Mash is of average height and has got a muscular build. He has black bowl-cut hair and a fake mark made by Brad Coleman. When at Easton, he wears the standard white shirt, black trousers, red tie, brown shoes and black cape. When away from school, he often wears white shorts, and black underarmor.
Mash is generally quiet and kind. However, if he sees someone hurting his family or friends, he gets incredibly angry.
He is also extremely innocent and obedient, making people abuse those qualities, but thanks to his strength he can twist almost every situation.
He is also very blunt and says things that would be rude to others, without a care in the world. He also firmly believes in his abilities so much so he downright told the headmaster he would knock the stuffing hell out of him with his fist.
He was abandoned when he was a child because he didn't have a mark, meaning that he is unable to use magic. Regro Burnedead found him and raised him like a father outside the big city, hiding Mash from society and teaching him auto-defense. They lived a peaceful life until one day Mash goes to the city and a policeman discovers him. After that event, Brad Coleman notices that Mash doesn't have a mark and goes to Mash's house to find him. Once there, Brad hurts Regro and after an intense fight with Mash, they accord that Mash will go to the magic school in order to maintain their peaceful life. Mash agrees and in that process, Mash set his goal to become the Divine Visionary.
Abilities and Powers
Mash was born without a mark, so he cannot cast spells, instead, he uses muscle-based techniques to compensate for his lack of magic power in a style called Muscles Magic (マスクルズ 魔法, Masukuruzu Mahō). Mash possesses an incredible amount of physical power. He's able to lift extremely heavy weights with immense speed in many different ways and block powerful magic spells by simply swiping his hand.
