Thus, he can use his energy to create the large size of Kekkai barriers.
He can also create a double-layered Kekkai to make him even more powerful. Even though he is not the oldest son of the Sumimura clan, the faith has made him its future leader.

Tokine has a sectional holster to carry her four kunai and a Shakujo to perform her duty and fight the enemies better.
7. Gen Shishio
Gen was the youngest son of the Shishio family, so his darling sister, Ryo, always protected and cared for him. Despite being the youngest son in the family, Gen has a serious look. He was born as an Ayakashi Majiri to transform himself into a full wolf-man.
However, he only learned to use his ability when he tried to protect Ryo from bullies. He usually transforms his hands into enlarged claws to fight against his enemies. His complete transformation was triggered by an incident where he thought Ryo betrayed him. However, Gen loses his control when he is fully transformed and attacks his sister.
