Minami Hokutozai (北東西 南 Hokutozai Minami) is a Pre-Petrification human and former reporter before the Petrification occurred. Originally a member of Tsukasa's army before Tsukasa's downfall at the hands of Hyoga's betrayal, she later joins and helps the Kingdom of Science.


She has long hair with seashells in them.



She seems to prefer strong handsome men as she was enamoured with Tsukasa and heart broken when he was cryogenically frozen to save him. Despite this, she has great confidence in her abilities as a former reporter to determine who would be best to revive, whether working for the Might of Empire or for the Kingdom of Science.
