PersonalityEdit

Human Edit

As a child he was selfless, friendly and outgoing. Mika approached Yu to welcome him to orphanage and reacted to Yu's anger with empathy. His family were important to him, not even minding living in a vampire city since they were together. Mika would take practical measures to provide food for them by offering his own blood to a vampire. He explained to Yu that they need to use their heads if they are going to survive. Mika's altruistic nature and concern for his family were what motivated him to steal both a map and gun before he led them to escape from the city since Yu did not like it there. After it became clear that the scenario was not going to happen, Mika reminded Yu they were family and ran towards Ferid with the gun to give Yu a chance to escape. He was happy that Yu acknowledged they were family and managed to escape.

Vampire Edit

He was against being turned into a vampire, yet not having a choice and living with the trauma of what happened to his family. , his vampirism is a concern and he appeared troubled when Yu was proceeding with the topic on whether he was human. Mika is resilient, physically as well as when he shows little signs of pain after being stabbed through the body

The vampire's own law did not help him against Ferid

Mika derides the idea of this law. Why should he follow those rules, they did not stop Ferid from drinking his blood and Mika adds that Ferid did not hesitate.

Mika replies that he had no idea he was playing into Ferid's hands, or that his family would be killed to amuse him. He asks how many humans Ferid slaughtered just because he got a little bored, and glares at him after he hears that is ancient history and that he is a vampire now.

Asked how he is going to defend Yu

Defended by Ferid against a check-mate move

With Ferid blocking the sword meant for him, and after Guren has been beaten away Mika hears from Ferid that he should remember it is always a mistake to underestimate the livestock.

Denying the time requested

Holding his blade against Guren’s trembling one, with his increased speed that has been noticed, Mika replies that he is not holding anything back from now on.

Proceeding to stab Guren

Informing Guren this is the end, Mika addresses him as "human". Following Guren's challenge to do it then, Mika is expressionless as he impales Guren through the chest. Hearing someone shout, Mika regards it as another reckless human and comments what annoying pests.

Reflecting how Yu is too nice, and prone to being taken advantage of

Sometimes Yu can be too nice, so much so that people take advantage of him. His thoughts include the truth that Yu’s new friends are faking it, that they are greedy and deceitful, all of them. With that the thorned vines from his sword take hold of his wrist and his silver sword turns blood red. He listens to Ferid's plan that all the humans will die except for the little lost lamb, Yūichirō.

Yu shouldn't be here, the humans are just using him

After running away from the battle, Mika jumps across structures carrying Yu all the while.

Yu has raised whether Mika is still human

It leaves Mika appearing uncomfortable. Asked outright whether he is still human, and whether the vampires changed him, Mika is certain Yu did nothing wrong.

Listening to updates on the true purpose of the mission

They called it "seraph of the end." Questioned by Lacus on what Ferid knows since Mika is always kept within arms reach of him, Mika is also questioned whether that is how he gained Krul's favour.

