Daisuke Niwa

Daisuke Niwa is the series protagonist who, after turning 14 and confessing his love to, and being rejected by, his crush Risa Harada, discovers that an entity called Dark lives within him. Afterwards he transforms into Dark whenever he experiences feelings of love or intimacy with the girl he loves. Initially this is Risa Harada, but after she rejects him, Daisuke finds himself falling in love with her twin sister, Riku Harada, who does return his feelings after realizing how kind-hearted and gentle he was. Perceptive, athletic, and artistic, Daisuke is also skilled in dodging traps, picking locks, and other thieving-type activities, due to the daily life-threatening trials his family has him undergo when he gets up in the morning and returns from school in the afternoons.

Though he regularly argues with his alter-ego Dark, he expresses concern for him when he is in danger or in pain. He misses Dark when they are separated within the series through magic. In the anime adaptation, he cries when Dark seals himself with Krad, leaving Daisuke. He is voiced by Miyu Irino. In the English dub, he is voiced by Kevin Corn.

Dark Mousy

Dark Mousy is an entity of unknown origin who has appeared in the first male of the Niwa generation for the last 400 years. Once Dark appears, his host will change into Dark whenever he is around the person he loves or thinks about them a great deal. At the start of D.N.Angel, Dark had lain dormant for 40 years as his previous host, Daiki Niwa only had one female offspring. When her son, Daisuke, reached 14, he became Dark's new "tamer" or host. Known to the public as "Phantom Thief Dark", Dark steals the cursed art pieces made by the Hikari family, which the Niwa family then seals away to prevent them from causing anymore trouble. He primarily uses Wiz as his wings, as using his own true wings causes Daisuke's body tremendous harm. Though he and Daisuke often argue over missions and Risa and Riku Harada, its apparent that Dark cares for his host, taking care not to harm him by using too much of his magic and protecting him when possible.

Candid and confident, Dark can also appear to be arrogant and something of a playboy, flirting shamelessly with girls. After Dark's reappearance, Daisuke's crush, Risa Harada, falls in love with him and begins to pursue him. He initially flirts with her, seemingly to annoy Daisuke, and goes on several dates with her. However, as the series progresses, Dark seems to develop feelings for Risa, particularly after she sincerely answers him when he asks what she would do if he were a monster. Daisuke later remarks that Dark is falling in love with Risa. When she is taken by Argentine, Dark is furious and vows to show no mercy.

In the anime adaptation, Dark rejects Risa's feelings after telling her that he was once in love with her grandmother and only humored Risa's attraction because she reminded him of his lost love. At the end of the anime, he seals himself and Krad into a statue called "The Black Wings", which in the anime is said to be where both entities originate. With the seal in place, he disappears from Daisuke's body. He is voiced by Ryōtarō Okiayu. In the English dub, he is voiced by Vic Mignogna.


Satoshi Hiwatari

Satoshi Hiwatari is the police commander in charge of capturing Dark. Extremely intelligent, Satoshi graduated from high school at the age of eight, and obtained a college degree at the age of 13. He enrolled in Daisuke's middle school in order to be closer to Daisuke, whom he knew was Dark's alter ego. Calm and composed, he rarely shows his emotions causing others to find him distant and cold. Daisuke seems unaffected by his distant nature, and insists on becoming his friend. Reluctant at first, Satoshi comes to accept Daisuke's friendship, though later withdraws from school to try to distance himself from Daisuke again out of fear. He later returns to offer to aid rescuing Risa from Argentine. Series fans often suggest that Satoshi has deeper feelings for Daisuke than that of friendship, though Satoshi himself has never stated such a thing. Krad, however, does state the same during the series while taunting Satoshi.

Satoshi is the last heir of the Hikari family, which created powerful artworks that the Niwa family has been stealing for years via Dark. However, unlike most of his line, he is unable to create art of his own, though he can mimic any piece if he sees it once, while Daisuke can create original art, flipping their normal family legacies. After his mother's death, Satoshi was adopted by the Hiwatari family. His adoptive father appears to be aware of the Hikari and in the anime adaptation attempts to use it for his own purposes, eventually getting killed by one of the artworks he tries to harness the power of.

Much as Daisuke houses the soul of Dark Mousy, Satoshi holds that of his opposite, Krad. Unlike Dark, Krad is homicidal and cares nothing for Satoshi, causing Satoshi to regularly fight to keep him inside. It is suggested that Satoshi wears glasses as a way of helping him keep Krad in check, as he notes that he does not actually needs them and when he once removes them, he almost immediately feels Krad trying to emerge.

