Slightly Damned #616 [TS]
Kazai Suizahn is the twin brother of Kieri, also of the Suizahn clan of Warrior Angels. Kazai is noted to be more assertive than Kieri and received the bulk of their parent's attention and praise for his traditional Warrior skills, making Kieri feel like "his shadow". Despite this, Kieri is not bitter about it and she claims the two of them have always been close.
Kazai appears much like any Angel, and is slightly taller than his sister, Kieri. Like all male Angels, his hair is mostly its natural white but with the edges dyed in the color of his magic element (blue). He has blue eyes. Like Kieri he dresses in the standard Water Angel uniform, although he also wears a silver sash across his chest and wears a white buckled belt. He carries his weapon on his back, presumably held up by the back side of his sash. As with all Angels his Water elemantal mark is located on his left arm.
Also like Kieri, he has the distinguishing feature that the back of his hair stands up in two points.
Kazai is described as having a very different personality from his twin sister, and was always praised for being the stronger of the two. In the first few times he appeared in a speaking role, he has demonstrated a more assertive and direct personality whilst being protective and comforting to Kieri. It's especially noticeable when they reunited and he didn't take long to hug his long-lost sister. Kieri has claimed to have a deep familial bond and to have always looked up to him, although she has admitted to feeling overshadowed.
As time went on, Kazai has shown to be exceptionally single-minded when it came to a variety of subjects. He tends to act with baseless instinct, willing to attack anyone he considers an enemy with or without any provocation. He is often quick to assume things are wrong and never seems to admit when he is in the wrong.
Kazai has demonstrated a strangely low opinion of Medians, at least when compared to Kieri, he has asked Kieri why she bothered learning Lingo since "[Medians are] barely better than Demons" and even calling them ruffians. Despite this he is willing to protect them as part of his duty as a Warrior Angel. However, he is not entirely concerned with their well-beings, seeing as he put a superior Angel's orders above them, and a comment made by him implies he doesn't truly care, since the "good ones" would wind up in Heaven. His opinion on Demons is about the same as most other Angels, thinking them as monsters and a menace that needs to be eradicated. Although he appears to be oblivious to what happens around him as he believed that he wasn't responsible for the rock-slide that had occurred while chasing a red Demon, and believes the reason the people of St. Curtis treat Demons like "people" is because of some demonic influence. This can lead to him being hypocritical as while he seems fine with being in love with a Fire Angel like Sanjulo (which would normally be unacceptable, due to the rules disallowing Angels of different elements in a relationship), he won't accept an Angel being in love with a Demon.
Upon first seeing Buwaro and Rhea, he was eager to attack them for being suspicious. Even after learning about them from Kieri, his impressions of them were not swayed, especially when the two "captured" her and brought her to the Demons. Overtime his feelings toward the two, especially as Kieri reacted to how Buwaro was badly treated, seemed to be mixed and confused as up until that point no Demon or Median have acted this way, especially when trying to save him. Seeing Kieri show genuine concern for Buwaro, especially after learning she was cursed like him, has eased him enough to assist her in helping the Demon. He still doesn't fully trust him and was willing to attack or threaten him when approaching him or his sister, but will let him be if Kieri wills it.
Kazai appears to take a great amount of pride in his warrior lineage, seeming to take little interest in academic pursuits that he didn't see a combat application for. He never learned Lingo himself, as he hated to study, which is one of the many reasons Kieri worries how he is doing since they became separated. This tends to lead him to over-exaggerate whenever certain details are brought up, as he mistakenly calls animals different names, never remembers the names of those he fought and has no understanding on mental conditions. He will also heavily boast about his various exploits, such as his "battle" with Broxis the Wolf, by trying to sound like he accomplished a great deal in his endeavors even if they do not reflect reality. Only Kieri seems to see through his lies.
When it comes to his sister, Kazai seems to believe to have her best interests in mind or that they are meant to be a great team. But he seems unable to listen and/or comprehend her own feelings or desires regarding their status as warriors; and though it might be implied he's aware of the abuse Kieri's been through, or even knowing about her depression, it hardly ever changes his mind on things. Nevertheless, he seems eager to try not to upset her and (possibly after losing Sanjulo) doesn't want to be separated from her.
