• Sahei Natsume (Grandfather; Deceased)

Mario Natsume (夏芽 マリオ, Natsume Mario) is a young boy that is the younger brother of Masako Natsume who has a Penguin Hat like Himari Takakura's, but his has a little crown on the top.

This hat also has an "entity" that can control the body of Mario.


Mario is mysterious boy who bears the second penguin hat; he is the younger brother of Masako Natsume. He is a sickly boy that requires the penguin hat to live, like Himari Takakura. He is also next in line to lead the clan, being the only male heir. 


Like Masako Natsume, Mario also is a true biological sibling of Kanba Takakura, although the two are not seen in any direct interactions due to Mario's young age upon their separation.

Masako is Mario's older sister. She cares a lot for him, even if it means eating the poisonous blowfish to free his grandfather's possession within him. As a result, she is trying to obtain Ringo Oginome's diary to free him from his illness.
