Personality and character

Azama is a calm, laid-back priest who invites others to philosophize with him. Despite this, he has a sharp tongue, and will not hesitate to point out the faults in other people, while maintaining his calm personality. This gets on the nerves on others, even his superior.[2]

Level 40 quote

Ah, it is you! I should have known from the ever-busy pitter-pat of your footsteps. You must have far too much free time on your hands if you're always spending it with me. Why, who am I to deserve it? I'm just a holy man, not worth even the time of day. Now, speaking of free time, do you plan to ever free me of my time here with you? I mean, of course, final release. The good-bye. The farewell. The ta-ta and toodle-oo! I shouldn't let myself be troubled by the idea that we'd be separated. But I've grown fond of you. I'd like to give you more of my time, not less. So please, don't give me any of that sort of free time—not for years and years. All right?
— After reaching level 40 at five-star Rarity, in Heroes.

  2. "Azama: Good morning, Lady Hinoka. I see you still haven't sorted out a suitable hair-care routine. Your bed head almost makes you look like a giant red insect!
    Hinoka: Excuse me? This is how I style my hair on purpose!
    Azama: Oh! So you spend all your time on your hair... That must be why your clothes are so wrinkled.
