Some Ashikabi involved
SchlulouAdded by Schlulou
Ashikabi (葦牙) are humans with unique genes that enable them to empower Sekirei destined to serve them through an exchange of saliva between Sekirei and its Ashikabi, which is usually done through a kiss, thereby resulting in a "winged" Sekirei with who an everlasting bond is forged. For many Sekirei, the reaction is one of deep love and fondness. If a person is an Ashikabi they can forcefully wing Sekirei against their will and make them their "slave", but this goes against the theory that the Ashikabi's power is the power of fate (Takehito Asama, Seo Kaoru) and thus the only Ashikabi seen to forcefully wing Sekirei were Higa Izumi and Hayato Mikogami.

The power's of an Ashikabi increase with the amount of Sekirei that they wing[1]. One important part of the Ashikabi-Sekirei relationship is the fact that when an Ashikabi is killed, all of the Sekirei that they have winged are 'terminated'[2]. This is supposed to be classified information, however, most Sekirei and many Ashikabi know about it anyway. One part of the bond between Sekirei and Ashikabi is that they can feel each others feelings. For example, when Musubi's crest disappears and Minato becomes sad and starts crying, Tsukiumi and Kazehana (who wasn't winged at the time) feel his pain. Kusano who is far off at Izumo Inn immediately knows what happened and it is implied that Matsu also can feel Minato's feelings[3]. The feelings of the Sekirei can also be felt in return by the Ashikabi.

Unlike Sekirei, who are mostly buxom women, or handsome young men, Ashikabi can be quite innocuous as they can appear in any gender, age, and even status. In the series, the power of an Ashikabi can be determined not only by the number of the Sekirei he or she has in his or her disposal, but by the bond between them[1][4]. In any case an Ashikabi dies, all Sekirei winged by him or her will also perish. According to Miya, many of the current Ashikabi may be descendants and have remnants of former authority holders from a distant past[5]. Miya revealed that the reward for the last Ashikabi in the game (Sekirei Plan) is the last Sekirei[6].

  • Musubi taken over by Yume answered to Minato's question about Ashikabi:
"An Ashikabi's power is something from ancient times. A power left behind by a miracle called love. What you saw was an ancient memory carved into your genes. An Ashikabi is someone who accepts love from Sekirei and someone who guides us with love."

- Yume to Minato[7]

  • Takehito Asama once told Homura that he believes an Ashikabi's power is the power of fate[4].

Known AshikabiEdit

Four Ashikabi in particular, including Minato, are considered the most powerful ones having titles based on their names followed by what part of the city they rule over. Sanada and Minato, however, were given their titles and neither really acknowledges this until others begin calling them by their titles.

The Ashikabi considered the most powerful are the ashikabis of the North, South, East and West as well as the disciplinary squad. It is also mentioned by the competitors in the fourth match that the 'Demon' Ashikabi and the Lightning twins are also considered major powers and that all of these groups are dangerous. Most of the powerful groups have bad reputations, often caused by rumours. Seo, Minato, and Yukari all have scary reputations, causing many to fear them.
