A childhood friend of Riku's who (re)appears in chapter 35. He managed to recognize Riku as Suraga and while being hunted down by Takao, he awoke to a Jinki core. He later explains that two months earlier, during the NEFT building fire, a bright light (one of the Jinki cores from chapter 15 that Takao lost against Riku) came crashing towards him. The glowing scar he retained from the incident disappeared the next morning. His core has a scratch causing him intense pain, and he can't materialize a blade, forcing F.L.A.G. to engineer a customized weapon for his own use. Jinki: Unknown (Awakened-Type technically, but the core was originally from another member of NEFT)

His older brother, Haruki Kazama (29 years old) disappeared the day of the hospital fire.
