Another concept has come, and I've heard compliments and criticism about Takahata. The compliments being that he's "unique" and the criticism that he had too much passive power. Well, I do hope that he'll be well liked. I wanted him to have a presence in Ionia than being a champion on the Field of Justice, so... -TakaHann

Throws an apple into the air, and as it falls, draws and "cuts" the apple with inhuman speed. Apple, intact, drops to floor. As he sheathes his sword, the apple opens up into equal slices.
"I’ll perform a thousand strikes...before you can even blink."
"Here’s an apple...and this is what will become of you."
Draws blade, and attempts to take an intimidating stance. But as the blade comes near his face, Takahata looks at the bloody blade and is repulsed. He immediately cleans it with a cloth.

Takahata stands firmly without a single sign of distraction.
Takahata steps back in pain, still standing. After a few moments of standing still, he falls backwards.
Takahata’s Fading Blade has a special animation, where if used to dash backwards, he’ll twist his body as he slashes around, in contrast to where he would normally just slash around as he dashes forward. He will also face “backwards” if he dashes in this way.
Takahata is not only well-known among his fellow Ionians, but also with the denizens across Valoran, for being a top-class master of speed and defense. Many of the champions have even fought with him, but this was on many occasions due to his request to understand their way of battle, their beliefs and their goals.
Takahata has good relation with each of the people who originate from Ionia, even those who are despised by many. This has allowed him to gain mutual trust with them, although they also make mutual bounds so that they wouldn’t betray one another. TBA
