Sekiguchi Yuu

関口 悠宇

The smidgeon of ki inside him is stable. You may allow him more.
— Sekiguchi Yuu
 
Overview
Despite being one of the most talented healers in the Kansai region, Sekiguchi is reclusive. He only works through referrals, since he can't pose as a human without assistance. His magic ability is almost strictly focused on healing. Privacy is important to him. He keeps a low profile to stay out of the media.   
Goals
Take on a new student. He's getting older and wants someone to pick up the teaching for him, so he can do more in-depth research to combine modern medicine with magic.
The Nakamura family has been his main set of patrons for 3 centuries. They protect him and provide human guises as needed.

'Will eat all the cucumbers in his vicinity, even if they are not his.' Not the cucumbers!!!   His portrait is adorable. <3 I really like the sound of him as a character. It's sad he blames himself when healing is not successful. :(

Hide the eggplant too. (No one has caught him yet snitching those.)   Thank you. I needed something fun there and all the historic ones were not cute at all!   His failures haven't stymied him. They just make him all the more determined to help the next person with the same conditions.
