Daisuke smiles
protagonist of the story who confesses to and is rejected by his crush (first love), Risa Harada, in the beginning of the series. He then discovers that, because of his Niwa Family heritage, an entity called Dark lives within him.

Daisuke transforms into Dark (usually unwillingly) whenever he experiences feelings of love or intimacy. Daisuke is kind hearted, the opposite of Dark, and is always trying to stop Dark from performing crazy stunts to no avail. Later in the series, Daisuke gradually falls in love with Risa Harada's(his crush) older twin sister, Riku Harada. Riku in turn also has feelings for Daisuke.

He regularly argues with Dark but, expresses concern for him when he is in danger. He misses Dark when they are separated in the series through magic. In the anime adaptation, he cries when Dark seals himself and Krad, leaving Daisuke.
