Ryuusei Tatsumichi (Western order), his surname meaning "path of the dragon" and given name meaning "clear sky in Ryuukuu (Okinawa)", which might refer to an onmyouji's ability to predict (and sometimes influence) the weather. The second character in his name (晴) is a reference to his ancestor Abe-no-Seimei (安倍晴明).

Representative of|代表:
Onmyoudou, literally translated as "the way of Yin and Yang", which is a traditional Japanese practice of divination and cosmology.


Onmyoudou was first documented in the 5th and 6th centuries. Ryuusei himself appears to be between 20-22 years of age.

Brief personality|人格:
Ryuusei is said to be the most talented onmyouji the Tatsumichi family has ever seen since the days of Abe-no-Seimei and Ashiya Douman, and he’s known to be a child prodigy with an IQ of almost 170. Because of this and his family’s insistence on pampering him he’s rather cocky, arrogant, and really just a big spoiled brat. He’s said to have an extreme prince complex and becomes very irritable when not getting what he wants. Naturally witty and sharp-tongued, he also comes off as quite sarcastic and snide.

He’s very ambitious, unlike most of his family members who go with a policy of playing it safe, especially when it comes to shikigami who can be unpredictable and temperamental, capable of turning against their masters in the blink of an eye (as seen in the incident of Ryuusei’s mother). Ryuusei completely disregards this and, since childhood, has developed a tendency of taking on powerful ayakashi as his familiars. The reason behind this, which he hasn’t told anyone, is because he feels a sense of achievement from defeating those who are strong; he sees no use in shikigami who easily yield or voluntarily take up service to humans, seeing this as detestable. Perhaps because of this compulsively competitive behaviour, he went on to attempt to “tame” the infamous Shuten-Douji, the most powerful of the Three Great Evil Youkai as a shikigami.

It’s not known whether it was because even he, in the end, was not powerful enough to handle Shuten-Douji, or because he had been spoiled, pampered, and left in isolation too much, or because his demon side was beginning to corrode his humanity away, but as Ryuusei grew up, his mind slowly fell to pieces, leaving him in a highly unstable state. He became increasingly paranoid, possessive, clingy, and started to show obsessive-compulsive traits.

Brief physical description|外観:
Ryuusei has a fairly unusual, distinct appearance. A natural albino, he has neck-length snow-white hair, reddish eyes and skin so delicate and fair that it seems translucent. He’s considered to be quite handsome with a lean, toned body (as onmyoudou often requires physical prowess as well as mental and spiritual), long, slender legs, a “pretty boy” face, a musician’s slim, dexterous fingers (he plays fue (flute) and biwa) and, due to his albinism, little to no visible body hair. As such, some people have commented that he looks slightly feminine-- to which, of course, he’d knock out whoever made said comment.

On some occasions he’ll be seen wearing a classic onmyouji uniform consisting of a white kimono with red lining and red ribbons threaded through the sleeves along with a pair of darker wine-red hakama, tabi socks and wooden sandals, but his preferred combat gear is slightly more unusual; a short black vest fastened with red Chinese-style buttons, fur lining the collar and detached sleeves patterned with red chrysanthemums, his abdominal area left exposed to reveal his musculature. Underneath this he wears a red and white obi-like belt decorated with braided cords to secure the detached kimono skirt and form-fitting black trousers. He also wears shin-length black boots with steel insoles, guaranteeing that if he kicked someone they’d likely end up in the hospital and black gloves that only cover his fingers (somewhat like reversed fingerless gloves) to protect his fingers from being scorched when summoning demonic fire.


Brief history|歴史說明:
Onmyōdō (陰陽道, also In'yōdō, lit. ‘The Way of Yin and Yang’) is a traditional Japanese esoteric cosmology, a mixture of natural science and occultism. It is based on the Chinese philosophies of Wu Xing (five elements) and yin and yang, introduced into Japan at the beginning of the 6th century. It was accepted as a practical system of divination. These practices were influenced further by Taoism, Buddhism and Shintoism, and evolved into the system of onmyōdō around the late 7th century. Onmyōdō was under the control of the imperial government, and later its courtiers, the Tsuchimikado family until the middle of the 19th century, at which point it became prohibited as superstition.

In the 5th and 6th centuries, the principles of yin-yang and the Five Elements were transmitted to Japan from China along with Buddhism and Confucianism. Yin-yang and the Five Elements, as well as the divisions of learning to which they were linked – astronomy, calendar-making, the reckoning of time, divination, and studies based on observation of nature – were amalgamated into fortune telling. This process of judging auspicious or harmful signs present in the natural world was accepted into Japanese society as a technique for predicting good or bad fortune in the human world. Such techniques were known mostly by Buddhist monks from mainland Asia who were knowledgeable in reading and writing Chinese. Over time demand from members of the imperial court who believed that onmyōdō divination would be helpful in decision-making made it necessary for the laity to perform the art, and onmyōji began to appear around the middle of the 7th century.

From the Heian period onward, as the ritsuryo system relaxed and the Fujiwara family rose to power, the society of the Imperial court took on a more formal shape, and adherence to rituals to placate the souls of the dead (御霊信仰 Goryō Shinkō) to combat the creation of vengeful ghosts (怨霊 onryō) burgeoned. Because onmyōji displayed methods that were believed to avert disasters with their skills of divination and magic, the practice afforded onmyōji influence over the personal lives of the Emperor and the nobility of the court. Consequently, popular awareness of onmyōdō gradually spread from court society to Japanese society as a whole, strengthening its development into a characteristically Japanese art.

Personal history|背景情報:

Religious affiliation|宗教:
Shinto, Confucianism, and Buddhism.

Any special powers or abilities|特別な能力:
An extremely powerful onmyouji, his skills almost comparable to those of Abe-no-Seimei, Ryuusei is capable of controlling well over a hundred shikigami at once. He’s got a photographic memory, which enables him to memorise more spells and star charts than the average onmyouji. He is also capable of telekinesis and some elemental magic and he can use demonic fire in his ayakashi form.