  • "I can do this on my own." - If he were rejecting the idea of fighting alongside Ferid, or because he believes it, Mika was prepared to fight Lieutenant Colonel, Guren Ichinose by himself.10
  • “He will regret coming to attack me. It will be his undoing. My sword!” - His response for Guren heading his way, and invoking his sword to release its thorned vines to drink his blood in preparation10
  • "I evaded the blast. And besides, do you really think old school spell craft works on vampires?" - A response that asserts his capabilities after Guren's stated that he landed a cursed spell tag on Mika, then adding whether Guren thought that would even work to deny him any sense of superiority.10
  • “What are you getting at? There’s no way I’ll lose against him.” - Not sure what Ferid means about having a rug yanked under him in his battle with Guren. Mika was unaware Shigure was also preparing a wide area kunai trap in a fight that was never one on one.10
  • “I don’t need your help. I know what their strategy is now. My sword, drink more of my blood” - Rejecting Ferid's offer of help again and knowing Guren's tactics that also included Goshi, Mika prepares his weapon further.10
  • “Are you done talking yet? I want to get this over with.” - Asking if Guren is done speaking to Sayuri regarding cursed gear stimulants.10
  • “I’m not holding anything back from now on.” - Observed by Guren to be faster.
  • “You shouldn’t taunt someone stronger than you, it’s not smart!”10
  • “Another reckless human, what annoying pests.” - His reaction to humans coming close without seeing this one, and his words on Yu’s voice after not seeing him in four years.10
  • “If you so much as try to lay a finger on him, I’ll kill you!” - Livid and grabbing Ferid's neck when he suggests using his blood to turn Yu into a vampire.11
  • “I’m not surprised you’ve made new friends. You’ve always been such a kind soul.” - Fond thoughts on Yu as Mika sees him with new people around him.11
  • “The truth is, these friends you’ve made are faking it. They’re greedy and deceitful, all of them." - Further thoughts on Yu's squad members.
  • “Let’s go. Leave everything behind and escape with me.” - Finally having gained access to Yu.11
  • "You're wrong! They only see you as a tool! Please Yu, trust me. I'm trying to save you before it's too late!" - When Yu feels he needs to stay and help his friends, Mika see them differently, as something to protect Yu from.11
  • “Just forget about them, in the end they’ll betray you and toss you aside.” Mika holds Yu as he beseeches him to leave behind people who are using Yu, in his mind.
  • “It’s true, the humans have been using him all along.” - Mika’s sees his confirmation when Yu is transformed into a one black winged seraph.
  • “No Yu, don’t do it! You’d never be able to forgive yourself!” - Holding a negative view towards humans, Mika endures the sword meant for Shinoa not to save her but because he was taking Yu’s mental reaction into account and suspected he would be troubled if he did.
  • “Shut up human, this is happening because you used him!” - Responding to why he saved Shinoa, disparagingly addressing her as human and holding Shinoa accountable for Yu's altered state.
  • “Don’t you dare touch him. Get your filthy hands off my family!” - Enraged when Shinoa hugged Yu and viewing him as family.
  • “These are the first tears I’ve shed since becoming a vampire.” - Awakening in the curse detoxification chamber after seeing Yu at the city of Shinjuku.
  • “Yu. I swear on everything. I’ll save you." - A promise to save Yu from the humans.12
  • “You were supposed to kill Yuichiro and me. So what are you playing at by letting us live?” - Raising what he heard at the progenitor council meeting with Krul.
  • “If you’re going to end up hurting Yu then I’ll put a stop to this right now!” - Words for his blood benefactor and one of the few vampires he is close to, Krul. Mika does not demonstrate the means of stopping the third progenitor and vampire queen of Japan who sired him.
  • “I understand. I’ll save Yu from the vampires, and from the humans as well.” - Without question accepting a secret mission from Krul where failure would result in him being a traitor to both sides.15
  • “Hello Human. You’re going to answer some questions for me.” - How he speaks to Aihara he has captured in Nagoya, and seeking information on Yu.
  • “Keep quiet. Pretend you’re dead too. You don’t want the other vampires to find out you’re alive. I’ll let you go if you answer my questions truthfully, got it?” - Initiating a ruse with Aihara to gain intel and keep her alive when vampires are attacking other humans nearby.
  • “I’m going to take a different route. This human may have been scared for her life but we can’t take her word alone. Let me borrow five soldiers and I’ll go see what’s happening at city hall just in case.” - With Lacus and Rene headed to the botanical gardens on a false lead, Mika breaks away from them to find Yu reported as heading for Nagoya’s city hall.
  • “That story protected Yu. Maybe you were his comrade. No, you probably just used him like all the others do.” - Unbeknownst to him, Aihara was friendly in her brief interaction with Yu and was a comrade in the joint mission targeting vampire nobles, yet Mika concluded she was using him.
  • “Okay, follow me. Let’s see what’s going on at city hall.” - Directing the five borrowed vampire soldiers under his command.18
  • “No, I’m afraid this is as far as any of you will go.” - Rather than allow the vampires under his command to enter Nagoya city hall to search fro humans to drink from, Mika kills them all instead.20
  • “Now then. Where are you my friend.” - Not discouraged that Yu is not at city hall, Mika retains his goal to find Yu.20
  • “You’re going to give me back my family. No matter what!” - Mika has found Yu, but he is at the back of a huge group of armed soldiers.
  • “This isn’t real! They’re not going to keep me from you!” - Whether recognising the mist or though sheer resolve to retrieve Yu, Mika presses through Goshi’s illusionary magic that shows his legs melting. 21
  • “You’d protect me, because you know that I’m his family?” - Genuinely bewildered that Shinoa squad is protecting him due to his connection with Yu.21
  • “You heard her, let’s move.” - Speaking to Yu as he is unconscious and accepting Shinoa’s escape path with no further hostilities to the squad.21
