==Biography==
+
Terumi has been described as "absolute evil", with "no margin for sympathy". He is an amoral, sadistic psychopath who lives for nothing more than causing suffering for others and experiencing the joy doing so gives him. Due to his nature as a god, he sees himself as superior to humans, viewing them like insects which he can “play” with for his own sick pleasure.  
Terumi's "birth" was when the [[Susano'o Unit]] gained a [[soul]]. Over time, Terumi grew sick of being shackled to the endless cycle of destruction and creation that he shared with the [[Amaterasu Unit]]. He allowed the Susano'o Unit to be found by humanity and separated his soul from the unit, inhabiting the body of a young man with green hair. He contacted [[Relius Clover]] and [[Shuichiro Ayatsuki]] with the promise of creating a perfect [[Prime Field Device]] - it went haywire and a [[Black Beast]] was created, starting the [[Dark War]]. At some point, he became acquainted with [[Clavis Alucard]] and [[Valkenhayn R. Hellsing]].
 
  
===Dark War===
+
He gives off the impression acting suddenly and without forethought, but in truth, Terumi is a master manipulator skilled at playing a long game to achieve his goals. He is effective at tricking and lying to people and has manipulated multiple organizations into playing a part in his schemes.  
====Phase Shift 1, Phase Shift 2, Phase Shift 3, Phase Shift 4====
 
Terumi lost his body as the Black Beast arose, and demanded to Relius to create him a body. Before the scientist was swallowed by the Beast, he told Terumi that a vessel was inside the [[Magister's City of Ishana]] waiting for him. Terumi managed to penetrate its barrier, creating a body for himself through self-[[Observer|Observation]].<ref>While it is never outright stated that Terumi was self-Observing, it is the only feasible way he could have appeared before Kazuma</ref>
 
  
In time, Terumi found the vessel, [[Kazuma Kval]], and waited in his dorm for the teenager to wake from his sleep. When Kazuma awoke, Terumi introduced himself and asked if he wanted the [[Azure]].<ref>''BlazBlue: Phase Shift 1, Chapter 2 - Cat of Crimson Sunset''</ref> He mysteriously left without much explanation on what the Azure is.
+
Ultimately, Terumi desires nothing more than the destruction of everything his “sister” Amaterasu has created, and wishes to create a new world in his image, full of despair and suffering.
  
Watching as Kazuma interacted with [[Trinity Glassfille]] in the [[Great Library]], Terumi mocked Kazuma afterwards and began to walk back to the boy's dorms with him. He openly mocked Trinity and told Kazuma to not get corrupted into becoming a mage. Terumi told Kazuma that he had to get the Azure by himself and they entered a park. There, Kazuma was assaulted by three [[Half-Beastkin|half-beastkin]], but Terumi nonchalantly sat on a bench and crossed his legs, applauding whenever the student dodged an attack. Instead of helping him, Terumi teased Kazuma until the student promised that he would find the Azure.
+
==Powers & Techniques==
 
+
Although he has a slender frame, Terumi is absurdly powerful, owing to his status as a God. His physical strength is matched only by his strength in the [[Art|Arts]] as he has a complete mastery over [[Ars Magus]] and abilities lying in [[sorcery]]. He can freely move his soul between vessels, possessing them and lurking in their shadows of their minds. Related to this ability is Terumi's status as an [[Observer]] who is a special case - he can Observe himself. This is a technique that is said to be crude, but it allows the user to solidify their existence and remain rooted in existence; Terumi used this against [[Hakumen|Hakumen's]] Time Killer technique and survived when it should have killed him.
[[File:BlazBlue_Phase_Shift_1_Novel_Illustration_09.jpg|thumb|left|250px|Easy encounter]]
 
