Niten (born Miyamoto Musashi) (1584 – June 13, 1645) is a Japanese swordsman and is considered to be among the greatest humani warriors to have ever lived. He is the only Humani to ever defeat Scathach in single combat.


He was made immortal by Benzaiten the Great Elder after he sliced an arrow shot by an Oni that was headed toward her out of the air.


  • Immortality: Niten gained Immortality from his Elder master, and therefore does not age (though he is vulnerable to injury and poison). Unless his master chooses to take his immortality away, Niten may live for thousands or millions of years.

The Necromancer

Niten is first introduced as a companion of Aoife. He is calm of temperament and acts as a sort of cooling influence on Aoife. He accompanies Aoife, the Flamels, and the twins to Prometheus's Shadowrealm and later pursues the hypnotized Josh to Dee's office in San Francisco. During the resulting battle, Niten attempts to kill Dee, but his swords shatter upon contact with the Doctor.

The Warlock

Niten is seen at the barbecue with a huge assortment of Elders and Immortals, where he receives a jade tablet from Abraham the Mage, telling him his destiny. He and Prometheus act as bait when the Lotan attacks the city from the bay. However, as the dragon drains his aura, Flamel uses alchemy to transform it back into an egg.

The Enchantress

His main (and final) role in the series was (with Prometheus's help) to stop the Drakon from reaching San Francisco and demolishing the city and the people within it. In that battle he was brought down by dozens of Spartoi who attacked him at once. Tsagaglalal arrived just in time to see Niten and Prometheus collapse. She screamed her rage and revived Prometheus, who made her change her mind and resurrect Niten instead.


  • During the Enchantress, Niten noted that he had his first duel at the age of thirteen, and has long since fallen out of love with duelling.
  • In the Epilogue of the Enchantress, in Marethyu's letter, he says: "P.P.S. Niten and Aoife got married. Scathach was the bridesmaid. Everyone cried."
