|~ Kazakiri Hyouka|
Kazakiri Hyouka (風斬 氷華 Kazakiri Hyōka?) is Index's first "friend" in Academy City. Not much is known about her by normal people aside from the fact that she always had top marks at Kirigaoka Girls' Academy, despite never actually being seen by anybody, according to Himegami Aisa, and is referred to as the Key to the Imaginary Number District. During the attack of Sherry Cromwell, Index and Kamijou Touma discovered that Hyouka is the conscious form of the aggregation of the AIM Diffusion Fields of all espers in Academy City, the Imaginary Number District, who had gained sentience the moment Touma entered the city, as Imagine Breaker lead to her obtaining a fear of death. Hyouka normally resides in the Imaginary Number District, separated from humanity, though she can enter the physical world for short periods of time to visit her friends.
In the middle of Vento's invasion of Academy City, it was revealed that Kazakiri was, in fact, an artificial angel, an angel created by science instead of religion. Through the use of the Misaka Network, Kazakiri was forcibly turned into Fuse Kazakiri, emitting such a high concentration of AIM that any magical power was weakened in her presence, with Vento suffering internal damage due to her continuing to use magic while under the field.

Fuse Kazakiri Mode: While normally only possessing regeneration and a small amount of super strength, Kazakiri can enter a special mode when combined with the Misaka Network, becoming the artificial angel known as Fuse Kazakiri. The first time she was forcibly turned into this form she gained a halo and several dozens brilliant wings 10 to a 100 meters long. The second time, which happened under more willing circumstances, had her gain a rainbow halo, similar wings as before and changed her hair and eye color. While under this mode Kazakiri has shown the following abilities:
- Scales: Kazakiri can release a rain of tiny glowing objects that resemble moth scales from her wings. These scales will float in the air or wrap around her or other people's bodies to protect them from harm as if a forcefield covered their entire body.
- Magic Cancellation and Negation: The presence of Fuse Kazakiri, a mass of AIM and an artificial angel, causes a huge pressure on the bodies of all magicians in the area (which can be an entire city). Her presence warps the several “layers” of the world piled on top of each other, and blows away the magical laws as it continuously grows. This warping of the world's magic laws causes considerable and continuous internal damage to the blood vessels and nerves of magicians.
- Angel Wings: When in Fuse Kazakiri mode, Kazakiri gets several dozens of wings from 10 to 100 meters long. The wings appear to be made of light. It was later confirmed by Kazakiri that the wings are made of congregated AIM diffusion fields. These wings are incredibly sharp and can casually tear through buildings like wet paper just by moving around.
- Beam Attack: Sparks and lightning flashes between two of Kazakiri's wings, and then the energy is let loose as a grand flash of bluish-white lightning that flies with the snake-like movements of a living creature for several kilometers, blowing up everything in its path and going beyond the horizon. The attack resembles an electrical discharge, though Misaka Mikoto, the most powerful Electromaster in Academy City, could immediately tell that it didn't use actual electricity upon witnessing it.
- Energy Sword: Kazakiri can create a large energy sword that contains the same power as her wings.
