An elite Contractor with the Messier Code BK-201. Hei plays a gentle-hearted student from China named Lee Shengshun when undercover. He becomes an apathetic and guiltless killer when on his missions. Joining an organization of unknown ambitions known only as Syndicate, Hei is searching for the whereabouts of his sister Pai, whom he lost several years ago when the South American gate imploded. Hei's power allows him to generate electricity.

View spoilerHide spoilerHei's power is not just to generate electricity that is just the tip of the iceberg it is revealed at the end of the 1 season that Hei's power is the same power as of his sister "Molecular Manipulation" which his sister used to merge with him.

He is hotly pursued by the Japanese government for his involvement in multiple assassinations. He acts as the warrior/spy/assassin of his team.

View spoilerHide spoilerHei seems to have no renumeration for his Contract, however from the first season of DTB and from the first OVA of DTB - Kuro no Keiyakusha Gaiden, it seems that eating a lot of food might be it. He is a skilled assassin capable of defeating contractors without even resorting to his powers, and was revealed, at the end of Season 1 that he got his powers from his sister by merging with her.
