Mamoru Itou (伊東 守 Itō Mamoru) is one of the five main characters.


At the age of twelve years, Mamoru is portrayed as a short, young boy with messy, light brown hair and golden eyes. He wears the common school uniform of Sage Academy, which consists of a beige vest with a blue seam, a purple bow tied over the midsection and four blue buttons on the stomach area of the vest. Additionally, he wears pants in the same color as the seam, with a single white line on the bottom of each side, as well as fitting shoes combined with white and blue socks. A yellow patch on his left sleeve denotes his group number [1].

Not much has changed about his appearance at the age of fourteen years, the only differences being a raise in height and broader shoulders. He is still wearing the same uniform he has been wearing at the age of twelve years [2].


Mamoru is the most timid and the least talented of the group aside from Reiko Amano. The most reluctant to break the rules, he was the most affected by the False Minoshiro's words at the summer camp.

He is also the father of Messiah and he was killed along with Maria Akizuki after the child was born.


  • The name Mamoru means "defend, protect" (守).
  • Mamoru's surname Itō means "this" (伊) (i) and "wisteria" (藤) (tou).
    • Itō is an alternate transcription of Itou.
  • Unlike the majority of the members of Group One, Mamoru went to Friendship School and not Harmony School [1].
  • Maria Akizuki has been the only person that Mamoru ever felt attracted for since joining Sage Academy. Even during puberty, he never showed an interest in his own sex, like the other boys his age [3].
  • When Mamoru was young, he lost his mother from typhoid fever and he seems to view Maria as a surrogate, since both have red hair, a rare trait in Kamisu 66. According to Satoru Asahina, red hair was never an Asian trait, so Mamoru's mother and Maria's possibly mutual ancestors possibly came from a distant country many generations ago [3].
