Main Characters


Shakugan no Shana Shana

Shana is a Flame Haze, and the scarlet-eyed and red-haired female protagonist of the series. Known as Enpatsu Shakugan no Uchite (Flame-Haired Crimson-Eyed Hunter). She first mistakes Yuuji Sakai, the male protagonist, for a Torch, a human with a dwindling life force. She soon realizes that Yuuji is not just an ordinary Torch but a Mystes, a Torch that has a Treasure Tool inside them, and becomes curious about him. She assumes the identity of Yuuji's recently deceased classmate in order to keep an eye on Yuuji. Shana is hailed as the most powerful Flame Haze and feared by most Tomogara (Crimson Denizens). She wields the Nietono no Shana, an offensive-type Treasure Tool in the form of a Japanese long sword (nodachi) which Yuuji named her after. Shana also has an affinity with fire allowing her to use flame in combat and even to fly. She can also manipulate the power of existence. Unsurprisingly, Shana possesses a high level of intellect, and is extremely athletic as well.

At first Shana sees Yuuji as nothing but a lowly Torch, and is cold towards him, referring to him as "it" or "thing". But later on she begins to warm up to him. She can sometimes be harsh and indifferent towards people, especially Yuuji, often telling him to "Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!" (Shut up!, shut up!, shut up!) every time she feels annoyed or embarrassed. This is really because she is naive about socializing.
Shana also has a fondness for sweets, her favorite being melon bread. Throughout the course of the series, Shana begins to see Yuuji as a person and slowly opens up to him and later shows affection towards him.

But Yuuji developed an optimistic view of his life and does not seem too disturbed with the idea that soon he will just disappear and everyone would simply forget about him. Luckily for Yuuji, he is not just an ordinary Torch but a Mystes, a Torch with a Treasure Tool hidden inside him. He possesses the Reiji Maigo ("Midnight Lost Child"), a Treasure Tool that restores a person's Existence every day at midnight. Yuuji is a caring and kind person who puts others before himself.

Fecor is the gatekeeper of the Seireiden. He is the Crimson Lord in charge of Seireiden's Defenses, and serves as Bel Peol's right hand man. He treats Bel Peol with utmost respect and courtesy. Fecor has the trademark physical attributes and characteristics of a typical demon, with horns, tail and bat wings making him capable of flight. He possess a Treasure Tool called Trivia which he uses to detect enemy invasion and also as a form of long distant communication. Despite his weak and timid appearance, he is a very Powerful Crimson Lord and can use the Power of Unrestraint called Magnesia, a very powerful defensive spell which is highly renowned as an indestructible barrier. Though its primary function is mainly for defense, it can also be use for offense by firing a hail of cubes causing a significant amount of damage. He can even manipulate its size to crush his opponents.


Shakugan no Shana Zarovee
Zarovee was the partner of the wandering Crimson Denizen Bifrons. Zarovee's appearance is that of a harmless old man who often puts a smile on his face. He is weak and prefers to stay away from anyone who he sees much stronger than him, and often worries about the outcome of his missions. He introduced his self to Yuuji in Misaki City during his recon mission, stating that he means no harm to Yuuji, though the same could not be said about the city. Despite having the ability to create five replicas of himself, they are still relatively weak and prove to be combat inefficient. It is stated that each replica only possess powers equivalent only to that of a Torch. Though lacking with the necessary combat capabilities, his clones proved essential to their mission as both a diversionary tactic and as a means to signal Bifrons to attack from a distant. Zarovee also stated that despite covering only a small area with his Fuzetsu due to his limited Power of Existence, he can however maximize it by using his replicas.