  • “Can’t fight it. I need blood! The thirst is too painful, I can’t take it!” - A very real physical pain from not having blood.22
  • “No you don’t understand. There’s no going back if I do that. If I drink human blood, even a drop… I’ll be a complete vampire. One who will never age. There won’t be a shred of humanity left in me.” - Part of Mika’s reluctance to drink Yu’s blood, and feeling becoming a vampire correlates with utterly losing his humanity.22
  • “I said no, dammit! I’ve been fighting it so long with everything in my power. I don’t want to be a monster. I don’t want you to see me as some grotesque creature. So I’ve swallowed down my thirst, it wasn’t easy, and now…” - Further hesitations, and resisting drinking human blood for some time. 22
  • “It’s weird right. All of this. Everything, drinking your family’s blood just to stay alive. It’s not normal.” - His words after becoming a complete vampire who drinks Yu’s blood. Mika’s opinion of ‘normal’ in a world of vampires, demons and seraphs.22
  • “Never thought I’d become a real vampire.” - After four years as a partial one surviving on vampire’s blood, Mika didn’t think he would complete the change.22
  • “Oh the irony. I fought all this time because I thought you needed saving. But you’re the strong one, because you have changed in some ways.” - On Yu, his driving force and someone he has seen changes in. When Yu insists he has always been the strong one, Mika is beyond doubt: “No, you used to be a real big crybaby.”22
  • “You may think that but this Guren guy you keep talking about is just using you.” - In response to Yu saying if he has changed it is because of Guren’s training.
  • “What is it?” - He would hear Yu’s favour concerns helping his team mates.
  • “Think about this! You can’t go back to those humans!” - Disturbed that Yu is walking away intending to rescue his team-mates.
  • “Just hear me out first, I’m begging you. Please, Yu. Would you stop worrying about those humans and start paying attention to me?” - Intermittently trying to get Yu’s attention as he focuses on finding his squad.22
  • “I don’t know what kind of awful brain washing they put you through. But I can’t let you go back to the army.” - Mika’s guidance for Yu before he comments on the army: “They’re evil. They’ve been experimenting on you and me since we were just kids.” - Showing an awareness of an “army” that has participated in human experimentation.22
  • “You’re such a hypocrite! You said I had to survive even if it meant becoming a vampire!” - An unnerved response to Yu boldly stating he would rather die than fail to defend his family.22
  • “I think I’ve met the people you are talking about.” - Initially against the very idea, Mika resolves to help and refers to Shinoa squad.
  • “Only your friends. I’ll help the four of them.” - But only those four humans.22
  • “The humans have ulterior motives. They’re using you as a test subject for experimentation. The experiment will have far reaching consequences. And as a result, humans and vampires across the globe are targeting you.” - Conscious that human experiments on Yu have drawn other groups, and aware of powers abroad. With Yu joking, Mika adds: “This is serious. It’s the same experiment that messed up the world. The reason all the adults died years ago. It almost made humans extinct.” - And he possesses knowledge of that world ruining calamity.22
  • “No Yu, we didn’t do any of this. We were innocent kids who were being used.” - Alleviating Yu’s concerns, and not having him shoulder the blame for the momentous transgressions of others.
  • “The Hyakuya Orphanage where we lived was nothing but a laboratory. After it was gone, the Japanese Imperial Demon Army took over the experimentation. The experiments called “Seraph of the End” - Imparting the truth to Yu and knowing the history of these two factions.
  • “Humans are such ugly creatures. They’re animals driven by greed, only concerned with making themselves stronger. They’ll hurt anyone to get more power, I can’t leave you in the hands of people like that.” - Ingrained preconceptions about humans and rationalizing them as dangerous, something to protect Yu from. Seriously at odds with his views and own kind-hearted actions before becoming a vampire, and his frame of mind after four years with vampires.22
  • “If the wrong people have you under control they could use you to end this world in a heartbeat.” - A particularly legitimate concern Mika has for Yu, and Mika offers his wish for Yu to “Run away with me instead. We’ll make a new home, somewhere secluded, far away from this war.”22
  • “I told you. We shouldn’t have come, this is a huge mess. Humans attacking other humans, just look.” - Finding the scene at Nagoya airport where Kureto has decimated the surviving Moon Demon Company members with long spiked rods.23
  • “Yeah, they’re not paying attention to us anymore. This is our chance to escape.” - Adding to what Shinya was saying, recognizing the Demon Army and vampires are focused on one another and thinking strategically in a precarious situation involving two hostile armies.
  • “This is what happens when you put your trust in humans!” - A generalisation about humans made in the heat of a tense moment as Mika defends Yu from Guren’s sword. Also Guren is at this point more demon than human.
  • “He’s like a different person.” - His view of Guren’s increased strength. Mika is also literally correct, Guren has been possessed by Mahiru-no-Yo.
  • “This is the end of it all. There’s no future for any of us now. MOVE!” - Taking Yu to safety, aware of what the demon Abaddon’s presence amongst them means. The "MOVE!" part was directed at a Four Horseman of John in Mika's way but he does not give it a chance to move before destroying it completely.24
  • “No, that won’t help me, there’s something about this demon that affects my healing.” - Feeling that Abaddon is the cause of his suppressed healing so drinking Yu’s blood will not help.24
  • “You can save yourself. Look at that thing. There’s no way we can take it down. Your family is in danger. Go save them.” - Resigning himself, Mika issues practical guidance to help make sure Yu is okay.24
  • “More will follow them, hurry!” - Mika does not try and take Yu from Shinoa squad, rather defends them from the pursuing Imperial Demon Army members as they retreat together.
