|“||You often hear in movies or manga that hypnotism isn't all-powerful, that it can't be effective when the person being controlled doesn't like a command or when it endangers the person. Is that true? As for whether it can work, let's try it.||„|
|~ Kumokawa Seria|
Kumokawa Seria is a third-year student at Kamijou Touma's high school. Unbeknownst to him and most of her classmates, Seria is actually a genius girl employed by Kaizumi Tsugotoshi, one of the members of the Board of Directors who rules over Academy City, as his "brain" and personal advisor. Seria is apparently one of the few people aware of Touma's memory loss, having some sort of past connection to him similar to Shokuhou Misaki, who considers Seria her rival.

- Hypnotism: Seria is very skilled in the use of hypnotism, being capable of inducing several effects through the use of mere words and other mental tricks with no actual supernatural power involved. While catching a spy Seria was capable of making him feel as if his brain was being drained. She also caused him to feel pain and stopped him from talking and moving. She's capable of slowly applying mental pressure to bind someone with their own fear and cause them to make elementary mistakes in a fight. In the worst cases, they will even stop breathing on their own. Similarly, Seria is capable of using self-suggestion to dilute her own sense of pain, though she commented that the technique isn't perfect.
