Upon reaching maturity, it is an important tradition for a Tsukikage family member to create his own style and variety of Air magic for battle. While Karasu's brother had chosen the Gale's Path, an aggressive form of Air magic which has been previously used by their grandfather, Mikan Tsukikage, Karasu opted to creating his own path based on his mother's very own Sky's Path magic. Unlike the fueled by anger nature of Gale's Path and ultimate form of manipulation achieved by Sky's Path, Karasu has been able to perfect his Storm's Road over the years to the point of being capable of exceeding both although it is only a speculated observation by the hunters he has faced and defeated. Storm's Path is based on the principle of hurricanes and tornadoes, to gather unrivaled force of power around a calm center. This makes his Path extremely balanced in terms of strength and flow, which worries his brother and his grip on the Tsukikage family.Infinite Atmosphere
A technique which is learned in the Storm's Path, Karasu is able to absorb, create and disperse the air around him for his benefit. This allows him to easily manipulate Wind magic and create new skills for battle. Gravity Shift
Another technique which is learned in the Storm's Path, Karasu is able to form dense walls of air by forcing them into a certain point of his body and releasing them. This allows him to manipulate air currents and even create new ones to further increase his effectiveness in battle, giving the illusion that he is 'floating' outside of the laws of gravity rather than flying. The most important aspect of Gravity Shift is how it is applied by the user, as it could easily be used as a weapon as it can for increasing manipulation over Wind magic.Hurricane Tunnel & Limited Express
Through the principles of manipulation in his Wind magic gained from the Storm's Path, Karasu is able to literally gather and concentrate a large amount of air into his hands in a short amount of time. When gathered, he can release it in a circular motion with his hands to create a small tornado in any direction to crush his enemies. He can also manipulate the attack further with his body movements and other means. An infamous skill which he displays along with Hurricane Tunnel is the Limited Express, where he can ride the insides of the Hurricane Tunnel and use for gaining an advantage in battles or as a quick escape.Air Line
A technique created from the Limited Express, Karasu is able to create a 'solid' line of air under his Glider board to travel in air at high speeds.Hurricane Barrage
A modified version of the Hurricane Tunnel, Karasu is able to gather an insane amount of wind into his Hurricane pistols and fire bullets which travel at near supersonic speeds. When fired, the wind around the fired bullet are easily disrupted by its speed and pressure which can rip apart anything that gets in its way, even fire magic. This makes his attacks extremely effective against large sized and large amounts of foes. Another interesting effect of Hurricane Barrage is that fired bullets have a high chance of disrupting electrical magic with the heat produced from the 'friction' created by the two different layers of air around the bullet.Reaper's Whirlwind
With the Whirlwind scythe equipped, Karasu performs a constant combination of slashes around him to create the Reaper's Whirlwind. Reaper's Whirlwind is extremely dangerous for those who need to get up close in fights, as it can tear them apart into shreds with the sharp 'blades' formed by high pressure winds that surround Karasu when he decides to use the attack.Air Graveyard
A massive circular storm is created by Karasu to surround him and provide the ultimate form of isolating himself from enemies in battle. Inside the storm however, Karasu is at a disadvantage as there is very little amounts wind for him to manipulate hence its name, Air Graveyard. Dead Wind / Null Wind
Dead Wind or Null Wind, is an advanced form of Air Graveyard which got its name from it ability to trap foes inside a high pressure air space and crush them into dust within minutes. It is also rarely used because it uses up a high amount of energy and easily causes fatigue for Karasu.Moondrop Meteor
Applying the principle of Gravity Shift to his attacks, Karasu forms a large wall of extremely dense air into his legs and drops down in a corkscrew towards an enemy from air. The attack causes the air around him to heat up and even let off electrical discharge when air starts to react violently around him. If Karasu has enough height above the enemy, he will turn into a literal flaming meteor and crush anything with explosive force at wherever he lands. Despite its destructive potential however, its disadvantage lies in its requirement of the user being high up in the air before it can be executed.Mooncrusher
