Byakko no Rangetsu
First Appearance: Onmyou Taisenki (Episode 2)
Known as the most patient of the three Byakko, Rangetsu always had the patience of one of the purest saints when it came to his shifts within in the Neptune Casino as a bouncer and unexpected situations in both his casual and professional life. However, he is also feared for a temper that is only triggered when he is afflicted by a deliberate physical assault. Once the temper is triggered, he will unleash his notorious Bakusaiga Tenketsu upon the assailant, leaving them knocked unconscious outside of the Casino’s entrance or anywhere he is assaulted.
