飛影, Hiei of the Evil Eye, Hiei Jaganshi
Hiei is one of the shortest characters at only 4 feet 10 inches not including his hair. He wears a white headband that conceals his Jagan Eye which is placed on his forehead and has a purple iris. His eyes are reddish in tint very large and slightly slanted giving him in the beginning of the series a very sinister look. He normally wears a black cloaklike jacket and pants with a black and on occasion blue undershirt. His hair is black with a blue tint and usually spiked with white highlights on the front. Hiei wields a sword which he can use both as a combat weapon and as a way to safely channel the dark flames from the underworld which he rarely uses as he finds it quotbarbaricquot. On top of a very well muscled frame he has high speed accuracy and precision. Hiei is a male fire demon born to a race of female ice demons. His mother Hina is forced to abandon him because koorime prohibit male children. Hiei is taken in by a group of thieves and he learns to kill at a very young age. Throughout his childhood his one shred of sanity is a necklace made from his mother039s hiruiseki ice tear stone. He eventually loses the necklace in the heat of battle. In order to find the lost hirui Hiei acquires the Jagan. He uses the Jagan to seek out the place of his birth and learns that his griefstricken mother committed suicide Hiei also learns that he has a twin sister Yukina who has disappeared from the village. He now has another goal to search for Yukina. Hiei is aloof elusive and misanthropic often belittling and mocking humans and their emotions. Although relatively taciturn he occasionally squabbles with and insults his teammates especially Kuwabara but deep down he holds a certain amount of respect for him and vice versa. In fact Hiei respects all his teammates but seems to be closest to Kurama and Yusuke. Hiei prefers to work on his own agenda and has a notorious reputation in Demon World as a killer even when he was a D Class demon. Despite this deep down he is a loner that wants true friendship and companionship and is very honorable always keeping his word.