Rising from his sitting position and grabbing a nearby throwing knife that one of the half-beastkin had lodged in a tree, Terumi smiled. He ran towards the assailants and countered every attack they threw at him, repelling the group. As they retreated, Terumi threw the daggers on the floor, uninterested in them. He separated with Kazuma outside of the boy's dorms and looked over his shoulder, seeing [[Tomonori]] in the distance. Later that evening, Terumi entered Kazuma's dorm and warned him that Trinity was monitoring him.<ref>''BlazBlue: Phase Shift 1, Chapter 3 - Mind of Azure Deviation''</ref>
 
 
 
The following day, Terumi watched as Kazuma was in a cafe with [[Nine the Phantom|Nine]], Trinity, and [[Celica A. Mercury]]. Catching the boy's attention, Terumi jerked his chin and walked onwards - Kazuma ran out of the cafe after him, finding the man near the edge of Ishana. He pointed out a hole in the Ishanan barrier, telling Kazuma that with this he could distract the [[Ten Sages]]. As soon as Trinity and Nine appeared, Terumi disappeared.<ref>''BlazBlue: Phase Shift 1, Chapter 4 - Doubt of Yellow Equilibrium''</ref>
 
 
 
Kazuma had made it to the center of the Ishanan Cathedral, the [[Lost Gate]]. He taunted Kazuma deeper and deeper and asked him to put his hands on the [[cauldron]] beneath. Kazuma's memories came flooding back to him, and Terumi physically appeared - Terumi spoke, telling Kazuma more about his origins as a vessel, and the two's shadows stretched to meet one another. As they began to fuse, they turned to see Tomonori staring at them.
 
 
 
Terumi watched as Kazuma battled against Tomonori and as the beastkin drew the [[Hihiirokane]] to fight them both. Together, the duo summoned a version of the [[Geminus Anguium: Ouroboros]] - Tomonori lost and was viciously killed by Kazuma while Terumi laughed and applauded. A brief while passed and their fusion had become complete, although both were exhausted from the fight. Turning around, they were found by Valkenhayn, who knocked them unconscious and dragged them to the [[Alucard Castle]]. They were locked behind several socery barriers and shackled with binding chains by Clavis. Months passed and Terumi and Kazuma had become mirror images of one another in their isolation.<ref>''BlazBlue: Phase Shift 1, Chapter 6 - Voice of Emerald Evil''</ref>
 
 
 
After the death of Clavis, Nine, Jubei, and Valkenhayn entered the prison. Nine interrogated Terumi, who wildly laughed at her, but fell silent when she used [[Mind Eater (Opprimo Vinculum)|Mind Eater]] on him, turning the God into her slave.<ref>''BlazBlue: Phase Shift 1, Prologue''</ref>
 
 
 
===Ikaruga Civil War===
 
 
 
When the war loomed towards its apex, Terumi saw [[Iron Tager]] entering the area where the Prime Field Devices had been kept. <ref>''BlazBlue Material Collection, Iron Tager Short Story - Trust You''</ref>
 
 
 
===Variable Heart===
 
Lurking in the back of Hazama's mind, Terumi watched as he interacted with [[Meifang Lapislazuli]], the Colonel of the Wings of Justice division of the NOL. Upon being assaulted, Terumi's spirit form lept forth from Hazama's body and began to strangle the Colonel, threatening to cut her to pieces and feed her to pigs should she continue act proudly. Both Terumi and Hazama soon left afterwards. <ref>''BlazBlue: Variable Heart, Chapter 04''</ref> In the [[11th Hierarchical City of Shinatsu]], Terumi, in his spirit form, was asked by Meifang near its cauldron to help her turn into a Nox Nyctores. He agreed to help, noting that she had nearly died. Terumi ordered her begin hating everything; the world; and herself. The plan ultimately failed, and Terumi returned to Hazama and Phantom. <ref>''BlazBlue: Variable Heart, Chapter 18''</ref>
 
 
 
