Deishu Kaiki (貝木 泥舟)Deishuu Kaiki (貝木 泥舟, Kaiki Deishū) is a conman specializing in fake apparitions.
Kaiki has a very gloomy personality and subscribes to the view that there is nothing in the world that is inherently true. The only absolute in life for him is money, due to its value in providing anything he wishes that isn't readily irreplaceable. A schemer at heart, Kaiki has an opaque mind to outsiders. He is fluent in the arts of lying and subterfuge, so his reasoning behind what he says is constantly blurred. He explains his name as "Kai" like a mound of clam shells, and "Ki" like a dead tree.
Kaiki is an individual who prides himself in having no pride. He openly admits to being a conman and an imposter amongst other things. But this is to his advantage as someone who deceives with wordplay extremely well. His interactions with others are very fluid, and he is willing to give and take in order to maximize the outcome, or cut his losses, in his favor.
Kaiki is a fake specialist who knows about paranormal creatures, but does not believe in them, so he prefers working as a conman by manipulating those who believe in apparitions or just using his knowledge to make money by fooling people.
