|7||Volume 4 Page 209||Volume 4|
|Natsume Shin||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
Fighting style: Natsume Goshin-ryu
Special Abilities: The Dragon's Eye. The Dragon's Eye allows Shin to basically understand the flow of all "ki" around him, and to predict the future based on that. It seems to be best for the short term, allowing superhuman fighting ability as he can sense an opponent's moves well before they would normally be apparent. Longer-term prognastication is apparently possible as well, although it might only be confied to seeing flashes of future ominous events. Age: 17 (18?) at death
Girlfriend: Kuzunoha Mana
Family: Younger sisters Natsume Maya and Aya
About Shin: Shin was a dark person from the point he touched the ceremonial sword Reiki for the first time and his Dragon Eye ability awoke. Shin was always ripped apart betwen his deep love for his sister Maya and his concern about his friends at Toudou Gakuen.
(Contributions by Dark_Harlequin)
Oh! Great speaks: (From TJTG UJ Special.) He was supposed to be a character that would tell the tale of, and in some way explain, the Dragon's Eye power that Aya now has, but became a more human character through the creation process. While I was thinking of what sort of mind-set a person that has seen his own death would have, he made me thing again about how I viewed those things with the though: "Wouldn't anyone, in the end, forget that everyone has to die, and just try to keep on living?"
|7||Volume 4 Page 192||Volume 4|
|Master Toudou||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
A teacher at Toudou Gakuen - quite a surprise when Bob and Nagi first saw him. They didn't even know there were teachers at the school...
He is on very friendly terms with Natsume Maya, and tries to support her when possible.
|6||Volume 4 Page 81||Volume 4|
|Nagi Makiko||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
Special Abilities: She can use the Dragon's Fist, but it has cost her dearly. She only has one arm, and a patch covers one of her eyes.
Family: Nagi Souichirou is her son, and she might have at one time been married to Kago Souhaku Jyouun
|5||Volume 4 Page 72||Volume 4|
|English Teacher||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
A teacher at Toudou Gakuen. I'm not actually sure that he is the English Teacher, but that is what I have been calling him.
Apparently, he used to be a student at Toudou Gakuen himself, and is quite the fighter.
|5||Volume 4 Page 99||Volume 4|
|Kanekita||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
Fighting Style: Kendo
Position: Member of the Kendo club
A member of the Kendo club who was sent to take down Bob and Souichirou.
He looks suspiciously like a Kappa (a type of Japanese turtle-headed monster.)
Bob and Souichirou manage to defeat him, and he isn't seen again.
|4||Volume 4 Page 85||Volume 4|
|Takayanagi Dougen||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
Family: Father of Takayanagi Mitsuomi and Masataka
Current position: A standard businessman office worker
Description: We don't know much about Dougen at this point. He lives with Masataka in a small apartment.
About the Takayanagi family: (From TJTG UJ Special.) The Takayanagi family controls the top of the Japanese Martial Arts world. I don't know the details but it has been this way since ancient times. They say that the heroes of ancient myths and legends were the Takayanagi ancestors, but that is just the prevailing modern interpretation. They are a family of charismatic heroes, and the descendants of the families that came to their aid are the 12 Founding Families. They have been careful to keep their lineage pure since the ancient times so they are the same as back then. For that reason, the Takayangi family and the 12 Founding Families have a sort of counter-measure relationship, and you can say that the Takayanagi family is representative of the 12 Founding Families. But the Takayanagi's fundamentally have stronger abilities due to their direct relationship to the heroes of the past.

|Ryuzaki Tsutomu||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
Ryuzaki has a very funny comic relief appearance, while convalescing in the hospital.
CMX is going to really have to pull out their censors for this one.
|2||Volume 4 Page 107||Volume 4|
|Girl||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 4|
A generic character for an unknown young female speaker.
In this instance, a bunch of school girls are trying to get Masataka's attention, and they appear to be quite smitten by him. He seems (strangely) oblivious to it...
