Mutsumi Tamura (Young Kojou)


The Main Protagonist of story. He is Nagisa Akatsuki's brother and the childhood friend of Yuuma Tokoyogi. He appears to be a normal high school student except for the fact that he is the fourth primogenitor, the world's strongest vampire that should only exist in legends. When a middle-school girl named Yukina Himeragi is sent from the Lion King Organization to observe him and to eliminate him if he seemed dangerous. He cannot seem to remember how or why he became the fourth primogenitor and he'll get an intense headache whenever he tries to remember the event.

Yukina stated that there's no way that an ordinary human could randomly become the fourth primogenitor and Kojou himself couldn't remember any traces of the incident. There is no doubt that he is a powerful person, when he gets aroused through smells or awkward sexual situations, his vampiric urges take over and his eyes turn red. He can stop the urge by taking some of his own blood whenever he gets a nosebleed. His nosebleed constitution seems to be inherited from his mother, Mimori Akatsuki who has an easy blood flow. Koujo is revealed to be immortal, even by vampiric standards after regenerating from complete decapitation by Rudolf Eustach.



Kojou is a young man with dark silver hair and blue eyes which turn red when he is either aroused or angered. He is usually seen wearing the Ayami Academy school uniform which consists of a white button up shirt and black jeans. He also wears a blue under shirt and a white hoodie which he wears up both day and night. Since he is a vampire and tends to avoid daylight, he has smooth and fair skin. Kojou has well-toned muscles, and is described as attractive.

He has silver-blue hair in the anime and the manga.


Kojou is a kind person, who goes out of his way to help others. He is also an intelligent, sly and carefree individual. When angered, Kojou becomes quite fearsome adversary. Kojou has strong charisma which has attracted the attention of both admirers and allies, allowing him to sometimes befriend his enemies. Kojou is shown to care and worry about his sister a lot. He is however generally oblivious to the romantic feelings that others have of him.


Kojou was a normal human until he first met Avrora the 12th Kaleid Blood and became her blood servant, a pseudo vampire. Since then, he spent his daily life with her but those days didn't last long until she ordered him to destroy her and became the fourth primogenitor. In addition, he lost his memories regarding the incident and the days they spent together. However, he later regained some portions of it after fighting Giada, the third primogenitor disguised as Avrora using the No.14 Grimoire in attempt to recover his lost memories. He fully regained his memories alongside Asagi after Yukina performed a ritual on them.


He first met Yuuma when he was trying to retrieve Nagisa's hat which was stuck on a branch at the end of a cliff. He looked for Yuuma at her regular spot where she used to hide and watch both siblings everyday and asked for her help. Without waiting for a respond he quickly grabbed her hand and got back the hat together. However, after they did so Kojou nearly fell off the cliff only to be saved by her, he later thanked her and said that she's pretty strong. A while after everyone introduced themselves. He first met Motoki and Asagi during middle school.

He first met Avrora at Fairy's Coffin. Kojou used his body to protect his sister and Avrora from the terrorist attack leaving him on the verge of death. Avrora admired his courage and turned Kojou into her blood servant. Avrora ordered him to destroy her alongside "Root" and chose him as their (the 12 Kaleid Bloods) successor.


Despite being laid back, he has repeatedly shown to be quite smart, clever and a quick learner, although these traits are not usually shown because he usually tends to charge without thinking, but he can be impressively logical, deductive & tactical.

Enhanced Vampiric Abilities: As a vampire, he possesses supernatural strength, speed, senses, reflexes, dexterity and durability. In addition, due to being the Fourth Primogenitor, he has incredible power far above that of most vampires and is virtually immortal.

Familiar Summoning: Kojou has twelve familiars which is a manifestation of his vampire's powers. Initially, these familiars would not fully obey Kojou and would often go on rampage. This is due to the fact that he refuses to drink human blood and thus, they would not acknowledge him as their master. However, he is able to control his familiars and summon them properly once he drinks blood. It is revealed that Kojou is still lacking three familiars inside him, one of them is the 12th that lies inside Nagisa while the 6th and 10th still have their Kaleid Blood bodies. They are currently in Oceanus Grave II under the custody of Vatler. Everytime Kojou releases new familiar, he says the following chant:

I, Akatsuki Kojou, successor to the blood of "Kaleid Blood", now release your constraints. Come ....(number and name of familiar)

"カレイドブラッド"の血脈を継ぎし者暁古城が汝の枷を解き放つ疾く在れ ...(number and name of familiar)

"Kareidoburaddo" no ketsumyaku o tsugishi mono, Akatsuki Kojō ga, nanji no kase o tokihanatsu. kyagare ... (number and name of familiar)
