Taka Sukunami (宿南 魏 Sukunami Taka) is the reincarnation of the Second Suzaku Celestial warrior Tamahome. While they are one person, there are still subtile differences; like the fact that Taka is much less addicted to money than Tamahome is. In the end of OVA 1, a glimpse of him showed that he is a waiter.

Similar in appearance, however, Taka takes Tamahome's part in the 2nd OVA (where he was slightly interrupted) and the 3rd OVA, where he gets married with Miaka.


After Tamahome gave back the ring to Miaka. Yui wished to seal the book away already. Yui told Miaka to drop the ring back to Tamahome before they go back to their own world.

In OVA 2, Taka is in a relationship with Miaka for 8 months. Miaka told him all about the book and his past. However, Taka doesn't remember them all. But he believes that he is destined to meet Miaka because it's what his heart says.

In the school, a young boy name Ren controls Miaka's schoolmate and lured Miaka and Taka into trap. When Miaka was thrown down the rooftop, Taka jumps to save her and a red light appeared which made them go back inside the book. Miaka tells Taka that this is where they met. The only way to get Taka's memories is to find the Jewel of Memories or else, Taka will disappear.