A lesser version of Moondrop Meteor, Karasu is able to form a extremely dense wall of air around a body part or his Moonblades. This increases his power and strength, letting him easily take down hardier foes but reduces his speed from the need of getting a constantly balanced center of gravity on the ground for maximum effectiveness. It can also have a chance of producing high pressure 'blades' of air whenever he attacks with his Moonblades and violently pushes an opponent back with and explosion of air whenever they try to strike them, increasing the range, effectiveness and power of his attacks. Tesla Bomber
An extremely unstable and experimental technique based on the possibilities of gathering electrical discharge from the atmosphere displayed by his previous attacks, Karasu creates an Air Graveyard over the enemy and compresses it into an invisible tornado of powerful pressure both on the outside and the inside. The pressure violently reacts with the different air around it and creates an insane amount of electrical discharge. The tornado eventually turns into an electric blue from the absorption and explodes into a field of lightning on the enemy. However, it is near impossible for this attack to succeed unless Karasu can find a large amount of static electricity in his surroundings such as storms or even industrial generators.Appearence
Karasu has stands at exactly 6ft short cropped dark hair with a slight stubble on his chin. He wears a checkered scarf of fuchsia and black, a black bowler hat, along with a black double breasted suit with bronze buttons, a purple dress shirt on the inside and a pair of black pants. On his left hand where he wears his rings, the letters S T O R M are imprinted on his finger nails. On his right hand, the letters L I V E are seen along with the black print of a swallowtail butterfly on his thumb.Weapon(s)
Before he was thrown out, betrayed by his brother and labeled a wanted traitor, both his brother and him were given a set of three rings by their mother. These rings were given to members of the Tsukiage family when they had managed to finally perfect their paths. Although they seem to be ordinary accessories, they are actually enchanted items which are used to summon weapons to battle with only mere will.Moonblades
A pair of large blades which resemble the shape of crescent moons. The blades are pure white in color, giving it an eerie glow whenever he strikes at his enemy. The blades are made of a mixture of pure silver and Moonstone or Lunium, an ancient and mysterious stone which seems to empower anything it is made with by absorbing moonlight and harmlessly radiate it to weaken the effects of sunlight. A pair of dark purple gems are seen on the hilt, accessories which are the last reminder of his mysterious father. The same gem is seen on the ring used for summoning them into battle and is pure white in color like its blades.Hurricane
A pair of modified lever-action rifles which have been shortened down to the size of pistols. The Hurricane Pistols are magical in nature and form bullets by gathering the respective elements of its user and compressing it into shape. Due to this, the bullets fired by Karasu are able to easily pierce through most elemental barriers if they are weak enough, excluding fire magic which swallows up wind with ease. The ring used to summon them is colored a metallic gold with a a pair of small square black stones arranged on top of each other.Whirlwind
A large menacing scythe infamous for its destructive power and deadly speed when used by Karasu. The Whirlwind is actually a large 8-feet long staff in its inactive form, jet black in color with red wave patterns etched into the Lunium it is made with. When activated by a simple command or will from Karasu, a large curved blade appears at one end. The blade is purple in color, is made of pure magic and vibrates at high frequencies to add to its cutting and slashing power which make the weapon extremely effective against the strongest of armor. The ring used to summon the Whirlwind scythe is completely black in color and has a blood red gem.Vehicle(s)
:A red Honda Fury
, has the words "Welcome to NightMare" stenciled on the back in black and white with a laughing skull at the end.Glider
At first glance, the Glider board appears to be made of several plates of Lunium compressed together. What most don't see are the two turbine fans which are hidden under the board, ready to be propelled when Karasu forces air through the bottom of his feet. This allows him to create an alternate form of transportation and take battles to a new level. Personality
Karasu is in many ways, an eccentric man but remains a happy one nonetheless with his positivity. Behind his smiles, playfulness and good nature however, lies a man whose life has been destroyed into oblivion in pieces. He is a cynic although a positive one and is convinced that God himself has made a huge mistake in creation. Despite being hunted and wanted by his brother, framed for betrayal to his family and hated by many for his ideals, he remains calm and thinks of everything like a game. He also enjoys taunting his opponents, especially his brother and is an extremely efficient fighter. Although most can't seem to believe it, he has made it clear to those who know him that he wants to help the Humans fight against the three powers of evil which stand in their way to freedom and a better future.
