Nentou Doujin (燃燈道人 Nentō Dōjin?, Ran-Deng Dao-Ren) is a former member of the Juunisen who left Konron 500 years before the beginning of the series during a staged fight with Genshitenson. By leaving the Sennin world, he was able to hunt down Jyoka in secret. Nentou is obsessed with justice. He is one of those people who believe in truth, freedom, liberty, and most importantly justice. When we are first introduced to him (volume 21), he took the spotlight (or limelight) immediately away from Taikoubou, and poor Bouchan felt as if he was being upstaged. Since his appearance, he seem to take charge of everything and Taikoubou has no say in anything (what do you expect, he was the person in charge of the 12 Sennins before Fugen). Nentou is one of the few people who know about the real purpose of the Houshin project, and who know about Taikoubou's secret. While he is skilled in the use of paopei , his mastery of 'Magic Spells' allow him to fight without any weapons, capable of even stopping a super paopei with his bare hands. He cares very deeply and has a weak spot for his half-sister, Ryuukitsu Koushu, to the point that other characters comment on his devotion (sort of a sister complex). Fujiryu re-used an earlier design he made for the game "The Great Sennin World War" and recolored the character to create Nentou.
