Izuna (イズナ, Izuna) is a fox spirit who was exiled to another plane of existence called The Backyard. He first appears as a voice in Sol and Sin's head when they are attacked by a mysterious new enemy. He teaches Sol about the new enemy (which also acts as a tutorial in the game) and later travels with Sol and Sin on their journey.
Izuna is also the one to teach Sol Badguy and Sin how to use the tactics of the Ghost and Master Ghost system in the game as well. Most fans believe Izuna's looks were taken off of Slayer, though this is not likely because in various interviews with Daisuke Ishiwatari he exclaims that Izuna along with Valentine, Dr. Paradigm, and Sin are all new children (creations) of his.
Despite having a keen sense of observation, he seems aloof on the surface, so you can’t read him. He holds true to his motto “Go with the flow”, and he finds it important to spend time and share happiness with friends rather than by oneself. But don’t get him wrong; he is by no means an easy-going person.
He claims to be a non-human that resided in the Backyard. No one knows where he was born, but his tender manner and Japanese sword do not fit him together; it shows that he has a long past behind him. Maybe because he was born in a world of information, but his manner of speech seems to be mesh of various backgrounds, creating a hybrid dialect.
