Original Name: Ea Gia
A new fad by the name of ‘Air Treks’ (a futuristic evolution of aggressive skating) has swept the nation’s youth and all over gangs are being formed that compete in various events using their A-T’s. Ikki is a middle-school boy who is the toughest street-fighting punk on the east side of town part of his gang ‘The East-Side Gunz’, on top of that he lives with 4 adopted gorgeous sisters that took him in when he was a kid. But what Ikki doesn’t know is that the girls are part of one of the most infamous A-T gangs, ‘Sleeping Forest’. It doesn’t take long before Ikki finds out about the world of Air Treks and is propelled into a fate he had not foreseen, learning about his past and making a number of storm riding allies on the way.
Itsuki “Ikki” Minami
The main protagonist of the story, he was given Air Treks (in the anime, he took them himself) and soon delved into the world of Storm Riders. There is a small crow named Kuu that lives in his hair. In the anime, Kuu was used as a censor. Eventually he creates a team, Kogarasumaru with his two best friends, Kazu and Onigiri. Eventually Buccha, Agito/Akito (Lind is discovered at a later time) join Kogarasumaru. Originally trained to become the Wind King, and eventually the Sky King by Sora, he soon finds himself betrayed by Sora and Nike (Sora’s twin brother), who conspire together to steal his Regalia. When they do this, Ikki is stripped of the chance to become the Wind King. Shortly thereafter, Ikki is instead named the Storm King, following the “Hurricane Road.” He has the ability to use his Air Trick’s to manipulate the wind. His special techniques allows him to create a space where there is no wind called Null Wind, similar to the eye of a hurricane, which may explain his road’s name.(Battle level of 117 in battle with Sleipnir)
Kazuma “Kazu” Mikura
A long-time friend of Ikki, Kazu is a friend who’s always by his side. He is a speed-type rider who inherits the title of Flame King soon after following the path of the Flame Road. He inherits the title after Spitfire (his mentor and the former Flame King) passes away inheriting his legendary AT’s. Due to his speed he got the nickname Stealth (named after the F/A-18 Hornet). His special techniques allows him to ‘manipulate time’ (this technique is actually just an illusion, where he moves too fast for the normal human eye, thus making him able to fool the opponent with his speed, one of these tricks being the ‘cloning’ which is just all his afterimages) and literally marking out a ‘Flame Road’, where he rides his AT’s at such high speeds that the heat caused by the friction of the wheels creates the illusion of flames. These two techniques are, at some level, inherited from Yasuyoshi Sano, the Aeon Clock, and Spitfire, respectively. This is highly likely, as they both followed the Flame Road. (Battle level of 89 in battle with Sleipnir, and over 200 in battle with Nike)
