Appearance and Personality
|“|| He is a foolish person who is unable to discern his own worth.|
He’s like a mad dog. He bites while completely disregarding the difference in his opponent’s strength or the stakes. That sort of universal attacking stance is almost like he believes that he’s the strongest or he must be the strongest.
— Minami informing her opinion of Shippou Takuma to Tatsuya
Takuma is shown to be ambitious yet arrogant and overly passionate. He has a distaste towards the scientific and technological aspects of magic such as the use of CADs.
He harbors strong animosity towards the Saegusa Clan and anyone he believes is supporting them. This causes him to act high and mighty towards Saegusa Kasumi and Saegusa Izumi, which results in conflict between the two sides that tends to lead towards the use of magic.
Even though he is a member of the elite of Japanese magic community and the heir of one of Ten Master Clans, he can easily lose his composure. Figuratively he wears his heart on his sleeve for all to notice, and is quick to anger.
Due to his personality and impulsive behavior, he is shown to easily misunderstand many situations and events.
As the freshman representative, he was invited to join the Student Council an offer which he refused and instead joined the Club Management Group in order for him to focus on training himself to be strong enough to rival the Saegusa Family of the Ten Master Clans.
Takuma is the first male freshman representative for First High School in the past five years. His hostility towards the Saegusa is a personal one not backed by the rest of his family. He was manipulated into mistakenly getting involved in a plot designed to undermine the Japanese Magical Community, believing that he was being helped in raising the Shippou Family's influence and power.
Since Takuma is a descendant of the Shippou Family, he possesses power equal to that of individuals belonging to the other Master Clans. His talent and power is great enough for him to be recognized and groomed to be the Candidate-Successor-in-Training to be the next Club Management Group Leader.
During his entrance exam for First High, he was ranked first among the entire 200 incoming freshmen who were admitted to the school, beating even the Saegusa twins.
