RACE: Elder humanoid yokai
AGE: 2,400+ human years (appears mid-20s as a human)
DATE OF BIRTH: August 8
CLASS: Theriormorph, salamander affinity (possible dragon sub-species)
ALIGNMENT: True Neutral
HUMAN-YOKAI RELATIONS: Extremely hostile
DESCRIPTION: 6' 4" tall with tough, muscular build. Bright yellow eyes and messy, mid-length dark-brown hair. Wears "pants" and a "vest" made from what appears to be fine obsidian fibers woven into a rigid mockery of cloth.
Spoiler: Salamander FormSkin becomes covered in tough scales; hands and feet gain extra scale plating to form sharp claws. Hair lengthens a few inches and also forms a small comb running down his spine. Jaw protrudes slightly, and teeth elongate and sharpen. Growth of internal pyrocitic vapor sac enables limited fire-breathing capability.
PERSONALITY: Sanji takes immense pride in his forsworn duty to his world and in his innate strength. He regards others with a sense of scorn, born of his possession of power to which no human or yokai in Other-Gensokyo could measure up (or so he boasts).

Spoiler: Spell Cards

- LUNATIC ONLY: Desperate Safeguard [Fulminous Supressor]: Numerous jets of flame break through the ground, surrounding the target and crash down on top of it
LAST WORD: Agony Sign [Cremation of Shinryu]: ---Effect unknown--- (Sanji has reportedly never had to use his Last Word, and no one, dead or alive, can truthfully attest otherwise.)
HISTORY: Arrived in the Nexus after being ejected from his world in a whirlwind of violent magic. He is an old and powerful yokai, rumored to be descended from the dragon gods that once presided over Other-Gensokyo. His primary duty was to protect the Magic Reactor, a massive furnace housed deep underground that only he and his ancestors could safely operate. Though it clearly had some great importance, its purpose and capabilities were closely-guarded secrets, and he repulsed any trespassers with terrifying force.
