Academy City

Accelerator (一方通行アクセラレータ Ippō Tsūkō (Akuserarēta)?, lit. "One-Way Road") is second protagonist in the A Certain Magical Index (Toaru Majutsu no Index) series. He is the 1st-ranked Level 5 and the strongest esper currently residing in Academy City.

Accelerator's ability is Vector Transformation (ベクトル変換 Bekutoru Henkan?). It allows him to control vectors (anything with magnitude and direction) such as bullets, heat, and electricity. It is both passive and active in usage, or can even be referred to as defensive and offensive. The ability is normally applied by transforming vectors, though its applications are limitless. Because of Accelerator's massive intellect and calculating prowess, he can quickly understand and apply unknown or strange laws through the world of numbers.

He normally reads manga and drinks coffee in his free time and is somewhat lazy. But when he is enraged or excited such as when fighting a strong or amusing opponent, he breaks into a wide grin and laughs, giving him a maniacal and sadistic appearance.

"I strive for something beyond the strongest, that challenging me would be the most ridiculous thought ever, that fighting me would be a sin!" ~To Misaka 10032 in Vol. 3~
