Pan has light-coloured hair that he keeps slicked back. He often wears the Special Fire Force orange jumpsuit with the collar partly open and wear a whistle around his neck.
Pan is a level-headed individual and firefighter. As a member of Company 4, Pan prioritises the safety of others above all else. This results in him willing to ally with supposedly dangerous individuals if it insures fewer casualties and honouring the dead, although he is aware that he and his team need to hide this type of alliance from the higher-ups and canon publicly make a stance. He has a great amount of respect for Sōichirō Hague. He is uncomfortable with his Captain's newfound fascination with being burned with the Adolla. He is not without his odd behaviour. Pan also attempts to communicate important information through blowing his whistle, which very few people can understand and results in others being confused due to a lack of information. Despite this he is a respected leader, even leading joint company expeditions into other countries and eventually becoming Captain of Company 4.
Pan is a Third Generation who can increase an individual's heat resistance to reduce the amount of damage they take from other flames, which he activates by blowing his whistle. This ability is called Buff Stacking.
He can also enhance the powers of other pyrokinetics. His powers have earned him the title of 'Master Firefighter of Buffs' and make him an essential part of Company 4's strategies and teamwork.
He can even use these buffs on himself to enhance his physical strength and durability, using Buff Stacking to reach the superhuman levels required to destroy doppelgängers. With the force of his Rending Multistacked Drill being strong enough to destroy his own gloves and uniform as it tears through his opponents. Although using his abilities to that extent places a tremendous strain on his body.
