- "Fine! But in the end all you'll get are tears!"
Tokaki has grey hair in both of his appearances whether young or old. When he is old, his beard and goatee grows longer , and his wild-shaped eyebrows grows thicker. Tokaki wears the same clothes althroughout, even if he transforms into a youthful man alongside large, round earrings. When Tokaki transforms, he has hair similar to Tasuki, but has differences: grey hair, and the direction of the hair is not wild and curves into the shape of his head.
He is extremely lecherous in nature , and married to the beautiful Subaru for reasons no one can figure out. He likes to comment like a critic to any attractive woman he sees and meets , such as Miaka. Even with his womanizing habits, he truly loves Subaru and goes to any length to protect her and keep her away from harm. When he is old, he develops a habit of smoking. Tokaki tries to seperate Tamahome and Miaka because he does not want them to end up like Suzuno and Tatara, and encourages Tamahome to develop a romantic relationship with his and Subaru's adoptive daughter, Xi Fang.
He first appears when the Suzaku warriors are travelling to Sairou. As soon as he gained the knowledge that Tamahome and Miaka are in love, he does everything to seperate them, because he does not want the either of them to end up like the seperated Tatara and Suzuno . He tells the warriors about Tamahome's childhood and how he found Tamahome as a bullied child because of the "ogre" symbol, and how even his neighborhood teased him by saying "Little ghost."He then asks Xi Fang , their adoptive daughter, to seduce Tamahome, unknown reason why, and he wants Tamahome and Xi Fang to develop a romantic relationship and when Tokaki tends to the exhausted warriors, Tokaki does really try everything to seperate them, until the time when Xi Fang told Miaka about the legend Tokaki just let them be and stopped trying to seperate them, Tokaki was deeply worried that all of the warriors went out to see if Miaka is safe in the monstrous tower full of monsters.
He then appears next when Miboshi summoned the high-level beast and Tatara was severely injured before being taken hostage, and died, Subaru reminded him of the spell when they can return to the time when they were still warriors, and they did, and he unfortunately died while they were repairing Subaru's and his internal organs.
Because of his lecherous nature and his habit of picking up other women , Subaru kicked him out of their house and he was forced to travel in the four cardinal realms. It was not revealed or explained how he got back to their house. While travelling in Konan, he met the young Tamahome, being bullied and picked at. When Tokaki realized that the boy was a Celestial Warrior, he trained him so that he can protect his priestess someday.
As a Celestial warrior, Tokaki is able to use earrings as weapons and his knowledge of pressure points also supplements him.
His main power is teleportation.
- Just forget that girl!
- I don't want you to end up seperated in the end!
- That girl will only bring you unhappiness.

Tokaki (奎宿?) is a Byakko Celestial Warrior married to the beautiful and kind Subaru. Extremely lecherous in nature, Tokaki takes it upon himself to comment on any attractive young woman he comes across, including Miaka. Despite his womanizing habits, Tokaki loves Subaru dearly and would go to any length to protect her. He cares deeply for Tatara and Tamahome, whom he sees as a son. He is 109 years old, but only appears 19 years old. Tokaki's power is teleportation and is supplemented by his knowledge of pressure points as well as his use of earrings as weapons.
Because he kept picking up other women, Subaru threw him out of their house and Tokaki ended up traveling around the four cardinal realms. While traveling in Konan, he came across a young Tamahome. Realizing that the bullied child was a Celestial Warrior, he trained Tamahome in martial arts so that he could one day protect his priestess. They meet again when the Suzaku Warriors travel to Sairō to find Byakko's Shinzaho, though it is not a happy reunion. Tokaki, seeing that Miaka and Tamahome are in love, knows from experience that they cannot wish to be together because once a priestess fulfills her duty in the book, she must return to her own world. Believing that it would be kinder if Miaka and Tamahome ended their relationship willingly rather than being forced apart like Tatara and Suzuno, Tokaki tries to encourage a romantic relationship between his adopted daughter Xi-Fang and Tamahome.
It is suspected that Tokaki and Subaru die together near the end of Fushigi Yûgi as the spell Subaru casts on their bodies has the unfortunate effect of damaging their internal organs beyond repair. However, they are seen in the novel version of Eikoden, which takes place 10 years after the original story of the book.
His true name is Ranva Ham (ハム ランヴァ, Hamu Ranba), born under the star Legs (奎).