Like Darius Elexion, it appears that Kazai has an preference for men given how he acted with Sanjulo during the Spring Flower Festival. At first, like Darius, his sexuality was not directly stated within the comic but confirmed by Chu, though eventually he would confess his love for Sanjulo within the comic. Because of how Heaven is set to force Angels to follow certain customs, including that they must only love those of their respective element, this would likely be the first time he goes against their teachings if it means being with the one he loves. While it's unknown how deep their love would have gone as neither of them were shown to have treated each other the way other characters in relationships have (inside and outside the main story), he did show major grief toward him after he was slain.
Kazai shows signs of being a self-righteous narcissist, in that he never admits himself to be in the wrong despite any evidence that contrasts with his assertions and his habit of saying things without even thinking has gotten him into trouble more than once, especially when he made a very hurtful comment to his sister that implied how her new friends could ever love her. Although he instantly regretted what he said and tried to apologize, Kieri's decision to walk away from him and ignore his words left him in tears but he quickly grew angry, implying he's shifting the blame away from himself. He has a habit of hearing only what he wants to hear and refusing to compromise his world-views or accept something that challenges what he feels is right or wrong.
Powers and Abilities
Water Magic: As a Water Angel, Kazai mainly specializes in this school of magic. So far he has displayed the common ability to conjure up water and freeze it immediately after.
- Freeze: Kazai is able to freeze any water source that either he conjures up through magic or from the natural environment; he first demonstrates this by freezing Tsavo's snout for a short period long enough for him to be freed from his grasp.
Holy Magic: The very natural magical ability for all Angels, Holy Magic uses light to damage their enemies (especially on Demons) and even heal. Kazai has shown to use it on a few occasions and seems to have little skill in using it.
- Holy Blast: Kazai can unleash a blast of Holy Magic with his hands. With the Moon Emblem its potency is increased further compared to his sister's, however it is not strong enough to counteract a powerful dark spell from a Berserk Demon.
Curse Form - Wolf: At some point in time, Kazai was cursed by Broxis the Wolf, which can cause him to change into a white wolf. However unlike Kieri's transformation, it seems Kazai's isn't instantaneous as parts of his wolf form would show while maintaining his Angel appearance. He would grow fangs at first, then a tail and then his hands would become paws. When fully transformed he resembles a white wolf with blue eyes, while still wearing the sash and belt around his chest. It appears that this form is triggered whenever he gets stressed or overemotional, as whenever he gets angry or starts to panic his curse form shows.
Pole-arm Weapon Specialist: While he has yet to display his combat capabilities, it is to be assumed he is very proficient in wielding pole-arm weaponry, as his preferred weapon.
Multilingual: Kazai is capable of speaking in both Lingo and Angelic.
- Basic Lingo: Unlike Kieri, who studied in learning the language well, Kazai has a hard time grasping the words; often mispronouncing or using the wrong terms for creatures or things he doesn't know about.
Overall Abilities: Kazai is very gifted for his age, having acquired two of the three Angel Emblems by the time he reached the age of 15 while showing considerate skill as a Warrior. His parents, who are both Seraphs, have always considered him to be very talented and it would have some effect when in a real fight. However, when against a Demon like Tsavo, even when fighting as a team he can be overwhelmed; either as a result of inexperience against an actual Demon, or due to having been cursed by Broxis since without being able to control it effectively he can convert into his wolf form after taking a major hit or from letting his emotions take hold.
Holy Water Halberd: Kazai possesses a halberd, in which the design is seemingly based on the Elemental Affinity Symbol for 'Water'. The blade is shaped like the top of the symbol while the pole is narrow and colored blue.
- Flight: The Angel Wings that come from wearing the pendant are large enough where he can fly and be able to carry one person.
- Enhanced Concentration: While active a halo appeared over his head which allowed him to perform high-level spells.
