Akira is a main character in the hit manga/anime series Dance in the Vampire Bund. He is also a werewolf, and thus a member of the Earth Clan which protects the Tepes vampire family. He is the personal guardian and lover of Queen Mina Tepes.
Akira is a young teen who is 17 years of age. He has black hair and green eyes with fair skin. He is considered quite handsome too. He usually wears a uniform much like the other kids that he goes to school with. Although he is seen through out the series in casual clothes. His wolf form is that of a humanoid wolf with black fur. His eyes stay the same color, however they glow when he gets angry.
After he gets bitten by Mina, his werewolf form is now mainly black but with patches of white fur around his eyes, snout and neck. The white fur on his neck drapes around his body like a scarf.
Akira is the son of Wolfgang Regendorf, the head of the werewolf earth clan that is protecting the royal vampire family, the Tepes. He was raised from birth to be a strong fighter and devout servant of vampire queen Mina Tepes. He first met Mina a little after he was born, just as she got done with a purity inquiry. He then met her as a little boy at the age of ten. He found her in a garden crying and asked her if she was crying because she had a stomach-ache. That day, Akira promises to forever stay by Mina's side to protect her and keep her happy.Then around the age of 10 Akira goes through his rite of passage with fellow werewolves, Graham, Sanin, and Angel(Angie). The rite of passage involves young werewolves being dropped off in an extremely cold place, such as The Arctic, with absolutely no clothes or contact with anyone else for several months. This tradition is made to create a stronger bond between the wolves and teach them how to work together to survive. During this trial the four develop a strong bond, however the fun is interrupted when Graham kills Sanin for apparently no reason right in front of Angel. When Akira went to confront him, he(Akira), loses control and kills Graham; this experience haunts Akira and Angel for a long time. With Akira being afraid to tell Mina what happened due to the fact that he doesnt want her to know of his beast-like inner nature. Mina and Akira later reunite upon his seventeenth birthday in which he takes up the role as Mina's personal guard. Yuki, a girl who was also in love with Akira, confesses her feelings for him; Akira rejects her, but both remain as friends. Over time and through many trials, Akira grows stronger so that he can protect and defend Mina from those who wish to see her dead. Though Akira is reluctant at first, he comes to accept and return the feelings Mina has for him. Though neither has openly admitted the love they have for each other, it is a known fact throughout the manga.
Akira is a kind boy who is extremely loyal to his friends. He used to be very care free and innocent but after an incident during his "Rite of Passage", became very distant and rarely smiled. Regardless, his nature to defend others and stand by what's right has never changed. Due to his amnesia he can't remember much about his life other than friends and school (only in anime).
He is a kind person, determined to protect Mina, with whom he is in love with. In the anime, he lost all of his memories one year ago, and did not even know he was a werewolf until episode 2. It is later revealed he lost his memory due to failing a mission, and was allowed to live because of his importance to Mina.
