Appearance[edit | edit source]
Little is shown of Genji, though from the ghastly and subtle appearance he makes, his characteristics are that of a demons.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Though not much is known of Genji, he is quite unhinged and spiteful, caring little for both the lives of civilians or his own clansmen, willing to wildly flaunt his power without regard for human life or his own, using cheap tricks to get the advantage. His blatant blood lust lead him to force his Weissman Level over its limit, causing a Damocles Down with the intention of causing a chain reaction of Kings and destroying the country.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
- The name Genji means "mysterious" (玄) (gen) and "show" (示) (ji).
- Genji's surname Kagutsu means "sword" (迦) (ka), "ingredient" (具) (gu) and "capital" (都) (tsu).
- Kagutsu (迦具都, Kagutsu), is derived from Kagutsuchi (迦具土, Kagutsuchi), the deity of fire, pertaining to the fiery imagery associated with HOMRA. Kagutsuchi's mother, Izanami, died of severe burns after giving birth to him; furious, Kagutsuchi's father, Izanagi, slayed him using his totsuka sword Ame-no-Ohabari (天の尾羽張, Ame-no-Ohabari).
