Team Tsukimiya Shion (Election Tournament)
|School||National Knight Academy|
|Light Novel debut||Light Novel Volume 5|
She had already been brainwashed prior to her appearance and her true emotions and personality were suppressed.
She enrolled in the Magic Division of the National Knight Academy just recently. She was assaulted by Hayashi Shizuka and brainwashed as well as given Divine Protection that allowed her to regenerate magic power. It was due to this brainwashing that she became a candidate for Chief Student Council President, facing Mikogami Daizen in the final match of the first round of the Election Tournament. Whichever team won faced the team led by Yumeno Shiori in the final match of the second round and was defeated. After her elimination she was among the 10 students who attacked Hayashizaki Kazuki and Hoshikaze Hikaru on their date in the park. He was able to free them from control and they were taken into custody by the Knight Order for investigation. But in the end Kazuki’s word wasn’t enough evidence to arrest Hayashi.
Volume 5 Edit
Prior to the finals a series of exhibition matches were held allowing the eliminated teams to show their skills again. In the end Magic Division President Otonashi Kaguya and her Vice-President Hikaru (who many had thought would end up being the strongest candidates) faced off for third place. Hikaru had never defeated her rival and that held true even in this team battle. The final match was held between Kazuki and the team led by Mibu Akira, which had been infiltrated by foreign spies trying to assassinate him. Despite the danger Kazuki displayed incredible skill and won the tournament, making quite an impression. Hayashi escaped while Katsura Karin was captured and Kazuki managed to reform her and won her loyalty. Over the following week the candidates campaigned and on the day of the election all 16 sat in front of the student body waiting for the official tally. In the end Kazuki won by a wide margin and delivered a speech focusing on unity between the two schools.
A few days later news reports stated there had been a massive coordinated strike on all Knight Order posts in western Japan by a mysterious force including mysterious Illegal Magicians. All of western Japan had now been conquered by this unknown army. Western Japan declared itself an independent nation called Yamato which would follow the Japanese Mythology. This made it appear that they were an authentic Japanese independence movement. But the fact that many members of their leadership were suspected of being on China’s payroll, and that they were allied with Loki, made it clear that wasn’t true. Kazuki later called the students into a meeting. At the request of the Knight Order he would be leading a volunteer force of skilled students to reinforce the border. Thanks to an information leak, they were almost wiped out during an ambush on their way to the front lines. Feeling the need to make a surprise attack without tipping their hand to the enemy, Kazuki led only the students on a raid behind enemy lines. This assault became Japan’s first victory in the Civil War and went a long way to establishing his reputation as a leader. Hayashi was taken prisoner in that raid but later committed suicide in her cell. It isn’t stated if Shion was a volunteer.
