Hiei, also known as, Jaganshi Hiei, is one of the main characters of the manga and anime series Yu Yu Hakusho.
Due to being born as the union of a ice maiden and a fire demon, he was cast out and thrown over the mountain in which he was born. After surviving, he was found and raised by a gang of bandits, which later rejected him due to using the Tear Stone to attract enemies to kill. After losing the stone when fighting a demon, he asked and received the Jagan Eye from Shigure, who also taught him in the art of swordsmanship since the implant caused his power to considerably drop. Thanks to his eye, he reached the ice village and found out about of the existence of his twin sister Yukina, he then travelled everywhere in order to find her and his search led him to the Human Realm where he met Yusuke Urameshi.

Weaknesses: Arrogant sometimes, using the Kokuryūha causes Hiei to hibernate for a couple of hours, albeit after the fight has ended, and this seems to no longer be the case after the DT saga. His binding technique gets cancelled if he closes his eyes.
- Jagan Eye: With his surgically implanted third eye, Hiei can telekinetically move objects, erase memories, and control weaker minds: demons and humans. It also allows him to transform into his green skinned Jaganshi form with eyes all over his body. In this form, the power of his Jagan is greatly increased, allowing him to bind his foes.
- Jaou Ensatsu Kokuryuuha: Also known as Dragon of the Darkness Flame, Hiei uses his yoki to summon a dragon made from the flames of demon world. The dragon is not only a projectile, it can be used as a nutritional supplement to amplify one's yoki. Initially, it would damage his arm to use the technique, but Hiei later perfected the technique.
- Jaou Ensatsu Rengoku Shou: Also known as Fist of the Mortal Flame, Hiei can channel the flames from Human World into one or both of his fists. He uses this technique to enhance his hand-to-hand combat abilities.
- Flamethrower: Hiei blasts human world flames from his mouth and uses it as a long ranged attack.
- Jaou Ensatsu Ken: Also known as Sword of the Darkness Flame, Hiei can channel flames in order to forge a sword of fire. It is weaker than Dragon of the Darkness Flame, but is much less dangerous to use.
