Personality[edit | edit source]

–Moroha before defeating the Nine-Headed Hydra
Moroha is usually shown as a normal good-hearted young man. He is a kind person, but at the same time he is lazy and does not enjoy being recognized or praised much. He does not consider himself a hero of justice nor does he enjoy fighting, but due to his past and being unable to save his parents, he does not want anyone else to go through the feeling of losing a family member or someone loved, which is demonstrated when he wanted to help Elena Arshavina. He is an honorable young man willing to protect the weak and his friends which he has done in his previous lives. In spite of his strength and abilities, he doesn't desire to be known as the "number one" in class ignoring the constant provocation from Gen Isurugi. Though if those who are close to him are in danger or are messed with, then he won't hesitate to stand up for them, which stems from the time he was unable to save his parents with a blood transfusion as a child. He also doesn't like being given credit for his actions as he didn't want to be promoted for defeating the Hydra as Shizuno Urushibara's brother continued to push him to do so.
Although Moroha tends to have respect for those higher ranked than him, he won't hesitate to go against them if it means protecting his friends since he disobeyed Jin Isurugi's choice to not initially assist Shizuno or Satsuki Ranjou; breaking inside of the mansion of Tadanori Urushibara, the Chairman of Akane Academy due to her transfer to England on the orders of her brother and taking her, much to her pleasure. Even if it meant that he would have to sacrifice his freedom in becoming an S-Rank and fighting Sir Edward Lampard to prove it.
Moroha also demonstrates a strong distaste and anger towards those who take from him and others. This is shown when the Russian Terror pleads for her life and to remain in power, and Moroha responds with the idea that they simply need to stop taking if they don't want to be taken from.
Moroha does not tolerate being underestimated or called weak and when serious, he can surprise his opponents with his powers. When a subordinate of the Russian Terror called the Japanese and Moroha weak because Moroha was unwilling to kill him, Moroha drew his sword and stabbed the man in the gut, while torturing him with the blade. He explained that if the man thought the Japanese were weak, it just goes to show how very little he knew about them.
Later in the series, it was shown that Moroha and Shizuno's relationship has gotten closer because of Shizuno's understanding of his worries and bothersome times, especially when Satsuki goes nuts about him. It was also seen that he has feelings for Shizuno at the end of the series when they almost kissed each other until Satsuki interrupted them.
Background[edit | edit source]
Kensei Fraga[edit | edit source]
As Kensei Fraga, he was the crowned prince of a small region and older brother of Sarasha, the past life of Satsuki Ranjou. He was hailed as being the strongest swordsman and guardian of the Holy Sword Salatiga to remain close to his sister who was the Holy Sword Maiden; it was also revealed that the two of them were lovers. Kensei never allowed Sarasha to enter the battlefield despite knowing her potential due to the dangers that it could pose and often fighting off entire armies alone.
At some point, he and his sister were betrayed due to the fear that the others had in the strength of Kensei Flaga believing him to be a monster instead of a human.
Shu Saura[edit | edit source]
As Shu Saura, he was hailed as the King of the Netherworld and husband of the Witch of the Netherworld, the past life of Shizuno Urushibara. At first, Shu Saura was imprisoned in some kind of enslavement camp where he soon encountered an unnamed female orphan who would soon become the Royal Witch.
In the anime, she befriended Shu Saura, feeding him while he was chained to a wall. Eventually, Shu Saura escaped his imprisonment, taking the girl with him. Sometime in the midst of conquering nations, becoming the King of the Netherworld, and flooding and freezing the world, Shu Saura married his companion, the Witch of the Netherworld, who by then matured into a beautiful sorceress. Their romantic story reached a chilling ending when the Ancient Dragon froze the Witch and crushed the resulting ice, killing her in a sad and bitter end.
