|“||Say it. I will defeat the White Queen myself. That will remove everything eating into Meinokawa Higan. I will use everything available to me, I will cheat in every way I can, and I will sweep aside everyone who stands in my way. Freedom Award 902, Alice (with) Rabbit, swears it. …So say the cursed words. That will complete this.||„|

Shiroyama Kyousuke is the main protagonist of the Blood Sign series. Known as Alice (with) Rabbit (不殺王＜アリス（ウィズ）ラビット＞, Fusatsu-Ou <Arisu(Uizu)Rabitto>, lit. "Nonkilling King"), Kyousuke is a famous summoner belonging to the Freedom faction, with 902 Awards under his belt at the start of the series. Having accidentally put the world at incredible risk in the past due to his close relationship with the White Queen, the strongest Unexplored-class Material, Kyousuke now is compelled to help anyone who asks him for help. Thus he saves girls who are being crushed by the world by teaming up with them and using them as a vessel, before cutting his contract with them as their problem is solved so as to not make them a target of the White Queen.
The story begins with Kyousuke about to retire from the summoning business due to having spent half a year since he separated from his last vessel. However, he runs into Higan and Renge, two twin sisters who are being chased by a mysterious organization called Guard of Honor, forcing him to once more enter the world of summoners.

Accomplished on his own as a kid what an organization of hundreds of summoners with plenty of resources and talent couldn't complete successfully, the perpetual summoning and binding of a Material to the human world. Analyzed and reconstructed the Pandemonium's defensive magic circle that had taken countless hours to be designed in less than 10 seconds. His calculation speed surpasses the average supercomputer
Weaknesses: Normal human weaknesses, each Artificial Sacred Ground only lasts a maximum of 10 minutes, incense grenades don't work on unmanned weapons
- Magic: Humans can't achieve powerful magic on their own. The most they can do is use magic to create and put together a Blood-Sign, the staff used by summoners, or to establish and break their contract with a vessel.
- Summoning: Humans have devised and put together a summoning system that allows them to call upon the gods and other beings from myth with a 100% accuracy rate. Summoners freely fight by calling in Materials, the residents of other worlds, from completely foreign places and making them possess their vessel.
- Protective Circle: Summoners are guarded by a protective circle made of the Material's power for the duration of the battle. With modern summoning ceremonies, the top priority while using a Material’s power is to prevent the summoned monster from interfering with the ceremony. The circle’s effects can be divided into two major categories: stopping all external elements and preventing the summoner from collapsing mid-ceremony due to internal elements such as lifespan or illness. (i.e. in the unlikely event that the protective circle was pierced from outside, the summoner would not die. It could happen the instant the circle was released, though.) As with Materials, conventional weapons and normal physical attacks are useless against the protective circle.
- Blood-Sign: Unlike other summoners, who normally use magic to form a custom Blood-Sign at the start of a battle, Kyousuke uses a 180cm military Repliglass staff officially known as a Quad Motors Phosphorus. It is normally used for training by beginner summoners of the Government faction. However, Kyousuke likes to use it because, while it doesn’t have any outstanding features, it's still better than average overall and allows him to add his own customizations while still being easily replaceable. The staff is very flexible (usually compared to a snake), allowing Kyousuke to carry it concealed by wrapping it around him. Kyousuke is skilled at using his Blood-Sign like a combat staff or spear to fight other people or to grab nearby small objects and throw them as projectiles. Due to its flexibility, if Kyousuke supports it a little, it can spin like a drill and catch paper or cloth on fire from friction, or it can be used to remove screws by using the beak-like part on the silicon pellet insertion slot.
- Body Analysis/Calculations: Kyousuke is able to predict an enemy's next movement by reading their breathing, the movement of their eyes, the tension in their muscles, the adjustments to their balance and other information from their body. He used this technique to counter Hayato Yasuzumi's artificial gravity control strategy. Similarly, he can accurately calculate out where he can strike to knock someone out in a single blow by determining the location of his opponent’s center of gravity from their build, determined the range of motion of their arms and legs, etc...; all in an instant. Kyousuke is also able to use his superhuman calculation abilities in other ways, such as to calculate bullet ricochets in order to surround the enemy with bullets. One time, when confronted with armed guards in the closed space of a ship's hallway, Kyousuke adjusted things in the environment like the angle of doors or ceiling panels to focus the noise of the guards' gunshots, knocking them out non-lethally with the reflected sound waves.
- Sixth Sense: Kyousuke's experience in the battlefield has granted him a sixth sense that allows him to detect great presences such as other ace summoners, sensing their presence as a stinging tension and a dense premonition of death that stirs his combat instincts. He's also able to sense hostility, even while asleep.
- Animal Intimidation/Killing Intent: High-level summoners like Kyousuke who have started to reach a higher stage exude a presence that intimidates dangerous animals such as lions, keeping them away. Additionally, when annoyed Kyousuke can release a killing intent powerful enough to cause even Aika's liger, an animal vessel who should be used to summoners, to be cowed into submission. Aika has commented that a normal person would probably suffocate to death if forced to ride an elevator with a truly angry Kyousuke.
