Biography Edit

Appearance Edit

Tenchi is a Japanese schoolboy with remarkable energy-based powers. He wears a simple uniform consisting of a collared white shirt, black shorts with a belt, and a red tie. He also wears red training gloves and red-and-white sneakers, and his black hair is combed forward into a spiky pompadour-like hairdo.

When Tenchi uses his powers, he gains flaming blue antlers made of a strange ghostly energy. When he is overcome with energy, his eyes go blank and he floats silhouetted in a shaft of bright light.
