"If the dark sky is me, then the sparkling stars are Tsubaki."
At the beginning of the series, Black☆Star starts off as rather arrogant, loud, immature and egotistic. Although he fights as an assassin, he prefers to forget the Way of Assassination by shouting and making his presence known, the reason being that he is a massive attention-seeker. He cannot stand having someone else get more attention than himself, and will proceed to beat down anyone more popular than him so he can be popular again. His loudness is often shown in his tendency to often shout when he speaks and his trademark cries of 'Ha Ha!' or 'Yahoo!'
As one of the oldest of the main cast of characters, Tsubaki is one of the most mature characters, along with Maka. However, she is not as short-tempered as the Scythe Meister, and is very patient and forgiving. She, like Maka, demonstrates a much more practical and level headed personality than most of the other characters. She has a very magnanimous, polite and gentle personality and always tries to help or comfort her friends even when she has no idea how to help. She is caring and understanding and sometimes acts as the mediator when her friends fight, and her understanding and insight sometimes makes her the agony aunt figure for people who are troubled. She cares deeply for her friends, and does not seem fond of things that might make them upset, even going so far as to suggest to Soul and Black☆Star to nullify the dare Maka has to do after she loses the basketball game, due to not knowing the rules. She often worries about her friends if they are in danger, and is upset when the people she cares about are hurt.
1) In his autograph, Black☆Star writes his name in all caps and uses the A in Black to draw the top point of a star he draws, instead of writing the actual word, STAR. He also has a line coming out in between the bottom left points of the star to make the lower part of the R in STAR.
2) 'Tsubaki' (椿) is a reference to the Japanese camellia flower. The kanji in her last name, 'Naka' (中) means 'inside' whilst 'Tsukasa' (務) is a word usually used as a verb, meaning 'to endeavor.'
3) In Chapter 49, Black☆Star's name is written in characters that read ankoku no sekai (Meaning "World of Darkness") and glossed with kana indicating that it should be pronounced "Black Star" when read outloud.
