Why return to the Hollow Night now?"

Seth (セト Seto) is an assassin of the Night Blade and the wielder of the Eliminator who is currently working for an unknown client.

He is one of the twelve characters introduced in the original version of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH.

Background

The Assassin who Wanders the Night

A young boy feared from those who know him as the "Assassin". He appears before certain power users, challenging them to duels, but no one knows why. Or, for that matter, who he is. However, the moment he heard the name, "Princess of the Night Blade", his attitude changed. His emotionless face was no longer so. Since that day, he wanders the town, searching for the princess, not on anyone's orders.[1]

Information

Seth is a 1st year student in the same high-school as Hyde. To some he's mainly known as the "Assassin" (暗殺者).

Appearance

Seth is a teenager with grey eyes and short black hair, although about one-fourth of it is white on the front of his left side. He wears a high-collared double-breasted black coat with a tattered end sticking out behind his right leg, blue pants and black shoes.

Personality

Seth is an extremely serious individual and never shows any emotion beyond stoicism. Although his cold attitude may come off as insensitive, he is greatly burdened by the mistakes of his ancestor and feels that if he fulfills Linne's wish for death, he can redeem his family name and free himself of the past. In Yuzuriha's story, her optimistic way of life despite her family's history briefly causes Seth to question his path and his individuality.

Story

Years ago people within the Night Blade started to think that people should be allowed to do whatever they want to do with their abilities. This resulted a rebellion and internal fighting within the Night Blade - Seth's ancestor was one of these rebels.

Seth has been trying to fix the mistakes Night Blade made in the past, which has led him to lead an aimless existence cleaning up after himself and killing off whatever is within the confines of both his power and his contract. He's aiming to claim the Indulgence of Insulation and remove the "curse" placed on Linne and Kuon using that sword. This would naturally put him at conflict with Hyde due to the weapon being in his possession.

Abilities

Seth's ability is the "EXS of Excavation" (穿鎖のEXS): Kerykeion (ケーリュケイオン).

Seth was entrusted with the Twin Swords: Eliminator (双剣・エリミネーター) from Kuon. The other name of the blades is the Indulgence of Elimination (封滅の免罪符). Their relation to Hyde's sword with a similar name haven't been explained yet, but they are told to have to the opposite power to that of Hyde's sword. Before taking on the two blades, Seth was assumed to have had expertise in a normal pair of daggers during his time of assassinating.

So far, Seth has displayed abilities in moving within the shadows along with basic stealth skills, and is able control a small level of darkness in the form of either creating a mote that fires a stunning arrow or an afterimage. Most of the time he focuses on his agility to be able to cleanly cut down his target(s) with finesse and speed.

Introduction Text

He strays. The whole family's rule and onself's will. It sways in the interval.
The promise with a girl ties. The least recently rusty chain hauled in and stopped.
The promise with a boy severs it. The grey wedge dug in compensation.
It turns into the labyrinth which confuses him a deep night. Is the lamplight to greet visible?

He wanders -- Bound by the will and governing of an ancient family, but his emotions tremor.
The promise he made with a young girl shackles him. In rusty chains he strives to sever.
The Night becomes a labyrinth: impeding his progress.
Will he ever find the beacon he seeks?

He had gone astray. The statute of the family and his own will. He sways in between.
The promise with the girl connects. Drawing the old rusty chain.
The promise with the boy is broken. The dull grey wedge penetrates for the compensation.
Deep nights turn into the labyrinth that deludes him. Will he see the light of acceptance.

  • Seth's name is written in katakana as "Seto" instead of the typical "Sesu". It is possibly as a reference to Set/Seth, the god of the desert, storms, disorder and violence in the Egyptian mythology.
  • The futon he uses to wrap Linne with in his Arcade Mode is apparently the one he sleeps in.
  • Seth's favorite food is fishes boiled in soy sauce, otherwise known as nitsuke (煮付け).
