Melty Blood/Akiha Tohno
(Click here for the original Akiha Tohno page)
Akiha is one of the five Tsukihime heroines and together with Arcueid and Ciel make the "Main Heroine Trio" (Hisui and Kohaku are referred oficially as "pseudo-heroines"). She is the current head of the Tohno family, biological daughter of Makihisa Tohno and adopted younger sister of Shiki Tohno.
Like all other members of the Tohno family, Akiha has demonic blood on her, though hers are considerable weaker than those of some of her relatives and thus she can use them without going insane. Akiha is playable since the first Melty Blood, and has a long list of dopplegangers in the game: G-Akiha (non-playable boss), Akiha Vermilion and Akiha Tohno (Seifuku).
As a playable character, Akiha has great versatility in all Moons and one of the game's highest defense. She lacks in speed, though.
