Memorable Anime Character: Death The Kid

Name: Death the Kid
Seen In: Soul Eater
Background: Death the Kid is the son of Lord Death, the headmaster at the Death Weapon Meister Academy (DWMA). Because of his father, he doesn't need to attend the school in order to be a meister because he already has considerable power, but he does anyway for personal reasons. Everything in his life has to be symmetrical, from his clothing to his surroundings. He carries twin guns Liz and Patty to keep that symmetry. Despite his attempts at keeping this symmetry, however, he hates when anyone mentions the lines in his head, which only go around one side.
Why Is This Character Memorable? Partially because of his symmetrical quirk, which will keep him from doing anything even in the middle of a fight -- his reaction to anything that is out of whack is really funny. But also because of his sense of loyalty to the other students even though he doesn't have to be there. He's got something to prove to himself, but he's not above helping others even if his father is the headmaster. And he kicks ass when he fights, even unleashing a "Death Cannon" when he needs to.

Tomorrow: Not one, but five space!
