Terashi is a tall, muscular man with long, slicked-back black hair styled into a short ponytail. He wears an all-black outfit along with a decorated mask that obscures his face. The mask itself follows the pattern of the Taijitu, otherwise known as the "yin-yang symbol".
Terashi is a calm and analytical individual with an intuitive mind. He possesses an immense respect for Lolong Donaire, being wary of even the slightlest moves from him.
For whatever reason, Terashi also possesses a self-deprecating attitude of his strength, considering himself the weakest out of all the 13 representatives of Purgatory.
Terashi spent most of the time during the tournament commenting on the fights with Lolong.
After Liu Dongcheng's rampage over Naidan Mönkhbat's death, Terashi asked Nicolas Le Banner and Fei Wangfang why they weren't as angry as Liu, despite being Naidan's friends as well, only to be surprised by how quickly they brushed it off.
After Lu Tian's loss against Kanoh Agito, Terashi ended up accusing Nicolas of "keeping something from them." Terashi and the other gladiators would later meet the Kengan fighters in the middle of the ring to find out that the Worm infiltrated Purgatory. Terashi, initially believing that they were just a fairy tale, found out that they were real. When Lolong called off talks to suspend the tournament, Terashi returned to his gate.
After Arashiyama Jurota's defeat at the hands of Hayami Masaki, Terashi was baffled by this unexpected loss, only to be reassured by Lolong. Terashi remained skeptical of Nicolas Le Banner, due to the latter's track record four wins and nine losses. Terashi would later understand the reason for this was that Nicolas will only get serious when going for the kill, which makes him a poor fit in Purgatory due to their rules against killing.
Powers and Abilities
While his abilities are yet to be shown, Terashi is noted by Yamashita Kazuo as an outlier among the thirteen gladiators, due to having almost nothing in regards to match results. Terashi himself claims that he is the weakest of the thirteen chosen for reasons currently unknown.
