The protagonist and hero of this story. The first transfer student in the history of the Academia and the president of the Speculative Detective Club (an organization he founded himself). By all appearances, he’s a clean-cut young man in early adulthood. Tesla himself, however, claims to be 72 years of age.
His past is full of mystery. Some say he spent years working in a prominent research institution in the USA; others claim that he’s a globe-trotting revolutionary with a long history of insurrectionist activities. There are even those who believe him to be a mortal enemy of Lord Edison, a founding father of the United States. Tesla himself refuses to dignify any of these rumors with a response.
When using his lightning powers, Tesla is automatically equipped with a powerful mechanized belt and gloves. In addition, a long, flowing scarf appears around his neck, crackling with electricity.