In the anime adaptation, he is voiced by Akira Ishida. In the English dub, he is voiced by Greg Ayres. In the drama CDs he is voiced by Tomokazu Seki.


Krad is a entity similar to Dark, living inside his "tamer" Satoshi Hiwatari. He is Dark's opposite in many ways, including having blond hair, wearing white attire, and always speaking very politely using an extremely formal speech pattern. Krad is Dark's, and by extension, Daisuke's worst enemy, repeatedly attempting to kill them both. Though Krad refers to Hiwatari as Master Satoshi and as "his everything", he shows little regard for Hiwatari's wishes nor well-being. He ignores Hiwatari's repeated attempts to get him to leave Daisuke alone and regularly uses his magic without limit, causing Hiwatari to collapse in agony. Like Daisuke, Hiwatari has little control over his transformation though he can force Krad to go back inside his body at times. In the anime adaptation, he is voiced by Takeshi Kusao. In the English dub, he is voiced by Illich Guardiola.

Supporting characters

Risa Harada

Risa Harada is Daisuke Niwa's friend and his initial object of affection. At the start of the series, she rejects his confession of love, feeling that he is too "normal" and only able to see him as her friend. After seeing Daisuke's alter ego Dark, she falls in love with the thief and believes that he is the mysterious person she is destined to be with. Innocent, spoiled, and depicted as "girly-girl", Risa is often seen as the opposite of her twin sister Riku, though both show the same stubbornness and tenacity, particularly when it comes to people they care about. She is initially confused with Riku and Daisuke falling in love, and so she becomes jealous, but realizes that she was more afraid of losing her sister and her friend than wanting Daisuke for herself, and becomes supportive of their relationship.

Wanting to be with Dark, Risa begins taking great risks to try to see him during his thieving adventures. Dark initially accepts her affections, then rejects her when he realizes she truly loves him. However, Risa refuses to give him up and after noting that she has "become a lady" he agrees to go on a date with her. During the date, she is kidnapped by Argentine who takes her to his world and demands that she, as Dark's "maiden", help him become more like Dark.

Satoshi Hiwatari is also seen as showing concern for her in the manga, deliberately transforming into Krad—something he normally fights—to try and save her when he sees her falling from a tower during Argentine's attack.[1]

In the anime adaptation, Risa's crush on Dark appears to die down towards the end of the series. Towards the end of the series, she is shown more frequently with Satoshi, sharing a private glance with him at the end of the series while they avoid looking at Daisuke and Riku embracing nearby. She is voiced by Masumi Asano. In the English dub, she is voiced by Luci Christian.

Riku Harada

Riku Harada is Risa Harada's twin sister, and a friend of Daisuke Niwa. Athletic and intelligent, Riku is depicted as a tomboy, who is more serious, and down-to-earth than her sister. Though more outspoken than Risa, Riku can be shy and Risa notes that her sister doesn't realize just how popular she is. Though the girls are different in personality, Riku is protective of her sister and they share a tight bond. When Risa is kidnapped by the Argentine, Riku falls into a coma.

Though Riku initially appears to only see Daisuke as a friend, its soon revealed that she harbors romantic feelings for him, though he initially can only see Risa. After her sister rejects him, Riku begins to see him less as clumsy and unreliable, coming to see his strengths and admitting to the feelings she herself had been denying. While trying to sort out her feelings, she remembers that they had met as children when he'd helped her retrieve her precious teddy bear from over a fence one night. Eventually she admits her feelings, but initially is disbelieving when Daisuke tells her he feels the same. Realizing he is speaking the truth, they become a couple.

Riku intensely dislikes Dark, feeling he is nothing but a thief and a playboy, however when Risa is in danger and he promises he will bring her back, she begins to soften her stance towards him. She also sometimes compares him to Daisuke, though she does not yet know that Daisuke is Dark.

In the anime adaptation, Riku is more uncertain of her relationship with Daisuke, temporarily hating that he calls both her and Risa "Miss Harada" and acting jealous towards Niwa. Dark also steals her first kiss in the anime adaptation when they meet while he is hiding in her room, which does not happen in the manga. She is voiced by Sara Nakayama. In the English dub, she is voiced by Hilary Haag.
