Giou Takashiro is the oldest member of the Giou clan, currently over a thousand years old. Still young of appearance and with a lot of experience he manages the politics of the family while carrying the ancient responsibility on the Duras.
Takashiro comes off as a strict yet caring leader. In a rare moment of confessions he admits that his age had almost made him forget human emotions. He was so singularily focused on the war that the Zweilts and God's Light became nothing more than tools to him. However Yuki's compassion and ability to see solutions where he saw only sacrifices awoke some of his lost humanity, and though his determination has not wavered, he changes the way he acts toward his family members.
Despite his more than thousand years Takashiro still looks young. He has blond hair which he wears in a long style, similar to the one he had in the past (though considerably shorter). He is golden eyed and fair skinned like many other of the current members of the Giou clan. The only mark on his beauty is a deep scar running across his left cheek. It was a present given to him by Reiga and he keeps it as a constant reminder of his failures and his responsibilities. Takashiro changes his outfits and his looks depending on the situations. When he is first introduced as one of Yuki's relatives he wears more casual clothes, his hair brought back in a loose ponytail and a couple of glasses; a comforting and inviting look. However, when he is on official business he usually wears dark, streamlined suit and loose hair which akes him look more imposing. In private he seems to prefers the traditional Japanese style from the Heian period, consisting of a kimono and geta complimented with hair tied back with some kind of ribbon. In short he is very adaptable and knows how to use and manipulate his looks for his own benefit.
Takashiro is first introduced as Yuki's older half-brother. When he meets Yuki for the first time, he tells him that he and his father had been looking for him ever since his birth fifteen years earlier. He is also the head of the Giou clan. Although it is not yet revealed, Takashiro seems to be hiding something from Yuki and the rest of the Guardians. The truth is he preformed a forbidden ritual that allowed him to take a dura into his body. Because of this he, unlike the other Zweilt Guardians, has not been reincarnated. Instead he has lived for a thousand years, remembering everything, including how the war with duras first began. He also heals almost immediately after being injured. He believes that in order to win the war, there have to be sacrifices. He possesses a magic book much like Kanata, although his is red. It has been told that Reiga was his friend. He is shown during a battle with Reiga to be able to regenerate himself without any help, and reveals to Yuki later that he used a forbidden spell on himself that put a duras inside his body, which is how he was able to heal, and that because of that duras, he is immortal and has lived over 1000 years. He is also the one responsible for continually causing Yuki and the Zwielt to reincarnate so they can continue fighting Reiga. He then apologizes for lying to Yuki, telling him that he is not really Yuki's brother, but Yuki forgives him, telling him that despite that, Takashiro is still very important to him.
Takashiro was born more than a thousand years ago during the Heian period and lived with the other Giou clan members in the mountains. Takashiro and Yomi were two of the only members who took a liking to the young Reiga and didn't judge him despite his family history. On the contrary the two always did what they could to take care of Reiga even though they knew his situation was fragile. As the three grew up their powers also evolved and they became part of the Four Saints, the leaders of the Giou clan. After an incident in the capital the court summoned the clan to help purge a horde of Duras. Takashiro was sent with a couple of trained fighters while Yomi and Reiga were left to protect the village. Before leaving he had a talk with Yomi who expressed concern about Reiga, not because she feared him the way the other villagers did, but because she feared for him, feared he wouldn't know how to handle all the power he had been given. Unfortunately this conversation was overheard by Reiga. Though Takashiro manages to calm him, he still have to leave and the mission takes longer than he first figured. When he returned the Giou clan's village was awash in flames, Reiga had called a horde of demons and removed the village's barriers, leaving the people as feast for the Duras. Searching for answers, Takashiro stumbled upon Yomi's body and Reiga bathed in blood, but as soon as he tried to talk to him, Reiga attacks, leaving Takashiro with his characteristic scar on his left cheek.
Since then Takashiro has blamed himself. He blamed himself for not being there for Reiga, for not saving the village, for not listening to Yomi when she said Reiga was dangerous. Thus the war began and Takashiro swore to see it through because he felt it was his responsibility, his mistakes which caused it. Through the generations he used the Lost Spell of the Giou's clan to seal a Dura in his body, keeping him alive and giving him extrodinary healing abilities. He took it upon himself to carry the weight of the Giou clan and all man kind, sharing it with no one, suffering in silence. Using ancient spells he called back the souls of dead clan members, reincarnating them in new bodies so that they might live to fight again. Abandoning human emotions was his only way to deal with what he had to put himself and others through to end the war. Upon meeting Yuki his emotions return and he finally opens up to tell the story, apologizing for what he put them through time and time again for his own selfish reasons.
