Personality

Above all else, Mei is defined by her desire to be seen as mature and respectable. Having lost her family at the age of 5, Mei grew up alone and under the control of Souichiro Unomaru, leaving her without friends or a positive influence to learn social skills. As Mei worked hard to master Magic, she developed a lot of pride in herself that would lead to her being defensive in regards to anything she feels would undermine that. Ironically, Mei’s insistence on her maturity actually shows her to be incredibly immature since she is prone to violent outbursts or hurling insults whenever someone annoys her. Unfortunately, she has a very wide range of things that can trigger this reaction, from Touya Kagari’s constant apologizing to her being unwilling to admit she is unable to swim. This seems to be something of a knee jerk reaction as Mei will insult people and run away even when they are nice to her, and she has admitted after the fact that she didn’t want to do that, but was unable to come up with a proper response to kindness. As she continues to spend time with others, she starts to see them as friends and opens up more. This allows her to occasionally show a softer side that cares for their wellbeing, although she will sometimes follow that up by claiming her concerns are purely pragmatic.

While Mei started out as cold and demeaning towards most people she met, she had a particularly strong hatred for Kuon Glamred Stroheim. Mei assumed Kuon to be a pampered princess without real skill as a Mage. This opinion was colored by her longstanding hatred of the Magic Guild as a whole since it was responsible for the downfall of her clan and her currently difficult life under Unomaru’s thumb. However, after Kuon was able to fight her to a draw, Mei apologized for her dismissal of Kuon’s skill, realizing Kuon had worked just as hard as her. Despite them continuing to insult and mock each other, this marked the point where their relationship changed from open hostility to a good-natured rivalry.

Additionally, Mei hides a dark secret that she never wants to be discovered by anyone. She is an otaku with a love of anime and tokusatsu. It is an interest that she thinks is embarrassing and childish so she will hypocritically make fun of Kuon for being a casual fan while she in fact is much more knowledgeable about the subject and is something of an elitist in criticizing others’ preferences.

Powers & Techniques

As an Exorcist, Mei is skilled in the use of Ying-Yang Magic. She has a variety of charms and talismans uses to cast her spells such as healing charms and the Goofball Proximity Surveyor. She can use her magic to enhance one's physical attributes, such as giving Es the strength to jump up a large building to catch Hinata and can even make herself fly. One of Mei's primary means of attack is her Shikigami Raven spell, which can immobilize anything it touches. The spell has a variant that can home in on an opponent and even dodge incoming attacks, but can only be used if Mei stands still to focus on it. She also can use the more powerful Shikigami Tensoushojin.

Additionally, Mei has knowledge of Lightning Magic, letting her fire blasts of electricity. She can unleash a barrage of attacks with Shikigami Thunderstorm or unleash a single powerful blast with Rise Thunder Beast.

Having been fighting Unions since she was 10 years old, Mei has accumulated a large amount of combat experience, making her an intelligent fighter. While she is not skilled at hand-to-hand combat, she is capable of defending herself from close-range attacks, being able to block Kuon's surprise kick.

Being a descendant of the Azure Shrine Maiden, Mei possesses the ability to sense the Azure, although at a much lower level than her ancestor. This allows her to hear a Union's Discover Call.

In the Mei Route of XBlaze Code: Embryo, Mei allows Sechs to turn her into a Union. This gives her the Drive Blood Cain, which is capable of sealing the power of the Origin of the Grimoire.

XBlaze Code: Embryo Character Report

Mei Amanohokosaka

Grudgingly works with the Mitsurugi Agency. The scion of the Amanohokosaka clan, she has been hunting Unions since she was a child. As a result, she is far more mature than her peers and often has problems relating to them. She practices a unique form of magic which she primarily uses to obtain information, though she will occasionally use her powers in combat. Due to the machinations of the Magic Guild, her clan had to give up their possession of Takamagahara (the Legendary Lands). What resulted was the Wadatsumi Incident and the death of Mei's mother, and the start of an intense hatred of the Magic Guild and its members. [2]

Since the events surrounding the Embryo, she has taken over the Mitsurugi Agency's anti-Union operations, so her life hasn't really changed all that much. [3]
