Suzaku Himejima is a member of the Himejima clan and current inheritor of the sacred beast the Vermilion Bird.
Suzaku is a beautiful young woman with long purple hair and red eyes. She has a slim and voluptous figure and was noted to have a strong resemblance to her aunt, Shuri.
Suzaku is elegant, gentle and soft-spoken. She is also extremely kind-hearted and compassionate as she lament the ancient system of rules and traditions of the Five Great Families which has for years brought great tragedy and suffering to its own members, such as the estranged Hanezu and Kazuhisa. Having lost her aunt Shuri who was executed for her love with Baraqiel and her cousin Akeno whom was scorned and exiled for her Fallen Angel heritage, Shuri's death and Akeno's banishment had made Suzaku resolved to reform the system of the Five Great Families to prevent future tragedies. After Shuri's death, Suzaku became strongly protective of her family members even towards distant relatives that she has never meet before such as her cousin Tobio. In Volume 3 of Slash Dog Suzaku swore to Tobio that she will protect him from the Himejima Clan's discrimination and persecution towards him for his ownership of a Longinus and to convince Suou and the other members to accept him as their family.
