Character Description: Seiryo Tennan

Seiryou Tennan may be one of the biggest losers in the galaxy. The son of a very prestigious (and very rich) family on Jurai, Seiryou was a childhood friend of Amane Kaunaq, and is smitten with her. However, Amane thought Seiryou was annoying (a very good assessment of character) and constantly ignored his romantic overtures, either by ignoring him... or clobbering him.

There was one instance when the Juraian emperor Azusa had offered Seiryou the hand of Princess Ayeka in marriage, mostly because Azusa wanted Ayeka back on Jurai. However, Ayeka refused to return, instead wishing to stay with Tenchi Masaki. Azusa then proposed that Seiryou combat Tenchi, and if Tenchi won, then Ayeka could stay on Earth. But just before the battle could begin, Mihoshi's shuttle chose that moment to impact the lake, washing Seiryou into it. As a result, Tenchi won by default

Afterwards Seiryou became an instructor at the Galaxy Police Academy. His incident with Tenchi had soured Seiryou's perceptions on Earthlings in general, so when Seina Yamada enrolled in the G.P. Academy, he did everything in his power to insure that Seina would wash out, including holding up the body enhancements that Seina needed to keep up. However, that plan was squashed by Mikami Kuramitsu, the Academy's headmistress, and Seiryou ended up cleaning toilets (with Mihoshi's mother Mitoto supervising).

Seiryou later was captured by the pirate Kyo Komachi and her crew and Amane allowed him to be captured. After being held unsuccessfully for ransom (Seiryou's father was trying to dicker down the ransom), Seiryou later made a deal with the pirate leader Daluma and became the leader of his new Good Luck fleet, his flagship being the Unko, with the intention of getting revenge against Seina Yamada. After battling Seina and the Kamidake II to a standstill twice, he challenges Seina to a duel but loses by horrible embarrassment, when Seina trips on a piece of candy and pulls off Seiryou's belt by mistake, exposing Seiryo's red bikini briefs.

Happily, though, some good luck DID come Seiryou's way. On the occasion of Seina's wedding to Amane, Kiriko, Ryoko Balta, and Neju, he had proposed to Kyo Komachi, for which she said yes.

Note: Because his original English voice actor had sounded a little too effeminate for the edited version shown on Toonami, Seiryo had been redubbed by a different voice actor.