"If God doesn't want to help us, I will help them. Fighting is the only way to ensure that this world will change.
Many respect him for his intelligence as much as they hate him for it, proven by the many breakthroughs, creations and strategies he has made in the past. His part in the Elemental Wars once involved manipulating two rivaling vampire families to join him in his effort to fight against the opposition, which lead to their uniting into one combined family of three different names. Now however, control is no longer his but his brother's. He does not blame Toshuei for betraying him and would rather enjoy the freedom he has at the present. His brother however, does not believe that Karasu will give up power over the Tsukikage family so easily and continues the bounties on his head although it is mainly out of guilt, regret, anger and jealousy.Quirks

Born into the powerful family of Tsukikage Vampires, his family was trapped between a power struggle of two rivaling families. The Tsukikage family remained neutral in the matter and took no sides as they were already the strongest among the three with their amazing Air magic. Instead, they were more intent on protecting themselves and making sure that the family would avoid crumbling from internal affairs. At the time, Karasu's mother, Hatoha Tsukikage ruled the family with a silver fang and held respect as a powerful woman who displayed her graceful destruction on the battlefield. That was until Rinta arrived.
Rinta, Karasu's mysterious father, was a prideful man who fell in love with Hatoha when they met at a formal banquet. Gentlemen and ladies alike laughed at his attempt of introducing himself to Hatoha but were soon surprised when he received the honor of kissing her hand. Hatoha was impressed by his bravery and soon, they began seeing each other. As futile attempts to please her continued to pile up, Hatoha herself began to think that Rinta was useless after all. But then he vanished and Hatoha found herself missing a part of her life, slowly falling in love with him in his absence. A year later, Rinta returned and appeared inside her bedroom with a ring in hand, a thousand guards pointing their Lunium spears at his heart and a surprised Hatoha. She accepted it and they were soon married.
When Karasu was born, he was not alone. He had an older brother named Toshuei Tsukikage. Due to the fact that Hatoha was of a pure Tsukikage blood and Rinta was not, their names stayed the same and Rinta was still the same monster she was. As time passed however, rumors began to spread inside the family where jealous uncles would secretly say that Hatoha had lost her touch and had fallen into the hands of a seducer of women. Hatoha took no notice of such idiocy and continued her reign but Karasu's brother was angry, how dare they said such things about her mother? It was all that Rinta man's fault now wasn't it? And Karasu, he was only a stupid measly part human who didn't even have wings!
One night, Karasu was discovered bleeding to death at the back of their mansion with a path of destruction that went straight through the forest and towards him. Trees were tore off their roots and the ground had been scarred excessively. But still his mother loved him and praised him for his survival, especially when he didn't tell that it had been his brother who had attempted to murder him. Toshuei laid in his room that night with fists clenched at the fact that he didn't manage to kill that little bug completely. He was also afraid at the tornado that had been shot at him out of anger, but missed when Karasu realized it was not worth it. His fists clenched tighter, angry that he had been mocked.
He would get it one day, he promised himself. Then, he would reign over the family himself and show his power. Years passed and Karasu was given power over the family when their mother retired and their father long dead. She was exhausted now and felt weak without her love. Toshuei, now tall and strong, complained and insulted her for her decision but was slapped in reply for what he said about his half-brother. He walked out fuming and as he made his way down the stairs, the smiles of his distant uncle and a few friends greeted him with a conspiracy in mind.
Hatoha is now dead.
Karasu is no longer in power.
And a new day begins for the Tsukikage family.
However, two storms will soon meet.
Lightning and thunder will clash.
Rain and winds will come.
One peaceful and one full of hatred, only then will things be resolved for good.
