Baekseo of Cigarettes is a Black Reaper and the leader of the Asian Branch Team 2 and is known as the Top Guide Reaper as well as the "best in the Netherworld" due to possessing far superior levels of Dark Power than all other reapers and ghosts with the exception of Jusa. His legacy reaches so far and wide that the sole reason why people in the living world tell others to never smoke, aside from the health risks, is due to fear of his strength and status.

Transformation: A basic technique in which the user is able to transform parts of their body. Users are able to freely modify parts of his body at the expense of stamina as well as detach parts of his body, modify them, and utilize them as weapons.
External Transformation: A technique that can usually only be used by Reapers and those above. External Transformation allows the user to transform things that are not part of the user's body as well as conjure particular items. External Transformation can only be used on another individual if the user has a higher level of Dark Power or stamina than the other. Jang-Won often uses this technique to replace destroyed medallions or alter the size of medallions depending on for the sake of offensive or defensive purposes.
- King Cig: Baekseo uses External Transformation to generate a massive lit cigarette which he smashes down on his opponent. The cigarette is infused with Dark Power and will gradually increase in length even while Baekseo isn't touching it, until it runs out of Dark Power.
Ember Flicking: Baekseo can fire burning embers out of his cigarettes at high speeds and like bullets.
Tobacco Fist: Baekseo punches his opponent with lit cigarettes wedged between his fingers to pummel his opponent while causing slight burns.

Individuals under this effect will have their Dark Power equalized while those of higher status will be unable to project their rank through force and will no longer be affected by any form of social influencing.
