Background/History: Tessai is the largest of the Eight Devils, with the power to transform into a rocklike state that is resistant to swords, shuriken, and similar attacks. He carries an enormous throwing blade capable of cutting through entire trees with ease. He is quite violent, even for a Devil of Kimon. As an interesting side note, Tessai means "made from iron."
Personality/Motivation: Tessai's disadvantages are pretty self explanatory. He kills without a second thought, believes his armored body is impervious to just about everything, and tells Kagero "A dead girl might make an interesting lay....".Interestingly enough, he seems rather obedient to orders from his superiors (Himuro Gemma and Yurimaru).
Quote: "Just be quiet and you'll live a little longer."
Powers/Tactics: Aside from his massive strength and sheer size, Tessai possesses the ability to make his skin impervious to weapons of all sorts. It takes about a Phase to do this, as his skin darkens and hardens into a rocklike texture. Tessai's strength also allows him to use an most unusual weapon, a throwing blade resembling an airplane's propeller, consisting of two blades joined by a handle in the middle. Although Tessai can use this weapon in hand-to-hand combat, it's true power is revealed when he throws it, as it's size and speed allows him to mow down entire groups of people in seconds. He must roll to hit each target when he does this.
Appearance: Tessai is huge. He looks to be easily 8' tall and is massive, his body bulging with muscles. A good idea of his size is shown by the fact that his hand is large enough to cover Kagero's face. Tessai is bald, with a thin beard along the bottom of his jaw. His skin is dark but not exceptionally so. When transformed to rock-form, his skin becomes dark gray, as well as gaining a "pinched" look as his body develops ridges and sharp points. Originally, Tessai is shown wearing hakama (trousers), with a short-sleeved kimono (robe) and a kataginu (sideless vest). Later, he is dressed only in green hakama.