===Calamity Trigger===
 
December, 2199 had come again for Terumi, but he, Hazama, and Relius had resolved to end the looping of time. Thanks to Hazama's manipulation, [[Noel Vermillion]] saved Ragna from falling into the cauldron within the [[13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi]] alongside [[Nu-13]]. Terumi briefly took as the front of Hazama's body, and he demanded that Noel recognize him and his existence as she had become the new [[Eye of the Azure]]. The plan was a success - the time loops had ended and Terumi's existence was Observed. He threw Ouroboros towards Ragna, only for Tager to suddenly appear and block the attack. Having decided he had already had enough success, Terumi left. <ref>''BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger - Part 2, Chapter 5 - Calamity Trigger/Successor to the Azure''</ref>
 
  
===Chrono Phantasma===
+
Terumi has several weapons, the most notable being the [[Nox Nyctores]] - [[Geminus Anguium: Ouroboros]]. Despite being the wielder of this weapon, it is not often that he chooses to use it. Ensnaring opponents, attacking from a distance or messing with the victims emotions are some abilities that the Nox grants. Terumi instead favors his twin balisong knives in combat, often getting into the thick of a fight and using them in vicious slashing motions.
  
{{Quote|Once one of the Six Heroes who defeated the Black Beast, as well as the one who plunged Ragna into despair, he may seem impulsive and shallow-sighted, but is actually quite crafty and clear-minded. Cold and cruel, he truly enjoys "despair" and "destruction" from the bottom of his heart, and starts the Imperator's even worse "banquet of madness."<ref>''BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Official Site (JP), [http://www.blazblue.jp/cp/chara_terumi.html Yuuki Terumi]</ref>}}
+
One of Terumi's many abilities is called Mind Eater, which functions differently to the [[Mind Eater (Maledictus Plaga)]] and [[Mind Eater (Opprimo Vinculum)]], but he is capable of using the latter. Terumi's Mind Eater instead eats away at the memories of the target, taking them away and supposedly placing them into the Boundary.<ref>''BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Story Mode, Chrono Phantasma, Episode 2: Difference of Opinion''</ref> Another ability he passively employs is amplifying his strength according to the hatred that others direct at him - the more intense the hatred, the more powerful Terumi becomes.
  
===Central Fiction===
+
In gameplay, Terumi's [[Drive]] is '''{{h|Force Eater}}''', which functions similarly to Ragna's [[Soul Eater]]. Instead of eating the opponent's lifebar, Terumi's Drive grants him copious amounts of Heat upon a successful hit, and to reflect this, most of his moves are [[Distortion Drive|Distortion Drives]]. One in particular, the '''{{h|Serpent's Cursed Sting}}''', will drain the opponent of their Heat to help fuel the move in question. Terumi's playstyle reflect his personality and relies heavily on pressuring the opponent with the advantages given by his high Heat.
  
{{Quote|Once one of the Six Heroes who defeated the Black Beast. When he saw the transformed world, he muttered "Gotta redo it again?" and began to act in order to bring about the same history as before. His goal is twofold: to destroy the Master Unit, and to obtain a weapon of his own....<ref>''BlazBlue: Central Fiction Consumer Edition Official Site (JP), Story - [http://www.blazblue.jp/cf/cs/story/ Yuuki Terumi]''</ref>}}
+
As well as his overwhelming power, Terumi is supremely intelligent and was partially responsible for the creation of Ars Magus as a whole - had it not been for his assistance, [[Nine the Phantom]] would have failed to create the Art in one year during the Dark War. Terumi's speciality concerns [[seithr]] and the [[Boundary]], but he is also, understandably, the most well informed on the Sankishin. Terumi's intelligence goes further than this as he is a master manipulator who's cunning plagued the background of both the Dark War and [[Ikaruga Civil War]].
  
