate a highly acute level spiritual awareness. She is able to detect what is referred to as "ripples in a pond", the subtle vibrations, wavelengths, the ebb and flow of energy as it propagates through the world. Her senses are so precise, that they can detect the presence of spiritual beings, the use of supernatural abilities, and even the presence of magic as it is cast within the area. A spiritual energy signature is often described using a variety of senses, from its color, texture, taste, even how it appears to interact with the environment. Akari can discern minute details about a person or object by "reading" imprints left by their presence long after they have gone, and accurately describe their movements.

 

Life-Force Absorption: Akari is able to tap into and absorb the ambient spiritual energy in the environment into herself and combine it with her own to sustain herself. When focused on a specific target she can drain their life force. The potency of Akari’s ability is such that she can instantly drain a person’s entire life force causing their body to crumble into dust. She is strong enough to drain from multiple targets at once.

Purification/exorcism spells: The primary weapons in a cleric’s arsenal is exorcising spirits, banishing them to their home realms, and driving away foreign influences, such as drugs. Naturally this ability makes Houriki extremely effective against spiritual beings, drastically increasing the potency of the cleric’s attacks and binding effects. Clerics’ can easily "purify" and in essence cause the very spiritual bonds that make up spiritual creatures to dissolve and destabilize. Akari can simultaneously use her energy absorption abilities to tear them apart at their most basic level and absorb their spiritual essence. However, beings of strong spiritual power are able to resist its effects, though are no less subject to the heightened effects of Houriki. Powers exercising any sort of mental control over another, either through possession or some form of magic, can be removed very easily by clerics. Usually these are delivered though a physical medium such as an arrow, a paper charm, a shinto staff, or even a handful of salt. Very powerful spells can be delivered though the cleric’s own body, but this is debilitating and potentially fatal to the spell-caster. Akari usually focuses them through her Shakujō. The power of Genbu grants her the ability to sever the bonds of matter splitting it. Using her Shakujō as a spear Akari is able to break through literally any target and split it in two. This can also be used to dispel attacks.

Sealing spells: Advanced techniques that transcribe the cleric’s spells onto ready-made paper-tags with runes etched onto them. By using one of these sealing tags the cleric can quickly and at no cost manifest the transcribed spell. Alternatively, they can use them to augment their magic, generally by exhausting the sealing tag as part of the casting, or drawing a symbol of the magic on a surface. By using these sealing tags they can more easily afflict their targets with effects as when it is directly attached to a person or spiritual being the effects of that spell are magnified many times over. Sealing magic of course goes far beyond the realm of simple paper-tags, as by combining this skill with enhanced barrier magic, the cleric can create pocket dimensions, used to store items, or even seal powerful entities.

Healing Spells: Akari displays potent healing capabilities; the body requires strength to recover from an injury. Of course people have various speeds of healing, but there’s a certain limit to regeneration. So if a person were to cut their arm, it would heal, but if they cut it off, they can’t grow it back like a lizard can grow back its tail. This is an advanced technique that supports a person’s own strength and guides it to heal or regenerate the body even better than a lizard could. It can even grow back an arm. The spell can only heal surface injuries however; internal injuries or torn muscles can only be healed by rest.

Shinjinbukai Jurin (信心深い従臨, lit. "Godly Subjugation"): One of the most terrifying skills at Akari’s disposal is the ability to utilize her unique magic to subjugate spiritual creatures binding them to her will. It works by breaking down the basic elemental properties that exist within nature and by extension all things in creation, allowing Akari to influence the harmony between yin (will) and yang (physical) energies. By doing so she can manipulate the very spiritual alignment of another creatures spiritual power, thereby directing it. Given that most creatures have such conflicting emotions and ideals; it is easier to simply control the body, and not the mind itself, almost as if they were a puppet. Once dominion is established Akari can bind them to her, allowing her access to their perceptions, minds, and control over their bodies at any other time.

Genbu Edit

Kekkai (結界, lit. "Bounded Field"): Are magical fields created through a bounded network of spiritual energy spread across an environment to create a mystical boundary line that separates the space within from the outside world. Houriki allow Akari to separate the energies of yin and yang in order to project a measure of her own inner world; in essence a localized pocket dimension. These boundaries are fields of space enclosed from reality, but as the world serves as the template, they mimic the environment they are created in. However since this is a pocket dimension, structural damage dealt within the field disappears upon dismissal of the field, similarly, changes in the surrounding reality do not affect the area within the field, nor do changes in the field affect the surrounding reality. By erecting such fields, the cleric is able to harness and greatly empower their own abilities within the confines of these fields. This requires intense concentration and cannot be maintained very long. Akari was more skilled in offense then defense meaning she was relatively weak in Kekkai however Genbu grants her the ultimate defense within her territory allowing her to create much stronger and more stable barriers. They can vary in size and protect her and others by repel the attack she receives.

 

Spatial Phasing (波同, Same Wave): The power of Genbu has granted Akari the ability to pass through foreign techniques, without disrupting the technique itself. She has mastered this skill to point where she can phase her entire body through virtually any surface contained within a spirit realm.

NotesEdit

Akari became fast friends with Reiji Tsuzuki due to their similar upbringings. She encouraged her to express her feminine side.

This character is based off the original Akari from Samurai Deeper Kyo, but she also combines characteristics of Aoi Futaba, Lord Fanny, Fujinami Ryuunosuke, Konatsu, Orihime Inoue, Shiowatari Nagisa, and Tokine Yukimura.
