The Death God of underground Mhay Thai and one of Kenichi's instructors.
There is a strange dichotomy to Apachai's personality. He is a gentle giant, a kind, almost childlike man who loves animals and children, is friendly, helpful and kind to a fault. But he is also a totally unrelenting fighter who completely overwhelms opponents with lethal attacks and cannont show restraint when he fights.
It is hinted that he was forced to fight from a young age in fierce death matches in Thailand where he would not have survived if her ever held back. This may be th source of the odd duality to his nature.
This lack of restraint was so pronounced that Apachai was restricted from training Kenichi for fear that he might kill him during sparring. After a close shave, a solution was hit upon by the Elder who suggested that Apachai think of it not as sparring, but as playing with children, one of the few situations where Apachai would subconsciously hold back. This strategy succeeded, and Kenichi was able to train with Apachai safely.
Apachai was brought to Ryozanpaku by the Elder after a chance encounter. Despite having lived in Japan for approximately ten years, he is still not entirely fluent in Japanese, and his mode of speech is often quite simple. He is closest to Shigure, who he may have bonded with over their difficulties in speech, Sakaki, who ejoys his company, and Kenichi's sister Honoka, with who he enjoys playing board games.
Apachai is familiar with one of the masters from Yomi, presumably the Mhay Thai fighter, a connection which assures him of the danger the group represents. He has stated that he will lay down his life to protect Kenichi, his first ever student, from the group, should the need arise.
