"What is a heart? Is it the source of our joys? Our love? Or perhaps it's a prison, meant to keep us chained down, away from our full potential... in that case, I know that I must escape the prison that is called the heart... if only I hadn't lost it first..."
Hakujona Kogen is a Independent mage within the kingdom of Fiore. He is best known for using a form of Creation Magic known as Light Make (光作る Hikari Tsukuru), his excelent control over it granting him the moniker of Shining Archangel (輝く大天使 Kagayaku Dai Tenchi), given to him by the Magic council of Era.
Kogen has Amethyst eyes and unkept violet. He usually wears an undone longsleeved lavender shirt, grey slacks, black sneakers, and a black belt. when having to attend a formal event, he wears a white buisness suit, with a black dress shirt, metallic white neck tie, and white dress shoes.
Kogen is an enigma to most people. On the surface, he seems calm, confident, and flirtatious. however, he can also be outragous, arrogant, and just plain silly, often at random times, causing confusion in all who witness it. one example is his insistance that he perfers his history to be multiple choice. in truth howver, he is cold, calculating, and frustrated with his existance. He likes learning truths and secrets and hates it when he is denied that which he wants to know. he wishes to find out why humanity is the way it is, the nature of magic, and for what purpose mages first came into being. He will do whatever he needs to inorder to figure out these truths, and won't regret it.
Kogen was born in a remote village, where everyone was friendly with eachother. His parents gaurded the secrets as to why magic first came into existance and why humanity was the way it was. One day when Kogen was five, while his mother was training him in his Light magics, cultists came and killed his father. When they came and tried to kill his mother before stealing the secrets, Kogen's mother slipped him the tomes on light magic and light make before sending him off with a transportation spell. she then killed the cultists and destroyed the secrets before dieing of bloodloss. When Kogen came to, he was confused as to where he was. he stumbled around until he stumbled back into his town. Once he reached home, he grieved and buried them. upon seeing the secrets destroyed, he vowed to discover what exactly his parents were gaurding and why cultists would want it. however, he was banished from his village due to a misunderstanding, which led village leaders to believe Kogen had killed his parents. from there, he left and started to travel, both in and out of Fiore, searching for answers.

- "Tell me, what is a man without room to grow stronger?" "Perfection." "Really? I call it cowardice. To retreat from power, to run from knowledge, to shrink from potential." "I thought you meant one who had already reached his potential?" "Oh, those guys? They're just men without goals."- Kogen and Jienma discussing man's necessity for strength.
- "If a man has lost hope, he shall fall to fear. But what if he lost fear as well? Simple. He would stumble upon the keys that open the doors of his personal prison, his heart."
- "Everything dies. Leaves fall. Moutains crumble. Clouds whither. Rivers dry. Everything dies, and humans are no exception. You, Purehito, are no exception."
