Yami Sukehiro is a foreigner from the Hino Country and the first captain of the Clover Kingdom's Black Bull squad of the Magic Knights. He is also a former member of the Grey Deer squad. He is currently a member of the Traveling Strike Force as a senior member.
Yami is uncouth, reckless, slightly hypocritical, and prone to delivering death threats at the slightest provocation. Despite this he is highly respected both for his rank and power who was able to see potential in Asta as such recruited him into his squad.
He believes that action speak louder than words and has quite the temper being easily angered over small things such as being bumped by another person or interrupted when talking. Yami also has a penchant for intimidation whether he uses threatening words or physically harms his target. He also tends to immediately go straight for a more physical solution to any problems or confrontations, such as when he destroys a part of the squad's headquarters to calm his subordinates. Despite being very bull-headed, reckless, and unrefined , Yami is an experienced and perceptive warrior, picking apart his opponent's strategies with a glance and is constantly trying to come up with counters for them.
Furthermore, he also prefers instilling tough love to his subordinates by giving them dangerous missions. He believes that it is the best way for them to overcome their limits and grow stronger. Yami also does not discriminate people according to their social status or circumstances where he is willing to accept Luck Voltia, Noelle Silva, and Asta to join his ranks, even though he is aware of each of their problems. His concern for them is likely tied to his own circumstances, being treated as an outcast in his youth like they are.
He shows great loyalty to those he cares for, such as his squad and his fellow Magic Knight captains, or to his master Julius for taking under his wing and giving him a future. He holds respect and gratitude for those who also saves those his cares for, such as when Sojiro came in and saved Asta from punishment from the Magic Parliament, he and entire squad volunteered to follow him to fight back against the Cult Of The End.

War of Discoveries(Prologue)
War of Discoveries(RWBY Campaign)
For saving Asta and Secre from the Magic Parliament, Yami (and the rest of his squad) was very grateful to the Grandmaster. So much after Sojiro informed them of the Cult Of The End attempts to destroy their world, Yami volunteered to fight with him without hesitation, saying the Black Bulls pay their debts to those who help their friends. Yami bonded with the Old Watcher after they welcomed him as his group as honorary members of their squad, the two talked about there past and the impacts from people in there life's, the toast a drink as new friends.
As such he and his squad joined Sojiro and his followers to stop the Cult. The two treat others as equals and with respect, each offering each other advise to organize a mission.
While, currently it is unknown his relationship with the class is, the young Pro-Heroes hold his strength in high regard and address him as captain. During their time training with him, Fumikage Tokoyami has come to trust him, although they can be intimidated by him when he threatens them, the same way he threatens his squad members (even though they know, he wouldn't actually kill him).
Yami first meet Gon when he came to his island, while he found him weird sometimes, he had come to like him, after Gon invited to his home to stay for the night. He fought to defend his island from an invasion of the Cult Of The End, and even tried to restrain himself from destroying Whale Island accidentally because he stated he thought Gon was a a good kid.
Yami faced the leader of the Phantom Troupe, Chrollo at the Battle Of Vale, to which both proved to be even match for each other. As the battle went on, Chrollo expressed an interest in Yami Dark Magic, whereas Yami begin to build up contempt for Chrollo due to his callous disregard for life, all in order for him to steal more abilities. It became more personal for Yami when Chrollo explained he plans to steal the abilities of the Black Bulls, Yami responded by delivering a Dark Cloaked Iai Slash onto him.
For their assault and intent to purge his world, Yami is an enemy of the Cult Of The End. Due to his destructive reputation, the Cult are wary of his strength as stated by Deacon Suzukaze.
