Nanase Kyouya or Na Siun (나시운) is the first person to become an artificial taker by contracting with the prototype artificial magical vessel in order to save his own life from a terrorist attack by Taurus.

Nanase Kyou or Na Jiun (나지운) is Nanase Kyouya's female alter-ego.

This first series of artificial magical vessels are based on Igarashi Kyouka's sorcery device, so because of that probably reformats people wearing it into women, since Kyouka is one. The transformation is complete, including the ability to become pregnant, and having periods. When the period approaches, instead of PMS, the wearer enters a state of estrus

First Student CouncilEdit

Angels are beings from the alternate universes and the intervals between instances of time. Angels are divided into choirs, of which there are 9. The 9 choirs can be separated into 3 spheres, representing weak, medium, and powerful angels. There are 3 choir levels in each sphere; 1&2&3 are the 1st sphere, 4&5&6 are the 2nd sphere, 7&8&9 are the 3rd sphere. There is a large jump in power between each sphere.
Takers are those who can retrieve the energy from the intervals between instances of time, called life. They have enhanced power, skill, endurance and healing, from their ability to use life. There are three types of takers, original takers, artificial takers, and SAI:takers.
Original takers are the original takers from which other types of takers are derived. They require life to live, and use up one lifepoint each day. When they run out of life, they turn to dust and die. Once forming a contract, they start with 20 lifepoints. Original takers are much stronger than other types of takers. Original takers are created when they make a contract with a sorcery device. Sorcery devices choose their contractors. Original takers are tightly controlled by the government because of their capabilities. As of the beginning of the manga, there are only four known original takers left, though there are several unknown ones in the Taurus terrorist group.
Artificial takers are a newly created type of taker. They are an invention of Life Inc. They have the strength approaching that of original takers. They also need one lifepoint each day to live. When they run out of life, they turn to dust and die. They form contracts with a magical vessel, an artificial sorcery device to become artificial takers. Artificial takers must remain in contact with their magical vessels. If they remove the magical vessels, then their rate of lifepoint consumption increases by dozens of times. Once forming a contract, they start with 20 lifepoints. People choose to make contracts with magical vessels, unlike sorcery devices.
SAI:Takers are a type of synthetic taker. They are an invention of Life Inc. They have strength, stamina, endurance and healing much greater than that of normal humans, but much less than that of original takers (or artificial takers). SAI:Takers are people who are compatible with SAIs (Summon Assist Interfaces). SAI:Takers fight each other by summoning Angels with their SAIs. They must expend life to defend and attack. Their abilities also determine the type of angels they can summon. If they summon an angel more powerful than their ability to control, it will break its bonds and run amok.
Taurus is a terrorist group, several original takers are memebers. It is against the creation of magical vessels by Life Inc. As such, it has destroyed the Life Inc. research annex, where the data for creating them was stored. It is also against synthetic takers, like SAI:Takers, and think only natural takers should exist.
The group is named after an original sorcery device in the related earlier series Re:BIRTH -The Lunatic Taker-. "Taurus" is the sorcery device picked up by Tachibana Reiji and shared with him by Tachibana Ayaka in that manga serial.
