Sen Kaibara to Tenya Ida

Sen Kaibara (回原 (かいばら) (せん) Kaibara Sen?), also known as Spiral (スパイラル Supairaru?), is a student in Class 1-B at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.

Appearance

Sen is a young man of medium height with dark, shaggy hair, and dark eyes, which are rather thin and lazy-looking. He seems to have a modest athletic build, the same as most of his classmates, and a slight tan.

His hero costume appears to be a dark-colored windbreaker with grey, drill patterned rings around the base of the neck and arms. Over this, he wears a large white trench coat and gloves.

Personality

Sen is a level-headed person who remains mostly calm and focused on many occasions. He is also shown to be more mature than Neito Monoma, telling the latter to quit provoking Katsuki Bakugo and focus on his goal during the Cavalry Battle.[1]

Despite his serious demeanor, Sen can sometimes warm up during times when he drops his solemn behavior, such as when he shows enthusiasm in fighting against Mashirao Ojiro during the Joint Training Arc.[2]

He is also rather belligerent in terms of personality and often gets dragged along in his friends' antics. Sen is also described as an "ikeman", having the appearance of a good-looking man.[3]

Abilities

Sen uses his Quirk proficiency in tandem with his hand-to-hand combat abilities to overpower an experienced martial artist like Mashirao Ojiro.

Overall Abilities: Sen has proven to be a rather capable combatant who possesses a great handle on his Quirk, and some proficiency in close quarters combat. By using the gyrating effects of his Quirk in tandem with his hand-to-hand combat abilities, Sen can deliver powerful spinning attacks that can damage his enemies, which are amplified if he uses his drill gloves.

During the third round of the Joint Training Battle, Sen used his gyration-based fighting style to force Mashirao Ojiro, a skilled martial artist, on the defensive.

Quirk

Sen using his Quirk.

Gyrate ( (せん) (かい) Senkai?): Sen's Quirk allows him to make any part of his body rotate at high speed like a drill. He can significantly enhance his hand-to-hand combat skills by using this heavy rotation to augment his physical strikes.

Equipment

Drill Gloves: Sen wears a pair of spiral-patterned gloves that cover only his fingers. These gloves increase Sen's offensive capabilities as they can be used to damage his foes greatly and make physically defending against his Quirk impractical. Thanks to his Gyrate Quirk, these spirals act like a drill and cut into an enemy.
