Appearance Takuma is one of the taller male students in the Night Class, possessing a lean and thin frame. He has ash blonde hair that is kept in a rather unkempt condition like a majority of the male Vampires, and he has forest green eyes. His skin is rather fair but still a bit more tan compared to other of his colleugues such as Senri. On most occasions, he is seen sporting the Night Class uniform which consists of a black collared dress shirt under a white, black striped, eight buttoned blazer and a red tie. Along with this are white slacks and shiny black dress shoes which is customary of a male Night Class student; otherwise, he is shown wearing a much more laid back attire. Like all of the Night Class students, Takuma is described as being beautiful. 1000 years later, Takuma has aged considerably, resembling his grandfather; though his hair is more loose. He also requires a cane to walk. Personality Takuma appears very un-vampire like with his cheerful, enthusiastic, and caring demeanor whether it be towards humans or vampires. However he is also very capable of being deadly and determined when the situation requires. His constant smile and upbeat attitude, even in dark or painful situations, sometimes make it difficult to tell what he’s really thinking or feeling. Kaname grew up in his house and as a result,Takuma understands and is more comfortable with him than most vampires. He seems to understand the burden that being a Pureblood can be, and is not particularly reverent or afraid of them. Takuma is also clever at mentioning the flaws or negativity of Kaname's character or decisions without angering him, and is the only one who can name Kaname without honorifics. In school, he took his roommate, Senri Shiki, under his wing and looked after him, becoming quite close to both him and Rima Toya as a result. He is very loyal to his friends and will protect and stand up for them no matter what. Although Takuma usually possesses a carefree attitude, it can be shown that he understands complicated scenarios with an air of maturity, though occasionally showing an immature side. Takuma's hobbies are reading (manga, mysteries, dictionaries), playing rakugo, and performing tea ceremonies. Hia fondness of books lead him to run his own bookshop 1000 years later. Takuma is a master when it comes to tea, something that both Kaname Kuran and Sara Shirabuki seem to like. He likes his rose tea with rose jam. History The Ichijo family is the highest family of the vampire aristocrat families. Takuma's father is an actor and his mother is the head of a flower arranging (ikebana), Asato Ichijo (the former head of the Vampire Council), who had also raised him as well as educated him. Plot His grandfather asks him to spy on Kaname, but he refuses out of loyalty and attempts to break free of his grandfather's mold. Takuma attempts to protect the possessed Senri Shiki, forced to go against Kaname in order to protect all his friends. Following Shiki's freedom from Rido's possession, Takuma has rejoined Kaname's side, where he appears in time to stop Kaname from killing his grandfather and instead insists on being allowed to handle the issue. It is strongly hinted at that Takuma intends to end his life along with his grandfather, saying "Together, let us pull the curtain on the Ichijo line." But it is revealed that he never got his wish, as he was discovered unconscious afterward by Sara Shirabuki, one of the only known Pureblood vampires, who said that she always wanted "to have" Takuma, as though he were simply a doll or a toy. He is currently in the hands of Sara Shirabuki, who is torturing him to extract information about Kaname. After the one year time-skip, he seems to be living with her and is quite healthy physically. However, as time progresses, he starts to lose his luster. The smiling, cheerful Takuma that was shown in the beginning is now a lot more serious and stern. He seems to be more distressed as he sees the terrible things that Sara has been doing. It seems that she is using his name and face to control 'The Ichijo Group' in the background to get what she wants. He also sees that she is keeping humans locked away, forcing them to agree to let her turn them into vampires. He vows to stop her as soon as he gets the chance. While it can be speculated that while their relationship was all right in the beginning of the year time skip, the more he sees of her cruel behavior, the more he distresses and wants to leave. It can also be speculated that she has used her Pureblood control to keep him where he is or tell him what to do. After Sara Shirabuki was killed, it is left unknown where Takuma is after that. Later, it is shown that he is with Kaname Kuran when he asked Zero to join Kaname and Yuki with tea, as well as with Senri and Rima before the tea, talking to them. During the fight with the Purebloods, Takuma helped the Hunters fight against the Purebloods and the other vampires. It is also proven that Takuma was known as the "acacia honey" haired guy who watched over Kaname's Ice coffin throughout the 1000 years. 1000 years later, Takuma runs a bookshop. He checks in on the cafe the revived and amnesiac Kanama runs. After hearing hia story about how he lacks memories and is debating over to look at photos of the past, Takuma notes Kaname is having depressing thoughts again. Powers & Abilities Like all other Aristocrat vampires, Ichijo has accelerated healing. His vampire power is to disintegrate matter to a molecular level, which is to break up or explode the form of anything he wants. He is also very talented with the katana sword, showing swordsmanship.