Terumi barely survived his encounter with Hakumen. The body Trinity made for him died, but he was able to survive through crudely Observing himself, although this method would only keep him sustained for a week at most. He began searching for another vessel.
+
Terumi has a handful of specific weaknesses and is invincible otherwise. He requires a vessel to inhabit since he can only Observe himself for so long when the need arises. He is also weak to the [[Hihiirokane]], a blade that can cut souls, and it is the only weapon that can truly hurt him. Terumi's final weakness is that since he relies on hatred to fuel his strength, there have been times where he has been overpowered by others because they have controlled their feelings towards him, such as Kokonoe.<ref>''BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Arcade Mode, Kokonoe - Mad Scientist''</ref>
  
He found Hazama, explained what had happened, and through him, ordered that Noel go to the [[Kaka Village]] to deal with Ragna. <ref>''BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Episode 003, Chapter 016''</ref> He stayed with Hazama, barely being able to possess him, and watched as Nu battled against both Ragna and Noel. <ref>''BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Story Mode, Episode 004, Chapter 033''</ref> Not long afterwards, he was transported to Ikaruga, and told by Nine that he could obtain the Azure by killing Izanami. Although Hazama had told him that he would search for the Azure himself so they could fuse, Terumi began to search for a different vessel to fuse with, finding that he had outgrown him. <ref>''BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Story Mode, Episode 006, Chapter 043''</ref> Hazama had fulfilled his side of the deal, however, and had gained an Azure piece from Izanami – he told Terumi he wanted to fuse, but to be in control, and he complied. <ref>''BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Story Mode, Episode 010, Chapter 079, Sub Scenario 1''</ref>

Going to the Alucard Castle, Terumi pried open Clavis’ coffin after battling through the [[Prototype Absolute Defence: Blade of Reflections]], which created a perfect copy of himself to fight. Winning, he took the Hihiirokane within, <ref>''BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Arcade Mode, Yuuki Terumi, Act III''</ref> and used to separate himself permanently from Hazama when his former vessel tried to consume him.

He is a cruel spirit who lusts for the destruction of everything he touches, relentlessly murdering and torturing those who cross him. He founded both the Novus Orbis Librarium and Sector Seven and was responsible for the incident that ruins Ragna's life.

Terumi first appeared as an NPC in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger while he possessed Hazama. It was not until BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma that he finally became playable as an independent character.

Appearance

Physically, Terumi's human form looks nearly identical to Hazama, with some notable differences — his hair stands straight up and his snakelike eyes are open. Most of Terumi's clothing in his human form is identical to Hazama's, but, in place of Hazama's black coat and fedora, Terumi wears a long, hooded yellow cloak covered in black markings. The short sleeves of his cloak are large and have engraved metal plates attached to them. Terumi also wears his tie untied.

Terumi's “ghost form” is a simple black-and-green humanoid shape with long arms, a glowing green spot on his chest, and a face consisting of a wide smile and a single red eye. During his Astral Heat, Terumi's ghost form transforms to resemble Susano'o.

In the BlazBlue: Phase Shift series, Terumi wears similar clothing to his human form in the main BlazBlue series, except instead of Hazama's suit, he wears Kazuma's uniform.

Personality

He seems impulsive and shallow-sighted, but is actually crafty and clear-minded. Cold and cruel, he truly enjoys "despair" and "destruction" from the bottom of his heart.[2][3][4]

Terumi has been described as "absolute evil", with "no margin for sympathy". He is an amoral, sadistic psychopath who lives for nothing more than causing suffering for others and experiencing the joy doing so gives him. Due to his nature as a god, he sees himself as superior to humans, viewing them like insects which he can “play” with for his own sick pleasure.

He gives off the impression acting suddenly and without forethought, but in truth, Terumi is a master manipulator skilled at playing a long game to achieve his goals. He is effective at tricking and lying to people and has manipulated multiple organizations into playing a part in his schemes.

Ultimately, Terumi desires nothing more than the destruction of everything his “sister” Amaterasu has created, and wishes to create a new world in his image, full of despair and suffering.

Powers & Techniques

Although he has a slender frame, Terumi is absurdly powerful, owing to his status as a God. His physical strength is matched only by his strength in the Arts as he has a complete mastery over Ars Magus and abilities lying in sorcery. He can freely move his soul between vessels, possessing them and lurking in their shadows of their minds. Related to this ability is Terumi's status as an Observer who is a special case - he can Observe himself. This is a technique that is said to be crude, but it allows the user to solidify their existence and remain rooted in existence; Terumi used this against Hakumen's Time Killer technique and survived when it should have killed him.

