Himari Noihara is Yuto's powerful guardian and a demon in her own right. She takes on the form of a cute and curvy, sword-wielding cat girl, with her ears and tail always standing erect. She is fiercely protective of Yuto and becomes his personal bodyguard when he is attacked by malevolent spirits.
