Hyakuya Sect

Mikaela Hyakuya

Mikaela Hyakuya is Yūichirō's best friend and "family" since they were eight years old. Yu calls Mika by his shortened nickname, "Mika". Mika immediately welcomed Yu into their family when he was dropped off at the orphanage. Yu initially refused Mika's friendship and even challenged him to a fight which lead to him getting beaten by Mika. Even after that, Mika brought Yu into the family, and even related his parental abuse.

After the virus killed the orphanage director and the vampires took custody of the Hyakuya Sect, Mika and Yu looked after the younger orphans, eventually creating Yu's "family." Yu and Mika once discussed what they would do if they left the vampires' city, Yu saying that he would like to go to paradise and Mika then smiling and saying that he should work hard, leaving Yu confused. Later, it reveals that Mika had been going into the 7th Progenitor's (Ferid Bathory's) home to offer his blood in order to steal a map and gun to escape.

Mika convinced Yu and the rest of the orphanage children to come with him to escape the city through the Ferid Bathory's house, but is killed while doing so. Yu was the only survivor and was haunted by his family due to him running away after they were slaughtered.

It turned out that Yu was, in fact, not the only survivor, when Queen Krul saved and converted him into a vampire. However, he refused to become a complete vampire and subsisted on Krul's blood to keep his thirst at bay.

Mika obsessed over Yu for the four years he had been turned into a vampire, while Yu believed that Mika was dead and distanced himself from other people to refrain from losing them like he did his families.

After Yu joined the Moon Demon Company, he met Mika once more after he tried to kill him from behind after discovering that a vampire wanted to take one of his comrades. However, when he realized that it was Mika he stabbed, he pulled out immediately and was in complete shock and confusion. After realizing that Mika was converted, he retreated back with the Moon Demon Company and searched for ways to turn a vampire back into a human.

Mika saw Yu once more on the battlefield after forcing information out of a soldier about Yu's location. However, he spotted Yu unconscious after his battle with Crowley, and thought it to be the humans' doing. He immediately rushed ahead to take Yu from his group, but got severely injured while doing so. When he was about to die, Shinoa Shiragi and the rest of her squad defended him while he took Yu away.

After Yu woke up, he saw how thirsty Mika was even after Krul's blood, and encouraged him to drink his own. Mika put up a fight against it, protesting all the way through, but he gave up after Yu claimed that he could not live if he watched his family die once more. After he finally drank Yu's blood, his eyes turned from blue to red, signaling that he has finally become a true vampire. Throughout the argument, Mika was blushing.

Mika's seemingly only reason to live was Yu, and would go to any depths to protect him, even if it meant holding a sword to his throat. Yu felt the same about Mika, but had a larger family he must protect and begged Mika to accept his new family.