Terumi has several weapons, the most notable being the Nox Nyctores - Geminus Anguium: Ouroboros. Despite being the wielder of this weapon, it is not often that he chooses to use it. Ensnaring opponents, attacking from a distance or messing with the victims emotions are some abilities that the Nox grants. Terumi instead favors his twin balisong knives in combat, often getting into the thick of a fight and using them in vicious slashing motions.

One of Terumi's many abilities is called Mind Eater, which functions differently to the Mind Eater (Maledictus Plaga) and Mind Eater (Opprimo Vinculum), but he is capable of using the latter. Terumi's Mind Eater instead eats away at the memories of the target, taking them away and supposedly placing them into the Boundary.[5] Another ability he passively employs is amplifying his strength according to the hatred that others direct at him - the more intense the hatred, the more powerful Terumi becomes.

In gameplay, Terumi's Drive is Force Eater, which functions similarly to Ragna's Soul Eater. Instead of eating the opponent's lifebar, Terumi's Drive grants him copious amounts of Heat upon a successful hit, and to reflect this, most of his moves are Distortion Drives. One in particular, the Serpent's Cursed Sting, will drain the opponent of their Heat to help fuel the move in question. Terumi's playstyle reflect his personality and relies heavily on pressuring the opponent with the advantages given by his high Heat.

As well as his overwhelming power, Terumi is supremely intelligent and was partially responsible for the creation of Ars Magus as a whole - had it not been for his assistance, Nine the Phantom would have failed to create the Art in one year during the Dark War. Terumi's speciality concerns seithr and the Boundary, but he is also, understandably, the most well informed on the Sankishin. Terumi's intelligence goes further than this as he is a master manipulator who's cunning plagued the background of both the Dark War and Ikaruga Civil War.

Terumi has a handful of specific weaknesses and is invincible otherwise. He requires a vessel to inhabit since he can only Observe himself for so long when the need arises. He is also weak to the Hihiirokane, a blade that can cut souls, and it is the only weapon that can truly hurt him. Terumi's final weakness is that since he relies on hatred to fuel his strength, there have been times where he has been overpowered by others because they have controlled their feelings towards him, such as Kokonoe.[6]

Yuuki Terumi

One of the Six Heroes that defeated the Black Beast, and the true identity behind the man who occupies Hazama. Incidentally, he also created the Azure Grimoire, which is what caused the Black Beast's appearance.

He attacked the church where Ragna, Jin and Saya sought refuge, and gravely wounds Ragna in the process. He kills the Sister, and takes Jin and Saya with him, throwing Ragna into a pit of despair.

He might look like a nutcase form the outside, but there is a meaning behind his actions and he is quite clever. We are dealing with a man who simply lives for the destruction and screams of his victims.

During the Dark War, he loses his flesh upon the revival of the Black Beast but is then able to conceal himself in the body of Kazuma Kval, thanks to Relius's careful tactics.

After being restrained by Valkenhayn, he is confined inside the Alucard Manor. But is freed when the Black Beast runs rampant by the hands of Nine, who regards his knowledge to high standards. He is kept under control of her spell.

With his cunning and ability to manipulate people, Terumi pulls the strings from behind the curtains, aiding in the establishment of both the NOL and Sector Seven. Furthermore, he kills or nullifies half of the Six Heroes with his own hands. He is sealed away only at the hands of Jubei and Hakumen…combined. Currently, Takamagahara's system allows him to exist in the human realm, albeit only mentally.

After, he forces Noel, who now has the Eyes of the Azure, to acknowledge his presence, binding his exsistance into the realm as we know it. He has revived, completely.

Since, he still uses Hazama's body, and carries out his missions alongside Relius and the Imperator. But, he is once more torn by Trinity's mental attack using Muchorin's powers.[9]
