A kid who originally didn't want anything to do with others, but this changed when he was entered into the Reaper's Game. The rules: Team Up, or Be Erased from Existence. He ended up making many friends. However, his friends were taken by somebody, sending Neku back into his depression. It was only at Katara's insistence that Neku be allowed to join Team Paladin, but Phoenix still thinks that he's an emo jerk. He remains with Team Paladin as a way of finding the man who took his friends. Shortly before meeting Team Paladin, he obtained a special Player Pin (a sign of being a Player in the Reaper's Game) which not only allows him to read minds, but also implant ideas into people's minds and create and dissolve pacts (a psychic link with another person which increases both of their abilities and allows him to use the full potential of his psyches).
While fighting Sho Minamimoto again, his anger caused him to initiate a transformation into a Noise Form, a power normally limited to the most powerful of Reapers and select others. His Noise Form is called Pardus Cantus, meaning "Singing Panther" in Latin, and causes him to turn into a large black panther with Noise symbols replacing his arms and running down his shoulders and back. In this form, he loses most of his long-range ability but in exchange his physical strength and speed increase ten-fold, and can surround his body in electricity. Like this, he can match Minamimoto in his Noise Form one-on-one. However, worth noting is that if he has created a pact with somebody at the time, the negative feedback causes the other person to fall unconscious.
Abilities: Psychic Abilities coming from special pins of his, mind-reading, Pardus Cantus Transformation

The Defender Airship
An airship obtained through questionable circumstances by Phoenix. It is one of the fastest in the universe, and is able to travel through space and water. However, because it requires a large landing space, most of the time it will land quickly, all team members will get out, then it will return to orbit the world.
The Defender has enough rooms for each member of Team Paladin to stay in one by themselves, though the rooms can hold two bunk beds each.
The Airship resembles the airship Ragnarok (Final Fantasy VIII) but blue instead of red, and one and a half times the size. It also lacks the great firepower that the Ragnarok has, having only the basics.
