A character of Lost Canvas, Tokusa (トクサ Tokusa) is Crane Yuzuriha's younger brother. His soul was awakened as one of the 108 Specters by Thanatos, hence becoming Heavenly Skillful Star, Hanuman Tokusa ( 天巧星ハヌマーンのトクサ , Tenkōsei Hanumān no Tokusa). He is probably the Guardian of the Planet Neptune in the Lost Canvas but there is no definitive confirmation.
Background & Personality
Little is known of Tokusa's past, except that he was a disciple of Altar Hakurei's, with his sister Yuzuriha and Shion of Aries. The god of death, Thanatos, appeared before him and offered him power and eternal life by becoming a specter of Hades, to which he should end the life of his loved ones. Tokusa accepted and killed his parents, making it look like an accident. The people of Jamir believed that he too had died but could not find his body, but soon he went to his sister to complete his "mission" of killing his loved ones, being Yuzuriha the only one remaining from his family. Yuzuriha decides to confront him, but Shion does not want her to carry the burden of having killed her beloved brother for the rest of her life, and is involved in the battle. At first Tokusa surprises with its newfound power but Shion is replenished quickly, and after deciding that he is not the old friend Tokusa they knew, but the evil with which it had gone away from Jamir, destroys him with his technique Stardust Revolution. In his last moments he is embraced by his sister, though he does not want to stain her with his blood. As the last member of her clan, Yuzuriha decides to tattoo the emblem of her family in the arm with the blood of Tokusa.
Hanuman is the famous Hindu monkey god. The Ramayana says that Hanuman was actually a powerful incarnation of Lord Shiva, which was manifested on earth during the period of Rama, an incarnation of Vishnu, to assist in their tasks. Hanuman appeared as a vanara (humanoid ape) and minister of the king of vanaras, having been one of the great heroes of the epic. He was responsible for the discovery of the captivity of Sita in Lanka, the burning of the city and the annihilation of several important rakshasas of the tribe of Ravana.
The Guardian of Neptune?
Tokusa is possibly one of the Eight Guardians of the Planets, it's not confirmed but he's depicted among the Specters chosen to be the Guardians by Alone but he's never shown during the battles inside the Lost Canvas, but one of the Temples (Neptune) has never been shown and this hints that he may be the guardian of that temple.
Skills and abilities
- Sekishiki Nyoi Reirin (積尸気如意霊臨 Sekishiki Nyoi Reirin?, literally means "Praesepe Departed Soul Summoning"): Because he was trained by Hakurei Altar, Tokusa also has the ability to control spirits. Similar to Sekishiki Meikai Ha, only Tokusa uses the spirits with his cosmo concentrate for simultaneous firing powerful blasts that destroy all that is.
