Character Description: Sena Kobayakawa

Sena has always been bullied. Ever since he was little, he's been forced to be a gopher for bigger kids. His constant errand running, however, toned his legs so well that he's the fastest kid in Deimon High School! After being harassed by some delinquents, Sena runs away from them and heads for the train station. It just so happens that the football team captain, Yoichi Hiruma, is there to see his flawless cuts and dashes as he outmaneuvers the bullies. He is (rather forcibly) recruited to the football team, the Deimon Devil Bats.

He wears a tinted eyeshield to protect his identity, lest the other sports teams try to steal him. Fortunately, Hiruma, who pretty much rules the school, ensures that he is protected from bullies. Sena is scrawny (barely 5'), weak (can only bench press the bar), and has absolutely no experience in the game (couldn't even hold the ball correctly during the first game). However, on the field, Sena is impossibly fast. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.2 seconds (the fastest possible speed for a human), and very few players can catch him.

Sena's greatest rival is Seijuro Shin, the Ojo White Knight's linebacker. His vicious spear tackle tortured Sena for an entire game until Sena was able to outrun him (Shin runs the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds). Sena and Shin have both agreed to meet each other at the Christmas Bowl, the high school national championship game. Sena had originally signed up as the team's manager, but it was pretty obvious that he sucked as a manager. When Mamori joined, he was able to practice full time.

Sena's trump card is the devil bat ghost. At first, his greatest flaw was that he would slow down before cutting. This gave any defensive player an instant to strike. After completing the Death March across America, he learned to cut without stopping. Now when he runs at a player, he seems to split in two, becoming one again after the player has fallen far behind.
