"Yeah, there's no way this idiot would be liked."
Akane Teruhiko (アカネ＝テルヒコ) is a soldier of the Novus Orbis Librarium, formerly serving for the student council in the organization's Military Academy. He was the former roommate of Jin Kisaragi and Taro Sasaga'e, and now serves the NOL as a member of their Ars Magi division.
Akane is a short young man with bright blue eyes, pale skin, and auburn hair that he partly keeps tied. In the Academy, he wore a white shirt with sleeves that stopped at his forearms and a sleeveless Academy jacket. The jacket was blue, and similar to a suit jacket. Instead of wearing the red cravat that most students wore, Akane wore a yellow ribbon around his collar.
In the NOL, Akane wears the jolting sapphire NOL uniform to signify the division of military he serves under. He wears the blue NOL poncho over a white shirt and red tie. In this outfit, he also wears white trousers.
Akane has a sharp tongue, being critical of those around him, especially Taro. His words do not usually seem to indicate any ill intent--likely because of their close friendship. He is very aware of his surroundings, making it difficult for people to do things around him without him catching notice.
Generally speaking, Akane works hard because of his position on the student council, but is much more relaxed than Jin is.
Powers and Abilities
Unlike his roommates, Akane is never seen fighting. Shiori noted him to be especially sharp, however, making it difficult to get close to Jin without him noticing. He was also one of the Ars Magus users that were gathered by Cypher who have a high aptitude.
