The previous teacher of Class 3-A.
Negi takes the place of Takahata, who then takes a position as an art teacher. He is the object of Asuna's affection although he does not return the feelings. He is highly respected (maybe even famous) in the magical community even though he is a magic school dropout. He is unable to perform incantations so he fights with a mixture of eastern ki, some western magic, and a bare fisted version of iaido.
