Personality & CharacterEdit
Skills & AbilitiesEdit
He is shown to be exceptionally powerful, as not only is he capable of delicate magic and skilled in martial arts, he is also capable of taking on all three Makai Knights stationed in Vol City at once and defeats them with ease. Despite his prowess, he rarely sees action and usually serves as Tousei's right hand man, bodyguard and scout, detaching his eye and have it near the intended surveillance targets as a way to enable Tousei to keep an eye on things, especially on Ryuga. Unlike most Madō Horrors, his true form resembles a corrupted Makai Knight armor, capable of sprouting wings for flight and manifest a sword from his armor.
Sonshi was a Makai Knight who was assigned to protect Hakana and her group should they be attacked by Horrors during the ritual. However, due to Tousei Kaneshiro, Sonshi ends up becoming the first of evil human's Madō Horrors while forced to kill two of the Makai Priests while taking Hakana to Vol City.
From the next 15 years, Sonshi played the role of Kensui's attendant to keep the rich man in line while using him as a decoy to keep the Makai Knights from going after Tousei. Prior to formally introducing himself to the Makai Knights, Sonshi played a role in Rui Suzuki losing her family and later tricks Kazami to gather photographic evidence of Ryuga to make him a public enemy. Eventually, when the Makai Knights infiltrate the Kanshiro Institute, Sonshi is driven off by Kensui who reveals Tousei's actions to Ryuga.
Remaining by Tousei's side soon after, murdering Kensui on his master's command, Sonshi is the last active Madō Horror as he ends up getting separated from Tousei by Burai's actions. Though he attempts to return to Tousei, Sonshi is compelled to obey Zedom's command to kill the Makai Knights and offer one of them to the Horror to serve as a vessel. Ultimately, Sonshi is killed in the end of an epic battle with the Garo armor regaining its original appearance. However, despite his death, Sonshi's lifeless body is taken by Zedom for the Horror's use as his new body.
Notes & TriviaEdit
