Chiba Naotsugu (千葉 修次) is the second son of the Chiba Family. He is currently studying at the University of National Defense, he is reputed to be one of the finest close combat specialists in the world. A few of his titles are "Chiba Kirin" and "Ghost of the Phantom Blade".
He first appeared during Nine Schools Competition in AD 2095 to visit his girlfriend, Watanabe Mari and check and confirm her steady and proper recovery. Although this visit did elicit a negative reaction from his sister Chiba Erika who never approved of their relationship. 
Appearance and Personality
Naotsugu is described as someone with delicate features, enough to label him a beautiful young man. He has a medium build and is slightly taller than Shiba Tatsuya.
As could be attested by other people around him, his lanky build wasn't that of an athlete, but of someone who has gone through martial arts and combat training.
At one point, it was stated that Naotsugu appeared to be at odds with his fame, given his weak/gentle disposition. Despite Erika's nagging, he's never scolded her and hasn't mustered any defense, save for a few excuses.
➨ Pressure Slash
- A Weight-Type Magic that Naotsugu utilizes along with his short-bladed baton to expand his weapon's range to a length of a long-sword. A magic that uses the metal coil that is extended from the tip of the rod to form a thin repulsion field that can slice through anything it touches.
