Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Nine is a young man with short, spiky blond hair and a scarred face. He wears a disheveled uniform of the Academy and wields a long spear.
He is impulsive and straightforward, viewing the world in black and white and only feels satisfied when things are not complicated. Although he has a foul mouth, is not exactly wise, and is considered stupid by fellow classmate Queen, his courage boosts Class Zero's morale on the battlefield.
Nine is a young man who is a member of Class Zero, a group of students from the Peristylium Suzaku, the Magic Academy of the nation of Rubrum, that fight the invasion of Rubrum by the Milites Empire. As part of the resistance operation "Operation Apostle", he and his comrades seek to become the Agito, a messiah prophesied in ancient mythology to appear at the time of Finis, an apocalyptic calamity.
When Kurasame first introduces himself to Class Zero as their new instructor, Nine immediately expresses his dislike of him and that they will only listen to Arecia. Kurasame slaps Nine into a nearby wall, fueling his rage and prompting him to rush forward and attack Kurasame a second time, but the teacher again throws him aside with ease. Cater and Ace both come to Nine's defense, but are overpowered.
Nearing the ending, when Nine and his classmates were on the verge on dying, he seemed to be more calm about it, and is in fact not afraid of death as he felt that it was a manly act.
Fellow classmates Rem and Machina's actions would later result in Arecia removing the four crystals from Orience, allowing those who perished in war, including Nine, to live their lives peacefully. Like many of the male students, Nine has feelings for the female instructor Emina Hanaharu. But after what is speculated to be a confession to Emina is consequently turned down due to her having a boyfriend (revealed to be Izana Kunagiri), Nine is seen taking out his anger by throwing his spears while feeling dejected and upset.

Nine wields a lance in battle, and has an accessible close-range aggressive and powerful battle style resembling that of a Dragoon. His style is similar to that of Queen, however with more emphasis on strength. His basic attack is called Lance. He can spin it around to attack and is good with critical hits.
As mentioned above, Nine possesses a Dragoon-like build. His HP pool, defense, and attack damage are incredibly high, making him an ideal tank during boss fights or a good partner for long-ranged characters such as Ace, Deuce, Trey, and Cater while they dish out damaging spells and attacks.
However, Nine's tank-like build is offset by his low MP pool and magic defense as well as speed. His attacks often have a delay, which means timing is extremely crucial for him. As such, players should keep in mind to keep Nine safe when facing magic-based or quick enemies.
